Comment on Second Barkly child tragedy highlights need for urgent action by Paul Parker.

Community problems will continue until the Commonwealth provided personal and corporate exemptions from responsibilities ends.
Commonwealth racist support for apartheid is not a valid reason for ongoing exemption from responsibilities as land-owners or lease-holders.
Expectations are that governments must provide public monies to provide and maintain improvements in these privately owned apartheid fiefdom lands. This significantly contributes to current problems.
When these tenants’ and landlords’ responsibilities and accountability become simpler then most issues will be resolved.

Re Phil, Posted April 6, 2018 at 12:44 pm: I doubt if everyone critical of your stand re alcohol, including myself, thinks prohibition is impractical and considers prohibition would fail.
Contributions from alcohol to other offenses long recognised, while previous excuses of intoxication with alcohol mostly now fail.
Many are aware of FASD. It is essential ALL children and all persons facing custodial orders be tested for disability indicators. There must be suitable support programs.
The NT statistical results need to be regularly published.

Independents now ineffective?
To suggest a potential candidate is “no longer allowable to run as a party associated independent” appears breach principles of democracy in elections.
Such restricting claims upon candidates and elected representatives need be resolved by the High Court.
Candidates stand as natural persons, chosen by voters where they stand for election.
Why each candidate obtains voter preferences is a matter for each voter to decide.
Individual candidates when elected retain right to change their mind, their political affiliations, whenever they wish.
Elected members are judged by their voters at each election, not by others they may or may not be associate with.

“When you have a 40,000 year old culture of sharing everything, then it perfectly acceptable for 10 mates to chip in fifty bucks each to buy a bottle of rum!”
Culture is not fixed.
Culture is about acceptable behavior, sharing is part of every culture.
Each culture applies measures which reflect their environment, each adapts to suit their environment, their physical and social survival.
Culture is slow to change, yet each culture experiences ongoing change, ongoing adaptation.
Failing to recognize, to understand, limitations and changes within each cultural group demonstrates ignorance or disrespect.
Every generation re-writes what is culturally acceptable to them.
