Comment on Temporary Beat Locations – are they on or not? by Bob the Brewer.

@ Evelyn: I have to agree with Fred. When you see skate boarders riding their boards on the footpath down the mall and police officers walk straight past not saying a word.
Or a minor accident in the Coles car part where two cars have collided, cop at bottle shop, that’s not my job I’m just here to look after the bottle shop.
It may have been minor, but still should have gone to see if everyone OK, and report it.
We’ve got one of the highest number of police per capita here and still we hear of all the crimes around the town.
And it’s not all due to Indigenous people. Maybe the police here are just not tough enough?

To walk together and be heard, the Indigenous need to start taking some pride in themselves, taking responsibility and stop blaming everyone else. Show some pride in yourselves and you will soon earn the respect that you so much desire.
Indigenous living in remote areas can do a lot for themselves, by generating income from themselves, e.g. working their land like the white man.

Lambley, Gunner slugging it out
Ms Lambley was quite correct in what she said, that the Budget was impressive and mature.
We do not need any more funds spent on Alice Springs. Let’s stop being ostriches, pull our heads out of the sand and use what we have got.
We have everything.
We need to stop the spending, not only here in Alice but in the whole NT and start reining our debt in. The NT has had it too good for to long.
The Indigenous need to stop winghing and start working together with white man. Do the Indigenous need to work for the dole, if not why not!

Court placing itself above the community?
The Indigenous do not have to be tried by white man’s law, they can be tried by their own people, but choose ours, as apparently the sentence is less severe.
On the other hand, they better start learning not to break white man’s laws.

Making the CBD vibrant, again: Detail, please.
Oops, forgot to mention about the greedy landlords. Maybe they can pull their heads in with the rents.
