Comment on Police injured: Three incidents in one week by Surprised!.

While the Government continues to allow attacks on police, things will get worse.
Simply put, by having no serious penalties for attacks on police, our pollies are actually encouraging this disgusting behaviour.
It will get to some point, where someone gets badly hurt!
It is the employer’s lawful responsibility to provide a safe workplace, in this instance it’s the Government. While policing is of course a higher risk workplace, the Government still retains that responsibility, but more importantly should be held accountable when they neglect.
By doing nothing, attacks on police will continue and unfortunately get worse.
When some poor police officer shoots someone who is attacking them, all the do-gooders will be up in arms and the pollies will be running around like mice in a grain shed.
The unfortunate police officer will be subjected to all sorts of shit, because they were simply going about their job and got attacked.
Well, if I carried a gun in my job and had to use it, I would.
So, yet another challenge for the gutless fat cats, protect the police in their jobs, come down heavy on those who assault police, or be prepared for what happens.

Police injured: Three incidents in one week
Beverley, you have clearly had a traumatic incident.
My point though, is that the police need to ALWAYS be respected and supported in their jobs.
They should not be above the law. If they break the law, they too should be held accountable.
But, most police are professional and their job is to deliver the messages (rules) of the governments that we vote for. So, it’s unfair to attack the messengers.
If we continue to encourage these attacks on the police as the government is now doing, we will end up in an ugly anarchical society with the ironic twist of hoping the police will help us.

What REALLY goes on in our streets: Youth worker
I see a hell of a lot of passion in these threads.
It’s good being having their lives ruined by the pollies and other impotent government departments.
Unfortunately we breed a society of no blame or accountability and the pollies only endorse this by their own lack of accountability.
Send the pollies to the boot camp and boot them up the arsenal in the literal sense.
They can be accompanied by the do gooders and we may have a chance.
I note in Queensland there is some stupid law about assaults on persons over 60, so they must be condoning assault on younger people.
Good thing I’m over 60, so when I’m walking alone any potential perpetrator will know magically, that I’m over 60 and seek out a less vulnerable target.
Really! FFS, we need to super chlorinate the gene pool and sponsor the Darwin awards.


Open doors, not flogging, will reduce juvenile offending
Clearly Alan is looking through rose coloured glasses. What would be “nice” is if people could walk around without being abused, accosted or such and it would be “nice” to know our property was safe.
The aim of the government is to desensitise any issues they can’t control. Crime is one of those. Coupled with the fact that a lot of crime goes unreported for many reasons, the stats may eventually show no crime in Alice Springs. Whooa 🙂 So the pollies will have achieved their promise.
But, we keep voting for them and believe their unachievable promises and put up with their often moronic decisions.
So who is really to blame here?
Interestingly I have a friend who reported some information to the volatile substance abuse service. They asked him to send photos. They must have thought he was blind or they didn’t believe him, so he may need to send the photos with a newspaper date and GPS coordinates for verification and so that if they ever get off their arses and have a look, they can find the very obvious scene.
The government and its agencies are not taking this issue seriously.


Mayor Ryan short on answers on top issues
Perhaps “Alice Local” could shed some light on the great job the mayor and council are doing, or do you have very low expectations?


Mayor Ryan short on answers on top issues
Erwin, the editor’s note unfortunately confirms my scepticism of Damien Ryan’s suitability to continue to be Mayor.
Of the myriad of questions he could have posed to you, none seemed befitting of the topic.

Erwin, you are such a bad man. You must know that pollies and mayors and the like, only like pre vetted questions. Ad-lib doesn’t work for them.
Perhaps what you should have done, is sent your questions a month in advance, so Mayor Ryan could have had time to scramble some answers, or at least to lay the blame elsewhere 🙂
Perhaps we need to consider disposing of the Alice Springs Town Council and find another solution.
