strange you say that because the victorian crime statistics show crime to have actually gone down 4% last year and have been the lowest for 10 years ?? so something doesnt add up .... i would say the greatest influence to crime rate in Australia is the rise of the ice epedemic with petty crime to get cash for a hit going up ... if Crime is the real concern then we maybe need to not look so hard at the low hanging fruit of the scary black man but maybe take a crack at the drug dealers and manufacturers ??
The crimes that concern me the most, in the area's close to where i live, are the crimes where a group of people have kicked in the doors of homes while the occupants are in them. Bashing them and taking keys then cars. Random innocent targets ( as opposed to crime associates or similar ).
I would put it forward that this type of crime was pretty rare a few years back. I AM old enough to know it was.
The nature of the crime means that there is a description of the attackers.
The description is NOT an Irish guy who has been here since he was born.
Apparently i sound like a middle aged angry white man.
Some biased opinions and bigotry are clearly tolerated on this thread while using the same card back on others who have a differing opinion.
Its quite common in places overseas that the middle and upper class live in gated communities or secure apartments while the rest are left to rough it. That doesn't mean its a good thing and we should aspire to it.
