Comment on Slow gains on exploding youth crime by James T Smerk.

It’s hard when parents don’t appear to care what their children get up to at night.
It’s sad, being a parent is supposed to be an extremely rewarding experience watching your children grow and learn, not fend for themselves and offer no guidance in life.
And who cops the flack for this stuff? The police for an apparent lack of effort.
This isn’t right, point the finger where it belongs (something the Government will never do), we all know the police do an awesome job.
It’s even sadder when these youths have great potential to keep their culture strong and develop some respect for it but they choose to just bum around and cause trouble, further harming the perception of their culture to some people (especially tourist who only see this side of them).
I believe if respect is shown it’s earned.

Aboriginal flag on Anzac Hill: the nays have it 
Why not wack a big Aboriginal Flag on another hill or even a huge one on the Mountain. ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, we are all one. There were many nationalities that fought under our flag and this monument celebrates them all!
Adding more flags will just encourage the divide to grow, we need to come together as one.


Bottle shop cops may not like it, but are needed
Dear Australian Hotels Association,
You seem to be of the belief your members are paying something out of their responsibilities as a business.
They pay what they have to in taxes! Don’t try and pass it off as an extra on top of what they are required to pay.
Best not to compare yourself to healthcare either as they help deal with the issues, while alcohol shops cause more trouble than good.
They should be supplying their own security and calling the cops if something happens.


Let’s have an Australia Day when we are ready for it
@ Laughing: Very interesting. Any comment, Jimmy?

Councillor Satour threatened at Council meeting
‘Interested’ is Correct.

But hey threats are a part of our town. Most people have walked through town and been threatened for no reason at all.
