Comment on No youth detention facilities in residential areas: MLAs by Watch’n.

Ok, so I did a search and NT Families have the data on their website.
There are fewer than 50 youths in detention in the whole of the NT!
How can this not be managed?
What is going on? 50 kids is two classrooms at many town schools.
I can’t get my head around how youth detention can get so out of hand when the stats are so small.
Surely, there are far more cost effective ways to punish / rehab youths who have offended.

Good luck getting anything changed at council in relation to tree planting. They are still stuck on planting trees 2 feet from the gutter on every street. At a rate of 700 a year.
