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.

Bottle shop cops need to be brought into line: local chain
I’m a little confused here. Is the issue the racial or the profiling?
I am white, possibly by selecting the wrong parents, nevertheless I am pretty sure I’m not allowed to send my kids to Yirara College.
I need two permits to drive to WA via the great central road to be allowed to go more than x metres off the road or camp along the drive. Says a lot about caring about driver fatigue.
Am I allowed in the renal clinic on Gap Road?
If I had selected different parents, I would be allowed to do these things.
So what is different? What, really is the go here people?


Is it time for a First Nations university?
I am unsure if it’s such a good idea.
I feel it may promote the already large gap between people.
I am of the understanding that white people would not be allowed to enrol and if that is the case, it is clearly racist.
Somebody asked who would fund this, well perhaps a consortium of the royalty receivers could, so that everyone has skin in the game and hopefully work together to make it a success.
If it goes ahead, it is imperative that the standard of education be maintained or it risks insulting and undermining the Indigenous people who previously worked so very hard and achieved great heights in the existing facilities.


US military base in Darwin: what risk to NT?
We all know how desperate Gunner must be to at least put one run on the board, so perhaps it’s as simple as an injection of $300m and the ongoings from that, plus the additional spend of the military personnel.
Based on the bullshit income the government tells us the red centre Nats brings in (BTW I like the Nats) we’d be set for life!
The Gunner induced deficit would disappear like a mushroom cloud in a tornado.


Why the NT Govt sacked the volunteers managing an icon
@ AScomment: It’s about the government giving its support to this icon.
Some mentoring may be beneficial rather than heavy handed tactics.
As someone pointed out, the government can’t even get its own arse in gear, or for that matter our taxpayer money.
At least the THF hasn’t put us in any debt !
At least the THF runs on passion unlike the government who is run by parasites.
I’m a director and a CEO so I understand the importance of good governance but also understand the importance of mentoring over bullying.
It’s a pity the government can’t sort its own mess out first.
I say apologise to Liz and the crew and offer some genuine assistance.


Soy sauce now only from a bottlo
You have to be kidding ?!*!
