Surely their behaviour deserved heavier punishment than just being removed from the train.
It's the same at the footy and the cricket, the idiots just get removed from the ground, they continue to run amok and become SOMEONE else's problem.
What are the responsibilities of the transit guards who kicked them off the train, and the security who remove idiots like them from sporting stadiums.

Are the police happy for them to be just removed because it saves them having to process them and the paper work it requires?

The blokes were ‘authorized officers’, so don’t have police powers.

On another note, Sly was saying this morning that he expected the father to be arrested today.

The kids are shocking. If anything, dad’s worse.

The transit officers have the power to arrest/detain until the police come. The two brothers behaviour warranted them being detained.

"The sergeant told the court the brothers were drinking, swearing and hitting monitors at Southern Cross Station before they got on the train, and were intimidating and threatening towards passengers once on board. A passenger alerted transit officers when Isaiah vomited on the train, and the brothers became argumentative when the officers approached them."

They can:

check your ticket and concession entitlement, even after you’ve left the vehicle or station
ask to take your ticket for use as evidence
ask for your name, address and proof of identity
report you to the Department of Transport
arrest you until the police arrive, if you don’t comply
Authorised Officers don’t issue warnings or fines.

Bit tricky without oc spray or hand cuffs. I certainly wouldn’t take the chance in that situation.

Yes it is a bit tricky.

It annoys me that we are too soft on crime/loutish behaviour. In this instance a guy has been bashed because their criminal behaviour wasn't punished.

Yeah, I agree. They’ll be out on bail by now.

Separately, a bloke who king hit an innocent man was released on bail this week. He had priors.

If you’re a cop, you’d be thinking, ‘why bother making the arrest?’

The Authorised Officers aka Ticket Inspectors aren't armed with anything other than a card scanner...they are often older,, many are women, they aren't bouncer type physiques so I don't know how they would have detained two thugs bent on trouble. The fact that they then easily accounted for an experienced cop shows how dangerous they were.
Those who know Melboure may agree with me on this - from day 1 I always wondered why the pseudo cops called PSOs are only deployed on stations not on each and every evening train. To me the train is potentially more likely to be a source of trouble than the station. Where I live they would be bored witless.
