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.

New energy for anti fracking campaign
As the Greek proverb goes: “A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.”
So the NT will grow great when our leaders forget their pockets and think renewal energy.
May be we will have less revenues and will suffer for a bit in the hands of the Feds, but our children will live on and well.


Central Petroleum west of Alice: No plans for fracking
Senator McCarthy says she wants to be briefed about how the inquiry’s recommendations will be implemented, and about the newly formed body.
Good for her, because that is the QUESTION!
No one can guarantee there will be no accident in any industry.
To err on the side of caution is not good enough in this case.


Fracking OK, but under ‘strict laws’ – Gunner
Domenico Pecorari: Gunner does not care about the next elections. He probably has a good CEO job or consultant reserved for him in the mining / fracking industry like Adam Giles with the pastoral industry.

@ Ban Fracking: Have you forgotten 2012 NT elections?
I was the Green candidate for Greatorex and was very upset when I was told I had to make a deal with Labor. Nothing I could do, but then I quit the party after the elections. Since then I do not trust any party.
“Political truth is mutable, relative, adaptable. It may even be absent or, worse, irrelevant; a servant to the more certain verities of power and advantage.”

We should boycott the election in a protest against the lies of ALL parties.
