Crime gangs: Facts, fiction and furphies

 

John Silvester

Yes, there is a sinister group (gang, if you like) well practised in the dark arts of moving quickly on the vulnerable for personal gain. They are the politicians who jumped into this debate with the subtlety of a belly flop in a wading pool.

Internal police figures show that of Victoria’s 15,000 “serious” crimes ranging from murder, serious assaults, rape and armed robberies to carjackings, around 200 are committed by offenders of Sudanese descent – which means you are 74 times more likely to be attacked by non-Sudanese.

So what do these statistics prove? Absolutely nothing, other than that you can always find a set of numbers to justify an argument.

Piss Weak on Law and Order Look No Further than Peter Dutton

The issue of law and order is squarely in Dutton’s domain, and while he has no responsibility on state matters, he has a major one on federal ones, particularly border protection. Which makes it all the more galling that while he wastes his energy on matters that are not his concern, he has been derelict on one in his own backyard. The problem is not that Dutton is too tough – it is that he is not tough enough.

For nearly 12 months the state government, at the request of senior police, have asked their federal counterparts to change the law to make it illegal to import Bute without a legitimate reason and still the loophole remains large enough to drive a truck (filled with drugs) through it.

So while the Feds can legitimately brag they have stopped the boats with asylum seekers on them, they have done stuff-all to stop the boats filled with 1,4-Butanediol. And make no mistake, more people are hospitalised from Bute than from being bashed by Sudanese crime gangs.

Yet we do have a serious black crime problem. In Australia, an Indigenous youth is 24 times more likely to be imprisoned than the community average for that age bracket. It is a national disgrace.
Rehabilitating young offenders is not the soft option, it is the smart one. The alternative of policies driven by anger, fear, half-facts and the pursuit of headlines or votes leads to more crime and more victims – and history shows that if you shut the door on people, they eventually want to kick it down.

This goes beyond Bolt: It’s about racism and the government’s involvement. – » The Australian Independent Media Network

August 9 2018

On the same day that Indian-born migrant Akshay Venkatesh was receiving the prestigious Fields Medal in mathematics, the Australian born son of Dutch immigrants, mediocre columnist Andrew Bolt was publishing an article full of racist gobbledygook to titillate those on the extreme-right of Australian society.

The piece titled; “The foreign invasion” claimed that a “tidal wave” of migrants was “changing our culture.” In it he pointed out the proportion of Chinese, Cambodian, Indian and Jewish people living in various suburbs.

He has, as a consequence of his rather thoughtless, some say racist observations, been referred to the National Press Council.

The Fake “Facts” of the Anti-Muslim Bigots and Fear-Mongers

Why Andrew Bolt works for IS

The vast majority of American Muslims oppose extremism and violence by Muslims or anyone else and have no wish to live under the brutal rule practiced by jihadist fanatics. As a religious minority in a country where their faith makes them potential victims of hate crimes, Muslims have stronger reasons than most Americans for believing in and practicing religious tolerance, not holy war. Keeping Muslim Americans as allies and maintaining their trust in our common values and political and legal institutions will be critical in successfully opposing extremist violence. Losing that trust and driving them away, as the Islamophobes’ ugly falsehoods inevitably will, can only help the terrorists.

Andrew Bolt, presenter of The Bolt Report, on Sky News in Australia.

Andrew Bolt’s gloss in fact turns out to be 1.65% national rating on any single night over 6 states. But lets face it that’s O.13% of the whole population of 24,000,000. That’s rocketing isn’t it. Waleed Aly has an audience x 25 times larger and the ABC nearly X 19. Now this is a Bolt record but it’s not Aly’s or the ABC’s.

Barnaby Joyce affair shows how when men make abysmal choices, women pay the price

Barnaby Joyce and Malcolm Turnbull in Parliament on Thursday.

The Barnaby Joyce scandal is a horrible saga, with so many grubby angles to it, that even after observing it for a week you feel you need a shower, or at least a break. Wife, mistress, children born and unborn: all are collateral damage.

Turnbull actually seems the only one who who spoke up for the women “As a clearly furious Malcolm Turnbull described it on Thursday, in an extraordinary press conference, Joyce has “set off a world of woe” on his family, and “appalled all of us” with his behaviour, as well as raising “very serious issues about the culture” of Parliament House as a workplace.”

Even News Limited columnist Andrew Bolt, not known for his feminist leanings, thundered this week about “the women left behind after helping their husbands build their lives and careers”.

However Andrew Bolt in typical blind posturing  then theatrically attacked Malcolm Turnbull,revealing his primary motive over and above false faux feminist sentiment along with the media crowd declaring the PM weak.

Child Marriages in the USA, not a “Muslim Problem”. | loonwatch.com

How often have we heard Andrew Bolt refer to it as a Muslim problem?

“They are for child marriages”. Who has not heard that myth about Islam and Muslims? But what about the USA? There are states in the USA that allow marriages of children aged 12,13 or 14, and has done so since the 1700s and 1800s. And guess what? It is mainly a “Christian” problem.

This one segment shows how differently Fox treats Christians and Muslims when it comes to terrorism

In a notably hypocritical segment on Fox & Friends, the hosts and their guest, David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network, attacked media outlets that called on Christian leaders to denounce white supremacy and the recent violence in Charlottesville, VA. ”For years, Fox personalities have demanded that Muslims denounce, apologize, and atone for terrorism committed by ISIS and other Muslim extremist groups, even though Muslim groups have often been quick to criticize and denounce these acts of terror.

Controversy is not new to Margaret Court. It has emerged that in 1970 she wrote to a New Zealand newspaper defending apartheid saying,“if you ask me, South Africa has the racial situation rather better organised than anyone else, certainly much better than the United States.” This was in the context of some other sports people boycotting South Africa.

Cries of ‘witch-hunt’ ring hollow for Catholic clergy survivors

Finally, to those who jump, without hesitation, to the defence of Cardinal Pell and assume that his accusers are “deluded” or “confused” or hold some maniacal vendetta: As stated above, George Pell is entitled to the presumption of innocence, but that does not mean that his accusers deserve to be summarily dismissed in the way that children almost always had been until the royal commission turned decades of silence and obfuscation and failure-to-believe on its head.

What you won’t hear from Andrew Bolt is that the cultivation of anger is an obvious product of mistakes and sorry doesn’t cut it. Nor does Trump’s rhetoric after having killed 90 Syrians not to mention the 7 Afghanis , just another Oops from the red white and blue Australia UK and France included

 US airstrike kills at least seven Afghan police officers in Uruzgan | US news | The Guardian

It seems life is no guessing game for Andrew Bolt. “the police took in a man for questioning”  becomes he was “arrested over the NY bombings” and now has to prove his innocence. The Golum Andrew Bolt has stuck it head up above the surface of sewerage again to comment.

 According to Andrew in Australia only the white employed middle and upper class citizens are deserving of British justice, innocent until proven guilty. The rest are guilty even though not arrested or charged.  If they are taken in for questioning or assisting police  they must first prove their innocence. Bolt and his band of travelers reminds me of the Trumpians. Not your average Trump supporter though  but more like the calibre of Eddie  a” how dare you call me a deplorable bitch”  and “I’m going with the world’s best  business man” even though he received $900 mill in Corporate Welfare
