Totally Agree, the home invaders should know that they risk a severe beating or even death - and all the laws in Australia should be uniform to protect the home owner.

This is not a race issue, this is a retarded law that criminalises the home owner/defender for protecting their home and loved ones.

No need to say it's a law to protect "Aboriginals" when the same law applies to everyone.

I don't understand how this even remotely became a race issue.

No one has mentioned the fact that he is Aboriginal for the simple fact - it doesn't matter.
He was a criminal.
If the guy were white, there would be just as much of an uproar by the people as there is now.

I didn't even know the burglar was Aboriginal when I first heard that the man defending his family and home was being charged with murder - I was angered right away by the severe injustice of our government.
This guy was a criminal, who had previously been charged with breaking & entering and been put in jail. He had since been released, and low and behold, decides to break and enter again.
It was just tough luck on his end for breaking and entering a house with a Father who was willing to make sure his daughter was safe.

I will also make it clear that he didn't TRY to kill the guy. He was attempting a citizens arrest, and in doing so it went south. In all honesty I wouldn't be shocked if the burglar didn't try to resist, or fight back, which resulted in his later death (in the hospital, because his FAMILY turned his life support off).

Why cant we just admit the bloody reality here instead of going all judgmental and politically correct?



Look at those last 2 words and you'll see the problem. Some just won't take the blinders off and will fight to the death to keep them on. We have much the same problem with illegals here in the U.S, with the "catch and release" policy or "sanctuary cities" that protect illegals who are known felons. "Racist" is usually the first card they'll throw down.

ETA - I just wanted to add that it's a ridiculous law. He didn't deserve to die for breaking in, but the man probably didn't mean to kill him. All this never would have happened, if not for the burglar making the decision to break in and that should be taken in to account in the man's trial.

Why is manslaughter even in the equation with you?

Do this in the suburbs in America, you will be met with high projectile metal.the mans history of crimes do go into consideration, but ultimately go out the window if the situation that was explained be true.

Seriously, you should understand that with breaking into any house you run the risk of dying by the owner. And let's throw in in the assailant was aboriginal... Ok, so what, if it was a dangerous animal in the house would he have a right to kill it if his daughter was in danger? The west needs to just come together on some issues such as this and put an end to debate on them. IMO

It is interesting that I have read members from Australia and the UK post about how they settle differences with their fists, instead of needing certain weapons.
Hell, this guy just wrestled with someone that needed a lesson, and he is going to jail for it?
I guess your home isn't your castle in the land down under.

Criminals have more rights than victims! As soon as this guy entered this man's house, all bets are off. They automatically place their lives in jeopardy. The laws don't protect the rights of security and privacy of the homeowner. I don't care if the guy wasn't armed, he had no business being in the house!

A reasonable level of force does sound to me where the issue is at. I am not aware of what injuries where sustained to the home invader, but I have the feeling that there is more than one good punch involved in this.

It could have been as small a thing as the homeowner tackling the guy and the evildoer hit his head on a piece of furniture, breaking his neck.
Stuff like that happens.
It probably wouldn't have happened if Slater wasn't in the man's house (daughter's bedroom!) in the wee hours of the morning.

only read about this story today but its been agit8ing since I did.

What logical knuckle head could believe this is the correct outcome from this incident?

I hate Australian Political fear. No one wants to speak the taboo words - so they let incredibly stupid things like this happen.

au.news.yahoo.com...

Basically, a man (and a father) who was only recently released from prison for burglary offences was breaking into a families house this weekend.
The father/owner of the house being robbed woke and found the man his daughters room.

The details of what happened next haven't been released yet but the narrative is that owner wrestled with the burglar, burglar got injured was taken to hospital and died from his injuries.

The father/home owner is now in jail being charged with murder.

What no body is saying, is that he was Aboriginal and that Aboriginal Crime is increasing dramatically and this isnt an isolated incident.

If you do find an aboriginal in your home in the middle of the night in your daughters room, dont wrestle him - be nice and talk instead! /s


Before this whole thread turns into a race or anti/pro gun debate, i thought I should chime in.

There seems to be inconsistencies with this whole social media-generated story. The police just upgraded the charge from manslaughter to murder.. they wouldn't do that without reason.

If you search Facebook for the the accused bloke's name and select "Latest", you will find quite a few posts from family members or associates claiming that things are not what they seem at first.

The "intruder" was supposedly a regular at the house and was attending a party. The wife and daughter weren't even at home that night.
Neighbors are said to have seen 2 guys dragging him out the frontyard before the final moments and the house is known as a "drug house" in the neighbourhood.

I'm guessing more information will come forward soon.

Edit:
m.smh.com.au...

"Family members claimed Mr Slater-Dickson had not broken into the house in Cleary Street and instead had been invited to a party at the residence.
Mr Slater-Dickson's aunty, Pauline Dickson, said her nephew was a good man.
"He was a good bloke," she said. "He was dedicated to his family. " He had a good heart, he was loyal, he was beautiful.""

True, we don't know the full story. But why should we believe EVERYTHING the man's family says? Don't you think that, given the opportunity, they wouldn't try and avenge their son by making sure his killer gets the maximum charge (even if they know their son was in the wrong, and that this man may be wrongfully convicted)?

It depends on the circumstances. Tis will be taken on board at a trial.

If the death was caused by e.g. a single punch in a struggle, then we'll probably have a lesser charge. If the burglar was maliciously beaten up, well after it was necessary, then yes, murder.

I am sorry if the above does not satiate those on ATS who habitually bay for blood.

You find someone in your child's room at night you beat them until they can't get back up. If they are able to move, it's necessary to continue.

Totally agree. The family would be biased, however, it's becoming clear that this was not a random break in a la Hollywood movie.

Some associates are suggesting that that the deceased stayed at the house from time to time and was attending a party at the residence that night.

As i said, if you search Facebook you'll see quite a few of these claims.
I have screenshot but I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post them here... this is my 2nd post.


"The Australian" is also reporting:
"The call then captured Mr Batterham threatening Mr Slater-Dickson before whatNews Corp reports as a drawn-out fight taking place, the report alleges.

The 33-year-old father allegedly continued to attack Mr Slater-Dickson even after police arrived."

au.news.yahoo.com...

It seems to me that there were heavy drugs involved that night.
