Naden intent on freedom
14 Mar, 2012 04:00 AMTHE woman leading the hunt for Malcolm Naden believes the fugitive relishes a life on the run and will go to any lengths to remain at large.Assistant Commissioner Carlene York repeated yesterday her calls for local landholders to lock their doors.
She had confirmed earlier that Naden now had a .22-calibre semi-automatic rifle and ammunition stolen from a homestead near Gloucester.
The suspected murderer has led police on a chase for almost seven years.
‘‘He seems to want a life on the run. He doesn’t seem to need human contact,’’ Ms York, the head of Strike Force Durkin, said.
‘‘He will go to any lengths not to come into our custody.’’http://www.theherald.com.au/news/local/news/general/naden-intent-on-freedom/2487081.aspx
THE fact that every police officer, every retail worker, everyone in NSW is at risk of being shot with a stolen or otherwise illegal gun is not reason enough, apparently, to act against the limitless supply of the weapons. The risk is not great enough, it seems, although you may agree with me that the shooting of Senior Constable David Rixon early this month is reason enough.But what of the ever-present threat to the 50 police officers actively involved in the hunt for Malcolm Naden? As you know Naden is alleged to have shot a policeman a few days before Christmas using a rifle stolen from a Nowendoc house. You will know, too, that Naden is reported by police to have stolen another rifle from a property near Gloucester almost two weeks ago.
Guns for Naden
Should we wait until another copper is shot before we, the community acting through the state government, take the essential and obvious step to protect police involved in the search for Naden? Was the shooting of the policeman in December not reason enough because he survived? That obvious step is to request, and require if police have that power, the owners of firearms within or near Malcolm Naden’s range to hand those weapons in to police until Naden is captured.
