Youth Jail Riots Out of Control

With violent riots now happening on an almost weekly basis, it is clear that the Minister for Children Jenny Mikakos is not up to her job and Daniel Andrews needs to step in and fix this mess.

Too many Victorians are already living in fear because the Andrews Government won’t take action against violent youth gangs and now those few offenders that are taken off the streets are making a mockery of the detention system.

Daniel Andrews and Jenny Mikakos need to stop being apologists for violent behaviour by repeat offenders and take back control of our justice system.

Victorians will be right to be worried about what happens when these violent youth offenders are released back out into the community as hardened offenders with even less respect for the law.

Daniel Andrews’ soft approach on law and order is ripping our communities apart.
