certainly we have an issue we have an issue with our youth in the state but i believe that we can timing that issue i've got everybody welcome to you know tell me. before so where detective acting inspector child is briefing her team before another night out on patrol or just be careful that you don't skip 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're task force came about as a result of the evolution of the army invasion offense and carjacking and breeze that we're seeing 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 insertion 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 this trial 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 the victorian 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 this well.
are all the bodies brought aboard. nineteen year old 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 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 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 holder things in the world but she's a stay at home mom or she does believe what the news says. she also looks at 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 i think 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. back. to number one. since the whole apex thing being on the news and i came to 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 sudanese psych we say why is this guy maybe we should you know be more cautious and just you know public transport you know people would rather stand from flinders street today knowing than sit next to me you know i get followed around in the grocery store.
like i'm stealing groceries or you know i don't know in school or try to tell me i'm going to hang out with a group of more than four people because of the look i would doing something on my . so they basically ten american lives 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 that was pretty good in your. mind ceasars is a little like the club we would be child in mind the door tell the decision was made
for the sunday talk you know we just know he was playing the focus on the draw as they put videos out that are certainly anti establishment anti police and promoted follows kill kill was weak 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 say to you 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 this dozens of teenagers made had a part 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 have the world. 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 the. day the driscoll 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 water you know while the african gangs are here the government cancels and the police say they're not here they are here and papal residence. 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 wrote 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. 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 police seem to execute their powers and our responsibilities that the balance of forces in you don't exacerbate that that feeling a little perception. in
september sixty six records held their official launch party i think is some of the 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 we had legal advisors at the show and outside the show i wanted the police about obviously the amount of people we expect to come and. when i was 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. 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 a star right. this is amazing in seeing people small people people dance. as proud. but at around two thirty am once the main performance was over a fight broke out. some of the plants inside right and then their friends went to defend them was like oh yeah i did a bunch of i wanted to force my cousin the subway there right in the dutch escalated. when they're trying to break it up. we've opened up. to a hundred people cause my ham in collingwood after a violent brawl broke out by a group of youths.
so things went 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 the right. car hit the crowd. and nineteen year old south sudanese man faces multiple charges. hammers eighteen year old cousin was badly injured his leg was lighter amputated. you know real bright young shit you know
he's always had. in a row 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 play bass or. 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 an. 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 really do not feel like i belong here oh i feel like i'm my parents made a mistake of 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 of 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 betraying us right now i would deem that. shadowy financial operations are propping up north korea's economy pampering the elite and fueling the nation's missile additions. one on one east investigates north korea's secret money on al-jazeera.
limits i view myself as a capital artist we are trying to pay for the world smaller and smaller we don't want to be set realistic in the world we would rather have a fantasy growing pains coming soon how much more are we going to invest in the elusive notion that militaries guarantee our national security and poverty destitution and the sense of months and this is actually at the heart of virtually every civil conflict in the last twenty years of him steiner head of the u.n. development program talks to al-jazeera. president both believe the ongoing dispute the region has dragged on too long. the blockade of qatar for the sake of regional security.
area and this is the world news from al-jazeera an influential regional group backs calls for a vote recount in democratic republic of congo also a handshake shrouded in secrecy a new report reveals how far the president went to hide details of a meeting with vladimir putin and what's in a name change will threaten the future of the greek government. so the calling on countries in the gulf to end their dispute saying it's just gone on too long might pompei it was here in qatar on sunday on the latest leg of his middle east tour now on his way to riyadh where he's expected to hold talks with the saudi crown prince mohammed bin sultan the story today from. mike bomb paling
qatar with a message to the gulf countries and their dispute the west political crisis in decades for the gulf cooperation council president and i both believe the ongoing dispute in the region has dragged on too long and the dispute benefits adversaries and harms our mutual interests the emir of qatar shaped i mean been hammered out fanny greeted on peo after discussions with qatar's foreign minister said mohamed but i'll get a fanny both countries say they are keen to consolidate trade and military cooperation that includes expanding the largest u.s. military base in the middle east dade near the capital doha is home to the forward operating base of u.s. central command. and then we've discussed all the issues of interest for our countries regional issues starting with the gulf cooperation council and the peace process in the middle east as well as the reconsideration in afghanistan as well as
other issues such as syria and counterterrorism. landed in qatar from the united arab emirates after visiting egyptian and behave in his flying to sandy arabia which have all imposed their eighteen month long land and sea blockade on qatar the accused the title funding extremism allegations strongly dismissed by the qatari leaders. america's top diplomat has also visited jordan and is due in oman and kuwait on his middle east tour it's being seen as an attempt to rally support among key players in the region to counterbalance the growing influence of iran and i don't think that the administration plans for dealing with iran by virtue of trying to organize a larger coalition are going to work simply because most states do not agree with us in our policies canceling the joint comprehensive plan of action that would have
