Fair use rationale for Image:Operation Sorbet 1.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Operation Sorbet 1.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Highwayman[edit]

The highwayman is typically British whereas the American terms for similar activity were more specific, bank robbers, train robbers, outlaws. "Ugly-American" is a more modern term so I removed it. Julia Rossi 22:50, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

Image copyright problem with Image:BeaumontChildren.jpg[edit]

The image Image:BeaumontChildren.jpg is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check

  • That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
  • That this article is linked to from the image description page.

The following images also have this problem:

Unreferenced claims about living people[edit]

The article is currently lacking any citations at all, and some of the individuals named are redlinks (about seven right now), so the citations can't be in those articles. Andjam (talk) 11:44, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

Purpose and current status of this article[edit]

Uhhh... what is the purpose of this article? I found it looking for an overview of how crime is managed and dealt with in Australia (more specifically, looking for the common sentence for murder) but instead i found a horrible wiki page that just has a serious identity crisis.

I would be more than willing to fix it up, but the page is horribly daunting and i dont know where to start. What would be removed and what should be kept? 124.149.113.63 (talk) 09:06, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

FYI one current sub headline is "Fisk smager godt" - it means Fish taste good in Danish... Prob some kind of minor sab, but I couldnt find the original text. JanneW (talk) 08:33, 17 October 2013 (UTC)

First Sentence is Factually Incorrect[edit]

I was doing some research and was astounded to find that the lede sentence of this Wikipedia article is factually incorrect - "Australia has a much lower violent crime rate than some other developed nations, such as the United States and the United Kingdom." The source cited is regarding "homicides" but this article is about crime in general. I am going to correct once I find the correct source. Regardless, we probably should not start the lede on this with a comparative to the US or UK. Feel free to comment.-Justanonymous (talk) 19:36, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

There, I changed it a bit so at least the article doesn't start off with a blantant lie.-Justanonymous (talk) 20:28, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Bizarre Header Names[edit]

What's with the strange header names on this page? Or is this some sort of odd language I'm not acquainted with?? Steroid Maximus (talk) 13:07, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Also, perhaps a mention of the Eureka Rebellion is surely worth putting in here somewhere? Steroid Maximus (talk) 13:11, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
