Comment on Where to now for council and Stuart statue? by Pagan.

I have read the above comments.
Putting up a statue of Hitler: He had nothing to do with the opening up of the inland of Australia.
Respect: What about our respect for an important man coming into a strange land for his country for people to come and settle.
The Gun he carries: All explorers carried guns as do station owners when they go on their bore runs (checking the water for the cattle). If there is a animal in stress due to some misadventure, the gun is there and used.
As one of the above mentioned, the fighting, rubbish and language in the park every single day is enough to make everyone ashamed to call Alice Springs home.
There is no respect there for the people to love Alice.

‘Anzac Oval not for sale’: govt under pressure on gallery plans
Why is it so hard for the Government to realise that the Alice Springs people want their sacred site left as it is?
This site was the camping ground for the soldiers going up to Darwin in WW2 to protect Australia. The town’s people chose and built this this site for their local games every weekend: Rugby, cricket, the school athletic days, and many more that the people of Alice have already mentioned.
Plus the planning people have not considered many other features that happen on this sacred site.
The Totem Theatre, the Community Centre, both have been overlooked in the design of the area.
This is Alice Springs residents’ Sacred Site, so like other sacred sites please leave it well alone.

International flights to Alice would lower fares
Alice Springs should have been an international airport years ago.
It would cut down on noise and curfews in the cities, be a national airport to anywhere in Australia, and central to all states in Australia except of course Tasmania.

Government alcohol policies a giant hangover
Get the bottle shops to hire their own security, or make buyers go inside the shop to purchase their goods.

Mayor: town needs ‘full lockdown’ on bottle shops
If we are only going to put a bandaid on the known problem why this is happening, why not close all drive through bottle shops in Alice Springs?
That way persons must enter the premises to get their service.

A good spot for the art gallery?
A pity the government does not stand up and say, “enough is enough”. But no, we pussy foot around and do not want to be called racist so we do nothing, but make excuses for these arseholes.
Young or not, this behaviour was once not tolerated, now it is.
Do not blame the police, as they do a terrific job with the resources, but if the courts left these arseholes out onto the street again, with a slap, they do the same thing again, and destroy someone else’s holiday or home or car.
