Comment on Advice on ‘insane’ air fares from blackfeller Bob Katter by James T Smerk.

Steve” “Constitution of Australia which allows the government to make and implement laws based on race”.
It’s a double edged sword, this exact section allowed the Government to do what they did to the one race.
If this aspect was removed they wouldn’t be able to finely focus on the helping the Aboriginal people, they would need to use a broad sword which would affect everyone and cost 100 times the amount. For all the wrong things the government does it does mean well.
I think they just need better consultation before acting. Much like the detention centre Royal Commission, which was set up the morning after a TV show aired (which turns out was biased and inaccurate).
I’m not saying there weren’t wrong things happening that needed to be looked at, more that they should have investigated the facts prior to committing $50m on a Royal Commission.
End of Rant.

Pack of girls attacked me, says Chinese on working holiday
I’m sure it won’t be long until there are incidents where weapons are used in ‘defence’, Unfortunately i can just see the people defending themselves being the ones that get punished and not the offenders.

Pack of girls attacked me, says Chinese on working holiday
This event will stay with this young lady for life. I hope she is able to move on from it.
It’s just a matter of time till an event occurs and someone is killed (like a coward’s punch).
God help this Government if this happens as there will be anarchy. Unfortunately I fear the people with the power won’t care until it affects them personally.

Cr Satour wants answers on ‘verbal abuse & violence threat’
Who doesn’t get threats everyday just walking down the street?
Try turning down a request for a smoke and watch the abuse start. Just a part of our Alice lives.
I think Catherine is just trying to seek attention.

Government alcohol policies a giant hangover
It just doesn’t make sense why the police have to be private security guards to these businesses.
I think you would find none of these bottle shops are Territory owned businesses anyway, so their profits are just going elsewhere.
Make them pick up the tab or better yet hire their own security.
Alcohol restrictions should be Territory wide.
We always see the actions of the few affecting the whole population, why is this not the same.

Unfolding story: Kids race ute through town
We all hear that Hal. We need to speak out and tell Dale to her face every time anyone sees her, then maybe she might do more.
I wonder what will happen when/if the kids are caught. Don’t waste police time investigating, the courts will let them off with a stern talking to, then give them a couple of days and it will happen again.
I feel sorry for the hard working police, it must be really discouraging seeing what happens.
