"Australia's leader has announced plans to ban pornography and alcohol for Aborigines in some areas, and to tighten control over their welfare benefits to fight what he called a child sex abuse crisis among them.

Prime Minister John Howard was responding to an officially commissioned report last week saying child abuse was rampant in indigenous communities in the Northern Territory, fueled by alcohol abuse, unemployment, poverty and other factors causing a breakdown in civil society...."

I don't think welfare money that anybody receives should be spent on booze or porn... but, honestly, I don't think I've ever read any link that associates these things with child sex abuse. Pedophilia is a totally different thing than being an alcoholic or even a heavy porn consumer (unless it's child porn).
