It may have something to do with the name of the street? Someone from another OMCG offended by the name?


Another bikie related shooting in Calwell, when are labor going to give the tools to the police to deal with this once and for all. Anti consorting laws are needed to drive this scourge out of Canberra but the Labor government are to weak to implement. Having corresponded with the attorney general on this matter a number of times in the last few years and being assured that the laws are adequate, this is a complete fail! My suburb is now less safe since Labor has been in power. This is the third shooting in Calwell that I am aware of over the last few years.

While the ACT government sit on their hands about OMCGs the man the left hates, Peter Dutton, is doing their job for them.
