 Violent crime surge in PNG’s during health crisis

03.05.21.  Australia’s nearest neighbour Papua New Guinea is experiencing a surge in violent crime as it struggles under the weight of an economic and health crisis.
New video obtained by The Australian shows the murder of a man, seen running from machete-wielding men in Koki, Port Moresby, about 4.30am on Friday. PNG security providers said the Milne Bay Province capital of Alotau was also under siege from gangs, known as “raskols”, who burned down police houses. “Reports received that the thugs have the police outnumbered and have more fire power than police at this stage and are standing off police,” one security company said.
“All shops in Alotau are closed and there is a call for a state of emergency at this stage.

Violence flares in crisis-hit PNG
The East New Britain capital of Rabaul was also facing a surge in gang-related violence, according to a security alert.
“Rabaul is kicking off again, might want to let your people in ENB know to avoid it. Two stabbed 5mins ago and about 100 boys coming thru the main St looking for revenge,” the alert said.
PNG’s hospitals are overwhelmed by COVID cases, while the country’s economy is facing unprecedented challenges, amid rampant corruption and stalled resources projects.

    That deadly covid is killing everybody in the streets. But keep the propaganda going. Everybody needs those mRNA injections and the ones with GMOs, monkey cells and some human fetus tissue.

    BLM and Antifa take note: defund the police and let these guys show you about black lives matter.

      PNG could be a great study paper for US cities under siege by BLM/Antifa activists? Defund police at their peril! I spotted an item yesterday showing how BLM/Antifa thugs attacked a restaurant where at least one patron was armed and apparently prepared to retaliate. The same shot also highlighted one of the attackers also sporting a sidearm? Things are definitely hotting up. A physical clash perhaps not imminent but definitely simmering!

        Well, I kinda hope ordinary people can avoid having to shoot to defend themselves, because the MSM will believe the blm/ antifa cry-bullying and say it was a right-wing extremist attack on peaceful demonstrators. Then that ordinary citizen will end up in court, same thing. Then they’ll be in prison. That’s where we are at.

        Ian_A; One can only hope that the MSM get caught in the crossfire and end up as necessary collateral damage!

        …..and its odd that ASIO has put out a warning that we will see a terroist attack here on our soil within 12 months. From Far Right Extremists??
        Always said that goverments create public unrest through enabling extremists.
        Oh wait, have they stood back and not opined about the lunatic left for a decade or more??
        Or are they waiting for the push back because the left will welcome that (and continue voting gangrene)

      Yes. L. Such peaceful people these blacks. They identify with the continent of Africa, home of the largest area of the planet with all tribes living peacefully in the garden of islam.

    I grew up in East Sepik Area. My sister and I went back in 2018 for a couple of weeks. Oli as we called the locals are upset and not happy that their Govts. have allowed the Chinese in. Somare was from the Sepik and they disowned him. He was the first to do it by allowing the Malaysians in to grab the timber.

      Sounds about right. Its elites vs grassroots. The elites do these deals with asians, the grassroots get little to nothing — but have their resources stolen. I see it too, same thing’s going on in our province. And in Moresby, the elites have gated compounds and guards, everyone else just lives with neighbourhood solidarity that is touch and go. The country is going nowhere. Just turning into a giant ghetto.
