    Mornington Islanders want tribal justice over alleged gang rape of girl, 6

    April 25, 2014


    OUTRAGED Mornington Islanders want tribal justice in the alleged gang rape of a six-year-old girl in the aboriginal Gulf community.

    Tribal elders condemned the “sickening act” after The Courier-Mail revealed four child suspects in the alleged sex assault had been quietly flown off the island amid fears of violent retribution.

    Mayor Bradley Wilson yesterday ordered a media gag with tensions running high as the details about the alleged attack became public.

    Civic leaders, the local indigenous justice group and police are urging elders against inflaming tribal tensions among the 1200-strong population

    Flying them off the island never to be seen again doesn't seem like a solution. Presumably they'll be hardened up in a boys facility and eventually end up as anonymous predators in a big city having never been named.

    Let the community seek tribal justice!! I am all for that!!

    Bet there would be no more victims.

    From the article above:

    The highly ritualised form of tribal justice, known in the Wellesley Islands as “Junkuri”, has not been properly practised since the late 70s, the elder said. In the Gulf region, serious offenders were dealt with harshly including banishment, spearing and castration.

    “I know that little girl, knowing her makes me even more upset,” the elder said.

    From the article above:
    Mornington Island - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In 2003 the Government of Queensland implemented an Alcohol Management Plan to 19 indigenous communities in Queensland where alcohol abuse was rampant.[5] The alcohol bans are aimed at alleviating high levels of domestic violence, child abuse and child neglect. The plan restricts tavern opening hours, limits sales to only light and mid-strength beers, bans takeaway alcohol sales and home brewing.[6] The Mornington Island community has been described as the toughest in Queensland when it comes to resisting alcohol bans.[5]

    My heart is breaking.

    That poor, sweet girl
    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    I can understand they would want to diffuse potentially violent situations before they happen but the bolded part of your statement is what I thought right away too.

    What is going on with this world. Children that grow up abusing other kids because they are bored and are not raised properly.

    This week I have read about 5 cases of rape of a child younger than 10.

    One child was 2 and her mum and stepdad raped and video taped it. How in the word can you rape a baby? I just do not get that at all.

    How can you let your baby be raped? I want more of those places they set up in Florida. Lock them and throw away the key.

    I am SO DISGUSTED at the way humanity takes advantage of the most vulnerable people in society.

    This is so disgusting. And I am really curious if these boys had access to a computer. It is frightening how easy it is for kids to watch porn online these days. I am worried that it is adding to the problems like the tragic one in this case.

    It absolutely is, IMO. Need to get the studies to have on hand. I'm not against porn unilaterally. But the claim being that porn lessens sexual assault because it's an outlet for urges? Get real. It just leads to desensitization and escalation—pair that with the typical teenage hormones and social frustrations and lack of impulse control...
