Yep it is amazing. Last night on 360 Robbo went through Bombers’ tale of woe he almost implied Bomber had no choice but to end up where he is now. At one stage neither Robbo or Whately said anything at all and I thought they were having an impromptu minutes silence. 

If the guy is guilty I hope they lock him up.

Lucky but still sad and it appears  mostly just self harm at this stage. It could have been a lot worse. If his self radicalization was more extreme he might have lived up to his nickname.

The items in the locked room are reported to have Bomber's DNA on them. 

The largest item seized during the raid was 839.7 grams of MDMA which reportedly was not in the locked room.  Re this item: 

"Senior Constable Bourke said the 839.7 grams of MDMA was contaminated by the clandestine drug unit so DNA could not be found but police were still investigating a connection between these drugs and the 54-year-old".

https://www.theage.com.au/national/victoria/bomb-tatts-and-bang-bang-police-allege-large-money-exchanges-between-thompson-and-drug-accused-20180502-p4zcwr.html

It beggars belief that a specialised group of cops could contaminate evidence but somehow they did...

Maybe it was 1839.7 grams at one point...

I don't understand this dna contamination of the 839gm of mdma

i always understood they could detect (differentiate) multiple dna profiles in a sample and could therefore at least determine if there was any dna from thompson even where there was police dna on it due to mishandling

unless.... it was suspected that the handling of another item by the police could have transferred thompson's dna from that item to the mdma

whatever, i think this 'contamination' needs to be further explained publicly to eliminate any accusations of 'tampering' with evidence especially as the mdma would appear to be the largest example of 'commercial'  level trafficking

It’s easier than you think

 

At a guess, it will come down to police not swapping rubber gloves. The procedure would be when an item is located you change gloves to ensure they are sterile so whenever the item is picked up they can’t be an acquisition of transfer of DNA. 

 

The raid would of been video tape and when they were searching they wouldn’t have realised they were picking up a kg of MDMA (it could of been in normal packaging). 

 

When they realised what what they had it would of been too late because it was video. Realising the money that will be thrown at Thompson defence it wasn’t worth using that evidence. 

 

The cladestine unit also deals with drug labs(the only unit that is allowed to make them safe)  and are required to make the lab ‘is safe’ before a complete search is completed. In the process of making the lab safe the above could of occurred.

This has nothing to do with the essendon drug saga, Thompson Left Geelong under a cloud, his drug use would have started years ago, people like to find excuses and someone else to blame when their lives go wrong. it's one thing to take drugs and there's another thing to be a drug dealer no sympathy for drug dealers, Thompson is a rich man already so no need to sell drugs, or maybe he has guilt on his conscience, he brought his Club that he loves on it's knees because he was part of a cheating regime him and hird.

Yeah, but footy fans aren't renowned for their fairness or good judgement. Carlton haven't gotten over their industrial level tanking, WCE only have to blink for people to recall their drugginess, and Essendon will never escape this world class drug scandal.

We have enough trouble dealing with simply being the MFC.  So f*** the EFC and all who get dragged down by the undertow.

Well the drug saga came to light as a result of an investigation into organised crime. Which it would seem bomber is also mixed up in. Doesnt seem like too much of a leap to me.

Not to mention that clearly his thinking on the matter of substances going into the body is obviously totally skewed.

BB as someone who knows a bit about addiction, it is a very difficult monster to control.  Individuals are a victim to the addictive qualities of the drug.

He was in a position of trust and responsibilities. 

He had enormous resources and ample opportunities to make good judgement. He failed himself and others.

I have not one single ounce of sympathy for such kind. I dont Ernest.

He not only has brought misery upon himself, more fool him but without doubt he's affected others by design or decision.

If a victim...hes a victim of his own stupidity. I care not for such.

Ive seen the harm drugs can do. They are the scourge of our society.

He's made Faustian deals which are now calling for payment. 

Such is life...Tough shlt.

