update 01/03/14

Larna Watmough, 21, and Layni Cameron, 17 — who can be named because Queensland laws treat 17-year-olds as an adult — faced Southport Magistrates Court this morning charged with serious assault and public nuisance.

They are accused of assaulting 77-year-old man Paul Buttigieg on a Surfside bus on Tuesday.

Layni Cameron , the brunette girl accused of attacking an elderly man on a bus has handed herself in at a Gold Coast police station and is being questioned over the alleged incident.

The 17-year-old, who was allegedly with a blonde 21-year-old on the bus, arrived at about 1.50pm and rushed past waiting media into the police station.

Earlier, Gold Coast police Acting Superintendent Brian Swan said police believed they had identified the women, and it was with the help of a slew of public tip-offs.

Police are expected to charge the two young women who bashed and racially vilified a partially blind indigenous man on a Gold Coast bus.

Gold Coast District Acting Superintendent Brian Swan said the victim had made a statement to police and wanted to press charges.

Supt Swan said police suspected the perpetrators were aged 17 and 21 but were yet to locate and interview them.

“We did receive a lot of calls from the public,” he told reporters.

“Quite quickly this morning we were able to identify who we believe were responsible.”

Supt Swan said the man suffered bruising to his arm.

“As you can imagine, he is quite upset and shaken by the incident,” he said.

He said the women could face serious assault charges, which carry a maximum sentence of seven years’ jail.

Gold Coast bus attack: two women leave elderly man ‘upset and shaken’

February 28, 2014 – 2:06PM

Gold Coast police are interviewing one of two young women captured on film abusing a passenger on a bus.

The woman walked into the Coolangatta station voluntarily early Friday afternoon.

Police are still searching for the second woman feature in the footage of the attack, which happened on Tuesday afternoon.

The women are seen verbally and physically abusing the 77-year-old man as the Sunbus service travelled through Kirra on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

District Acting Superintendent Brian Swan said the West Tweed Heads man came forward on Friday morning.

“He’s suffered some bruising on his arms, and as you can imagine he is quite upset and shaken by the incident,” he said.

The girls hurled racial abuse at the man, but Acting Superintendent Swan said he was not indigenous.

“The victim actually doesn’t identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander,” he said.

“However it is concerning that the alleged [attackers] perceived that he was.”

Acting Superintendent Swan also corrected earlier reports that the victim was vision-impaired, saying that his glasses had been knocked off during the scuffle, making it hard for him to see.

They also abused a female passenger who was standing with a pram.

“If anyone views that footage, you’d find it disturbing and I think quite abhorrent really, that sort of behaviour, particularly in a public place,” Acting Superintendent Swan said.

“I don’t think anyone would find that level of behaviour acceptable.”

Police are investigating if the women had been attending a social event in northern New South Wales earlier in the day, and whether alcohol was involved.

“It’s hard to say at this point in time because we haven’t spoken to the people involved, but obviously looking at the clip  they’re under the influence of some substance,” Acting Superintendent Swan said.

He said police did not receive any complaints about the incident until after Channel Nine screened the footage, filmed by a 13-year-old girl, on Thursday night. “We did receive a lot of calls from the public  … quite quickly this morning we were able to identify those we believe were responsible,” he said.

On Friday, the women’s names were circulating on social media.

They face charges of serious assault, which carries a maximum jail term of seven years.

Police Minister Jack Dempsey said the incident was an absolute disgrace.

“It’s deplorable to think that an individual can think they can use this type of violence against an elderly person on a public transport vehicle,’’ he said.

The incident ended when a male passenger told the women to stop, and forced them off the bus.

Acting Superintendent Swan said police had spoken with Sunbus about the bus driver.

“They are satisfied with the actions of the bus driver,” he said.

“From what I’ve been told, he’s acted appropriately in compliance with their policy … we have no criticism of his actions.”

It’s not the first time mobile phone footage of bad behaviour on buses has gone viral.

In June, NSW Police charged a 55-year-old woman after she was caught on camera racially vilifying an Asian schoolboy on a bus in Burwood in April.

Another video shows a pregnant woman being called a “fat slut” after she asked a Perth train passenger to move her bags so she could sit down.

