Mata - I see that the Gordon Estate has been shut down under the new police powers and that Dubbo police have called in additional police from other areas of NSW to assist. Sounds like you new a new magistrate out there so that they can start putting these troublemakers away. Mob attack on police January 02, 2006 TWO detectives were injured and a police car and another vehicle were torched as a mob of 100 Aboriginal youths attacked police yesterday. One of the officers suffered a suspected broken jaw, cuts and bruises when he was kicked and punched. The attack ended when police in riot gear arrived on the scene. The violence began in Dubbo, in the state's west, about 2am, when two detectives in an unmarked police car stopped a station wagon, which they suspected was stolen. When the officers tried to arrest the 16-year-old behind the wheel, about 100 Aboriginal youths surrounded them before launching the attack. The group torched the new police car and the stolen car, completely destroying both. Police called for back-up and at least 10 more officers were sent in to help. The injured officers were taken to Dubbo Base Hospital, where one was admitted and the other was treated for minor facial injuries, cuts and bruises and was released. "They're lucky they're alive," a police spokeswoman said. Four people, including the 16-year-old driving the car, were arrested and were helping police with inquiries. In a separate incident in Dubbo, a 17-year-old boy broke his wrist after falling from the first-floor balcony of a house in Victoria St he, and two others, were allegedly breaking in to at 6am yesterday. When police arrived, the teenager fell from the balcony and broke his left wrist, a police spokeswoman said. He was taken to Dubbo Base Hospital in a stable condition. Another of the boys was charged with aggravated break and enter and appeared in court yesterday. The violence comes after months of tension between a group of Aboriginal youths and Dubbo locals and police. Locals say children as young as eight are drinking, doing drugs and causing trouble on the troubled Gordon Estate. Many locals believe magistrates who give young, repeat offenders bail are contributing to the problem. One Aboriginal elder said the troublemakers are becoming more confident they will not be punished. "Ninety-eight per cent of the decent, law-abiding Aboriginal people in Dubbo can't stand (what is happening)," one local said.
