Peo­ple had things to say about fallen Ea­gles star Ben Cousins be­ing jailed over court breaches last week.

About time. He has been given spe­cial treat­ment for too long, and be­fore the do-good­ers start de­fend­ing him, he is putting in­no­cent lives at risk. If he killed one of your fam­ily while on a ben­der you wouldn’t be ad­vo­cat­ing le­niency.

A few peo­ple say­ing send him to re­hab, re­hab only works if you are totally com­mit­ted to it and chang­ing your life, oth­er­wise it’s a waste of re­sources. I hope he is re­ally ready to sort his life out and com­mit to mak­ing the changes he needs to and sorts his life out.

Once fly­ing high, he def­i­nitely brought us fans pre­mier­ships. What a cry­ing shame.

Four peo­ple caught an iron ore train home af­ter their car was swept away at a flooded river cross­ing on the Turner River af­ter rains in Hed­land, be­cause this is the Pil­bara and that is what hap­pens here.

Car floats away, catch the train home, po­lice lo­cate car ... good bush yarn.

How many warn­ings have to be given be­fore peo­ple will lis­ten?

A re­port came out late last month re­veal­ing WA had the high­est rate of metham­phetamine use in Aus­tralia.

The lu­di­crous drug test­ing re­gard­ing mar­i­juana led 1000s of work­ers to hit the pipe be­cause it was out of their sys­tem within two days. This re­sulted in many peo­ple be­com­ing ad­dicted. So you can thank the ridicu­lous drug test­ing rules.

Re­port meth deal­ers to po­lice. Rid these scum from our com­mu­ni­ties. They are quite sim­ply fam­ily de­stroy­ers and mur­der­ers.

I won­der if this sur­vey takes into ac­count the high num­ber of FIFO and if they are from in­ter­state?
