Braced for terror: Police protect Sydney shoppers by blocking off roads with huge semi-trailers and diversity bollards

Authorities turned Sydney’s shopping district into a fortress as tens of thousands of shoppers swarmed the city hunting for Boxing Day bargains.

Huge trucks and imposing concrete bollards blocked off usually busy roads near the city’s bustling Pitt Street and Queen Victoria Building (QVB) precinct.

As uniformed police patrolled the streets, Daily Mail Australia spotted semi-trailers parked across roads near George Street and Market Street.

    A day without bombings, vehicle attacks, rapes, murders and pillaging, is like a day without Islam!

    The doers nothing can relax now. If anything goes down they can point to stupid truck blockades and say: “See. We did something. It is not our fault.”

    Just a few percent of your population increased and you get this… is it worth it?

      In a word, no.

      But – we now have Trucks of Peace keeping at bay the vehicular jihadis. Well, at least those who drive on the roads, as the Trucks of Peace do not obstruct the footpaths.

      Clearly, this allows a vehicular jihadi to completely avoid the Truck of Peace by driving on the footpaths, and (perhaps, Allah (swt) willing!) mowing down the infidels as one avoids the Truck of Peace.

      There is only one appropriate solution.

      Isn’t diversity grand?

    The Muslims will just find another way to kill us.
    The absence of casualties does not a victory make!

  • Utterly absurd.

    As Mark Steyn said, years ago, it would be better to put all such barricades, bollards, barriers AROUND the whole country. And keep out all Islams. Who needs them? We’re a modern Judeo-Christian-oriented democracy — not a medieval heathen theocracy.

    But the truck driver was a devout muslim and the plan is to have the truck Block any EMS vehicles or Police from getting in once he opens up with an AK-47 hidden in the flat bed.
    This is why I don’t trust muslim Police Officers in Toronto because they demanded a Ramadan service inside the Police HQ when no other faith was allowed a service.
    They are alt-islam supremacists that we gave guns to and we’ll just have to wait for our version of a Fort Hood slaughter at a Police station because Liberals are dense .
