No idea what any of these commnents are talking about, I have lived here for 18 years and never seen any form of crime ever. The worst thing that's happened to me is my house being egged on halloween a couple years ago. Literally feel safe going anywhere in Brisbane, yeah there is a bit of youth crime but that's just anywhere. Nothing to worry about if you're thinking of moving here, never ever felt unsafe anywhere in Brisbane.

All major cities in Australia have become dangerous crime ridden drug ridden shitholes. Brisbane is one of the worst cities in Australia for crime and drugs.

I will admit though on the news there has been a rising number of cases of rape in the city.
MermaidQueen62 on Oct 05, 2021:
Forest Lake and Ripley are just suburbs on the outside of the city, they have plenty of space and almost everyone lives in houses. There is a problem at least in Forest Lake with robberies and break-ins, but that doesn’t make it a slum.
MermaidQueen62 on Oct 05, 2021:
Zachary McKean’s comment on Forest lake and Riply being slums are definitely not true. I live in Forest Lake, and can safely say that we have a happy community, beautiful wildlife and no one under the poverty line.
Zachary McKean on Mar 31, 2021:
Horrible city, so many slums like Ripley and Forest Lake. YUCK but hey don't let that stop people moving there because they are so gullible they will believe anything a glossy brochure says, they then regret it and are too cowardly to admit their mistake.

Aboriginal males must get jobs & stay in a job. Should/if they resort to serious burglaries, their genitals will get smashed in !

Basically half of the comments with Arabic names give fake comments about Brisbane. Like seriously, who writes stupid BS like this?

@Muhamad Ismail Zakariah: You must be one, insane individual, you know that? Seriously, go back to where you came from instead of writing stupid stuff like this.

That dumb fucked arsehole tradie, refusing to move for a pregnant woman on a Brisbane commuter train. Probably masturbates in the toilet & covers up his cock hoping nobody notices ! In North Korea, both his feet would be blown off by guards for such behaviour. That tradie will be on his hands & knees, begging the Great Leader to spare his life !

i was gang raped in an ally, had to bite one of the cunts nuts off. death to the west. me and the boys pulling up to the target toilet
Hadad bin Hamdan on Oct 13, 2018:
Even Aboriginal males will get bullets fired into their private parts if they are caught breaking into properties if caught. This is an Indonesian Army tactic.

What about the home of 4 year old cancer patient, Adison Mitchell ? Thieves broke in & ransacked the house.
Thieves do not deserve any respect. They even attack helpless victims in a home. This is why ISIS is an excellent medicine for all types of intruders & burglars. They will slice off a burglar's head before he tries to steal anything. Yes, Brisbane must be kept safe and all other Australian cities & towns. Burglar torture should become the norm.If Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Kuwait etc. etc. deal severely with intruders, Australia can do the same. Once a violent thief gets his limbs & face smashed up, he will learn a lesson for life. If Adison Mitchell had been at home at that time, those thieves could have attacked him. No one should be afraid of any burglar. Use a loaded shotgun & blast him up if it comes to that. Blow that thief up.
