Black crime gangs: Dutton thinks Andrews should quit

Black crime gangs: Dutton thinks Andrews should quit

Ah, ha! The travelling Victorian Premier Andrews finally returns to his flock to whisper dumb words claiming rampant black gang violence is simply a “distraction.” Andrews is proving himself totally unfit for the office he holds and his ignoring the crime factor in Victoria goes hand in hand with his disastrous handling of the CFA where volunteer rural firefighters were being forced under union control. The people must wake up to this fool before more damage is done .

Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton says Premier Daniel Andrews should consider resigning if he does not admit Victoria has a problem with African gang violence and commit to solutions. The pair exchanged barbs on Thursday amid the ongoing political furore over street violence, sparked by Mr Dutton’s claim last week that some Victorians were scared to eat out because of gangs.

Andrews and Dutton trade blows over youth violence

Mr Andrews scorned those suggestions and invited Mr Dutton to join him for dinner at a restaurant, an offer quickly rejected by the Turnbull government minister.
“He can offer to shout me dinner all he likes, but all it is is a distraction,” Mr Dutton told Sky News on Thursday night.
“Mr Andrews has taken this left-wing approach to the law and order system and it has resulted in this gang violence in Victoria.”

Mr Dutton accused the premier of appointing lenient judges who were wrongly allowing bail and imposing “very soft sentences” in the name of political correctness.

“He needs to admit that he’s made a problem,” Mr Dutton said. “If he doesn’t, as I say, then he needs to consider his position.”
Returning to work from leave, Mr Andrews said there had been some nasty criminal incidents recently but expressed confidence Victoria Police was “turning this around”.
“We can be confident they are the best police force in the nation,” he said.
Mr Andrews’ return to work comes amid heightened tension between the state and federal governments over youth violence in Victoria.
At the end of last year Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull hit out at the Andrews government’s handling of “gang violence” in Victoria.
But on Thursday morning Mr Andrews said the Prime Minister did not raise the matter when they spoke late last year.
“I must have spoken to him four or five times towards the end of the year about a whole range of issues.”
“I think Mr Dutton’s comments were designed to get a rise out of people,” Mr Andrews said. “They were designed to be as controversial as possible.
“I don’t know how often he spends time in Melbourne. He’s always welcome to come and have dinner.”
But on Thursday Mr Dutton stepped up his attacks on the Victorian government, stressing he does not want to see a “small element” of the African community tarnish the reputation of others.
In an interview on Adelaide radio station FIVEaa he cited a  ReachTel poll commissioned by The Age last week that found unease in suburbs affected by recent high-profile incidents.
Mr Dutton said there was a “problem with some of the judges and magistrates that Daniel Andrews has appointed” and criticised people for denying the existence of gang-related violence.
But, Mr Dutton’s office declined to provide specific examples of concern in Victoria’s court system when contacted by The Age.
The Law Institute of Victoria said it was “extremely concerned by the ongoing political attacks on Victorian judges, magistrates and the legal profession”.
“There is no place for political attacks on the judiciary and undermining the independence of our judges and magistrates,” the institute said.
The Judicial Conference of Australia also raised concerns about “repeated personal attacks on judges and magistrates”.
Victorian Attorney-General Martin Pakula said: “While Peter Dutton may enjoy going on Adelaide radio to take ill-informed pot shots at Victoria he has clearly not been paying attention. No Victorian government in recent memory has appointed more prosecutors and ex-prosecutors to our courts than this government. “
Mr Andrews said he had termed recent criminal activity as “gang crime”.
However, he said Deputy Commissioner Andrew Crisp had expressed concern that some people might be “fuelled or pushed on” by being called a gang.
“I do have some sympathy for the difficult balance that Victoria Police has to strike,” Mr Andrews said.
Despite some high-profile criminal incidents recently, crime in Victoria has declined, the latest data shows.
On Wednesday Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton rejected suggestions of an “African gangs crisis” and said some people of African origin had been subjected to racially motivated death threats.
South Sudanese leader and solicitor Kot Monoah said members of the community had been unfairly threatened and racially vilified.
Together with African-Australian leaders Victoria Police will form a taskforce to tackle public order offences.
Victorian Opposition Leader Matthew Guy said his office had been inundated in recent days with “hundreds of examples” of Melburnians who were frightened about the state of law and order.
Mr Guy accused the Andrews government of failing to acknowledge the seriousness of the issue.

    Frightened to go out but is it any safer at home? And that just the Premier. What a quandary! Bring on the election.

  • Xword 12/01/2018, 7:17 am

    One thing for sure it now settles the debate as to which is the best city, Sydney or Melbourne. High IQ yellow folk certainly prefer the northern candidate it would appear…

  • Jarrah 12/01/2018, 7:39 am

    For Andrews to say that the Victorian Police force is the best in the country shows how out of touch he is. They are a force infected by political correctness at the hands of this clown, the Premier. I agree with Dutton, Andrews is not fit for office and needs to be booted, what an abject fool he is. He needs to understand that Victoria has a major problem with African gangs, occurring under his watch, all his doing and he needs to accept and understand that.

      Vic Police FORCE are great at hassling people who contest illegal fines. OR the PTOs hassle grannies and people who are small and timid to fine and harass, but leave the big boys alone. I once saw a group of 4 armored PTOs accost a pack of 4 teen schoolgirls in uniform AFTER the ladies crossed the road on exiting a tram. But wander around in a gang of 20 afros scouting out houses to attack is just fine with them, unless you are Caucasian. But if you are black or a jihadi that is considered to be an acceptable activity and you should not fear them as the gangs are destroying your life.

