In order to keep their own young men in check. “Split beaches into sections, say leaders,” from The Australian, with thanks to Snowman:
CRONULLA’S beaches might be divided into sections to remove some of the tensions that erupted into mob violence this week.
Sunbathers, soccer players and surfers could each be allocated an area on the southern Sydney beach to reduce the chance of arguments and conflict over who controls the sand.
Muslim and Lebanese “marshalls” and elders might also be sent from the western suburbs to patrol the area and sanction troublemaking young men visiting the beach.
The ideas were flagged at a meeting of community leaders, politicians and police who represented the Sutherland Shire and Lebanese and Muslim groups from the western suburbs. The meeting was hosted by federal Liberal MP Bruce Baird.
