Sydney Airport Four men were charged in connection with the violence that occurred midday Sunday


09:02 |

Four men have been charged following the brawl at the Qantas domestic air terminal, which began in the terminal's secure area and ended at the public check-in counters. Sydney Airport Four men were charged in connection with the violence that occurred midday Sunday in front of dozens of terrified travelers.The fight erupted in one of the airport's two domestic terminals when a group of suspected gang members was ambushed by another group from a rival gang as they disembarked from a flight.
Witnesses to the fighting said it was brutal."They came running through picking up the big metal barrier poles and swinging them like swords at each other," Naomi Constantine told the ABC. "I saw one of the men lying on the ground and another man came up with a pole and just started smashing it into his head."


State authorities held urgent meetings Monday to consider introducing tougher laws against biker gangs, amid fears of an escalating gang war that has included drive-by shootings and a blast outside a fortified Hell's Angel's clubhouse.New South Wales Premier Nathan Rees announced the state police anti-gang squad would be boosted to 125 members from its current 50 in response to the violence and ordered it to focus on the rising violence between biker gangs.Sen. Bill Heffernan, a senior opposition lawmaker, said the fight suggested there were serious holes in Sydney Airport's security and that a Senate committee should investigate."It doesn't say much for the millions of dollars we have spent on airport security, nor does it say much in the event of a (real) terrorist attack what would happen," Heffernan told Australian Broadcasting Corp. radio.Police said 15 men were involved in the violence, which rampaged from the ground floor up one level to the departures hall before most of the men fled.The four suspects were arrested away from the airport. They were charged with fighting in a public place, but not with any crime connected to causing a death. An investigation was still under way to determine the cause of death of the man killed, police said.Australian Federal Police Commissioner Mick Keelty admitted the violence took them by surprise but said police officers responded quickly to emergency phone calls for help."The police can't be everywhere all the time and this is an event that could have happened anywhere in Australia," Keelty told reporters.Police have not identified the gangs suspected in the violence.
Rees said he would consider new laws to crack down on biker gangs with measures such as banning clubhouses and meetings of more than two or three gang members. Officials likened the measures to counterterrorism laws."These people have got to understand that's not the sort of behavior we tolerate in Australia and we'll be doing whatever we can to give police whatever powers they need to be able to stamp this out," state Police Minister Tony Kelly said.

Keep on with your multicultural agenda and you will turn Australia into downtown LA.Why not bring over more non Europeans/non Christians and give them Ak-47s as they get of the boat.Aha, but don't let the average law bidding Australian have a gun to defend him or herself with.That would be a crime. Yes, A Americans point of view.Your new Government is destroying what it means to be Australian.Soon it won't mean anything more than the word American does now.0!
