    With the gangs, can be done using current legal system. Just apply it firmly thats all it takes. btw, glad to see you are not denying there are Sudanese gangs in Melbourne.

    You obviously don't understand what 'scare quotes' are

    So with the virus you're okay with it killing thousands of people, while in this case, even a few deaths are unacceptable to you. An interesting contrast. And if crime can be eliminated so simply, why is there still crime in Australia?

    Crime can not be eliminated simply but can be minimized. No country in the world managed to eliminate it. And some forms of crime can be minimized more dramatically than others.
    I am Ok with ''virus killing more'' as we can see that execution of policies that is done more professionally - is alone having greater positive impact than restrictiveness!

    Victorian had 1471 cases yesterday. NSW -135!
    Other than initial state of the outbreak (when NSW numbers got high first) - the gap is more than obvious.

    The gap is obvious: 500 deaths in the current outbreak in NSW, but only 270 in Victoria. And it was the bungled lockdown in NSW that started the current Victorian infection. It seems that more restrictive policies in NSW would have saved hundreds of lives.

    it seems to me with all our policies we still have endless cases while NSW cases are going down.

    Today is Nov 1st /2021...Just a Grim Reminder that this is the 20th month of living with da Corona19 Worldwide Pandemic . Here in the United States we have lost 750,000+ .....Locally in Arizona we have lost 21,500+..... Sprout has gather up a few stats for all of u reading this this evenings. Arizona is ranked 5th worse state in the nation when it comes to corona deaths(top 4 states are Cali - New York - Florida - Texas) Maricopa County is Ranked 3rd worse in da nation in corona deaths (LA County in Cali is ranked either #1 or #2 worse)

    Lets see here . . .. As Sprout sees it... Its going to be a spell longer Murrays before Sprout can Recommend Travels to da States brotha. Still Way Way Too Hot for reals.... 1700+ Aussies gone from this Plague is nothing compared to just da state of Arizona where we gots 21,500+ gone n rapidly climbing by 50-100 daily still in da 20th month of this Corona19 Pandemic . Here in Arizona we loose roughly 1500 in just 1 month So Just Keep it up. Keep up da Great Job Australia, For Your Country is Doing Everything Right When it comes to this Fight against da Corona19 Virus.

    On a Lighter Note..... Sprouty has heard thru da grapevine that da passport office is gaining ground here stateside.... Wait time for a New Passport outta here has dropped from 33 months to 5 months on da average...... Somebody Important Musta Read This Blog n Felt Sprouty Pain of Waiting in da Terrible Que n got right on dat log jam........

    Sprout Just Barely Hanging on (ties another knot in it) Reporting once again from da Front lines on this war against da Corona19 virus here in da State of Arizona... Once Again Arizona is #1 state in da whole nation leading da way w new daily avg count of 3500 people catching da Corona19 Delta variant being reported by da state today Nov/5th/2021. Arizona is #1 Hottest Spot in da States when it comes to da Plague.....Don't Even book da flight to here Brotha Murrays for u would be going from da safest zone on earth to da worse where Sprout be on da Front lines working in a Hospital ER/ICU 72 hrs a wk......Its so hot here m8's that its again making national news......

    Sprout would like to take a brief moment to describe how lethal da corona can be once it makes its way into a families inner circle regardless of being Vaxed or Not... Its Been reported locally in in Arizona on ABC News this week of a family whom had a annual family gathering n within 4 days of da gathering all 22 members of da family contracted Corona19 delta virus... another 3 days n 10 outta 22 were in ICU... then within 3 days 5+ outta da 10 died directly of da Corona Virus.... Of These 5 fatalities 3 were fully vaxed n 2 were not vaxed...... :0 a whole family of 22 members catching da Corona n within 10 days 5 died of da virus, 3 of which were fully vaxed.

