Heath Thomas Wynne will be squaring up with the notorious Bradley Pendragon as both are "experts in their fields !"
Bradley can pump up Heath from behind while Heath does a blowjob on Bradley !
Perpaduan bin Rahman on Jun 19, 2022:
That Atwell woman will be suffering trauma for a long time along with serious injuries to her face. She was attacked in her own home for nothing while Heath Thomas Wynne robbed her house. All too common & appears to be getting worse. The Saudi Law is the best law for persons like Heath Thomas Wynne. Cut off both his hands for what he did to that woman plus robbing her house. Torture Heath brutally until he cannot even stand up. Heath will learn from this. Burn his genitals if the need be. Or, if not, then jail him up until he is 80.

Yet another violent home invasion & attacks on a lone woman by offenders who deserve the death penalty or brutal torture.
Violence towards women is NOT accepted & we have Aboriginal males that attacked, seriously injured & robbed a woman in Halcyon Way, Atwell. Machine gun these offenders as that will put a stop to further offending.

According to crime stats i was suprised at some of the safer versus non safer suburbs . sadly you arent safe anywhere after a certain time of the night .according to stats some safest suburbs areas follows:daglish, floreat, joondalup, greenwood, warwick, leeming , dalkeith, city beach,hillarys,burns beach, auburn grove, subiaco and karrinyup.

If your on a bifdget bes

I live here and feel safe but I live in the Joondalup area and I heard Armadale is dangerous.

Depends where you go, generally if your in the suburbs it's fairly safe as long as you use common sense and stay away from dodgy people. Only go to the busy places in the city or people where there are lots of people around. There are lots of dodgy people around the quite streets of Perth, especially at night.

Perth is a hole. Perth is full of crime violence drugs gangs anti social behaviour graffiti vandalism and homeless people. It has gotten very bad. There are a lot of angry violent aggressive people here and there are a lot of meth addicts here and there are a lot of homeless people here. Everytime I go out here I have to constantly be on guard and I have to constantly watch my back. It is not a good city to live in and it is not a safe city to live in. I don't want to raise my children here. When I can I am going to immigrate and go live in Tokyo Japan with my future wife and children and I will live there with my future wife and children and I will raise my children there.

The New Year has just begun & a 90 year old couple in South Lake had their power turned off before 3 teen thugs broke in, bashed the elderly couple & robbed them. Old & frail, what chance did the couple have against their attackers ? Rather than call the attack cowardly, brazen, disgusting etc.etc., those 3 perpetrators ought to be bashed up & have their fingers broken for attacking that aged & frail couple.
Western Australian Government on Nov 11, 2020:
"At a time when we are facing unparalled challenges, I find instances of racism in our community to be repugnant.

In a situation where most Western Australians are pulling together to support each other, it has become clear that some people have used the COVID-19 pandemic as an opportunity to create division and hatred.

It may be only a few instances, but the impact is felt widely and deeply.

I am sure that we have all seen reports of students being evicted from their homes, of racist graffiti, banners and slogans, of innocent Western Australians of Chinese and Asian backgrounds being threatened or vilified.

This is criminal behaviour and completely unacceptable in our society.

The Government of Western Australia strongly condemns all forms of racism, discrimination and harassment and has zero tolerance for such acts of hatred.

As a State we are acting swiftly and decisively on these issues, with police, local governments and communities working together to respond immediately to these deplorable offences.

Under this State's Criminal Code, racial vilification carries a maximum penalty of 14 years imprisonment.

Anyone engaging in this sort of behaviour will be met with the full force of the law.

Unity and the rejection of discrimination and hatred are critical if we are to succeed in facing the immense challenges before us.

Western Australia is a proudly multicultural State that embraces cultural diversity and community harmony. This is our strength, this is our resilience, and this is what will see us through.

We are all in this together and I have nothing but praise and respect for the vast majority of Western Australians who are supporting each other with compassion and understanding.

I am sure I speak on behalf of all members of the Western Australian Parliament in strongly condemning these appalling acts of racism."

All working age & fit Aboriginals should be in full time employment.

Jaylen Denny Dimer will probably get 5 years because of BLM crap.
Anon. on Jul 27, 2020:
Giuseppe Raco's family will never see him again. And hopefully, Jaylen Denny Dimer will be out in 2060 as Dimer deserves to be in prison for 40 years. Dimer will be on the timer then, private parts and all !

