Welcome to The Lounge for another week…
Next week it’s all about Winter, this week it’s all about Money.
If was ten times smarter, (and blessed with the ability to commit and see tasks through to their end), I would like to have become a Detective.
The thrill of the chase is clearly in my blood. When a huge case breaks, especially in NSW, I’m insatiable. I relish all media until I’ve explored the story to its fullest. I form my own conclusions about the Whodunit and it becomes my ‘topic of the week’ as the story unfolds.
Most recently, the crime that’s had me checking the news at an alarming rate, is the one involving 20 year old student, Jamie Gao and ex-NSW Police Detectives, Roger Rogerson and Glen McNamara. As soon as Jamie’s body was found wrapped in plastic and floating off Cronulla Beach, it was safe to assume that he was not an innocent party in this case.
Greed does not take long to strike.
This boy, barely old enough to be a man, must have thought he was untouchable. What was he thinking, mixing in those murky circles?
How a kid can be involved in such a high stakes crime, how a kid can be acquainted with such high profile police and criminals, is too far-fetched to be believable.
The bittersweet upshot of this particular case is that millions of dollars’ worth of methamphetamines did not make it to our streets. This time…
Another young Jamie Gao is undoubtedtly climbing the ranks. Another untouchable.
Greed is never good.
If human life is meant to be priceless, how is it so easily sacrificed for a dollar?
