The Comrade’s concern for youth sentenced to detention

By nyssa76 4 February 2006 21

The ABC has this[story on what the Chief Minister has had] to say on the matter [of youth detention].

He’s concerned as to the fact that youths in the ACT are doubly more likely to be sentenced to detention than those in NSW.

A snippet:

“Mr Stanhope says he wants to find out why Canberra appears to be the toughest jurisdiction in Australia.” – after the Clea Rose case, he has to be joking.

The Comrade should be asking why they being sentenced in the first place, as opposed to why the numbers are twice those of NSW.

What sickens me more is that he’s hinting at an inquiry….more taxpayers money wasted.

What’s Your opinion?

Should read “got drunk on school grounds.” I should type and talk on the phone at the same time.
