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.

Fiscal emergency: Get rid of Ministers, says Opposition
Good luck trying to cut spending. The NT public service has a large portion of its spending dedicated to our first people.
Unfortunately (currently) they take up a larger than proportionate amount of time from our police, hospitals, prisons and a lot more services supplied by the NT Government.
Their culture doesn’t meld with modern culture so we can’t expect to treat them with modern techniques.
The question is how to we get a round ball to fit into a square hole? The answer to this will save many many millions and lives.

Sounds like the start of backing out of the project altogether. The old “they don’t want it so we won’t do it now” as if they were ever going to.
It’s been something for them to talk about for Alice Springs whilst they have been in Government without doing anything else for the town.
I doubt they ever intended to go ahead with it, just dangle the carrot so no one ask what else you are doing for the town.
