Comment on Damien Ryan’s youth curfew dilemma by Scotty.

Night Patrol. Youth Bus. What a waste of money.
Police. They are too busy in this town. Do you expect them to enforce the curfew?
I have a great idea. Remember when you were young and respected police.
If you didn’t they would kick you up the arse and then take you home and tell your parents what you had been up too.
Your dad would then belt you for getting into trouble.
Nowadays, and it will get worse, kids think they can do what they want.
Damaging property and assaulting innocent persons.
The day will come when they pick on the wrong person.

‘Cop will be labelled for the rest of his life as a blackfeller killer’
@ John Bell: Agree with you totally John. Wouldn’t it be great to put these keyboard warriors in a training scenario where they have to deal with an edged weapon attacker.
Now after they do get stabbed (which they will) think about real life. You are dead possibly. Police have a right to defend themselves, gun v edged weapon.
Don’t attack police. Why do police carry guns. To protect themselves and others.
@ Davo: You watch too much US TV shows.
@ FTP: Like to see you disarm armed offender on edged weapon. Read John’s comments and study edged weapon v gun situations (Youtube).
@ Confused: Refer above.

“The new ones, the young ones – maybe their uniform makes them tough. So they shoot a black man.”
I don’t think so. So all new and young police officers are like this? Are all young Aboriginals criminals?
The truth is the a lot of young Aboriginals today have no respect for the law. Always breaking in, assaulting people, stealing, etc.
Now we have a situation where the young Aboriginal assaulted an innocent person who was a police officer. Bit off more than he could chew. Now all the do-gooders are saying he was a top bloke. I think we are smarted than that.
Maybe this will sink into the other young Aboriginals who think they can break the law without penalty.

A teen lunged at a Police Officer and stabbed him. The Police Officer has the right to defend himself with his firearm. He is a man or woman and wants to return home to his family.
Remember the offender in this matter is the teen who attacked Police first.
The victim in this matter is the Police Officer. Stop making excuses for people who do the wrong thing and pay the consequences.


I climbed Ayers Rock
I have not climbed your rock.
Now we are not allowed to climb your rock.
So now can you stop climbing our fences and breaking into our property?


Youth crime: compassion alone is no solution
Erwin, on occasions I have disagreed with articles that have been published.
I have to say I totally agree with your analysis of this article.
Great work.
