PNG cocaine bust: Italian police say Mafia so entrenched in Australian politics and business it is impossible to stamp out

PNG cocaine bust: Australia is a “state of Italy”

Italian police have now classed the mafia in Australia as so entrenched, they believe it would be impossible to stamp out completely with Australian police only able to make busts where they can.

ITALIAN police have carried out a series of raids to smash a Mafia-led operation to smuggle cocaine to Australia that police say godfathers have now divided into six zones for trafficking drugs, extortion and money laundering.

And such is the entrenchment of Mafia links to Australia now, authorities say the country is virtually a state of Italy and it would be impossible to ever wipe out.

Authorities have uncovered a treasure trove of intelligence related to the fearsome Calabrian-based ’ Ndrangheta mafia group and their operations in Australia including members’ infiltration of key areas to assist in their trade, including transport and politics.

The police operation last week with raids on more than a dozen homes in Calabria has seen 14 members of clans linked to ’Ndrangheta arrested and charged with “criminal association linked to international drugs tracking”, namely to Australia and Canada.

One of eight refused bail is a police officer tasked with protection of a port but instead was allegedly providing guidance on evading controls and security for drug shipments.

Leading Melbourne mafia figure Rocco Arico was jailed in 2017 for drugs, extortion and weapons offences

The case was the culmination of five years of work by the Central Operational Service of the Italian National Police, a specialist Italian police squad from Calabria and the district’s Anti-Mafia Prosecutor’s Office.

Despite the success of arrests and uncovering intelligence on international operations through extensive listening devices, taps and surveillance, it may not assist the overall ’Ndrangheta crime fight in      Australia.

Italian police have now classed the mafia in Australia as so entrenched, they believe it would be impossible to stamp out completely with Australian police only able to make busts where they can.

“Australia is not a target nation any more, it’s now like a state of Italy from a criminal perspective,” a senior Italian officer, speaking on condition of anonymity, told News Corp Australia.

“They are entrenched in their activities and have been for a long time. They have not got an expansion strategy with your country any more, it’s not expansion, it’s consolidation. Australia, Canada, Belgium, United States, Germany are all countries where these crimes are being consolidated.”

’Ndrangheta work as “strictly a family-based enterprise, affiliation having to be through blood relation”.

According to evidence gathered by authorities, the group had designated six “locales” in Australia for Calabrian-linked mafia, not necessarily by state but by powerbase for extended family support and drug importation markets as well as large-scale construction contracts, paying of backhanders and racketeering. Each locale has its own mob boss that reports directly to Italy

Former WA mayor faces accusations he led mafia cell

Court documents from ongoing proceedings in Italy also show Italian prosecutors allege Tony Vallelonga, who is the former mayor of Stirling in Perth, is the local leader of a mafia cell in Perth.

Court files allege that Mr Vallelonga is responsible for “making the most important decisions, imparting orders or imposing sanctions on other subordinate associates”.

The files allege Mr Vallelonga was concerned about a rival who wanted to start his own cell on Mr Vallelonga’s turf with the approval of Calabrian bosses.

Mr Vallelonga was allegedly recorded in an Italian laundromat recounting a conversation with his competitor where he allegedly said: “As long as I’m alive, you don’t get a locale [local mafia cell] … and that’s that!”

To which his rival responded: “You can’t be the man any more … enough!”

It comes after the prosecutors sought to question Mr Vallelonga over his dealings in Calabria with a notorious mafia boss.

Mr Valleonga has always denied the allegations and in a statement sent to the ABC, Mr Vallelonga’s lawyer said any allegation the former mayor had ever been involved in criminal activity was “completely without any foundation”.

Outside of the political arena, Italian police have identified another Australian allegedly working in Calabria who is part of the influential Alvaro family.

Some members of the family were recently subjects of an international anti-mafia operation when authorities seized tonnes of cocaine and made dozens of arrests.

Confidential Italian and Australian police files state that the Alvaro clan has arms in Australia.

They are allegedly headed by Adelaide construction figure Paul Alvaro, 64, and a New South Wales man.

The pair are among figures around the country, including in Griffith, New South Wales.

A police assessment said the individuals operate as “an executive board of directors” for the Calabrian Mafia.

Spot the real blackfellas among the Greens

by Jim O’Toole, Townsville Bureau

Real Aborigines boycotted the so-called ‘black lives matter’ gathering in Cairns and most other centres around the country at the weekend.

