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

Dylan Voller’s mistreatment started in Alice Springs
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.

Fiscal emergency: Get rid of Ministers, says Opposition
I believe most NT public servants are NOT incompetent. I am sure most work as best they can.
Australia wide public servants directly accountable to Government of the day, less to Parliaments.
Political party dominance appears to reduce Parliamentary accountability of the government.
Political parties seem to regard elections as a winner gets all, with reduced accountability.
IMHO the NT needs to introduce selection of the NT Administrator by popular vote.
A popularly elected Administrator should select eight ministers to manage “The Administrator’s” NT Government, with a maximum of one third of MLAs, from elected MLAs to ensure they remain accountable to the Legislative Assembly, thus to voters.


Firm ‘no’ from PM, Scullion to bailing out ‘bankrupt’ Territory
Re: Evelyne Roullet Posted January 16, 2019 at 6:30 pm.
The entire NT is a puppet on Commonwealth string. It is the Commonwealth which overturns many NT Government rules.


Firm ‘no’ from PM, Scullion to bailing out ‘bankrupt’ Territory
The Northern Territory will remain a dependent state of the Commonwealth, until the Commonwealth Parliament ends its racial apartheid policies.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison, as former Treasurer, surely knows the disadvantage imposed on the Northern Territory by the Commonwealth’s Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Act.
The Commonwealth’s racist apartheid policies, with a lack of conventional responsibility and accountability, remain an ongoing obstruction to meaningful progress within the Northern Territory.
The Commonwealth will remain a primary source of funds for the ALR(NT) lands until this racist act is amended.
The Commonwealth Government misleads those living upon ALR(NT) lands that “Arbeit macht frei” (work sets you free, a slogan the Nazis applied to Jews in the concentration camps), when for decades the Commonwealth has maintained by legislation their disadvantages.
The Act requires the acceptance of racial division of Australians with “special benefits” involving separate responsibility and accountability.
The Commonwealth’s imposition of racial apartheid, racial segregation, denial basic rights and responsibilities remains a disgrace to most Australians.
The proportion of the national teen suicide rate directly relates, with all the related disadvantages experienced, to the Commonwealth’s ongoing promotion of apartheid policies.
Senator Nigel Scullion has been long aware that Australian families are denied their rights to live together, to visit each other, when they reside in the Commonwealth’s racially divided Northern Territory.


GST billions yet we’re still the basket case
Steve Brown Re: Posted January 9, 2019 at 5:07 pm “the sloth and dependence created by a truly socialist system, thanks to an over supply of untied, directionless funding.”
Left out is the gross lack of liability and public accountability provided by Commonwealth to Aboriginal Landrights (NT) corporate owner Land Trusts and their managers the Land Councils.
No other private corporate land owners are provided funds with such lack of accountability.
No other private or corporate land owners and managers receive million of dollars providing them assets without leases, without risk of loss.
The Commonwealth maintains lack of accountability spending million on maintenance and workers, all on this privately owned land without conventional leases.
The Commonwealth clearly prepared waste public funds directly and indirectly, with its ongoing promotion and protection of racism.
The Commonwealth needs to amend its ALR(NT) to ensure these corporate land owners hold same rights, must satisfy same responsibilities, face same public accountability, as other Australians and other private landowners.
The Commonwealth’s racist barriers to accountability for ALR(NT) corporate owners is the main reason these communities are effectively incapable of being self-sustainable.
Australians voted overwhelmingly in 1967 to remove barriers, particularly government barriers, to equality of opportunity.
The Commonwealth maintains same barriers today.
The 1967 referendum was to ensure equality of legal rights and legal responsibility, no more, no less.


The financial crisis in the Northern Territory
The primary disadvantage for NT in the past was, is still now, and appears ongoing, has been Commonwealth racist treatment of Australians, particularly in the NT.
The Commonwealth did not dump racism, instead it dumped measurable needs, promoting instead its use of racial tags for Australians.
The Commonwealth discriminates between Australians using racial identification as their measure, repeatedly claiming this repugnance most Australians find acceptable, it is not acceptable, indeed IMHO it remains a legal breach of our Australian Constitution.
The Commonwealth racist methodology does not distinguish between the well-off and others not well off, let alone those who have lifetime experience of deprivation.
The Commonwealth argues lawfulness to deny Australian families their otherwise held right to live together based on its racial testing of Australians.
The Commonwealth promotes racial identification of Australians, to qualify our legal rights, our legal responsiblities, our equality, as Australians.
Commonwealth promotes denial of assistance to Australians who clearly satisfy acknowledged levels of “need”, denies assistance to Australians who clearly demonstrate ongoing deprivation, for the Commonwealth defines the difference using the Commonwealth’s racial test.
Commonwealth racist methodology provides funds to individuals who do not need them using wealth tests, provides funds to individuals or groups who fail measurable standards of need tests for such assistance.
Commonwealth dumps measurable needs, promoting use of racial tags.
It is not a race thing for me, it is both a “rights” and a “needs” thing.
