Mike Stav, Mullumbimby

Dear police, it’s time we had a chat. The police are made up of some of the most intelligent and talented folks around. I’m sure there are things you feel we just don’t understand. We all know that ‘prevention’ is better than ‘cure’ and ‘punishment’.

Rather than attempt negotiations in the heat of the moment during such a clash, would it not be infinitely better and more civilised to exchange information well before such an event? You never know, you all might have more in common than you think, to stand side by side for the same cause of Truth, Justice and Freedom, for all.
