Bad girls, be­hav­ing worse

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

LATE night rev­ellers of the fairer sex are be­hav­ing rather badly, pass­ing out in the streets and fight­ing among them­selves.

There have been sev­eral re­ported in­ci­dents re­cently where young women are so in­tox­i­cated they are caus­ing fights with oth- ers, do not know where they are, as­sault­ing bus driv­ers and even be­ing found passed out in the Coles un­der­ground carpark. Over the last four weeks, Tony Rit­ter from Adrenalin Bus Ser­vice said he has had eight or nine in­ci­dents on his bus in­volv­ing women be­hav- ing badly. ‘‘The peo­ple you would ex­pect to have trou­ble from on the bus have been so well-man­nered and well-be­haved, while the women are just los­ing con­trol,’’ he said. ‘‘It is hor­ri­ble to hear how they are talk­ing to one an­other, call­ing each other names and even one woman hit­ting an­other for speak­ing to her boyfriend on the bus.

‘‘I just re­ally think women need to look af­ter each other more, where are th­ese in­tox­i­cated girls’ friends and why are they be­ing found passed out in ran­dom places?’’
