It was sad that three people died in a road traffic accident in Alice Springs. But to treat the tragedy as a ‘death in custody’ incident when there was no pursuit after the driver chose to ignore a pull over request instead speeding off then crashing, is totally ridiculous.
Watching Australia bat against NZ on the first day and into the early part of the second was a form of spectator torture.
Hundreds and hundreds of people in Alice Springs have signed and are signing a petition asking for a youth curfew. Similar curfews have been periodically advocated for the past 30 years. This one won’t get up either as it will be seen as an infringement on the nocturnal rights of young people.
