Rest in Peace Innocent little 8 week old Angel from Wagga Wagga ..... #KidsLivesMatter

This is a memorial post for little Archer... may he fly with the angels

Just 8 weeks old, as innocent and as vulnerable as they get and taken from this earth way, way too soon.

A baby boy is dead and a man is in police custody, after an incident in Wagga's suburbs this morning.

The two-month-old was rushed to Wagga Rural Referral Hospital after police were called to the Kooringal home just before 5am to conduct a welfare check.

A crime scene has been established in Henwood Avenue and a 32-year-old man has been taken into custody.

He is believed to be assisting police with their inquiries.

Details surrounding the incident are still emerging, however it is understood the little boy sustained head injuries but the cause is unknown.

It is understood that paramedics treated the baby at the scene, before transporting him to Wagga Rural Referral Hospital, while in cardiac arrest.

Neighbours have told of their shock, disbelief and heartbreak after learning of the infant’s death.

Neighbour Simone Gowland said she and her daughters were awoken by hysterical crying and police sirens early Monday morning.

Ms Gowland suspected the worst when she saw a man “screaming and sobbing uncontrollably.”

“He just kept saying ‘I’m sorry, I’m sorry,” she said.

“He didn’t put up any fight – he just sobbed as police loaded him into the wagon.

“Even as they drove off, he just kept screaming ‘I’m so, so sorry.”

Please, no violent comments, it is very early in the investigation and we don't want any comments from our page to be used as an excuse to call a mis-trial if it goes to court.

Let's focus on the precious, irreplaceable little bub who has been taken from the world at just 2 months old. We'll never know just what he may have brought to the world.

While we don't know many details at the moment, we do know an 8 week old baby suffered head injuries, and succumbed to a cardiac arrest, that he should have NEVER endured.

No matter what happened, we will fight to ensure it NEVER happens again !

Rest in Peace little Angel, fly high, fly free....
We will be here, fighting to help prevent more babies from dying before their time.

Our thoughts go out to the family and friends.

Rest easy little Bub xx (A)

Man charged over chilling child sex attack at Sydney shopping centre

April 24, 2017 5:20 am/in National /by Jaydan Duck

UPDATE 5:20AM MONDAY | A MAN will face court today, charged with trying to rape a child in a public toilet at a shopping centre in Sydney’s south west over the weekend.

The 45-year-old is accused of striking a 12-year-old boy over the head and dragging him into a cubicle in a bathroom at a shopping centre off the Hume Highway at Bass Hill on Saturday night.

The man allegedly tried to have sex with the child but was forced to release the boy when two men walked into the bathroom. The boy ran out of the toilet and his attacker fled the scene.

Police appealed for public assistance on Sunday afternoon and, within a few hours of releasing a CCTV image of the man, he was arrested.

In a statement released early this morning, police confirmed the 45-year-old was taken into custody around 7pm and has since been charged with assault with intent to have sexual intercourse with children between 10-16.

He was remanded in custody and will front Bankstown Local Court today.

Why are we trusting repeat sex offenders to be of good behaviour and to comply with their conditions of release?

No matter how strict those conditions may be, surely there comes a time when we realise as a community that some people are just not worthy of our trust and the risk is just too great to bear, no matter what precautions we take.

We refer to the case of a 54 yr old man who has been declared a dangerous sex offender under West Australian legislation, appeared in the W.A Supreme Court via video link from Casuarina prison.

He was approved for release.

Now release for him will look somewhat different to release for most sex offenders as he has over 50 restrictions placed on him, including he must live at a specific address, he must take particular medications and he must have no "unauthorised" contact with children.

No "unauthorised" contact with children......now that must be a mis-print.. he should never again be allowed to go near ANY child.

This man, who we are not allowed to know the name of," to supposedly protect his victims from being identified", was serving a sentence of 5 years and 3 months for sexually abusing his Granddaughter in 2009/2010...... she was 6 years old.

I won't even get into what a joke that sentence is... but obviously grossly inadequate and here is why...

Whilst he was being interviewed by police he also admitted to raping his half-sister in the 1980's.

Before that admission his sexual offences were known to go back to 1997 and included convictions for molesting his daughter when she was 11 years old and his step-daughter when she was 12 year old.

Now, I'm just putting it out there, but I don't care how many conditions are imposed on this man, I don't believe he deserves the opportunity to destroy another life.

Four lives...... that we know of......, over at least a 20 year period... leopards don't change their spots and repeat sex offenders don't stop offending unless they are physically restrained from doing so. i.e prison.

So why do we take chances with children's lives?

Sadly, this is one of the better outcomes in our "Justice" System. He was declared a "Dangerous Sex Offender" under W.A legislation which allows for offenders to be kept in custody beyond their release date and to have these special conditions applied to their release back into the community.

