@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…”

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.


Fewer pokies, help for gambling addicts
Yep. Reduce the number of cars and there will be fewer car crashes too.
We have a habit of trying to solve issues from the effects rather than the causes, and we continue to go round in circles and spend millions in the process.
Gambling is a way of life, good or bad.
It’s been around forever and will be around forever.
For those who haven’t heard of Broard Arrow near Kalgoorlie, it was an out of the way to play two up and not be caught by the law. It’s now a bit of a tourist attraction.
People will find a way and place to gamble even if all the pokies are removed.
Surely education and treatment are the keys!


The millions and the misery
Couldn’t have expressed it better, Jones. If the taxpayers see more than anecdotal results for their hard earned money, they will be more inclined to be positive about their money being spent on organisations like Congress.
Where there is political spin, the taxpayer becomes cynical.
I am still bewildered as to how the hell can they (Congress) can have a $20m underspend?


Cops nab alleged grog runners
It’s not about the amount of money or quantity, it’s about the amount of damage to people’s lives, both primary and secondary that this disgusting conduct results in.
I say throw the book at them and jail time. Forget about a penalty of picking up empties as that may encourage “customers”.


Congress probe: ORIC will only outline process
I think you’ll find that annual financial reports have to be submitted between July 1 and December 31.
Auditing however, is different and typically done for different reasons..
