They weren't first generation. They were at least second. So I guess unless you're asking what crime they committed in previous lives to have their karma so bad they were reborn in Australia there is no way to tell.

It is always embarassing to be part of a family that has no penal deportation heritage. My family immigrated here of there own free will. On both sides. One of the guys was Captain Cook's first mate. It is all far too legitimate, I feel that I am looked down upon by the real criminal descendants

I don't have to go too far back to trace my criminal heritage. And oh boy is it extensive.

My ancestors might not have been convicted felons (I always maintain they just got away with it), but my grandfather is a pure con artist. I'm always proud of our little deviancies.

Australia: The country that idealises criminals, and mocks those who aren't.

We must lock up this culture and throw away the key! Prison works, it works by sentencing people to death by time

You're all making it far too easy to not only leave the island prison but enter civilization again.
