certainly we have an issue we have an issue with our youth in the state but i believe we can timing that issue. everybody welcome to you know it tell me who worked before so where detective acting inspector child is briefing her team before another night out on patrol so just be careful that you don't get tied up with other job so you are specifically to respond to any higher being they're part of a dedicated task force tackling youth crime in melbourne's west so the way we task force came about as a result of the evolution of the home invasion offense and carjacking and breeze that was saying being committed by multiple. people born in sudan make up zero point one percent of victoria's population but account for one percent of the state's alleged criminal offenders. young sudanese males
are overrepresented insurgent violent crimes allegedly committing close to ten percent of aggravated robbery in terms of numbers overall numbers for that hard crime. high impact crime the numbers are quite small when you look at youth crime in particular we have the second lowest crime rate in a stronger productivity commission measures victoria now as the most fearful state in the nation why are people feeling so scared if crime is dropping yeah i think that's really interesting one and certainly you know one of the one of the things that victoria police and the cumi really need to focus on. to people have to be a cipher have to feel sayf so there's a lot of perception issues i think that we need to deal with as well.
are all the bodies brought aboard. the. nineteen year old a dean came to australia from south sudan with his brother when he was just three. he's not seen his mom or dad since. i had to grow up myself and i had to learn to figure out how to become a memo soft. stuff. you know go out. and i will support the point. he has a photo of his mom on his phone screensaver and dreams of going to visit her in south sudan. our government there is here for what i want to do today for. the living in the hallways of the city. and deems friend arrow has
five brothers and sisters he says his mum is worried for him. doesn't even know what i think anymore like i can tell her all the things in the world but she's a stay at home mom or she does believe what the news says. she also knows that us like whoa these kids are out of control she can't even trust me because whatever i say you know channel seven will say otherwise for through the streets so it's like she doesn't know what to say. a demon arrow have started a music label called sixty six records arrow is one of the managers and dean an aspiring rapper. six records with the firsts well we think the first black own label you know been in australia. we just want to be the first ones to make it you
know i don't know anyone did that on the ferrari here in nova i don't know anyone with a mansion you know why can't there be me. turn back. to . the number one. thing. since the whole apex thing being on the news. and i came in get a job and care canada put i can have all the qualifications in the world but if i pull up to the interview and i'm sitting nice site we say why is this guy maybe we should you know be more cautious and just you know probably transport you know people would rather stand from flynn the street today knowing than sitting next to me you know i get followed around in this goes restore. like i'm stealing groceries you know
i don't know in school or try to tell me i couldn't hang out with a group of more than four people because of the look i would doing something on my . so they basically tell americans live because i'm black is with the time. the members of sixty six records are acutely aware of how many see them and they play up to that image. already already is what was. in this video they mock the commercial media's coverage of african gangs while they jump around with knobs and rap about committing crime when they don't you know wish we felt like we was god it was pretty good that you. miss the stars here's a little bit of trouble we would be child and money to door tell the decision was
made for the public ok do we just know he was playing the first song on my voice they put videos out that are certainly anti establishment anti police and promoted follows kill kill was struck with that but we. can you understand why the place would look at those lyrics to look at that music and be worried about it the reason we made the video was to profit off this fear basically partly just we just some young kid being creative like it's like a movie to us you know it was i we made our own movie but we're getting crucified for basically. i don't know what i can say what i can do to make the public believe me when i say i'm not you know i'm not crazy i'm not a criminal what can i save if that's already the perception have and you don't want to speak to me or kind of said.
throughout these tensions have been building police have been under increasing pressure to be seen to act. you know dozens of teenagers may have a pot in tieless hill for a planned finds between two teenage girls. last year to. tell us what you know about the truth of what happened at table sale. you know love the nude. picture the video something happened it was like just so. teenagers being stupid essentially right. we're not going. to. close social media i want to live in areas like that and went to see what happened. miley when i first woke up
it was the fear a lot more could happen with the kids because i was at many of them. david driskell lives around the corner from the park. i do always criminal acts and then you see on the news and all that that i get away with it what do i get a while the african gangs here the government cancels and the police say they're not here they are here and people varies and so. i think what we've seen are certainly what elements of what i would call moral panic where saying headlines and reporting that exacerbates a problem and and report reporting on things that we're not necessarily saying so that causes us some concern certainly when you rode social media and other reporting platforms it's driving community yanks and you know people are saying
african crime everywhere which is not necessarily because a place helicopter and the riot squad book old. media reports that one hundred african youths were there that night police say the number was closer to thirty. can you say then that the place overreacted i mean was it the place presence that actually exacerbated the community's fear it certainly contributed to it there were many residents who lived there in that area who were fee for for them for their safety their own and that's the challenge for so we go large numbers of place seem to execute their powers and our responsibilities that the balance of forces in you then exacerbate that that feeling over the perception.
