  1. thankfully i didnt go back to see what else was written after my comment… i was infuriated by the few that made snide remarks before me…

    lets hope they find her soon… alive n well…

      • For those commenters who wished her safety, its obvious that their primary motivation was to show concern for her wellbeing. Sure, it was expressed in a misguided, ignorant way, but their comments are nowhere near in the same league as idiots who advocate sinking the boats, for example. I don’t believe they deserve to be named and shamed here alongside those who are being obviously intentionally racist.

        Judging by your other comments, you seem just as vitriolic and bigoted a person as the people you’re trying to shame, shooting down other peoples’ comments, staying closed minded because, as your username alludes, your mind is already made up. You and the bogans are two sides of the same coin.

          If that’s all they did they wouldn’t be featured here would they now?

          it was expressed in a misguided, ignorant way

          We have found time and time again that bigots are ignorant and misguided. And they should not get a public platform.

          …you seem just as vitriolic and bigoted a person as the people you’re trying to shame

          We are not interested in appeasing bigots. Look what happened to Neville Chamberlain.

        • actually the administrators of the page had at that point deleted a large amount of the really bad comments…

      • I agree with Dman, some sounded more ignorant than bigoted. Surely if someone told them why their comments were offensive they would take them back. Try not to throw around the racist card too much, it cheapens criticism of those who are truely racist.

        • Surely if someone told them why their comments were offensive they would take them back

          Do you really believe that? Then why make such comments in the first place.

          Also making them on an officially-sanctioned moderated police Facebook page is breathtaking hubris. It’s as if they think the rest of the population, including the police, hold such views.

        • The ones who expressed concern over the girl but an ignorance of Muslims in Australia, yes I believe that. Likely they make these comments out of ignorance not racism partially based on the fact they are concerned over the girl’s wellbeing. However neither you or I know for sure because we’ve never spoken to the person or know anything about them apart from what is contained in this article.

          Potentially they may think the rest of Australia holds these views as you mention. Perhaps because they have never been told otherwise and have not been exposed to many other views apart from being lambasted for being a “racist” in an online blog.

        • neither you or I know for sure because we’ve never spoken to the person or know anything about them

          Don’t think I’d want to. And at least one of those commenters has form in promoting online hate and we know plenty about that person. So do the police.

          If people don’t want to have their hate exposed on “blogs such as this” the solution is simple. Keep racist and bigoted views to yourselves. In private. Behind closed doors. Like when you use the toilet.

          The world doesn’t want to know and potentially if someone wants to complain to AHRC you have broken the law.

        • Do you think, maybe you’re being a bit too sympathetic, and devoid of personality responsibility here? I mean, if someone insulted you, or your family members in the street, would you explore with them why their statements hurt, and find out where their ignorance comes from, or just call them idiots and move on?

          “Likely they make these comments out of ignorance not racism partially based on the fact they are concerned over the girl’s wellbeing.”

          Ignorance and racism do not cancel each other out. A person can be racist because of their ignorance, or choose to be ignorant because of their racism. It is also not an excuse.

          “Perhaps because they have never been told otherwise and have not been exposed to many other views apart from being lambasted for being a “racist” in an online blog.”

          I’ve said this before many times, but people who want to learn more can easily learn more about anything. Those who do not want to learn more cannot be taught. If someone refuses to listen they will not acknowledge any new information which contradicts their version of events, unless it comes from a trusted source (Family or friends only)

          But you can shame them. You can instruct them what they are doing is wrong, that they are mistaken and sharing racist beliefs in their actions. It won’t change their views immediately, but it may make them slightly reluctant to air them next time (And before anyone complains for this mentality-it is the same thing we do to children. If a child swears at a teacher they get into trouble, and are embarrassed about them. They may still want to swear at a teacher, but have learnt to try not to do that in public).

  2. Well, would you look at that? All that untapped investigation potential. NSW Police should hire all this talent and call it, wait for it, the Bogan Squad.

  3. @ mindmadeup/Anonymous – Calling someone a ‘bogan’ can be considered ‘bigotry’.

