  1. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.theguardian.com/society/2019/nov/08/nsw-child-protection-workers-regularly-mislead-court-and-needlessly-take-indigenous-kids-report) reduced by 84%. (I’m a bot)

    > New South Wales child protection workers regularly give "Misleading" evidence to the children's court, often take the most traumatic option by removing Aboriginal children – including newborns – from their families, and operate in a "Closed system" that needs urgent reform to make it more transparent and child-friendly, according to a new report.

    > The review, led by University of NSW pro-vice chancellor professor Megan Davis, is the first to look at how Aboriginal children and families manage in the child protection system, and its findings are damning.

    > It said the NSW child protection system lacks transparency, has no effective regulator and its reforms are regularly devised and implemented with little or no genuine consultation with the Aboriginal community.

  2. Stolen generation never ended, only rebranded.

  3. Yeah… nah. FACS doesn’t take kids unless they have to, they just don’t have the resources to work through the case load they have normally without looking for unnecessary work.
