Comment on Politicking or community: What to do about youth crime? by James T Smerk.

Council need to stop focusing on climate change and start focusing on something they can do something about, making the town attractive to tourist and do something about kids and crime.

Politicking or community: What to do about youth crime?
The fact of it is the culture is in free fall.
The once noble and respected ways of the past are no more and it really is a free for all now.
Trying to hold one others accountable and make them respect other tribes’ wishes isn’t ever going to happen.
The only sense of pride comes from the elder generation the resulting generations aren’t interested in maintaining this grand aspect of their culture.
So while I agree with the suggestion Ted makes with giving the Arranta people more of a voice, what good is it if no one listens?

Let’s just rewrite history and leave out the people that were bad, I’m sure that’s a good idea.
Or maybe we leave things as they are and learn from them and teach kids about these things?
I can only assume there will be an audit on all street names and the same process will take place on all streets with issues or is this just a token gesture that really means nothing?
