Rapist’s flood hero award revoked

The Queensland Government has revoked an award given to a flood volunteer because the man is a convicted rapist and armed robber.

Bob Riddler was nominated for a local hero award after helping the Shiloh Christian Church at Goodna, west of Brisbane, during the January floods.

He removed rubbish and cleaned houses in the Ipswich suburb.

He had previously served 12 years in jail and had only been released in September last year — via redwolf.newsvine.com
