Young Kambah burglars doing it wrong

By johnboy - 15 November 2011 23

ACT Policing has apprehended three south-side youths following an aggravated burglary in Kambah last night (Monday, 14 November).

About 7.25pm police attended Rounsevell Street in relation to a reported aggravated burglary.

Upon arrival police checked the residence, finding no people inside.

A short time later, police located an injured juvenile male in a nearby alleyway. Police will allege that he injured himself gaining entry to the house. Property taken from the residence was also found in the alleyway.

ACT Ambulance attended and conveyed the alleged offender to The Canberra Hospital.

About 8pm two more juvenile males were apprehended a short distance away from where the incident occurred.

They were taken to the ACT Watch House and were later released into the custody of their parents/guardian.

Investigations are ongoing in relation to the youth’s involvement in the burglary.

Police urge members of the public to contact Police Operations if they are suspicious of any persons or activity in their neighbourhood on 131444, or contact Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000. Information can be provided anonymously.

…rather than putting a gaol near Canberra, why not have one in the middle of one of Australia’s many deserts? No walls – if they’re dumb enough to run off into the desert, we’re down one criminal. Those that are smart enough to stay at the gaol would be those with a chance of being rehabilitated, so also lets us focus ‘2nd chance’ efforts where they can actually do some good.

I wasn’t fishing. It was a straighforward and outright question.

The reason I was curious is because you clearly think you know better. Not only better than the system, but better than any person here who disagrees with you. Someone who is so sure that everyone else is wrong and that they are right would, I think, have considerable experience in this field and I was curious as to what your experience was. If you don’t care to elaborate on your experience then that’s your affair.

For all your criticism of the current system I’ve yet to see you come up with a logical, rational alternative. Actually, there was one on the thread about the people who threw rocks at a taxi and injured the occupants. You suggested something like making the offenders work at a rehabilitation facility for people who had been injured in car accidents. I actually thought that was a good idea.

As for the rest…

Everyone I know is aware that kids from abusive or disadvantaged backgrounds are more likely to be exposed to a crap life. This isn’t news. To anyone. Honestly though it’s pretty hard to give a shit about societal factors when you’ve been on the receiving end of a break in or violent assault. More so when you consider that most people probably know at least one person who has had a hard life that hasn’t turned into a criminal.

You mentioned in your earlier post here that we should all stop blaming. Well how about you set an example by not blaming society for the actions of the anti-social criminal element.

I think you use words like disadvantaged, mental-illness, drug addicition, etc as an excuse for the actions of criminals. Criminals who have made a choice to do what they do. And I think you try to blame society for the choices these people make. I think you expect the entire justice system to change to fit the view you have that it’s everyone except the criminals fault. The fact is you’ll always have a problem with the police, the justice system, the prisons and society unless it’s all done the way you think is right.

Lets just agree to disagree and move on.

What’s your story Violet? Do you have family in prison or something? You really seem to have a beef with the whole system. I’m genuinely curious.

Why is it that I have to have a “beef” because I question the current “system”? It always seems to come back to me having an “attitude” problem with the system rather than me trying to encourage looking at other perspectives and societal factors. If something’s broke you either throw it out, rebuild it, recycle it, send it off to an expert for repair or work out a way to build a new and better model.

As for your question about whether I have family in prison. Why is that relevant to this thread or my comments about information sharing with the public and lynch mob mentality? I’m genuinely curious as to why you are fishing for my “story” and so happy to be able to give you a big fat NO for MY answer 🙂

Their “human rights” will trump our right to have the scumbag criminals in our midst publicly identified.

What “rights” do you suggest the public have to that information and why? For what purpose do you suggest the public use that information? Is it going to give the public a couple of individuals to blame so they can feel better about crime rates? Do you expect the subsequent naming, shaming, possible lynching or incarceration to reduce the crime rate? If so, you’re just being silly. Come on peoples……think, discuss, stop bitching and blaming, look at realistic plausible solutions!

Agreed. Sounds like bored, naughty kids to me. They need a solution – not an angry mob.

Stuffed up the quotes last time.

mickey if you’ve got the balls to do it, why not. The courts are a waste of time and the vile libertarians harp on about the rights of the criminal. When the law can’t help you, what alternative do you have? Bend over and cop it or take matters into your own hands?

But then he wouldn’t have been able to rat on his mates. Look at the big picture. Granted they will all be let off with less than a slap on the wrist, but we must get them to name names
