Anderson: You cannot benefit from murder ... Time does not erase murder

In the current Euahlayi Peoples Republic Rates Case (QLD), all sides agree that contested sovereignty is not capable of being decided by a court.

QLD: Half of all young people leaving state care are homeless or behind bars within a year.

This story paints is a damning picture with some people believed to be calling for the age of when young people leave foster, kinship/family and residential care to be raised from 18 to 21.

We don't want yet another patch-up job decided by bureaucrats and governments who always look for a quick fix to try and hide the gaping faults already built into their system.
