Summary
Criticises the mandatory sentencing regime introduced into the Northern Territory by the government as a deterrent to crime; in mandatory sentencing judges cannot exercise discretion in sentencing for a large range of property crimes as the jail terms are set by law; mandatory sentencing is racist because it affects a disproportionate number of Indigenous people; mentions the death in custody of a young Groote Eylandt man and lists ten examples of mandatory sentencing
