The hunters are becoming the hunted in a shocking new escalation of Townsville’s youth crime crisis, Katter’s Australian Party Hinchinbrook (KAP) MP Nick Dametto has said.
Mr Dametto said reports of youth offenders pursuing, ramming and throwing bricks at police cars overnight had sickened him.
He said due to the Queensland Police Service’s strict anti-pursuit policy, it was likely the targeted officers had no choice but to retreat and leave the kid crims to continue on their rampage.
It was a shocking state of affairs that was causing community anger to boil over and vigilantism to fester, Mr Dametto warned.
“This would have to be a world first – a situation where 12 and 13 year old kids have so little respect, or fear, of the law that they are actually comfortable hunting down police officers,” he said.
“Someone is going to die, or be severely hurt, unless drastic actions are taken.
“I don’t want to see that in this community – not again.
“The current youth justice system, and the Palaszczuk Labor Government that has presided over this mess for the last six years, must accept responsibility.
“Stop it with the dodgy statistics and the tokenistic press conferences – people are not going to tolerate this for much longer.”
Mr Dametto said with Cleveland Detention Centre at capacity and its rotational door set-up repeatedly failing to deter recidivist offenders, the situation in the North was desperate.
He, on behalf of the KAP, called urgently for:
- Relocation Sentencing to be trialled as an alternative to detention for recidivist youth offenders
- An innovative strategy that allows for the effective pursuit and disabling of stolen vehicles and ensures public and officer safety.
“Just waiting for these kids to get bored with their games or run out of fuel is not an effective response to these kinds of situations,” Mr Dametto said.
Covid PCR tests to be withdrawn from use because of inaccuracy but Cairns will be shut down after a probable false positive
Cairns residents are mugs if they cop another lockdown supposedly due to a ‘mysterious’ Covid infection of a taxi driver which had been detected by the totally discredited PCR test.
The Labor Party is hell bent on dismembering small business in Cairns in deference to Coles, Woolworths, KMart, McDonalds and the other transnational stores.
Will they close? No because they contribute large amounts to the ALP and LNP election war chests.
The Covid PCR tests manufactured by the US company CDC (Centre for Disease Control), state on the directions:
“Positive [test] results are indicative of active infection with 2019-nCoV but do not rule out bacterial infection or co-infection with other viruses. The agent detected may not be the definite cause of disease. Laboratories within the United States and its territories are required to report all positive results to the appropriate public health authorities.”
In fact CDC has copped so much flak over its unreliable test that the company has decided to withdraw the test kit from the market after killing the world economy.
(Natural News) After more than a year of committing scientific fraud to push false “positives” via PCR testing, the CDC has announced it is withdrawing the RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel on December 31st of this year:
“After December 31, 2021, CDC will withdraw the request to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of the CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel, the assay first introduced in February 2020 for detection of SARS-CoV-2 only. CDC is providing this advance notice for clinical laboratories to have adequate time to select and implement one of the many FDA-authorized alternatives.“
Queensland and NSW Health Departments have stated they use the PCR test at 40 cycles when it was designed to detect SARS 2 Covid at only 25 cycles. Hence the large number of false positives occurring in Queensland and is without doubt the case of the Cairns taxi driver said to have tested positive, causing the shutdown.
A Portuguese appeals court has ruled that PCR tests are unreliable and that it is unlawful to quarantine people based solely on a PCR test.
The court stated, the test’s reliability depends on the number of cycles used and the viral load present. Citing Jaafar et al. 2020, the court concludes that:
“if someone is tested by PCR as positive when a threshold of 35 cycles or higher is used (as is the rule in most laboratories in Europe and the US), the probability that said person is infected is less than 3%, and the probability that said result is a false positive is 97%.”
Similarly, the Austrian court has ruled that PCR tests are not suitable for COVID-19 diagnosis and that lockdowns has no legal or scientific basis.
The court pointed out that “a PCR test is not suitable for diagnosis and therefore does not in itself say anything about the disease or infection of a person”.
A false test result has enabled Queensland Chief Health Officer Jeanette Young and Labor Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk to close down Cairns from 4pm today for three days.
Furthermore vaccinated victims have been found to test positive and begin viral shedding soon after the jab, infecting others in close proximity.
The Cairns economy has been reeling from a loss of international tourists on which it is heavily reliant. Many small businesses have closed, most of them permanently and the remaining small business cannot afford another lock down.
Cairns has three Labor state members. Make them feel the heat and if residents wear dangerous masks, get mRNA jabs, aid people tracking and lock themselves in their homes they deserve all they will get over the next 12 months, provided they remain alive after their jab.

A retired engineer who worked on the construction of the Barron River bridge in 1962 said the concrete
structure had outlived its useful life which has been known by the State Government for more than four years.
Due to potential catastrophic failure, the downgraded weight limit now at 50.5 tonnes would soon have to be lowered again because the bridge is in the final days of its life. It has been estimated the cost of a new bridge could be up $500M.
The engineer, who wished to remain anonymous said when the bridge was built 58 years ago there was no comprehension it would be carrying the large volume of heavy loads at the speed of modern trucks today.
“The life of the bridge was supposed to be 100 years but it takes one third of its life for the concrete to cure, another third for maximum carrying capacity and in the final third it starts to deteriorate,” he said.
X-rays taken in 2016 indicated each pier had a multitude of fine cracks which could be repaired by external application or drilling holes in the structure and pressure-filling them with a low viscosity, two-pack epoxy bond.
To start this treatment first each pier has to be X-rayed which takes at least six weeks then six months to inject the epoxy into each one.
Drilling could weaken the pier structure therefore it had to be done one by one or the integrity of the entire bridge could be affected.
But the downside to this remedy is that the concrete in the pier becomes rock hard and loses flexibility which is required for heavy, moving vehicles.
It is vibrations that cause cracks so the weight and speed limits would have to be lowered significantly to reduce this movement, he explained.
“Vibrations from speeding vehicles over previous years have created the fractures in the concrete which were discovered in 2016 and the next report will probably show it is in worse condition,” he said.
In 2019 the Main Roads Department awarded multi-million dollar tenders for the repair of four concrete bridges on the Mulligan Highway between Mount Carbine and Lakeland because of similar deterioration.
These repairs took nearly 12 months to be carried out. The Barron River bridge could take two and one half years to fix.
Meanwhile a much-publicised alternative road, the Bridle Track, to Cairns from the Tablelands which bypasses the dangerous Kuranda Range Road and the Barron Bridge is being ignored by local Labor Members of Parliament, Craig Crawford and Cynthia Lui who have known about the poor state of the bridge for some time, certainly before the October state election when it was not ever mentioned.
All northern Labor politicians have studiously ignored the problem. Crawford’s thought bubble solution to the accident-prone Kuranda Range Road was to put all travelers into driverless cars and trucks.
After all Crawford and Lui represent the Labor Party, not the people.
