Palaszczuk favours crims over victims of crime

• A future LNP Government will ensure the scales of justice are balanced in favour of victims, rather than offenders
• Annastacia Palaszczuk incapable of keeping Queenslanders safe and has sided with criminals ahead of victims
• Attorney-General Yvette D’Ath couldn’t be bothered to meet with a victim of crime


Shadow Attorney-General Ian Walker today met with victim of crime Janice Keys who was brutally assaulted last year inside her Rockhampton home.

Mr Walker said he was disgusted to learn Ms Keys’ attacker was given a slap on the wrist and sent back out into the community.
“The first rule of government, and any leader, is to keep communities safe – unfortunately that has not happened under Annastacia Palaszczuk,” Mr Walker said.
“This type of incident is not an isolated one, it is happening all across the state, with victims playing second-fiddle to offenders under this Labor Government.
“People are sick to death of the approach taken by Annastacia Palaszczuk with regards to law and order and her inability to keep them safe.
“A future LNP government will ensure the scales of justice are balanced in favour of victims, rather than offenders.”
Mr Walker said he was disappointed, but not surprised, Ms Keys’ request to meet with Attorney-General Yvette D’Ath was rejected.
“Ms D’Ath wasn’t much chop in the federal arena and that certainly has carried over to the state arena,” he said.
“I understand Ms Keys only met with Annastacia Palaszczuk after attending a community meeting, the Premier certainly didn’t go out of her way to meet with her.
“That is pretty gutless in my book – but what else can you expect from Annastacia Palaszczuk?”
Mr Walker said a future LNP government would reverse Annastacia Palaszczuk’s approach to law and order.
“Over the past year, according to QPS data, car theft has increased by 60.9% and unlawful entry by 40.8% across Rockhampton,” he said.
“Our comprehensive plan will include better resourcing and better laws to assist the police and courts, and we will ensure people are safe in their own homes.
“Rockhampton residents will be under no illusion as to the LNP’s stance on law and order ahead of the next election.
“You can rest assured that we won’t be influenced by the Brisbane bleeding heart brigade and we certainly won’t put political interests ahead of keeping Queenslanders safe, unlike Annastacia Palaszczuk.
“Only the LNP will make the streets of Rockhampton safe again.”
