The community terrorized by warring Sudanese Muslim gangs has reacted with fury amid revelations police ‘tactically’ chose not to arrest the rampaging perpetrators.
Daily Mail (h/ Sara S) About 100 youths gathered for an organized fight which was sparked over a ‘teenage issue over a girl’ at Taylors Hill in Melbourne’s north-west.
The riot squad broke up the two groups, who bragged police ‘can’t touch us’, abused locals as ‘white trash’ and threatened to ransack their homes. Metro Commander Tim Hansen said arresting the youths was never the priority of police, even when officers were pelted with rocks.
Members of the pubic reported youths were armed with baseball bats, while the riot squad had rocks hurled at them as they moved the crowd on.
Victoria Police has come under fire from locals and the wider Melbourne community for not making any arrests, with many arguing officers are ‘running scared of African gangs’.
‘If someone else was to do something like that, would they be charged?’ one Taylors Hill local questioned to Nine News. ‘Would they be arrested? What is going on? There needs to be something done.’
Others took to social media to suggest police ‘run for the hills’ when it comes to African gangs. ‘Vic Police are running scared of these African gangs… the gangs are now controlling the police,’ one wrote on Twitter.’If they did arrest them, the judges would send them home with an Xbox,’ another suggested.
