The man, now 55, previously worked in the Clayfield, Virginia and Nudgee areas as a coach.
“It will be alleged a man inappropriately touch a girl known to him,” a police statement said today.
He has been charged with three counts of indecent dealing with a child under the age of 16 and is due to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on September 4.

I find it utterly beyond comprehension why an adult male feels as though he is entitled to molest a child or anyone for that matter.  this is the one thing that sends chills down my spine and makes me so mad.  Its gross, these are children who should not be subjected to this predatory behavior.  I could not be a cop because the sick bastards would not make it to court.

This and rape.  If he is guilty he should be shot and not waste our tax payers money on.

I trained out of the Clayfield college pool in the mid 90’s, i guess lots know who the coach was. But i did not see any inappropriate touching going on. Well the only thing i can remember is doing hard laps and then the coach would hold a hr strap over your chest until his watch would pick up your hr. Later they developed a handle for the hr strap which kept their hands off your chest, maybe this was in response to some parent feedback

James, I trained there too when I lived and worked in BrisVegas 92 to 95. I didn't see anything inappropriate going on either. Great training group and great sessions. My swimming improved out of sight when I trained in that group. The HR handle thing was developed by a Vietnam veteran who trained with the squad. Did you ever do the rides up to Caboulture and back for intervals at the velodrome?

They tend not to do it openly so everyone can see

The people who knew the person will know by now.

We're going through a situation where a teacher at my kid's former school being arrested for possession and making of material he should not have had - search warrants executed on his residence during the last school holidays.  While his name has not been published officially, there was enough knowledge among the school for the school to have to put out official communication to the parents.  So glad we made the move out of the school before our kids had him as a teacher or went on "school camp" with him.

I was a school governor back in the UK... we had a situation that meant we needed to suspend three male members of staff. The community made an "obvious" leap which was totally wrong and meant that they, and I, needed to be protected by the police for a short time.

So please don't jump to conclusions and allow the justice system to do its thing.

I'm going through something similar at the moment... Only someone has been leaving false statements online and I been receiving abuse via live chat. All because I left an unfavourable review for a company on Facebook after some less than encouraging contact with said company. Email, online chat and phone calls. Some of the chat's are below (the ones that weren't so disgusting I wouldn't post them). It's very easy for someone to come up with a bullshit story to rubbish your name. It's a very hard thing to recover from if you did no wrong. People still think you did it regardless.

The guy who's doing is an absolute nutter. He was dumb enough to call me from his office phone (that links to the bad review and him being the founder/managing director) once and forgot to put it on silent. I had two customers in the store at the time and had it on speaker phone while he went off his nut. I got straight on another phone and called, he picked up and told me who he was and his position at the company.

EDIT: I should add, he knows I know it's him as per this first chat, they quite often end pretty quickly because I call him out about CCTV etc... the others are some of the BS I'm dealing with.

I have no idea.  I think my wife looked into it once, as I have two Google reviews for my business, one 5* and one 2* from someone I don't know.  Though they may have called me once or something.  We responded to the 2* review but they never responded back!  They only left the star rating, no actual comments.

I often wonder why someone who claims to know as much as they do even needs a shop to sell them shoes. 

Surely with their superior knowledge they should just source the cheapest shoe online that they already know will work. 

Sorry mate, cant be of more help, in all the years running Trannies I've never had a complaint or legal threat :lol:

Best thing to do is to encourage all your genuine customers to go and leave you a review (maybe add something to your e-receipts with a direct link) so that you drown out the noise. You can also encourage people to flag the ridiculous one to Google. I've just done that and also left you a glowing report myself and will make Tom do it too!

:lol: Just jokes, for a while Macca and his lawyer had me on speed dial.

Ironically the bloke Macca was upset about also threatened legal action against me too.  

Then there was the whole Cadel thing.   :rolleyes:

I wish I could say the same. I've been in disciplinary meeting with the CEO of TA about 5 times.

Yet to do one with Miles, but it can't be far off. Always wanted to meet him.

For real?

I know Dan from ST has had to shut down various threads and has either been sued or threatened with a lawsuit multiple times!

Your response was exactly the type i respect when i see people trying to deal with negative reviews.  You were polite and pointed out clearly why you believe she's wrong and offered her the option to get in touch to resolve properly.  I can understand your anger but glad it didn't come through in your response as that's really unprofessional and often makes the review seem more accurate..

Mate, you're a disgrace, haha. What the hell did you do? Chuck your bike at a race referree or something. 

Runwith, good luck in dealing with these complainants. I've heard of this type of complaint action bring a scam. Said pole smoker complains about shop on social media, keeps doing it until shop owner offer huge discount or free product to shut them up. Reading your posts, gut feeling is the female poster fits the scammer profile more than the first nutter.

Hey Willie - Either there's a problem with your chat function or maybe you're ignoring me ???

It's a Saturday so he's probably busy with folk in the shop. Texting him works well! 🙂
