A little bit of history on One Punch Can Kill...
The One Punch Can Kill campaign was initially launched by the Premier of Queensland, Queensland Police Minister Judy Spence and Commissioner of Police Bob Atkinson on 17 December 2007.
Featuring radio, bus back, street press, internet and TV advertising, the messages were out in force – fighting is simply not cool. Just let it go.
Assault could steal your future and your actions could result in negative impacts on your family; your employment; overseas travel, the guilt of taking another person’s life and could possibly result in a criminal record.
Victims of assault don’t always walk away with just a bruise. Permanent disability, ongoing care by family and friends, employment and future prospects taken and the inability to travel overseas can all result.
You showed your support by wearing the campaign merchandise and supporting the cause on Facebook and Myspace.
But, unfortunately, violence still exists in Queensland today
So how do we stop this rising trend and change a culture that says violence is ‘ok’?
We asked you to tell us...