in september sixty six records held their official launch party i think is so much a hotel in kabul and. it was one of the biggest. not for young south sudanese people old. and in the current climate both place and sixty six records were on high alert which we had legal advisors at the show and outside the show i want the police about obviously the man of people we spit to come and. let us john put out a statement telling the crowd to not give the public and the police what they wanted is a sudanese kids fighting and. the police had met several times with sixty six records and the venue to discuss security they had
concerns about some of the people attending tyson was there as a trained legal observer to try and make sure there was no trouble. on the stairs as one of the performers the star right. this is amazing in seeing people small people people dance. this is a crowd. but at around two thirty am once the main performance was over a fight broke out. some of the prance inside right and then their friends went to defend them was like all the eyes of a bunch of the lodge of course my cousin the subway that right in the dutch escalated. one that tried to break it up we've opened up. to a hundred people cause my ham and collingwood to a violent brawl broke out by a group of youths.
so things went well taken outside and those guys were. beginning to fight with the other group. but they were outnumbered so one of their friends got into his car. and screaming at people move get off you know get off the road is the right people start getting off the left to the left side there's still a good people the i see this guy come drive like into the group of people right. now hit the crowd. and nineteen year old south sudanese man faces multiple charges. hammers eighteen year old cousin was badly injured his leg was like to amputated. it is
a real bright young kid you know he's always had. you know energy about him he's the one that makes the you know the whole family smart. and you a great basketball player. about to go out and get a scholarship to a vessel. it's kind of heartbreaking that you know for us to put on a show like this for our community they couldn't respect us enough to you know hold back from fighting just for one. hour. this community came here in search of safety but is fear and distrust build outside these walls they wonder what the future will be for them and their children.
i. think. i really do not feel like i belong here oh i feel like i'm my parents made a mistake by trying to bring me here. and i feel as though you know in the next ten years or so there's not going to be up anywhere for my siblings to go comfortably because this would mean i feel as though my little brother is not going to be able to go get a job again right because of. him just so how they're trying us right now i would deem it. it's very difficult as a chef or restaurant or to buy shrimp with the confidence that what you're serving is good if the good seafood by nature is a high risk sometimes for production drugs. that are. the f.d.a. simply isn't testing enough on the imported market to really find all of these
five families fight to survive in twenty first century america i live off my credit cards when i don't make enough money the last couple of months it's been minimum balances can only keep their heads above water in a tough economic climate companies have had to lay off thousands of workers if you want to go to school he'll be paying for his classes and books and all of that he can't do that. just zero. al-jazeera.
hello and welcome to this al-jazeera news hour live from doha i'm martine denis coming up in the next sixty minutes president trump takes his case for a warning to the us mexico border itself. that we must confront the ayatollah is not part of the. u.s. secretary of state might pompei you call from the arab world to stand against iran in a key speech delivered in cairo. questions increase about the validity of the presidential election result in the democratic republic of congo. and a turnaround for thailand just days after they sacked for their coach at the asian cup we'll have that action and more in sport. but first the u.s. president has ended a visit to the country's southern border he went there on thursday in
a bid to drum up support for his proposed war which would separate the u.s. from mexico donald trump met border security offices in the texas town of macallan he's demanding more than five billion dollars for the war which he says is needed to stop an influx of crime democrats accuse the president of holding the country hostage over the issue and are refusing to fund it and that's led to a partial government shutdown that's lasted nearly three weeks now. but you see on the border that's not as much of a problem because they come through the border and they go out through our nation so you'll have crime in iowa you'll have crime in new hampshire you'll have crime in new york you have crime in places you know you don't associate with the border but it comes through the border tremendous amounts and as hard as we work as well as we're doing nationwide on crime a lot of it's caused by people to come in through the southern border so it and you
know if we had the barrier it wouldn't happen it wouldn't happen they could have fewer people they could put people other places and sort of having everyone concentrated right here and it's all common sense and nancy and just to know that look you know winning this argument they're losing the argument badly they know it and set about an argument as not about politics for me it's about doing the right thing for let's go live now to our correspondent kimberly how she's there in macallan in texas right by that border kimberly and then we had the president saying that he's actually winning the argument. it's not clear that he's winning the argument specially here mccallum texas we should point out the reason the president came here is because this is the site of the most illegal crossings into the united states one local reporter here told me that every week you see thousands of people coming across the border just sort of hopping the fence that you see behind me not the tall part but further back it's
a little bit shorter about a meter tall so in terms of winning the argument martin well we saw people protesting the president when he arrived but we also saw people who were holding signs of support a it seems that what this wall has become is a symbol whether you're for donald trump or against donald trump it's really part of the larger argument but the president there's no question tried to make the case today that this is about border security not about his presidency he brought out all kinds of props when he was standing with the border patrol things that have been seen as like drugs weapons all in an attempt to make his case and he's retaining isn't he the threat of invoking these emergency powers which if put into effect would allow him to circumvent the whole congressional process and that she pay for the rule himself should he want. right the president said as he left the white house to head here to texas that he is not ruling out declaring an emergency
