Comment on No youth detention facilities in residential areas: MLAs by Ian Rennie.

Why have law? Why have a police force? Why have prisons?
For all the mealy mouthed do gooders, get a life!
These “poor little children” are in detention for a reason. Youth detention is there for a reason and whilst these little darlings are in there they have the opportunity to make a conscious decision as to the direction their lives are going to take apon release.
And as such the people who are in charge need to take off the kid gloves.
Let them live in the section that they burnt down and suffer that as self inflicted punishment and have the place run by hardened, experienced corrections officers.
Let me also add that not all parents are feral, but when a government takes the place of a parent in that discipline in the home is forbidden and parents cannot even have curfew on their children, then it is the government that is feral.

St Francis House: Excellence sought and achieved
Yes, Brian Butler had a wonderful father in James Henry Butler (deceased) who shared many stories and facts with me over the years regarding his wife (Brian’s mother) who he met in Darwin and the hurdles he faced from the authorities because he wanted to marry a full blood Aboriginal woman and the fact that he was most disturbed by misconceptions that Brian was of the “stolen generation”.
The last time I saw Brian was at his father’s house in Pt Augusta at around the time of his mother’s passing and I am yet to see a man with feature so much alike of his father’s.

Robyn Lambley MLA, Independent Member for Araluen is spot on.

How much of our relationship with Aborigines is hypocrisy?
Is my refusing to apologise for any wrongs done to Aboriginal since white settlement hypocrisy?
No, it is not. Now David, give me one reason why it is and show me why living and working on an Aboriginal community makes me a hypocrite?
Should I grovel like Krudd or be a man? I will say this, Aboriginal people have no respect for people who grovel to them and I will go on to say that the initiated men that I have dealt with have my respect more than most of the two faced whites I have had dealings with.
And I am man enough to put my name up, because I am a Rennie and proud.