Most sex offenders don't have such strict conditions placed upon them and as we know child rapists don't stop just because we make it difficult for them.

Surely it must be time that our courts realise when a child sex abuser shows us what they are and what they are capable of doing, we should believe them and not give them the opportunity to continue adding to their list of victims' lives ruined.

As Maya Angelou would say,
When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.

Chloe Hoson was murdered by her neighbour who was found not guilty due to insanity, reason of mental illness or defect. Under a new plan, her killer and those like him may be released without even the police knowing..

CHLOE Hoson was only five years old when her neighbour strangled her to death, wrapped plastic bags over her head, and placed her body in a cupboard , before dumping her near a creek where she was later found, just 200metres from her home.

Her killer was Tim Kosowicz, 23 years old at the time, a schizophrenic patient who had just been released from a psychiatric hospital and whose use of cannabis triggered psychotic episodes.

He told police, on the November 2003 day, Chloe came with him to his caravan in Lansvale, in Sydney’s south west, to play with his cat — but said he “lost the plot” when she dropped his pot on the ground.

“Then I blacked out and next thing, I was strangling her in my bedroom.” When she wouldn’t die he tied two plastic bags over her head until she stopped moving, he then indecently assaulted her, bound her hands and feet, and put her in a plastic bag.

He was found not guilty of murder due to mental illness — the effects of his schizophrenia meant he did not know what he was doing was wrong, the NSW Supreme Court found — a decision slammed, at the time, as unjust by Chloe’s father Michael Hoson.

Justice David Patten criticised the NSW Health Department for repeatedly discharging Kosowicz from mental hospitals, the last time only weeks before the killing, despite him suffering from psychotic episodes.
"I find it difficult to escape the conclusion that the community failed Chloe," he said.
"Practitioners in mental health had known for years that the accused was an habitual and heavy user of illegal drugs; that he was mentally ill; that he was subject to florid psychiatric episodes in which he was aggressive and dangerous to himself and others; and that he was recalcitrant when it came to following regiments of medication laid down for him."

When those found not guilty of a crime due to mental illness, or defect (insanity), are sentenced they do their time, which can be an indefinite amount, in a mental health facility until the administrators of that facility decide they are competent to re-join society.

Now, there is usually a process that occurs whereby the police, the patient's advocate, the facility, and a representative for the community, (usually the family of their victim/s), come together and try to make an amicable arrangement where the criminal is released under heavy monitoring by the police, and with special conditions in place.

In some states a judge is involved to make the conditions a formal parole style arrangement, and in other states it's just administered by the police.

The criminals in NSW, for example, enjoy a lot of anonymity with their names and faces being instantly suppressed under the mental health care act. It is killers like Kosowicz who are among hundreds of mentally unstable people whose details are being suppressed because they are in the care of the, behind-closed-doors, Mental Health Review Tribunal.

To add to the anonymity they already enjoy, an alarming option being considered by the NSW Law Commission is for police not to be told when forensic patients are released into the community. The Daily Telegraph revealed, last Tuesday, the proposal would mean government agencies would share the ­information, “by agreement” with the police, but only the ­Attorney-General and Health Minister are automatically notified.

Now, why on earth would anyone want to give more anonymity to child killers ? We all know the Attorney General's office isn't exactly forthcoming with information, so why would they be notified and not the police ?

If adopted, the proposal would dramatically extend the privacy rights of offenders.

NSW Police Association’s Scott Weber told news.com.au an important part of an offender’s rehabilitation was making sure they abided by their parole or release conditions, which was a “normal thing for police” to do.

However, that was impossible when police didn’t know who was being let out into the community. “It really is policing 101 for officers to know what offenders are being released.”

Sadly, the NSW Mental health tribunal are a law unto themselves, they do not answer to anyone except the minister for health in NSW (and what are we, on like our 4th one of those ?) and they are never even slightly questioned despite the fact they hide child killers and child rapists identity, saying that they are mentally unfit for society, but it's up to them to decide when they are set free.

Currently in NSW you require a judge to sign off before releasing a person from behind bars, under the mental health tribunal, but under this new plan it would be all in the hands of the tribunal alone.

Hopefully sense will be seen, and the plan will be scrapped. A spokesman for NSW Attorney General Mark Speakman said the report would be taken to Cabinet after it was “carefully considered.”
Does that mean the mental health tribunal will be getting the power they want, or will the plan be scrapped for being alarming and fraught with potential dangers?

We can only wait and see, it'd sure be great if FACAA had a minister on the inside of the NSW State Parliament wouldn't it? If we did we could have them simply go down the hall and handle this sort of thing. WATCH THIS SPACE !

