Police seek public assistance following assault

  1. Little cowards, they’ve been doing it for long, long time.
    Aboriginal youth is out of control and they will pick on the wrong person sometime!

  2. Re: Liberal – it’s going to happen one day.
    I love it how it is better not to offend than to find the criminals.
    Why not have a description of their appearance / skin colour. Oh, that’s right, because we don’t want to offend or cause any conceptions of a stereotyping even if they are based on facts.

  3. @ James T Smerk: Also James, I note it says “group” but does not specify or estimate how many. Then there is mention of two of the group.
    Perhaps we can all start carrying some protection. But then the police will argue excessive force. Whereas if they said a Group of 20, then it may be deemed reasonable force.
    Political correctness and protection of the statistics is a wonderful thing, whereas public safety is not.
    I’ll take my chances with carrying protection, I think.
