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

Protect and serve … great words. Having the the police stationed at liquor outlets has had a very desirable flow-on effect to the whole community. This is both protecting the community and serving it by reducing alcohol related crime.
Naturally our Whinger Ninjas all bleet that this policy discriminates and targets by profiling. They are probably correct, but I guess historical evidence backs up this profiling.
Having the police stationed at liquor outlets is the best deterrent. Our local drinkers have respect for the police but none whatsoever for security guards.

Albrecht oval lights a boon for sport, town: Cricket boss
Wonderful to hear from you Simon. Good to know that you don’t care about anyone but yourself or is that just how you come across. Sorry to disappoint but I’m not feral enough to live on the Old Eastside but by reading your tirade you certainly have all the prerequisites for that suburb e.g. whiny and self-indulgent.
I love your referencing of the Gardens Oval in Darwin. I can’t remember seeing any housing nearby or is it the Casino that you are worried about, perhaps it’s the amphitheater.
But I have to admit you have given all the readers a perfect example of what a NIMBY is. I just wonder if you complain to all and sundry if your neighbours leave their backyard lights on.

I agree James but there will always be those narrow visioned few that believe their personal rights far outweigh something that could be for the greater good.

Amazing amount of knowledge of prison procedures expressed possibly balanced only by the complete lack of knowledge and understanding of how the cottage facility works.
It is possibly not surprising if your knowledge base is gleaned from 4 Corners or from a friend who knows somebody that once worked or visited there.
