The reason we have increasing violent juvenile crime is simple. Police are attacked every time they attempt to deal with it. The latest hysteria comes after the Sunday Telegraph released footage showing a violent arrest in Kings Cross. These are not ''boys''. Firstly, the male in the footage, Troy Taylor is 18. He is therefore an adult. These ''boys'' were driving a stolen vehicle at 4:00am in Kings Cross, and had driven down the footpath in an attempt to evade police. An innocent women was hit and seriously injured.
These sort of incidents can have deadly and tragic consequences. In 2007, a woman was killed when a car mounted the busy footpath in Kogarah.
These ''boys'' are dangerous, violent thugs. If these ''boys'' had stopped when the Police first saw them, they wouldn't have been arrested like that. They don't need sympathy or bleeding hearts, the Police who deal with this sort of scum in Kings Cross and Redfern deserve sympathy.
