Lunchtime Stabbing In Park

Witnesses describe lunchtime attack in city park

A man was stabbed in the chest in a Newcastle West on Wednesday, having intervened in a dispute in a city park in the middle of the day.

The incident happened at 1pm when members of the public came to the victim’s aid who was lying conscious near the corner of King and National Park streets, while the attacker fled the scene before emergency services arrived.

The Newcastle Herald spoke to a number of witnesses at the scene, describing how the incident escalated. Watch the video below.

“He just stabbed that dude for nothing because he was jealous because my friend, who I did juvey [juvenile detention] with, and have known her since we were babies, and he got cut and that’s the only reason he carried on like that,’’ said witness Melinda Garcia.

Hung Parliament...

Newly elected Senator gives new meaning to the term 'parliamentary package'.

Image: Facebook

On Thursday on The Grill Team, MG, Matty Johns and Julian Schiller (filling in for Gus) spoke to Jacqui about 'that' interview.

"A couple of days removed, how're you feeling about it?" asked Matty.

"I tell you what I'm a bit depleted from it all, it's a bit full on" responded Jacqui.

She goes on to talk about some of the reactions she's received and what she think the reactions would be if Tony Abbott made the same sort of comments.

Earlier On Triple M

Palmer United Party senator Jacqui Lambie has raised some… eyebrows after revealing exacty what she is looking for in a man.

The Palmer United Party’s outspoken new senator revealed on Hobart’s Heart 107.3 that she hasn’t had a partner for 11-years and was on the lookout for love.

"Let’s find love. Now they must have heaps of cash and they’ve got to have a package between their legs. Let’s be honest," the Senator said.

“And I don’t need them to speak, they don’t even need to speak.”

Radio hosts Kim and Dave invited any likely suiters to call in, one of which was 22-year-old 'Jamie'.

Lambie and the hosts asked Jamie about his financial credentials, his life experience and finally the size of his, um, parliamentary package.

"Are you well hung?” the federal senator asked Jamie.

"Hung like a donkey" he assured her.

Isn't it good to finally have a politician with a bit of personality!

Clarkey Traffic Jam

Aussie cricket captain stops traffic in free fuel promotion

Video: YouTube

NSW Police had to release a statement following traffic chaos, after Aussie cricket captain Michael Clarke literally stopped traffic on Monday, having taken part in a BP promotion giving away free petrol at a service station on the Pacific Highway at Wyoming on the Central Coast.

The giveaway, which saw Clarkey pumping fuel for customers, caused a massive traffic jam, which saw the Police brought in to help bring things under control.

The Central Coast Express Advocate reported "the giveaway caused a traffic jam from Wyoming back to the Narara roundabout before police regulated the traffic flow."

“I don’t know much about cricket but I recognised him straight away,” Ms Dixon told The Daily Telegraph.

“My tank was on empty and I’m very short of money so this was a pretty good day for me.”

Brisbane Water LAC - NSW Police Statement

Details: Between 6am and 3pm on Monday the 21st of July, 2014 Police from the Brisbane Water LAC conducted User Pays duties duties at a service station on the Pacific Highway, at Wyoming.

The event was held for the purposes of filming a television commercial and involved the appearance of Michael Clarke the current Australian cricket captain.

Between 10am and 2pm a promotion was held whereby free fuel was given out to motorists. As a result the area became quickly congested with traffic and pedestrians.

A traffic management plan was enforced with assistance of RMS staff and on site traffic controllers.

Delays were experienced by person using the roadway however, these delays were minimised by police and traffic coordinators limiting the access of persons and vehicles to the free fuel line.

At the conclusion of the event the area quickly became free of congestion and traffic.

Earlier On Triple M

UPDATE: The Australian Department Of Foreign Affairs have confirmed at least 27 Australians have been killed on Malaysia Airlines flight MH17.

Reports have surfaced that this number could be revised up to 48, as many of the nationalities on the flight are yet to be confirmed.


EARLIER ON TRIPLE M

Prime Minister Tony Abbott
says there is "strong evidence" a Malaysia Airlines plane that crashed in Ukraine, killing nearly 300 people including at least 23 Australians, was shot down.

Dutch authorities say there were 27 Australians but the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has so far only confirmed there were at least 23.

"This is a terrible tragedy for them, their loved ones, their families," Mr Abbott told ABC radio on Friday.

"My deepest, deepest condolences to everyone connected with people on this flight."

Amsterdam Airport said the passenger list also included 143 Dutch citizens, 20 Malaysians, 11 Indonesians, six from the UK, four from Germany, four from Belgium, three from the Philippines and one from Canada, along with about 50 unidentified passengers.

Some infants were also on board.

MH17 was carrying 295 people, including 15 crew, from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it crashed in rebel-held east Ukraine in what has been described as a "terrorist" attack.

