Comment on Most comprehensive overhaul of youth justice system: Gunner by Bev Emmott.

And while we are at it – youth are also going to Adelaide but according to St Johns Ambulance they cover every state except SA – rather ironic since Flinders Medical students come up here for training as part of their course and the specialists mostly come from Adelaide.
The other irony is that although the hospital sends people down south by plane when they need specialist treatment you have to be in Alice Springs to get that so if an accident occurs down near the border and the person has St Johns cover in the NT they to get cover have to be taken to Alice Springs but in serious cases then transferred by air ambulance to Adelaide – wasting precious time which just may save a life.
How ridiculous is this system.
Another irony is that the people in Alice Springs records can be accessed in Adelaide but possibly not in Darwin since the Darwin doctors are not coming here.
Who made this decision – the same ones that started a branch of the CDU in Sydney but not in Adelaide – both places have their own unis so why the discrimination?
This is the most pathetic situation possible. Why don’t they do something about it before some die because of their stupidity and cruelty.
Young and old are at risk, so who is responsible?

Allegations, no proof on bottlo shut-down
No proof and the police can close the shop down – that is supposed to be illegal so maybe Reece Kershaw should be charged.

This is not supposed to be a police state – being run by the police who just decide to close down shops without proof.
