      Yeah media don’t have any interest in telling the stories of the innocent citizens brutalised by gang members for trivial reasons. Plenty of stories out there. They bash we pay through ACC.

      I wonder what the total of that cost is.

        Sorry Noel but you can’t have read that he was just a good family man trying to make an honest living as a rap artist and like all those gang members killed before him was just in the process of ‘turning over a new leaf’.
