Comment on Masked cops with assault rifles, but where are the parents? by Erwin Chlanda.

Hi “Ged” (may I encourage you to use your full name?): Why do you think Commissioner Kershaw provided footage, or the opportunity of obtaining it, to media showing masked TRG members with military-grade assault weapons travelling in armoured cars, when he was being interviewed about police strategies relating to children in Alice Springs?
And why do you think Chief Minister Michael Gunner felt compelled to tweet subequently: “Police are active in Alice but I can guarantee there are no assault rifles or camouflaged police on patrol. The TRG are in town to support General Duties officers with specialised operational assistance re equipment for night time patrols. All straightforward stuff.”
Stand by for more, I’m working on an update.
Kind regards, Erwin Chlanda, Editor.

Hi Hal: Because of the absurd secrecy that surrounds this process we can only guess that it was triggered by a comment Cr Cocking made about a report headed “Let’s have an Australia Day when we are ready for it” which we published on January 31 this year.