In November 2012, a French woman on a Melbourne bus was told to “speak English or die” by a man who also threatened to cut her breasts off.

All three videos were posted on YouTube and triggered a backlash on social media.

A teenage girl who robbed a Surfers Paradise convenience store used the money to pay for a night in a luxury hotel

Layni Cameron, 17, got bail after holding up a convenience store in Surfers Paradise.

Layni Cameron, 17, got bail after holding up a convenience store in Surfers Paradise. 

A KNIFE-wielding teenage girl robbed a Surfers Paradise store just to fund a night in a luxury high rise hotel, a court has been told.

Layni Cameron, 17, stayed just one night at the Meriton Apartments in Broadbeach but soon found herself spending a less comfortable night in the Southport Watchhouse.

The Chinderah teenager faced the Southport Magistrates Court yesterday charged with armed robbery and stealing.

Police have alleged Cameron was seen on CCTV footage entering a Surfers Paradise convenience store around 7pm on Monday and pulling a long silver knife from a leopard-print handbag.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Myee Arandale said Cameron pointed the knife at the shop assistant and demanded cash while backing her into a corner.

Police are hunting two women who robbed a convenience store at Surfers Paradise on Monday evening.

She is alleged to have escaped with $400 cash with a female friend who played look out.

The girls then allegedly booked an apartment in Broadbeach and paid in cash.

Yesterday the court was told detectives soon tracked her down and Cameron confessed to robbing the store because “she had no money and didn’t want to spend the night on the street”.

Solicitor Ashleigh Nicholls said Cameron had been living between friends’ houses and working part-time as a telemarketer but could return to live with her parents at Chinderah if given bail.

Magistrate Kerry Magee agreed to bail but banned Cameron from Surfers Paradise and ordered her to return him and report to police three times a week.

She will return to court on April 2.

    • Hi Robbo. When I first saw these two supposed “human beings” on the news the other night attacking that poor, poor innocent elderly gentleman , I cannot describe the emotions that ran through my body. I think I went from disbelief to frustration (due to no one helping him) to panic for his well-being and then to massive anger/rage directed at the attackers. If I am honest, I did not believe these two people would be found and brought to justice so I was thrilled to hear that I was proved wrong. To me, this type of crime is up there with the worst of them. Our elderly citizens have all worked harder and lived much harder lives that what we have. They have had to live (and possibly fight) through wars, live during depressions where starvation was common, many at the man in questions age have lost their partners through death and in many cases are left to fend for themselves without anyone to talk to. What most elderly in our community want more than anything is to be able to live what’s left of their lives as best as they can in peace and without fear. What these two people did was to destroy any hope this man now has of leading a life where he is not freaked out by catching a bus or panicking whenever he hears a noise that is not familiar to him. Having these girls identity released to the public was the right thing to do. I am not a spiteful person but in this case, I hope their time in prison is not a happy one and they receive the same level of disrespect they showed to the man. My only other hope is that they don’t end up being represented by some big shot defense team and wiggle their way out of this. They deserve to be locked up for a long enough period that will ensure that when they are released, the hell they have lived through will make them stop and think about abusing anyone else again in the future. How proud must these two girls parents be of them right now? My guess is Not Proud at All.

  6. Deplorable, absolutely deplorable- these girls make me embarrassed to be female. Watching this poor man trying to defend himself in the video, and the fact that he was crying even as he got off the bus, made me want to start crying myself. If I had the money I would pay his taxi fares so he never has to set foot on another bus again. What is further disgusting and adds to the distaste of this situation is the fact that one of the women’s “parents” -and I use that term loosely- has come out (without revealing his identity- so a coward like his slag daughter) and said that the victim was rude! So effing what if he was rude, does that give his daughter the right to place her hands on someone else? To spit and kick and punch someone as they cower in fear and embarrassment? You could tell by women’s body language and demeanour in that short video that they were out looking for trouble. Apparently, this woman’s father was upset because his precious little 21 year old darling was in handcuffs and he felt it was unnecessary. Well I say to him: you had 21 years to get it right and had you done your job properly as a parent she would not be standing there in handcuffs in the first place. And yes it was necessary- your “child” is a 21 year old adult, who has shown a complete and utter lack of regard for the law, has committed a serious crime and has shown she has a tendency to be violent- shame they couldn’t put a muzzle on them both I say. They say the sins of the parents are the shackles of their children….. teach your kids to respect others and maybe they might have some respect for themselves.

