Individuals who as children were removed from their biological families are the nation’s highest risk group to suicide. They are four times at risk than the nation’s highest population risk group to suicide; the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population of the Kimberley which is the world’s second highest population risk group to suicide – behind Greenland’s Inuit peoples.
Despite all the good work done by many in saving lives, the suicide toll, particularly for the most elevated risk groups, is on the increase. The most elevated risk groups for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders are individuals removed as children from their families, former inmates, the homeless and families evicted from public rental housing. When children are removed from their families because of alleged exposure to violence, dysfunction and other perceived aberrant behaviour they are not provided adequate healing and trauma informed counselling and restorative therapies.
The removal of a child from his or her family is a significant psychosocial hit, going straight to the validity of the psychosocial self and the id and simply it hurts, for many unbearably. Where there is no prospect of reunification with the parent(s) and siblings the trauma can degenerate to a constancy of traumas. One’s familial identity is made a liability and there is a disconnection with who they are and this impacts who they will be. Doubly so for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who daily have to deal with potential racism and the negative public spectacles and ceaseless conversations that diminish their historical and traditional heritage. When your identity is manifest as a liability it rips into your self-worth.
Police, child protection, family court's, criminal courts, the legal system, our government ... They all protect predators and perpetrators. Hundreds of thousands of stories are emerging Australia wide and yet the general public still don't get it!! No one is exempt, unless you have money to buy your way out!!!
Innocent people are played every single day!! False reports are made, evidence hidden, and when evidence is available it is kept under lock and key!!! Innocent people being forced to plead guilty to crimes they never committed, their children taken under false pretense, and abused in a system that proclaims to provide a better life!! A better life for who?? The money making fraudsters who pocket billions of Australian tax dollars per year?? Or our children??
This is currently what our children endure !! Tell me if this is the better life you all envisioned?? Full of beatings, rape, murder ?? Homelessness, hunger, with no job prospects, little education, no love or true support ?? And ten times the chance of dying ...
*** ADOPTION CHILDREN ... WHERE DO THEY REALLY COME FROM? FIRSTLY, DoCS aren't damned if they do or damned if they don't remove children. They just prefer to take #kids from #parents who are easy targets - usually the ones who would rely on state funded #LegalAid to TRY and keep their kids.
They routinely choose to ignore kids who are being abused - even placing kids with #paedophiles - in order to perpetuate that myth that only the really abused kids are taken. And mostly it works. And yes, 80%. This is based on many years auditing casefiles for #compliance with #law - to ensure that only children who are being #abused or #neglected are removed. Alecomm hasn't audited one single case yet where #docs workers haven't broken the law. Not one in over a decade.
Children and Young Persons (Care and Protection) Act 1998 No 157 - S51 Duty of Secretary to give information to certain persons
(1) If a child or young person is in the care responsibility of the Secretary under this Part or a warrant issued under section 233, the Secretary:
(a) must, as soon as practicable, cause notice of the fact that the child or young person is in the care responsibility of the Secretary, and the fact that an application may be made to the Secretary for the discharge of the child or young person from the care responsibility of the Secretary and the procedures for making such an application, to be given to:
(i) in the case of a child who is of or above the age of 10 years or a young person—the child or young person, and
We are a registered and well known charity, who are supported by other well known advocates. The only people who dislike us are corrupt. Those people we don't care about and are the ones we go after for that exact reason.
We are the only organisation in the country that audit case files for compliance with law and we are very good at what we do.
We also run various RISE programs - which were introduced by the FBI in 1996.
Cartel lawyers in Goulburn are quickly closing rank in an effort to stifle the smell of corruption that currently emanates from the NSW children's court.
Intimidating letters meant to threaten victims and their families into silence are still flowing from solicitors who have no idea of the incoming tsunami heading their way in epic proportions.
And so the evidence continues to pile up in favour of those who have had their families ripped apart in order to fill the pockets of those who reap the rewards whilst victims have suffered in silence for far too long.
Cartel activities are finally being exposed in Goulburn district, with irrefutable evidence that hopes to shine a light on those who traffick children under the nose of the taxpayers who honestly believe child protection is not a business.
Hume Legal - Joanna Jarasevic - picked up another easy score, that over a few months makes ten thousand dollars cash, and cashed right in. Unfortunately this lawyer was not working for the department at the time, and had no right to deliberately tank her clients case which ultimately ended up with the kids sent to foster care till they're eighteen. The case was simple, clear cut and the biggest point on her side, was the Emergency Order for removal of the kids was not only unlawful - it was maladministration at best and corruption at worst.
The cow should have had this case dismissed. Instead she did nothing in almost a month. Not one affidavit. All she did was collude with the department, and used her scare tactics saying "there's heaps of evidence". Our auditors concluded the complete opposite, and to tell her clients to "consent to establishment", was giving up the battle before it started. She had a fantastic opportunity to put some overreaching lazy caseworkers in place and on the spot, and to save other families the same fate she sentenced this family to. But that would have meant doing more work, and getting paid less money in the long run. As most legal aid lawyers state "they don't get paid enough money to do affidavits". For christ sake, how can parents defend themselves when their own solicitors roll over because it's more financially viable.
Regarding the allegations - there wasn't a thing that couldn't be explained and most of their [FACS] dribble was lies. So much, it would make your toes curl, believe me. Fucking dirty child trafficking mutts. NB: This mutt was given enough notice that her clients were now informed of what happens when u CONSENT TO ESTABLISHMENT. They told her No. And she lied in court and said they said yes, making docs not have to even prove one of their single reprehensible lies. They make me sick. The whole lot of them.
We really need to get control freaks out of our government. They're supposed to be public servants not Lords and masters. As someone who has suffered the irrational and corrupt way that child services deals with innocent parents I can say with confidence that unless your child is being starved, beaten, hog tied and kept in a dungeon they are better off with you than our crooked child agencies.
Businesses that make agreements with their competitors to fix prices, rig bids, share markets or restrict outputs are breaking laws and stealing from consumers and businesses by inflating prices, reducing choices and damaging the economy. [i] Some estimates suggest that while a cartel is operating, the price of affected commodities rises by at least 10 per cent. Worldwide, cartels steal billions of dollars every year. [ii]
In Goulburn NSW, there are three lawyers designated to work on the NSW Children’s Court Care Panel. Lawyers on the “Care Panel” are specifically trained to deal with care and protection matters in NSW. For remote and rural areas, where care and protection proceedings have been instituted by the state, one lawyer is allocated to the children in the case, one is allocated to the department and the other will be the duty lawyer, in which will take on the case for the parents.
YOU walk up the stone steps onto an ageing red carpet, past a gallery of former speakers and into the house of disgrace.
Welcome to the most corrupt parliament in Australian history — the NSW Legislature.
In nine months, 11 Liberal politicians have resigned, stepped down or moved to the crossbenches amid corruption investigations. Labor’s ship has been equally rat-infested, with names like Obeid, Macdonald, Kelly and Tripodi now bywords for the stink in Macquarie St.
“You’d probably find maggots if you dug the foundations,” one former state MP said.
NSW’s corruption shame can be traced back to 2007, when Morris Iemma won Labor’s fourth successive term in government. The sense of entitlement that came with 16 years in power was irresistible to some MPs, who treated parliament as a personal fiefdom and rorted the system to benefit themselves.
