A statement from the Illustrious OneDecember 18, 2009
Speaking for the first time since Mr. Cann and Mr. Minors were murdered, Premier Ewart Brown issued a two-line statement.
It said: “For every life lost to violence in our community, we suffer the pain as a Country.
“I extend condolences on behalf of the Government to the family and friends of the latest victim.”
Thanks for that vote of confidence that Government is working to towards a solution to the issue!
On a side note, I find it very interesting that Shane Minors was shot at 1:15am, but police weren’t notified until 6:15am. Yet, he apparently had no gang ties other than his brother’s possible participation in a gang. I have a sneaky suspicion that someone from that gang was notified to try to garner retribution for his death. Only after no such luck were the police notified.
