Hate crimes stain our streets
There appears to be regular assault of transvestite sex workers by young suburban guys coming in to town for the purpose, before having their night out. I was 'lucky' enough to witness one of these vicious assaults and was able to intervene and stop it.
Unfortunately this does not seems to have been an isolated incident. I have reported this in The City News, here and here. Personally I am offended by the amount of police resources dedicated to dragging people out of pubs or off the street and searching them because a sniffer dog may have detected some cannabis or ecstasy, while there seems little protection from the really serious violent crime like these assaults, and the shootings and muggings that regularly put Kings Cross in the news.
