The Michael Steep tribute video

By johnboy - 28 February 2011 46

With thanks to Sunshine for the tip, here’s a tribute video to Michael Steep, the victim of the Pine Island drowning.

Take the time to see him through his friend’s eyes as we debate the woden tribute to him.

Michael was doing his Year 10 Certificate at the CIT where I’m doing Youth Studies and he was a good-natured guy. I don’t think he’d want his friends’ tribute video edited just to please the likes of shadow boxer, Good old BCB, Wharrgarbll, gospeedygo, Pommy bastard or georgesgenitals – a fitting name for all you snobby upper class nut bags. As for Tooks, what’s wrong with standing behind a homeless guy asleep on a bench? Isn’t that photo raising some awareness? You lot just turn your backs on problems like that. And when a young person drowns, you see that as an opportunity to attack his friends who you look down upon judgmentally from your lofty perches. If your attitudes are in any way representative of wider attitudes out there, then it’s no wonder young people are feeling so hurt and betrayed. It’s no wonder we see violent riots on TV with so much hurt and anger. It doesn’t fade away quickly after something like this happens and to write such callous remarks so soon after a boy’s death is utterly reprehensible. How could you so coldly disregard the feelings of Michael’s family and friends at a time when they were still numb with shock? You pack of gutless thugs – that’s you, not the teenagers here. What sympathy were you talking about, shadow boxer? Respect comes before sympathy and you lot don’t even have any basic common human respect. You have no heart, any of you cowards. A boy drowned in an accident so you decide to air your snobby grievances. You all need to look inside yourselves and ask yourselves, “Why am I such a cowardly sadist?” Because you are sadists. The opposite of Michael. Nobody is perfect but Michael was a good-natured kid and the tribute shows him how he was. There’s nothing wrong with some reality. Thanks for posting this video and for making the nice memorial. Michael had a big heart and his friends loved him and it really shows to anyone who has a heart of their own! 🙂

You should show some respect.

Oh i love these sort of posts. A thread has officially died, nobody has commented on it for months, then a “friend” of the victim/deceased/defendant comes on to support their “bro”

Don’t sugar coat it, its obvious he was taking the piss. You might deny it now, but we’re not stupid. If i call up the soup patrol, would they have heard of this young man helping out?

so verbally attacking his friends who committed offences such as “property damage” “vandalism”, “disobeying police orders” and “disturbing the peace” isnt fair? why do my tax dollars have to fix up the things you’ve done?

The uk riots are caused by a bunch of idiots looking for an opportunity to damage and steal stuff.

I’m not going to bother responding to the rest of the crap, about how we’re all pathetic sadists. If you want to be the “bigger man”, write a cheque out to the council and police for the clean-up of the shrine you installed at woden. That includes the hourly wage of 20 officers who had to protect the cleaners.

I’ve gotta say, I mostly agree with pkatet19. Rereading this long dead thread I was reminded how nasty a lot of rioters were in the days and weeks following this boy’s death. I find the behaviour displayed by many of my fellow rioters much more shameful and socially obnoxious than a bunch of teenagers graffiti-ing a wall.

I’d just like to say I think some of you need to keep in mind that you’re talking about a KID here, a dead kid no less, and you’re being completely hateful towards him as though, because you think he was a ‘bogan’, there is no reason to be too sad about the loss of life.

The wonder of “run on” sentences…

Can’t help but feel you’ve missed the point here. Ach well, I said my piece. Over & out.
