A taskforce of African community leaders set up to help Victoria Police deal with Melbourne’s youth crime problem is yet to choose its members because of tribal divisions, according to the chief commissioner.
The African-Australian Community Taskforce was announced by Victoria Police last month following a spate of crimes involving African youth. It has been charged with providing information to police on emerging issues and hot spots, allowing officers to act swiftly, and establishing a more efficient channel for police to engage with community leaders and receive advice on preventing youth crimes and antisocial behaviour.
Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton today said that although the taskforce had met a few times, it was yet to finalise its membership due to “internal political issues”.
He agreed there was concern growing within Victoria Police that tribal divisions between Dinka and Nuer ethnic groups had caused delays in formally establishing the taskforce.
Anthropologist E.E. Evans-Pritchard had a lot to say in the 1930s about tribal divisions between the tall, skinny Dinka and the tall, skinny Nuer, and the Nuer system of segmentary lineage that efficiently organizes Nuers along the lines of “Me and my brothers against my cousins, me and my cousins against the world.”
… “All I asked was that they provide people from the community that can help us with the issues we’ve had with African offending, because we’ve had significant issues with African-Australian kids blowing up.
Obviously, it’s perfectly logical and inevitable that the primordial strife between Dinka and Nuer warriors in South Sudan spills over into crime and violence in Melbourne, Australia on the other side of the world.
The only solution is that Australia taxpayers must pay to promote Wakandan nationalism. They could start by sending all the Dinka and Nuer youths in Melbourne to free-screenings of “Black Panther.”
I’m mean, what else could Australia possibly do to keep from having more and more Dinka and Nuer crime in Melbourne?
Not let in so many Dinkas and Nuers?
C’mon, get serious.
