Australian Man Beats Canadian in Wheelchair


A 35-year-old Canadian who uses a wheelchair was beaten in Sydney, Australia, on Tuesday and is in hospital in serious condition, according to police reports.

The man, Heath Proden is from Manitoba, was waiting to catch a train at a city train station at about 11 p.m. local time when he was approached and verbally assaulted by two teenage boys, the New South Wales police said.

"I know he was quite intimidated and the only way for him to escape was by the lift, which unfortunately was where they trapped him and beat him," his girlfriend, Kristin Sharrock, told CBC News.

they won´t get long for that! It makes me sick! There is a breakout of these as fast as any viruses. If they get three years they will kill with in 3 to five years.

  This kind of needed...  
to happen, purely for the fact that the government doesn´t acknowledge that something is wrong unless it receives international attention.

That said, i live about 10min away from MT Druitt and it´s a hole but nothing special in terms of crime in comparison to the general area.

For assault the Local Government Area was ranked 45 out of the 140 Local Government Areas that have populations greater than 3000.

For Harassment, threatening behavior and private nuisance the area was rated 34 our of the 140 Local Government Areas that have populations greater than 3000.

What these stats say to me is that for the most part these people bark is worse than their bite.

Persons born overseas make up 45.7% of the town population as apposed to the national average of 22%.

More interesting stats on mt druitt :)

  The kids should go to prison  
strapped in wheelchairs.

  This is what happens when you ban guns...  
the hooligans run amuck, free reign to do whatever, the great equalizer has been removed from the equation.

These guys won´t do will in prison when the other inmates find out what they are in for. Most likely they will leave prison in a wheelchair or a box.

  I am sorry to say this. @ val  
But I hope you are right!

You´re entirely right. If guns weren´t banned then he would have most likely pulled out a pistol and shot them both as that is the situation that most commonly arises. /sarcasm

Seriously, who do you think would most likely be carrying a gun, a dude in a wheelchair or 2 thugs who go around robbing and kicking the crap out of people? Why even bring an argument like that into a news story like this? It´s baiting to derail it into an argument on gun laws.

"the hooligans run amuck, free reign to do whatever, the great equalizer has been removed from the equation. "

Hooligans run amuck in any country whether they have gun control or not.

You are right, we should be looking to America as a shining beacon of light.

  I want...  
to see a summary of those to meeting their
match in jail.

It won´t happen, they are only 15 & 16, correctional facilities here are aimed at rehabilitation for the most part not making them worse.
