Abstract

Case study into the reasons why local residents in Conville, an outer-western suburb of Townsville, formed vigilante groups in order to combat crime which they perceived emanated from Indigenous juveniles - the influence of questionable local folk knowledge which saw Aborigines as the cause of social disorder - the construction of Indigenous people as a 'problem'.
