Comment on Offenders bailed to ‘country’: An option, says police by David.

@ Jones: Well, you would think all those mentioned Aboriginal interests who were involved or still involved in the selling of grog to Aboriginal people, would have a prick of conscience and consider working with police on the “bailed to country” and bail conditions, instead of calling for more cops at the grog outlets.
In times past up in Tennant Creek, when there were good working relationships between police and Aboriginal organisations, trespass notices were taken out against persistent trouble makers from out of town in Aboriginal controlled establishments by the organisations and it would be supported by police making sure those trouble makers were on the next bus out of town.
Bail to country could work on similar lines for the whole town. There needs to be a holistic approach to this proposed option by police. There needs to be a break and respite to the ongoing problems.

Offenders bailed to ‘country’: An option, says police
Alcohol does play a big part in a lot of these troubles but right alongside this story in the Alice Springs News, is an IGA Lhere Artepe advertisement advertising liquor amongst food items available.
I wonder if Lhere Artepe representing Native Title holders of Alice Springs, will be one of the non government partners involved in giving advice to police?
First should be, that Lhere Artepe have a moral conscience and give up their grog license for the sake of Aboriginal people. Demonstrate true leadership.

End of search for Monika Billen
Authorities hold no value in trackers anymore, instead apply urban techniques and methodology whether in a search or investigating bush crime scenes.
At one time trackers were attached to every police post in the NT and played a key role in police work whether a search or crime scene.


GST billions yet we’re still the basket case
May be some commentators need to ask contractors how they have or will be affected by cuts to spending on bush communities.
That’s where many have made their dollars and for most, just on travel costs alone.


Vowles, McConnell and Collins dumped from Caucus
Spot on, Alex Nelson. It annoys me as a generational Territorian that highly paid and non-elected advisors and bureaucrats on huge salaries, but no accountability to Territory people, call the shots over people we Territorians elected.
What do we do about it? Perhaps an intervention by the Commonwealth is needed and soon.


Vowles, McConnell and Collins dumped from Caucus
The Chief Minister’s Department runs the Territory government, not the Chief Minister or his Cabinet.
The Chief Ministers Department operates like the secret service.
And this nonsense of identifying a list of the “most powerful” in the NT only helps to boost their self inflated ego.


Treasurers meet on NT fiscal crisis: No offers from Canberra
@ Liberal, 21 December, 2018: Easy to point the finger at one sector of the Territory, as usual.
At the lot that are subject to Basics Cards, unemployment and all sorts of measures foisted on Aboriginal people by government, to then be dumped on the scrap heap of society, after the many failed social experiments, the last being the “Intervention”.
The Intervention turned Aboriginal affairs backwards at least 50 years, leaving Aboriginal people voiceless and with no control to “contribute” according to you, Liberal.
