Something needs to be done to protect indigenous women and children who are far more likely to be either physically or sexually abused.Once a person is in custody, the rates are per capita negligibly different no matter what race you are (a white person is just as likely to die as an aboriginal person on a per capita basis). There is however an over representation of aboriginal's in Australian jails in the first place. Not sure what you do about that (I'm no policy expert), it's a case of chicken and the egg at this point. Something has to be done though. The removal of the public drunkenness laws is a good start.
