Names of boxing instructors (anonymous revision Sep 06) - surely not noteworthy? Callophylla 07:38, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

Agreed. Have removed this info. Bonga 08:11, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

This page is now crap. The older versions were much better. And who says that Balga Senior High is 'notorious'? That is just like so much bullshit about the area.

Agreed, Balga Senior High School is not as bad as it is made out. There is a whole Anti-Balga campaign going on in my area... Their tools are lies... Nytewolf2k7 02:09, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Balga and crime[edit]

I don't believe the crime rate in Balga is as bad as it is made out. It's been lessening, there are just as many crimes committed as in Westminster. I remember a whole street in Balga that used to be a haven for criminals, but they were either moved or left the area. Near BSHS there used to be a drug dealer haven in the flats opposite (rumoured) but that haven no longer exists.

Most of the crimes in the area seem to be committed by people from the neighbouring suburbs... At least from what I've heard... Nytewolf2k7 02:24, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Both of you need to quote some statistics. Your opinions are not fact.
This entire article needs to quote some statistics. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:29, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
Considering that I live near there, It isn't just an opinion, Its a fact. It really isn't that hard to notice the movements of people around your own neighbourhood DarkNightWolf (T|C|M) 20:30, 10 September 2009 (UTC)
