Dad of 9-year old drunk not naming alcohol supplier. Why?

When it comes to the 9 year old drunk kid, Steve Kilgallon continues the media’s focus on anything but the real problem. ?Today, a piece on the poor disenfranchised father

The father of the nine-year-old Hamilton boy caught on video drunk at a skatepark says police have made no contact with him over their investigation and he plans to lodge an official complaint about their behaviour.

…”Nobody has got in touch with me, not CYFS, not even the police – they have not even told me a thing. I reckon it is their job, their responsibility to tell both parents [of the progress of the investigation], and if they are not going to do their job properly, I am going to take it higher.
