Loot­ers find some sup­port

Yet an­other slap on the wrist, no won­der there is so much frus­tra­tion in the ranks when this is all they get. What hap­pened to the 5 years jail or so. Posted by: Bar­ney62 Tsv How sad the whole episode was "... dis­tress­ing for them and their fam­i­lies but they both ad­mit it was a gross er­ror". So their lawyers said. What rub­bish! They were op­por­tunis­tic thieves. And what about the cost to the shop own­ers for repairs, police time, court time and so it goes on. No conviction recorded and a com­mu­nity ser­vice or­der – frankly it’s crim­i­nal! Posted by: JayJ I ac­tu­ally think the pun­ish­ment is fine. A slap on the wrist is OK for steal­ing lol­lies, es­pe­cially as it is only their first of­fence. If they do it again, then that is when you come down hard - no more chances. Jail is ex­ces­sive for a bunch of kids smash­ing a win­dow and steal­ing some lol­lies. Posted by: Leah, Qld

At­tack­ing the Nashos

Why do your and my rates go to fund events such as this? If the Nashos want to hold an event they are wel­come, but I don’t want to help fund it. Again Tyrell and his team of losers look to their own agen­das and ex­pect every­body to pay for it. Drop rates and charges, don’t fund unim­por­tant, mi­nor­ity events. Posted by: Just Ice, Tsv Good on you TCC for get­ting be­hind this event, it will no doubt be great for busi­ness and the peo­ple of Townsville will sup­port it like they do with any ma­jor event. Pity some don’t agree. Posted by: Bow of Bris­bane
