When a Person of Interest in a shooting investigation and your friends are tagging you into the story on Facebook, you know it’s 2015

EARLIER today we carried a police report on their interest in meeting one John Platt and having a chat with him about the shooting in Gowrie earlier in the year.

We were then more than intrigued to see what appear to be the fugitive’s friends tagging each other into the story and indeed tagging the man himself.

Jonny Platt’s facebook page certainly makes for an interesting read.

While it lasts the post and comments can be found on Facebook.


UPDATE: We note that while many of those tagging in on the story are friends of Mr Platt on facebook not all of them wish to be known as his friend.
