Another day in Melbourne. At least this story has some good news to it.
A tradesman has armed himself with a hammer and confronted armed robbers who held up a 7-Eleven in Hampton Park, Melbourne on Tuesday morning.
In the early hours of Tuesday, 3 men armed with machetes and a hammer smashed their way into the 7-Eleven even after the attendant, Jaspreet Singh, had locked the doors. They then smashed their way past the security screen that is supposed to protect the attendant and made off with the cash. According to Mr Singh, they were of African appearance.
Although the robbery was over by the time the tradie was able to intervene, like all opportunist scumbags, the crooks bolted at the sight of armed opposition. Fancy that? The tradie then stood watch until Police arrived (too late as usual). Perhaps the worst part of the video: the “reporter” from Channel Nine calling the attendant “brave” for allowing the crook to come behind the counter. Neurolinguistic trickery at it’s finest. What’s “brave” about being a victim?
Oh sorry, forgot, it’s Australia.
It’s not the first time in recent history an Aussie tradie has heroically come to the aid of fellow citizens against criminals. Remember this:
Mike Nolan would be proud.
This happens just after the home invasion and robbery of Essendon players and the group bashing of a teenager at Highpoint Shopping Centre. But again, “nothing to do” with self defence laws.
And before the usual cries of “deport them!” ring out: YOU CANNOT DEPORT FIRST GENERATION AUSTRALIAN CITIZENS. So let’s not bother with that. Yes, immigrants who commit crimes should be turfed, no question, however the offenders in question are unfortunately, for the most part, Australian citizens. Thanks John Howard and Kevin Rudd.
It’s just another day in Daniel Andrews’ Victoria – where he’s now “tackling” the youth crime crisis by building a new luxury resort, sorry, youth detention centre in Werribee. This was done without consultation with the local residents and of course, as the real estate property evaluation on the current detention facility in Parkville was just too irresistible to his Chinese benefactors. Gotta get that sweet, sweet stamp duty revenue yo.
This is the same underwhelming Daniel Andrews who got on “Sixty Minutes of Socialist Circle Jerking” aka Q&A on ABC on Monday night, spruiking “multiculturalism and diversity” while at the same time completely avoiding the contributions of “multiculturalism” to his state’s crime rate. He was only to be outdone by LNP stooge Josh Frydenberg, feigning outrage at the level of home invasions and not mentioning he’s part of the party that disarmed the populace and allowed this to happen.
Now, compare this whole ordeal to a service station robbery in Indiana happening at the same time where the would-be assailants were met by an armed clerk. You guessed it – Bad guys didn’t want any, left the scene and the problem was resolved. But no, unintelligible screeching about Port Arthur is apparently superior in the debate when it comes to self-defence in Australia. Reeeeee!
As we’ve written about before, Australia needs a serious conversation on self-defence. As we’ve also written about before, Andrews has brought this entirely on his own state and his Police Minister Lisa Neville is just as guilty but both are completely unaccountable. And while social media generally isn’t the most accurate of representations it was encouraging to see that the populace are starting to come around:
We generally don’t like making predictions but we hope that this one does come to fruition: Daniel Andrews is going to get destroyed at the state election next year. You heard it here first.
And if not, I’ll be voting for this tradie, the other Servo Tradie or Mike Nolan for Premier.
