How and when to remove children from their homes? A federal lawsuit raises thorny questions
"A former Massachusetts family is hoping that a lawsuit will set a precedent for state child welfare agencies that want to remove children from their homes. Sarah Perkins says when she lived in Waltham Massachusetts last year, she took her three month old to a hospital emergency room for a high fever. She says when x-rays were done, doctors found a rib fracture and days later. We heard a knock at the door and it was armed police officers with several people from the department of children and families there to take our kids. Perkins says her son likely sustained the injury weeks earlier when her mother removed the baby from a car seat, he slipped and her mom caught him by grabbing one of his arms, still Perkins says it took her and her partner three months in about $50,000 in attorney's fees to have parental custody fully restored. Perkins and her partner are plaintiffs and a lawsuit alleging constitutional violations, including deprivation of parental rights without due process. I'm Donna water

"Of global warming. So it's not the fact that the heat wave has occurred and it's also made a whole. Hey but it's just how hot it's bain than where it's where it's been directly time right because it's been happening exactly three or four days of had these consistent temperatures and even i'm hearing today that you know fi is a breaking out as well so again. What surprise by that link back to the some away how to hear a couple of years ago that was catastrophic. We had all that hot with an straight after all even jeering at the same time we had those really horrible bushfires that link between dry hot conditions bush is very close so that immediate current doesn't surprise me but it's just the sheer intensity those temperatures at that location. That's what's so shocking into putting perspective. We've never seen temperatures that included metropolitan sydney or melbourne basically. Anyway where most of israeli population and we're considered a really hot and dry really chelsea. Yeah half what it. Spain raelians we kind of no hate waves. We know how oppressive they are as you say we know the link to bushfires but what other impacts does extreme hate really have us cds even on our bodies in health. Yes so this is another important thing. At least you know might be a blessing but here necessarily we know how to deal with the heat. We know that we need to turn a fan on. We know that we need to open a window. Is it not to let the cool brave. Come in and shut the house during the day to capable the hate out. We're kind of adapted to that sort of situation as best as we possibly can date but these countries have never experienced eight like these and at least the people leaving the dark and have the capacity or even the behavioral ability to to know what to do in these types of conditions not some fortunately would have contributed to the death tolls that were now starting to say come out of canada and the northeast and northwest uci. Fear it's an on top of that. It's what the damage you can do to infrastructure so for example Trial train lines buckle. And they sort of extreme hate power comp transmitted at least wanna put on their fans or the air conditioning. They're less likely to get that power in the first place the impacts well beyond just a halt sweating dr sarah this summer in the northern hemisphere and this heat wave is. It predictor at all for what we might deal with in australia in a few months or is that completely separate. Look it's look it's completely separate. I'm not. I'm not about to say will just because canada's near basically fifty degrees celsius we're going to do the same knicks we can't go. We can't say that we can't go to that level of greenwich granularity dependent on another location. But it certainly is thought of what's going to come as hot hate. Waves that lost forever that smash records a day after day after day. Those sort of patents. Yeah absolutely we may not say that in ustralia this summer we happened to us a couple of summers ago but to say that more frequently over the next twenty thirty forty fifty years. Yes definitely that will happen. You're listening to hack on. Triple j mccormack. I'm joined by dr sarah perkins patrick from us. W we're talking about the hate waves in the northern hemisphere right now on the text line. Someone says from vancouver. No-one back home has air conditioning. Because no one has needed it before someone else says. This haven candidate is insane. Imagine if we had fifty degree temperatures in the snowy mountains. Dr sarah. I mean it seems like every summa recently has been record breaking. I still this main. That was like this isn't the hottest summer your life. It's actually the coldest summer you'll have from now on how elvis is going to hate up. What impact is the constant record-breaking have on us and our perception of climate change really interesting question so for someone like me it. Just kind of drivetime. The point that climate change is year now people like how much more evidence do you need. The i can understand how people might get a bit of fatigue from it because like you said does that record was broken. Loss key role that record breaking yesterday and might almost become a sense of normality that will just climate now the sense that the horses bolted. And that we don't have we can't get on top of it because it's just moving so quickly every year but that's not necessarily the case. Is it not so we. We are at a critical point in the sense that we are aren't the situation where we have reached one degree warming. If we work really really really hard we can hopefully mitigate against two degrades global warming. We do have to to that. But we have that chance but i also wanna you know reinterpret that even if we don't quite night degrees wing in we have shoot that a little bit. We really need to do all that we can. So it's never too late to make a change. And i know how hard and how it is to hear about all these Events and you lose that sense of control and we may as well just give up now but that's really not what we should be doing. We should be holding onto the fact that any change is good change and we should be doing as much of those changes as soon as possible. Absolutely well that's a good message to end on. Sarah thanks so much pretending to us today. Entrepot jane like having. That's dr sarah perkins kirkpatrick there. She's from us. W nothing in sports on his desk rules. My issues on on triple this week. Been a lot of talk about how the government's handling the vaccine rollout but as being a huge political story. That's kind flown onto the right direction. You should know about it the day before the last election was called back in two thousand nine nineteen scott morrison spent almost four hundred million dollars on a bunch of cop pox to be built new train stations. Kinda random but stay with me is why it's interesting. The majority of those projects were in coalition or liberal national party electorates and an audit. This wake found. The projects weren't approved on merit critics. Say the government. Basically approved these projects just before the election to try and buy votes. Let's get the basics on this story. Find out what it means and roses hacks brisbane report before joining us. She was a political reporter in cambra. Tamsin break it down for us. Why should i care about the government spending money on car pox. A hey and yeah. We certainly don't need to care about cox to care about this story. The government government money is effectively all of our money. So in this case we're talking about how six hundred sixty million dollars was spent. So we've got skin in this. The nitty gritty is effectively that auditor general has been looking at how forty-seven seven cox promised funding just before the two thousand nine election during that campaign and a report out. This week had some pretty massive findings as you mentioned before none of the projects chosen had been recommended by the department infrastructure. Almost ninety percent. We're in liberal on marginal seats that the government was trying to win the election on a lot. We're in this pot of melbourne. That was not an area that was most in need by victoria. So why do we care if what some people are saying is correct and this was a tactic that was used to gain votes for the government to stay in powell without could have effect an effect on who's in government and we know that affects everyone and can you give us some context here. It feels like ages ago a lifetime before the pandemic but at that time in twenty nine. How scott morrison and the coalition feeling about their election. Chances yet it does feel like a really long time ago. Now but scott morrison and the whole government was pretty much feeling like it was over. The paul's would hardly in labour's favour. Everyone thought the bill shorten was about to become the prime minister. And so that's one of the things that people who've been talking about this have been saying. Is that this project along with others with these big games that they could promise which they never thought that would have to deliver on and now the having to answer questions about them. And how is the government defending the..

