Smash up the bones of any man if he attacks women. Break up the rib cage, twist his arms off and break his jaw. All that should fix him up. If that does not work, get a pistol & blast his genitals off !

That bastard who bashed & sexually attacked a 22 year old woman in Melbourne 2013 should be looking over his shoulder for even worse that's coming to him. He will have a concentrated sulphuric acid "shower" at the end !
First will be the removal of his genitals, which will be forced down his throat. Next, his wrists will be completely broken. As he injured that woman in the head, he will have his head drilled. Next on the menu will be the breaking of his legs, followed by the sulfuric acid bath !

Looks like everyone is going to live in fear of home invaders ! No such thing. Even if a violent thug has to be taught a lesson, just do it. Shoot him in his genitals. Smash his head up with a steel bar if he goes too far. And even break his legs really good and see if he will re offend ! One of the best confrontations a thief can have is with a Rottweiler, a German Shepherd or a Mastiff ! Let the dogs out and watch the show ! Imagine that burglar getting bitten in his private parts, his legs & face. The thief forces open the door, you open up his head !

I moved here in October 2017, and I've already had to call the cops 6 times since arriving. I've been followed and harassed three times. Twice I was chased by guys on a bike, another on foot. Melbourne isn't super dangerous, but I'm still surprised at how unsafe I feel.

All the security cameras will not stop a determined burglar from breaking in. The best methods(employed in countries like Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia etc.) are to seriously injure an offender by bashing him up very hard and perhaps even breaking his arms & legs. He is certain not to re offend after that ! That poor Queensland tradie(tradu) was bashed up by 13 people but that tradie caused no offence. Indonesians do bash home intruders & burglars up real hard.

That racist thug at a Coles supermarket, who unleashed foul words at an innocent Asian woman for no reason, will be watched by our brothers in Islam. If he is found, his head will be blown off. Thats guaranteed so that troublemakers will be kept off the streets. That man should buy a ticket & fly out of Melbourne if he wants to live.

You guys are mad or what?! Is there really someone that considers Melbourne as a dangerous city??!? C'moooon.... It's a huge city, of course that there're robbery, violence, etc, etc, but even in the smallest village in the world you'll have it...
Melbourne's safe, brilliant and very special! Don't give your opinion if you have nothing to compare with...
#Daniel Andrews on Jan 08, 2018 :
Most dangerous major city in Australia, crime rapidly increasing in recent years. Police take 1-3 hours to turn up in this place.
#Anonymous on Nov 01, 2017 :
Safe city, never felt threatened.. maybe a bit worried in the early hours of the morning at a nightclub or something. But, during the day - 100% safe. Stay out of suburbs such as Dandenong, Frankston, Broadmeadows, Coburg, etc.. and you'll be fine. Inner city and close suburbs are safe. Lived here for 5 years.
#Anonymous on Oct 27, 2017 :
I've lived in Melbourne my whole entire life and I find it quite safe, there are rarely crimes committed in the inner city as it is often crowded even in the middle of the night therefore criminals are too afraid to commit crimes as there would be many, many witnesses. Although there is quite a bit of petty crime in areas with less of a population. I will conclude by saying that Melbourne is safe as long as you stay in areas you're familiar with and areas that are well populated

I am soon moving to Melbourne but it feels that property rents are very high :(
#Dean Farrell on Sep 11, 2015 :
I've been living in Melbourne for 25 yrs and its a very safe city. The people are friendly and helpful. Like every city in the world there are occasional incidents that happen but I feel safe walking just about anywhere.

Lived in Melbourne for 8 years including a stint in CBD. wanded around late at night many many nights including the red light district, caught last Train to suburbs and Never ever had any trouble or seen anything other than a few drunks you would see in any city. I feel completely safe in Melbourne. There is not a reason in the world to feel unsafe day or night. I feel safer in Melbourne than I do in my parents country hometown.
