Magistrate - Tatura Man Should Go to Jail

A magistrate says a Tatura man who threatened police officers with a knife should go to jail. The mentally ill man, Jason Farrow, 34, took amphetamines only hours before he was shot 3 times in the chest, saying he wanted to die, the magistrates heard yesterday. Mr Farrow has been charged with a number of offences including endangering life, making threats to kill and assaulting police with a weapon. The man’s Japanese wife, who is awaiting citizenship, and their 7 week old daughter could be deported if he is sent to jail. The hearing was adjourned part-held until December.
