Cleo Smith

Post by jason_recliner » November 9th 2021, 4:13pm

This is a a bit random, but we don't have a crime subforum...

Just wondering if Cleo Smith's recent abduction made the news over your way. It's the most increidble story, a 4yo girl was abducted from a tent at a campsite up north while her parents slept in the same tent. Cue one of the biggest manhunts in Australian history, and the detectives found her 18 days later! She was (seemingly, we don't know the full dtails yet, maybe never will) relatively unharmed, locked in a house inhabited by a creepy AF aborigine who has about 50 fake social media profiles and obsessively collects Bratz dolls. The aborigine lived in Carnarvon, only a few km away from Cleo's family home.

I follow a lot of true crime and assumed the worst when she wasn't found after a day or two. So did most of WA. The vibe around the city when she was found was genuinely, beautifully inspirational. Everbody was talking about it, everybody had a little smile. We've got a pretty serious problem we're working through at the office but that day it didn't even matter.

What a little legend!

She just gave crime the middle finger.

As an aside, is aborigine a an insult. Came across that way to me, almost like someone saying Ni***.

No, aborigine is not an insult. It's a race or ethnicity or something (I'm not an 'anthropologist'). There are plenty of derogatory terms for them over here.

I know from watching a tv series and a couple of movies in which an aborigine detective is the star that it appears they are called blacks and some of their own race look down on those who walk the convicts path. Convict = :mrgreen: white settlers

Did a copper put a 9mm Hydra-Shok into the aborigine's perp's ass??
Nah. Unfortunately cops aren't really allowed to use their guns over here. They're more for ornamental purposes.

No, aborigine is not an insult.
Neither is it relevant to the crime.
Meritocracy: the privilege, wealth and advancement of those who chose their parents wisely.
Capitalism: a cult that promised to do good for the worst reasons.
Nationalism: a profound longing to go back to a past that never existed.