    Regardless, the info in the comments made by them happens regularly and is part of the islamic culture.
    People dissing them need to educate yourselves more on muslim ideology.

    @ dzenana – When something like this happens to persons like Fatima, it is only natural that people will comment as such!

    Still, I hope she is found safe and well.

    • Calling someone a ‘bogan’ can be considered ‘bigotry’

      Bullshit

      the info in the comments made by them happens regularly

      “Info”? You mean the ignorant spew of prejudice?

      When something like this happens to persons like Fatima, it is only natural that people will comment as such!

      There is nothing “natural” about bigotry and intolerance.

      Still, I hope she is found safe and well.

      No you don’t.

  4. My god….I’ve never seen an uglier bunch of humans in my life. Their unhappy with the world because they are so sadly limited and can’t keep understand the world around them. Probably never left their little corner of nowheresville and the world is a scary place.

  5. Non of thes people have any place in commenting on this missing person notice by the police, wasting important communication space on their webpage for narrow minded, miss guided, rasist, and sexist comments, showing a clear inability to show true compassion for a fellow human in need, no matter where they are from.

    Stop wasting peoples time with your trolling chitt chatter, and stop creating more heartache for these poor parents in desperate need to find their child.

    Stay off this site if you have nothing to add to the factual whereabouts of the girl and concentrate on your own children by giving them a chance to grow up more educated that you are.

  6. No problem. Just get your legal team to make another fake id to threaten legal consequences, he’ll get it sorted. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • It is there (sic) right to say what they like

      That’s why we publish them. We give their hate and ignorance a platform. They are obviously proud of their bigotry. They should not be surprised if the rest of the country isn’t.

      If they don’t want attention then they should keep their ignorant unwanted views to themselves. Behind closed doors.

    • Robert, shut ur mouth u piece of sh*t! They have no right to throw their disgusting raciest comments on an innocent child! Go get an education u prick

  7. Where is the new Darrin “nick folkes broke up with me” Hodges , Andy shine? He should be here saying these comments on the police page are fine and accurate. There’s a couple more votes for party for freedom failure right here.

  8. I do not agree with any of the nasty comments that were posted but I believe that you naming and shaming for the world to see is just as pathetic. You are being as inmature as they are… hate just breeds more hate

  9. Generally I would be upset about anything so discriminatory BUT i can totally understand these people. Child marriage is a huge problem in certain cultural groups and unfortunately some of them are Islamic also. Im sad to think that as a muslim women myself, even I worried that she had been married off. (ps child marriage is NOT acceptable in Islam – some people just do whatever they want)

    • BUT i can totally understand these people

      We do not and they do NOT represent us in any way. They bring shame upon Australia. And their ignorance of the world is deplorable.

      Child marriage is a huge problem in certain cultural groups

      Not in Australia. We have laws which forbid the marriage of anyone under the age of 18 without a special dispensation by the courts (which is rarely if ever granted). Contracting or facilitating an illicit marriage is punishable by fines and imprisonment for all concerned.

      In the past of course child marriage was almost universally practised. European royalty frequently contracted marriages with infants, both girls and boys. We know this because it was recorded in history, but marriage for their subjects was more often than not an informal practice, and what we would regard as child marriage would have been extremely common. Indigenous cultures practised what we would regard as child marriage and in some cases still do.

      In colonial Australia child marriages were certainly not unknown – orphan girls were married off to farmers on reaching puberty without much thought as to their future welfare. In fact until almost the 20th Century, women were regarded very much as the property of their fathers, or if orphaned, the state, to be disposed of as seen fit.

      Modern governments in the developing world, no matter what the religion of their citizens, are all wrestling with the problem of forced child marriages and other outdated cultural practices around marriage.

      even I worried that she had been married off

      Since the parents promptly reported her disappearance that was highly unlikely.

  10. No need to rave on at me, I simply understand the fears that led to these statements.
    “Try to understand men, if you understand each other you will be kind to each other”

  11. Don’t know if this girl has been found as yet, I pray she has, if I were Police I would suspect and investigate the majority of haters on FB.