prevented iran if implemented from ever attending a nuclear weapon the u.s. is due to host a conference in poland next month to discuss ways to curb iran's activities in the region and ensure middle east stability the u.s. is keen on building a bridge an alliance to counter what it considers to be a growing iranian influence in the gulf but that may be impossible as long as the diplomatic crisis in the g.c.c. continues. doha so his mo and bashar with us in studio art as their senior political analyst i wonder if we can go almost country by country or side by side with this holding moment starting with the united states does this prove that they can just do their deals and their business with each of the players who are involved here individually and that the crisis although they want it doesn't actually affect the way they do business with the gulf absolutely and that makes sense for any superpower slash empire as it were. because we know we learned from
the brits and the french and others before i mean the idea i don't want to put it that way but the classic idea of of divide and rule it's always been with us with superpowers. and i'm not suggesting that the united states has divided but certainly president did for a lot of fuel on the fire when the when the crisis. and to give him the benefit of the doubt one would say that he was deceived into it by so the arabiya in the united arab emirates when he was visiting the riyadh at the time and then he corrected his position and yet he gave enough leverage to the. to the countries surrounding cut. for him to really try and make it up for the for the damage done so i think if there is a will. on the part of the united states to do something i think they should be able to pressure saudi arabia into apologizing for the manufactured crisis and
for lifting the blockade and starting a real dialogue seeing as you mention those two players saudi arabia and the u.a.e. let's talk about that side of things has just been to the u.a.e. he's now heading to saudi arabia can they deal with this or is this going to be something where they'll be going you can't be doing business with other but definitely think it's just not now at this point in time is only a question of pride because first of all we have definitely turned the corner about most of these issues that were addressed a year and a half ago and i think most of the facts now are out to the open the whole world now knows that this was a manufactured crisis based on this information defused by abu dhabi etc etc etc so really in us far as the gulf crisis is concerned i think now it should be just a question of time for them once again to apologize to lift the blockade and begin a dialogue as at least the qatari defense minister assisted i think if i may
interject about your next question. you know it's not that i'm in terms of country by country i think what secluded from baylor needs to be doing is talking about yemen yemen yemen because look qatar has broke out of isolation got on its feet its economy is doing but then its neighbors its relations with the rest of the world is really doing marvelous its relationship with the united states couldn't be better but the country that is truly truly suffering under the. rats the wrath of saudi arabia and the united arab emirates with the support of the united states is yemen so really a process has started in stockholm and think it can continue and i think the united states at this point in time need to be putting. sure on abu dhabi and riyadh to end the war in yemen a good point and well made i will go back to my third question and that was about
qatar itself you know. it feels like what are we about eighteen months into this crisis here and certainly it just feels like this is the new normal here that the crisis could in tomorrow and yes they would be changes they would be easy to fly out of the region out of the country and around the region but otherwise. what changes well absolutely because originally the idea was is that saudi arabia and united arab emirates were going to basically take over qatar that failed and then as i said qatar broke out of isolation and at this point in time you could tell from every aspect of the relationship with the united states that both washington and doha have moved on they don't care at this point in time what i would be a riyadh or at all let alone menar think about this crisis in a sense everyone knows the facts and i think the by that that all relations between washington and the have strengthened so much that it's clear to me that washington
now says we need to get down to business and the neighbors need to get with the program and it's long to do and as sick as your point player said today this needs to get to be resolved the next weeks or months now if it doesn't for one reason or another i think at this point in time it is. lost because they have lost face they have lost that gamble and now they're just sinking in their mud and then their loss known to share our senior political analyst thank you. so in the news in the syrian army is preparing for an offensive by turkish forces on the kurdish rebel stronghold of syria's government is deployed soldiers artillery and tanks to the northwest suburbs. as u.s. forces prepare to leave from their bank or it considers the kurdish y p g to be a terrorist group i spoke to that to me a little bit earlier a journalist who specializes in kurdish politics he told us it's unlikely turkey would strike if u.s.
troops are still on the ground the turkish president himself said they don't want to harm us soldiers so i think for now there's no turkey would attack but the kurds have been also talking with russia and also with the syrian government to find to find a solution to prevent turkey from attacking the north east of syria and that's why recently we saw russian military police suddenly patrolling the area outside of. so there's changes and the kurds they are also now talking with. moscow's because they are afraid that turkey could attack them if the u.s. withdraws not just to us that is an orpheus of syria there are also french forces there there are forces from the u.k. so francis if other countries are willing for instance to send more forces to protect this enclave then they would have more success but in general it's very difficult to do that without us because you know the u.s.
they are the main contributor to the campaign against isis with the air force with two thousand more than two thousand troops in syria so i think it will be very difficult for counties like france or germany or kate to find an alternative to complete us. all and that's why i think it's also that the kurds are trying to talk also with the moscow to try to find a solution so that they are not overrun by the turkish army. still in syria and as i saw it continues to be defeated there some former fighters who escaped the front lines are now being given a chance to return to normal life thing is not everyone actually supports the rehabilitation efforts a cynical sunni reports now from northern syria. is a former eisel fighter. now he helps his father in the shop in mario when he's not at school. he joined i saw three years ago when he was thirteen his two elder brothers were also i so members they were both killed in the fighting says he is
lucky to have survived shy and reserved he tells us it was isis reveals that persuaded him to join the group. there was everything in those videos to attract me fighting shooting there were calling god's name but i didn't expect they could ever be so unjust which i saw them slaughtering others using children as in their battle many innocent died because of them after escaping from i saw spent a year in prison he was than allowed to join this rehabilitation center along with twenty five other former members of the group some of them foreign fighters. there were classes in religious beliefs and psychological counseling was mandatory. twelve months later he was given the chance to go back to school and be with his family but he'll be kept under surveillance. we continue to