        I respect your optimistic outlook, and suggestion that these two, somehow, in a perfect world, can be made to care for their victim. However, I believe these two are beyond any form of rehabilitation and are only capable of caring for themselves, at the expense of others. Their knifepoint armed robbery the week before, only reinforcing my point of view. They really are brain-dead little nobodies, but sadly endemic of a confused society where the lines between morality, discipline and entitlement are fuzzy at best.
        Personally I think they should be diced into millimetre cubes and liquified into corn fertilizer, as this is all they have proven their biomass to be worth. There is no intelligence here, no morality and no common decency. They are dangerous and worthless and as such should be removed.

What I said was ‘unfortunately it’s becoming the standard I expect of young people these days’ If your going to call, or out someone on a statement they’ve made have the decency not to embellish or incorrectly quote that person.

      The statement made is my opinion. However in 2013 a federal report into the increase in violence amongst juveniles and young people clearly indicates a national average increase in the order of 30+% in the last decade. In some states like Victoria its much higher.

      “the report acknowledges that though youths (11 to 18) represented only 21 per cent of Victoria’s population, they accounted for 46 per cent of all offenders”

      I wasnt saying “all” young people behave in this manner. Fact is, regardless of anybodys opinion, violence amongst our younger generation on the increase each year. The social factors behind this rise is and even bigger debate.

      Tragic no matter which way you look at it.

    I have had to sit back for the last 48 hours and wait for the real facts to be released before commenting back. I have watched as cyber bullying has been taken to a whole new level towards my sister and my family after the loss of the late Charlotte Dawson committing suicide over cyber bullying and everyone declaring we should lock up cyber bullies. All these people are commenting on an edited, cropped video and numerous false accusation on top of fictional journalism. I have read from different newspapers and reports from both TV and radio a complete bunch of lies.

    The attack was unprovoked – lies
    Larna came from the races – lies
    The man was indigenous – lies
    He was assumed indigenous because of his color and appearance, it was corrected imediately
    The man was completely blind – lies
    He is clinically blind, not completely. He is completely in his right eye, 1/4 vision in his left. Nit picking!!
    Larna abused mother with the pram – lies
    Tru the woman with the pram wasn’t abused, but the other passangers seated in the left front of the bus were, prior to the old gent.
    Larna hit the man first – lies
    He didn’t hit her…it might have been layni who hit him first and then Lana followed.
    The girls are sisters – lies
    It was never said in the media they were sisters, they were identified by police as soon as they viewed the tape.
    Larna was involved in an arm robbery – lies
    That wasn’t claimed it was made clear it was Layni that was on parole.
    Larna has any sort of criminal record – lies
    Again see above.
    The attack was racially influenced – lies
    The media didn’t say that was the cause but did at first report an older indigenous was attacked.

    My sister was set on bail after only a couple of minutes yesterday after police have now seen the footage from the bus.
    Interesting that after seeing the bus video they still pressed charges. Yes they didn’t oppose bail, rarely do in first offenses and when no serious damage done (not hospitalized)
    You want to talk about ethical, the young girl being named ‘brave’ for filming has done nothing but created a circus. The girl’s family didn’t take this to police to be investigated, instead taking it straight to channel 9 for a quick buck as channel 9 paid for the video before police were even informed about the incident.
    Not sure about this one.

    Larna isn’t a racial person, completely far from it; Larna’s closet friends are all indigenous with one of her indigenous friends spending last Christmas with our family. Larna never said a racial thing with the other girl saying ‘we are in abo land’ People saying things about my Mum have no idea what your talking about she has a number of occasions taken in struggling kids off the street and provided food and shelter till they found there feet from all different cultures with no incentive just out of kindness. Anyone that knows my mother will say she is a hard working, generous, selfless person to anyone she meets. In fact not a single person in my family has a criminal record and the crap I have read is so ridiculous people must have no lives themselves.

