Comment on The Alice: celebrate the good, fix the bad – now! by Sharon.

Maybe Debbie feels safe walking across the Wills Terrace bridge at 9pm at night, I didn’t even feel safe walking across it at about 5pm, especially when I was nearly assaulted on that bridge, by a group of Aboriginal youths. They had already harassed a couple of other women with a baby with them when I was on the bridge. Once they had finished with the two women they ran back to harass me and one of them took a swing at me. I reported the incident to the police and they said they couldn’t do anything. Quite a few other times, I have been and I have also seen others being accosted on that bridge, by groups of youths, at various times during the day and night.

“In which state is Alice Springs,” asks 000 operator as armed thugs threaten to kill
Wouldn’t surprise me if a lot of other people didn’t know where Alice Springs was. When I used to work in the Alice Springs Post office, I saw addressed envelopes that had Alice listed in every state and the ACT, and even saw letters with stamps on them from post offices all over the country.
