Comment on No youth detention facilities in residential areas: MLAs by James T Smerk.

Watch’n: It’s because unlike school kids, these kids have probably never been to school or dropped out when they were very young as their parents neglected to make schooling mandatory.
They don’t have respect for anyone or anything and are constantly looking to break things or intimidate people, as they have most likely had a poor upbringing regarding social interaction and lacked loving parents.
Unfortunately this government doesn’t want any form of labels being stuck to them so they are more likely to do nothing. I have heard the courts are choosing not to send kids to detention because it’s “broken” and they can’t manage the kids there so they are just smacking them on the wrist and setting them free. Except for the really bad ones who start riots.
The fact is, yes, these are kids but you still need to be firm with them and have protection for their minders to restrain them when the need arrives.
And yes, if these were my kids trying to self-harm by head-butting the wall and spitting at guards then I would want them strapped in with a spit mask.
Harden up Government, the people want action now!

Fighting “for what’s right” would include having a deterrent for not breaking the law, and repercussions for breaking the law!
Not fixing this problem won’t fix anything. Allowing kids to not be punished for crimes is inviting the development of serious offending adults, with no future for them and their families.
Maybe there should be more talk amongst parents and shaming when they don’t do what they should do.


Man charged with sex offence, boy with multiple thefts
In a small town this should be on the tips of everyone’s tongues. But no, just business as usual, and if anything a slow news day. Sad.

‘Catastrophic’ drop in construction work
And yet I still can’t get a tradie around for a quote for house upgrades, because they are too greedy for juicy Government works.
Rare to find a tradie nowadays who doesn’t own multiple properties early on in their work life.
I chose the wrong career path obviously.


Drug charges as large amount of cash confiscated
I don’t see why the police don’t offer a small incentive for dob in a dealer. Give a $1000 cash payment for confirmed information and I’m sure some of these desperate druggies will dob in a dealer they don’t like.
I’m sure there are even people that aren’t druggies but are aware of some people that deal, easy money!