"Campus. And we've been working to try and support. Those students and staff amazon hoping coerced kennedy. Jackson is the ceo of universities australia. She denies that there is a risk shootings. Go to support staff and says students should feel safe talking to them. I just say no evidence at all that there is any inappropriate influence on university administrations I understand what students on nervous. This is very complicated stuff. This is one of those things that universities can do a certain amount abashed but in some cases we need to work with government and with the security agencies this difficult stuff but she sympathizes with the students but they've just got a full which will trade it really sensitively to anything. We can to help. But we don't want people to feel that our lawn strategies that no one can speak abalta chinese asians. This is willie bow. He's kind of big deal. He was named in a group of more than one hundred percents which like political access christensen china. And when i say since it i mean. His name isn't allowed to be published anywhere in china and even the dalai lama is on that list on on yet. But there's a price lucius studying at the anu but his family still in china. He says the chinese government sent his family. Random kids like cow's milk. I in redondo let my family on the by omni. The they want to remind them you that to. My family studies china. The chinese embassy in camera told. Abc news in a statement. The report by human rights watch was rubbish. Human rights watch has decayed into a political tool for the west to attack and sme developing countries should once other shifts in australia to realize how hard it can be very lonely and also is very fearful for us to face this kind of situations because i thought coming here. We'll be better. But i think is like watch better compared to what i was in a in hong hall back on triple j f ahmed yousef reporting there. If you're a uni student does this story surprise you. How would you feel if you couldn't express your political opinions. Text me or fourth rain on seven. Five seven triple five. Let's get more analysis about this report from soaking mcneil. She's from human rights. Watch and put this report together so if you thanks for chatting what do you think this report says really broadly about how chinese students are treated and taken care of in australia. Hey angie look. I think the most alami thing about this report is just to hear how absolutely alone and aussie students felt. They had nowhere to turn on the anyone. Who's going to union australia in the last twenty years has had chinese in that clown and you don't look back and i think what what they go through the pressure that's on them and we don't often discuss these issues so i really hope that this research makes the university's realized how serious these issues has been a code of silence around it. I know we heard there from universities australia but the reality is that incidents have occurred and universities that they want to talk about this swept under the carpet because they do have a real reliance on full fare paying students coming from china and they fear a backlash from beijing if they seem in any way to stand up to the communist party so we think that by plaguing all these experiences and putting it together the university's content. This is a problem and that they they will just take more practical everyday steps that that that will make a difference in improving student safety. He studying. I tend to agree with a point. You might there about about local students like how. How would you think. Local australian students are of this issue that it's happening in this same classrooms. I think a lot of students might be surprised that it's it's happening. Yeah i think we think about it enough. You know to the the freedoms we have to take for granted and that this gin sitting next to us might really want to speak out and give an example of something bad that he's hook data to give their opinion on something like Hong kong low xinjiang. Which is in the news a lot these days but that they can't you know that they scared to and they live in fear. I mean i felt really heartbroken doing these interviews and hearing how absolutely fearful these young people wear and what was so sad is a lot of the kids. I entered known to have spoken to me about this. Thank you for listening what. I've been australia for trees on my cost. I've never said what i thought. And i could never talk to anyone about this. So it was pretty heartbreaking Doing this work in that story. We just had you know the statement from the chinese embassy calling the the report rubbish. What event yeah. I glad they did. I would have felt annoyed if they hadn't taken notice. So you know expected that they love us a question on that i mean. What evidence do we have that. This is happening at a large scale beyond the students that you've talked to in the report so so we. We spoke to students and stuff from sixteen universities across australia in six different states and territories and we need to be nearly fifty interviews halfway that condemning with students and the academics counts really backup. The students are saying and everyone you speak to who knows. Chinese students teaches them. I'm worse done on units looking at any chinese history of things like that chinese politics. Everyone has a story. You know and i really think this is just the tip of the iceberg and we saw you yes university. I'm come out today. you know. They've welcomed report and we really appreciate that. Some universities have really stood up and you know showing leadership in this moment and said yet. We haven't done good enough. We want to do better but ups came out today and said that this report You know that there's more harassment and surveillance that's probably more widespread than what the than what we we got together in the short time that we had you know so Yeah i think that that's moving forward. We're really came to work with unions. Who who say look we. We have to do better and change where we're going in the future yet. It's really interesting to talk about it as the two of the iceberg. I wonder what if more students might come forward now that they have felt comfortable talking to you guys and maybe mobile come forward and this will become a bigger issue. But that's all we've got time for for this segment but sophie mcneill. Thanks so much for joining us today on hack thanksgiving at the time edge. That sophie mcneill. She's from human rights.
