This struck me as a bit odd:
The five and six-year-old girls were taken by their father Jamahl Schou, also known as Jamahl Ake, from their Child, Youth and Family (CYF) caregiver in the Tauranga suburb of Brookfield on Wednesday.
Bay of Plenty police believe the Girls are staying with either extended family or associates of their father.
Police are appealing to the man to return his daughters.
“Their welfare can’t be guaranteed until they have been returned to CYF and on that basis, yes they possibly are in a degree of danger,” Detective Senior Sergeant Greg Turner, from the Tauranga CIB, said today.
Since when did CYF gurantee anyone’s saftey? How many stories are there about children being abused in CYF care, and now you’re telling us their saftey can’t be guaranteed if they’re not with CYF?
In fact, the ultimate irony here was that they got stolen from CYFS custody – showing just how stupid the above claim really is?
