Victoria is now concerned about an argument of gangs. Specifically, it has an argument on whether to call the groups of young African people a “gang”, and what has to be done for solutions. Especially victims of crime in Melbourne, it has greatly affected those living there.
The argument also includes about the race. In comment sections of front-page articles about gangster violence and on the Victoria’s official social media page is filled up with comments to stop immigration until solutions can be sorted out.
These arguments are related to the growth of large-scale violent offences committed by young African people, who have been associated with Melbourne’s Sudanese migrant community. Local media coverage like the tabloid, Herald Sun has named Victoria “a fearful state” and reports that it can affect the present Labour government a chance in the November state election.
The prime minister also had various concepts about the increasing gangster violence and unruliness in Victoria. However, police claimed that even though the African street gangs was an ongoing problem, it canbe an exaggeration to call the groups as “gangs”.
So, What’sReally Happening?
The growing issue about crime gangstersconcerning African youths in Melbourne may have started in Dandenong in the middle 2000s. This led to several victims of crime in Melbourne triggered by the so-called gangs.
The first incident happened during the Moomba festival in 2016, when the so-called Apex gang was behinda violent wrangle that had 800 of them searched for weapons while 53 others arrested.
In December 2017, three significant incidents happened with the attack of a police officer who was scuffed and surrounded by young African people when a suspected lifter was interrogated at a shopping centre; the wrangling in St. Kilda McDonald’s; and, the salvaging of a property after a wild Werribeeparty.
All three incidents involved African youths where the Werribee house was labelled with “Menace to Society or MTS”. It meant the loosely group of Sudanese and other teenagers associated to the various public order offences and led to many victims of crime in Melbourne for the past six months.
