The story that has re-open Domestic Violence and the fact Judges and courts ignore it.

It's interesting how the New Zealand family court have the blood of  two children and a father on their hands and then Australia has one child and a father.

The thing that annoys me about this the most, is the fact these fathers took the lives of their children with them.
Ok, so they had mental health issue's and sometimes when people decided to do this sort of thing there is really no stopping them. BUT, take a Judge or one of their family members on your little suicide trip!
Don't take your kids. These guys would have generated massive shifts in the behavior of the Judges had they done that. It only takes a dead Judge to get the message out that they need to buck their ideas up in the court room. That's what generated the massive changes in Australia years ago.

It is rare for Family Court judges to speak publicly about their views. Many are still haunted by the 1980 murder of Justice David Opas and 1984 bombings of the Parramatta Family Court building and homes of two judges.

ON a day of mourning for many Australians, the mother of murdered schoolboy Luke Batty has taken the opportunity to plead for more support for victims of domestic violence.
Rosie Batty gave an emotionally charged interview to Today Show’s Georgie Gardner (which aired this morning) in which she described her guilt and grief over the death of her eleven-year-old son at the hands of his father Greg.
“Everyone believed it was me at risk,” Ms Batty told Gardner, “so did I, it never entered my head and neither should it because no one can comprehend that that ever would have happened.
“Luke had begun to notice and understand that his dad was different and he had a lot of anxiety around how he would react in front of people.
“I am still convinced and know in my heart that Greg loved Luke but his act was a totally selfish act and an unforgivable act. He saw a life on the other side with his beliefs and he wanted to share it with Luke.”
It was at times hard to watch as both Ms Batty and Gardner held back tears.
“It’s like a prison sentence,” she said of her former husband’s mental illness, “when does it end? But it has ended for me, it’s ended for me now with a cost that I could hardly imagine.”
Ms Batty said viewers would be shocked to hear that one in three women suffer from domestic violence and that she hoped by her speaking out, other victims would get help.
She added that she wanted her son to be remembered as a “sensitive, funny, fun-loving little boy.
“He wanted to be famous and I think he’s looking down and he’s going ‘I cannot believe this’, and he would just be in his own little way so pumped. He was a good little guy.”
Many viewers took to Twitter to praise the interview and Ms Batty’s bravery and Gardner for the interview.
