Unshackling The Judiciary: Why Youth Crime Continues To Torture Queensland

Queensland has the toughest laws in the country surrounding youth crime, but communities are demanding for more action to be done.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk continues to defend the state’s response to the youth crime crisis after three people were killed in a car crash earlier this week involving a stolen Mercedes allegedly driven by a 13-year-old boy.

“Both sides of politics voted for these stronger laws. They are the strongest laws in Australia that have been put in place,” Ms Palaszczuk said.

“They will take time to come into effect … we are throwing a lot of money at this as well – over $1.3 billion dollars.

Opposition Liberal National leader David Crisafulli told Brisbane’s Stav, Abby and Matt yesterday that Queenslanders demand more change on youth justice.

“We need to get serious about early intervention,” he said.

“Let’s try and turn kids around before they’re holding a knife at your door and before they’re ramming a police car.”
