Darwin Police look freaky

Judging by the footage I saw on tv this morning, they dress like soliders and act like Nazis.

I can't disagree with any particular point there.

Darwin is a different city though - there are pockets of suburban crazy right next to investment property rich whities everywhere (where I live), and situations that will go nuts without warning, and sadly more itinerant (those booth boys canna spell to save their life) population and public drunkeness than any other city. Yes I know how broad a statement that is, I'm still going to stand by it. with %33 percent of the population the not disinfranchised in australia (he really can't spell can he?)the job would be pretty scarey, and would kill any "touchy feely new age cop" inside you pretty quick.

Don't get me wrong - they are mostly meat heads though - we get the people who can't get in to the poice force in other states.

...but I feel for them anyway.

Metro cops in brisbane don't get asked to fly in to Wadeye to help with riots...of people who have made shovel nosed spears.
