More than twenty thousand Australians  have  signed  a petition calling for  a royal commission into what is being called  "the greatest crisis the nation has ever faced" 

Veteran Western Australian human rights campaigner and suicide prevention researcher Gerry Georgatos  says around 5.2 per cent of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander deaths are officially registered as suicides  but  the actual figure could be closer to 10 per cent.

Police are appealing to the Alice springs  community to inform them of incidents of anti social behaviour ... particularly rock throwing ...rather then  voicing their concern and frustrations  on social  media.
