WARMING SCAM: HOW PACIFIC ISLANDS TAKE US FOR MILLIONS
Australia is being played for a mug – taken for hundreds of millions of dollars by Pacific Island leaders playing the global warming scam. Why is the Liberal Government not calling out this obvious shakedown?
SINCE WHEN WERE SUCH WEAPONS NEEDED TO CONTROL CROWDS?
Never have police had to do what Victorian police boss Graham Ashton now has: flaunt an incredible new range of weapons to use against protesters and ethnic mobs.
Ashton is under fire after yet another riot by Africans, plus some Pacific Islanders, at which not one person was arrested.
Police officers clearly felt too scared to confront the 200 people brawling in Collingwood on Sunday morning and Ashton on Wednesday promised them new weapons to face down people who seem unusually violent.
His armoury sounds impressive: 15 semiautomatic 175-shot pepper-ball rifles, 40mm launchers that fire hard projectiles, stinger grenades, flash-bangs and capsicum canisters. But wait a minute. Grenades? Canisters to bomb crowds with a disabling gas?
When did Melbourne, hailed as Australia’s most successful multicultural city, need weapons to keep the peace? And Ashton, reports The Age, said “long-term police intelligence pointed to an increase in dangerous public disorder incidents”.
