Police Guard Churches. . .Now, to the crux of the matter (and the problem):
POLICE will pay "special attention" to religious venues after a spate of attacks on places of worship linked to race-fuelled violence.
A leaked document has indicated that police were not equipped to respond to Monday evening's violence in Cronulla, in which people were assaulted and cars, shopfronts and windows were smashed.Same old, same old. Seems the NSW police hierarchy isn’t getting the message, doesn’t it?
The Seven Network said it had obtained a police incident report instructing officers to stay away from one of the areas - believed to be Punchbowl Park in Sydney's west - on Monday night.
The park is believed to have been the meeting place for scores of men who formed a vehicle convoy which drove to Cronulla unimpeded by police.
The network claimed the report showed some of those in the crowd were suspected of being Middle Eastern criminals who had been involved in malicious damage and civil disobedience offences throughout the Sutherland Shire.
The report is believed to have said "a direction was given to police about midnight not to enter the area and antagonise these persons".
And here’s more on that ‘race-fuelled’ violence:
In separate incidents, a Uniting Church hall in Auburn was burned to the ground on Tuesday night, while the nearby St Thomas' Anglican Church had windows smashed at about the same time.Yep’ – gotta’ hate those Tongans – I guess? Being Christian wouldn’t have had anything to do with it, of course – no way – not possible. You know, if I was a Lebanese Muslim gang member, I’d be a little slow to start pissing off the Tongans. . .
A spokesman for the NSW Uniting Church, Jim Mein, said yesterday members of the mainly Tongan congregation at the Harold Wood Auburn Uniting Church were bewildered by the attack. Police are treating the blaze as suspicious and Mr Iemma has said "it may be" linked to the recent race-fuelled violence in Sydney.
In a fight between King Kong and a Tongan?
