Violent crime spree #565604587048 over for the time being in Australia’s most progressive utopia:
“All six youths suspected of a violent two-night home invasion and car theft crime spree across Melbourne have been arrested.
Police on Thursday morning confirmed they were not looking for anyone else after a mob of youths allegedly smashed into homes with knives and poles, assaulted families, terrified elderly residents and carjacked a young mother and her baby.
In a rare move, police earlier released the names and photos of two 17-year-olds after the Children’s Court gave approval to identify them to help the manhunt.The court order was revoked on Thursday morning when the teenagers were arrested. A stolen Honda HRV station wagon has also been found.
The two 17-year-olds in custody takes the total number of those arrested to six.”
Too late, crimes have been committed by repeat offenders.
But it wasn’t gang crime.
All it needs now are the usual lip service statements and fake promises from Daniel Andrews about “getting tough on crime” and “more Police” while not actually doing anything tangible to solve it.
What will really grind your gears however, is this account from one of the victims:
Anyone from Victoria Police or the anti-gun crowd want to jump in here and tell us what being a victim achieved? This family’s life will never be the same, but that doesn’t matter because it hasn’t happened to you.
This is also just days after Victoria Police made outlandish statements blaming all men for the murder of Courtney Herron, because it is easier for them to do that than admit they can’t protect the public and have lost control. Pathetic, but not really news anymore.
Sounding like a broken record here, but what is an Australian citizen supposed to do? The federal government voted against the public carrying pepper spray, the Victorian government voted against the public carrying pepper spray and Victoria Police are telling the public to “just be compliant” during violent crime.
To be brutally honest, it’s really not worth calling the Police anymore.
Those calling for “tougher laws” need to re-examine their position. Tougher laws, while in theory ok after the fact, do nothing for the intended victims during the fact of a violent crime encounter and you’re then purely relying on the Police and the courts to actually follow through. How many examples of those failures do you need?
In other words, you’re willing to trade your ability to prevent or respond to an imminent physical threat, in the chance that the offenders are caught, prosecuted and given a decent sentence. If you’re willing to risk psychological, physical injury or death to yourself or family members on that gamble and live with the consequences then you go right ahead. However, you have absolutely no business denying others who are willing to protect themselves and their families purely because you don’t want the responsibility, and quite frankly, often don’t have the courage to do so.
That’s what the self-defence debate is really about: self-responsibility. Many Australians scream for “muh tougher laws” but actively oppose self-defence items being deregulated. In other words, they want someone else to deal with it and wear the risk.
It’s often a cop out argument. Straya mate, we’re different.
And for those people saying “don’t blame the Police”: these are the same Police who actively lobby against your right to protect yourselves with self-defence items while using the same to protect themselves, will often charge you for protecting yourself and then tell you to “just be compliant” during a home invasion or violent crime encounter. Or they’ll accuse you of being a “vigilante”, as if protecting yourself and your family when the state has failed is some evil lawless pursuit, when in reality it’s a deliberate conflation to derail the self-defence debate.
Think about that before you start mindlessly praising public servants, as seems to be Australian custom.
If Police want to swallow their pride and start encouraging the public to protect themselves where reasonable to do so, instead of being patronising hypocrites on self-defence, we would absolutely welcome that. Right now though, they and their culture are just as much part of the problem as the judicial system, Daniel Andrews, Australia’s mass immigration program and the rest of the factors contributing to this problem. And this is only going to get worse as Victoria’s economy deteriorates.
If you have time, this is well worth a watch:
Making good people helpless will not make bad people harmless, no matter what comforting lies you tell yourself.
To do nothing when a gang is invading your home is just a stupid idea
Daniel Andrews needs to be the subject of a govt enquiry as to his motives
He has armed guards and the protection of politics
Our judicial systemn needs a giant shake up
The present crop of judges are out of touck with current Australian values and the wants of the Australian people .
What we need is the immediate introduction of CASTLE DOCTRINE this would give all Australians the rite to defend themselves WHILST IN THEIR HOME AND CAR
To protect their families .
This might make the criminals think twice about home invasions at least.
