Just finished "A Murder without Motive" by Martin McKenzie-Murray about the murder of a 19y.o girl in Perth's northern suburbs.

Well written and explores a range of themes including the banality of the 'burbs and the adolescent struggle to develop masculine identity.

Highly recommended.

Bump.

Have read 2 books on Daniel Morcombe's abduction and murder (Police investigation POV and the parent's POV).

Book entitled "I Shot Daddy" which was the story of a girl's horrific sexual abuse (10 year period) accumulating to the eventual murder of her father, by her, due to the fact he basically raped her younger sister in front of her. Sentenced to life in prison with no parole- was a brutal yet amazing story.

And now just picked up a book for $8: "Little Girls Lost: The Stories of Four of Australia's Most Horrific Child Murders"- currently reading the story of the Bega Schoolgirls murders.


/sometimes I wonder why I read this stuff.

Saw a great film last night 'Joe Cinque consolation' based on a book of Helen Garner. Very disturbing case of a young law student who murdered her boyfriend by drugging him and then injecting him with massive doses of heroin.
She received just 4 years gaol and was out within 2 years!!

Anyone else just watch "Deep Water" on SBS?
Yes. Posted a thread on Tv and Entertainment. Just shake your head that the police were either complicit in some of the attacks or complicit in not investigating very hard.

And to put my hand up I did have those sentiments as a teenager. Left those behind a while ago.


Now watching Bra Boys.

Yeah I cannot relate to that at all- easy for me to say I know was too young in that era to know what was really happening (as I was born in 1980) and by the time I was 15/16 I guess it was more acceptable and we knew more about HIV/AIDS then.

As a woman just made me extremely uncomfortable seeing girls involved in those gangs and just saying the most horrific things, just horrible.

One q.

If homosexuals were obviously being targeted- why didnt they group together and fight the fighters?? Give those bastards a taste of their own medicine. Just wondering.

I think the letter that was read out was close to the mark. I didn't understand it at that age, there was truly truly horrendous things said against gays. HIV/AIDS was scaring a lot of people. In Adelaide we had young men disappearing at the time. There was this great divide, similar towards Muslims today. And the fear was perpetuated nightly on tv.

The psychology of homosexuality at the times was one of shame. By ''grouping together'' they then exposed themselves to others , when for many men it was still a dirty private secret to themselves.

Again- was unaware. Just assumed these types of crimes/murders happened more in the 50s/60s/70s and by the time the 80s, even early 90s came around people were way more educated and accepted. Obviously I was wrong. Was staggered by the "response" (cant even call it that can you) of the police. Disgraceful.

Look up the Duncan Murder on the Torrens ( Bevan Von Einem makes an appearance) as to Police Complicitness.

Cuckoo by Andrew Rule on Raymond Edmonds or Mr. Stinky is the best I've read, published in 1988 it's out of print now and copies are getting harder to find but well worth it if you can pick one up somewhere.

What a sick **** that campaigner was.

Too bad Crime Investigation Australia didn't do a doccy on him, that degenerate was all over the shop and only convicted of two or three break in rapes and two murders. Also a paedophile, suspected of much more.

Seven to commission two new series in 2017, including Million Dollar Cold Case, where viewers will be offered a reward of up to $1m for fresh evidence leading to an arrest or conviction.

Murder Uncovered, to be hosted by new recruit Michael Usher, will also re-examine some of Australia’s most notorious killings and crimes.

Hopefully they cover the NCA bombing, although SAPOL might not want to get involved as they have new DNA evidence being tested ... great for the perpetrator/s to finally get what they deserve for this horrible crime.
