I agree with you Alex: One part-time worker with CAALAS …

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?

… with endless excuses made and programs on offer.
The same tired methods will produce the same outcomes.
All methods? Not yet. Why not community service as punishment? Cleaning parks,streets, town camps, clearing buffel grass which after all is growing on their land.

“These kids are out at night because they don’t want to be home. Home is not safe.”
Not totally true, as I remember very well when I had to put arc mesh on my son’s window to stop him going out when I was sleeping.I can tell you our home was safe.
Like Scotty I think often about the good old school Sergeant. Not only he gave my son a kick up the arse, but locked him up for the night and took him to visit Giles House to show him what will happen if he does not change his behavior. No court, no publicity, and I did not complain but said THANK YOU.

John: Where to now, Alicians?
Into the abyss until the politicians become responsible for their portfolio and their performance: No results, no salary!
They have to stop patting themselves on the back, try to brainwash us with their grand-new ideas.
ACER’s Progressive Achievement approach is used in thousands of schools in Australia and around the world. Let’s do the same with our leaders without waiting for the next election.

Today, throughout the world, around 218 million children work, many full-time.
They do not go to school and have little or no time to play.
Many do not receive proper nutrition or care.
They are denied the chance to be children.
More than half of them are exposed to the worst forms of child labour such as work in hazardous environments, slavery, or other forms of forced labour, illicit activities including drug trafficking and prostitution, as well as involvement in armed conflict.
The 10 places where child labor is most prevalent are Eritrea, Somalia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Myanmar, Sudan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Zimbabwe and Yemen.
May be a trip to one of those countries could open the eyes of our little pampered kids here.
I am ready to sponsor one child if such a trip gets organised.

Until the culprits have to work to pay for the damages nothing will change.
I did not say the parents, the kids who have absolutely no understanding of the value of things including the clothes on their back.
“Discipline your children while there is hope. Otherwise you will ruin their lives.”
