Kings Cross has always had a unorthodox rough edge but lately as Elizabeth Farrelly points out the convergence of alcohol and huge numbers of young people make the environment downright dangerous. Police fearing to go to work in such an environment is perfectly reasonable. Just observe the heady mix of testosterone booze and try to reason with intoxicated aggressive people who resent police doing their duty. Have a look at the streets at 6 am before the cleaners have been through and see a beautiful suburb desecrated. We need to restore the Cross before it is lost to mindless hoons.
