Crime Stoppers Update... back bigger and badder.

This dramatic increase in crime is making me feel insecure and vunerable whilst walking the streets of Cairns.

These people should all be locked up. Zero tolerance on nusiance crime I say. It is only a matter of time before these criminals paint the town red with blood of innocents and the occasional goat.
