like a pretty tough job. I can see how that would get very stressful. My question was genuine though, if, in the end you felt so bitter and angry I wonder how you were able to remain objective in your role, and am not surprised that you left in the end.
I m not disputing that you witnessed and were involved in some pretty nasty stuff, but it is not the same everywhere Tara, I still dispute your claim that your opinions are the "general consensus" of the Australian population. And also the behaviours you talk about are not isolated to Indigenous people. I have seen some pretty disgusting stuff from non-Indigenous people here in the NT, the difference is that a lot of the physical, sexual, drug/alcohol abuse perpetrated by non-Indigenous people is carried on behind closed doors and not out in the open....along with the welfare rorts.
