We have had enough of crime. Successive governments have gone light on those ruining our lives. It's time to get tough, and find the solutions that will make our communities safe once more. There was a time in Australia when we would let our kids play on the street, walk to neighbours, or collect mail from the letterbox. Parents are in such fear that they're only feeling at ease if their children are under constant supervision. We are not meant to live like this, enough is enough.
Our homes are being invaded, our cars stolen, people killed, all the while governments sit on their hands and go 'blah, blah, blah'.
Something has to change, we are not meant to live like this.
To the Honourable President and Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled
The petition of the undersigned shows:
Communities across Australia are living in fear of escalating crime and their governments’ seeming inability or unwillingness to meet their primary responsibility to the people which elect them: to keep the Australian community safe from harm. The undersigned call for a better approach to deter crime in Australian communities – stronger penalties (especially for repeat offenders), stronger bail regimes, effective youth intervention programs that emphasise responsibility and consequences, and greater police resources for more effective law enforcement and crime prevention.
