Teenager shot in Downer

By Thumper - 29 November 2007 29

The SMH is reporting that a 16 year old has been shot in the hip by a 63 year old man in Downer at 2.30 yesterday.

Officers searched the older man’s home last night and allegedly found two unauthorised firearms and a large amount of ammunition and the man is due to face the ACT Magistrates Court today.

What’s Your opinion?

so vic when did you first realize you had become one of those crotchety old men who have forgotten their teenage years

You’re jumping to conclusions. The boy wasn’t a burglar. He was just out on the piss underage and had the misfortune to hide in the wrong yard from the cops. The old guy shot him because he couldn’t sleep not because he was protecting anything.

Should have shot him in the nads (assuming he didn’t). At least then potential boy burglar will never pass on those faulty genes of his.

Zero sympathy here.

“No legal defence to shoot somebody to protect property. You’ve been watching too much American TV.”

You can never watch too much American TV! Anyway, I don’t actually watch much TV – I watch mainly porn and war movies! 🙂

Terrible shot – needs more range practice

The 63yr old could be in strife if he comes before terrence though. Unless he’s a druggo.

No legal defence to shoot somebody to protect property. You’ve been watching too much American TV.

“When it aint self defence, you are just shooting someone.”

He was self-defending his own property: it was being invaded by the teen, so he defended it!

It was a pleasure. After all, I couldn’t let DMD walk away from here disappointed! 🙂

I blame GetUp!

da,n, i wanted to have this thread title be dyslexically read as ‘downer shot by teenager’…

TAD 4:11 pm 29 Nov 07

I think PROTECT is the key word.

When it aint self defence, you are just shooting someone.

Ooh Downer scandal! Anyone know what street it was on?

(Mr Evil, thank you for providing the vigilantism that DMD requested, you are a gentleman and a scholar)

What happened to people’s right to protect themselves from young hoons. You can never have too many guns or too much ammo!

I bet the young punk is a gay, junky, uni student who voted Labor last weekend! 🙂
