Freo's View

We live in strange times, where respect for fellow humans and property are often just a second thought, if at all.

I was quite surprised to see it is business as usual at the Fremantle Sail&Anchor pub this Sunday, after a young man fell from their balcony last evening at 8.30 and died in Fiona Stanley Hospital last night.

I am not blaming anyone for the accident, but I wonder why the Sail&Anchor does not show more respect for the dead man and his family by closing the pub for a day.

    Maybe the pub ethos is like the theater one? “The show must go on”. Either way the onus is to prevent it happening again, perhaps with a higher glass addition or stainless steel wire between the uprights. Very sad.

    Such a sad and tragic accident. Personally I can’t believe that the terrace where the accident occurred was open today. Surely if it happened once, it could happen again.
