Morons in the Law System

A judge magistrate in Victoria ordered a 20 month year old Aboriginal boy to be sent to his Uncle - who had a violent criminal record. Why? Because he wanted the kid to be "with his own people". Culture sensitivities and all that. Well, fair enough. But the Uncle had a violent criminal record you moron. Less than a month later, he nearly beat the little boy to death.

For once the social welfare officers were on the ball on this one and opposed this adoption. However the magistrate was "scathing... at what he perceived was a lack of cultural awareness and flouting of legislation aimed at working with indigenous children, families and their children".

What a utter moron. Wait, even morons can render better judgement - this judge ought to get a good head kicking - nothing to worry about since he doesn't have a brain.

Special blame has to be laid with the Victorian Aboriginal Child Care Agency, who supported this travesty.

"VACCA was supportive of the children being placed with their uncle on the basis of their cultural identity and believe that as a couple they had made recent positive changes in their lives, especially since the birth of their own child."

Really, these people ought to get fired from their jobs and sent to do something useful - like being speed bumps on the freeway.
