Here is a newspaper article which shows that Wellington is not safe at night.

http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/2547085/Three-attacks-on-Wellington-youth

This is even though that French Rugby player was lying.

Where is the uproar from Wellington's Mayor ? or the politicians ?

Does it only matter if its a French rugby player ?

These attacks are still bad for our image. (as well as the people who were attacked by these low lifes)

In the scheme of things, Wellington is fine. More importantly, you "feel" safe walking around at night (well - I do anyway). Knee-jerk reactions are not necessary.

Exactly. How many rapes, murders, muggings happen 'outside a nightclub at 2am'.

I don't think theres ever gonna be a time when there will be less idiots around. Theres always going to be more but never less.

The only way to get less idiots in Wellington is to shift the Beehive, about 20 miles south should do it.

Any city at night can be unsafe, especially in the early hours, when Alcohol is taking it's full effect on people. People need to use their common sense when out at those hours. CCTV are good if manned 24 hours.

Its not the Alcohol, unless you are talking about street brawls.
Its the low lives that are trollling the streets looking for their high they get from fighting or robbing someone or bragging rights from dealing too the whiteys

Has anyone in Wellington been raped with a stick and thrown into a river on the way home from the clubs yet?

If not, then take pride in knowing your city is more safe than Christchurch. :stare:

LOL at the get rid of parliament call :D

I have honestly never come across any trouble in town in wellington, but then again most of my friends are 6ft+ 100kg rugby players - kind of easy to keep out of trouble with them around.

I ignored the comment earlier about only white people being attacked because that's a load of ***