    This man ‘labeled by the media as innocent’ is known to police and local residence all around the area for being extremely abusive, degrading to women by spitting at them, completely sexist and known to be harassing people on a weekly basis. He has spat at mothers with children’s and abused women in shopping centers. For any women that has been degraded by sexist men, unfair employment opportunities and even just abused my men know that anyone still in this frame of mind is disgusting.
    I find this a very interesting statement. I would be very keen to know how he has knowledge of all this. “Well know to police” know by all locals etc etc.
    If what he claims happened, the bus CCTV would have shown it and the charges would have been dropped, or at least the old guy would also have charges pending.
    This incident happened on a Tuesday but took him till Friday to report after him seeing all the media hype created and fueled by the media.
    I have been told he locked himself inside for 2 days nursing his bruzes and was only convinced to go and press charges when his mates from the bowls club showed him the video and reassured him the police would press charges.

    The facts will come soon enough with him swearing at the girls for listening to there I pad signing ‘my nigga my nigga’ by YG. He then called them names such as sluts, whores and told them to go back where they came from to eventually spitting on the girls. The video doesn’t show Larna try to pull the other girl off and stop it at the start, while Lana tried to help she dropped her phone on the ground tried to pick it up and the man kicked her in the face which she has an injuries to her head from which then she reacted to.
    Interesting, that an old man, mostly blind, would kick a girl massively bigger than himself, in the head, but the girls hat stayed on, no blood, no holding onto her face etc. I am not on here to defend the actions after that as they are completely unacceptable and Larna is completely remorseful now. My first sight of the video I was also disgusted and embarrassed, but after learning the video has been edited to make only the girls look like terrible villains I now see what the media has done to create a massive story.

    I know my sister and she would have never just started bashing a man for no reason and anyone that knows her has already said that, she has a good heart and is becoming a huge victim with TRUE FACTS not being told. The police cannot comment on social media but have been supportive of Larna through this period after watching the whole bus camera footage. We have a legal system with FACTS for a reason let it take its course.

    I want to thank all my friends that have been supportive and never jumped on the bandwagon with the circus before knowing both sides.
    One thing I would love to be able to do is, access both his and his sisters tweets, emails, social media and just see how many times they have “Bullied” others. A bit different when the shoes on the other foot.

    I really doubt 9 would have doctored the video as they could leave them self open to a liable charge.
    Also, as far as I know they never pay for local news items, they didn’t pay for the video of the bikie fight in Broadbeach that has caused the anti bikie laws, so I doubt they would have paid for this little bit of local news.

    If the old guy is such an anti woman, screams obscenities and spits at them, he certainly wouldn’t survive as a member of the Tweed Heads Bowls Club, where he is well liked, even to the point his friends pick him up and drop him home because of his eyesight.

    I think this guy is clutching at straws and hoping his comments can get sympathy for his sister.

    • All I can say is their actions are far from representative of the responsible grounded people they’re family is so desperately trying to make them out to be. Their past CRIMINAL record is a greater indication of the type of individuals they are. Noteworthy here too is that not a single witness on the bus has confirmed the above version of events in relation to Paul being the aggressor.

    • robbo there is nothing wrong with providing an opportunity for the public to comment on crimes pending hearings, which we cant do on the news sites, despite feeling very upset etc, such as with this crime,as a community.
      the efforts of the families of these two disgusting young women will be challenged at their hearings, and add to evidence of the lack of remorse shown,in consideration for sentencing.
      social media content has been used in evidence,
      the demented ramblings of the sibling of the twisted sister just demonstrate further their altered view of the truth.they want the old man to be seen as having perverse behaviours -funny he doesnt get a mention for that in subsequent media, these ramblings should be the basis of a defamation claim.and as for comparing charlotte dawsons demise thru cyberbullying-pfffft!!!charlotte was a victim, these two slags got out and were punching on having a good time but got caught-they are the bullies!!!!
      obviously the family x2 collectively pooled brain cells and wrote this rubbish about their view of what we saw, and dont forget , we all saw it, thanks to social media.

