I told you this would happen (Melbourne, Australia edition)

A stereotypical angry mob from one of the Frankenstein movies


This blog has published many pieces (see links list below) under the title ‘I told you this would happen’ on the reactions of people who’ve had enough of the damage caused to their societies by Islam and of the appeasement of Islam by their governments. These pieces are based on my fear that if there is no proper legal, political and state-based policing solutions to the problems caused by Islam, then an angry public will take the law into their own hands. This, as I’ve often said, is not something that we should either want or desire as such vigilantism is a sign of both societal and political breakdown. It is far better in my view that the legitimate police and the military smash the heads of violent Muslims and deal with the problems they cause, rather than the citizen do that job. There is great danger in vigilantism in so far as it is often indiscriminate and can go after both the guilty and the innocent.

However, it seems that in Melbourne, Australia the situation regarding Islamic criminality and anti social behaviour has got so bad that some residents are openly calling for and setting up vigilante patrols to deal with Islamic migrant gangs. This is not going to end well and it is a situation that could easily had been avoided had the Australian policing and other security authorities not pandered to Muslims or tip toed around the problems that they are causing.

Here’s a report from the Australian news site news.com.au I have reproduced it in full rather than in part, just in case it disappears down the internet memory hole.

Andrew Koubaridis writing for news.com.au said:

A MELBOURNE man is starting a vigilante group to “take back our streets” from ethnic street gangs that are terrorising locals.

Hayden Bradford believes police and the justice system are not to doing enough to protect Victorians and has started recruiting potential members for the group.

Some of the recruits are so desperate for action they have already pledged thousands of dollars to finance the group, which Mr Bradford hopes will be patrolling streets soon.

He told news.com.au the first meeting could take place within days.

“I think it’s getting to that stage people are just sort of saying ‘if we have to take back our streets then fine — we’ll do it our way’.”

Mr Bradford said there was “no doubt” there was some strong right-wing views in the community, but what he was proposing didn’t involve any law-breaking or taking the law into their own hands.

“That’s not what we’re about. What we’re saying is put a presence there because the gutless bastards won’t do anything if there’s a presence.”

The ‘people power’ illustrates the dramatic escalation in the tension and fear that exists in some sections of the community in the Victorian capital.

Youth gangs, including notorious Apex, have been unleashing mayhem on city streets for months including bashings, home invasions and carjackings.

Anxiety over the rising crime rate — and perceived disconnect between authorities and citizens — was most evident after six people were killed when a man on bail allegedly mowed them down in Bourke St Mall.

At the weekend dozens of Sudanese youths rampaged through a family festival, punching and kicking people and stealing their belongings.

One mum told The Herald Sun the gang was intimidating.

“They have no fear. There’s a police station right next door, but it doesn’t seem to deter them,” she said.

“Once the fireworks started it was like the Running of the Bulls.”

Mr Bradford, whose occupation is investing and writing, said: “It started as the odd home invasion, or carjacking … But what we are seeing now has gone past that. We have gangs of these people [taking part in] planned attacks. They deliberately target people and want to cause mayhem and hurt people.”

Since he put the call out through social media for a “vigilante group” he had been contacted by dozens of people who either want to take part or finance it.

Mr Bradford said about $10,000 had been promised so far. The money raised would help expenses like petrol volunteers would use.

“A number of people have actually said to me there were already vigilante groups operating in their suburbs. So they are there, despite what the Andrews Government might say.”

Recent promises of boosting the number of police were a long-term fix — but locals were desperate for action now.

“This is why people have these vigilante groups patrolling their areas because there isn’t enough police.”

It was something he never thought could happen in Melbourne.

“People are fed up, they realise something has to be done.”

The people who wanted to join his group were a cross-section of society. “They’re from all walks of life and various backgrounds. The thing you have in Melbourne [now] is people are scared and frightened for their security.’

Asked about the nature of what he was proposing, Mr Bradford said they were not encouraging illegal activity.

“Vigilante is an American term where you think of people walking around with shotguns shooting people. Nothing I fund would do anything illegal. Someone suggested there was a peace through presence, just being there could hopefully mean these gutless little sh*ts wouldn’t do anything if they see a couple of blokes sitting in a car. They won’t go anywhere near homes because they are gutless.”

He said his group would be “more like Neighbourhood Watch where people go to designated areas”.

It isn’t the first time vigilante-style groups have been suggested in Melbourne. In July last year the Police Association secre­tary Ron Iddles told The Herald Sun he feared frustrated residents could take “matters into their own hands” after a resident patrol group began.

“I don’t call them vigilantes, but concerned residents who patrol and report to the police,” he said.

“Police stations are operating at a reduced capacity and they can’t respond, it’s putting members under stress,” Mr Iddles said.

Also last year, the Soldiers of Odin — an offshoot of a far-right Finnish group — confirmed they hold nightly patrols in the CBD and outer suburbs.

They wear black jackets emblazoned with a Norse war helmet and an Australian flag and appear to operate similarly to the Guardian Angels network, founded in New York City in the late 1970s, to patrol the subway system.

“Today our citizens are at fear when they leave there (sic) home, some don’t even feel safe there,” the group says on its Facebook page.

“We will not look away, we will not turn a blind eye.”

They say they are against racism and Nazism, and don’t support anti-semitism.

But they also say they’re against Islam. Their Facebook page says they are against “the fact it is okay to be” proud to be black, Asian, homosexual or transgender.

Mr Bradford said he’d been told the Melbourne division wanted to meet him, which he was happy to do.

“I’m open to meet with anyone and will be … The point is we have got to do something.”

His feedback from people was a growing frustration about the “way the law works in Melbourne.

“ … The police can arrest a gang member for a crime, but the court system releases the punk on bail to reoffend. The state Government of Victoria does nothing except to ask for a report. We’re sick of reports, we want action now.”

He said he had written to the Victorian Police Minister Lisa Neville and Premier Daniel Andrews, but no one was prepared to meet with him to discuss his concerns.

A Victoria Police spokeswoman told news.com.au said private ‘vigilante’ groups were not encouraged.

“We do not recommend people confront offenders as this places you at risk of harm. Police have extensive training which equips them with the skills and resources needed to respond to safety issues.”

The spokeswoman said people should ring triple-0 if they were in danger or witnessed a crime.

As I have said previously, I disapprove of vigilantism because it could end up as mobs attacking innocent people. However, I can well understand and sympathise with those calling for and setting up vigilante groups in Melbourne. After all, the decent local people have put up with appalling levels of crime and violence that is being perpetrated by Islamic savages.

The fact that people are pledging money and resources to a vigilante gang in Melbourne should give readers some indication of just how bad the situation regarding Islamic savagery has become in Australia. The people there should be able to rely on their police and other security organs to control this Islamic savagery but these agencies seem to be doing very little that is practical to control the situation. The Australian people have been let down by their government and their security agencies over the matter of violent Islam. They are now expressing that anger and may well be ‘tooling up’ to defend themselves and their families from an onslaught of violent Islam that the legitimate governing powers seem to be doing very little to counter.

Yet again I find myself having to say with both sadness and resignation ‘I told you this would happen.’
