Comment on Street kids: No Protective Custody but Care Orders by Old Maate.

It’s a joke. Dale I’m holding back calling you a name because there are too many to choose from.
Evelyne, you are dead right! We wake up people! We are sleep walking into a generational nightmare.
Imagine these kids as adults with this kind of youth development, serious adult crimes await.
Can’t help but feel our Government should be held accountable legally, this kind of neglect of the town is similar to these children’s lack of parenting neglect.
I would like to see politicians salaries based on statistical improvements, but hey, if this was the case they would be paying us.

Gallery at Anzac consult: council hurries to meet govt deadline
It isn’t going to happen and the town has no one to blame but itself for its inevitable downfall. The government should have announced it and started it that week.


Because of eight grandmothers we can
Spot on Nick, very much a blame game story.
These women are brave and should be commended for voicing their opinions however I want to hear more solutions put up and positive attitudes towards addressing the issues, not pointing out what race is in what position in what agency or looking after the kids. They are all trying to help.
So mush negativity in Alice Springs, it’s just sad.


Two escape from youth detention centre
Just a thought, maybe someone should go to Bunnings and buy a motion detector to alert someone straight away when people skip out.Might save the Government getting egg on its face every second week.


National Aboriginal art gallery in the wide open spaces?
Do all the people who don’t want the art gallery understand they are contributing to the downfall of this town?
The Government is clearly only going to do it at ANZAC oval and nowhere else, so if it doesn’t happen our town loses a bit opportunity to celebrate our country’s people.
The CBD is obviously where the action is and they want people to walk around town and spend money at the same time, which is good.
Rugby people – you get a new oval and facilities, win win.
Hippies – you keep the grass area where it is and it will look nicer.
Old people – the town needs to change to better itself.
People WHY are arguing just because they want the government to do something about crime first. They won’t, and the elders of town don’t care either, so that will never happen.
Crims – you will get more stuff to break.


Flag on the Hill: When No became Yes
I like the idea of it flying over NAIDOC week … what I don’t like is the fact that at night a gang of Indigenous youths went through the mall smashing windows and damaging trees and other items.
It would be good if we saw a reduction in crime over the week instead of celebrating it with more crime. However crime has become part of the culture of this town and will never change.