    So This totally Means that da Corona Virus Does Not Care if your Fully Vaxed or Not, It Will Latch on to ur Lungs either or,Does not matter... So People Ask Sprouty All da Time . .. . What Does Work :? What works is Social Distancing n limiting in door gatherings n Everyone inside or outside Wear a Mask....... #1 Tip is to Wear A MAsk PLZ !!!1 Why Does Everyone in Arizona That Lives n Breathes Republican Red Refuses to Wear A Mask AUGH !!!! WHY !!!! WHY WHY !!!!! Sprout has Lost 3 security guards over mask mandates inside ems private hospital. 2 of them were shot n 1 stabbed n None, Let da Sprout Repeat, None of these incidents were reported to local news media by da local police.... Nope Just Sweep it all under da rug so that way da Hospital can stay outta news media's glaring spotlight.......

    So What is to make of all this news coming outta Sproutys Neck of da woods.....As of Today,Arizona is 60% fully vaxed n Still We Have 15+ - 100+ dying every day here. Arizona is leading da nation with an Alarming 3500 daily avg of new corona cases being reported...Does not help that Arizona is Wide Open for Biz n Always Will be According to da Red Republican Gov.Ducey Whom Prides Emself on Neva Closing Arizona During da Whole Pandemic .... Not 1 Day Was Arizona Closed fully in Lockdown. Look At dat Death Count of 21,157+ in Arizona gone.Mainly due to this States Governor at da Wheel da whole time leaving da Schools even last spring wide open .........SHAME !!!

    Sprout is Hoping n Praying that in da not to distant future that new Merck anti corona virus pill Hits da open market here locally in Arizona where da clinical trails were held n Every Pharmacy has ample supply on hand to handle this high infection rate in Sprouts community. Perhaps then Sprout can Report that finally This Plague is Ending n Sprout can Take time off da Frontlines After a long hard fought war with no Winners At All.......

    Pills brings new hope in the global fight against covid-19

    ... On Thursday, a different front opened up in the battle against covid-19 ó one that was notable for revolving around pills, rather than jabs. Regulators in Britain granted approval to the experimental drug molnupiravir from U.S. pharmaceutical giant Merck, co-developed with Ridgeback Biotherapeutics, marking the first time the promising pill-based treatment for covid-19 had been authorized anywhere in the world.

    Pfizer antiviral pill reduced risk of covid hospitalization and death by 89 percent in high-risk people, company study shows

    The very next morning after this column was originally published, Pfizer announced that its own experimental antiviral drug, called paxlovid, reduced the risk of hospitalization and death by 89 percent in high-risk people infected with the virus and that the company would soon submit it to U.S. regulators. ...

    oh Right Ons !!! Brotha Murrays is on top of da new corona intel coming out on da new Pfizer anti viral/corona pill for Sprout is getting the same intel this week here locally in Arizona.(nov1-7th/2021) Pfizer is reporting on da east coast that his new pill treatment in clinical trials is proving to be 89% effective on keeping corona patients outta da hospitals along w 0 deaths.

    Just Amazing Great News....With These kinda #'s along with da corona shots this Pandemic will be ending soon. Lets be clear . .. . . Sprout isn't saying that da corona virus will be totally gone, but that da Corona Virus will be down to seasonal Influenza Virus levels worldwide. Just Like da Flu, Every Yr you'll be advised to get ur corona shot along with your flu shot... Every Yr if you come down with either or, you'll have da option to get either da Tama-Flu pill treatment or da Corona pill treatment if u catch da virus early on w testing. This is Great News for Da New Corona Pills Stop da Replication of da Virus inside da patients unlike da corona vaccines which to nothing in stopping da spread of da virus(infection load/rate) inside of patients & thus to da public.

    Anti-vaxxers are having to pay a price for their choices, which IMO is a good thing. Also a good thing, their numbers are very small. In this case, less than 100 out of the 12,000+ Qld police force.

    Almost 100 Queensland police officers stood down for refusing COVID-19 jab
    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.
