Comment on Police injured: Three incidents in one week by Surprised!.

While the Government continues to allow attacks on police, things will get worse.
Simply put, by having no serious penalties for attacks on police, our pollies are actually encouraging this disgusting behaviour.
It will get to some point, where someone gets badly hurt!
It is the employer’s lawful responsibility to provide a safe workplace, in this instance it’s the Government. While policing is of course a higher risk workplace, the Government still retains that responsibility, but more importantly should be held accountable when they neglect.
By doing nothing, attacks on police will continue and unfortunately get worse.
When some poor police officer shoots someone who is attacking them, all the do-gooders will be up in arms and the pollies will be running around like mice in a grain shed.
The unfortunate police officer will be subjected to all sorts of shit, because they were simply going about their job and got attacked.
Well, if I carried a gun in my job and had to use it, I would.
So, yet another challenge for the gutless fat cats, protect the police in their jobs, come down heavy on those who assault police, or be prepared for what happens.

Police injured: Three incidents in one week
Beverley, you have clearly had a traumatic incident.
My point though, is that the police need to ALWAYS be respected and supported in their jobs.
They should not be above the law. If they break the law, they too should be held accountable.
But, most police are professional and their job is to deliver the messages (rules) of the governments that we vote for. So, it’s unfair to attack the messengers.
If we continue to encourage these attacks on the police as the government is now doing, we will end up in an ugly anarchical society with the ironic twist of hoping the police will help us.

Unfortunately unless the powers to be take this seriously, people may take matters into their own hands.


CAAMA must show why it shouldn’t be under administration
@ Jeff: Unsure Jeff how the word racist got into this.
A failing business is a failing business. The fact that ORIC have issued a show cause notice, clearly suggests that in their eyes there are some serious financial irregularities in the organisation.
My question is why isn’t this organisation supporting itself?

Assange must not be abandoned
There will always be secrets. Unfortunately they are sometimes necessary for strategic reasons but also due to the fact that in some cases people can’t deal with the truth or that can’t keep a secret.
Perhaps concentrate on the secrets that our government is keeping from us first. Then if there is time pursue other causes.
When we criticise the government we need to ask ourselves, did I vote for them?


A troubling snapshot of disadvantage
It was once the parents’ responsibility and when that was stopped it became the school’s responsibility, then the employer’s. It’s time the parents were allowed and made to take on the responsibility.
