  1. This is a win win outcome. These people who's lives have been destroyed by addiction, get a second chance and the support they need to get straight AND it saves tax payer money over sending people to prison which let's be honest, doesn't solve the problem at all.

  2. Just give them a bag of drugs and hope they overdose problems solved

  3. Why are we supporting druggoes while our hard working pensioners are on stervation.

  4. How crazy can one be, Fail again

  5. This is brilliant! It's great to see people doing something smart to help others like this. Well done guys, keep up the good work.

  6. Treat them with dignity and respect A Good Man

  7. Go Carolyn...keep up the great work. Power to you sister xx

  8. Other judges could learn a lot from this man, try a little kindness and look at the big picture... #jailisntalwaystheanswer

  9. he is a good man doing alot of good

  10. I LOVE this because it’s a second chance but not a soft option.

  11. Great work Darren! I’m so glad to see you take your second chance & turn your life around. You would’ve made your mum & sisters so proud!

  12. What a supreme individual. Great work. Someone finally not adhering to the headline brigade

  13. Finally, a Magistrate, with a common sense approach towards addictions!

  14. God bless you Mr Parsons it's great to see a judge who sees & treats people with care & respect. Drug addictions don't discriminate & some wonderful people fall into this sad choice.. it's wonderful to see your program to help others is working & it would be nice to see it be Australia wide ;))

  15. Best judge as seen on today tonight ..with turning lives around and actually making a difference to peoples lives ...shame hes not a governor as well ....

  16. THIS MAGISTRATE IS A BLOODY DISGRACE. DRUG USERS BELONG IN JAIL NOT 2ND CHANCES. LOCK THE SCUM UP.