Little Chloe's killer did not do time in prison, he should have. Despite his mental illness, he attacked and killed a 5 year old girl who bravely fought back. He went to the extremes of brutallity to ensure she died.

Child killers and rapists MUST be monitored no matter what mental illness they are living with ! Mental illness does not negate the need for monitoring of those who hurt children ! (A)

Serial child rapist Anton Greg Williams has been released despite being declared a high risk of re-offending.

This case is nothing short of absolutely absurd !

Firstly the QLD Attorney General's office does the right thing and petitions for this multiple time child rapist to be locked behind bars indefinitely, where he should be !

Here's why, On November 22, 1990 Mr Williams pleaded guilty, in Mount Isa District Court, after being accused of sexual acts with at least five boys including anal and oral sex (FACAA would call that rape, children cannot give consent), and masturbation. The offences occurred when he was 18 years old, on Mornington Island and resulted in three years probation.

24 years later, on December 8, 2014 Mr Williams pleaded guilty in Townsville District Court to multiple charges of indecent treatment of children, after he committed various sexual acts with a group of boys aged five to 12 years old. He was sentenced to three years in prison.

So then last July, the Attorney-General applied for Williams to be detained indefinitely.

Judge Burns ruled in favour of the now 44-year-old Williams, in the Supreme Court of Queensland. The Appeals Court decided after hearing the advice of three psychiatrists that it was possible for Mr Williams to be released provided be could be supervised in community-supported accommodation.

He was held in custody after his scheduled release date of December 11, 2016, while the search for suitable accommodation was ongoing.

Here's the first absurdity, according to Judge Burns the so called supervised community-supported accommodation is Wotton Lodge in Townsville, which is an aged care/ disability facility. It may have 24hr staffing but they are not guards they are aged care workers, is it fair to expect them to police Williams and make sure he doesn't leave the facility?

This aged care facility is 6 minutes walk from a public school and 5 minutes from a pub. The problem with that is the fact that Williams is an alcoholic who says that drinking "brings the voices back".

He says the voices are what tells him to do bad things, like sniff petrol and have sex with children (again that would be rape).

The fact is he doesn't take responsibility for his crimes, he blames it on his victims or on the voices in his head.

Wouldn't you think they might want to accommodate him away from alcohol considering alcohol is what brings out the voices, and the voices are what apparently make him rape children ?

No, of course not... I mean they don't even have him in a lock down facility... he is in a damn nursing home.... this is the community-supported accommodation... a nursing home.... wow just wow (btw when did we the community, want to support child rapists ? I know I want zero part of it. We can only imagine how the residents and their families feel about sharing a facility with a repeat child sex offender).

One psychiatrist Dr Beech, said Mr WIlliams was an alcoholic with a well-documented history of mental illness, including chronic schizophrenia and also carried cognitive impairments after a fall as a child. He said that Williams shows very little empathy for his victims and blames them, or the alcohol, or the voices, or apparently anything but himself....

The psychiatrists agreed Mr Williams was a high risk of offending again but didn't think that accommodating him in prison would be suitable. Instead they supported the respondent's release on supervision, provided he was placed in community supported accommodation to manage the risk that he would reoffend.

How the flying hell is a nursing home going to manage this guy's risk of raping more children ?

When Williams preys upon more children, who should be charged with accessory to his crimes ?

To those who have made this decision...You have stated he is a high risk of re-offending and still you let him out with only, up to 60 hours of support a week in an aged care facility !

"In my opinion, the adequate protection of the community can be reasonably and practicably managed by a supervision order incorporating the conditions incorporated in the draft supervision order," Judge Burns said.

We hope and pray you are right Judge Burns because the welfare of children in the Townsville area is at risk and we doubt that an aged care facility can adequetly manage a multiple time convicted child sex offender and stop him from preying upon more children.

The safety of our children must come before the rights of the repeat child sexual offender.

There is a multiple time convicted child rapist free, living in a nursing home that will supposedly stop him from raping children... how, we simply do not know...

There is no justice in our legal system, FACAA will change one law at a time until the rights of our children to be safe come before the rights of child rapists to be free !

Anton Greg Williams should be locked up for life like the QLD Attorney General's office wanted ! (A)

FACAA found this petition (it's not ours) to have him locked up again, please sign it and share it everywhere !

Michael Guider serial paedophile and killer of Samantha Knight, somehow has the right to apply for parole in April 2018.

He previously applied for parole in 2014 but thankfully it was denied. He was to apply for parole last week but he turned it down, so his next shot at parole is April of 2018. If that fails he will be released in 2019.... no we are not kidding.

Maybe he didn't apply for parole because he is busy doing his tax payer funded university degree in Archeology, or writing one of the 16 short books he has penned while in prison, and published, also on the tax payers dime.

