Keep racist remarks off Facebook site, police officer appeals

 

The Facebook site Assist your local Alice Springs Police is "not about presenting racist remarks. It is about reducing the harm associated with crime and anti-social behaviour".
This appeal comes from Police Senior Sergeant Michael Potts (picture from Facebook) who earlier this week was listed on the site as its administrator.
Sgt Potts said in a posting yesterday, apparently referring to the Alice Springs News Online report, posted on Tuesday: "Due to a recent news article and some posts / comments that have been written I wish to clear up some issues.
"Firstly I am not an Administrator for this site although I have asked to be put back as one to enable me to make this post.
"The Administration of this group is now in the hands of the community and has been this way for about a week.
"It is clear that some people are using this forum for their own agenda and not for the aims that the group was developed for."  ERWIN CHLANDA reports.
