Comment on Desert Knowledge precinct preferred for youth detention facility by Evelyne Roullet.

Why not having a called / compulsory general meeting with all the parents of the recorded juvenile offenders?
May be we will find out what are the deep reasons for the children be neglected:
Lack of proper housing?
Alcohol / drug addiction?
Low self esteem?
Normal teen rebellion with no fear of punishment unless it is corporal?

Shame on us, Australia.

Warlpiri don’t want Zachary Rolfe murder trial to be in Darwin
If the JUSTICE wants us to believe this court case is genuine, not bent, let the trial be in Alice.

Curfew: What else could fix youth crime?
“A curfew is incompatible with the human rights and freedoms recognised or declared in the international instruments” accepted by Australia.
What about: “Everyone should enjoy all the rights in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.” Article 3: “Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.
“We all have the right to live in freedom and safety. No one should be arbitrarily killed, or deprived of their liberty without good reason.”

The Minister may ask the Council to assess whether the declaration for a heritage place or object should be revoked.
