Comment on What the open letter didn’t say by Old Maate.

Alcohol restrictions aren’t stopping the youth at night. If we know the cause of the problem why aren’t we addressing the issue.
I think this letter is the only thing they can do (apart from addressing the issues).
They aren’t fooling anyone but, the story was based on facts and I’m sure 99% of locals they would agree with it.
I wish it wasn’t so but it is and not talking about it isn’t going to fix it.
The first warning to give people who visit is … don’t walk around at night, and especially not down the mall or Gap Road. Sad.

If only there were unemployed people around who could perform handyman duties (or be training in them) as required, with Housing picking up the tab.
