Comment on ‘Child One’ behind bars: Who could, should have helped? by Surprised!.

Well I guess the police did their bit, after all they caught the lad.
I especially like the use of the word impotent in the article.
Perhaps that could be used as a metaphor for the other agencies that should have been involved.
We pay taxes for the government agencies to do their job and pay mores taxes when they don’t. Then the victims of the crimes pay yet again.
It doesn’t make any sense to me but we keep voting in the pollies based on empty promises.
As the song goes “when will they ever learn…”

Surprised! I am guessing Maya did mean what if …
Unfortunately if I am correct, it’s actually a comment with racial undertones.
For the record, I don’t care if he was white, black, yellow or green.
My opinions would be exactly the same.
Why do some keep perpetuating the racial side?
It has nothing to do with race, it’s about breaking the laws and accountability for one’s actions.
When people talk about or ask about colour, they are the ones promoting racism.

@1 Maya, I am guessing you meant to say “Imagine, just imagine, if this boy had been white”.
Is that correct?

I’m with Janet Brown on this. She puts it succinctly and eloquently.


Police seek information after attacks on two women
When I go walking my dog at night, I carry a knife for protection.
It’s about risk assessment. The risk of being attacked or menaced is a lot higher than being caught by the police, so it makes sense.
In the unlikely event I get caught by the police, I’ll cry that I had a bad childhood or use the race card and the court system will let me go with a smack on the wrist.
To do otherwise would be seen as racially prejudicial.


Robbed man gets empty wallet back
Wow, those girls must be so fu**ing tough. To be able to rob a 71 year old. Perhaps we could nominate them for some kind of award.
How about the Sewer Rat Award? We could get one of the piss weak pollies to be MC.


Suddenly everyone is talking about 1Territory
Why is it that the pollies who did this are not held to account?
Surely in the legal system there is an avenue as there would be for former company directors?
I wish 1Territory the best of luck and they will get my vote.


Wakefield insists on Anzac Oval, ignores majority
Steve Brown: You raise some excellent points Steve, however you seem to be overlooking one very important fact.
If the government wanted to consult the masses, they should have taken the opinions more seriously.
The fact that they didn’t, is disrespectful to the taxpayer. So, was it just lip service?
I think you’ll find that this may be what has pissed people off.
