Sydney style schoolyard stabbing

By PBO - 9 March 2010 34

Well, ABC are reporting that our impressionable youngsters have caught up with the latest trend amongst stupid youngsters, Knives.  It seems that our kids are now sick of filming burnouts on you tube and have taken to stabbing eachother. 

Apparently a youngster was stabbed in an altercation outside Erindale College at lunch.

Hmmm, was it Drugs?  Was he seeing someone elses ex?  Oh, the chinese whispers in my mind are going into overdrive.

[ED] Skidbladnir also sent this info in including the Police report below:
Apparently all is not well in the educational institutions of the Thuggeranong Badlands.

ABC Online report which identifies Erindale College
AFP Media have put out the following:
Tuesday, 09 March 2010
ACT Policing is investigating a stabbing in a car park outside a South Canberra College which occurred about 1pm today (March 9).
A 17-year-old male has received non life threatening injuries as a result of an altercation with a male offender.
The victim has been conveyed to The Canberra Hospital for treatment.
The offender is believed to have left the scene in a vehicle with another male, enquires to locate the offender are continuing.
Police are currently onsite speaking to witnesses and would encourage any further witnesses who are yet to speak to police to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
Initial enquiries reveal that this incident appears to be a targeted attack and was not within the school grounds. No other injuries or incidents have been reported to police from the school today.

So if you were in the Erindale College carpark earlier this afternoon and either stabbed someone, helped someone abscond, or witnessed this particular Erindale College stabbing, the AFP would like to talk to you.

What’s Your opinion?

(But I have no idea how or why this is a Sydney-style of stabbing, unless PBO is expert in schoolyard stabbing methods…)

I called it that because there always seems to be schoolyard stabbings up there and it rhymes, I would have used Brisbane in the title but it is hard to alliterate. Personally I think that it is BS when folks use knives.

Try a spoon, it takes more skill and it is blunt so it hurts more.

Just nuke Kambah and Richardson, add a small area of Gordon and all the problems on the Southside will vanish

Even though the stabbing was in Wanniassa.

OMG!
I had no idea I moved to a country that was similar to China.
Who decided what was troublesome and who paid for the move? Was it whole families? People with children I suppose.

So Civic? Is Civic it’s own or does it belong to the North or South.
Seems I always hear of things happening down there around the clubs.
The whole north south thing is silly in my eyes.

Also I find the constant insinuations that Tuggeranong has more thugs than other areas very irritating. I think you’ll find that loutish behaviour goes with the territory when you have a statistical bulge of teens . . . so look out, Gungers, you’re next – nothing to do with the Northside/Southside divide, so please stop villifying Tuggers.

I am a Canberran born and bred… but have recently moved across the boarder to Queanbeyan (a nice part of Queanbeyan) and I am quite enjoying myself there.
Queanbeyan gets it’s fair share of knocks on this website, but am I arcing up?
Hell no… it’s a joke… build a bridge.

And yeah… there are parts of Queanbeyan.
You Canberrans stick to the main street, so we can enjoy the real country town behind the slovenly facade ;p

Mine was submitted yesterday after I’d had a walk around the Hyperdome in my lunchbreak, where I overheard my gossip from the 3pm influx of teens.
I heard “Some student stabbed a guy over drugs”, “Some druggo stabbed a student”, and “Some guys stabbed a student’s boyfriend”.
I assumed students would know if students were stabbing other students.

But there’s more coverage from the Crimes and Louis Andrews mentioning (assuming the pair ‘assisting with enquiries’ are perpetrators) that neither stabber or stabbee were students, just “related to students”.
It also looks like it was the carpark shared with the library, but which is primarily used by students.

However, having lived for my first two decades in and around Tuggeranong, I submit that Wanniassa\Gowrie\Monash\Isabella Palins currently have greater-than-normal bogan density, as well as the teen bulge due to being the Nappy Valley of yesteryear, but Lanyon has some exceptional social issues of its own.

Actually there is more to the divide than you realise, during the build up to the olympics many troublesome families were relocated (psuedo-gentrification)from Sydney to places like Isabella Plains and such. With that the crime rate soared at the time and we are now used to it and accept it as daily life.

I’ll take your accusation of villifying and vindicate it.

“Sydney style schoolyard stabbing”, do they stab in a different style in Melbourne schools?

Apparently so, they dance differently in Melbourne (Melbourne Shuffle), so why not stab differently? Sydney they stab upper body so why wouldnt Melbournians (Melbourne Stab Shuffle?) stab the lower part? We could call it Mexican style.

All of the tags and references to ‘schoolyard stabbings’ seem a little misleading since the police are saying that the victim was not a student at Erindale.

Tuggeranong has more thugs than other areas.

Yep. So unfair. As if you’ld never see any criminal behaviour anywhere else …

The carpark is probably the one that is shared by the public library and health club and shopping centre users. I understand the offender is not a student. Seems unfair to implicate the school given this info . . .

So the carpark is not part of school grounds.

Well maybe this kid should go learn self defense so in future this wont happen.
