    I've been waiting 30 years for Mel Brooks to return to the nazi uniform. Of course nobody is going to bitch about the 20th century king of the jews lampooning hilter And there is no disrespect in that comment because Mel Brooks loves to make fun of the jews because he knows he can get away with anything that even other jewish comedians couldn't get away with because of the leftards.

    Sorry, I missed your post hidden amongst all the garbage posted here.

    We should focus on the reasons why juveniles increasingly are ending up in detention and deal with those reasons!

    Detention with torture is certainly not the answer and I am deplored that my tax$ are wasted for that.
    All that does makes them hate the world even more and want to get back at society with more crime.
    We are also running out of jails, Alice springs is full, so braindead Dutton style locke'm all up will go no where.

    Rather than torture, maybe we should start to give them some meaning in life and GIVE THEM JOBS even while in detention.
    Even a person with Autism can do work. If anybody actually knew a bit about them, they can be quite creative given the opportunity.
    Yes they may need to be supervised and motivated, well pretty much every worker needs supervision and motivation.
    In other countries, tourist souvenirs are often made by people in jail. I have some little 'islands' in bottles from the Philippines, they are very skilfully detailed and artistic.

    For every pot there is a lid. It is about time we start putting more effort finding the right lids for those 'pots' rather than building more and more jails and paying $330/day for each new lockup of never ending criminals, who won't go away.

    The problem in Alice Springs is Alcohol! The govt removed restrictions on the sale of alcohol citing discrimination. Look what happened. Perhaps the NT should have extended the restrictions to all people. rather than remove them. Some of the rules must have had some effect, Last time I was there I had to produce ID to purchase takeaway grog.

    Your simplistic views of blaming the left again go nowhere.
    The coalition government was ​in power in the months prior to the bans ending but did not commit to continue them.
    Even with alcohol restrictions there were increased home break-ins searching and demanding for alcohol.
    This is a dammed if you do, dammed if you don't situation.

    Some form of regulated alcohol supply might work better. Enough to keep them happy but not enough to make them violent.
    Maybe just a 6 pack of mid range beer, no cheap wine casks or hard liquor.
    One thing they can't do is stuff them all in jail cells for $330 a night because there aren't none left.


    Edit: contrary to what you say ABC must have asked something about this:


    Quote Originally Posted by ABC

    For somebody who claims he doesn't hate the left, you religiously post misinformation about your "radical left.

    Jeeeez...you're full of crap...

    The law was overturned by the NT government....Labour I believe. The feds on both sides said nothing before the FEDERAL election as it was too controversial and they are too gutless.

    You should really read your own posts. You're solution is to try to "dole it out as you see fit" and see if it works. How generous of you. A little experimentation on the abos hey...don't give them wine casks and they'll scream "race based" and no one will challenge them, especially on the left.

    As long as we allow anyone to scream racism all the time, then we are in trouble. And that will increase the more we allow it. Most of these people just can't handle alcohol and thats it. I don't like to feel that way, but it's true. I've met plenty of indigenous people who CAN (my eldest daughter lived with one for a long time), but most just can't.

    Too many white people can't handle it either mind, and that's a fact too.

    Nothing was asked about it on TV breakfast on 9, 10 and the ABC as I said. Of course the ABC covers it in print, 9 probably does too....duh!

    Progressive ideas in this field have accomplished nothing but increased violence. Nearly all those who yell "try this" (like you) don't live there and haven't a clue. I grew up in WA and travelled a lot with my old man. Some of the things I saw make their hostility perfectly understandable, but it just can't be allowed to go unfettered and alocohol fuelled.

    And YES, it's the radical left who tie themselves in ethical knots with their religious like dogma. And more moderates like you who won't call them out allow it.

    Really? Sigh....what a sad response.

    Much of you're own "intelligent" discussion is just wild ranting....IMO anyway. Others may disagree, and that's great. It's what is good about this country as it still stands.

    Inala .. Palaszczuks own electorate FFS...

    Now I have to state I think that the premier is entitled to a holiday. But imagine the outcry on TV if this was a coalition premier...



    in case its paywalled...

    Rampaging youth gangs turn Inala streets into no-go zones

    By Lydia Lynch
    and Michael McKenna
    8:11PM January 23, 2023

    Bus drivers are refusing to stop at night in Annastacia Palaszczuk’s electorate of Inala, with gangs of youths terrorising the council-run route in an escalating run of attacks.

