Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Why are we so blasé about violent pornography?

Why is it a turn on to hurt us? Recent intersectional studies have shown that online misogyny and violent pornography are contributors to a sharp rise in domestic violence. In NSW alone, police attend 500 incidents every day. If there were 500 threats or incidents at banks, or to the government, we would be in a state of emergency. Instead we stop, shake our heads, we listen to good men in government speak empty words, make a few promises, and move on. If you’ve ever lived through violence, it’s pretty well what your abuser does after hitting you.

Managing aquifers to deal with groundwater loss

Australians have worried about running out of water since before colonisation. Back then, coastal Aboriginal people turned to rivers, streams and lakes for drinking water; those inland, perhaps a mound spring or well-charged rock hole.

A man faced court yesterday charged over an alleged home invasion in Kingscliff that left one man dead and another seriously injured.

Emergency services responded to a concern for welfare at a home on Oxford Street, Kingscliff, just after 8pm on Tuesday (9 April 2024).

Officers from Tweed/Byron Police District attended and found a 29-year-old man with a stab wound. He was treated by NSW Ambulance paramedics; however, died at the scene.

The occupant of the home, a 66-year-old man, was also found suffering significant arm injuries. He was airlifted to Gold Coast University Hospital where he underwent surgery and remains in a stable condition.

A crime scene was established at the home and detectives commenced an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the incident under Strike Force Chams.

Following inquiries, a 26-year-old man was arrested at a Kingscliff home about 5.30pm last night (Wednesday 10 April 2024).

He was taken to Tweed Heads Police Station where he was charged with special aggravated break and enter and commit serious indictable offence.

Police will allege in court that the man forced entry to the home and assaulted the occupant before fleeing.

The man was refused bail to appear at Tweed Heads Local Court on Thursday, 10 April.

As investigations under Strike Force Chams continue, anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