    Andrews is an absolute failure and the damage he has done to Victoria and Melburnians will be long remembered. He disappears off the screen for a number of weeks while the black African gang problem got even further out of control and the most ridiculous police force in Australia bumbled around while the morons in command made kindergarten grade comments and displayed their inability to bring some semblance of control.

    To top it all off the missing in action police commissioner returns from the holiday he had to have because he couldn’t stand the heat in the kitchen and declares that there is no gang violence and the real problem was the right wingers who were racists.

    Then, da dah, Danny boy pops up from behind the invisible cloak to declare that black African gangs were indeed a major problem and he was going to stamp them out.

    What we are witnessing is not a premier with leadership qualities nor the best police force in Australia but gross incompetence at the highest levels, obfuscation on a grand scale, official lies, ignorance, arrogance all mixed together with lots and lots of bullshit!

    • Lorraine 12/01/2018, 8:52 am

      I agree totally and have one further to add to your comments of truth. The Chief had a totally acceptable mental breakdown with all PC and Beyond blue , and the shrink thinks he can now run the police force……are you kidding .

      What we are witnessing is the imposing of Communism by legislation. Military might is no longer needed for this. And the commie faction is the largest faction in the labor party after the labor and Australian communist parties merged in the 1970s.

  • Honeybadger 12/01/2018, 9:24 am

    Talk about obfuscation! Using the word gang might fuel the little African charmers according to Dan the man, so that’s what’s important, use of a word not the crimes.
    Victorian crime may have declined but not the African component which has soared. Just what galaxy do these pollies come from in their denials?

  • Ibbit 12/01/2018, 9:26 am

    Well, if Andrews thinks rampant black crime is a distraction it must be his government he is thinking about. Couldn’t get much worse. Wonder what he would say if a no-=skin colour gang violently invaded his home? Would he still be saying “nothing to see here?”
    He should resign or, if he doesn’t, the people of Victoria should kick him in the butt so hard that he doesn’t forget in a hurry.

  • Eliza 12/01/2018, 9:40 am

    The trouble with people like Dan the man is that he has never governed (see the CFMEU for that so called job) but boy does he and his mates love labels and it is easier to name the so called right wingers as racists etc than do his job.

  • Penguinite 12/01/2018, 10:38 am

    This current Premier is the reason our infamous Juliar Gillard remains out of jail. If it wasn’t for his election Gillard would have been charged for numerous offenses not least of which is lying to the RCU and perverting the course of justice not to mention forgery!!!

  • Aktosplatz 12/01/2018, 10:49 am

    Mr Dutton was right to refuse a dinner invitation from Andrews, but should offer one in return:-

    A meeting of both Dutton and Andrews with all of the victims of these gangs so far for a question-and-answer session.

    Don’t hold your breath though.

    • Lorraine 12/01/2018, 11:34 am

      Oh yes the victims. no one mentions them, they are just the fall out from Black Gang Crime

  • Clarion Call 12/01/2018, 11:46 am

    Elephant jugs, RamaDan Andrews, has earned the tag: Australia’s most absurd politician. A total failure at administration, visionless, injected with the socialist virus at an early age, lacking any sense of self-awareness, and to top that off….he’s an absolute dope of the first order. However, for some strange reason, residents of Victoriastan seem drawn to themse odern-day Robbing Hoods who take from the poor and hand over to the rich ( anyone associated with the ALP/unions). We’ll just have to accept that Victoria is a lost cause.

  • Ozisceptic 12/01/2018, 12:12 pm

    One way they try to diminish the ethnic crime stats is to only include those that were BORN in the overseas country or area in question. All others of that heritage if born here are included in Australian person statistics.
    The criminologists love this trick ( ref NSW and Wedderburn )

  • Honeybadger 12/01/2018, 12:18 pm

    Trump summed it up in the Oval Office today. “Why are we importing people from sh..hole countries?”

    • TommyGun 12/01/2018, 7:30 pm

      Love it!
      I’ve been asking that question here ever since about 1975.

  • Botswana O'Hooligan 12/01/2018, 12:21 pm

    No matter what anyone says a bunch of moslems or a bunch of black people in the one spot always spell trouble of one sort or another.

  • Graham 12/01/2018, 12:32 pm

    Andrews and Ashton will never be able to extract their heads from their arseholes. What are they trying to do, saying gang crime doesn’t exist yet everyday there are more reports.

    There must be a ‘phobia’ that relates to this propensity by politicians to try and convince the public that what they see with their own eyes is not true. Is it stupidityphobia or moronicphobia? Either way it’s probably time for the men in white coats to come calling.

    • TommyGun 12/01/2018, 7:31 pm

      They both belong in the Rubber Room.

  • Graham Richards 12/01/2018, 1:16 pm

    Is the opposition likely to be any better? Even the Coalition are a bunch of softies who lean so far left they’ll fall over anyway. We are totally bereft of any leadership material right now, whether the ALP or LNP. This situation with rioting crime ridden immigrant communities is a direct result of governments signing up to agreements with the UN. Without the knowledge of the Australian electorate. Agreements made in secret without us having a Vote?

  • Clarion Call 12/01/2018, 2:26 pm

    Some interesting dictionary listings: Absurdity beyond stupid: Any jug eared socialist politician named Andrews. Another listing: Robbing Hoods…. political figures who take from the poor (that’s you and me) and give freely to the rich (that would be them). A third listing discovery : Highest level brainlessness…Victorian police minister and police chiefs. The final listing searched: Dumb beyond reason….Victorian voters.
