What more can any Government do?
They increase police numbers, make sentences tougher, tighten bail and parole provisions and all the rest.
The bleeding hearts take the Government to court because they put violent young thugs in Barwon, Civil Rights are somehow infringed because we try to make our society safer, and supporting criminals is more progressive than jailing them.
Across the World drugs are rampant and society is powerless to stop its spread, unless we take the lead fron Duerte in Manila and shoot them all.
If I hear an Opposition in any Government say that if elected they wil go "tough on crime" I think I will scream. Most crime is economic and perhaps finding more jobs for everyone could help, but no Government can stop a violent, apathetic, compassionless thug; the problem starts before birth.
