Barnardos Put Politics before Children

this article from http://nzconservative.blogspot .com

Barnardos seem to be putting politics rather than children first, as they quickly capitalize on the recent headlines created by the infamous “Riding Crop” case to push their agenda. The “new” case hasn’t even been judged yet, but as usual, judgment is quickly passed by organisations that should know better.

But since we are asked to “pause and reflect” by Murray Edridge, Chief Executive of Barnardos New Zealand, I will.

Murray muses: “Perhaps the latest incident would have been avoided if the community, through the court, had told the family that the use of physical force in child discipline was unambiguously wrong.”

Well, perhaps the latest incident could have been avoided if CYFS had not removed her younger son against his will from his mother and sister, and kept him away from the family for two years now since the mother was acquitted. Does Murray see any correlation between being found “not guilty” and the psychological damage that follows when the state removes her child anyway?

But let’s wait until the court case is complete and the full facts of the matter come out, before we let the vultures in for the kill. Nice one Murray Edridge.
