A special report on the plight of Sydney's Indigenous youth. The area in question is Redfern and Waterloo, about 5 km from Sydney's CBD.
Altercations between youth and police have been reported as well as incidents of youth rioting and hurling bricks at passing vehicles. Tougher law and order were recommended for the area, however, what was left unexamined was the predicament that most of these children are coming from.
The youth suffer from dysfuntional families where abuse is commonplace, are exposed to drugs, alcohol and violence and often feel safer on the streets than at home.
