A boy has been bitten on the leg by a dingo on Fraser Island after he was faced with a pack when he raced up a sand dune in Queensland.

The child was returning to a campsite with his family during their holiday when the attack happened about 6pm on Saturday.

A heroic pokies customer has thwarted two would-be armed robbers who smashed their way into a Melbourne venue carrying a machete and a metal pole.

Police are now hunting the pair and have released CCTV footage of the incident, showing the patron flooring one of the men with a right hook.

Standing S.O.P's in the event of Armed robbery :   
 Patron / Staff safety first  / Comply comply / eyes down  / observe discreetly / listen and take note of traits / the $$$ are insured / defend Patrons / Staff / yourself if attacked / You have the right to use any and all reasonable force,  to be able go home with the same amount of holes in you as you went to work with .

The hardest race to pick a winner is the Melbourne Cup.
And that is because they are all actually trying to win.

I have a Jeep Wrangler and this doesn’t offend me at all. I have a feeling this bloke who I have never heard of probably gets offended a lot. Like the blokes in my office are always putting up pictures of pink jeeps etc. yet I point out that 4 of them drive Toyota Klugers the ultimate soccer mums car. It’s just banter

Bingo... like Holden / Ford, etc..

Just not sure why there are people whose sole objective in life is to wake up and find something to be offended by and become SJW of the Day. ??? ??? ???

Why is offended???

If he doesn't like their comments or their show, DON'T WATCH IT!!!
I don't like dancing with the stars, so I don't watch it.
I don't like pickled onions so I don't eat them. But if some does it doesn't offend me.

Where the hell will all this PC BS end???
For gods sake take a joke.

I reckon the pretty little twat is just after some attention as he obviously isn't in the limelight.

Rant over.

WTF?
Quote
Police are investigating a shocking attack on a disabled man by three teenage girls in Adelaide's northern suburbs.

In disturbing vision provided to 9News, the young man is shown lying on the ground, cradling his head and crying as the offenders kick and punch him while screaming at him.

The person who provided the two-minute video told 9News the man being attacked has a disability.

After about one minute, the man attempts to stand up and the female attackers demand the password to his mobile phone.

He is then beaten to the ground again by one of the attackers, who unleashes a tirade of foul language at her victim while the other girls are heard laughing at what is unfolding.

In the vision, one of the attackers appears to be wearing a Playford International College uniform.

9News contacted the state education department, which confirmed that although the incident occurred outside of school grounds, they are making enquiries to identify the students involved.

my guess is that one of thier mates filmed it, then it’s been shared amongst thier friends as the scum think it’s funny, and likely someone with a shread of decency or a gripe against the scum who’s seen it has then passed it on to nine news to hopefully get them in trouble, but more likely try and make money from it.
