Who let them in?
Yet again I ask: who let them in? Why are we running a refugee program that makes Australia less safe?
Passengers on a North Melbourne tram were threatened by three machete-wielding men in a one-hour ordeal.
About 20 people, including women and students, were on a route 57 tram on Thursday at the time and it took police an hour to contain the men following a tense stand-off.
A passenger told radio station 3AW those on the tram were “absolutely terrified” by the ordeal.
“The men were threatening to kill other passengers and were spitting on people,” caller John told host Tony Jones. “Their behaviour was absolutely disgraceful.”
He said the men were of African appearance and were aged in their 30s or 40s. The men were carrying a machete, which they kept passing to one another.
And this is how ludicrously tender the police are to those abusing our hospitality:
One of the men received penalty notices for being drunk and disorderly, possessing a controlled weapon and behaving in a offensive and insulting manner. Two of the men each also received a penalty notice for being drunk and disorderly. At this stage, the fourth man has not received a fine.
What would the thugs conclude about the danger of breaking the law? What would the passengers conclude about the willingness of the political class to expose them to danger?
A white Aussie would have been shot.
