Lock them up. Why just give them diversion. Someone will be killed by these young kids soon.
This is where money needs to be sent in Alice Springs. Crime is out of control and no one has the right answers.
If they do the crime … they do the time.

Mass rally shows fury, distrust for police, government
Interesting how you only focused on the rally and not what happened Thursday night when youths damaged businesses and also bashed a man.
We concentrate too much on rallies and other things but don’t work toward being united as one people in one country.
All the hatred now out there is dividing our country and I can see no peace between whites and blacks as there is too much mistrust. How sad for our nation. Divided we are now.

Big drops in grog crime, break-ins on way down: police
In response to Domenico Pecorari: Can I say figures can be manipulated very easily and I’m sure they have been.
The police do what they can when they arrest people but a slap on the wrist from the court system doesn’t teach the offender anything.
We have the right to feel safe in our community.
Great that hospitals are being freed up but that’s only because they go to the clinics now.
Which only allow Aboriginal persons to be treated there.
I thought we were trying to work toward a non racist society. I’m clearly wrong.

What a load of rubbish.
The police really think crime has gone down and everything is hunky dory here.
Get off your damn figures and go around the town and see what sort of nonsense is going on every day.
I thought the police do a good job but the bosses fudge the statistics.
The courts are useless and something needs to be done. A slap on the wrist is useless. If they do the crime they do the time.

Online hate speech by leading tourism figure
Seems Mr Thompson is expressing his views about what certain elements do at night by smashing windows etc.
The whole town is sick of it and businesses pay so much extra for insurance because of it.
Lock them up and throw away the key.
Nothing’s changed in 50 years with these people. The NT Government has no solution. And as for Southerners who comment and try to do something they have no idea of the problems faced here.
I don’t know of a real solution.
Excuses, excuses all the time from powers that be.

Aboriginal flag to fly year round on Anzac Hill
Wow … so now we have the Australian flag representing all the people living here in Australia and also a flag of a race of people (Aboriginal).
Can we presume we can perhaps have other races flags up there too now? Supposed to be one flag for the whole nation. No wonder there is still no real solution to the racial problems in this country when our supposed leaders divide the people.
