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

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.

Careful with that Jibe, Eugene: A jibe can also be an insulting remark as another way to spell gibe (to make taunting, heckling, or jeering remarks).
No one is called Eugene in this discussion, and if for some valid reason you cannot use your name, do not use a pseudo who can be humiliating and antagonising.
Now could you tell what was done, and by which services, between March and May to help this troubled, traumatised lad?

Children in care management system to cost $229m
I am in total agreement with you, Janet.
We need 24/7 youth centers that gives children safety, food, people to interact with.
If social workers fear for their jobs, they are wrong.
Volunteers will need them to run the centres.

Government is leader; leaders supposedly show example. Therefore, what is good for you is good for me.

Yes Rosalie , we need a curfew and a refuge center for the children without a caring household.

Human rights, centre stage
Congratulations to all recipients, rewards well merited.
However I agree with John

Justice is one of the most important moral and political concepts.
Latin socius means “friend.” A friend is a person who we know well and who we like a lot, but who is usually not a member of our family.
So we can wish justice even if it is not for our friends.
Social justice is a political and philosophical concept which holds that all people should have equal access to wealth, health, well being, justice and opportunity.
We have all the same rights, that is JUSTE.

Cradle! Why such name? The kids on the street, for the majority, are not babies. Many have been initiated which means they are adult members of the community.
The ages of the person being initiated varies between language groups, but usually occur between the ages of 10 and 16 years.
