A job for CYF

June 19th, 2012 at 10:00 am by David Farrar

Stuff reports:

An Opotiki policeman says he was shocked to find that a woman he had stopped for drink-driving had a baby on her lap and two other preschool children unrestrained in her car.

Acting on information received from a member of the public, police stopped the 24-year-old woman in Opotiki about 9.30am on Friday. She recorded a breath alcohol reading of 780 micrograms of alcohol per litre of breath – nearly twice the legal limit, Senior Constable Doug Henry said.

She was also found to have been a disqualified driver, so her car was impounded.

This sounds like a good candidate for having their kids removed from them.

    Easy come….easy go. If she loses these three to CYF, provided her plumbing is still in good nick, it will only take another three years of breeding, tops, before the DPB is restored to its rightful level.

    Yet another example of the need for the compulsory use of large corks.

    And yet, as Michael McKee posted in GD, grandparents are denied their grandchild because they “smack”…

    Priorities CYF, priorities…

    Wahine, noting that the girl is the third (by different fathers) child of the unmarried daughter it seems to me CYF are simply removing the family’s meal ticket and using the smacking thing as an excuse.

    I hope I am correct and if so …..

    Well done CYF!

    But the whanau will say: “She’s a nice, wonderful, good-natured woman“. Yeah right.

    Only in NZ. And maybe some southern states too.

    CYF should be keeping a very close eye on welfare people who abuse alcohol. Every beneficiary convicted of a drinking related offence should be advised. If the children are hungry because the welfare money is being spent on booze should be taken off the welfare recipient and his or her benefit be cancelled.

    Tin man… I’d disagree in this case…

    They appear to be genuinely good people.

    Mrs Johnson, 57, said a CYF social worker told her last week: “We were the perfect family, perfect grandparents, if it wasn’t for that little thing and that was smacking.”…

    God knows litte ones get passed from whanau member to whanau member as some sort of income by too many, I see it often in my job… But if cfys only concern is a smack in the bum, leg or hand? Best they spend their limited resources on rescuing children like those in the original post…

    yes you are correct, as it is other peoples money they are spending and as a taxpayer I for one don’t want anyone using any of my taxes for personal wants like booze.

    I’ve emailed both Bob and John Key and his sidekick Peter Dunne on it as a consequence.
    They can’t say they don’t know about the consequences of their perfidy.

    I do empathise with the CYPS workers as they deal with this type of thing day in and day out.
    Probably with much worse and they are tied into rules and procedures that must be mind gruelling for them.
    I really do feel for them and their families too.

    However even an ordinary person can see that the damage they do to ordinary families by the trauma they inflict over ordinary parents (who give a smack on the bum) is reprehensible.
    For that I have no sympathy for them at all.
    and for those who delight in their authority and legality over these folk I know karma does apply to them.

    It is a mark of thr decency of ordinary Kiwi family’s that we haven”t had more violence against CYPS workers on this and against the pricks who voted it in. All 112 of them.

    If someone blew up parliament (and all their occupants) over this I would find it very hard to convict them should I be on the jury.

    Imagine if she’d been smoking. Publicly illegal in Opotiki. But the gutless socialists can’t promote this law in major cities. They always need time for their cancerous policies to spread. They take miles by inches

    I would agree except the story also notes that they use weapons – a wooden spoon.

    Parental smacking is about shock, not pain and an open hand is the only acceptable “weapon”.

    I’m bloody sure I would!

    Blowing up perfectly good buildings just to take out bloody pollies is not on.
