A couple shot by police at a private swingers party while dressed as comic book villains will launch legal action against Victoria Police, seeking hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages.
Lawyers acting for Dale Ewins, 35, and Zita Sukys, 37, will claim police were aware Mr Ewins was in possession of a toy gun when heavily-armed members of the Critical Incident Response Team opened fire inside a King Street venue on July 8.
“We understand that prior to the attack, staff at the venue repeatedly told Victoria Police that the ‘gun’ was a toy. We understand some staff offered to simply obtain the toy themselves to safely resolve the situation.
Dale Ewins, who worked as a hospitality manager on the Bass Coast, was shot “multiple times in his back” before he was Tasered and assaulted by police, according to his lawyer.
The couple had attended the Saints and Sinners Ball at Inflation nightclub, when police received “a number of phone calls in relation to the male with the firearm, including from the venue,” according to Superintendent Lisa Hardeman.
The gun was a replica, part of a costume worn by Mr Ewins who was dressed as Batman villain the Joker, while Mr Sukys came as Harley Quinn, popularised in the movie, Suicide Squad.
Everyone knows the rules, don’t bring your fake gun to the private swingers party. This event just proves my theory that Suicide Squad was specifically made to sell creepy cosplay costumes for guys with foot fetishes and chicks with pierced clitoral hoods.
Shout out to the trigger happy cop that was SO excited to shoot up a sex party. I imagine that as he walked through this nightclub, everyone kept yelling that no one had a real gun and he was just like Stallone in Copland with his ears ringing and focused and shooting fools.
Do you think everyone finished the orgy orrr did they ride to the hospital? That was a dumb question. You don’t go to a sex party and not finish. No one has ever gotten blue balls at a swinger’s party. No one.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think Dale Ewins and his wife probably got off by being shot together. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
