Comment on LETTER: Taking no prisoners by Janet Brown.

Let’s stop for a moment and start at the beginning. We are all residents of the Alice Springs area. Behaviour is based on the acceptability of social interaction. To excuse those who are raised in a community in the bush and make excuses for their bad behaviour is wrong. Social inclusion is about respect for self and others. When in any town or community it is about respect. Respect is a personal thing and is the greatest gift to bring to any society. We all want to find balance in our diet, our spending our life styles. But we actively support imbalance in our social interaction. Balance is achieved by 100% equality. No special consideration for anyone based on colour disability or race. Acceptance of that, that makes them different is acceptable. That is recognition of their difference and not making excuses for those differences signifies equality based on acceptance. I do not support the penal mentality we have and with that I support strongly that if you break into a person’s home you met those people and if you made a mess you clean it up. You participate in work based programs and a percentage of that money goes to repay for damage and missing items. You participate in your society and you actively participate in the righting of your wrong. We are part of a give and take society and yet those who steal and are not required to address what they have done they are excused for many reasons and none have anything to do with social interaction.

Four councillors walk out of tonight’s Town Council meeting
A walk out for 10 minutes. That is what a parent demands for a child behaviouing petulantly.
Our elected members have shown their childish side with this behaviour.
Petulant behaviour left only adults in the chamber.
How can we the residents really see any maturity in our current council?

Gallery: Gunner sticks with ANZAC Oval
YD. The ground the old high school sits on is not your oval. The gallery is being built on that land. There is no building on the oval.
I am so concerned for the logic of the protesting few. The oval is not mine or yours.
It is council public property. For everyone.
The school is going and a new building being built. The gallery. Please think about your protest before yell to loudly. The school grounds are not the oval.

Indigenous gallery location done and dusted, says Lambley
I have spoken also to many people and they support Anzac as the location. As stated it is going on the land of the old high school.
A meeting at council and public consultation. It is government land. They do not have to consult with anyone.
When it comes to including the oval for open area then that is a need for MOU. Basic logic. The building is going on the government land. Now let’s all settle down and deal with facts.

The millions and the misery
Jen, how many failed programs have you been employed with?
This is not about giving young people a voice this is about giving young people a safe space.
With people who care about their safety. Not a government program that employees robots who perform for the wages.
This project is about people supporting kids and ensuring their safety. Relax. Revive and not be throw on the street after the place closes.
Empathy and real compassion will be the base of volunteers.
Not a government position in a high needs spot. People who care. That is why we will succeed.

The millions and the misery
The perfect location.
