Zed concerned by rising assaults

johnboy 14 May 2013 5

Zed Seselja is making noise about the worrying side of the latest crime statistics:

“Whilst there have been improvements in some areas there are still significant areas of concern that need to be addressed. I am particularly concerned about the rise of violent offences in our community,” Mr Seselja said today.

“In recent months we have seen some very public assaults where victims have needed hospitalisation, including the alleged stabbing at the Belconnen bus interchange and the assault at Erindale McDonald’s.

“Both incidents occurred in front of other members of the community, causing very distressing memories for them to now deal with.

“These sorts of incidents have no place in our city and we should be doing all we can to prevent them. The ACT Government needs to outline what strategies they will put in place to reduce the number of violent assaults,” Mr Seselja concluded.

This has happened since Zed has decided to desert his constituency for greener pastures?
Clearly his constituents are beside themselves and are taking out their despair on anyone in reach.

You mean, like in Belco and Tuggers…?

I’m liking the logic: stop putting people where crimes occur to lower crime rates! That’s why there’s so few muggings in the Simpson Desert! Hahaha!

Worse still is Zed the only one picking up on these issues?

While Katy continues for push for higher density housing in the same area’s where these assaults are happening…

It’s hard to take Zed seriously, he gets his MLA salary during the week and then campaigns for his new job on the weekends.

Is it a crime to work 7 days a week then?
