    A career criminal.

    Sure he had a difficult upbringing,as many others do,but its no excuse for ending up a career criminal.

    Many actually are worse after being in jail,as its the university of crime,they learn off each other.

    In fact at the Youth centre,they keep the kids from different geographical areas separate,to restrict learning new tricks from each other.

    As an example i have a good mate who grew up in and out of orphanages.Had a shocking upbringing.Orphanages in those days were not much fun.Never knew his biological parents.

    Stole cars,burgled houses,etc,etc in his early teens.

    Was offered a job at Lovelocks,a refrigeration wholesaler,at 19,on the condition he changed his life completely,which he did,and after 40 yrs,is still there.His kids now work in the same company as well.

    Great that he made it out of the Fridgie Circle, Paul. sort of.. Who knows what lurid tales he could tell today.

    The fact that Bowden went equipped with a Bowie Knife & a Crowbar did not imply he & she were up to no good. She was going to split Bamboo Cane for a friend & he was going to dig Fence post holes for a mate, it was just that they got the wrong addresses is all.

    Don't know why the cops thought otherwise?

    Melbourne was traditionally bad for that sort of thing going right back to the early years there.Deadly shootings on rise in Melbourne as gun culture grips city

    Ned Kelly didn't take his gun to Melbourne as they weren't permitted in the gaol.

    They will never get that done as they can be easily had on the black market.


    The ones that can't get them seem to use knives these days,anyway.

    So instead of a quick Cop shootout on the street we will see hand to hand combat using shivs & shanks by Leatherman?.

    A good mate mentions they take a lot of the thugs here in Melbourne. You're right, illegal firearms are clearly far to easy to get.


    "eternal vigilance is the price of liberty" was true in 1790s as it is now
