Magistrate Carney wreaking havoc on innocent families in Sydney’s South-West.

Petition · Stop Alberta child welfare from policing itself · Change.orgSix weeks after DoCS took baby "Doc" into "care," they're still breaking every law possible and getting away with it.

Magistrate Carney seems only too happy to adjourn these newborns lives another three months and into the new year to allow DoCS to entertain the court some more with their shenanigans.

Magistrate Carney may have transpired from the Roads and Traffic Committee, but one would think that before she is allowed to make decisions regarding the lives of children, particularly newborns, she must be knowledgeable of the time limits imposed in matters relating to children's courts.

Whether she knows or just doesn't care is irrelevant, because the damage being done to newborn children, whom she happily boasts about "taking three babies per week," is not only unforgiveable but also unlawful.

Two weeks is the maximum that courts may be adjourned for when it comes to proceedings of children (newborns), and this is to ensure that the best interest of the child is looked after—and not the solicitors whose businesses thrive off adjournments, mentions, and evidentiary hearings.

Magistrate Carney isn't the only magistrate allowing blatant breaches of the law to continue in the worst interest of children. Many magistrates do this as it helps the department build its case and ultimately allows them more time to continue to put more rubbish in their affidavits, which most of the time confuses the judge enough to believe that what they are claiming is credible and to make it impossible for the parents to contest each and every lie they put through.

Affidavit writing and creative story-telling need to stop.  This is in the best interest of the child.  No more Stephen Spielberg stories that nobody can keep up with, just stating exactly what the issue is and what has to be done for the issue to go away, and them too.

There should be no Children’s Court "mentions" and adjournments.  If the department doesn't have enough evidence to bring the matter to court, then the case must be dismissed in the interest of everybody.

And if you're going to remove a newborn baby, and they know well in advance that they are going to do this, then DoCS must have all their "i's" dotted and their "t's" crossed.

Magistrate Carney and rogue departmental staff are responsible for ruining thousands of families' and children’s lives.  It’s about time for changes to be implemented in the best interest of the child, not the lawyers and anybody who profits from a family's misery.
