Crims terrorise Gillen, three cops attacked
I don’t envy the police in Alice. It must be so disheartening to know that whatever they do these criminals will be back on the streets the next day with a slap on the wrist for them to do it again.
Simply go to your court case and mention your upbringing and offer a lawyer drafted apology and the judge will take pity and release you with stern words.

Wow! Goes to show the concept of helping your own people with strong culture doesn’t include when you have lots of money.
Greed affects people of all races.
I’m willing to bet the rich end of the companies lives nowhere near a community and enjoy a millionaires lifestyle in somewhere like Sydney, but are probably first to put their hand out and cry enough isn’t been done to help their people.
More focus on who needs the money, stop making the 1% richer and richer.
Most of these royalties should be spent on housing and lifestyle for these people and not given to a select few but all.

Why can’t we have people who genuinely want help to make our community better, and not just for their own selfish social or political gain?
When the community cry out for something, do something! It’s not hard.
