"NSW foster carer charged with abuse"

Three children have been found with bruises across their bodies, prompting police to arrest their foster carer in NSW's Hunter region.

On January 10, police were told three children in foster care in the Lake Macquarie Area near Newcastle had a number of injuries.

The children, two boys aged six and seven and a five-year-old girl, had obvious bruising on various parts of their bodies, NSW police said in a statement on Monday.

Child Abuse Squad officers later arrested the children's 47-year-old foster carer.

According to police, officers also seized more than 20 grams of cannabis, 475 grams of a white powder substance, ammunition and a firearm from the woman's home.

The children have received medical attention and are in the care of NSW Family and Community Services.

The woman was charged with a string of offences, including assault occasioning actual bodily harm and drug possession.

She was granted conditional bail to appear in Belmont Local Court on January 20.  (Source : http://news.ninemsn.com.au/national/2014/01/13/16/47/nsw-foster-carer-charged-with-abuse)

This makes Five Foster Carers charged in a matter of a few months. In Newcastle two Paedophile male carers have been charged with Rape of Children. 77 Year old also. And lets not forget the DoCS/FACS manager from the Hunter who repeatedly raped a nine year old girl that took home from work to live with himself and a male house mate. BTW why haven't we heard of the DoCS/FACS managers sentencing or has FACS got a gag order on it.

:oops: And to think that minister goward wants to make all those foster carers be able to adopt these innocent children - and release themself from any further liability. THIS IS A BIG NO NO!

The news article says

"The children have received medical attention and are in the care of NSW Family and Community Services."

Um - weren't they already in the care of FaCS - otherwise they would not be in foster care but with their parents instead !!!

I don't get it
