A catch 22 in Tennant Creek!

Apparently a 2 year old girl has been raped in Tennant Creek and the particular ethnic group is screaming for the police to put a stop to all the crime and drunkenness! The news report also mentioned that close to 50% of the rapes are committed on underage girls.

However I believe that the police in Northern Territory are caught in a bit of a bind… call it a catch-22 of sorts! These people have been constantly screaming that there’s too many of them in jail – should the police throw everybody else in jail also – nobody would be very happy!?

This catch 22 is very similar to the question of child neglect… should the authorities take such children away and create another supposed “so-called” ‘stolen generation’… I don’t envy the position of the NT authorities!
