Christmas Island detention centre: Peter Dutton blames riot on 'core group of criminals' as extra police sent to restore order (ABC 10 November 2015)

I was puzzled at first as to why Immigration Minister Peter Dutton was keen to remind us that Christmas Island now houses many criminals due for deportation on character grounds, but that serves two purposes: one, it shifts the spotlight away from asylum seekers, refugees, visa over-stayers, and non-violent criminals in the centre; two, if anyone had got killed, it would've make the authorities' actions seem more reasonable.
