Comment on Cops at bottle shops: expensive bluff? by James T Smerk.

Spot on Jack. Apparently somewhere down the line someone decided the Government will give bottle shops private security (known as police) and let them get away with not having to be responsible for serving alcohol responsibly.
They can just sit back and make mass profit from the one thing that creates the most issues in this town.
I understand the benefits of what is happening but wonder why the public are picking up the tab for these private companies.
Will the police be offering security services for the casino and Club Eastside next?
Ps.: It’s not a police problem, it’s the decision makers.

As much anger as there might be from the dozen odd people, compared to the thousands who live out there who haven’t bothered to care, so your voices won’t be heard or counted. People will only care once they see the results but by then it’s too late.
The town is build around sport so the council should do everything they can to help the sporting groups.
