Comment on Coniston Massacre remembered by Kathy.

Besides being a tragic event for both parties in the attack of the white settlers and the fight with the Aborigines, all is part of the past, not a blame game for the future generations as this is being made into and publicised.
No one was in the right and we should learn from the past mistakes and move on, not wallow in the past.

Policing is still just a numbers game
If it was a murder, the police could get to the murderer. Why is the government not letting this also happen to offenders that continually endanger peoples lives by throwing stones at vehicles.
