    Dunno, REN TIN TIN, but I am sure someone will ask em, and of course the target participants will dine out on the story for years given the media publishing of their names in the papers. I wonder what "engaged in congress" really means, though the writers tried a few other descriptions and I think embarrassing was used too.

    I believe the gun was in females mouth

    And something else was in the female, a little lower down.

    However that is somewhat irrelevant to my original point.

    The site Security had already told the Police that "toy" weapons were on site.

    As I said earlier, the Ethical Standards review (if it ever made public) should make interesting reading.
    Likewise the legal proceedings, which both the male and female persons involved have launched will be "interesting' to observe.

    Ren Tin Tin. The police were "called" to the venue. I don't believe they are members of the club.

    You could say they were dressed for the occasion! but armchairs aside somebody will eventually sue and get a payout, that is the way it is today, Funny state Victoria might have gone to pot.

    And I'd suggest that a bullet each, erroneously, delivered is a fair reason to receive compensation.

    Contrary to some others beliefs, IMO Vic Pol should held to standards they boast about and that they expect of the general community.

    We wouldn't want open slather weapons use like the USA

    And even community members "in arm chairs" have the right to expect sensible behavior of Vic Pol members.

    Icon12 Armour plated lounges to the ready.

    Of course! and a good example of pre judged prejudice in that example too, but then armchairs rarely get firearms pointed at them, real or otherwise, even in jest. Sit comfortable, I'll wait for the result, of course we could start a new thread/war

    But I jest!

    I'm predicting the results of the "investigation" won't be made public , or if they are will be shamelessly redacted. For "operational" reasons" of course.

    My faith in the Police force investigating themselves remains very limited.

    IMO the court proceedings will probably reveal a lot more.

    Unless the Vic Pol manage to close the court to the public and press. For "operational reasons" of course.

    Let's see what pans out. I for one are not holding my breath waiting to see the footage of the Police body cameras. (If they were turned on!)

    And for the record a few people have already stated the gun was in the mouth of one shooting victims and not pointed at police.

    ...speaking of the war. Here is a pre-war (both wars) 1905 Renault pictured somewhere in Brisbane. I wonder if it still exists.

    With the car in a barn out the back! Kept on blocks and covered with a tarp and still in original perfect state. They even started it at least twice a year. Only the brakes will need a little adjusting. Not only that but free to a good home.

    I'd rather have the house, gorgeous thing that is, and if the cars out back in the barn its all yours.

    I know a guy who could probably make one of those, anyone got a blueprint..?

    I could build the house too if someone wanted to fund it..

    Hmmm, just doing some research on the owner of afore mentioned Renault, it appears to have be owned by one Sir David Hardie whose residence and surgery appears to have existed in Wickham terrace Brisbane, so it is highly unlikely the house has survived the ravages of city expansion in that area.

    So you discovered it is/was in Wickham Tce?

    http://trove.nla.gov.au/work/2218228...onId=243285026

    If it's Firhall at 135 Wickham Tce, it's long gone

    Ps:

    "135 Wickham Terrace is a 12 level office building offering two basement levels of parking for 79 cars. The site also includes Firhall, a separate two storey building to the rear. Net lettable area of the main building is 5,969m² (typical floor area 500m²), and Firhall is 560m². The building is located directly opposite Central Station and is only a few minutes walk to the Brisbane GPO and Queen Street Mall."

    Bugger, they probably bulldozed the barn with the car still in it.

    Long gone at that location! Great big house, wasn't it. Renault exported strongly around the turn of the century - I'm always surprised at how many Edwardian-era cars are around. Great photo, for which thanks too.

    Funny you should mention the Deens. I had dinner with that extended family at their houses many years ago. Now THAT was an interesting evening. Probably not for these pages, but let's remember for next time we meet!

    Is Wickham Tce Brisvegas the same as Wickham St Brisvegas? The Ira Berk Renault showroom was opened at 116 Wickham St in 1951.
