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

@ Erwin: I agree with what Hal Duell says. After the recent Royal Commission you cannot touch these children.
As I have recently travelled through Coober Pedy, Murray Bridge, Meningie who all share the same issues, but they appear to have it under control due to better policing. It was a pleasure to be there.
I have also noticed how clean these towns are, even they too have the Indigenous population.
Alice Springs is filthy. It is time Alice Springs stops papering these people just because the town rides on the back of Indigenous people for financial survival.
If Alice Springs wants tourists, [our tourism managers] need to go and see other towns.

Firm ‘no’ from PM, Scullion to bailing out ‘bankrupt’ Territory
It’s about time the Commonwealth had opened their eyes. The Territory, especially Alice Springs, is a black hole when it comes finances.
It is time they start raising their own revenue as they have relied on Federal funding for far too long.
The rest of Australia is starting to wake up, that investing in the Territory is not good value.

The Territory is broke
It’s laughable as the Territory wanted to become a state. So much for self governing. Nothing has been achieved. Too much money wasted.

The Territory is broke
It’s no surprise. Never seen a state / territory run so poorly.

We need more police. True or false?
False. We do not need any more police just police who are going to work.
Remember the issues in the NT are mostly Indigenous crimes. We need to control the Indigenous. Where are we going to get the funding for extra police when the NT is broke?

Flag on the Hill: When No became Yes
@ Concerned Rate and Tax Payer: Well said! My family have been in the great wars. We do not recognise the Indigenous flag.
