Crime and punishment is treated no different to anything else today, its pure economics.
Send them to jail - cost Gov on average $110000/prisoner/year. Increase the incarceration rate and then they have to build more prisons, costing billions more. (Crims come out with a degree in law and more learned in crime)
Dont put them in jail - Crim gets fined. Instead of costing money they contribute to Gov finances. (Crims have promised not to do it again)

Yep, your right - but after their 20th (like the people from the gangs that dont exist in melbourne) "community bullShit order" - surely something should be done... ??? the fines are obviously not working.

On the building more prisons - with an exploding population its kindergarten maths to realise that we need more of them to house more crims. Just a shame Gov Co cant see that...

This sounds like a bit I was watching last night on NITV.

~$some order of magnitude greater than $500k spent on monitoring and surveillance of indigenous families for child protection and welfare concerns
$500k spent on actually preventing it (ie improving living conditions etc)

so much for prevention is better than cure...

I'm all for mining and the money it generates but heads should roll for this.

The only time they give a rats arse is after they get bad publicity. No different to any other corporation.

Heads can't roll. All approved long ago, whether you agree with it or not.

But I wouold have loved to have been 20 secs later, and caught the Police Car who got T Boned at the Northern end of M1, when he pulled out into on comming traffic. Happened behind me while I was stopped at the roundabout, and only saw it in the rear vision mirror. No one hurt thankfully though.
4.2L TD Toyota Troopy, (Clarke's Country Camper Trailer, softfloor.) sold it and bought a Avan Ray small poptop caravan. I miss being able to acces the little tracks off into the scrub.
