    Exactly. After interacting with these kids it makes me a bit ragey. They deserve so much more.

    Yeh I thought he was dodgy and I'm sure the police knew straight up what was going on.

    I said day one drug debt.

    Reality is (thankfully) children don't often get taken from their beds for no reason. Ppl don't generally get murfered for no reason.

    The truly scary stuff is the random stuff but I reckon a big chunk of these crimes the answer is the most obvious and their is an easy motive.

    I can empathise with parents and understand many factors contribute to these situations and I think we should support them to improve their life etc etc

    But end of the day first and foremost children need protecting beit from dangerous strangers or unhealthy family. It's that's simple in my mind.

    Save the children and the rest is a bonus. Ideally have a healthy relationship with parents and stay in family home but if parents can't do that for whatever reason then children are better off away.

    Chloe almost paid with her life. Her parents nearly got her killed and have traumatised her beyond comprehension. If they were any sort of decent parents they world have told the police the truth once she was taken. But yet again they put themselves first.

    I am on your page completely. If this doesn't give her parents a big kick up the bum and make them clean up their lives/ditch the drugs then I don't know what will.

    So sad for those kids, I'm sure there are kids all over Australia living like this but we just don't see it much so don't realise it's happening. So sad.

    Well, even though the little girl is thankfully alive and home now I still feel so heartbroken for her existence. As well as her sisters. I found it odd that she doesn't have her own bedroom. I also saw the mother pause when they asked if they are involved in drugs. I hope they clean up their act now asap. This should be a life changer for them. Next time they may not be so lucky and the poor little kid will be used to send an even harsher message to them. The whole things makes me sick and i wish CPS would just step in now and take the kids away from those drop kicks.

    According to 7 news he owed thousands of dollars for speed. I feel so sorry for little Chloe... having a 3 yr old daughter myself I cant imagine her living in that kind of environment.

    The Dad seemed more interested in protecting himself than coming clean. Both parents outright lied as well. No excuses. Your children and their safety should come first. Disgusting.
