Living in Australia, you would think we would be taking pretty good care of our kids hey? We're "the lucky country". Guess how long you generally have to wait to just report child abuse in SA? 10 mins? 20 mins? Surely not more than that right? Heck I can get a hold of Optus customer service in that amount of time... Give up? Try 2.5 hours. Day in day out. Standard wait time. But I guess as long as they help the kids in need eventually hey? Nope. You can have a little girl being picked up off the ground... by her hair... shaken around and screamed at. Abuse resulting in the little kids being covered in bruises... and that's not even a blip on families SA radar. Won't get investigated, doesn't meet the threshold. Case closed, no investigation required. It really really pisses me off. In the other states you might only have to wait 30 mins to an hour to report abuse. So they are a bit better. But kids are literally dying because reports of abuse aren't being followed up: http://theconversation.com/abuse-and-neglect-australias-child-protection-crisis-32664 Makes my blood boil.