The Ukraine area where the plane went down is at the centre of an ongoing separatist dispute.

Ukraine's government and pro-Russian insurgents have traded blame for the disaster, with comments attributed to a rebel commander suggesting his men may have downed MH17 by mistake, believing it was a Ukrainian army transport plane.

Debris stretched for kilometres in the area near the Russian border, with the jet's tail marked with the Malaysian Airlines insignia laying in a corn field, and insurgent fighters and fire trucks nearby.

International broadcasters are showing footage of what appears to be an Australian passport picked up from the wreckage. 

Mr Abbott said Australian officials were talking to the Dutch and Malaysians to find out more and arrangements are also being made to send officials to the Ukrainian capital of Kiev to provide assistance. 

"We can assure families that at the highest levels of government we feel for them, we grieve with them, we pray for them," he said. 

He says the tragedy is made worse by reports it may be a crime rather than an accident. 

"If it does turn out that this aircraft was brought down by a surface to air missile there is no doubt this would be ... an unspeakable crime and the perpetrators should swiftly be brought to justice," he said.

It was put to Mr Abbott that the surface to air missile could have come from only one place - Russia.

"Yes, that's a fair point," he said.

"But let's not leap to conclusions."

Mr Abbott was also asked whether Australia would allow Russian President Vladimir Putin to attend the G20 summit in Brisbane in November if it turned out there was Russian involvement.

"Let's just wait and see exactly what turns out to have happened here. Let's wait until we have all the facts in," he said.

In a separate interview on the Nine Network, Mr Abbott said there was some "quite strong evidence" the plane was shot down.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade says it is seeking to confirm the number of casualties provided by the Dutch. It is also seeking to confirm the identities of the Australians involved.

Qantas said it didn't have any code share passengers aboard flight MH17 and that the carrier didn't have flight routes tracking near or over the area where MH17 went down.

"There is no change to Qantas operations as a result of the Malaysia Airlines incident," Qantas said.

It's the second major aviation event to impact Malaysia Airlines this year.

Four months ago flight MH370 travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing disappeared over the Indian Ocean with 227 passengers, including six Australians, and 12 crew.

It still hasn't been found.

People concerned for the welfare of Australian family or friends on MH17 can contact DFAT's emergency centre on 1300 555 135.

Australian Suicide Bomber

What does news of an Australian suicide bomber in Iraq mean for us?

Violence in Iraq has reached a chilling new level with reports an Australian suicide bomber has killed three people in the heart of Baghdad.

At least 90 others were injured when the man detonated an explosives vest in a crowded marketplace.

Mick Molloy Friday morning expressed concern about the suicide bombing and what it means for security on Australian shores.

“I’ll just take my PC hat off for a minute and I think any Australians found to be fighting overseas need to be stopped before coming back into this country,” Mick Molloy said on Triple M’s The Hot Breakfast.

“That could be Bourke St, if a guy is prepared to do that in Iraq I don’t see why he wouldn’t return to Australia and be committed enough to attempt the same atrocity right here.” 

Listen to the full conversation with Mick Molloy, Eddie McGuire and Luke Darcy on Triple M's The Hot Breakfast below:

 

On Thursday the director-general of ASIO David Irvine said ‘tens’ of the Australians who fought in Syria and Iraq are already back on home soil.

National Security Correspondent for The Australian Paul Maley told the Triple M’s One Percenters on Thursday night these returned soldiers pose a real risk to national security. 

“The Syria problem is very much a threat on the horizon when these guys start coming back in numbers then that’s going to be a real problem,” Mr Maley said.

“They will come back armed with skills in tactics, skills in bomb making, skills in weapons handling. They’ll come back with a network of contacts that they have met over there. They’ll come back presumably more radicalised than they were when they went over there and in a position to really do some damage should they wish too.”

Gerard Baden-Clay Gets Life

Sentenced today to life behind bars after a jury found him guilty of murdering his wife Allison.

UPDATE: The Grill Team caught up with Michael Kaye who knew Gerard Baden-Clay through work and from their neighbourhood.

Michael Kaye on Gerard Baden-Clay

 

Earlier On Triple M

Brisbane man Gerard Baden-Clay has been found guilty of murdering his wife Allison.

A Brisbane Supreme Court jury delivered the unanimous verdict just before noon on Tuesday, after deliberating for about 21 hours.

The decision comes on the 21st day of Baden-Clay's trial.

Baden-Clay clenched his jaw and closed his eyes as he learned his fate.

A cheer from Allison's family erupted in the court as the verdict was delivered.

Allison's sister Vanessa Fowler wept and clasped her hands, and whispered "thank you" to the jury.

Allison's mother Priscilla Dickie is reading a victim impact statement to the court.

"I'm grieving over the late Allison June Baden-Clay," she said in a shaking voice.

