Baby-Stealing is Dangerous!
June 16, 2008 permalink
Reports from Queensland Australia show that baby-stealing is a dangerous occupation. The minister can't seem to understand why parents would use force to defend their children.
Child safety workers being assaulted, threatened: Minister
Seventy child protection workers and carers in Queensland have reported being threatened or assaulted so far this year.
The State Government has revealed the figures in an answer to a Question on Notice.
Child Safety Minister Margaret Keech says last week a parent punched one of her officers in the face and kicked them in the groin.
She says she wants laws changed to increase the maximum penalty for offences against child safety staff.
