Half shot or full drunk?

Evidence in this week's committal hearing of charges against Liam Jurrah, Christopher Walker and Josiah Fry, painted yet again a picture of Alice Springs town camps awash with alcohol, even though drinking is supposed to be banned there. When the grog wasn't being consumed in the camps, it was being drunk "down the creek", where drinking is also supposed to be banned.

There was no suggestion that this day – March 7, 2012 – was special. It was a Wednesday. Only one witness said it was his pension day.

For one man, drinking started before noon; for most of the others, it began mid-afternoon, after the take-aways opened. KIERAN FINNANE summarises the evidence of each witness in relation to alcohol consumed on the day.
