Shadow minister for Central Australia Matt Conlan said tough alcohol laws had not reduced crime throughout the past few months. Alice Springs has been hit by the largest crime spree in recent history, he said. On Saturday The Australian reported that secret alcohol resale outlets have been operating in Alice Springs suburbs. What the Chief Minister wont admit is that if people want grog, they will get it, Mr Conlan said. Instead of having the intended effect of reducing crime, Labors policies have actually laid the foundations for more crime in the form of a bootleg alcohol industry. Central Australia Minister Karl Hampton has called on the senior Aboriginal people of Alice Springs to help combat anti-social behaviour and criminal activity. There are many issues confronting us in Alice Springs, he said. Mr Conlan said the Territory Government was punishing all Alice Springs residents through its alcohol restrictions instead of targeting problem drunks. While law-abiding citizens cant buy takeaway alcohol after 9pm, theres a black market servicing the thugs who have taken control of the streets after dark, he said. But Mr Hampton said the Government had committed significant resources to crime problems in the Central Australian town. Persons who have knowledge of people selling al cohol without a licence should report them to the police immediately they are breaking the law, he said. Riders pull out the tricks for flood victims BMX for Floods organisers Paul Bennett (Spokes NT) and Dave Orme at the Rapid Creek Skate Park Picture: MICHAEL FRANCHI TERRITORIAN free-stylers took to the pavement yesterday for Queenslands flood victims. BMX for Floods is a nationwide initiative with Dar wins instalment of the fundraiser being held at the Rapid Creek Skatepark. NT organiser Dave Orme said about 150 people turned out to support the cause dur ing the course of the day. Everyone made a donation. I made sure of it, he said. More than 50 riders, including Angus Samson who has featured in national BMX publication Focal Point BMX took part in the exhibition. Mr Orme said the fundraising went well and he was certain organisers smashed their target of $2000. We sold a lot of raffle tickets and sausages, he said. Paul Flay, 20, picked up a set of new pedals and a hat when he took out the Best Trick competition with an awesome backflip. All money raised at the event went directly to the Queensland Premiers Flood Appeal.
