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.

Most youth crime down to locals, not bush visitors
Well said Ginnia. The government is failing in its responsibility of ensuring a safe environment for its people.
Oh and I’m sure most people don’t care where the people committing the crimes come from, they just want it to stop and punishments to reflect the town’s interest.

Warrant for police search of construction firm office

Master plan for town, reconciliation plan for Australia Day
The Flags should stay as they are, they represent something that shouldn’t be trivialised with [by] adding another flag for location reasons or any other. There is nothing wrong with adding an Aboriginal flag anywhere else in Alice, maybe even a huge one on the ranges or even a huge statue up there! I feel people pushing the adding of a flag to this specific location are just after publicity and trying to stir trouble. In a town that already has enough of that. I’m sure these same people will try to pick apart what I have said to try to create an argument, when what we need are ideas and constructive thinking.
