Cut and paste press releases from the pleeces. That is the "real news" you promise to bring us?
Getting a bit mainstream aren't you?

Any effort to stop these morons is surely worthwhile isn't it Loose Nuke? Unless of course you are a 'perp'?

These violent, invasive and opportunistic crimes are happening in frighteningly increasing numbers on a daily basis. It is my hope that the more often they are brought to the attention of the general public in any form of media, the more likely the public's anger at the wishy washy punishments dished out by the courts will finally be recognised and something done about it.
Cairns is becoming world famous for being a dangerous city so why would anyone want to holiday here. Acting strongly on these crimes is the first step in bringing back the tourists.
Keep this going, Mike, it may make a difference.

At least mainstream media looks beyond the press releases.

Hendo, and so they should. The Murdoch empire has far greater resources than this blog. It is just a pity they can't use their powers for the benefit of society.
