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

I am led to believe from the court transcript that the 13 y/o turned 14 the day after the hearing. I fully support the Judge in his summary.
If anyone should be making a complaint it should be the court relating to the slack representation of the defense.
I grew up at a time after WW2 when very few people had much and the upperclass looked down on the working class but still we went to school in the hope that we could obtain enough education to allow us to get through life.
If some one was lucky enough to get up a bit we were glad for them and did not feel compelled to thieve or trash their belongings.
Most of us were working by this lad’s age.
There were deaths in families and again these did not cause riotous behaviors.

What I have always wanted to know is with a “floor price” who gets the extra markup money? I feel if the price is to be “marked up” as a control measure the extra money should go to alcohol rehabilitation.

CBD planning: The vibrants are at it again
Good one Bob but walking is good for people? and if we have angle parking look at 30 deg angle instead of 45 it allows better vision for the parked as well as the moving and does not protrude as far into the center of the road. A master plan for town construction is not much use without their being a reason for the extra population as it will just be a return to the boom and bust that we had when the government used to have development cycles pushed by construction but there was no continuing industry to take advantage of the construction. If one looks around the town there are plenty of empty commercial buildings to be seen.