    The Queensland Premier #returned to work on Monday from an overseas holiday to face growing public anger over the state’s youth crime wave in the wake of another alleged murder by a knife-wielding teen.

    As Ms Palaszczuk responded to criticism of her government’s handling of youth crime, it has emerged her local constituents no longer have access to reliable public transport after dark.

    The Rail, Tram and Bus Union have branded the route through her Inala electorate on Brisbane’s southwest outskirts as the most dangerous in the city, and it says it is getting worse.

    “Drivers are afraid to come to work and afraid to drive into Inala,” assistant state secretary Tom Brown said.

    “Since Christmas it has gotten even worse, there have been about 24 incidents; assault, spitting, abuse, threatening drivers, passengers attacking the bus from outside with bottles and rocks.

    “That is what happens when you enter these danger zones.”

    Mr Brown said drivers had begun boycotting routes in Ms Palaszczuk’s electorate after being confronted by gangs of up to 20 youths.

    “The kids are running in packs of 15 to 20. As soon as they get on the bus it is trouble, trouble, trouble,” he said.

    “The driver is under the constant threat of assault, as are the passengers.”

    Mr Brown has called on the state government to mandate and finance full protective screens for drivers travelling into Inala, police to ride on problem routes and government traffic officers to take a tougher approach.

    Senior network officers, employed by the government, have powers to handcuff, detain, search and fine problem passengers but Mr Brown said they had a “softly, softly approach to these gangs”.

    “They are not really engaging with them, just asking them to #behave themselves,” he said.

    Ms Palaszczuk said her government was putting on more security officers and expanding the rollout of bus driver safety barriers around the state.

    “These measures will be targeted in hot spot areas in the Brisbane, Townsville and Gold Coast regions,” she said. “This is about making buses a safer place for customers and bus drivers alike.”

    Brisbane City Council says it is hamstrung on the issue, having #already introduced CCTV, driver barriers, emergency buttons, duress alarms, radio and GPS on every bus and is increasing the number of security guards on these services.

    “Youths, often in large numbers, are being identified in the majority of assaults and incidents of aggressive behaviour towards passengers and drivers on these routes,” a spokesman for Brisbane mayor Adrian Schrinner said.

    “In one case before Christmas, 20 youths were allegedly involved in an assault and robbery of a passenger.

    “What’s needed is patrols by senior network officers who have real power to detain these young criminals and stronger laws that ensure the next bus they’re on is the one to detention.”

    Youth crime has become a hot-button issue in Queensland, given added urgency by the deaths of David Connolly who was stabbed to death on Sunday in the up-market suburb of Wilston, and Brisbane woman Emma Lovell, #allegedly killed by knife-wielding teens in a Boxing Day home #invasion.

    The 17-year-old boy charged with Mr Connolly’s murder had his matter mentioned briefly in court on Monday and bail was not sought.

    The Australian understands the boy has an “extensive” criminal history.

    Speaking on Monday after the first cabinet meeting of the year, Ms Palaszczuk said it was “unbelievable these things are happening” and called for more police patrols.

    “People have the right to feel safe in their streets and in their neighbourhoods,” she said.

    “It is a very complex issue, I think everyone realises that.”

    Ms Palaszczuk stopped short of declaring a youth crime crisis, but acknowledged “there are a number of young people out there causing considerable harm”.

    “I believe we need to throw everything at this, we absolutely do,” she said.

    ‘Some of these children come from very complex backgrounds.

    “I would like to see these young people get jobs, I would like to see them into work.”

    New youth justice reforms, announced days after Ms Lovell’s death last month, will be introduced to state parliament when it returns in late February.

    Under the second suite of youth crime reforms in as many years, penalties will increase for #offenders who boast about crimes on social media.

    The maximum sentence for stealing a car will also increase from seven to 10 years and a harsher penalty of 14 years’ jail will be introduced for offences committed at night.

    Ms Palaszczuk flagged the #reforms may bypass usual committee process – where public feedback is sought – if the opposition agreed to urgently pass laws.

    She said since December police had charged 818 children with 2052 offences.
    The fact that there's a highway to hell and a stairway to heaven says a lot about the anticipated traffic flow.

    What about also charging the parents of these, so called, youths. Also allow mum and dad, and the school system the ability to give a miscreant a good "clip around the ear hole" if they misbehave.
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    Yes both my wife and I came up with this idea too when we discussed youth crime in the past

    These kids have been obviously neglected by their parents. Some of these kids are only 13 y/o.
    Parents are there to set boundaries, teach and occupy their kids, not let them roam around streets.
