LETTER: Attack on film crew – should we defer to criminals?

Sir,- In regard to the attack on the ABC film crew in the Todd River on February 8 there seem to be many in the community who are criticizing both the camera crew and the police.  These criticisms are unwarranted.

Safe spaces

returned to Alice, grateful for its relative safety. Her confidence has
been undermined by a near miss with an intruder and after learning of
the brutal rape of a local woman who had left a party that Estelle would
have gone to had she been here. Pictured: Sunset off
Morocco's Atlantic coastline – beautiful, but hard to appreciate when
you're being hassled by local men with their stereotyped ideas of
western women. Returning to Alice was a relief ... at first.
