Not a police station if it’s close, just a building.

crime scene but not looking for anyone of interest, this lockdown has had some people on the edge of madness doing exceptional things to get help, sevenacres had a rooftop protest recently, there may be another explanation, outside the police station is a red flag, if so lets hope they get the help they need.

Argh, so the 20 yr old idiot got what was coming to him. He damaged someone’s car, then the car owner handed out some justice.

Sad but only way as the courts do nothing.

As the courts fail to give meaningful sentences to the countless low life paraded before them, then some people will understandably deal with such beings themselves, as the law only cares about ‘handing out an crime ref no.’ as Police KNOW that even IF they arrest the trash, the courts won’t back them up now.
