As you all know, I don’t have children. I have no interest in having children (I had an Implanon put in last year to prevent that). But I know poor parenting when I see it. And if it’s painfully obvious to the child-free, it should stick out like Uluru in the middle of Sydney to the authorities.
A 3 year old boy is unconscious after drinking from a soft drink bottle he found in the street outside his home. According to authorities, the boy was playing with his brother outside a block of flats in Melbourne’s CBD about 8pm yesterday when he found the discarded bottle. Being three years old, and possibly not knowing any better, he thought it was a yummy drink and took a swig. His parents called 000 after he became seriously ill from drinking the random liquid, and when the ambos arrived minutes later, he was unconscious. The ambos managed to stabilise him at the scene and took him to the Royal Children’s hospital where he was in a serious condition.
Authorities are performing tests on the liquid and the boy to determine what was in the liquid. They suspect it may be GHB – a date rape drug. However, police are not investigating the matter.
This story is like a “Can you spot what’s wrong with this picture?” So let’s play… Firstly the boys were unsupervised out on the street. The brother is obviously too young to be adequately supervising a younger sibling, since the little boy managed to drink out of a random bottle. Secondly it was 8pm. Shouldn’t the boys have had dinner, had a shower and be in bed by then? Big Dog comes on at 7:30 to tell the boys and girls to go to bed. Thirdly and most importantly, where the fuck were the parents? They did seek help for the little boy, but why did they let them play out on the street unsupervised just after sunset? All of this could’ve been prevented if the parents had routine and supervision for their children. It’s unbelievable that the cops aren’t investigating, when this was a clear case of child endangerment and neglect.
Hopefully DoCS or DHS or whatever the fuck it’s called now will stop by and help these breeders fly straight. GHB could’ve easily killed the little boy. It could’ve been piss, alcohol or acid and the outcome could’ve been devastating. All because some dopes wouldn’t supervise their kids. Judging by “block of flats” it may well be a public housing lot. Would explain a few things, unsupervised kids, drugs, apathetic parents. Would love for a ‘tard-defender to come here and try to “explain” this gross act of idiocy.
