Post Script To Police Shooting

Some very interesting developments in the case of the man shot by a police officer after failing to pay for petrol.

William John Watkins, the shootee, is believed to have an extensive criminal record of burglaries, rapes, assaults on police and drug offences. Not a nice character by all accounts. Even worse - he was the main suspect in a double murder. No wonder he was so eager to stay away from the law. Judging by the picture in the article he may have been driving whilst wearing thongs and I consider that to be a crime punishable by death. Didn't have a lot going for him did he.

We have one cop in this country who can hold his head high. Or at least he will be able to hold his head high once his fractured skull is mended. Onya acting Sergeant Shane Gray. This country needs more police like you.

My sentiments prezacly, about the cop. What I would like to know is, how did the 'victim' get to Karatha in two days from Melbourne???
