The man had choices. All those involved in either drugs or 'supplements' had choices.

The 'coming back to bite you on the bvm' was only a matter of time. 

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.

nevertheless a public explanation is required from the police

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.

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    COOKED by The Oracle

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    Thanks, but no thanks! In a round where the club was supposed to thank their fans for the support during the year, the Melbourne Football Club chose to do otherwise with a 53 point loss to a team that sat 15th on the ladder.  Don’t give us cheap jumpers that can’t be sold in the Demon shop.  Don’t give us vouchers to shop there, give us something on the field, which is why we come to the football in the first place.

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September?

    We have seen it all before… Yes, a wonderful idea to showcase what used to be in football.  Big crowds, umpires who knew how to apply the rules and not opinions, high marks, skilful players. But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    Thanks to Demonlanders for their input into this week’s preview. Ralphius Maximus is short and bittersweet: We'll crack in at the bounce to create a contest, win our share of the ball, butcher the forward movement and get scored on easily from the intercepts. Not that hard to predict. Big Demon says: Unfortunately Collingwood will win because they have a lot more to play for.
