Cur­few needed

NT News - - OPINION -

IS it time for a cur­few for chil­dren in the North­ern Ter­ri­tory?

Is it time for par­ents/guardians to be re­quired to re­port to the po­lice if their chil­dren breach the cur­few?

Is it time for par­ents/guardians of child crim­i­nals to be re­quired to pro­vide resti­tu­tion for dam­ages their chil­dren do?

I’m in favour of bring­ing back the cat, but I think that would not be ac­cept­able to the UN pan­sies!

These ideas or sim­i­lar might help to bring jus­tice into the le­gal equa­tion.

Noth­ing else ap­pears to be work­ing.

Our car was at­tacked seven times in the last three years, and the po­lice ap­pear to be no nearer to catch­ing the cul­prits or en­sur­ing resti­tu­tion.

To make it worse, we are pen­sion­ers, so not re­ally im­pressed with the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion.