Daniel Andrews should face court action for allowing the immigration of so many individuals into a city where there are neither jobs or housing to cater for them
ALL VICTORIANS must be able to rely on their leaders to look after them and provide a safe living environment.
Daniel Andrews has to be held to account if any of my family die or are injured as a result of his decisions i will definatly seek court action
totally agree. Andrews has to go. Impeach him for incompetency.
I think its time for a Class Action Lawsuit to be brought against the government and the police force for allowing the endangerment of innocent public and the communities to continue and any victims should file for the same. it is time for a tough stance on crime!!!
Glad I do not live in Victoria, Daniel Andrews wants everyone to believe they are safe, in NSW all we see and hear is African youth bashing intimidating and running rampant, driving business broke terrifying people on the street? My family and friends will not be visiting Victoria until Daniel Andrews is voted out or he stands up like a man and demands deportation of these criminals and their anti social behaviours. It is alleged that the safe school program is a disgusting breeding ground for pedofiles and other exploiters of children, is that true as this allergation is never ending?
And look at New South Wales police this morning. Already caught those African gangs in Sydney who have been imitating their filthy Melbourne colleagues in crime, but New South Wales police have smashed their car windows, drag the little bastards out,
drag them out of their houses and take them off to jail!
Go our NSW boys in blue!
Give these pieces of shit to Peter Dutton, and their families!
Send them back to their piece of desert
Wow. I wonder when the government is finally going to realise that the laws of 1996 have reached their use by date? I guarantee this wouldn’t happen in America as there probably is an AR-15 and a couple of shotguns staring at you from the moment you walk in the door. If this happened to me id be ringing up the registry the next day for a gun, or moving to somewhere where self defence is not illegal. America has the idea.
This infuriates me the most.
Well Victoria, how’s your Daniel “Brains” Anderson experiment working out for you?
Great article, tells it like it is but if you think for a moment that you won’t be fronting a Victorian social engineering judge if you use lethal force defending yourself and your family, think again.
You’ll be ruined financially and mentally. Dragged through the courts and possibly do gaol time.
You like me may think in the end, we’re alive they aren’t and feel rightly justified.
The first priority of government is the safety of its people . Victoria has failed spectacularly in providing it.
Does anyone know where to find the stats for violent crime especially home invasions as they relate to wealthy left-voting areas of Melbourne?
Accuse me of having a suspicious mind if you like, but it’s almost as if crime gangs know it’s not in their interests to “work” in certain suburbs you’d think would be ideal because of rich pickings and people uninterested in defending themselves.
Every Australian should be outraged about the attitude of Dan Andrews and his Police Commissioner.What would the outcome be if the children and families of these two were attacked and threatened with knives and iron bars. What if these thugs struck tomorrow or sometime this week.
Would their attitude change?
Fraser Anning copped a drilling from Politicians because he attended the St Kilda protest in sopport of victims, victims Daniel Andrews refused to acknowledge when denying there was a problem with African Gang Violence and other cultural conflicts taking place. Soon afterwards the MPs offices were getting a security upgrade and 800 Victorian police officers were issued with semi automatic machine guns. It says a lot about a government willing to let those his job position is to Supposively to represent. Protesting anything else but the safety from violent attacks is completely OK these days? Wtf is in the water down that way?
This happening now in Melbourne is what we wanted to get away from in South Africa. It opens so many wounds and fears. When we first moved to Australia I realised I was sleeping properly for the first time in about 20 years, before then we slept half awake to always be aware of intrudors breaking in, we even had emergency plans with our children so they would know where to hide or find a way to escape. Living in fear is no proper life.
We also thought we could protect ourselves with our guns (licensed) but in the end you would be killed for them, the thugs (always Africans) came to get hold of your weapons, a priority item for them, therafter came money or a vehicle. So having guns will put yourselves in greater danger.
The Justice system here should be adjusted first to support the efforts of the Police and should do more to protect law abiding citizens. From all the posts and news I read, Police is doing their job very well, it is at the courts where it fails. Running a set of outdated laws which do not cater for the demographic will put Austrians at great and unnecessary risk. Please, please change the laws!!