Up to 1500 people, many of whom posing as blackfellas lined the streets of Cairns protesting black deaths in custody, a perpetual cause for mainly white agitators trying to jump onboard the annual taxpayer-funded, $30 billion blackfella gravy train.

These staged demonstrations across the nation had nothing to do with an American negro unfortunately killed by a Minnesota police officer then broadcast around the world.

Black lives don’t matter to the Cairns Greens demonstrators desperately trying to jump onboard the blackfella gravy train

The American demonstrations have been created and supported by the Democrat Marxists Bernie Sanders and ‘creepy’ Joe Biden, surreptitiously bankrolled by billionaire international money dealer and malcontent George Soros.

Why don’t these rent-a-crowd mobs across the nation jump onto the white bandwagon? Most of them are more white than black. Is it because a succession of Labor State governments has for years spoilt two generations of pseudo-Aborigines by delivering on every demand of the core, urbane agitators?

The real Aborigines of the NT, Cape York and the Gulf are decent members of their communities and do not partake in such subversion.

Cairnsnews is well aware the elders of the 13 communities on Cape York do not support these rabid protestors, many of whom are wet-behind-the-ears, Green, James Cook University students revolting and letting off steam after being cooped up during the Coronahoax lock-ups.

Meyne Wyatt, a racist bigot who set back the reconciliation process many years after a racist rage on socialist Q&A ABC TV

Many of the protestors acted like cattle dogs after being let off the Coronavirus chain-letting off steam by running frantically around the paddock and urinating on every tree, snapping at falling leaves.

What these idiots are achieving is further division between the white population and genuine blackfellas who should be assisted by the state. Their weekend protests have been a great, retrogressive step, trashing any hope of furthering the reconciliation process.

This Greens mob in Sydney has not helped further the reconciliation process-Pic ABC

Many of these antagonistic protestors, in our experience are not capable of holding a job, and when the double-dole payments stop in July they might reflect on how their stupidity has harmed the real people of the remote communities who actually do need help.

One thing for sure – city pubs and bottle shops will think their throats have been cut when the double-dole dries up.

Any of our readers watching the ABC Q & A television program tonight would be reviled by the outward hostility and racist attitudes of a couple of alleged indigenous activists appearing on the panel, in particular one named Meyne Wyatt.

Government announces massive facial recognition ID scheme immediately after Brighton shooting scam

First published on Cairnsnews June 9, 2017

The Federal Government will soon finalise the complete and ultimate facial recognition records for all Australian citizens.

And Pauline Hanson wants a national ID Card?

A national data base of passport, driver, gun owner and high risk equipment operator licence photos will be kept for access by just whom remains unknown.

Big brother is watching your every move

Federal and State police, immigration officers and Border Force will have access, but it seems more clandestine bodies will get their hands on your complete identity.

ASIO, ASIS and reciprocal overseas spy agencies could also have access to all of your personal data.

It should be noted that Australia has arrangements with some rather dubious nations for exchanging the personal information of all our citizens.

CCTV footage as depicted in US television shows such as NCIS Los Angeles will end up in captured data as supposedly trained facial recognition experts scan your face while you browse the shopping mall, fuel your car at the service station or sit on a park bench.

Highly sophisticated infa-red cameras in police cars record your every move online

Queensland Traffic Police and their contractors have had this technology for three years, photographing you in your car every time you pass a highway patrol vehicle or stationary camera car, storing your image and that of passengers, vehicle description, direction, time and date of travel.

The police cars have infa-red ability and can photograph the driver and all passengers in the car as you pass. By then your number plate will have been read by the on-board computer and sent online to the huge data bank in Roma Street Police HQ and another massive data bank held by the Main Roads Department.

Every occupant of your car can be photographed by patrol cars and recorded online with the Face Identification Service

Soon after the facial images of the car occupants will be sent to the national Face Identification Service.

Nearly 80 per cent of people over 16 hold a drivers licence and 55 per cent have a passport. More than 600,000 citizens have a photographic gun licence in Queensland.

Justice Minister Michael Keenan told News Corp that passport photos would be accessed in the coming months and drivers licences would be tapped into after ongoing discussions with the states were finalised.

The Face Identification Service will match a photo of an unknown person against multiple government records to help establish their identity.

“These biometric services will change the face of crime fighting in Australia,” Mr Keenan, a Liberal, said.

The final piece of the identity jigsaw is about to come into place. Tasmania MP Andrew Wilkie has warned Australia will become the police state, test case for the final solution.

