Comment on Magistrate ‘sick and tired’ of Liam Jurrah by Scotty.

Kieran and Ian,

I believe Jurrah had his bail refused in the Supreme Court. Why would Magistrate Trigg grant bail?

The only mockery is that Jurrah keeps on committing crimes and people like yourself and Ian find ways to blame others.

By the way Magistrate Trigg has served on the bench for a number of years. He is a valuable member of society and a person who should be thanked for his service.

But I suppose that still won’t change your view that offenders are victims somehow. Grow up and feel sorry for the real victims that Jurrah assaulted. He is going to plead guilty for a reason you know (You talk about respect, go have a word to Jurrah about respecting the law).

Bev, I agree with what you say completely. As you point out Jurrah was represented previously by Jon Tippet. I think every sensible individual is just sick of his illegal actions and as shown by his criminal history, not everyone can change for the better.
Kieran, if you believe that every defendant prior to conviction is equal in the eye of the law you are very gullible.
Your prior criminal history does effect your bail consideration.
This is why Jurrah was remanded and why the magistrate did not show any leniency towards his bail application at a later date.

It was great that the Magistrate in this matter had no patience and did not let the defence lawyer “to get a word in”. We all know it would have been excuse after excuse.
Well done by lawyer as you point out, the defendant plead guilty … So he is guilty. You do the crime you do the time.
So sick of people standing up for the offenders.

Magistrate Trigg,

I commend you for your actions. It’s about time the justice system got tough on offenders, no matter who they are.
Lets see, Jurrah is [a defendant] of aggravated assault and breaching a domestic violence order. Why does he think he is above the law. Well done Magistrate Trigg for putting Jurrah in his place.
To the Aboriginal Legal Aid, bout time that a magistrate doesn’t let you crap on about how the offender is the victim. I just wish it happened more often.
I hope other magistrates take the same approach.

Lambley says Gunner won’t discuss rising crime
I have finally resorted to self protection. A firearm is in my household and if anyone breaks in I’m going to use it.
As Robyn has stated the NT (Alice Springs) crime rate is out of control.
No longer do I have confidence that government organisations (police, etc.) can protect innocent citizens. Not the police’s fault, their hands are tied.
The justice system is a joke. The offenders go to court smiling and are proud to brag to other offenders regarding their illegal acts. They get bail and re-offend. I personally think judges should be held accountable.
I have also bought a trained guard dog from interstate.
I guarantee no one is coming into my yard. You might think I am bragging or going to far.
For me my family is priority. Pity I had to resort to this to protect my residence and family in Alice Springs.


Wowser games?
Well done NT Government.
We are pulling out our team that we had organised to participate in the Masters Games.
Will not even consider participating again until full strength beer, wine and spirits are back on the menu.
We will take our money elsewhere.
Sorry to the hard working event organizers.


Five youths arrested after armed robbery
Mabel: Could not agree with a comment more than yours.
This town is out of control with Aboriginals. People are civilized and do not rob, bash, steal from innocent people.
I agree more police are needed in this town but the bigger issue is what happens to the people when they are arrested and front court.
Back in the 60s and 70s gaol with hard labour was usual. Bring back tough sentencing instead of the slap on the wrist from lenient judges.
Offenders should be responsible for their actions. No excuses brought up in court for their illegal actions. Sentencing should be harsh just like the old days.


Coniston Massacre remembered
Constable Murray was a hero. If you look back at the times they lived in and what was required, he did what was needed.
Wish he was here nowadays. Alice Springs would be a better place.
Respect Constable Murray.


Lhere Artepe director on aggravated assault charge
Davo: The only way you will get solutions for this town is to not be scared to say how it really is. Sorry that you seem to be a do-gooder who seems offended by the truth.
If Mr Lindner is not an Aboriginal I will say sorry but truth is he is.
There is a reason race is important to solutions in this town. Almost all offending is committed by Aboriginals. I believe this is very important. You it seems do not. Put your head in the sand again.
