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.

When Kilgariff was at the kerb and guttering stage with a few foundations we had a fair drop of rain and driving past on the highway I observed the kerbs were not visible under the water and I thought how quaint to keep the new suburb in keeping with some other parts of Alice Springs with poor drainage.
