Whilst the trial is still continuing, the Coroner’s statistics suggest that the injecting facility isn’t saving lives.
What these statistics suggest is that the injecting rooms are acting as a honey pot for crime and drug use in Richmond.
These statistics also show that in the year that Daniel Andrews’ injecting facility opened, there were actually more overdose deaths in City of Yarra than there were in the year before it opened.
The police and local residents know that despite Daniel Andrews promising that the community would be safer, that crime is rife and there is more drug use on the streets than before the injecting facility opened.
