A puzzling AAP report, in which an unidentified “community” is mentioned:
Detectives were again called to Blaxcell Street, Granville, in western Sydney, after shots were fired at a house about 8.30pm yesterday.
They found a number of spent shell casings in the street, close to the scene of last Wednesday’s fatal shootings of boxer Bassam Chami, 26, and his friend Ibrahim Assad, 27.
State Crime Command chief Graeme Morgan today said six shots were fired at the house last night and another hit a telegraph pole …
Earlier today, Mr Morgan said tight-lipped residents were withholding crucial details about the double murder.
“They are the people that have the power to stop this, and obviously we appeal for them to come forward,’’ he said. “We can offer them absolute confidentiality.
“We can offer them protection if necessary, we’ll take the information anonymously, but they must see their responsibility and assist police.
“It depends on the community, quite frankly.
“If they are prepared to come forward, if they’re prepared to assist police we can stop it today.”
If only we knew more about this “community”. Possibly they’re as helpful as a certain community mentioned earlier:
Former Guantanamo Bay inmate Mamdouh Habib was questioned by police until around dawn after reportedly being stopped as he drove past the shooting scene of the double fatal shooting in Blaxcell Street, Granville, western Sydney, last night.
Police say a crowd of 200 people hampered their investigation after the shootings around 11.15pm.