  30. Hello folks… I have a few things to add. These girls, heavily intoxicated and probably high on drugs, boarded the bus and proceeded to sit on the back seat. They were singing some rap song quite loudly, which included profanities. The actual song was “My Nigga” by rap artist YG, which is quite offensive to most normal people. A mother with a baby in a pram asked them (politely) to quieten down and she received a earful of abuse and phsyical intimidation from these two bogans. There were other younger girls on the bus; they were all scared. Fortunately that young girl (Rebecca) filmed the incident on her phone. She deserves credit for her quick thinking. This is where 77 year old, clinically blind pensioner, Paul Buttigieg, a former jockeym enters the story. He said to the girls that they should go home. Then, as we have all seen to our disgust, they turned their venemous, immature rage on this poor old man. The older black haired bogan was clearly smiling and smirking as she took part in the assault. She is the one on bail for armed robbery. She wasn’t smirking when she was detained. Mr Buttigieg is blind in one eye and has very limited vision in his other eye – clinically blind. He didn’t know how many people were assaulting him. Amazingly, he stood up and defended himself. What a tough old codger. Now some people have criticized the perceived inaction of people on the bus. Lets start with the bus driver. They get paid poorly and treated snobishly in Australian society and are often the victims of assaults themselves. He pulled the bus over and followed protocol. I think it’s unfair to blame him or anyone else on the bus for that matter. Eventually a man did intervene – good on him. These days in Australia, you intervene in a fight and suddenly you are the victim or in trouble with the law. We need to examine how Australia has got to this point rather than lampoon the perceived inaction of individuals. Also the Gold Coast is one of the roughest places in Australia, in terms of alcohol fuelled violence.. a disease that plagues Australia at the moment. I would be very reluctant to become involved in an altercation on the coast – you are literally dicing with your life. We need more cameras on trains/buses etc. We also need to examine why (some) young people have no respect for elders. The fact that they launched into rascist abuse (when the man isn’t Aboriginal), is just as disturbing…

    I suspect part of the problem lies in their family. Today her brother has publicly defended these two bogans and blamed the victim and the girl who recorded the attack. According to Mitchell Watmough, Mr Buttigieg “called the girls “sluts and whores”, spat on them and kicked his sister in the face”. On his facebook page he has posted a confused rant which compares these two violent bogans to Charlotte Dawson. He has also posted some images of messages from people alleging they have been abused/harrassed by Mr Buttigieg. He also alleges Mr Buttigieg is “not blind”, when in fact he is clinically blind. These images of ‘messages’ he has posted contain no actual link, and judging from the names of the ‘people’ that allegedly posted/sent them, they are bogans who are friends of this family and they are embarking on a cyber push-back. It’s no wonder that drone Anthony Watmough is her cousin; the apples don’t fall far from the tree in this family. Her brother Mitchell Watmough looks like some steroid munching gym-head with a brain the size of a pea. Go and check his facebook page. He is engaging in character assassination based on nothing. He also denies they hurled racial abuse, when it is painfully clear to blind freddy they did. In short, the family are blaming everyone but the girls and themselves… in their warped version of events, this 77 year old man is going out and abusing everyone on the streets and is some serial pest (unlike these two little angels, who don’t do drugs, who don’t rob stores, who don’t engage in prostitution).

  31. Here is what MITCHELL WATMOUGH – brother of one bus bogans – had to say in his unhinged rant..

    “Pretty fucked how the media blows everything out of proportion and no one questions it and just jumps on the bandwagon and believes every single thing the media says.
    ‘Gold coast teenagers abuse blind aboriginal’.
    Not from the Gold Coast. Only one of them is a teenager. Not blind. Not aboriginal.
    After Charlotte Dawson killed herself, so many people wrote huge posts about how sad cyber bullying is and how it needs to stop and it was the same people telling these girls to go kill themselves and making death threats. Beyond hypocritical. Anyone who has said ‘they should kill themselves’ or anything like that, should be ashamed. Nameless, faceless bully’s over the Internet are MUCH worse. The only people who deserve the abuse they have gotten are rapists, child abusers and animal abusers.
    So if you’re someone who sees something posted by ninemsn or another news outlet and instantly shares it and says ‘how disgusting’ it is, you are an idiot. The media pulls ‘facts’ out of a hat and chucks it in the headline to get the public interested. Wait for the facts, otherwise you will look like a fuckhead.
    To be honest, I didn’t even read the story when I first saw it. Didn’t like it, didn’t comment on it. Because I know how fucked and twisted the media is and I knew opening it up and reading it would be a waste of time and all I would be reading is bullshit.”

