Who ARE the people smugglers? WHERE are they? How is it that they are not being prosecuted? They can’t possibly be so hidden that no one can find them and charge them with illegally dealing with human cargo.
Is the world so corrupt that people turn a blind eye to these activities?
I have read two reports about the life-jackets being sold (SOLD!) to asylum seekers by people smugglers, with many of these ‘life-jackets’ being utter fakes.
The fake jackets soak up water instead of being buoyant. They actually ensure that anyone (adult or child) who falls into water will surely drown.
Who is manufacturing these FAKE life-jackets? Surely these people can be found and stopped from producing these death garments. (It must be a factory).
What about the legitimate life-jacket manufacturers…why aren’t they ‘kicking up a stink’ and challenging the fake producers for making fake life-jackets - often using the authentic makers' logos and designs.
How is all this dreadful stuff happening, while many, many people are wholly aware of the deceit and cruelty occurring on such a wide scale?
Am I so naïve that I can’t see how human beings can do this to other human beings?
Meanwhile, ‘our’ PM Malcolm Turnbull and his side-kick, dead-eyes Dutton are pulling wool over other nations’ eyes by stressing what a wonderful and humane plan Australia has to deal with asylum seekers.
Yes, that’s right…secure them in off-shore hell-holes and leave them to rot and go insane, under the false claim that this is the way to stop asylum seekers from drowning at sea.
I hang my head in shame!
