Tasered dad who used 15-month-old son as shield during police standoff gets bail--and supervised visitation (Queensland, Australia)

This is daddy coddling/mother bashing at its highest level.

Frankly, UNNAMED DAD is a useless piece of sh**. This is the SECOND partner with whom he has violated a domestic violence order, and this is the SECOND time he has been tasered by the police.

He has a history of violence with his current partner, who got an order of protection after he assaulted her when she was six months pregnant.

And now this sh** is pulling all the stops on the Daddy Drama crap--and then some. He apparently got drunk and assaulted Mom (since she has a visible bruise on her temple). He then took the baby and used him as a human shield in a standoff with local police. He ASSAULTED A POLICE OFFICER and charged four others.

And yet the magistrate granted this sh** bail--"so he can return home for Christmas." And he gets supervised visitation with the child he used as a shield with police! Great! Let's force more trauma on this little boy! Let's make his safety contingent on whether some nitwit social worker feels like doing his or her job.

Meanwhile, Mom, who is rightfully terrified of retribution, does not have custody of her son. Even though she was the one who had a protection order violated, and there are NO ACCUSATIONS of wrong doing on her part. So why does she have supervised visitation as well?

This shows the real double standard when it comes to men and women, and how male criminals are often treated BETTER than the female victims. Sickening.


Taser dad's violent past


A FATHER tasered while clutching his baby son to his chest, allegedly as a shield, was granted bail yesterday so he can return home for Christmas.

But it won't be a festive family reunion for the 36-year-old well-known Ingham business owner - after his 15-week old baby was seized by the Department for Child Safety and his 28-year-old defacto partner left him.

Child Safety took the baby just hours after being advised of the weekend's "alleged alcohol-fuelled domestic violence" incident in which the father is accused of picking up the child so "police would not shoot him" - then punching a policeman several times to the head and repeatedly charging at four officers.

At 3am on Saturday, December 17, police tasered the man while he was holding the child, who was not injured. The mother packed her bags and left the shared home immediately afterwards and she is now residing in Townsville awaiting the return of her baby, with whom she can have only supervised contact.

The woman, who has a visible bruise to her temple and is "in fear of retribution", plans to move down south with her family, as it wasn't the first time her partner has allegedly been violent towards her and the child.

He is also accused of breaching a domestic violence order, put in place on June 3 this year in Ingham Magistrates Court, for assaulting her when she was six months' pregnant while they walked home from a local restaurant.

Magistrate Peter Smid recognised the defendant from a different domestic violence order breach against another woman. He was tasered after a 2010 incident incident involving his former partner and their two young children.

"I have a sense of deja vu about you - because back then you also had a similar practice of hanging your head in shame and that's how I recognise you," Mr Smid said.

"You don't fool me because I know what sort of person you are - you are a violent person at times."

The magistrate granted the man bail for the sake of his business, with defence lawyer Tara Payne submitting it would suffer considerably over the busy festive period.

The man has been bailed until January 23, 2012, on five charges including endangering a child by exposure, breaching a domestic violence order, assault or obstruct police, serious assault and wilful damage.

Mr Smid did not impose an alcohol ban, despite police prosecutor Colleen Wainwright submitting "he is a nice man until he drinks", but ordered he have no contact with the mother. he is allowed supervised contact with his son.
