When I heard about the shooting of two young indigenous “children” while they were in a stolen car I could not help wondering just how much time the police officers involved had spent on the firing range, two shot and no fatalities? They need more practice!
Ok maybe I should not be so flippant but what can the indigenous elders and community leaders expect when the police are faced with life threatening behaviour that saw the car driven at a pedestrian?
Surely this is an incident where (potentially) lethal force was both necessary and justified no matter who the perps were. Sadly real life is not like the movies where a car can be stopped dead by shooting its tyres out as one person has suggested in the SMH report.
Isn’t it funny though that all of our friends from the left will claim or imply that the reason for so many indigenous people coming into contact with the law and subsequently sojourning in one of Her Majesty’s fine hotels is a result of racism and prejudice rather than the fact that so many of the community seem to have a total disregard for the laws that govern us all.
