THIS week on The West­ern

Star Face­book page, we shared an ar­ti­cle about eight of­fend­ers caught by po­lice af­ter break­ing in to the lo­cal pool for a 3am dip.

Here’s what our read­ers had to say.

Dawn Mel­lon: Not the first time, won’t be the last. Let Aussies stay Aussies.

Carol McKenna: I love my VB and noth­ing wrong with a dip at 3am. Cops got no sense of hu­mour any­more

Re­becca Rolfe: Don’t mean to rain on your pa­rade but we had to sec­tion off an area due to smashed glass, we had tod­dlers that were meant to have lessons in that area, we had pro­ce­dures to en­sure the safety of all pa­trons and we ran be­hind sched­ule for pay­ing par­ents all be­cause they wanted to break into a pool and swim while drink­ing with no lights and a strong pos­si­bil­ity of risk of an ac­ci­dent and pos­si­ble drown­ing. It was not fun com­ing in early to get jobs done to then be clean­ing up barely le­gal and un­der age drinkers that have no re­spect for any­thing or any­one. Maybe next time they can go and do it in their own pools that they ap­par­ently have.

Jack Hog­a­rth: Why is it mad­ness? Plenty of $$ for landown­ers do­ing it tough and need coin. If they play their cards right!!

Mick Scott: All us­ing their mo­bile phones and us­ing their cars made form petroleum prod­ucts, eat­ing fast food cooked from nat­u­ral gas.

Spin Hamp­son: What the hell are we go­ing to do with all this in­com­ing wealth at this point in time, re­ally.

FI­NALLY, our com­mu­nity re­joiced in the news that two crim­i­nals, re­spon­si­ble for a space of more than 30 bur­glary of­fences, had been stopped in Roma.
