A 92 year old woman is assaulted while in bed at night in her own home. I am not sure of the mentality of someone who would punch a 92 year old woman home alone in her bed.
Her home has been broken into six times in a short period, the last time being just a few days before, Saturday night. Ok, she does not live in the poshest of areas, but no matter. She has lived in her house for fifty years. What must it be like to live in a house for fifty years and reach the age of ninety two and then be punched up in your own bed by an intruder after suffering five previous break ins in a short time?
Who is there to protect this person? Was she a drug dealer when she was younger? Did she breed scum sons? Is there some reason why she should suffer like this? I don't know.
But at her age, this should not happen.
Clearly she does not have the protection of Victoria's police force. I guess she wouldn't get enough for her Housing Commission house to move to a little flat in Brighton where the police force would actually do something if the same happened, not that it would in Brighton. She would be more likely to die and no one know about it until the postie noticed a pile up of letters.
Commissioner Nixon, I really think you ought to have a good look at the Victorian Police Force in the area where she lives. It is not right and it is clear that no resources were devoted to the case. The Victorian Police cannot even protect a ninety two year old woman. Shame.
