Woden Wake?

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.

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.

If they want to hold a wake at a bus interchange fine i’ll ride by and judge, call me old fashioned but it does seem a strange place for one

I’m not calling you old fashioned, just saying people deal with things differently.

They were probably judging you as you went past, cranky old man, waving his walking stick while he is riding past in his lycra on a bike with panniers on the sides and a basket with a flower on the front.

So I guess it’s fair, but maybe you should let them deal with their friends death how they see fit, they can’t go to a club or pub and have a wake or anything like that, this is how they did it.

Thankyou. <3

You don’t know me or my friends so calling us bogan’s are some serious allegations. That is what we are doing, that would be the reason we are not at school! Here we go with the vandalising again seriously are your lives that pathetic that you have to complain about the same thing over and over again?!

I know you and your friends… I know your type. The language , the tone, the irrationality.

Now I know my question, written in proper english, might be a bit difficult for you to understand so let me ask it again.
What do you and your compadres actually contribute to society?
Don’t wait for a translation… answer me now!

WHAT DO ME AND MY COMPADRES CONTRIBUTE TO SOCIETY?!
well let me tell you, we go to school, we have jobs, you sit at home all day chucking a tantrum over a wall and being disrespectful towards someone who has passed away a week ago.
do you even go to woden interchange and how does it affect you?!
simple if you dont like it then DO NOT look at it if it annoys you that much.

    In my defence I’ve been a bit busy starring out the obscenities strewn through the posts of Michael’s friends. (and deleting a lot more comments being unkind to Michael’s memory than of his friends by the by)

    I’ll just have to get by with the balls I’ve got.

I’m just going to go out on a limb here and say that questioning a grieving teenager’s right to a place in society based on subjective ideas of ‘contribution’ is not exactly constructive.

You are unbelievable, ever think that maybe when someone dies you need time off school? No point in going if your just going to cry the whole time.

Then cry at home, or at a friends house at some type of wake, dont go vandalising public property.
hurrrr durrrr

I think you have all managed to put your point across that you DONT want the wall to stay there well do you know what its not f***ing up to you in any way shape or form, i personally along with many others will just keep putting it back up if you even remove a small fragment of it. Have a think about it, your friend dies, you want to spend your time where he used to go the most, in this case is at Woden Interchange. Go ahead and call us all Bogan’s saying anything and everything you can think of to insult us, but at the end of the day you are the one’s being complete assholes to a young boy who didnt deserve to die and was far too young. As for Bogan’s wearing ‘Trackies’ and Jumpers and having ‘rats tails’ are you really that unhappy with your life that you feel the need to comment on little things like that. Seriously grow up, you insensitive f***s!

Imissyou, answer me one question… what do you and your bogan compadres actually contribute to society?

If you don’t like the negativity on here towards “bogans” then please, inform us of what redeeming qualities you have… what you do to make our society better and add to the rich tapestry of the Canberra community?

Apparently when you lose a friend, you’re allowed to truant, vandalise public property and threaten people.
