Two bandits, one of them armed, last night attempted to rob a Sydney pub. One fled when confronted by security. The other was dealt with by locals:

Once the locals had finished subduing the youth, nobody needed to guard him until the police arrived.

    1. The gunman is described by police as being slim, about 175 centimetres tall, with olive skin, and wearing a white hooded top, which obscured his face, blue jeans and white sneakers.

      Green or black?

    1. Its a good news story until we hear that police have just charged the locals for assault.

    1. #10 WTF!

    1. I wonder if the locals dropped their beers, or used one hand to restrain the crim and the other to continue what they were doing.

      There were 443 armed robberies across Sydney last year compared to 734 in 2003 according to .this article. I wonder how many were with illegal firearms, yet used to justify tougher gun laws to be equally disobeyed.

      I can’t find any report online in the Telegraph. Anyone got a hard copy with additional information?

    1. I think an incident like this should be called an example of “Flight 93 Syndrome”.

    1. rindarman: I prefer the phrase “93rd Volunter Infantry”

    1. Ha ha! Reminds me of the ‘porn king’ who got robbed awhile back, and went after the little thieves. He beat the crap out of them- using bolt cutters on one, then dumped them at a police station and left his details.

      More stories like this and robbers will start to learn…

      #2- El Cid- I’m going to vote Imbeciles.

    1. Not so lucky as the thug who smashed up two cars (girl drivers in them) and managed to break his ankle when it got caught under the second..
      The girl told the cops who said they couldn’t identify him (night crime) and she was told to change her licence plates for safety etc.All up she forked out one thousand smackas and was terrified into the bargain -now too afraid to go out at night in the car.
      Recently she was contacted by a private investigator who informed her that the culprit was claiming third party insurance against her(had the licence number) and that if she wanted to dob him in again to the cops,knowing his identity she would have to pay for the privilege.Incidentally he was being defended by the Aboriginal Legal Service…
      O/T Why did Austraya bail out East Timor with U.N. permission? To stop Indonesian soldiers and “militia” from attacking them.
      What did I hear on the news yesterday?
      The East Timorese Police are torturing lawbreakers -East Timorese lawbreakers.
      What lesson should we take from that…
      don’t bail out West Papua.Get it Uniting Church Greenies,Dems,Fems and all round do-gooders.

    1. #17, I wasn’t there, I swear.  Wish I had been, though.

    1. Depends on how much credibility you give Human Rights Watch, I guess.

      But to me, the benefit of protecting East Timor isn’t just in protecting East Timor. It’s also in letting Indonesia know that it can’t get away with everything.

      That they’re complaining about what they call “economic refugees” from coming to Australia tells me they haven’t quite learned their lesson yet. Unless they’re terrorists or criminals, it’s none of Indonesia’s business who we allow in.
