Chamberlains - complete legal services for business

Wanniassa Carnage

By johnboy - 6 January 2009 67

The Police posted a link to a media release on this but, as is so often their way, the link is a dud.

The Canberra Times, however, has picked up the story of three Canberra men and two Yass women attacking another bloke in Wanniassa.

    The ACT Magistrates Court heard Falicia Connors, 18, Harold Connors, 20, Robert Connors, 22, Liza Simpson, 18, and Kentyn Obah, 20, attacked 35-year-old James Andrew Chapman and his friend Amanda Hindmarsh at Malahide Court on Saturday night.

    Prosecutors say the five launched an unprovoked assault on Mr Chapman, a neighbour of two of the alleged attackers, at the public housing complex just after 10pm.

    Police allege that, when they arrived on the scene, they encountered Ms Hindmarsh, who told the officers, ”They’re throwing a shopping trolley at him. I’m surprised he’s still alive.”

Sounds like the young turks have gotten in over their heads.

UPDATED: Hooray! The AFP media release is now online!

… given the age of the victim, I wonder if he may have been Mrs Connors ex …he’s 35, her kids 18,20 and 22. In bogan world that puts her around 35-40. Makes sense!

Falicia – that is up there with the best of bogan names. Wonder if she got a nickname something like Fellatio … and whether she earnt it.

Well, that’s mature.

Does this mean that the two women came all the way from Yass for some biffo?

When is the next date for court hearing of this case?

WMC,

Sadly, it would appear so.

I see from the Crimes that Harold Connors has been charged with giving police a false name – maybe Bart Simpson claiming he was there with his sister Lisa?

Only if there are cameras and we can make bets online or at the TAB.

I know we don’t always agree, but this has to be the best bloody idea I’ve heard in ages!

And I knew I’d heard one of those names before. I hope it’s not the same Kentyn (p22). Quite an (alleged) fall and a long way from home if it is.

an unsupervised prison island ruled by the baddest

Malahide Court? Any connection with Formaldehide Court? With a name like that you can’t expect luxury living.

Further evidence to support converting Tasmania into an unsupervised prison island ruled by the baddest. You know it makes sense.

Gee, Lisa Simpson. I thought she was the smart one in The Simpsons . . .

Chuck them all out in the street and stop using our tax payer money to house these animals!

Mrs Connors must be proud of her wee bairns, grown up to be such pillars (or would pillocks be better?)of the community.

There need to be some adjustments made to harold and roberts names so that they fit in with the rest of the crowd though. Maybe Robert could change to Robbyrt and Harold to hayrolyd…

Wow…with names like those, they never stood a chance.

Falicia? Liza? Kentyn?

I miss the weekly bogan names update.
