Dad guilty of assaulting 10-year-old son; was picking up son from mother's for visitation (Lara, Australia)

Here's a great story for the "alienation" crowd. Guess you dimwits might have some difficulties grasping the subtleties here, but pay close attention.

Dad SIMON PRIUS shows up to pick up his 10-year-old son for visitation, and immediately starts yelling abuse and calling the mother names. Naturally, the little boy is upset by the way his mother is being treated, and refuses to go with the father (I'm sure the idiots are screaming "maternal alienation" now). So the loving daddy grabs the kid, then the kid falls and bloodies his nose. When mom reacted, Daddy let go of the boy and grabbed her by the throat. Now, do you think Daddy might have contributed to the boy's dislike here? Or shall we just blame it all on Mummy. Don't answer, I know you always blame Mummy no matter what.

Of course, Daddy's attorney tries to make like this is a "relationship" problem with each party contributing to "ongoing difficulties." Which is BS. Seems pretty clear to me who the abuser is in this "relationship."

But just in case that excuse doesn't do the job, we can always blame Daddy's "depression" and "schizophrenia." Which is also done. So much for mothers monopolizing the "mental illness excuse."

So if the guy is this mentally ill, why does he have visitation? Oh yea. The only dads in Australia with no visitation rights are dead, cold, and buried.

Lara man guilty of assaulting son

A LARA man who assaulted his 10-year-old son during a dispute with the child's mother was suffering from depression at the time.

A Geelong court was told that after bloodying the boy's nose, Simon Pruis grabbed his de facto by the throat.

Pruis, 36, of Ware St, pleaded guilty in Geelong Magistrates' Court yesterday to two counts of unlawful assault.

Police prosecutor Leading Senior Constable Kerrie Moroney said Pruis went to his de facto 's home to pick up his children on May 8 last year. She said that when Pruis arrived, he began yelling abuse at his de facto and calling her names.

"Upset at the way Pruis was speaking to his mother, the boy refused to go with his father," Sen-Constable Moroney said. "Pruis then grabbed the boy by the arm and the child fell down the veranda steps, suffering a blood nose."

Sen-Constable Moroney said that when his de facto tried to intervene, Pruis let go of the boy and grabbed her by the throat.

"The boy ran off and Pruis yelled at him, 'Come back you little bastard'," Sen-Constable Moroney said.

"When police arrived the child had a large amount of blood on the front of his clothing and the de facto had red marks and suffered soreness to her neck.

"Pruis also had a graze to the left side of his head."

Sue Fridey, for Pruis, said each party had contributed to ongoing difficulties.

Ms Fridey said Pruis had been diagnosed as schizophrenic and was suffering from depression at the time.

"He has little recollection of what he said," Ms Fridey said. "The child's blood nose was purely accidental.

"There was a general tussle between the parents and the matter escalated from there."

Ms Fridey said the relationship between Pruis and his partner was a difficult one with ongoing problems.

"They part then reconcile, part then reconcile," she said.

Magistrate Ian von Einem convicted Pruis on both counts and placed him on a 12-month community-based order with 80 hours of unpaid community work.
