Comment on Night bus service for kids isn’t fixing the problem by Michael Dean.

I remember in 2011 there was a problem and about 30 police were sent here from Darwin and they had a very visible presence on the streets.
Maybe it’s time for a rethink or revisit of this surge.
I personally know of people who didn’t go to Finke for fear of having their property interferred with.
This is affecting business and tourism in the town.
While we can debate the value of a few extra hours of bus service (what the hell is that about anyway? Rewarding poor behaviour with a free ride home to brag to your mates about?) a determined approach is needed to curb all the damage and violence going on.
Council can contribute but only so much.
Mr Gunner, look down, we are down here.

‘Royal Commission report will live as stain on the NT’
I don’t want children held in detention shackled, I don’t want children put into isolation. But, I also want the children to know that there is a penalty to pay for stealing, throwing rocks, assaulting people etc.
Putting the kids up in a new facility, being fed, clothed, showered and playing games to amuse them and stop them from being bored seems more like a reward.
