Comment on Judge Borchers’ position should be assessed: CAALAS by Evelyne Roullet.

In physics, Newton’s third law of motion tells us that every action has an equal and opposite reaction.
In life it is called the law of cause and effect.
Even as a toddler, a child should learn that some behaviour is inappropriate and punishment will be the reaction to his/her action
Punishment is meant to deter negative behaviour, that is, to dissuade and discourage inappropriate or potentially dangerous behaviour and defiance.
A punishment must be given with love but must have impact.
The most important thing to remember is that discipline must NEVER be administered in anger.

I agree with you Alex: One part-time worker with CAALAS is not able to “work closely with EVERY SINGLE young person going through Central Australian court system, their family, community, lawyer, school and other service-providers to provide the young person with the support they need to get back on track and stay out of trouble”. But has CAALAS asked for more help?

Peter, it is obvious that we do not see or understand the same from the court transcript.
I see the judge interrupting the lawyer when the lawyer does not answer the question or has no clue.
The lawyer was not prepared and I feel this lad was misrepresented.
A judge makes judgement with the facts presented to him in a clear fashion not with “if’ and “may be”.
In a government of laws, the responsibility of the courts is to interpret and apply the law.
Each case before a court of law involves a controversy that the court must resolve as the institution in which every member of the community must have confidence. Each case presents its own unique set of facts and issues. The role of the judicial branch is to do justice according to law in each case.
As Chief Justice James Spigelman AC (Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of New South Wales 19 May, 1998,until 31 May 2011) has explained: “The desire of bureaucrats and others to measure performance risks the wood being missed for the trees.”
I feel it is the case here.

@ My view 100% with you:
Parents and educators know that love mixed with firm discipline is what produces functional happy children.
When we discipline children we show them that we care.
To discipline is not to punish, is not to command obedience, it is to teach and a disciple is a student.
The word “discipline” is from the Latin word disciplina meaning “instruction and training”. It’s derived from the root word discere – “to learn.”
Discipline is to study, learn, train, and apply a system of standards.

Michel Dean,I agree with you, it looks like a lot of talk, paper work etc but no action. I start to believe that those who govern us want to be popular, with next election in their vision, and fear to take drastic decisions.
While great leaders can do everything possible to behave in a constructive and compassionate manner, they must also understand that there are those who find meaning in destroying others while destroying themselves.

I quote Erwin Chandla “town’s kids – black and white – mingled there, became friends. This was so too for this writer’s four children raised in Alice Springs.” And I add for my four children who created great friendships there.

War memorial on a women’s sacred site: Does this describe the Alice Springs community? Wars kill while women bear and rear children.
May be Anzac Hill should be given back to the rightful custodians and the wars memorial shifted on the council lawns unless the Arrernte women agree that we keep the site but recognise them with a flag.