 

UK, Australia and global lawful rebellion against treason and sedition coming soon

Bookmark June 22, 2020 as the day the citizens of 52 Commonwealth countries take back control of their destiny. Form a group and co-ordinate with the UK. No more unlawful government. Government belongs to the people not sheeple.

So far in Australia there are allegedly 5.8 million certifiable  sheeple who loaded a laughable phone tracing app; that leaves 19 million thinkers who could be a fighting force. Are you one of them?

Lies, damn lies and statistics

Editorial

The true extent of fatalities due the Covid 19 flu virus will never be known. Obfuscation by nation states, the medical profession and the False News media is overwhelming the outbreak of the virus which has a lower death rate than the common flu..

While we have published the accurate death statistics from Italy the false news media continues on blithely with its distortion under direction of the Deep State.

An Italian Government Scientist has asked the media to report the true fatality rates caused by Covid 19. He said 88 per cent died with the flu and just 12 per cent died from the flu.

 

 

 

Most readers know the real agenda here is to hold as many people indoors for as long as possible while the economy is trashed in a manner not seen since the great depression of the 1930’s.

Prime Minister Morrison, a banker’s man, has already heralded the era of the Deep State’s cashless society by introducing the Currency (Restrictions on the Use of Cash) Bill 2019.

If a vaccine is ever developed, as some researchers claim, it will be laced with microscopic radio receptors which will leave you with the ‘mark of the beast’ for life.

No injected transmitter – no money, no commerce, no job,  no pharmaceuticals, no medical attention, no public utilities, no guns, no vehicle registration and your social credit score as determined by thousands of Telstra 5G spy cameras in every street shooting facial recognition images back to the politburo for analysis, will ensure your life is hell on Earth.

Checking travel permits at a checkpoint

Show dissent and you will end up in a re-training facility in the country sitting on once exceptional agricultural land.

Your only income, similar to the majority of the jobless, working and retired population will be dependent upon the ‘government’. Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese are scrambling over each other to enact draconian laws which strip every vestige of a free society from every person in Australia.

Any overt dissent will be controlled by United Nations troops and the battle conditioned para-military police in every state. I have extreme doubt the Australian military, bar a few MK Ultra nutcases, will fire on their families and friends.

We have been told Queensland Police have armed themselves with high quality metal detectors and automatic military rifles looking for buried weapons. Already we have Stasi-modelled, military checkpoints around the states doing ID checks, demanding travel permits and searching vehicles. Fortunately so far they have reported few finds.

Without doubt other states and the Federal Police will have followed suit.

My military background helped me put together over 20 years this NWO planned takeover agenda which is now unfolding. Unfortunately city people have been conditioned by a generation of television and computers to think the government is here to help them.

God help Australia!

Police download the contents of your phone while you wait at the lights

Queensland Police could be using Stingray phone interceptors to unlawfully download the contents of your smart phone.

It is a common practice with American police to pull up beside a car at the lights and download your phone without you knowing it.

Stingray phone interceptor device popular with American cops

A motorist reported that she was traveling on the Mulligan Highway near Cooktown when she was intercepted by a police car which had been attending the Aurukun riots.(Aboriginal community)

The motorist tried to download messages when she got to her destination not long after the police intercept.  She said her phone had been working perfectly before she was stopped.

“The phone went beserk, throwing up messages, the screen was jumping all over the place so I tried to turn it off, but couldn’t do that either,” she told Cairnsnews.

“After playing with the phone I managed to turn it off for about an hour then when I turned it back on it did the same thing. I let it go flat and charged it overnight and today it seems to be OK.”

The motorist said a passenger in the car had the same problem and had to leave it switched off all night while on the charger.  She said this phone now seemed to work properly after receiving a call from the passenger complaining about the same problem.

A technician said the phones had displayed symptoms of being externally downloaded.

What happened to Biblical government?

by Brent Melville

With government and elections on many people’s minds this week, is it possible for epistles written two millennia ago to be relevant to this topic today?

It’s not hard to find discussion somewhere on the topic of “biblical government” as referenced by St Paul in his letter to the Romans and his often controversial statement in 13:1: “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.”

Solicitors advise you have certain enshrined rights if pulled over by police.

People reading this immediately think “what about Hitler? What about Stalin? What about ….”

I think what Paul is driving at here is the broad issue of government authority and those who administer the law, not popularly elected parties or national leaders, or despots. St Paul goes on to explain: “For the one in authority is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for rulers do not bear the sword for no reason. They are God’s servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer.”