So, why is this remorseless, repeat child molester and killer, being offered parole? Why is his file not marked NEVER TO BE RELEAED ? Why is he allowed to write books and do university degrees on the tax payers dime ?

I'm personally rather offended that someone who was convicted of 60 charges against 11 children and who killed Smanatha Knight (and was only found guilty after the cellmate he bragged to about the crime, told the world), is getting to do university degrees whilst getting ready to apply for parole, a parole that he does not deserve.

He has never told where Samantha Knight's remains are, leaving her family with the inability to bury their loved one who went missing in 1986.

Guider is a predator, he would groom single mothers of children, and as a trusted friend he would babysit. He would then drug the children,
giving them Temazepam in their soft drink.

Once the children passed out Guider would molest them and take pictures of the whole thing.

So this predator is currently behind bars, able to apply for parole, studying archeology at university and writing books.... here's an idea, he killed a young girl and never told anyone about it, he molested children and took photos of it .... LOCK HIM UP INSIDE A CELL, AND NEVER LET HIM OUT!

That is literally all he deserves! Nothing more !

He can't claim he is reformed and has changed his ways. We would never know what had happened to Samantha Knight had his cell mate not spoken out about his jail house confession and if he were truly sorry he would tell the family where Sam's remains are now. He will not.
No body, no release... simple.

People like Guider are the reason FACAA say that child abusers cannot be rehabilitated. They are remorseless to the point where they don't even believe they have done anything wrong ! So why would anyone expect them to change their ways.

Michael Guider should not be able to apply for parole, he should not be doing a university degree, he should be locked away for the rest of his natural life, in a 6 by 8 ft cell and that is all.

His 11 victims, (that we know about), are serving life sentences thanks to him, and Samantha Knight never got a chance to grow up, her life was taken by Guider, so why should he get the chance at freedom, and the chance to continue his predatory ways.

One of his survivors Chantel, has spoken out to keep Guider behind bars. She knows only too well what he is capable of as she was only 6years old when he drugged her, molested and photographed her and her friend.
Now 28 yrs old, she is doing all she can to keep him from harming another child. She has started a petition to keep Guider behind bars, please sign the petition and help us to help her keep him where he belongs.

A serial child rapist who was supposed to be on a supervision list, was taken off the list and has now been found allegedly raping another child.

Wow! What a massive, massive shocker, a multiple time convicted child rapist who was on a heavy supervision list is suddenly taken off it and lo and behold he goes back to raping children. Well we couldn't have forseen that one, could we.

Seriously, the department had a better chance of the sun not rising, or the tide not coming in, than this notorious child rapist, not raping a child once he was taken off the supervision list and free to do so.

ONE of the state’s worst child sex offenders was allowed to prey in the community again after a bizarre decision to take him off a supervision list.

Here's the thing, the person who made this decision to take this horrific child rapist off the supervision list, should be arrested for aiding and abetting the rape of a child, or at the very least contributing to the crime.

Fact is, if you or I knowingly released a dangerous dog into a children's playground, and it bit a child, we would be charged and rightfully so ! So why does the bureaucrat who let this child rapist off the supervision list not get charged as part of this child's rape ?

You can't for a second tell us they had no idea what he would do ! The fact is this particular child rapist, (who of course was granted a suppression order to protect his name and face from the public), was one of the state's worst ever child rapists.

So why take him off the supervision list ?

The 69-year-old had once been classified as a high risk sex offender, but last week he was arrested for allegedly raping a 15 year old boy.

(For the record, the Daily Telegraph, one of our sources on this article, did refer to it as a sexual relationship with a 15 year old child. THIS IS NOT A RELATIONSHIP, IT IS RAPE. Children cannot give consent and without consent, it is rape.
We would like to see the Daily Telegraph change the language they use to appropriately label the crime. It is rape, calling it a relationship makes it sound like acceptable behaviour, when we should, as a community, be condemning it as the heinous crime that it is).

He now faces 11 counts of sexual intercourse with a person aged 14 to 16 years. Mr Speakman said he was “disturbed about the nature of the allegations”.

It is understood a review has been ordered into why the assessment committee did not recommend the Government apply through the Supreme Court to have the predator kept on an Extended Supervision Order.

So, seriously who made this decision and why are they not being charged with at the very, very least child endangerment ?

Sadly, there will be no charges laid, the faceless bureaucrat who made the choice to take him off the supervision list will be told to be more careful in the future (or more than likely make sure to not get caught by the papers) and once again a child rapist is released to rape our children yet again.....

When will our system realise that child rapists like this one, can never be rehabilitated and will be dangerous to children for as long as they are alive!

The simple solution is to mark all repeat child rapist's files with NEVER TO BE RELEASED and mean it. (A)
