    Default Crikey! Racial violence erupts again in Australia

    Dec 12 9:25 AM US/Eastern

    Racial violence has erupted for the second straight day in Sydney, with cars smashed and reports of shots fired just hours after Australian Prime Minister John Howard appealed for calm. Witnesses said "chaos" had broken out in a shopping centre at south Sydney's Cronulla beach late Monday, the scene of mob violence on Sunday, with vehicles damaged and police making arrests as gangs of men roamed the streets

    "People are standing around in shock, just watching," said a reporter for local radio station 2GB. "Every window in some cars has been smashed. Roads have been blocked (by police)."

    One resident, who did not want to be named, told the Australian Associated Press that about 50 cars had swept into the area, disgorging men of Middle Eastern appearance who began trashing every car in sight with baseball bats.

    Reporters said gunshots had been heard near a hotel in Cronulla, but police could not confirm reports that a person had been shot.

    Reporters said gunshots had been heard near a hotel in Cronulla, but police could not confirm reports that a person had been shot.

    The hotel is located opposite North Cronulla beach, the scene of violent attacks Sunday by mobs of local whites targeting men of Middle Eastern appearance.

    For years, we've been having a continuous ongoing problem with Middle Eastern gangs, predominantly young Lebanese men and youths, causing trouble in our society. These range from thugs going out of their way to cause violence, public intimidation through gangs, making derrogatory remarks especially to women, and in some cases gang rapes.

    In short, a minority of bad apples despise this country due to our values we hold and they seem fit to cause havoc for the public. Last weekend's attacks was a provocation that went beyond too far. As a result, it's starting to escalate into vigilante street thug violence the likes we've never seen before.

    I guess I can only blame our state and federal governments for not doing enough to restore order and putting people away in the first place.
