    Been following this post a little bit. Bundaberg is my home town and I've spent a bit of time in Childers over the course of my life, so it's of particular interest to me.
    i would definitely rather just follow what the local paper, the News Mail, are printing. I agree that it looks like the courier mail is making up its own stories.

    That poor baby.

    Those poor parents.... how tormented they must feel. Not only the community, but even the parents blamed themselves, thinking it was someone they knew or their fault somehow. Ends up, it was someone unknown to them.

    May they heal and find some peace.
    No...they think they are more likely to get away with it because the parents are usually too drugged out to notice their kid is gone. The parents should wear some of the blame if they are too out if it to protect their kids. (Not saying this is the case here). That's why those kinds of families are targeted.

    Bollocks! I know first hand that is not alway true! Every child is innocent and easy prey in the eyes of a predator.

    Whoa, just whoa...

    Lets just slow down and talk in facts rather than judgments. Children are far more likely to be abused by someone in their circle than a random stranger. This happens regardless of socioeconomic status

    Nuh-uh. The more vigilant a parent, the harder it is for a predator.

    Once again I'm going to suggest you take a step back and consider all is not as it seems on appearance. Random predators are very scarce, and children get abused when in the care of very vigilant people because predators are manipulative and sneaky. They rarely appear as you would expect a "predator" to look. I bet you wouldn't recognize 99% of predators if you faced them in a line up

    Oh FFS! So any child that has been harmed was the result of their parents not being vigilant enough?

    Pp had said kids from troubled homes are easier targets because predators know people will blame the parents. I just said it was more likely kids from troubled homes are easier targets because their parents either don't care or they are too out of it to properly protect their kids.

    I never said that loving, vigilant parents are not likely to find themselves in a bad situation. I agree that it is very scary how innocent these kinds of people can make themselves seem.
