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

‘Child One’ behind bars: Who could, should have helped?
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.

‘Child One’ behind bars: Who could, should have helped?
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…”

@ Local1: Yep agree, the employer has responsibilities, BUT this is not about the employer.
Please don’t try to shift the focus of topic, or you risk being labelled a pollie!
This is about animalistic behaviour, lets deal with that issue. Involving other parties is a pathetic attempt to shift responsibility.
In addition, if it wasn’t for this continuous types disgusting behaviours, the employer wouldn’t even be implicated anyway.

When did we accept that the norm is to “not park there, for fear our car will br trashed, stay inside after dark, be careful when walking or jogging, don’t go away for fear your house may be broken into.”
What’s wrong with everyone? Why do we put up with this crap in such a great town?
So now should I buy pepper spray or a taser, just to protect myself? Sure it’s illegal, but continual FA by the pollies will eventually force normal law abiding citizens into taking these kinds of measures in order to defend their personal safety.
Then of course, the do gooders will jump on the wagon with the poor little darlings had a hard childhood. Well, plenty of others did too, but that doesn’t give them the right to act like wild animals.
Why should we have to live like this?

You can’t choose your neighbours
The comment “Anglicare NT, which operates as a provider to Ms Wakefield’s department, is approaching neighbours after the fact – when a house has already been bought for the purpose.”
Reminds me of closing the gate after the horse has bolted.
How will that appease the neighbours?

New shield laws protect news sources, but is there a flip side?
@ Jones: I’m sure he would. He is a man of enormous integrity. It’s a pity there are not more like him.

Very disgusting. If it was a polly’s daughter we may see some real action, but alas we we’ll see some asinine, politically correct political promises, like we’re “Gunner” do this.
When will we actually do something to prevent this?