that would open up funding from the department of defense that has already been approved by congress but certainly that's also going to open the president up to major legal challenges because there are many in the united states namely his democratic opponents who believe this does not cost a two to crisis so what we saw donald trump also doing today was tweeting out sound bite if you will from president obama in twenty fourteen where when the number of illegal crossings were relatively the same he did characterize this as a humanitarian crisis the president trying to make the case that this is more about politics than it is about you know domestic safety in terms of the pushback he's trying to say that other presidents have agreed with me the only reason you're pushing back now is because you're pushing back against my presidency so terms of winning the argument it's still not clear that anything has changed all right kimberly thank you for that kimberly how could i want
a house correspondent in mcallen texas well back in washington the government because many of those of course who have not been going to work or been going to work without the prospect of being paid because of this partial government shutdown they've been protesting correspondent heidi is that. impact of this partial government shutdown is twofold first there are those government services that are being unfilled filled in some of the most vulnerable americans in just a few weeks time would begin came the price of this is not resolved they are the recipients of the federal food stamps who depend on that benefit to feed their families but more importantly in more immediately at this moment and the more than eight hundred thousand federal workers who are going without a paycheck because of a shutdown and they are marching now to the white house finally calling out president trying to find names it is his responsibility to reopen the government
congress even doing his job right now mcconnell isn't doing his job the senate majority leader and then of course the president you know this is he's going to not sign the bills congress has already passed legislation to reopen the government he won't sign and that was the resoundingly answer for every person i spoke to at this protest they say the president is to blame for this federal shutdown and that is why they are going to the white house to demand that he reopens it with or without wall funding trump has claimed otherwise he has actually said he believes many third rule workers agree with what he is doing that is not what the unions representing these workers are saying in fact some have even bought a bottle lawsuit against the federal government making saying that it is against the fair labors act to force federal workers to go without a paycheck and some to work without a paycheck however any sort of legal resolution may take years and these workers are demanding a solution now u.s.
secretary of state mike pohnpei it has laid out the trumpet ministrations vision for american policy in the middle east speaking in cairo the egyptian capital he cold u.s. leadership opposed to force in the region but the main focus of his speech was confrontation with iran charles shuffled has more. the u.s. secretary of state who is touring the middle east almost described as a mission focused on shoring up support among arab allies against iran. since withdrawing from the two thousand and fifteen iran nuclear deal last year the u.s. has increased pressure on teheran which it accuses of being a destabilizing force in the region many middle east experts say pushing iran into a corner is a dangerous move but in the egyptian capital cairo america's top diplomat didn't mince his words the nations of the middle east will never enjoy security achieve economic stability or advance the dreams of their people of iran's revolutionary
regime persists on its current course america's economic sanctions against the regime are the strongest in history and will keep getting tougher until iran starts behaving like a normal country. middle east follows confusion about donald trump's withdrawal of a round two thousand u.s. troops from northern syria the president's announcement schult arab allies as well as a u.s. political leaders and military commanders concerned that the battle against eisel in syria and the wider region is not over yet. try to reassure them president trump has made the decision to bring our troops home from syria we always do and now is the time but this isn't a change of mission we were made committed to the complete dismantling of isis the isis threat and the ongoing fight against radical islamism in all of its forms. the
u.s. withdrawal from syria is also having ramifications for american relations with nato ally turkey u.s. troops have been working with kurdish y.p. chief i choose who control a large area of northern syria close to the turkish border turkey considers the white peachey a terrorist organization the president received type order one said the suggestion on choose day by u.s. national security adviser john bolton of protecting the white p.g.a. as a precondition to the u.s. troop withdrawal plan was a serious mistake there was very little if anything from pompei or about the story israeli palestinian peace process very little on the saudi and amorality led war in yemen that has killed tens of thousands displaced millions with millions more threatened with famine and disease pressure increased on president trump from both democrat and republican senators to end support for the saudi involvement in yemen
after the murder of saudi journalist jamal khashoggi many suspect crown prince muhammad bin solomon ordered a saudi hit squad to fly to istanbul last october that the united states is the main provider of saudi military assistance and support in the war in yemen so the not united states is not an objective observer of the war of yemen it's an accomplice in the water of yemen. pompei was keen to lay much of the blame for what many describe as years of chaos in the middle east on former president barack obama's administration. president trump has reasserted america's control as a force for good in these regions he said we have rediscovered our voice. there are millions of people throughout this region who are grateful for the u.s. led coalition success in the battle against eisel but there will also be many made nervous by the u.s. administration that blames the region's instability and the previous u.s.
president of the wrong. and joan rubin served as deputy assistant secretary of state under president obama is now the president of washington strategy group and he describes mr pompei a speech is contradictory and an attack on the obama administration was shamefully partisan it was a historic and lacked a real vision. was just a checklist of one off comments that was meandering and contradictory and very disappointing frankly for an american secretary of state to go to a foreign capital and to attack his predecessor an american president it's not something that we should be doing and it's certainly not something that is sitting secretary of state should do if you're really wants to represent the whole of the united states abroad prior to the speech i was hoping he would have an audience of three the american people the arab people leaders in.
