CONTROVERSIAL BILL LEAK CARTOON ACCURATE

Western Australia’s Police Commissioner Karl O’Callaghan on the Bill Leak cartoon that prompted an Australian Human Rights Commission investigation:

“From my perspective, Bill Leak’s cartoon is actually an accurate reflection of what our officers see on a day-to-day basis, when they’re dealing particularly with kids from Aboriginal communities or Aboriginal families who are in trouble,” he said.

“It happens repeatedly, and I think what Bill Leak was doing was trying to indicate a broader problem for the community to sort out.”

There’s the problem of dysfunction within Aboriginal communities but also the Australian Human Rights Commission problem. Both require urgent attention.

  1. Throwing money in a river will build neither a dam nor a bridge. Why would anyone think that doing the same to,(not for), Aboriginals would be any different ?
