        Quote attributed to Detective Senior Constable Damien LEEDING days before being shot when talking about a spate of armed robberies in South East Queensland "We're going to get those bastards".

        Detectice Senior Constable Damien LEEDING was shot in the face with a shotgun when responding to an armed holdup. On Thursday 02/06/2011, the news released information that his family has made the difficult decision to turn his life support system off and donate his organs.

        The Grubs did get caught and their charge has been upgraded from Attempted murder to Murder - We are all waiting to see what sort of sentence will be handed out.
        If at first you don't succeed, remove all evidence of your attempt.

            RIP Brother. I hope you have the death penalty down under, because these guys deserve it.
