Yes Retro, you’re correct. There have been Car-B-Qs in Oaks Estate and surrounds every couple of weeks for many months now. The 2017 crime stats show a jump in arson and car thefts, but *strangely* the ACT Policing crime stats webpage seems to have an *error* for the 2018 results. Take a look.

Even weirder is that when cars get torched now, the wrecks disappear by dawn or mid-morning. Almost as if the gubmint are working harder (for once) to hide what’s ramping up, hoping nobody notices…
