Very sad story!


Justice in Melbourne


A seven-year old boy was at the centre of a Melbourne courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him. The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulation requiring that family unity be maintained to the highest degree possible.

The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried and said that they also beat him.

After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him.

After two recesses to check legal references and confer with the child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Richmond football team, whom the boy firmly believes is not capable of beating anyone.

alsi did the rounds a couple of years ago with Freo
Also the Richmond team was ruled out of the Carl Williams murder because we're not capable of beating anyone.

Oh that's *smile* hilarious...

It's this day and age I can't fathom how child abuse is accepted as a theme for a (poor) attempt at humour???

Sorry to sound so precious.

I think / hope we are better than this as a collective.

It's only a joke, don't get your gonads in a knot. :)

No one accepts child abuse.

Is it okay to promote Pitbull terriors? A vicious animal bred to fight and responsible for some horrendous attacks on children.

The world has gone *smile* mad - it's a freakin joke not an endorsement for child abuse.