    Here is MITCHELL WATMOUGH’s FaceBook page:
    https://www.facebook.com/mitchell.watmough.3?fref=ts&ref=br_tf

    Brother Aaron Watmough, who looks the biggest bogan of them all, is also posting ridiculous crap.

    Here is the text of a message which he has photographed and posted – but with no link to the actual message. It was ‘Yesterday’ at 10:07AM from someone called “Alana Jane”. (no one by that name is on his or his brothers friends list)

    “Yep this old man also abused my autistic son when he was 9 and when I asked him why he abused my son he then abused me. He is horrible and has been for years and years that I know of. On another ocaison he abused my friend while she was at the bus with her children. On another occaison he abused my 80 year old neighbour and her brother in 70’s while walking a dog. He is just as horrible as the girls are. He did not deserve to hit, kicked or spat on but if you go around abusing people allllllllllllllll the time eventually you will come across someone that retaliates and gives it back 3fold.”

    This is from the facebook page of MITCHELL WATMOUGH (and his deadsh#t brother Aaron). They make out this clinically blind 77 year old man to be some sociopath who habitually abuses people and disabled children… but hang on, by their bogan-logic he is “just as horrible as the girls are”… What are they saying? The girls are horrible ? Their bogan logic is flawed…

    Notice the bogan grammar (“at the bus” ) and the bogan spelling (“occaison”). A complete lack of punctuation confirms the bogan-nature of this message; the second sentence sounds juvenile. I suspect this message from “Alana Jane” is actually a bogan message from a certain bogan family or one of their bogan friends. It’s clearly a family of white-trash bogans.

    I’d like to personally see both families pack up, piss off somewhere else and not come back. We have enough crime on the coast because of trash families like these two and their disgusting, destructive and violently hideous offspring.

    WHY BAD KIDS ARE PARENTS’ FAULT
    Good parenting can put a stop to violence such as the alleged Coast bus attack
    AMANDA SHEEHAN THE COURIER-MAIL MARCH 05, 2014

    “when I read that the father of one of the accused expressed anger that his daughter was handcuffed, and urged people to remember that there are “two sides to the story”, I was gravely disappointed. What I wanted to hear was regret, remorse and shame. What I heard was anything but”

    “In an ideal world, the parents of both accused bus attack perpetrators would welcome just punishment and hang their heads in shame. I am grateful society has expressed complete outrage at such an event. I am also thankful for parents who do their utmost to produce responsible citizens. Those kinds of parents will probably end up saving the world”.

  34. Like to lock these fat moles in with Adrian Bayley and Steven Hunter where they could sort out their cowardly pathetic mole like tempers. They could use and give Mole Bayley a bashing, and or vise versa , Bayley the killer rapist mole could give them a feeling of powerlessness by doing what he used to do best to his victims- Like wise Standover man Steven Hunter, who knows only excessive violence in and out of jail. Could share these brat girls with Bayley on their solitary confinement . And Adrian Bayley when he was in the free world for years as a unstoppable sick aggressive rapist. Need I elaborate what a good threesome it would be!….Also when Bayley is finished with them, or their finished with him!,,……… these fat moles could be locked away in with the tough Kooris prison population to let out the jail frustrations on these ”daddies little girls”, and play with these bitchy dolls and leave them clear lying in the prison gutter with all the shit kicked out of them!…………….These wanna be tough arse mole bitches deserves a taste of their own torment!…….Wearing handcuffs should be the least of their worries!…………..KARMA for the fat mole bitches!…………..Rehabilitation, ha,ha!.

