Sense of safety is gone

Southern Telegraph - - Opinion - Alisha More­ton Safety Bay

Why is it when you read the pa­per, switch on the TV or go on Face­book even, there is al­ways news on vi­o­lence?

Groups beat­ing oth­ers up for no rea­son, and groups on so­los beat­ing them up.

Then you have road rage, school bul­ly­ing and then there’s peo­ple go­ing miss­ing with no rea­son why. What has be­come of this world we live in, where there is vi­o­lence all over the place?

What has hap­pened to the world where peo­ple help oth­ers, rather than beat them up and take and leave; what has hap­pened to a safe so­ci­ety, where you felt safe walk­ing the streets, day or night, where you could drive about and be safe in your car, whether it be sit­ting at the lights or at the beach, or on the freeway.

What is this Gov­ern­ment go­ing to do to bring the safety back into this world, like it once was?

I, and I’m sure many oth­ers, would feel that this world, coun­try and states should be how they used to be many moons ago. We need to feel safe in our homes and out on the street and in our cars.

This is not a good world to bring up kids, as with the lack of dis­ci­pline, a lot of kids to­day are feral; this is where a lot of prob­lems lie.

Bring back safety and the feel­ing of be­ing safe.

I do but I don't think you see it — it’s a silent epi­demic. We’re too soft here. Stu­dents from Year 8 need to be ed­u­cated on the dan­gers ... and I also think that peo­ple sweep it un­der the rug when it needs to ex­posed. Sang Mauger, Rock­ing­ham