God gave flawed mankind law and authorities in order to provide peace, security and justice for communities. Of course our human systems of government often do not work and are prone to corruption.

Many are aware of issues around our corporate state structure and will argue with cops on the side of the road about these profound issues.
Mostly it’s better to give the cop a break i.e. take the apostle’s big-picture advice and “submit to the authorities”. Pull over, say gidday mate, what’s the problem? Remember: “Blessed are the peacemakers.”
It’s better to take the matters of law to court or just deal with them as the system provides.

Perth SWAT police storm home repossessing it for bank – owner dies in hospital

from Channel 9

A woman who was yesterday involved in a five-hour siege at a Perth property has died in hospital.

Perth SWAT police at it again, acting as debt collectors for the avaricious banks. This time one of the home owners,  Janice Croft, passed away in hospital. It has not yet been confirmed if she was hit by a ‘non-lethal’ bullet fired by police during a five hour siege. (what is a non-lethal bullet? Ed)

Officers were called to a home on Douglas Road in Martin, in the city’s south-east, about 9am yesterday following reports a couple in a home made threats after the sheriff’s office came knocking to repossess their home. 

WA Labor Police Minister Michelle Roberts should be conducting an independent inquiry into a possible police shooting of a bank repossession victim

Police fired a single non-lethal shot as the siege came to an end at about 2.30pm.

The home is owned by Rodney and Janice Croft, who were arrested by police.

Soon after, Mrs Croft was rushed to Royal Perth Hospital in cardiac arrest and in a critical condition. Her husband remains under police guard in hospital.

It’s not clear when she suffered the cardiac arrest or if she was hit by the non-lethal police round.

Mr Croft was the former Deputy Mayor of Gosnells but in recent years the couple had battled long running and costly legal troubles.

It is understood they owed close to a million dollars.

No charges have yet been laid. (Against the police? Ed)

 

If the right of self-protection means carrying a gun – so be it

 

Editorial

If women are left defenceless then they need self-protection. Pepper sprays, electric prods or handguns have been  used in the United States for decades with very few reports of misuse. Heavy penalties apply if misused.

Many centuries of Common law gives us the right of self-defence, but the corporate political parties have denied honest citizens to use force against force.

The political parties claim they own our children and they will protect them and naturally us the parents.  Nothing could be further from the truth.

Television news yesterday was awash with the funeral of the young girl, Aiiwa Maasarwe murdered in Melbourne by a young indigenous man. Could she have survived if she had some means of self-protection?

Probably because the conditions for self-carry are to have undertaken a rigid firearms handling course before getting a licence, but if it is widely known that women legally have a means of self-protection, such as a gun or mace then the attack most likely would not have occurred.

How many more women have to be murdered before the political party quislings take action?

 

 

 

 

Patsy Martin Bryant rots in jail while the Tasmanian Liberals promise to free-up gun laws

Author Keith Noble, of ‘Mass Murder; official killing in Tasmania’  has published the most complete record of the Port Arthur massacre scam available in the world today. Below Mr Noble gives an up-to-date analysis of the case.

In his witness statement given on 28APR1996, Peter David Crosswell (spelt Croswell in other places) states this in relation to the gunman who he saw up close in the Broad Arrow Café at the Port Arthur Historic Site: “I didn’t move but I could see his sandshoes across the floor.” Mr. Crosswell who was wounded in that café has the reputation of being a decent person – a truth teller, not a liar. He was one of several eyewitnesses who saw the gunman and who stated that person was not Martin Bryant. Note that the only eyewitness (James Clement Laycock) who personally knew Martin Bryant BEFORE the incident clearly states in his witness statement (10MAY1996) that the gunman he saw was not Martin Bryant.

Austrian author Keith Noble’s acclaimed work on the Port Arthur massacre which has left patsy Martin Bryant rotting in Tasmania’s Risdon jail.

The following is an extract from the book MASS MURDER: Official Killing in Tasmania, Australia (2nd edition; 2014; n.23, p.388): “At least two other witnesses have said the gunman was wearing a soft type of footwear commonly referred to as runners, trainers, or sandshoes. But it gets complicated when two facts are raised: i. The alleged gunman was said to have been wearing lace-up boots before the shooting on that Sunday (see Kessarios); and, ii. The alleged gunman was said to be wearing Blundstone-type* boots during the incident, at the tollbooth specifically. (see Rabe) So how could this be? If there was only one gunman, it means he must have put on three different types of footwear and one of those times must have been inside the yellow Volvo, between the parking lot and the tollbooth. Why? To create uncertainty perhaps. Or, were there two people the subject of these different footwear sightings? (* Quality boot made by Tasmanian company Blundstone which did not make runners/sandshoes/sneakers in and prior to 1996.)”

