Protest of shooting at Kings Cross
About 50 people have yelled abuse at police outside NSW parliament in protest at the shooting of two youths at Kings Cross. Officers opened fire on a car allegedly stolen and driven in the nightclub district on Saturday morning after the 14-year-old mounted the kerb and hit two pedestrians.
The Two Murrays spoke with Robin Napper, a Forensic Crime Investigator and former NSW Police Officer to look at what motivates people to commit such violent crimes.

I support the police 100% and I think any normal child & adult would agree with that. The rest that appose are either criminals or junkies.
Oh and regarding the Police officer who was stabbed with a screw driver in Mt. Druitt, well the officer should have pulled out his gun and shot him him too!! I'm so sick to death of these pretend gangsters who team up at nights creating heel on earth. It's time the police walked right into the very bed that you sleep on THAT WE PAY FOR! walk into your room and beat the sh@! out of you and throw you in jail. I don't care how old you are.
Law is the law and it was designed to protect the inncocent.Ricky Tuesday 24 April, 2012 - 4:42 PM
Why wouldn't these "protesters" protest against the criminals that tried to kill the pedestrians? What a Lovely lot!David T. Tuesday 24 April, 2012 - 4:33 PM
What the hell?
What were the police meant to do, allow these idiots to mow everyone down in their stolen car?
The supposed innocent kid who was shot, has had 500 altercations with the police previously. YES 500!
He is NO sweet innocent little boy, but a hardnosed streetwise criminal, likewise his mates.
What the hell were these boys doing at 4am, driving a stolen car in Kings Cross?
Where the hell are their families & what responsibility do they bloody take?
Would it have been BETTER for the bleeding hearts, if these little shits had killed the INNOCENT pedestrian captured under the car after these idiots had mounted the footpath & also quite possibly killed many others in the crowd?
The police act to protect the public & put their lives on the line & need our support, NOT condemnation.
They had to react in a split second to prevent an absolute carnage occurring by the idiots in the car.
Who knows what they were ON, Ratsack, Bleach concoctions or any number of drugs & alcohol.
Being a parent you have responsibilities & your children need to be taught about respect & their own responsibilities & about consequences.
This is NOT about roughing up aboriginals, or little kids stealing an apple of the neighbours tree, but serious criminal behaviour by 14 to 24 year olds that were out of control, that were prepared to do anything.
The boys in that car AND their useless parents should have the book thrown at them, certainly NOT the dam police.Another Proud Aussie Tuesday 24 April, 2012 - 3:58 PM
I don't care if Jesus was driving the car... you want to kill innocent people - then be prepared to be killed.bobby Tuesday 24 April, 2012 - 3:50 PM
I believe the good police may very well of saved the lives of quite a few innocent people. The rest is elementary! I say well done to these "active police" involved here, keep up your good work, we are behind you all the way. In the past I have rightly criticized our soft, invisible policing, however, regrettably, evidently our embattled police are damned if they do and damned if they don't! Lets get behind those active police and get our Sydney streets back and the lost respect for the current frightened "police force".Claudette Tuesday 24 April, 2012 - 3:48 PM