  35. Before anyone attacks me on being a hard arse former screw!. on the way I would like these kretins getting poetic justice and harshly punished. Please take into account that …… The facts are on todays streets all over Australia, that the cowardly mentality of attacks in groups or large numbers of thugs and often very drug and alcohol affected bully young men and woman in groups – are for no reason other than for looking for a soft target or a bit of fun after a party or night out. Are verbally and physically in a violent manner attacking, bashing and sometimes even inflicting serious life changing head injuries to their powerless victims, and tragically, these victims are left in a comatose condition sometimes later dying from the assaults inflicted on them by these cowards in groups, and which will more often than not leave the victims scars of life long mental health and disability issues and a loss of their former life, before the assault on them!…………The victims who are left with head injuries, have in effect been murdered by these low life cowards, who think it is fun to gang up on and attack their victims!……………………These pieces of trash need to know that what goes around, will come around back at them!… hence KARMA…….. And that the too could very well be the victim of a coward attack on them, and outnumbered by some group of violent cowards who are bigger bullies, and badder and stronger, and more violent in the pack of animals than them. Dog eat Dog world!…. Such as is the case in the Prisons!……..Survival of the fittest!…..Queensbury Rules!……………
    These scumbags that go out at night, looking for a fight, or looking for someone to bash or abuse!
    Then if caught, they deserve the worst possible punishment and retaliations meet towards them for there cowardice actions!…….END OF STORY!………………………………………………………………

  36. That’s not what I was trying to say. I was not attacking the gender, be they male or female, both sexes can commit violent crimes, as I well know. Females in and out of prison are just as evil and violent, nasty an vile mouthed as men. I am not saying violence towards women is acceptable, because it definitely is not. As the current and recent campaine against violence against women show. That’s not what I am speaking about. But by the same token, their are many violent evil women, that have with intent assaulted and even killed male victims and female victims. Like Tanya Herman, The body in the boot murderess – for example!… And these two young bitches in the above acts of violence are the such females that im talking about. These same tough tarts would be the first to cry victim, if a male offender attacked them!.. But they don’t mind dishing out their ugly insults and violence on a defenceless elderly disabled and homeless man in public in front of public on-lookers.. And that is what I was commenting on here.. And that is these tough coward bitches above in this attack on a harmless indigent blind man – merely need a taste of their own medicine for the way they ganged up on this minding his own business, easy prey elderly guy. But they will just get a slap on the wrist, as usual by the courts….. in this bleeding heart modern day injustice legal system…. Then back out on the streets to further build up their criminal rap sheets , and chips on their shoulders on the next new victims again!……… There should be no violence against women or men !!!…………. But sadly in this modern day world angry drug affected or intoxicated bored young people of both sexes,” male and female ”and in company of a group- are out looking for trouble and a easy target to pick on- male or female to attack for their entertainment and notoriety reguardless of the consequences to their injured victims !!!. For every dangerous horrible crime that is perhaps more so in number committed by violent men. …. Lets not forget that their are indeed also violent women who cold bloodedly look for an opportunity to attack both other women, men and children victims……. I saying punishment should fit the crimes of violence these males or females commit… But im just old school- An eye for an eye!…….But I know what its like on the other side of the fence. And that’s Gaol, Im talking about. And these upstart young tarts, need a taste of its violent reality, to bring them down a peg or two.. And know what its like to be under the boot of an aggressor behind bars!……… But wanna be crims, male and female, don’t do real jail anymore do they!…… That’s why theres no respect out on the streets anymore. And thugs go out of their way to harm others in public!……………………..

  37. Usually Former Officer,I do agree with your posts – perhaps I did just see those particular words and went for it (yeah, I will admit when I may be wrong lol) I agree with both sexes – yes – and that there are many ferals out there committing these crimes on innocent people – Like you – I have seen this both in my past career and personal life. You know, as well as others that there is a ‘form of justice’ inside that will also deal with these scumbags – just when they get out – they can just go ahead and continue where they left off! Yeah, a lot of these issues are due to mental health issues not being ‘attended to’, lack of education, and these scum relying on their ‘only way of survival’ mode. There is no way I am defending the actions of these criminals – but these kinds of people will not change and usually the cycle just repeats itself when the families’ breed – without growing up and copping it – instilling responsibility, manners, morals, getting their mental health checked and medicated, working their butts off and earning instead of taking away.

