Comment on Little kids have the key to our future by Baron Von Knowitall.

If it were my family in this position, as a parent I would take more interest in the development / health of my child and not just expect someone else to fix it.
One key to this is ensuring kids get the best education, and at least turning up to school every day.
Parents can be proactive and demand this of their children.
It seems obvious that neglected children will always be disadvantaged.
I’m all for assisting the disadvantaged but if you really want to fix the problem we need parents to take responsibility and they must be pushing a positive attitude.
Remember, negativity breeds negativity.

Fighting youth crime, not just in office hours
More fluff and wasting money. Here is the answer: Get these kids responsible home supervision, safe home environments, make them go to school (to get them to learn about their cultural ways and modern society way).
As they get older assist in getting them into the workplace, with the focus on assisting people of troubled / disadvantaged past.
Let stop aiming at a complete race (especially those who are well off and don’t need the help but still rort the system) and start aiming at the people who need the help within that race.

15-year-old charged with assaulting police officer
Doubt it Citz. I think you will find they will get a slap on the wrist with good behaviour blah blah.
The legal system is a joke. Our poor police have to put up with so much knowing their efforts are useless most of the time.
We all know the police do a great job, it’s time the courts did the same.

Fast-tracked police recruits begin in Alice Springs
It’s always funny when these numbers are talked about. I would be curious to know what is the normal number that would be recruited over this period, and what is the real extra number?
I’m sure police leave in the meantime and these numbers might only be enough to cover the loss of people. Who knows?

Turn from endless consulting to making it happen
Just a thought: We are all talking about what to do with these kids. Shouldn’t that be a parent’s / guardian’s job to worry about that?
Let talk to these people and make them attend parenting classes to learn what to do and how to raise kids.
I don’t blame these poor kids, given some of their role models. And there lies the problem.

Real estate: Desert Springs up, Larapinta down
Wow. Larapinta down. Who could have guessed.
Ummm, just about anyone that lives in this town!
For the last 10 to 15 years it has slowly become the Bornx of Alice. Just take a lovely drive around the suburb and I bet you roll your windows up and lock the doors!
Council don’t care but because most of them live in ….
Hint: the richy rich “other” suburb mentioned in the story title.
