4 girls taken from their mum
This morning when I put on the radio, I heard the very distressing story of 4 girls who have been taken from their mother here in qld and put on a plane back to Italy to their father, they were manhandled and handcuffed by police. The scenes were absolutely disgusting, these girls were screaming hysterically at being physically dragged into police cars. I cant believe it. How is this in their best interest? How is this legal? Police are only supposed to use reasonable force, yet one girl was face down on the ground with police holding her down and handcuffing her. god I would have kicked the police away. I cried seeing this it was so distressing. I couldn't imagine the horror and distress for their mum. This will be the most traumatic event in the lives of these girls, they are aged 9-15. I dont understand how their father could put them through such an ordeal just to get them back. They will hate him forever for taking them away from the mother they obviously love, and they were on the media earlier this year, they all said they wanted to stay here in Australia with their mum. They wrote to their father pleading to allow them to stay. The court ruled they were unfairly influenced by their mother. Its crap. They had a supportive extended family here, friends and a safe environment. I pray they are somehow allowed to come back home here to their mother, the sooner the better. I pray that their mum stays strong and finds a way to get her girls back. And I spit at the legal system that forced them to leave. There is a facebook page set up called kids without voices. I've left a few comments, but wish there was more I could do. Its just so unbelievable. So thats it for today. Hope yours was better.
