In Melbourne people are beaten up every weekend, some seriously, some even die.
The authorities threaten to close some nightclubs down but never do, they now even say they'll make racial violence attract greater penalties, why I don't know , violence is violence.
What they don't do it go the the root of the problem, alcohol, they do not enforce laws that prevent premises serving drunks. People are allowed to roam the streets in packs drunk and it's not right.
If someone is drunk in a club their solution is to throw them out on the street, where they can take it out on the first person they see.
I believe the real problem of controlling alcohol abuse in public is not being addressed because politicians are too weak and pander to the alcohol industry.
They just leave it to the police and hospitals to clean up the mess.
