The thing is the attack of the lifeguards was just a catalyst for gang related trouble, which if you believe some locals has been going on for 20 years. At the very least things have been happening their between these two groups for at least several years.
So to say this is all the result of the lifeguard bashing is really only brushing the tip of the iceberg.

This is not an Australian problem but a GLOBAL one.
Isn't it the worst form of racism to ALLOW and ENCOURAGE, ONE ethnic group to become the most UNTOUCHABLE by law, despite becoming the most criminal and violent? Well Aussies didn't do this to themselves. It was forced on us by our NWO, Global Economy Worshipping, "Think Tank" weilding, "Politically Correct" (Morally Unjust) "leaders".
I mentioned all this in an earlier post but it seems most would rather label Australian's as racist than mourn for us becoming yet another victim of the NEW WORLD (DIS)ORDER.
Again, PLEASE read ALL of NumberCruncher's link on pg. 6 of this thread, it IS THE TRUTH.

The only point i see you making is a futile attempt to smear Australians and be an apologist for the causes of these riots.
Trouble flared about 9pm (AEDT) when the gang descended on Malabar Rd and went on a rampage towards Maroubra beach.
Residents claimed police were ill-prepared for the violence, with many saying it was only stopped when the gang was chased away by the 'Bra Boys surf gang.
Lyne Sickle, whose Ford Festiva was vandalised, said she watched a police car enter the street and then turn away as a large mob of hooligans congregated.
"I don't know why they (police) didn't do anything," she said.
Randwick councillor Murray Mathson said only four police cars initially responded to calls for help.
"They were outnumbered and from what I understand, it was the 'Bra Boys who saved the police from attack," he said.
"Although I am not a fan of the 'Bra Boys, I think their protection of the police was praiseworthy in this incident."
Twenty carloads of men arrived at Cronulla by about 10.30pm, smashing shops, and cars in Elouera Road, and threatening people who got in their way. They reportedly stabbed a woman at Carringbah, but her condition was unknown.
Gunshots were heard near Northies Hotel at Cronulla and there was an unconfirmed report of a man being shot.
At 10.45pm, on the Kingsway at Caringbah, about 12 cars sped by, followed by another vehicle that stopped. Four men got out and began attacking patrons of Antonio's Pizzeria. They knocked a woman unconscious on the footpath and smashed the window of a denture clinic.
Thai-born Suchada Goodier, 44, owner of a Thai restaurant on the Kingsway, said she was walking on the street when she was attacked. The group then started bashing her car. "What have I done?" she said. "I have done nothing."
In Bay Street, Brighton-le-Sands, a young woman was sitting in a car when men approached and opened the door to her vehicle and put a hand up her dress, saying: "We are going to rape you, you Aussie sluts." A witness, Linda El-Hassan, 19, said a shot was fired at the woman's car but she was unhurt.

AUSTRALIA: HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS ROOTED IN SYSTEMATIC
DISCRIMINATION AGAINST ABORIGINES
SYDNEY-- Australias criminal justice system remains heavily weighted against Aboriginal people, Amnesty International said at a press conference today.
An Amnesty International delegation visiting Australia since the start of March found that indigenous Australians still run a disproportionately high risk of arrest, detention and death in custody. A pattern of ill-treatment and arbitrary arrests occurs against a backdrop of systematic discrimination against Aborigines, the human rights organization said.
We are appalled to see what little progress has been made in addressing these abuses since our last visit to Australia in 1992, said Heinz Schurmann-Zeggel, Amnesty Internationals researcher on Australia.
The way the criminal justice and penal systems function makes Aborigines particularly vulnerable to cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment. The high rate of Aboriginal deaths in custody is also due to the dramatically disproportionate representation of Aboriginal people in detention.

I was going to send a 'very strong' u2u but my icons have vanished.
O.K. you got "media" in your blood, we get it, so shouldn't you know you can do "serious", honest "reporting" that's also socially responsable or do you think feeding the thread can only be done by feeding the flame?
Oh great! Now my tongue's bleeding but at least it's my blood and not a fellow Australian's. You should go away and try it, for our nation's sake.
New text messages inciting more violence were now being circulated, The Australian newspaper reported today.
One congratulated Australians for the fight they put up against the Lebanese, but called for more attacks.
"We'll show them! It's on again Sunday," the message said.
Another warned of retaliation from the Middle Eastern groups.
"The Aussies will feel the full force of the Arabs as one - 'brothers in arms' unite now...," the message said.
Another called for "straight up WAR".
"The leb's/wogs won't stand for this...," it said