What planet are you on. You may not have witnessed a serious crime yourself. To say Perth is extremely safe you are living under a rock. Crime is abundant throughout. Only have to turn tv on and watch the news. Elderly women bashed and raped not on a daily basis still it happens way to often elderly people targeted robbed and bashed in their own homes as well as in the streets outside shops. Wake up Nathan. What iv just said has and does happen way to much. In Perth You a clown. To say what you have.
Alu Tamrin on Sep 23, 2019:
Not crime at all. Those 2 arseholes at Curtin Uni. yelling racist remarks at African American & Asian students should be sucking on each other's genitals and fucking each other right in front of the whole of Curtin University ! Followed by a quick masturbation on stage by each of those two idiots.
Bogans are easy prey on Jul 27, 2019:
@Dirka Dirka on Jul 26, 2019

Lots of dumb bogans telling their local skin colored doctors, engineers, teachers, lawyers, and their boss to go home. You Bogans are free to start hiding once your realize it. Off ya go, go on.

May 10, 2019. At about 1.40 am, an elderly 91 year old had his home broken into in East Perth by 4 teens.
One was armed with a weapon. The old man was robbed. So, that's that, is it ? They can just break into & attack anybody. Not just anybody. Indonesians, Malaysian Bumiputeras, Vietnamese, Thais, etc. would have broken the bones of those teens. Perhaps if the residents were North Koreans, those teens would have been shot in the genitals & head. No questions asked. That's that !
Abdul Hamid bin Sa'ad on Apr 27, 2019:
Friday 27 April 2019 at 1.45 am(Mt. Lawley). Violent home intruder dies after being stabbed.
Excellent job & well done ! Any person that violates someone's house with the intent of assault & robbery, deserves to die. In Indonesia, burglars get their limbs hacked/broken off as Indonesian law permits it.
In Kuwait, Bahrain, Dubai, Malaysia etc. etc., the same applies. If one has a gun, take aim at that burglar's genital region & fire away ! Intruders must be taught a lesson. If they get injured very seriously, its just too bad. They asked for it. They break into an Islam house because they want to die !!
Perpaduan bin Ahmad Najib on Jan 02, 2019:
Victims of brutal bashing, Karen Bland & her 26 year old daughter, who were out to celebrate the New Year like everyone else. Merely imprisoning the men responsible isn't sufficient. As they have used full physical force on Karen Bland, they should seriously have their arms blown off. This is proper law that will ensure that such dogs cannot just go around hitting anyone. Let us see these types of men doing that to the Taliban !
Before they know it, the Taliban will just machine gun them up. Men who go around bashing up women & children should be shot at point blank range in their arms & legs with explosive bullets. Crime will then spiral downwards very quickly. What is needed is to bring crime to its knees. The present anti crime laws here are too weak and offenders just get away with it. Indonesian anti crime laws are efficient. In Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, such offenders as above get torn apart by the public.

Living in Perth from last 9 years, Overall very good city, safe, good attractions, LESS POPULATED (compare to sydney and mel). only problem is aborignals. they are painting the bad picture of this beautiful city in eyes of tourists. People generally are very good as long as they are sobber.
Nazeem Al Kadir on Oct 22, 2018:
Iranian tourist bashed over cigarettes at Cottesloe Beach, W.A. ? The offenders WILL be hunted down & their limbs cut off. In accordance with Hudud Law of Islam.
Mutalib Haji Zain on Sep 06, 2018:
Aboriginal youth should be in full time employment, rather than masturbating & breaking into properties.
The Government must enforce all young & fit Aboriginals into work.
Firdaus bin Razak on Jul 04, 2018:
In fact, young Aboriginal male offenders are on an offers list from Hamas to undergo training and to work for them. Islam decoys are observing Aboriginal males in the 18 to 25 year age group to find the fit ones to start training and jobs. A very good initiative to keep Aboriginals off crime and into jobs.

It's is an awesome city to live in but you need to STOP USING FOSSIL FUELS
Habadu Alpandi on Jun 13, 2018:
Its time that the law is taken into one's hands, concerning burglars entering properties. If a thief has to be shot, shoot him in the privates ! Its either getting attacked or using the gun to shoot first. Perhaps the Indonesian Army could station some troops in Perth to combat severe crime.
