From: S.M. Comment: Re: Fight night.Ban the brawlers from Flinders St East.Have their photos posted in the foyers of clubs and pubs so they can be recognised and removed.If they can’t handle the grog, ban them from drinking as well. From: Thelma Joyce Comment: The article on culling of brumbies is enlightening and disturbing.I understand that the RSPCA has condemned this practice.The humane option would serve the same purpose, and should be adopted. From: Withheld Comment: I read with interest the issues facing the child safety workers and I feel very bad for them, and I know just how they feel. The staff at probation and parole (formerly community corrections) are in the same boat, ie.lack of staff, lack of resources, backlog of work, scapegoats.The only difference is that probation and parole officers are allocated their caseloads not on where they sit, but on how well they get along with management regardless of skills, knowledge or capability. There are a lot of staff at probation and parole who are extremely unhappy as well. Given the number of staff who are in higher positions without any skills, training or experience, it is only a matter of time before something very dangerous happens and then the government/management may do something about it.
