A statement from the Illustrious One

December 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.
