HARVEY DICKSON RODEO 2019

The 2019 Harvey Dickson Rodeo hosted by Double Barrel Entertainment was held this year on Friday 25 and Saturday 26th October and Ngaarda Media was there through the eyes of Ngaarda Media's Ryan Drechsler.

Unfortunately one of the main men and sponsors Brian Tucker from the Karlayura Group was unable to attend due to a death in the family.
Ngaarda Media sends sincere condolences to Brian and his family.

Harvey Dickson’s Country Music Centre is located approximately 5kms out of Boyup Brook and draws thousands of not only rodeo enthusiasts but country music followers across the nation.

The first day saw the likes of Weston Withers and Sam Spreadborough a descendant of the Kalkadoon tribe hold a Rodeo school to share some of the skills that helped make them top riders locally and internationally.

Ryan Drechsler was ready to take on one of the bigger bulls until he saw the brave ride from the local policeman in which case he decided to focus on getting great footage for those not able to attend.

Although Ryan is often willing to go above and beyong to get you the latest we at Ngaarda agreed that in this case it was a wise decision for the sake of the viewers.

“The arrest of Christian Pastor in Newman for suspicion of theft of sunglasses after de-escalating incident .

Pastor John Wilmot of the Martu Farm in Newman was arrested yesterday on suspicion of stealing sunglasses.

Mr Wilmot confirmed it was over an incident that happened on Friday. He was at the Newman chemist when a group of men who are Aboriginal, known to him
were involved in a police incident.

In an effort to de-escalate the number of people present he assisted some to move on. During that time, he noticed sunglasses laying on the ground. Not wanting them to get broken John states he picked them up and placed them on a nearby table.

"One man was emotional so I approached to talk to them all and said 'hey, just be careful, perhaps we are all better off moving on. I went back in to the shops, got my things and then came out and then there was this massive raucous going on with police trying to arrest someone,” Mr Wilmot said.

"Thankfully the other guys did disperse but a couple didn't. One guy was really angry. We have people with relatives in Carnarvon and Yuendumu here so tensions are high.

"I walked up to one of the gentleman and put my arm around him. He was yelling out certain things in frustration like 'you're not going to shoot him are you'. I gently suggested he keep himself away from this.“

"I noticed a pair of sunglasses on the ground, I just picked them up and put them on the table. The gentleman that was sitting there was angry and broke those sunglasses. At that stage I was concerned about two young children so close to all of this. To remove the boys from this, I took the boys into Dome for a slushi.

“Two days later, at my home, I was arrested on the suspicion of stealing sunglasses.”

Mr Wilmot said he deescalated the situation and much more people could have been arrested if he hadn't.

'They were in front of my house, three police at 2 o clock on a sunny Sunday afternoon. They put me in the back of the van stating I had aggressive demeanour. We have video footage. I'm hardly aggressive. Being put at the back was a real demoralising experience. It actually felt very punitive. "

"We've been posting a lot on 'deaths in custody'. We posted on minors not being strip-searched without responsible adults and we've copped so much anger from the community. I've been slandered across FB. .. my character, who I am, questions about me being a Pastor and simply because we have a voice."

Mr Wilmot said he has a record of assalt against police that happened a long time ago.

"It's all spent convictions and I just felt that they would of known that record I just felt they put me in a situation that would make me vulnerable. If I was still that person that did not have the maturity and the experience and sense, I might have been tempted to fight my way out of it because I was taken by surprise."

“I am glad the cctv footage was clear and validated my version of what happened. I am perplexed at how this was handled and do hold concerns, especially in light of the Carnarvon and Yuendumu situations.

"What if I wasn't white, what if I wasn't a really known Pastor, humiliated in front of my family, put in the back of a car with armed officers. What if English was not my preferred language? How easy could this escalate?

John was released without charge about four hours later.

An inspector from the Pilbara police visited the Wilmot’s home this morning. Angela Wilmot said that he apologised.

"We really appreciated the visit. There was an apology acknowledging things could have been handled better. We, like the police, are committed to continuing what has been a great relationship with the police," she said.

Newman Police have declined to comment. “

"YOU'RE WELCOME BUT BEHAVE": YAMATJI LEADER WANTS PEACE IN GERALDTON

Anti-social behaviour in Geraldton is becoming a concern for locals and
Elder Coral Brockman says visitors from Carnarvon, Meekatharra and Mt Magnet are drawn to Geraldton as a major centre for educational purposes, jobs and shopping.

"They come to Geraldton and there is a need for that and people move around we understand that's normal but, the problem here as we see it is people from other towns who have done the same thing smashing up houses and anti-social behaviour are thrown out of one town and go to the next town."

Yamatji leader, Lou Edwards has had enough of visitors running amock in Geraldton and says 'you are welcome, but behave'.

"I contacted the police to ask what was happening with fights and riots
They were brawling in Karloo . The police formed a barricade around the area and people were complaining saying that the police barricaded in their riot gear ...what else are the police supposed to do when people are fighting to save other people or save themselves ..you know ..if anyone gets hurt."

"A lot of the fighting is coming from out of Geraldton from people coming in so we understand that the regional areas are suffering from not being funded properly for their resources and facilities and stuff and communities are being bulldozed so we understand that they have to come into town but what we would like to see is people being peaceful ..getting along and respecting and taking care of the place we live in. "

Elder Coral Brockman says that word gets around about who the trouble-makers are and says to be respectful when coming into someone elses country.

"We live in Geraldton, we were born there, we know every blackfella and we find out, because you know how blackfella's are, as soon as we meet people we say who's your mob and you make your link-ups, but we know they're not from here because we know about them and heard about what they did in Carnarvon and what they did up there," she said.

"The rules might differ a little bit, try and blend in with the locals because we all got to live there, they can come and go, they are blow-ins ya know, they come and go as they want."

Ms Edwards says that police are working alongside locals to bring 'Boomerang Justice'.

"So that we can enforce laws given the chance black fellah way to sit amongst the circle and explain to themselves why they did that wrong and to get the elders to speak up what their punishment is."

"We've got to be responsible leaders now and teach the people a better way to live so we don't have to have police contact and all those kinda deaths in custody and DCP and all that stuff involved."