It is time to set a dam good example of serious consequences for these thugs. Australia should only deport one criminal with his family, and you will see how quickly this nonsense will stop.
And you still keep your useless Government
Who do nothing to get the shit out of the country SHAME SHAME
People who has elected this beast Govenment should be accountable for this first . We should charged Andrews and his government for everything what’s going on in Victoria now . Judges are responsible for this as well . No jail for those thugs no bail deportation only with all families . Australia and Victoria has to stop sleeping a started to fight for the country and normal safe life .
This fucking pathetic
All the while the left claim diversity is out strength while importing people from places with no functioning governments, no morality, no empathy, and no reason to integrate into society
An Investiagtion of the Victorian police should be taken
highly intelligent individual.
There URGENTLY needs to be a complete ROYAL COMMISSION into DANIEL ANDREWS, the Police and the Magistrates/ Judges, there also needs to be SERIOUS consequences to SERIOUS crimes with the first option of DEPORTING not just the punk crim but there ENTIRE CLAN!!!
enter my home uninvited , threaten me or my wife , you WILL leave , in an ambulance , I dont give a shit what the ‘police’ say
Yes mate same as me i will show no mercy STUFF THE LAW my home my rights i am sure there would be a show of force if any did serious near death harm
No gang poroblem, bah yeah right, it’s Australia wide not just Melbourne .. and most Africans causing it, stop protecting these people… deport them back to Africa or lock them up long term!!! If not allow Australians to feel safe enough to protect themselves in their homes the way America does!!!
The goverment both state and federal should be charged with neglecting their duty of care for the people of Australia by importing these thugs onto our country what needs to happen is for those in government to experience the terror and harm the people of Australia are having to put up with then maybe something would be done
John Howard wil be turning in his grave!
John Howard will be turning in his grave! Shame !
No such luck, he’s still breathing
The police and government theoretically work for you. They are supposed to derive their power and authority from you when you consent to be governed. If they don’t follow your consent, fire them, impeach them, prosecute and sentence them. You have the right to self defense.
Is John Howard deceased?
Dopey Dan and his Keystone Cops have turned Victoria into the world’s shithole, geographically and literally
Face up to it, crime in Victoria is on the up and will only get worse. Why, because we have allowed the Do Gooders and so called Civil Rights Groups to highjack the debate to such an extent that no politician, State of Federal, Labor or Liberal, have got the guts to do anything about it, and the courts are just as bloody useless.
You want proof, it’s staring you in the face everyday. People are arrested for violent crimes and get off because they were drunk or on drugs at the time of the crime, and a raft of other sickening excuses put forward by defence councils for which he judges agree to.
Want more proof, ‘Headline – Victorian politicians vow to crack down on ‘disgusting’ attacks after another paramedic assaulted’. That was the headline in May 2018 and what happened to the law that says anyone who attacks a paramedic or other public worker would get jail straight away. Tell me, how many incidents and how many jailed?
It has come to pass that the victim of a violent crime has become the aggressor and the criminal is now seen as the aggrieved party. There is much more I would like to say on the subject but I’m too angry to continue.
So how is the Andrews government going for you Lefty voters now, Just remember that whilst Andrews watched his father die a slow death from cancer he hatched a plan for Victoria to be the first state to allow euthanasia, so all we have to do is wait for him to be the victim of one of these ” non gang type house invasions” for him to do anything about it. I do not want to be disrespectful of Andrews father but the point needed to be made.
Ignorance. The country has a major problem its called inequality. Once your a public servant your on a good wicket. They are not short of them. How easy it is to scapegoat other nations immigrants who cant get passed the equality, I’m sure there are plenty of Aust who equally commit break and entering. Getting “rid” of the scapegoats wont change a system that needs to change. That needs production innovation technology etc. Some of the “immigrants” no doubt paid visa and entry requirements for a “better life before coming here”, another major problem. South Africa had aparthied for years, their mantra a power trip “white is better than black” when they rebelled a lot of white south africans came to Aust. They were welcomed why they brought their money with them. They fit in remarkably well.
