Today i read about candle lit vigils being held for the "refugee" who died during the recent Manus Island riot.
I make the following points.
These people were calling him a poor refugee who came here seeking our help. Nobody knows the history of this man. For all we know he could have been a criminal fleeing the law in his own country. People should not make claims that cannot be substantiated.
This man could have also been an instigator of the riot and been killed whilst attacking others.
If you wish to hold candle lit vigils please do so for those who we know the facts about.
