Trouble in Watson this morning

By scootergal - 12 August 2008 29

I stopped by the Watson shops on my way to work this morning to find three police cars and a paddy wagon in the car park.  Apparently there was a man loitering outside the local school there, holding a knife. 

 It didn’t appear as though he was apprehended, and after taking statements, the police moved on.  Has anybody else heard anything about this?

What’s Your opinion?

No beetroot. Hmmm, but on the other hand, great pizzas.

The people who put beetroot in cans have missed a marketing opportunity. They could make little long-life packs of beetroot, taht people could store in their gloveboxes adn handbags and pockets, ready for when they get hamburgers with no beetroot.

Maybe he was in hiding waiting to ambush and mug someone coming out of Watson Take Away? That place has pretty sweet pizza and burgers, just like the old days when you were a kid and never thought about obesity and your cholesterol level.


I disagree on the burgers (no beetroot! bah!), but the fish and chips and pizzas there are fantastic.

Damn George Gregan to hell for retiring.

We need another christ-like figure to be held to account for all the sins of the world.

But you do see why the officer had to do this…

The man was in custody and therefore the police were responsible for him. If he had tripped over his shoelace and broken his nose they would have been liable from what I believe.

Apparently Police are responsible for the genocide in Rwanda

I’ve seen 3 police cars conducting traffic stops in 3 weeks, do I win a medal?! I think that’s a record or something eh

They were probably from Qbn. I saw a Qbn cop monstering a small truck east of the airport just before the overtaking lane last week.

They come to the ACT to get the doughnuts.
