Youth crime is increasing – what to do?

There is something strange going on with youth crime in rural and regional Australia. Normally, I treat hysterical rising delinquency claims with a pinch of salt – explicable by an increase in police numbers, or a headline-chasing tabloid, or a right-wing politician.

  1. according to the signed testimonies of 155,000 doctors, scientists and medical workers, and according to all available evidence the covid 19 pandemic is an easily proven and readily quantifiable fraud. Turn off your televisions and dismiss the corrupt australian government for reckless endangerment of the public health, fraud and crimes against the nation

  2. THANK YOU MAX!!!! Finally another clear thinking person!!! C’mon people!!!! Step out of the fear, take your TV media beer goggles OFF and start doing your own research!!

    the QR code is unlawful and a direct breech of the Privacy Act 1988 section 94H. Businesses that coerce or force anyone into electronically signing in or refuse the entry into their business because they do not consent to signing in can be held personally liable and charged with the following:

    Imprisonment for 5 years OR fined $5000

    Small businesses will be extinct if this unlawful contact tracing continues especially now that the vaccines are being distributed and we can expect to see a rise in cases linked back directly to the vaccines.

    This COVID STOPS when the people UNITE and say ENOUGH!!!

    Otherwise get used to the idea of yearly covid jabs, continual lockdowns, living in fear, breathing in shitty air through a useless mask and the testing and the vaccine passports and the dictatorship people because this shit won’t end until WE make it end.

  3. “ This COVID STOPS when the people UNITE and say ENOUGH!!!”

    Who would have thought that this is all it would take – and here’s me thinking pathogens don’t care what humans think or want.

    Thant you Dr Layla … and your qualifications are?
