Comment on Dylan Voller’s mistreatment started in Alice Springs by Paul Parker.

Any parent found using such treatment would be charged.
Such treatments must be independently approved on a case by case basis by courts, without full judicial consideration and approval such behaviour needs be regarded as criminal.
Such review essential to protect prisoners, also those required to treat them.
Chief Minister Adam Giles and commentators need clearly make point exists all around Australia in governments a systemic avoidance from addressing issues raised in open public debate.
Legislative authorities have responsibility to address openly issues in public discussion – particularly more difficult issues.
All legislators need know it is NOT acceptable to present then push through their respective legislatures whatever numbers they hold to obtain into legislation without full, open, and adequate public debates.
On so many issues, public discussion is clearly inadequate.
Recent Commonwealth election, particularly the Senate demonstrates a distrust for geographic representatives, reminiscent of why gerrymander is in popular speech.
Adam Giles is correct youths in detention are a small percentage of youths.
IMHO needed is more public discussion about how to increase effectiveness of adult correctional programs to reduce percentage of recurring prison residents.
I accept Corrections Minister John Elferink is aware of the breaches of human rights standards present, with need to replace them with better purpose-built facilities and programs.
A challenge for all legislators is for them to provide adequate support for required improvements.
The challenge for all voters is for them also to support the required improvements.

Yes, I agree. Australia should model our prison system on Norway’s.

Mantle of mental health care withdrawn
Once again the Criminal Lawyers Association of the Northern Territory president Marty Aust claims people on custodial supervision orders are almost always housed within prisons because nowhere else is suitable for them.
Is my opinion the Criminal Lawyers Association of the Northern Territory wears racist blinkers on this.
The Criminal Lawyers Association of the Northern Territory’s attack upon the NT Government ignores simple facts.
Decisions to provide leases to provide suitable housing placements for these mentally disadvantaged individuals within or closer to their communities rests with their relevant corporate Land Trusts.
Have these relevant corporate Land justs provided the relevant long term leases?
If not, why not?
What efforts and what successes achieved by the Criminal Lawyers Association of the Northern Territory towards obtaining relevant required leases to accommodate these individuals?
At this time the NT Government is unable to resume land, despite Constitutional requirement for payment of “just compensation”.
Are these really needed sites?
The sounds far to much like pass the buck.


Make Oz Day a celebration of the future, not the past
The logical and legitimate historical relevance is that Australia became an independent self-governing Commonwealth nation with Federation on January 1, 1901.
Our formal functions need to stick with the first Federation timetable, nothing before noon, as logical to enable majority recover from their New Year celebrations in time to attend and enjoy.


Australia Day: Alice’s role in it
Fit as well for Northern Territory to lead promotion to replace 26 January with 1 January which is anniversary the establishment of our Commonwealth of Australia.
IMHO requirement we would need to ensure NO ceremonies before noon to ensure all recover from their New Year celebrations in time to attend.


NT and SA amalgamation: Would they have us?
A treaty proposal as little more than a promotion of permanent racism, a promotion of permanent apartheid, a promotion of the ongoing disadvantage of many, within Australia.

Perhaps Alex can explain what each Land Trust as corporate land-title-holder and owner, actually spends building and maintaining housing being used by their shareholders “traditional owners” who do live on their land-title-held land ?
Perhaps Alex can explain what each Land Trust as corporate land-title-holder and owner actually collects as rent to be spent building and maintaining housing used by their shareholders and “traditional owners” who do live on their land-title-held land?
Perhaps Alex can explain the Commonwealth and NT Government financial contributions to benefit each land-trust-titled area?
Please include also the dollars per resident.
