What can you get from a brothel laptop?

johnboy 15 June 2011 27

ACT Policing is investigating an aggravated robbery at a brothel in Fyshwick overnight (Tuesday, June 14).

About 11.15pm three men have entered the Mi Mi Club on Lyell Street.

The manager has tried to usher the men into the waiting room when one of the men has punched him twice in the face, knocking him to the ground.

A second man has walked towards the reception counter, taking a laptop computer before all men left the location in an unknown car.

The offenders are described as Indian Sub-Continental appearance, one wearing a light grey hooded jumper, the other two wearing hooded jumpers, with solid builds.

Anyone who may be able to assist police with the investigation is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

Or an anybody? Only independents pay for sex?

I wonder if they just woke up after a blinder, realised what they did and that they used their credit card to pay for it, and figure this was the only to to try expunge the records before their women find out?

The blackmail strategy has some merit though… Like Frots said – some nervous people around…

After a brief period where ACT Policing’s public statements were written by someone with English as a first language, we are back to the work experience kid/boss’s partner being in charge.

“Have, has and has” are redundant.

If “all men” left the location, I guess the brothel’s business went to zero, since staff and customers of the male gender departed.

There is no such thing as an “unknown car”.

What does “Indian Sub-Continental appearance” mean? Bizarre.

Two of them were wearing jumpers with solid builds. Whereabouts can I buy a jumper with a solid build?

Fail.

Perhaps someone has just come back from leave?

Maybe you should write to the media team with your feedback instead of sharing your boring pedantry with everyone here.

At least they’re not saying alleged after every point!! Deadset the most overused word in police statements!

Would the owners be silly enough to keep records of illegal workers on the office laptop?

Um, I’m pretty sure that this incident is [i]not[/i] the result of a new Fair Work Australia/Immigration investigation technique.

I can't believe it has been left to me to pull out the obvious answer.

If it happens any time in the next week or so, it will be just too much of a coincidence.

I also found the wording a little strange. Like when you get a cup of tea and it has too much sugar in it. Perhaps it is time our Pakistani/Bangladeshi/Sri Lankan/Indian Sub-Continental mates reclaimed the word ‘curry’?

I too would like to think there’s a more devious and calculated blackmail plot here, involving the tactical retrieval of sensitive material by three ‘possibly’ Indian men. I just don’t buy it so far.

I look forward to standing corrected.

I would think the chances of the laptop having been wiped and ready for sale already are far more likely…

A distinct possibility, but perhaps for a different reason. What if they wanted to make sure the information on that laptop disappeared?

I love the awkward wording about the general ethnicity of the men. It’s racist to say they looked like Indians but it’s OK to say they looked like they came from the area around India so now we have the phrase “Indian Sub-Continental appearance”.

Thank you politically correct wording!

Entirely appropriate I would have thought if you aren’t sure they are Indian.

[Mark Warey] I would like to apologize to the entire cast, crew and audience of the Riotact. Had I known that it was a brothel, and not a nightclub as I was informed, I would never have entered it. I’d also like to apologise to the young ladies involved and offere to pay for thier hospital bills and cleaning costs. I promise that I will never again enter such an establishment. [/Mark Warey]
