Gang War Australia by John Steele
Melbourne’s crime wave continues. On October 25, 2016, three men “described as being of African appearance,” robbed a Toorak jewellery store. They were armed with a machete, a hammer and a gun. (The Australian, October 26, 2016, p. 3) This article says: “Youths of African heritage are being blamed for a series of violent crimes in recent months across the city, particularly break-and-enter offences and car hijackings.” (as above) The co-owner of the jewellery shop said the police are “frustrated because similar crimes were happening regularly.”
Then there was the assassination of Hamad Assaad, a “known player among Sydney’s loose network of Middle Eastern crime gangs.” (as above) Police predict further gangland killings.
So, how did Australia end up becoming just like America? Wasn’t the 1996 banning of guns supposed to make us “safe”? Instead, the country is awash in illegal guns, in the hands of the gangs. John Howard, got anything to say on this?
