Youth justice crisis - (30.11.2016)

The Andrews Government's back down on its decision to place indigenous youths at Barwon prison shows that once again youth offenders are calling the shots and Daniel Andrews caves in. 

Only last week in Parliament, the Premier said he made no apologies for sending violent youth offenders to Barwon.

It took just seven days for Daniel Andrews to buckle and cave in. It sends yet another message to youth gangs that his government is a soft touch on crime. 

There is no rational reason for making a special exception for indigenous youth offenders and it sends the wrong message to the community.

It's hard to know what's worse, the fact that the Government's decision to cave-in was wrong; or that it discriminated against non-indigenous youths

Daniel Andrews has created this youth crisis and has no idea how to fix it.
