We’d like to welcome you to INQ, Crikey’s ambitious new inquiry journalism initiative. Starting June 24, INQ investigative reporting — lifting the rocks, connecting the dots, following the money trail and exposing misuse of power — will appear regularly in Crikey.
We look forward to sharing this exciting new phase with you.

We don't talk much about the role of fully-armed police much these days - but maybe it is time to have a closer look at whether the presence of deadly weapons is necessary at community events where there is no - or little - risk of violent conduct or any threat to life.
Today the good folks over at the ABC radio station JJJ gave us a little concert - for free. Five bands - the Tjupi Band from Papunya, a few hundred k's north-west of Alice, and some other bands from somewhere else played as well.
