Top cop says attack on 79-year-old woman's home is despicable

The alleged actions of two youth who caused significant criminal damage to an elderly woman’s home in Alice Springs have been described as despicable by NT Police Assistant Commissioner Narelle Beer.
A 79-year-old woman was left traumatized after the youths threw rocks at her home and car on Nelson Terrace just before 6am on Saturday.
Assistant Commissioner Beer said she is disgusted by the behaviour of the youths: “At a time when we’re pleading for people to stay safe in their own homes, the conduct of these individuals to traumatise a vulnerable person is a despicable act.”
She to anyone who may have witnessed the incident or was in the area of Nelson Terrace and Blain Street early on Saturday morning to contact police on 131 444.
Investigations into the incident continue.

  1. And then what? Would the culprits (if caught) make retributions in kind or in work?
    I do not think so. It will be another slap on the hands (poor bugger me, I had an very hard upbringing) instead of a very good kick in the backside.
    A juvenile delinquent is a young person, particularly a teenager under the age of eighteen, who breaks a state or Federal law by committing a crime. What could causes them to commit crimes
    1. Broken Family? Yes, but Aborigines have a very large family / kinship.
    2. Lack of Communication? Nearly all the youths have a phone and watch TV.
    3. Lack of Finances? In Australia everyone has welfare if necessary.
    4. Lack of social and moral training? YES.
    Who is responsible for social and moral training? Parents? Schools?
    Children have the right to be safe, to be treated with affection, to be educated, to have medical care and to be protected against cruelty and abuse.
    Parents have the duty to protect their children’s rights until they are old enough to make their own way in the world.
    Family law in Australia defines the responsibilities that parents have in relation to bringing up their children. These include:
    • to protect the child from harm
    • to provide the child with food, clothing and a place to live
    • to financially support the child
    • to provide safety, supervision and control
    • to provide medical care
    • to provide an education.
    Schools, as well as general subjects, must teach children to show respect for others with different points of view, and to communicate effectively, work in teams and develop leadership skills.
    We have laws, we have rights, so what is wrong with our society?

  2. I am Surprised none of the neighbours went to help the lady. Even calling 000 may have got a prompt response.
    What’s happened to society?
