And most kids wouldn't know what they were looking at in an Adult book
store. Just coloured toys.
Oh you mean Teenagers who are left to their own devices from the age of
Ten, have no respect for their teachers, even calling teachers sluts and
fagots - really now and their parents are concerned they might find some
porn! Maybe they need the porn to realise that teachers and other people
aren't sluts and fagots?
I also highly doubt if the NSW Police can provide any tips for safety given
their track record the last five years. Not only can't they take a theft
complaint without first investigating with criminal suspect the owner of
the asset, but they can't respond to house break in's any more, they are
considered NON LIFE THREATENING.
I guess Speed cameras hidden behind bushes are more important than actually
educating people too. Why are most of our Penalty based government
agencies (Police, DoCS, Tax etc) always INTERVENTION based, rather than
PREVENTION based. I think this alleged "porn" issue is all pie in the sky
and will be until the Government changes it's tact and listens to the
people with clue not the people who haven't even had experience.
BTW, 38 SPAM messages for 8 March 2002. Looking forward to today.
