Yet another violent carjacking under Daniel Andrews

Reports today that a woman has been the victim of another violent carjacking in broad daylight is yet more evidence that Daniel Andrews’ soft approach to justice is endangering Victorians.

Despite this violent crime wave with carjackings up 80%, Daniel Andrews has cut frontline police numbers and allowed police stations to close or reduce their operational hours.

Victorians are getting sick and tired of waking to yet another story about criminals running rampant in our streets following the weakening of our justice system by Daniel Andrews.

The Liberal Nationals were first to propose a separate carjacking offence in Victoria which was passed in the Upper House but then rejected by Daniel Andrews, Labor and the Greens and would be law now but for Daniel Andrews’ decision.

Melbourne is caught in the grip of a violent crime wave because Daniel Andrews is too weak to properly manage law and order.

Police stations with reduced counter services:

  • Endeavour Hills
  • Burwood
  • Ashburton
  • Carrum Downs
  • Mt Waverley
  • Craigieburn
  • Epping
  • Waurn Ponds
  • Whitfield
  • Tatura
  • Somerville
  • Reservoir
  • Pakenham
  • Mooroolbark
  • Lakes Entrance
  • The closure of Nunawading
