Summary
Article comments on 1988/89 work of Wayne Hall, Ernest Hunter and Randolph Spargo, who studied alcohol consumption and the relationship to incarceration amongst Aborigines in the Kimberley region of northwest Australia; Broadhurst dismisses link of alcohol to crime, without considering other factors such as policing, race relations, drinking behaviour, whether Aborigines were mixed or full blooded; authors focussed on need for alternative services in wake of decriminalisation of drunkenness such as the Aboriginal night patrols in cooperation with local police in Broome and Derby, which serve as community self-policing; this will also assist with public safety and reducing Aboriginal incarceration
