A MOTHER was holding her 15-month-old baby when she stabbed another woman in the stomach outside a Sydney infants school, police allege.
According to police facts, Ms Hoang allegedly pulled out a 20cm long knife following an argument outside the school gate and stabbed Ms Nguyen in the lower abdomen.
Police allege the altercation between the women, who both served on the school’s P&C, stemmed from 28-year-old Hoang believing Ms Nguyen caused the break-up of her relationship.
Bloody knives – what ever happened to ‘bitch slapping’?
A local Catholic boys college has had one of its students killed during a knife attack. One of my sons went there, I know the Principal and often meet staff at social functions.
I feel for the parents and the college, as does the whole community.
Bloody knives – what ever happened to fisticuffs?
Darwin’s Natural Selection in action;
A MAN from a remote western desert community was last night being airlifted to a Perth hospital after he was shot by police with a Taser gun and engulfed in flames.
His sister, Morinda West, said Mr Mitchell was sniffing petrol in his mother’s house when police banged on the door and asked him to come out.
He eventually decided to leave and went to the front of the house with a lighter and a two-litre orange juice container full of petrol, she said.
“He must have put petrol on his face, then the policeman shot him with the Taser, that’s when the flames happened,” she said.
A police spokeswoman said a male police officer fired the Taser when Mr Mitchell ran at police with the petrol container and refused to stop when asked.
Petrol on your face and in your airways, 50,000 volts arcing across your face and body…..that’ll do it.
People who are against everything I think is reasonable want the issue of Tasers stopped. Seems silly to me – this fool might survive setting his face on fire but he wouldn’t have survived two 9mm rounds from a Glock pistol fired into the centre of the seen mass and that’s the only other option the policeman would have had.
Just picture it – brain damaged loser carrying 2 litres of petrol and a lighter approaching fast in a menacing manner.
AFTER days of tense negotiations, the US Navy rescue of an American sea captain came in a matter of seconds on Easter Sunday when a few sniper bullets killed three Somali pirates who authorities feared were about to kill him.
There is a simple and economic answer to pirates. Just have an Infantry section (10 men) on each ship. They don’t have to be special forces – just trained infantrymen.
A damn site cheaper than deploying destroyers.
MARCUS Einfeld is not well and will slide deeper into depression if he’s handed a full-time jail term for perjury, his psychiatrist has told a court.
A MOUNT Gambier man has been jailed for stealing and burning a prized luxury car that had been protected in a garage for more than 30 years.
Trashing an E-Type!
The cretin should’ve been bloody shot on site.
POLICE spraying fans with pepper spray in the middle of Australia’s showcase tennis tournament is bad for the nation’s image, Deputy PM Julia Gillard says.
Wrong – Thugs threatening police and throwing missiles is bad for our image. The fact that the Police stopped potential rioters with pepper spray sends a message to would-be trouble makers.
Sure, some bystanders received a minuscule amount of over spray but that has to be better than being accidentally hit by flying bodies as the police and thugs set to.
Ms Gillard said there was nothing wrong with barracking for a sporting side and it was understandable fans would turn out to support their ancestral homeland.
“What we don’t want to see of course is … barracking at sporting contests degenerate into aggressive conduct or aggressive behaviour,” she said
“The debate we’re having about what happened at the tennis is what side of the line the conduct was on.
We are not having a debate, you are.
“The police say that the conduct was well over the line into unacceptable and potentially violent behaviour and that’s why they reacted”
See, no debate.
A MAN has been arrested after a flaming shoulder bag was thrown over the fence of the Prime Minister’s Sydney residence, Kirribilli House.
Local police were called at 11.48am (AEST) after the man allegedly ignited the woven cotten bag and threw it over the gate, a NSW police spokeswoman said.
The Prime Minister was in Canberra at the time and no one was hurt but it is a bad start to the election campaign.
FOR at least six days, Anan Liu lay dead in the boot of her husband’s car outside their family home. For two of those days, police cordoned off the Keystone Avenue house while they looked for the young mother, clueless to her whereabouts.
Embarrassed Auckland police yesterday defended their decision not to make an earlier search of the car, saying they did not have the proper warrants.
Proper stuff-up. They should be embarrassed.
UPDATE: I can’t believe it happened on Keystone Avenue
Donna Mulhearn, 37, Jim Dowling, 50, Adele Goldie, 29, and Bryan Law, 51, were found guilty of a total of 14 charges, including trespassing in a prohibited area, damaging Commonwealth property and taking unlawful photographs of a defence site.
Bryan Law, the Cairns cab driver and anti-everything explains himself in this report at Web Diary;
in Alice Springs in May/June this year we’re running a parallel political program of information, protest and direct action outside the Court.
For those who come to Alice Springs, the nonviolence training will focus on foundation work for the formation and operation of small, autonomous affinity groups which undertake interventionary work against the U.S. war-fighting system.
Intervention contains an element of physical disruption to the war machine. In December 2005 we forced Pine Gap to “lock down” for four hours. In later months the government was forced to conduct a security assessment of Pine Gap and improve their security at a cost of millions (so they say – we’ll find out). We have driven up costs and made operations more difficult.
We are few in number and small in resources, and we constitute an efficient and effective means of addressing war and the emerging security/terrorist state.
To promote further actions of this nature we’ll be working hard at diversity, mutual respect, cooperation, fun, spirit, miracles, and a relaxed but determined revolutionary zeal to manifest Peace on Earth in the ways that are available.
I’ve had some debates with him when he was writing his anti-everything diatribes at Web Diary and would gladly see him out of circulation for awhile.
….Crown Prosecutor Hilton Dembo said that the case was the first time intruders had reached the technical support area of the base, and said the case was exceptional in its nature.
“They are serious offences striking at the heart of the national security and the national interest,” he said.
Our friend Bryan sees himself as a martyr and asks the judge to throw the book at him telling Justice Thomas that he “is prepared for a custodial sentence.”
“I ask that Your Honour does not grant a suspended sentence”, he said.
“That would be cruel.
“I would not be able to abide by its conditions and we would just end up in court again.
“Lay it on me Your Honour, and I’ll serve it out.”
Another of the futile four tried to recruit the judge;
Jim Golding, said he did not want to go to jail and invited Justice Thomas to “join the resistance, the side that’s fighting for human rights.
The group will be sentenced tomorrow. They face a maximum jail term of seven years or a maximum fine of $46,200 under the Defence (Special Undertakings) Act.
I doubt if any court in Australia will give them the maximum but one can always live in hope
