The DJ McLaughlin inquest

By Special G - 26 June 2008 54

One of the most heatedly discussed topics on RA is back. The death of DJ McLaughlin by shooting himself in the stomach after a two hour standoff, whilst on the run from Police. Previous threads can be found here, here, here and here. For the newer readers this included some very emotional posts from friends of DJ and some counters by the RA crowd which make for some good reading.

Crimes is reporting here. with details his girlfriend knew nothing about what was going on and thought he was going to hand himself in to Police.

I expect this will be covered fairly well as the inquest continues.

What’s Your opinion?

When I was too young to remember I was apparently at a barbecue in Melbournes eastern suburbs that was also attended by Ronnie Biggs – or so says my aunt. He was apparently a regular vistor to Australia during the 1970s.

True. The one criminal I was unfortunate to have known would steal of his own grandmother and not bat an eye lid. No conscience what so ever.

Please don’t speak ill of the dead:

Make fun of them instead!

I’ve got an awesome idea for a movie. We dig up DJ’s corpse, put sunglasses on him, then have wacky 80s adventures together. We can call it ‘Weekend at DJ’s’.

Oh I think i saw that film. It had twins all dressed in white.

The Krays?! Wow. Tehy were uber-criminals, like Ronnie Biggs. AND they were played by two blokes from Spandau Ballet in the film (who are brothers). So there you go.

fair enough he may have a been a criminal, but im sure everyone out there knows someone who has done bad things in their life or has family who have done wrong

No, actually, most people don’t have criminals in their families or circles of friends. Criminals are unusual (luckily).

My family knew the Kray Twins, does that count?

Criminals m8’s tend to think their criminal friends are top people ….. maybe because it’s not their house they are going to break into, or then again they have been known to S%^T in their own nest !!
