Comment on Masked cops with assault rifles, but where are the parents? by Fred the Philistine.

@ Erwin: I agree with what Hal Duell says. After the recent Royal Commission you cannot touch these children.
As I have recently travelled through Coober Pedy, Murray Bridge, Meningie who all share the same issues, but they appear to have it under control due to better policing. It was a pleasure to be there.
I have also noticed how clean these towns are, even they too have the Indigenous population.
Alice Springs is filthy. It is time Alice Springs stops papering these people just because the town rides on the back of Indigenous people for financial survival.
If Alice Springs wants tourists, [our tourism managers] need to go and see other towns.