"My daughter was a wonderful mother, a devoted wife, a caring daughter and loving aunt."

"One of the last things Allison did was to leave her marks on her husband," Mrs Dickie said, referring to scratches her daughter left on Baden-Clay's face on the night she died.

She said Allison had so much to offer her family and her three young daughters, but all that had been taken away.

She said her family had been sentenced to a lifetime of grief.

"It devastated me to know Allison was living in a troubled relationship," Mrs Dickie said.

She said Baden-Clay had betrayed her daughter and made a mockery of their marriage.

"The pain does not go away," she said.

She said her life now revolved around Allison's three daughters, and she said their courage had astounded her.

"Their resilience to this tragedy is a result of her guidance and love," Mrs Dickie said.

"The girls will never see their mother again. They've been condemned to a life sentence without the love and companionship only a mother can give."

"To kill your wife, to take away a mother and to still show no remorse has to us been one of the saddest and most distressing facts from this murder," Mrs Dickie said.

She said the impact has completely and dramatically changed the rest of her life, her husband's life and the lives of Allison's children.

"Allison did not leave her girls. She had so much to offer them," she said.

"Not being given the opportunity to say goodbye, hug or tell her how much we love her is shattering ... and the pain does not go away."

Baden-Clay wept as he listened to Allison's mother.

Allison's father Geoff Dickie has also told the court of his heartbreak, saying the wonder of his life had been taken away.

He said he knows his daughter would have had the strength to fight hard to the very end as her life was taken.

He said he can't sleep any more and the agony of his daughter's fate torments him every day.

Mr Dickie said Baden-Clay had left a black hole in the lives of so many.

"The murder of our daughter ... leaves an enormous black hole in our lives from which I will never recover," he told the court.

He told of still finding it hard to sleep and how he was haunted by the image of the moment his daughter was attacked.

"I know she would have found the strength to fight as hard and long as she could until the end before she was murdered," he said.

He vowed to raise his three granddaughters in the way Allison would have wanted, and that was a great privilege.

"Our lives will never be the same until the day I die," the grieving father told Baden-Clay.

He said a father's duty was to protect and care for his daughter.

"I've failed in my duty and I'll have to live with that," Mr Dickie said.

He said he gave Baden-Clay permission to marry his daughter but never gave him permission to betray.

"We accepted you into our family and you abused our trust with your lies and deceits," he said.

Allison's sister whispered the word "bastard" as her father told of giving his blessing when Baden-Clay had asked for Allison's hand in marriage.

Baden-Clay's murder conviction means he faces life imprisonment and at least 15 years without parole.

He shook and wept, with his eyes closed as Allison's sister Vanessa Fowler told Baden-Clay he was guilty of the most heinous crime

"My sister, for the first time since she married you, has come out on top," she told the court.

She said her sister had been ridiculed, degraded and belittled since her death.

Mrs Fowler said there was a "dark void" left inside the family.

She said her sister had "fought to the death, even when taking her last breath. She left her mark".

"It is because of you that three young girls have no mother," she told him.

Justice Byrne sentenced him to life in jail, meaning he'll spend a minimum of 15 years behind bars.

Baden-Clay shook as he was sentenced, his hands clenched in front of him.

He said Baden-Clay took his wife's body and dumped it at a nearby creek, and then put in place, and persisted in, a deception plan.

Baden-Clay had also invented the idea of a drug overdose as a ruse about what had really happened to Allison, and he'd shown a profound absence of remorse for his crime, Justice Byrne said.

He'd gone on to besmirch Allison's memory during the trial.

"You have no criminal history but you are definitely not of good character," Justice Byrne told Baden-Clay.

"You took a devoted loving mother from her three girls, blighting their lives."

'Meteor' Burns Up Over Australia

Watch videos: It's a bird, It's a plane, It's a.....

Image: Youtube/Kristian Harland

Astronomers say a meteor that was spotted in Sydney and Melbourne skies last night was nothing more than a two-tonne piece of a Russian rocket.
 
"This rocket was launched on Tuesday to lift a satellite into orbit and the rocket was just a leftover, a piece of debris, and then that decayed and fell into the Earth's atmosphere," a Monash University expert told Channel Seven.
 
Triple M listener Dave described the moment he saw it.
 
“I saw it for a good minute, I pointed it out to the missus. Remember in high school where you light a strip of magnesium with a Bunsen burner?"," he said.
 
"It was a really bright white light."
 
This video of the fireball over central NSW shows just how impressive it was.

32-year-old Bill Hillmann from Chicago is a longtime participant in the nine-day running of the bulls event and was gored in the right thigh on the festival’s third day.

The Navarra regional government said in a statement that the injury was serious but not life-threatening.

A 35-year-old Spanish man from Valencia was also in serious condition after being gored in the chest during the same run.

Over the past century there have been 14 fatalities at the fiesta.
