you forget that it wasn’t just mully who died there, 3 other people also died, including a baby. While the merits of their lives will no doubt be dissected and derided by the masses again, the memorial was for them not him.

The two adults were criminal scum.

The baby wasn’t yet one, though.

You forgot the tree in Chifley that was rammed by those kids at 1:30AM. I have to drive past that tree almost every day and it almost makes me vomit to think that rather than regarding the kids and victims as the scum they are – drinking, breaking into businesses and speeding in suburban streets – there are actually people who are regretful over the incident and have turned the site into a bizarre and very messy memorial. Good riddance to bad rubbish and let’s hope TAMS sends the chainsaws out there ASAP.

Congratulations. This is possibly one of the most hateful things I’ve ever read on the RA – and considering I’ve been following the site for at least 3 or 4 years, that’s saying something.

Go take a good hard look at yourself, and see if you can figure out just when your sense of humanity and compassion died.

Why were these trees cut down?

Poplars are politically incorrect. We need to remove all the poplars and willows in order to cause massive bank erosion.
At least, I *think* that’s the plan.

Poplar trees are notorious for rotting and falling apart.
Not a brilliant choice for a roadside planting

Hopefully they disposed of the flano shirts, empty bourbon cans and Mully memorial items in the most tasteless way possible.

As noted in post #3 the memorial items (crosses and a teddy bear) are still by the tree stump.

Whatever happened to the mother of the girl that was riding with shotgun with Mully?

I wonder how a flano would go through the tree chipper…. flano confetti sprayed everywhere!
Now if only we could get rid of the other pointless memorials from around Canberra for this – Woden interchange, random storm drains, and the back windows of every second hotted-up bogan commodore on the road.

“such is life” LOL…

Shame to lose the tree, but at least it served a noble purpose while it was alive – unlike Mully. I guess now his bogan family and mates will have to leave memorial cans of VB and Woodstock near the Woden bus interchange graffiti, under the back window stickers of their Commodores, or around each other’s neck tattoos.

A drive past there on Sunday revealed nothing more than a stump littered with the bogan accoutrements of the Mully Memorial.

You can take our tree, but you will never take our WOODSTOCK!!!
