Most liveable city is most liveable:
“A gunman is on the loose after a man was shot and injured in what police suspect was a failed hit in Melbourne’s south-east.
The Hampton Park attack which occurred in Fulham Close about 9.30am on Tuesday is the latest in a string of fatal shootings across Melbourne.
Senior police sources have said homicide squad and anti-bikie Taskforce Echo resources have been strained in recent weeks following the spate of deaths.”
after another shooting last Friday:
“Just days ago, Daniel ‘Dodge’ O’Shea was killed at Fawkner Park in South Yarra – his was the eighth fatal shooting in Melbourne in eight weeks. Charges have been laid in only three of the six attacks, leaving police on the hunt for multiple gunmen.”
It’s ‘reassuring’ that the Police have only laid charges in half of them, but they’re overwhelmed with crime as it is and law and order in Victoria has descended into a farce.
These shootings are ok though according to The Age because they are ‘targeted’, so breathe a sigh of relief all you innocent bystanders and victims of crime.
The real question is, what gun laws do they have sitting in the background waiting to go? If we remember Dan Andrews’ statement a few weeks ago after the Love Machine incident and then the subsequent statement by a Labour staffer on Twitter, then it’s not a stretch at all to believe there is some more political opportunism on the horizon.
Remember, there’s no such thing as ‘knee jerk’ gun laws.
