Comment on Gunner re-opens the Rivers of Grog floodgates by Chris2.

What, good unarmed basically trained security guards with no more power than Joe citizen hovering about the interior of a grog outlet? I doubt the outcome at the Gap where a good man got his jaw broken requiring re construction in Darwin would have been any different.
Seems to me if the police don’t like the idea of being a visible deterrent out front of the former declared precincts then they need an attitude adjustment instilled from the top.
Oh, that’s right, Gunner is at the top. Gunner, who promised nothing would change when he re-introduced the totally useless banned drinkers register.
Cops at the shops would remain. But he was a clever little fast talking pollie, somewhere in that machine gun diatribe was the qualification “over the Christmas period”.
Now any of us that live anywhere near a grog shop see the consequences.

Questions raised about Alice kids in Don Dale during riot
Any transfer to Don Dale “is done in consultation with the young person, their family and legal support team as well as youth outreach re-engagement officers and child protection practitioners. When a transfer does occur ongoing efforts are made to facilitate family access”.
That’s a lot of people paid by the taxpayer. Add to that criminal damage done, transport costs, family support, medical and so on and we have a taxpayer funded industry. Sadly, if it were performance based closure would be assured.

Booze ban sign: can they be serious?
Most of the Binns Track signs and interpretive signs at Arltunga Historical Reserve are in the same unreadable condition.
Simply put, when the contract was awarded to produce these signs it would seem they forgot about our extreme climate. More taxpayer’s money littrerly burnt.

$500 hard earned to fix and nothing in consequence for the criminals. Tell me, Mr Gunner, how does that work?


Torrent of toxic Facebook posts after Mall melee
It is apparent that Mr Gunner and cohorts including Seldom Seen Snowden have tapped out on law and order.
So petrified that Aunty ABC and the journalist who bought about the royal commission will butter up for a second serve, Gunner hides and denies that Alice is a bee’s whisker away from anarchy. Where do we go from here?