I understand your position and your comments have validity. However, believe me, not everyone has choice due ....well to life circumstance, personality and mental health. In this case, you have pricked a nerve. I'm not just talking about Bomber and the scourge of addiction but the whole community of addicts that are trapped in a vicious downward spiral. I'm not sure I like the term addiction but rather that folks who are caught up in this world are trapped because of their physiological and physiological dependence. It does not matter if you have money and fame, the addiction is the same.  Yes, I have sympathy because the future outlook is not good, and I'm not going to state the obvious. Fundamentally, addiction and mental health go hand in hand. We do need sympathy and compassion irrespective of the person.

I am talking about Bomber Ernest. I dont give a flying f about his demise. I dont. 

His own predicament is testament sufficient..youd have thought. He also without doubt had influence upon decisions that affected the welfare of others.

Mental health is a serious issue. Drugs dont help it. It would appear he self medicated in lieu of help. 

Pile all your excuses over there Ernie >>>>>>

His kind are a blight.

I agree Ernest, but the dealers can go rot in hell as far as I am concerned Peddling their poison and lining their pockets to the expense of our children., destroying our society,.and causing heartbreak for mothers and fathers.

People that do drugs are weak, and if Thompson was just a addic then there is sympathy, but he is making it selling it and he needs the death penalty he kills people, drug dealers are  murderers, let's start calling these people by their real names, anyone who makes ice are bottom feeders.

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by the Oracle

    Thankfully they moved this week’s game from Sydney where the sun shines and the virus breeds ever so slowly and almost nobody returns a positive test. The change of fixture comes at precisely the right time to allow everyone in town to head to the MCG on Sunday at around 3:30pm, not to catch up with what’s going on inside the ground but rather, to do what’s fashionable for woke folk in 2020 — pulling down statues. It’s time for Kevin Bartlett and Leigh Matthews to go but you can’t touch Norm Smi

    LESSONS IN LOSING by George on the Outer

    Turn up for the game and look like you want to win it.  Melbourne lost this game to Geelong, a game after a couple of extended breaks, looking like they were at the end of a 22 game season. Right from the start there was a lack of intensity across the board, as the Demons played exactly the type of game that the ageing Geelong list wanted. Geelong repeatedly played possession footy, to avoid having to run those ageing legs, something that Melbourne failed to exploit.  To use the oft quot

    QUARRANTINO by Whispering Jack

    At a little after 4.00pm last Saturday, the MCG ceased to be the centre of the AFL universe. That was when the AFL’s el supremo Gil McLaughlin announced that the Bombers’ Conor McKenna had returned a COVID-19 positive result and declared that the game set for the following day between Essendon and Melbourne was postponed.  What followed was truly the stuff of a pulp fiction novel. We witnessed a suitcase load of mental gymnastics and spin calculated to let McKenna (and the Essendon Football

    When the Melbourne team sang “The Grand Old Flag” last Saturday at Marvel Stadium in the absence of skipper Max Gawn, Ed Langford and Adam Tomlinson who were first time winners at their new club and Jayden Hunt, the leading goal kicker of the day it was passed off as an honest mistake. Taken in isolation, it most probably was accidental but the problem is that little accidents have been happening far too often in the club’s recent history and, in this case, it was symptomatic not only of a day t

    A POINT OF DIFFERENCE by George on the Outer

    It was Melbourne v Carlton at the comics stadium; a game between 16 and 17 in 2019. How could anyone pick a winner?  There had to be a point of difference, and so it would prove to be as the Demons literally fell over the line at the end, by a solitary point. In an almost complete replica of the Richmond v Collingwood game two nights previously, one of the sides (Melbourne in this case) rushed out to a five goal lead in the first quarter, while the Blues failed to bother the goal umpir

    EXPOSED FORM by The Oracle

    Carlton fancies itself to beat Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday and, based on exposed form, why not? The Blues took it right up to the reigning premiers in their last up start and the Demons were simply horrible against the Eagles at Optus Stadium. That opening game of the season revived all of the nightmares of 2019 for a team that went inside the 50 metre arc 45 times, an advantage of 10 times over the home side and yet lost by almost five goals. Such statistics sum it up for a gam

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w
