This was very naughty of him. Noisy motorbikes are a roadworthy matter and certainly up for policing by VicPol. A police officer should pull over a vehicle they suspect to be in breach of noise limits and order them to attend the EPA for a noise check. What I am annoyed about is that a blind eye is turned to all these noisy motor bikes that ride around and the offenders not policed at all by VicPol. The noisy bikies are a law unto themselves.
After 9/11 all rubbish bins were removed from outside the St Kilda Road Police Station. The result was litter of cigarette butts everywhere. It was a long time before cigarette butt bins were installed.
When the motor bikes were at their worst, R came up with the theory that they were 'buzzing' the police station. I think he may have correct. Bikies and the police had been much in the news of late. As the police have removed fortifications at bikie club houses, the police have been fortifying their own buildings.
A week or so ago I noticed the door to police station car park was not open during the day. It is normally open during the day with a guard inside. It is now locked all day and only opened as required.
Over the past year or so extra external lighting and cameras have been installed. It seemed wasteful to me as the police are supposed to move out of the building soon.
And then this. I couldn't believe it. They have barricaded their own easy street parking at 412 St Kilda Road.
I think it is very clear that police feel under threat, and who else but from bikies? Of course if they enforced noise laws, there would be barely a bikie on the road. That is all they have to do. There is no need for absurd laws such as have been enacted in Queensland and other states. Enforce the existing laws and the bikies will be harassed off the roads. Too easy.
Closed car park. I did not really frame the photos. It was a quick snap as I was moving. There are so many cctv lens on the building.
St Kilda Road barricades. Are we living in 70s Belfast?
Bowen Crescent. It is not even Police Headquarters, although the media say it is at times.

If I disappear without explanation, you can assume that it was an extra big bomb that went off. It may be the actions of bikies at the police station or Moslems at the synagogue. Lordy, threats in all directions.
