Absolutely abhorrent crime out of Perth:
“A man has been charged with the sexual assault of a young girl after a terrifying break-in in Perth’s southern suburbs.
It is alleged the 29-year-old man broke into the victim’s home on Saturday morning and sexually assaulted her before being confronted by a family member and held until police arrived. Sex Assault Squad detectives say the girl is aged under 13-years-old.
The man was believed to have been staying temporarily at a neighbour’s house.
He has been charged with two counts of aggravated sexual penetration of a child under 13, attempted sexual penetration of a child under 13, three counts of aggravated indecent dealing of a child under 13, aggravated burglary and threaten to kill.
He was refused bail and is due to appear in the Perth Magistrates Court today.”
This girl’s life is now sadly ruined. So much for calling the Police.
That’s all the details so far.
This is the latest in a string of home defence cases this week. Meanwhile, in the NT Mick Denigan was acquitted for shooting an axe-wielding home invader and a Sydney man took out a home invader in his living room in defence of his family, without (so far) being charged.
In his final week in the Australian Senate, Liberal Democrats’ Senator David Leyonhjelm attempted to ease import restrictions on non-lethal self-defence items such as pepper spray and tasers:
As you can see it was voted down. Senator Fraser Anning did the same thing last year in the wake of the Eurydice Dixon murder and got the same result:
Note that each time, 19 or more female Senators voted against this motion. So much for gender equality and respect for women – it’s nothing more than a virtue signalling wank by a polity showing increasing contempt for the Australian populace.
Shooters, Fishers and Farmers MLC Jeff Bourman attempted to launch an inquiry into self-defence in Victoria, but was rebuked in the past week:
Liberal Democrats’ MLC Aaron Stonehouse is doing his best to get the currently legally ambiguous use and carriage of pepper spray over the line in WA:
Liberal Democrats’ MLC Tim Quilty also made the point very clear in Victoria this week:
How many more examples do we really need? Australia is arse backwards on self-defence. The Police can’t protect you and then often will charge you for exercising the right to self-defence in your own home, the public is unarmed, criminals know they have the upper hand in terms of force and a weak-as-piss justice system and can act with essential impunity – so what are your options? Essentially be a victim or be a victim.
It needs to be said again, the legal right to self-defence is absolutely useless without access to the legal means and that includes non-lethal options and legally owned firearms to those who qualify.
As has been previously discussed, the Castle Doctrine needs to be the standard when dealing with home invasions. Law-abiding people being unnecessarily dragged through the courts for protecting themselves and their families in clear circumstances, at great financial and emotional expense, does nothing more than generate more victims.
Australians are encouraged and, in many cases, legally compelled, to make preparations for medical emergencies, bushfires, floods and cyclones and other events that may threaten their safety. If you make preparations for a home invasion or self-defence however, you can end up in gaol.
The time for the Castle Doctrine is now.
