Comment on Zoning: Racial segregation can start in primary school by Scotty.

Question: “If Indigenous kids can’t get to know non-Indigenous kids, how can we have a harmonious community when they grow up?”
Answer: “I don’t want my children to go to school with Aboriginal kids. My reasons and my right, refer below.”
“Many students at Sadadeen come from town camps (Hidden Valley and White Gums), experience high rates of childhood trauma, and live in some of the most socially and economically unjust suburbs in Australia,” says Ms Harrison.
My reason: “Why would I want my children to go to school with children from town camps. They are not by their doing, unhygienic, lice infected and dysfunctional. I don’t want my child subjected to that”.
Let’s bring the parents of the children over for a birthday party? No way.
Money clearly talks. Ms Harrison says the median property price for houses selling in Desert Springs is currently $708,750, and in Eastside is $527,500.
My reason: People in Desert Springs and Golf Course Area are hard working professional people. Should they be sorry that they work hand and can afford nice houses?
A lot of people in Eastside (commission houses) are on welfare and just drink all day spending the tax dollars the people in Desert Springs and Golf Course pay from their pay.

Youth crime: compassion alone is no solution
Erwin, on occasions I have disagreed with articles that have been published.
I have to say I totally agree with your analysis of this article.
Great work.


Bottle shop cops need to be brought into line: local chain
Doogety: Stop making excuses. When people stop making excuses maybe Alice Springs will get somewhere.
The offenders (yes offenders) know they cannot buy alcohol and still attempt to every day of the week. Good on the PALI officer for asking mainly Aboriginal people for ID.
It is not racial profiling, he/she is just making informed educated decision that most offenders (buying alcohol when not allowed) are Aboriginal.


Bottle shop cops need to be brought into line: local chain
For people who have been long time residents of Alice Springs and remember of how it used to be: You couldn’t go to the shops without being confronted by drunken violence.
I’d say without a doubt 99% of the offenders were Aboriginal.
Just a fact and I know that’s just a minority of a proud and lawful race. Now we have PALIs at the bottle shops and the problems have improved dramatically.
So, things have improved and now Lhere Artepe Supermarkets are complaining about a few PALI questions to people.
I have nothing to hide and have been asked many times for my ID and where I am consuming the alcohol I purchase.
Long gone thankfully are the days of illegal irresponsible service of alcohol by liquor outlets.


Lambley says Gunner won’t discuss rising crime
I have finally resorted to self protection. A firearm is in my household and if anyone breaks in I’m going to use it.
As Robyn has stated the NT (Alice Springs) crime rate is out of control.
No longer do I have confidence that government organisations (police, etc.) can protect innocent citizens. Not the police’s fault, their hands are tied.
The justice system is a joke. The offenders go to court smiling and are proud to brag to other offenders regarding their illegal acts. They get bail and re-offend. I personally think judges should be held accountable.
I have also bought a trained guard dog from interstate.
I guarantee no one is coming into my yard. You might think I am bragging or going to far.
For me my family is priority. Pity I had to resort to this to protect my residence and family in Alice Springs.


Wowser games?
Well done NT Government.
We are pulling out our team that we had organised to participate in the Masters Games.
Will not even consider participating again until full strength beer, wine and spirits are back on the menu.
We will take our money elsewhere.
Sorry to the hard working event organizers.
