Look Minister, sure the term ‘baby trafficking’ technically sums up what we are doing here, but I don’t think NZ is ready of the phrase yet. Let’s keep calling it child protection.
Cough-Cough – So in 6 months there were 300 instances of neglect or abuse of kids in state care…
Oranga Tamariki has revealed more details about the harm and abuse being done to children in its care – and who is doing it.
In March, the Ministry for Children released its first two reports on safety of children in care, covering the six months to December 2018.
In that period, there were over 300 instances of neglect, or emotional, sexual or physical abuse.
…now remind me again why we are stealing kids & putting them into the ‘safety’ of State care?
Surely if you are going to ‘save’ children from abuse, you don’t then abuse them?
Don’t tell me that we weaponised CYFs uplift policy in 2016 and went about removing as many children big data algorithms tell us will be a long term welfare cost without resourcing the services we will need to send those costly welfare units (children) to?
Tell me this cost cutting agenda to redefine poverty as acute so that universal welfare provision is removed had the fucking foresight to fund the state care these kids will be dropped off in.
Please tell me we didn’t just muscle up the powers to take without making sure there was money and resources to protect those uplifted kids.
Oh look at that, we did do exactly that and 300 kids in state ‘care’ were abused. Oh the lols.
No one is suggesting there aren’t bad bugger parents who need to have their child removed – we are adults, we understand that, but what was unearthed by Oranga Tamariki was a cookie cutter bureaucratic regime focused on seizing children with white saviour zealotry and now it turns out we are abusing those kids in state care.
It is rapidly becoming clear that this uplift policy is as deeply flawed as the meth hysteria policy. The Prime Minister and the Minister need to watch the Newsroom footage today.
