Keeping the peace

Early this morning there was a pretty full-on incident in the laneway, where two people were fighting and we had to call the police because there wasn't a lot we could do. When the police arrived we weren't too happy with how the police responded either. We hadn't had much interaction with the police for a while, so we've decided to go back over this little booklet from Victoria Legal Aid, which is about what rights people have when dealing with police in Victoria:

When we were debriefing the incident today, Ray mentioned that last year Ali used to go and meditate in the laneway after bad stuff happened there. So I went and lit a candle in the spot where the fight happened, and prayed there for a while.
