Graham Bell from Police Ten 7 has a way with words and the person who edited this deserves a pat on the back.
In instances like this, the idea of needing a license to become a parent seems attractive.
A four-year-old girl from the Gold Coast remains seriously ill at the Royal Children’s Hospital after allegedly being poisoned by her mother.
Police allege her 22-year-old mother began feeding her daughter in June last year with chemotherapy drugs reportedly bought over the internet.
The woman was charged with grievous bodily harm on Wednesday and appeared in a Brisbane court on Thursday.
She did not apply for bail, and will remain behind bars in police custody until her next court appearance next month.Her arrest came after an investigation by South Eastern Region detectives and the State Crime Operation Command’s Child Safety and Sexual Crime Group.
A police spokesman said the investigation was brief, lasting about one week from the time it was brought to the attention of authorities.
According to News Limited reports, the mother had been publishing details of her daughter’s condition on social media, creating a Facebook page dedicated to daughter which was followed by 7000 people.
The page is said to include photos of the young girl, including images of the girl lying prostrate in a hospital bed, covered in bruises and without her hair.
Her baldness came about after she underwent a bone marrow biopsy and suffered an upper intestinal bleed, blood in her urine, and rapid weight loss which lead to the application of a nasogastric tube late last year, the mother reportedly wrote on Facebook.
Doctors had previously cleared the girl of leukaemia after her mother brought her to hospital in February last year, saying her daughter had begun bleeding from the gums, was bleeding in “uncommon places”, and had developed a “meningitis-like rash”.
The mother reportedly returned to hospital with her daughter in November after the bruising returned, leading to the biopsy and a diagnosis of severe aplastic anaemia.
The condition can be inherited, but it may also stem from exposure to chemicals, drugs, radiation and infection.
How can you do that to anyone, let alone your own child?

Sterilising drug addicts. And why stop there? DPB Beneficiaries with 2 children? The mentally handicapped? Oh, let’s not forget those lowlife mothers that let their “boyfriends” beat their children to death.
This literally makes me want to weep. These ferals are out there breeding and then killing their offspring. When you read all this you realise that the kid was probably better off dead.
It is sickening.
Loffley is charged with murdering two-year-old JJ on November 14, 2011, at Lawrence’s Orakei home, by hitting him so hard in the stomach it ruptured his internal organs.
Earlier in cross-examination today, Lawrence admitted she was an alcoholic who smoked P and cannabis around her son.
She also admitted she did not take the boy to a doctor for several days after he broke his arm.
Lawrence yesterday gave testimony of Loffley forcing her son to smoke marijuana.
Under cross-examination today, she was painted in a similarly negative light.
Lawrence admitted getting “wasted” a lot and sometimes blowing cannabis smoke in JJ’s face herself.
“I probably used to blow some in his face but he used to give him full on spots,” she said of Loffley.
Lawrence said she took drugs and drank a lot but all the drugs came from Loffley’s friends and she usually had a babysitter.
She sold cannabis tinnies to her friends but insisted that it was Loffley’s “shop”.
Chambers put it to her that Loffley had offered to call an ambulance after JJ suffered a broken arm for a second time.
She said she did not remember but she admitted she waited several days before taking JJ to hospital because she was drunk and “I was worried about JJ getting taken from me”.
Pyjamas in public is apparently coming into fashion. Heaven help us New Zealanders have finally found something more stupid to wear in public than cycle pants, ugg boots and placing their pants below their waists exposing underwear.
In Christchurch according to “Depress”
Christchurch is seeing an increasing trend of people wearing pyjamas outside during the day.
Coco Chanel was a fan of wearing her PJs in public in the 1920s, and sleepwear has frequently graced the runway at fashion shows, but Cantabrians are taking it a step further – donning their nightwear at supermarkets, restaurants and shopping malls.
Hagley Day ‘n Night Foodstore manager Kerry Swaney said people often came into the store in their pyjamas during the day, sometimes as late as lunchtime.
“They don’t seem to care or feel self-conscious at all,” Swaney said.
The issue is a popular debate in the letters section of the Gisborne Herald, with the authors being split into two camps – those who sign off with “No more PJs” or “Love my PJs”.
“In my opinion it’s lazy and totally disgusting. Surely you ladies have pants or a dress to put on? I have even seen a lady in a nightgown at the shops!” said an anonymous comment on the newspaper’s website.
Gisborne mayor Meng Foon said as long as people were clean, he didn’t mind what they wore. Some people wore “hardly anything”, like bikinis, while shopping in the town.
Both have polls running.
There will be a very high correlation between pyjamas in public wearing and ferals. Wait for Michael Laws to comment.
A reader emails about a news item regarding a person afflicted with, amongst other things, Silly First Name Syndrome:
Regarding the passenger removed from a train that is in the news.
I just got off the train having listened to this lady talk to another feral the whole trip, was very entertaining. Highlights:
- People are accusing her of being aggressive simply because she was a female standing up for herself and all those sexist people want to stop it.
- The feral she was talking to said if they ‘just had signs on the policy it would be fine‘ to which she agreed. She was sitting below the sign labelled “Bike Policy”
- A general ‘FTP’ attitude (though not those exact words), much conversation about police heavy handedness, how that is very typical of police, that the police assaulted her, that they had no right to remove her as she had not been trespassed and only someone who has been trespassed may be removed physically.
- Something about pakeha love to employ schemes to ensure maori cant get land back or something, though I could not hear this part of the conversation very clearly so was a bit lost as to where it was going.
- And finally, that it is the governments fault that she can’t speak her own language and that maori are the only indigenous race in the world that cannot speak their own language.
