What do you mean by "American" crime? I've lived in the states for decades and have never seen any "American" crime? Not even in New york city.
Only place I experience crime was in Adelaide when a gang of aboriginals broke into where I lived and broke into a few apartments. Of course, I would not go around calling it "Aboriginal" crime or make blnket statements about an entire group of people... cause tht would be ignorant.

1. I meant guns
2. It is Aboriginal crime, even the police ask what colour the offenders are before they send out squad cars (I live in a high Aboriginal area and they send more police if the offenders are Aboriginal).

Ive never owned a gun nor know anybody who has one.
Since youve never lived in the states, your opinion on the US is based on ignorance.

NoT every aboriginal person is a criminal, to label them all as such.. Words cant describe...

Typical kiwi ignorance?

Also to say the crrime i experienced typical aboriginal, is racist. They were just people who committed a crime.
Then SAPOL are racist too, as is Operation Mandrake...and the rest of the population of Adelaide (which is multicultural, by the way).


ADELAIDE has reacted with justifiable alarm at revelations of a gang of lawless Aboriginal youths who have terrorised the city for more than three years.



The gang's latest depravity was a four-hour crime spree on Monday.
In this rampage, a group of students was threatened with hunting knives, a police car was pelted with hammers and an off-duty taxi driver's car was hit at high speed by a stolen car, injuring the driver.
With unusual alacrity, police have detailed the activities of a gang of about 50 mostly Aboriginal youths, loosely centred around five families.

Example? The beautiful, historic Flinders St Railway Station...a heritage building no less. Go into the ladies toilets and you will find **** encrusted walls which haven't been washed since 1900. THIS IS THE PRIDE OF THE CITY! and there is YEARS old graffiti, phone numbers, unidentifiable substances smeared everywhere. Totally disgusting.

I was in Melbourne in Sept and was standing at the entrance to the underground, watching as some pigeons and fluffy marsupials were scurrying around...I then realised that the marsupials were good old fashioned RATS about the size of cats....tame as can be, right in the middle of one of the busiest streets of Melbourne. I turned to the next available person as I simply could not believe my eyes...a girl was walking past and said "that's nothing, they're small".

You never see such things in Adelaide. We clean our valued buildings and eliminate vermin.
