Ten alleged members of Brothers for Life arrested. Breakthrough in 2012 murder.


Brothers For Life crime gang members have allegedly been shooting up Sydney and each other for the past week but after 10 arrests since last night, the core of the gang has been crushed.

Police have also made a significant breakthrough this morning in the long unsolved murder of Yehya Amood at Greenacre in October 2012.

Mr Amood, 27, was shot dead inside a car on Greenacre Road along with Brothers For Life member Bassam Hijazi, 32, who survived the attack and later fled to Lebanon.

Hijazi later returned to Australia and has never cooperated with the investigation - he continues to walk with a limp and is currently facing charges of breaking into a Louis Vuitton store in Sydney's CBD earlier this year.

Brothers For Life's Sydney leader Mohammed Hamzy, known as "Little Crazy", was arrested this morning and has been charged with murder and attempted murder in relation to the 2012 incident.

In all, 10 members of the Brothers for Life gang have been arrested

It’s a start but this hardly makes a dent. The streets of Sydney are crawling with scum like this and they are all wearing massive gold chains, the latest thug fashions and driving expensive cars. We have a few of them here in Adelaide - luckily, so far, they just tend to kill each other!

Huh...this cannot be true...the Ozzie Police confiscated all the guns!

"There have now been 294 shootings since Premier Barry O'Farrell took office in March 2011"

On Monday night a 13-year-old girl was blasted in the back with a shotgun by three men looking for her brother with alleged Brothers 4 Life links at a house on Sunnyholt Rd, Blacktown.
On the same night a woman's car was fired upon in a road rage attack at Iris St, Riverwood.
On Sunday night Brothers 4 Life gang member, Michael Odisho, 27, was shot in the thighs and arms at his Winston Hills home.
On the same night shots were fired into a three-storey townhouse on Blaxell St, Granville.
Early on Monday morning shots were also fired at a house on McGuirk Way, Rouse Hill about 4am.
Last week Mahmoud Hamzy, 25, a cousin of jailed killer Bassam Hamzy, was shot dead by three gunmen inside the garage of his home at Revesby Heights.
Later in the week Raymond Pasnin, 27, was killed after he was shot five times in the back as he walked towards his Subaru Impreza parked in the driveway of his mother's Pendle Hill home.

Not again... why won't this myth die?

This idea that guns are banned in Australia has wide currency in the United States, but it simply is not true. There are millions of firearms legally held by private citizens in Australia - more, in fact, now than before the supposed ban (although it did take about fifteen years for numbers to rise again to that level). We've certainly got some dumb gun laws in Australia - universal registration, certain restrictions on things like handgun barrel lengths that make no real sense, and strict rules on things like storage, but guns aren't banned.

I'm an Australian gun owner myself. I own both a handgun and a semi-automatic military-surplus rifle, and could own more if I wanted to (I don't see the need myself as for me firearms are tools - I can only use one gun at a time so what I have meets my needs - if I was interested in collecting, I'd own more). I do own a few basic hunting rifles as well, but am considering rationalising those down to one and getting a decent shotgun as well.

These criminals generally don't follow the laws that we do have - most of them would not be legally allowed to own firearms because of serious and/or recent criminal convictions - so the incidents do illustrate that laws certainly don't stop criminals getting guns. But the laws also don't stop law abiding citizens getting guns either - and a significant proportion of the adult population do, to at least some level (basic hunting rifles and shotguns probably account for at least half to three quarters of all guns, because owning more than those requires navigating a substantial bureaucracy - as I say, dumb laws).

Love the Underbelly series. Maybe they’ll do one on how Aussie police busted this gang. Most gangs are pretty ecumenical. If this was a religious gang, I’d like to see if they work any differently from plain vanilla non-Muslim gangs. Also, I wonder why they haven’t done one on the Triads.