It is this type of evidence, given by many witnesses in their statements (see extracts in the book MASS MURDER), which confirms again and again that there is so much REASONABLE DOUBT associated with the case, that only unthinking sheeple, corrupt officials, and the complicit barristers (all of whom are officers of the court) in Tasmania say otherwise. And because there are so many truthful facts which disprove the allegations of the State, the innocent and retarded (IQ66) Martin Bryant was coerced and mentally tortured for over six months after which he repeated what the convicted criminal lawyer John Avery pressured him to say – then he was locked away FOREVER WITH NO TRIAL – repeat, FOREVER WITH NO TRIAL. Note that a hearing in a courthouse or anywhere else is not a trial. And also note that scum Avery was supposed to defend Martin Bryant. But all Avery did was pressure him relentlessly to repeat Avery’s plea of guilty. The truth is, Martin Bryant never had any ethical legal representation at any time and he was unable to engage another lawyer because the State had confiscated all his assets – his money and his home. That is what you are to accept as justice in Australia. The State accused innocent Martin Bryant of so much – yet, it was unwilling (and unable) to prove one single thing against him in a sound trial conducted by an ethical judge. Martin was the doomed PATSY.

There is no hard evidence proving Martin Bryant was the gunman or one of the gunmen. For example, not a single fingerprint was ever presented as proof of Martin Bryant’s involvement in the massacre. It is known with absolute certainty from the witness statements and from a police video that the gunman handled food-related things and a tray inside the café and that he left a video camera on a café table. All these things would have been covered with his fingerprints – obviously not Martin Bryant’s or we would have heard about them. The official narrative of the Port Arthur Massacre is grossly corrupt – in the Australian vernacular, it is complete bull! free pdf copies of the 694pp. book MASS MURDER: Official Killing in Tasmania, Australia (2nd edition 2014), of 20 YEARS CORRUPTION, DECEPTION, LIES, of CLASSIC KANGAROO COURT CASE, and of INTERNATIONAL MEDIA RELEASE (relates to that embalmer, ex-cop, and ex-senator Stephen Parry who has confirmed – in writing – prior knowledge of the massacre) are available from martinbryantisinnocent@gmail.com & bigwormbooks@gmx.net) There is no copyright on any of these documents.

Note: Now based in Austria, Mr Noble has written other books about government-sponsored murder including the disappearance of Peter Falconio near Barrow Creek in the Northern Territory in 2001. Bradley Murdoch was eventually convicted of Falconio’s murder. Keith Noble says the NT police grabbed Murdoch after a hopelessly compromised and bungled investigation including a dodgy statement from girlfriend Joanna Lees then charged him for the murder without ever finding a body.

Gangs of black African savages rape and pillage Melbourne suburbia

Coming soon to a suburb near you, compliments of the UN, Labor/Greens and Liberals

from The Age

A 59-year-old woman attacked and held hostage in a home by up to a dozen African youths has lost the main connection to her husband who is in intensive care after a Christmas Eve heart attack.

A relative of the woman said she was grabbed, beaten, and forced to give up the code to her iPad after the youths smashed into the home in Hillside, in Melbourne’s west.

As the woman’s husband is in intensive care, she can only visit him for short periods and uses the iPad to keep in contact with him.

Just before 11.30pm Thursday, the woman went to let a pet dog out into the backyard, through a large double-glass door. When she pulled up the blinds, she was confronted with between eight and 12 youths of African appearance leaping over the pool fence toward her.

“So she ran. This window is double-glazed, and they’ve just smashed right through it,” said relative Paul.

“So she nearly made it to the front door, she tripped over our dog. But one got through this part of the window and grabbed her, smacked her in the mouth. Apparently he then opened the front door and there was another one.”

She was house-sitting for relatives Samantha and her husband Paul while they were away on holiday, they told The Age on Friday.

The woman was held hostage in her front room as the gang rampaged through the house, stealing an Xbox, shoes, and Christmas money one of the couple’s young children had collected before stealing their car. They smashed several walls and a television.

“Her husband had a heart attack Christmas Eve, and he’s in intensive care,” Paul said.

“She begged them not to take her iPad because that’s her connection to her husband.”

