Shadow Minister for Families and Children, Georgie Crozier
Two days after the Moomba riots in March, Daniel Andrews came out of hiding with a ‘tough guy’ routine promising that the youth rioters would “feel the full force of the law” and that “we will come after you”. Now we learn that one of the Apex gang who rioted at Moomba, has also been involved in home invasions including threats of rape as well as a series of robberies and a car chase over the West Gate Bridge. Another one of the Moomba rioters has also been reported to have been subsequently involved in other violent crimes, robberies and the car chase that ended dramatically on the West Gate Bridge. This is a weak Premier whose soft touch on law and order has allowed this crime tsunami to spiral out of control. Victorians have every right to be cynical whenever Daniel Andrews tries his ‘Dirty Harry’ routine when the television cameras are rolling.
