I read this and simply shook my head. Purgery. Pure and simple.
See... if ya read the link you found that apparently there has been testimony in a trial Down Under about a gang shooting involving a "military style" rifle.
Obviously the media has the story completely wrong... and obviously those involved are lying. There is simply no way that boy was shot in the shoulder.
He couldn't have been. Guns are illegal in Austrailia.
