The unnamed teenage hero who egged Fraser Anning at a Conservative National Party meeting in Melbourne this afternoon has been released by Victoria Police without charge.
According to 7 News Melbourne reporter Kristy Mayr, the boy was taken into custody by the cops after being held in a “citizen’s arrest” by Anning supporters/nationalist thugs at the conference.
Update: The boy who egged Fraser Anning is fine and in the care of @VictoriaPolice. Not known what will happen with him, if anything… Also a question mark over Anning’s retaliation & whether he could face assault charges of his own. @7NewsMelbourne— Kristy Mayr (@KristyMayr7) March 16, 2019

In case you missed it, the teenager made his way into the press conference part of Anning’s event, whipped out his phone, and calmly smacked an egg onto the racist senator’s pate.
In response, Anning turned around and struck the kid twice in the face, before the egger was tackled to the ground.
Someone has just slapped an egg on the back of Australian Senator Fraser Anning's head, who immediately turned around and punched him in the face. @politicsabc @abcnews pic.twitter.com/HkDZe2rn0X— Henry Belot (@Henry_Belot) March 16, 2019
Correction: Minor has just slapped an egg on the back of Australian Senator Fraser Anning's head, who immediately turned around and punched him in the face, TWICE, and went for more. Minor tackled to the ground by multiple adult Anning supporters. Only minor taken away by police— Kristy – Book Nerd (@KristyBookNerd) March 16, 2019
Now, responses on Twitter seem to be split between calling for the kid’s canonisation/immediate recognition by the Order of Australia, and wondering if Senator Anning is going to be prosecuted for assaulting a minor.
I've just seen the footage of the #FraserAnning egging. Anning reacts by assaulting the young man. THE POLICE ARE NOW OBLIGATED TO CHARGE ANNING. I've been a lawyer for over 2 decades & IMO there is NO argument that Anning was acting in self-defence. #auspol #Christchurch https://t.co/X7KVgNxuir— Adam Houda (@LawyerAdamHouda) March 16, 2019

i have one hero and it's the kid who egged fraser anning right in the head— Zoë ???? (@zoe_harri) March 16, 2019
@VictoriaPolice have to charge @fraser_anning after he assaulted a teenage boy. The footage clearly shows him hitting the boy a second time without further provocation from the boy. Failure to charge him will see a massive public outrage! #auspol #FraserAnning #Senator— Peter Harden – Keyboard Che Guevara. (@hardenuppete) March 16, 2019
Can anyone answer this? Why wasn't Anning arrested after punching a teenager twice in the head and then trying to kick the teen when he was being held down by white supremacist meatbags? https://t.co/i8fpvIF4r2— Ketan Joshi (@KetanJ0) March 16, 2019
The consequences is that he will go down as one of the all-time Australian heroes.— Dylan Leach (@leachitup) March 16, 2019
Bradman, MacKillop, Curtain, Banjo, Warne, Mabo…Kid that egged Fraser Anning. https://t.co/e9JvCVWyJZ
This kid should immediately be given Fraser Anning’s senate seat. https://t.co/kpb3WiuTB3— Rudi (@RudiEdsall) March 16, 2019
Dear Commissioner of Victorian Police,— Adam Houda (@LawyerAdamHouda) March 16, 2019
YOU ARE OBLIGATED TO CHARGE #FraserAnning with assault. The video evidence is clear. Anning has NO defence. I'll be monitoring the situation carefully.
It is the duty of every Australian to carry an egg at all times lest they encounter a Fraser Anning— Fiona Katauskas (@FionaKatauskas) March 16, 2019
In these very dark times, at least we have people like eggboi to carry on the good fight.
