The Canberra Times has details of a terrifying case seeking suitable care in the ACT system.
Here are some highlights:
the Education and Training Directorate has said the boy, who has homicidal fantasies quelled by medication, is not welcome back into mainstream schools
The boy spent about eight months on remand after expressing homicidal fantasies after his arrest for the animal cruelty offences earlier this year.
psychiatrists expressed the view the bright student with a high IQ could mask both his mental illness and the murderous fantasies because of his intellect.
He’s being put in the care of the ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal which apparently is having to make provision for this kind of thing from scratch.
