Thugs intimidate puny, risk-averse police force | thetelegraph.com.au

SYDNEY in the wee hours is a bloody, violent place where drugs, alcohol, testosterone and all-night drinking establishments create a lethal alchemy.

This is the dark frontier where police try to impose order and protect the weak.

But bouncers, along with former and serving officers, say the police force has become so risk-averse and politically correct it is incapable of fulfilling its most basic function, to stop bad guys hurting good guys.

Increasingly, a private security industry is taking over the frontline response to street violence, with bouncers and guards conservatively outnumbering police two to one.

Feral rioters all have one thing in common - a lack of father figures (UK)

The duty of journalists is to tell the truth. If we don't do that, it's the equivalent of a nurse comfortably chatting over a nice cup of tea while an empty saline drip feeds air into a patient's artery. The moment that we think it's more important to protect some comfortable ideological dogma is the moment when our particular patient, truth, begins to die. I take no pleasure in what follows; but there is a job to be done, so here goes.

Perhaps the most astounding element in the British television coverage of the riots over much of England has been the steadfast refusal to mention the race of most of the rioters. They are clearly, and overwhelmingly, Afro-Caribbean, the descendants of immigrants, though such has been the utter British failure to integrate so much of the immigrant population that many have retained something of a Caribbean accent. Admittedly, not all of the rioters are "black": clearly, some white youths have joined in.

Female offending: has there been an increase?

New research by the NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research shows that the number of females proceeded against by police increased substantially over the last decade. According to the Director of the Bureau however, much of the increase could be due to tougher law enforcement rather than increased crime. The number of females proceeded against by police increased by 15 per cent over the 10 years to June 2009. Over the same period, the number of male offenders proceeded against remained stable. The offences having the largest increases in the number of females proceeded against were breach of bail conditions (up 14% per annum), domestic violence assault (up 12% per annum), liquor offences (up 8% per annum), breach of apprehended violence orders (up 6% per annum), malicious damage to property (up 4% per annum) and offensive behavior (up 3% per annum).
