Indiscipline on full show

Dear Editor,

How did we get to this stage where a beach party could cause such major disruption to a vital economic service such as air transportation?

Those responsible for the recent 'Sandz' beach party must feel a sense of shame.

Poor planning, indiscipline, selfishness, and the lack of authority enforcing law and order were all on full show. How did the organisers receive a permit to put on this event? On what basis do the authorities grant these permits, and is noise, traffic and crowd control ever factored in?

I've heard that there were flight delays, pilots and flight crews couldn't get to airport on time, passengers were either late getting to airport, stranded, or many ended up missing flights.

Have we got so undisciplined, selfish and uncaring? Has our society deteriorated to the extent that lawlessness rules?

Where were those responsible for enforcing law and order and public safety, even when they saw the problem escalating into a major bottleneck along a critical thoroughfare?
