On the evening of March 19, 2023, a violent altercation took place at a BWS store located just around the corner from Moil, a suburb in Darwin. The incident resulted in a stabbing – perpetrated by a 19 year old Aboriginal man named Keith Kerinaiua – who was born with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.
Keith Kerinaiua, stabbed 20 year old Declan Laverty to death, at the Darwin bottle shop when the store worker refused to serve him alcohol.
This horrifying death, has once again highlighted the issue of crime and violence in Moil, which has become one of the most dangerous suburbs in Darwin. The area, which was once a quiet, family-friendly neighborhood, has experienced a rapid decline in recent years, with an increase in crime rates and social problems.
The reasons for Moil’s decline into a dangerous suburb are complex and multifaceted. One of the main factors is the high level of public housing in the area and the other is the common practice of groups of Aboriginal’s from remote communites that have banned the sale of alcohol, travelling to Darwin in order to obtain alcohol, while living homeless on the streets.
The mixture of a small suburb population size but with a high percentage of unemployed Aboriginal’s living in the area, has created the perfect recipe for social dysfunction.
The stabbing at the BWS store is just the latest incident in a long line of criminal activities that have plagued Moil in recent years. The local authorities and community leaders must come together to find solutions to the underlying problems that are causing the area’s decline. This may involve increased funding for community programs and resources, as well as addressing the root causes of poverty, unemployment, and social inequality.
Living near a shopping center, service station, grocery store, or parks is usually seen as a positive thing in most cities as it provides easy access to essential amenities and services. However, in the case of Moil, it means exposure to crime and violence from drunken Aboriginal itinerants.
Moil, has experienced a significant increase in the number of Aboriginal itinerants in recent years. Many Aboriginal itinerants in Moil are alcoholics and substance abusers, which often leads to criminal behavior and violence.
The presence of Aboriginal itinerants in Moil has created safety risks for local residents, especially those who live near shopping centers, service stations, grocery stores, and parks. These areas are often frequented by Aboriginal itinerants, who use them as a gathering place to consume alcohol and harrass people for money, and as a result, the residents of Moil have become constant victims of criminal activity and violence.
It is not uncommon to see drunken Aboriginal itinerants shouting and fighting in public spaces, at all hours – day and night, intimidating passersby and causing disturbances. This kind of behavior has left many residents feeling unsafe and fearful, especially at night.
Living near shopping centers, service stations, grocery stores, and parks is usually a positive thing in most cities, but in Moil, it means exposure to crime and violence from drunken Aboriginal itinerants. The never ending increase of itinerants in Moil has created severe safety risks for local residents, who often feel unsafe and fearful.
Addressing the problem requires a comprehensive approach that includes the provision of adequate support services for itinerants, community education programs, and measures aimed at reducing alcohol-related harm. The situation in Moil is unlikely to change unless the government acknowledges the problem and takes concrete steps to remove drunken Aboriginal itinerants from local communities and block them access to Darwin residential suburbs.
However, even with the provision of adequate resources, there will still be Aboriginal itinerants who refuse to seek help or engage in criminal behavior. In such cases, the government needs to take decisive action to remove them from local communities and prevent them from returning.
One potential solution is to create dedicated facilities outside of Darwin where Aboriginal itinerants can receive support and access to resources. These facilities could be staffed by medical professionals, addiction counselors, and social workers, who can help itinerants overcome their issues and reintegrate into society.
In addition, the government needs to implement stricter measures to prevent Aboriginal itinerants from returning to Darwin. This could include increasing police presence at major entry points and setting up checkpoints to screen individuals for alcohol and drugs.
The government could also consider implementing a registration system for Aboriginal itinerants, which would require them to provide identification and contact information. This would enable the government to keep track of Aboriginal itinerants and prevent them from returning to Darwin if they engage in criminal behavior.
Another potential solution is to increase penalties for criminal behavior committed by Aboriginal itinerants. This could include mandatory minimum sentences for violent crimes and increased fines for alcohol-related offenses.
Ultimately, addressing the issue of Aboriginal itinerants in Moil requires a multifaceted approach that addresses the root causes of alcohol addiction and homelessness while also taking decisive action to remove Aboriginal itinerants who engage in criminal behavior and block them from ever returning to the area.
The government must acknowledge the problem publicly and invest the necessary resources to address it, and work towards solving this issue once and for all… Enough Is Enough.
