Woden Wake?

By thy_dungeonman 26 February 2011 47

So I was riding through Woden interchange on my way to the bus and I noticed a whole lot of teenagers hanging around on the steps playing music and such, pretty standard occurrence “don’t these people have anywhere better to gather” I thought, as usual.

But then I noticed there were a whole lot for candles and flowers in front of a graffiti covered wall (that has timetables on the other side) and it appeared to be some kind of “memorial service” for lack of a better term.

Although Woden interchange has a lot of assaults they surely were not killed there, so they may have just graffitied that wall or perhaps (like their friends) spent a lot of time hanging out at the interchange.

I assume it wasn’t Mully since they weren’t gathered at the toilet door and the only thing I was able to read on the wall going past was “Micheal Alexander” but that may have been the name of a well-wisher or another inspired artist.

Whoever it was I would hope that I don’t spend enough time at the Woden interchange to warrant my wake being held there.

What’s Your opinion?

simple if you dont like it then DO NOT look at it if it annoys you that much. As for ‘johnboy’ if you had even half the balls then you would be telling them to simply GO AWAY and stop being so disrespectful to the deceased and simply dont put their comments on here.

really? so i can walk to your house, spray paint a penis onto your house and car? Just don’t look at it if it annoys you right? ok, post your address here please.

Also, you’re an idiot for being rude to johnboy. First of all, he creates a website so that issues can be discussed. Then he has to sit here, read through all your sh*thouse thoughtless comments and censor all the vulgar language. As far as i can tell, he hasnt actually given his opinion, mainly because he doesn’t want psychos like you coming around with your “bros” to sort him out. idiot.

man you have some hide to talk about ‘thoughtless comments’. Trolling grieving teens is about as thoughtless as you can get.

Please leave it to the police and who ever manages the interchange. We don’t need people like you sitting behind a computer making comments. Thankyou.

Then perhaps find a more civilised way to pay tribute to your friend than to vandalise walls and do Mully-like tributes on toilet doors.

Don’t ignore questions about such things as redeeming qualities, otherwise people will just continue to assume the graffiti writers/vandals are the bogans they are showing themselves to be. There’s no point just telling us all to be ignorant, shutup and stop making comments because it just doesn’t work that way. People gossip, it’s a fact of life, it’s human nature! You can’t stop people from gossiping — but you can refrain from acting like bogans. That way you won’t be treated like bogans.

Instead of covering the walls with ugly graffiti, take some pointers from Davo111 and organise something respectful and constructive.

like i said, speak to the council and make a suggestion, NOT “do it without permission”.

The fact of the matter is, unless these kids grow up and clean the spray paint themselves. They’re going to have a constant war with the painters and the police, ruining people opinion of Michael and his friends, and further developing their criminal record.

The very best they can do now is earn some respect back from the community, clean up the mess they’ve made (with permission of the council) and move on to more tasteful forms of respecting the dead.

I continually complain about the vandalism because you dont accept the fact it is vandalism. You didnt get permission, you made permanent marking on public property. Thats what vandalism is.

You want honest feedback on what you should be doing?

– Call up the council tomorrow with your buddies and organise a time to paint over the walls and doors that have been spray-painted. Remove anything that is left on the ground next to the wall, sort out what should be given to the family and what is to be thrown out.
– Ask the council permission to place a small plaque up at Pine Island (at your cost)
– Organise an event (perhaps a BBQ?) where all proceeds raised to kids alive do the five or a local swimming school or alcohol awareness programs
– Organise a CPR resuscitation chart to be installed at Pine Island.

I’m just brainstorming here, but these things are a lot more meaningful that spray-painting his name on a toilet door.

Please leave it to the police and who ever manages the interchange. We don’t need people like you sitting behind a computer making comments. Thankyou.
