Melbourne Under Siege is an explosive book that captures the crimes that have Melbourne feeling shocked to their core and the traditionally sedate city of Melbourne has often found herself in the national and international news for all the wrong reasons. During the ensuing media firestorm, there was not only relentless reporting on the terrifying ‘Apex-like’ crimes, but the furore also soon morphed into emotional debates about youth crime in general, putting the anti-social activities of other alleged gangs such as the ‘YCW’ (Young Crucified Warriors), ‘Islander 23’ and ‘MTS’ (Menace to Society) under the public spotlight. This book covers the crimes and the levels of of violence, randomness and brazenness – home invasions, car jackings, assaults, personal thefts, shop smash and grabs, vandalism and public brawls.
