Comment on Dylan Voller’s mistreatment started in Alice Springs by Evelyne Roullet.

@ Fred the Philistine, Quote: “I agree children should not be bashed around, but if they want to act like animals then maybe they should be treated like one”. End of quote.
Cruaulty to animals is not permitted in our country. May be we should ask the RSPCA to take over the management of our detention centers, and the prisoners will be treated with dignity.
Words of some Australian leader Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull: “We have very, very strong animal welfare standards.
“We condemn cruelty to animals – full stop.”
Greyhound racing will be banned in New South Wales from July 1 next year, with Premier Mike Baird saying the “widespread and systemic mistreatment of animals” cannot be tolerated.
I will copy the words of Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King, because I believe that racism is the biggest saddest factor in this drama: “Racism oppresses its victims, but also binds the oppressors, who sear their consciences with more and more lies until they become prisoners of those lies. They cannot face the truth of human equality because it reveals the horror of the injustices they commit.”
Too many Territorians are still coming out of the first fleets.

Yes Phil, and we should also keep in mind that quite often the misbehaviour of a child is a cry for help.
When a child misbehaves, we need to weigh up factors such as context, background and timing before deciding how to react. Many children are being punished for behaviour they cannot control, or that has justifiable cause.
There could be a number of reasons for misbehaviour:
To gain attention.
Lack of skills to deal with the situation differently.
Forgetting the rules or limits.
Children need limits. They need safe rules within which they can make choices, have responsibility and experience success.
Limits must be clear and consistent! Inconsistency leaves children uncertain about what they can and cannot do.
“It’s not my fault!” Blaming others is modeled for the children on a daily basis: by adults, their peers, in the news etc.
We just have to listen to our so called leaders who put responsibility aside and put the blame of any bad situation during their mandate on their predecessors!

Maybe we should model our system Norway’s.

We live in a very strange world:
We cannot smack the children when they are naughty; we cannot have a curfew to keep them off the streets; but we can torture them when they become criminals.
No, Original Centralian, it is not “alright for these ‘children’ to hold our town to ransom, forcing the citizens of Alice Springs to lock themselves into their homes after the sun goes down every night”.
But neither is the treatment they received at the detention center.

Yes Chiara, I was teasing you. Bilby is nocturnal, but a nice wallaby with a joey in her pouch and one by her side would please the children even more.


NT Govt persists with push for Anzac Oval ownership
@ Ms Moss: “The only thing we are clear on is that Alice Springs residents support the National Aboriginal Art Gallery being built in Alice”, but we will prefer a cultural center, in collaboration with the Aborigines, because art is part of culture. This Center seems to have been forgotten.
You have made it clear that Anzac Precinct is your preferred site, and we have made it clear that we do like this site. You always said “preferred” which implies there are other choices.
You wish to continue to engage with council about how to transition the site to one owner, being the Northern Territory Government.
What cannot you understand, that the Anzac Oval is not the property of the council, but of the taxpayers and they do not want to give the oval to a bully government who cannot be trusted as many of us wonder what is the hidden agenda behind this charade.
You have only twi years left in government.
Do you really want us to believe the project will be done in time? You have no site, no design nothing to put in!
It will take more than two years to achieve your goal if it really is your goal.

Chiara, the children love this rabbit, every week when we go to town, they climb on the stand, say hello and give him a carrot.


Street art: life cycle of the Yeperenye in giant mural
We obviously do not need an Aboriginal art gallery.
Aborigines lived outdoors and street art is the best to show it.
All those horrible metal fences should be used for displaying Aboriginal culture.
This would attract: Alice – the only Aussie town with no metal fence or blank walls.
Tour buses stop to allow tourists to take photos of the Coles mural depicting the history of Alice Springs; in the same way they could tour the town.


Four charter flights from Japan to Alice Springs
Yes, Trevor, I remember the talks to have an international airport in the Center where all domestic airlines would have departed (makes sense).
But money talked, all cities wanted revenues from international flights and now they complain about congestion and noise.
Money before common sense = problems.
