    These pricks deserve s ripe old beating. At the very least, if they’re club or MCC members, they should have their memberships torn up and be given life bans. The justice system will inevitably disappoint.

    Pretty sure the MCC confirmed they have suspended their memberships pending the court case outcome.
    Will be interesting to see what they do once they are convicted.

    New charges of conduct endangering life.

    Looks like the stakes have been raised since the initial charges.

    Can any legal types out there give a run down of penalties for these charges. ( assuming they are found guilty).

    Xavier is on the nose and the media is all over it. You only have to spend half an hour on the 109 tram to Box Hill from 3.30pm (as I unfortunately have to do from time to time) to see where it comes from. There are kids with all colour of school tie on that tram but it's the black and red that stands out for pure oafishness. 15 year olds dropping the f-bomb seemingly oblivious to anyone around them is typical.

    I’m glad the age is in no way suggesting walkers father had anything to do with the court changes

    I also am definitely not suggesting that walkers father had anything to do with it

    That was the school where year 12 students were taunting other students from lower socioeconomic schools on a VCE Facebook page designed to help with exams, yeah?

    Something about 'povvo schools' and 'being your boss one day'

    But I would imagine it’s not that far off the truth. It always seems like the toff schools that capture the news leads during leavers for their antics

    Unsurprisingly they have a reasonable history of being pretty shit, generally speaking.

    If you can use the defence that someone over served you so you viciously bashed some old blokes then you can go out and rape women in the same scenario.

    Two guys wanting to punch on outside a pub is one thing but once the blokes on the deck you **** off. Blokes used to pull their mates off at that point. Now looks like they just jump in.

    Exactly.
    If being drunk is used as an excuse, what happens when one is charged with drink driving?


    “Any excuse for driving drunk sir?”

    “Yes your worship, I was drunk”

    It’s like how being on drugs is used as an excuse to reduce a sentence.....it’s
    A) no excuse
    B) should, if anything, simply add to the charges as you’ve admitted to using illegal drugs!

    Which is pretty funny, considering academically Xavier is pretty shit in terms of high school VCE rankings for it's repuatation.

    One of the poorer ATAR/$ schools in the top 200.

    There isn't a single true public school in the top 30 VCE perfomers from 2018. The 28/30 were private, including #1.

    The 2 "public schools" are MacRobertsons Girls and Melbourne High which are both selective and ranked at #2 & #5.


    My point is, Xavier ranked at #73 in 2018, below quite a few public schools. St Kevins as a direct rival, ranks a shitload better academically.

    #1 had an average ATAR above 94 and a 100% pass rate, so I imagine if you asked their parents, they'd probably say it's worth it.

    I don’t know why they’re copping it. They’re grown men, it doesn’t matter which school they went to when they were kids.

    Not hard to achieve when you boot any student without a brain out in year 10, and “manage” the rest through their exams with every bit of help in the world.

    I did think the same thing tbh - maybe it’s just a filler which would be terrible and I didn’t look at the author of the story - maybe a rival school.

    There would be no doubting that Xavier lawyers would have been in contact telling them to stop

    I dunno, maybe it’s the whole private school culture, which doesn’t make sense to me. These people seem to drag their school identity around for life.

    I mean, they still play school footy in their 20s and 30s... get over it lads.

    The high end public schools also use the trick of “moving on” the lumps at the end of year 10, though I’m sure the tactics are a lot more prevalent in the elite private schools.

    In saying that, if your kid is academically inept, there’s more incentive to move them out of those schools before year 12 if they have no aspirations or need to get a decent ATAR, so the parents can save on forking out the massive $$$ in fees.

    You are more likely to do time for that assault than these ******* campaigners.

    There are no consequences when you're rich and connected
