What bomb (part 2)?

You may remember some time in the dim, dark past a gas bottle-filled van was deliberately exploded outside the Australian Christian Lobby HQ in Canberra.

Even as the shattering echoed out over the lawn of Parliament House, silence descended.

The ACT Police were quick to inform us that it was not a terrorist event, despite conceding that they had not investigated the threats made against the Australian Christian Lobby. Sherlock Holmes would be impressed.

Last week I wrote to the ACT Police asking a number of questions:

  1. What is the name of the person involved in this incident?
  2. What is his condition and has he been released from hospital?
  3. Have any charges been laid in relation to this incident and what are they?
  4. Was a crime-scene declared at the scene of the incident?
  5. What details can ACT police release in relation to any motivation for the incident?
  6. Can ACT police release any other information about this incident?

I have received a response. It was that no response will be given.



Or, in other words, the ACT Police think that they can do this:

So, well over a month since the ‘incident in Deakin’, we still don’t even know if the ACT Police are even treating this as a possible crime.

No wonder public confidence in government departments is at an all time low…

  1. Keeping the public in the dark on this matter in other words, lying to us, a sin of omission,is now often done by public authorities.
    In Melbourne where the car ran down many unfortunates in Bourke st., Michael showed us one witness on video saying the driver shouting ‘allah aqubar’ and in social media the driver said he was a Greek islamist.
    But the Victorian police stated it wasn’t a ‘terrorist’ act except I don’t know what could be more terrifying than being deliberately run down by a car. Is Michael Smith in error? or are both the premier of Victoria and the Victorian police commissioner lying to us.
    The country has come to a sorry state when the veracity of these 2 public officials can be questioned.
    Politicians must realize that the end doesn’t justify the means, the means shape the end.
    As your children don’t do as you say, but do as you do, so you don’t teach by precept but by example. If public figures are going to lie then the public will follow their example and lie too.
    What sort of a society is that?
