Comment on Coniston Massacre remembered by Scotty.

Constable Murray was a hero. If you look back at the times they lived in and what was required, he did what was needed.
Wish he was here nowadays. Alice Springs would be a better place.
Respect Constable Murray.

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.


Five youths arrested after armed robbery
Mabel: Could not agree with a comment more than yours.
This town is out of control with Aboriginals. People are civilized and do not rob, bash, steal from innocent people.
I agree more police are needed in this town but the bigger issue is what happens to the people when they are arrested and front court.
Back in the 60s and 70s gaol with hard labour was usual. Bring back tough sentencing instead of the slap on the wrist from lenient judges.
Offenders should be responsible for their actions. No excuses brought up in court for their illegal actions. Sentencing should be harsh just like the old days.


Lhere Artepe director on aggravated assault charge
Davo: The only way you will get solutions for this town is to not be scared to say how it really is. Sorry that you seem to be a do-gooder who seems offended by the truth.
If Mr Lindner is not an Aboriginal I will say sorry but truth is he is.
There is a reason race is important to solutions in this town. Almost all offending is committed by Aboriginals. I believe this is very important. You it seems do not. Put your head in the sand again.


Lhere Artepe director on aggravated assault charge
Just another Aboriginal offender (thought to be important by title) committing a crime in Alice Springs.
I hope Erwin is pressing charges, no offender deserves to be given a free ride. Should be remanded as Greg Latency points out.
Now if you think I’m a racist, I’m not. Look at the incarceration rate of Aboriginals in Alice Springs. Now there are those who stupidly suggest more Aboriginals are in prison because the system is racist. Well that is just dumb.
If Aboriginals stop committing crimes they would not be in gaol.
[ED – I am not pressing charges. Erwin Chlanda.]
