“I’m pretty confident that based on intelligence that we will be in a position of zero growth in the next crime stats, if not negative,” she said.
“You will probably hold that against me if it doesn’t happen but I’m pretty confident talking to local police that that is the situation, that we’re going to continue this downward trend.”
What Police Minister Lisa Neville is not telling us as she hides behind twisted stats is that gang crime specifically those by African immigrant and refugees are on the rise, home invasions and carjacking are offset by falling rates in other nonrelated crimes.
Using the stats as a whole is a good way to hide that Melbourne has a problem with African gang crime.
As crime stats reveal yet another rise in carjackings, a man has had his Citroen stolen in Lalor.
