A TEENAGE robber shot dead by police was the brother of two men convicted over the slaying of highway patrol officer Glenn McEnally six years ago.The identity of Tavita Taufahema, 18, was revealed last night - the day after he was killed having taken a hostage in an armed hold-up at the Canley Heights Hotel in western Sydney.Two police officers who raced to the pub following a triple-0 call early on Tuesday fired their service weapons when Taufahema refused to drop his gun. There is no suggestion they knew the identity of the young robber, who was with an accomplice. But one relative last night accused police of targeting the family deliberately, as Taufahema's mother Helen said he was "a good boy".
Gee, the two of them went into a pub with a rifle and a pistol, robbed the pub as well as 15 patrons and then held the pistol to the head of the bar manager, and the mum thinks her son was a good boy.
I must be living in an alternate reality.
Well done to the cops involved. Concentrate on the fore sight, centre mass, double tap. Some might feel bad about the death of an 18 year old, but my sympathy goes to those who had to deal with the trauma of being robbed at gunpoint by a couple of idiots.
