Comment on And now, your friendly neighbourhood prison by James T Smerk.

The saddest part (for the town’s image) of this story is the location.
I’m just thinking of those tourist passing through or staying in town arriving through the Gap and driving into town via Gap Road, they go down the road that most locals know as “the Bronx” and see these prison like dwellings, not a good image and this doesn’t help the town.
The people coming up with these brilliant ideas not doubt have no vested interest in making Alice Springs great again (not a Trump reference).

Wow, the neighbors must be real happy about that. Sorry about your property values.

Isn’t there already a space like that on the other side of the river that never gets used?
Are we going to ignore the fact it would be right beside where drunks like to party and sleep, making it not the safest environment for children?
Also, the Riverside bar which would be opposite it, I’m sure anyone who is familiar with this area knows the danger in drunks fighting during the day, loitering out the front and down the road and dodgy kids who walk around testing all the car doors for an unlocked one.
It is a good idea just a dodgy spot, if they are going to build the Art Gallery then in that big patch of grass in front of it would be a better spot.

Wouldn’t be surprised to find someone making these decisions has shares in bottle shops, with the floor price increase with bottle shops keeping the excess cash (no going to victims of crime), police providing security work (when they should be employing local security firms instead) for the bottle shops and now this … why not put some of this money and resources towards helping people with drinking problems or victims?
