Comment on Gunner re-opens the Rivers of Grog floodgates by Laurence.

Protect and serve … great words. Having the the police stationed at liquor outlets has had a very desirable flow-on effect to the whole community. This is both protecting the community and serving it by reducing alcohol related crime.
Naturally our Whinger Ninjas all bleet that this policy discriminates and targets by profiling. They are probably correct, but I guess historical evidence backs up this profiling.
Having the police stationed at liquor outlets is the best deterrent. Our local drinkers have respect for the police but none whatsoever for security guards.

Ms Roullet is usually very vocal on those that use pseudonyms always invoking words of disdain for those that do – unless it seems you agree with her.
But the funny thing is, this interesting sidelight is a direct comparison with people on “issues of concern” when asked for proof of the latest “hot topic” all we tend to receive are cry’s of “denier” and denunciations of the opposing viewpoint.
Go figure.