    I have probably rambled a bit here, but hope I made some kind of sense lol :) thanks for your input on these pages Former Officer – that is why people like us are ‘former’….it takes a lot out of us and usually falling on ‘deaf ears’ anyway!

  38. Cheers Chris, yeah mate well written, I guess in the current climate of the growing violence against women and innocent children, my gesture of wanting these breed of nasty ferals , to experience powerlessness at the hands of dangerous criminals in jail worst than them, was not the right thing to say on a public post. And I will rephrase and retract my statement. It just that when I was told by a Sophie on many outspoken a blogs I wrote on the Aussie Criminals – Body in the boot page…… That I must be a criminal and are very bitter and twisted on my comments, that I wrote warts and all, bagging about The Body in the Boot Murderess – Tania Herman and her Country club Jail Lover…. And this Sophie made me furious. As I still think Maria Corps killer was a evil bitch who should of got a life sentence for the cold blooded way she strangled and left for dead her victim!…………. And after watch the public footage and seeing these two little Darlings ”Larna and Larni” – Attack this defenceless elderly blind guy, and the insults to the lady with the child in the pusher – and that they both had prior committed an armed robbery on a soft target – ”Just made my blood boil.” …. Because some of these long criminal record and re-offending rap sheet – recidivist offender female prisoners – are just as frightening as the male crims were and are as heartless and violent as the Male prisoners. And there plea bargaining Lawyers and the bleeding heart Prison Welfare workers and soft Prison Officers were and still are, often manipulated with their bleeding heart sob stories during their prison counselling sessions and the rehabilitation preparation processes and this helped these female and male prisoners like Adrian Bayley – Peter Dupas – Steven Hunter and also even Tania Herman with the support and help of the do-gooder justice department . And guaranteed they would get granted early parole. Even though these grubs have over and over again conned the justice system and parole boards, they would and did numerous times – re-offend in the most hideous of ways . And that evil bitch ex Prisoner : Tanya Hermann – I think got it too easy in the H.M.Tarrengower do- gooders country club resort jail with a very lenient sentence of only 9 years. For Murder most fowl!.. And her Lover got off easy also!………. Any way thanks to who ever this Sophie is,- I don’t give a shit at all about being derogative toward criminals. And – Yeah I am and have become bitter and twisted. That is Bitter at the soft limp wristed – twisted, slap on the wrist sentences handed out by the Magistrates and Judges, – that is becoming all to common place, all the while the victims of crime receive the harsh sentence by the perpetrators. Just like that piece of scum- violent male offender that broke that innocent young ladies jaw in a nightclub !….. And what does the Magistrate hand out as punishment to this piece of shit!……No Conviction….. No Jail Time……. And get on with your life!……………… While the victim jaw has been broken, and has to move on with her life!……….
    So the Do-Gooder Justice System doesn’t care about the welfare and human dignity of the Victims! Same old story – nothing ever changes – And INNOCENT people just out trying to have a good time – get bashed by these shit for brains low life bullies, who only know one way to react and that is bash helpless people………………….. But the Magistrates and Judges are not listening to the victims or the public concerns in their ivory towers- and continue to keep passing limp slap on the wrist sentences to these violent offenders!………And H.M.Barwon Prison King Pin Tony Mokbal is or was In mainstream jail , fighting and breaking a fellow prisoners nose. Ha Ha. And now is being sent back to Acasia Maximum Security unit to separate him from more trouble, H, Ha – At least the Mainstream Hard core Heavy Crims maintain a just code of crime and punishment, and meet out poetic justice – when their own kind break the code of Jail Corrective services. Ha Ha………..
    One thing that can be certain – There is always going to be plenty of horrible crimes – to comment on at Aussie Criminal. I Think that is part of the problem- There not enough long term jails and the JAILS and Police Cells are dangerously overcrowded and bursting at the seams, and the useless Department of in-Justice, has got no available vacancies in the boob, for all the scum bags, so they just let them back out on the streets , and hand out a fine or suspended sentence and or a community based order or whack a home detention bracelet on them, and try to keep a lid on the growing daily prisons population………”.The Cycle of Crime!.”…………………………………….
    Cheers Aussie Criminal Community……………….