After the youths left, the woman staggered out of the house and contacted neighbours, who eventually called Paul and Samantha. The couple spent Friday mopping up a trail of blood and blocking over the smashed glass door.

“These cops I spoke to this morning, they are frustrated,” Samantha said.

“I said ‘I feel sorry for you guys, you do all the hard work, and it gets to the next level, and there is no consequences’.”

She said the police officers agreed with her.

“I just don’t know how they can bluntly come into people’s homes and grab onto things that aren’t even theirs. They don’t realise the impact they have on your spirit and the way you feel. I feel unsafe, I feel scared for my kids.”

The Age understands police have taken CCTV footage from a nearby house, as well as fingerprints from the crime scene.

The attack was part of a violent crime spree in Melbourne’s west, including home invasions and assaults, that police described as “thuggish and abhorrent”.

The number of young men involved is yet to be determined.  Victoria Police Commander for the north west metro region Russell Barrett said at a media conference on Friday, but all the victims had told police the offenders were of “African appearance”.

Commander Barrett said it was too early to determine whether the violence was linked to the same group of young offenders, however, it is likely they were given the crimes were committed within a few kilometres of each other.

A second home invasion took place just about 12.45am on Friday in Coleridge Drive, Delahey.

An 18-year-old victim of the home invasion said he was returning home from work about 12.45am when he found three young men attempting to smash their way through his front door as he pulled into the driveway.

He said the men were able to break the glass panel next to the door before his dad heard them and armed himself with a baseball bat inside.

“He just started hitting their hands with the baseball bat so they couldn’t undo the lock,” he said. “But as soon as I got there, they saw the headlights of the car, and they just started running I think they thought I was the cops or something.”

The father, also who did not want to be indentified, said one of the men managed to get into the house through the garage door and stole a mobile phone that was on the floor in the living room before fleeing.

He said another two men who were trying to smash their way through the front door were screaming “come out here, we’re going to kill you”.

“My wife was already in bed and she didn’t know what was happening,” he said. “I thought they were going to kill me, I just kept hitting them with the bat then my son got home. We feel really scared to be here now.”

The teenager said his 25-year-old brother and mother were also inside during the attack and the family would be installing security cameras this weekend.

“We’re all pretty shaken up and tired,” he said. “It’s made us feel like we aren’t even safe in our own home.”

The teenager said the three young men fled into a getaway car.

He pulled out of the driveway and chased after them.

“I wanted to get a car registration number or something I could tell police,” he said. “But they were driving so fast and running red lights, I couldn’t catch them.”

Other residents in Coleridge Drive say they’re living in fear, with cars and houses regularly broken into.

One resident, Samuel Momo, said his family no longer parked their cars on the street after his dad’s car was broken into a number of times last year.

Mr Momo said he wasn’t shocked by the latest home invasion in his neighbourhood.

“There was a gun shooting across the road from our house a few years back,” Mr Momo said.

“It’s almost like the norm here. I don’t think it’s a recent thing either, there’s always been a fair bit of crime. We keep the house locked up at night. Even if it’s a hot night, we might open a window to let a bit of air in but we turn off all the lights so nobody can see in.”

Another resident said he stepped out the front of his house last week to see his mum’s car has been “kicked in”.

“The windscreen was smashed, there was glass everywhere,” he said. “It’s a pretty common occurrence. At one stage it was happening (to cars in the street) about twice a week. Other times cars speeding down the street have ploughed straight into houses.”

The man who has lived in the neighbourhood  for seven years said while he felt there had always been an element of crime in the area, he had noticed an increased presence of teenagers on the streets at night in recent months.

“I see mobs of youth walking down the street at night a lot,” he said. “Sometimes they’re not doing anything too suss from what I can see, but they’re always loud and they walk together in big groups which would be intimidating for anyone walking down the street.”

Another resident who also did not want to be named said she never opened her windows or doors and kept her car inside her garage at all times.

“To be honest I don’t feel safe to do that anymore,” she said.

“It used to be such a lovely area but you hear things and you see things on the news and the paranoia and fear grows. When the police knocked on my door this morning to tell me about what happened down the street I thought “here we go again.”

Comment: This is a political problem initiated by the political party duopoly. Until you start demanding these worthless thugs be deported or executed you will have to put up with the problem.

The political party corporations will not allow you, as the first respondent to protect yourself by any means. Cairns News suggests you join a rifle or pistol club, buy a shotgun and arm yourselves in readiness. There will be no worthwhile help from police or the judicial system under present arrangements.
