And only seven Muslim criminals/terrorists are charged ? A bit surprising, I’d say, considering that 22 people were initially arrested.
SEVEN protesters accused of taking part in last month's Villawood riots were being charged by police last night, hours after revelations that a home-made bomb had been found in the centre prompted authorities to conduct a thorough search of detainees' rooms.
Officers from the Australian Federal Police last night began charging detainees believed to have been involved in the riots, during which buildings were razed and firefighters were pelted with roof tiles.
Well, at least the AFP decided to charge someone this time instead of providing free counselling and psychological care for the perpetrators.
Still, why are there not charges laid for criminal negligence in handling the situation?
Mr Bowen said yesterday he had been prepared to use force to end the protest, but the AFP, which had ultimate control of the situation, advised him it was not safe to do so. The Australian understands NSW police, with whom the government was also consulting, were willing to get the trio down.
Either Bowen or the AFP top brass should be held responsible don't you think?
Also it would be good to know what really caused of the explosion which damaged the centre’s kitchen.
The search followed revelations aired by Sydney radio talkshow host Ray Hadley that a homemade bomb had been found inside Villawood in March.
In a major embarrassment for Mr Bowen, who knew nothing of the incident when challenged on air about it, NSW Police yesterday confirmed the report. (source)
Oh I forgot, it was the gas cylinder of course.
