    Default Overnight violence in Melbourne and Sydney

    WTF happened in Melbourne and Sydney last night!?

    I was just shocked to see such big brawls. They haven't really said too much about it all yet but I hope we find out more and find out who these morons were who started it all off.

    I read the news as well, seems like members of two teen gangs were involved and it was pre-planned

    I saw some things about it. Reading stuff like that makes me all the more confident in my choice to move my kids far away from the city. It seems so scary lately

    Rural areas have their own problems. Like ice. It is a big concern in rural NSW.

    The country town I lived in growing up regularly had violence. It was fuelled by alcohol mainly.

    It isn't just big cities. It is everywhere.

We don't have of that here.
    I'm busting to know what town it is!
