Freo's View




Morons continue to deface and vandalise Fremantle’s historic Arthur’s Head especially along the coastal path at Bathers Beach.

Graffiti has been sprayed on the Aboriginal Manjarree Trail signs and on the solar lights, which have again been vandalised with many small holes smashed into the panels.

I hear there are officers at the City of Fremantle who believe it is not appropriate to replace those small lights and to put taller solar lights in the area, as that would not be in keeping with the heritage significance, but I wonder how ugly, vandalised low lights suit the historic area any better.

This has been an ongoing problem for many years and Fremantle Council needs to address this. The path is very popular with tourists and locals so an unsightly appearance is not good enough!

    The street lights, or additional lighting
    facing onto, and highlighting the beach, area and Roubd House will Illuminate these idiots and their criminal acts. Easypeasy. Then lock them up.

    CCTV is the solution. Good quality 1080 cameras can cost US $50 each and could be linked by WiFi to a nearby resident’s computer. The activation is by Infra Red motion detection and includes audio. Software such as Blue Iris allow setting all parameters such as still frame capture, video capture of any length, setting of hot spots or ignored zones, time inactive, IR on or off, email alerts to any phone with or without images of the moving object. Another option would be a ban on hoodie head cover garments.
