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!

Sacred sites authority mum on Melanka trees
What is the point of naming these trees as sacred? Has anyone ever been to these trees to have some kind of ceremony or learning?
All these locations around the town with sacred trees and no one ever cares enough to visit them. Hardly sounds sacred to me.
Sounds like a forgotten concept being kept alive for the point of revenue making.


Former Anzac Hill High School: time to take stock
I would be interested to know what the long term plan for this space is. It’s easy to leave it there until a project is identified, it saves money too.
Even if the gallery isn’t going there I feel they have plans for the land and they aren’t telling us anything as they don’t want the backlash they know they would get.
The public meeting / demonstration will be poor on numbers, this town is too complacent and only people who attended the school many years ago or senior people of town will show interest because of their fond memories in some way of the school.
Unfortunately kids won’t care and younger generations don’t appreciate the past so it’s doomed to fail.

I bet the public would love to follow this story through to the courts to hear what the outcome is: The “they have had a hard life excuse” is copy and pasted into every case now days.
Tell me what amount of money this has cost in damage, police and courts and what benefit the community gets out of the outcome.
I bet you will see a lot of cost involved and no deterrent for it to never happen again by these two.


The entitlement of not answering questions
Wow, being denied for being a certain colour.
I thought this was the kind of thing we (society) were trying to stop.
But hey let’s let people die instead of helping them, surely goes against the Hippocratic oath.
In our new world of inclusion sadly we still demand segregation.
