Canberra’s favourite mother has bail revoked

By johnboy - 6 August 2008 95

The ABC reports that the infamous “Ainslie Mother” has tested positive for methamphetamine, and on her second appearance for breaching bail, been remanded in custody.

She certainly had her chances.

What’s Your opinion?

If only she had been in Isabealla Plains on Monday evening

DMD – what would you do with her children while she spends the next 25 years addicted to meth? Get real. She has proven she cares nothing for her children and she should be removed from them.

Legalising drugs would certainly work. I also think convicted murderers get a hard rap compared to typical Carney offenders, they should be allowed out on weekends to assume a modicum of their ruined lives that the imposition of a prison sentence would naturally affect.

If it wasn’t illegal for the mother to be using meth then she would instead be at home, cheerily making school lunches and helping her kids with their homework

She would?? Hmmm, perhaps I need some :).

I think legalising drugs would fix problems like this. If it wasn’t illegal for the mother to be using meth then she would instead be at home, cheerily making school lunches and helping her kids with their homework.

Nice one Prius.

DMD on his crusade for the drug ‘addicted’ again. It’s a choice like any other. There are plenty of people to turn to for help in the ACT should she choose to ask for it.

The whole she’s using drugs to get away from other issues is a load of crapola as well. Plenty of people have those problems, plenty of people ask for help – others choose to go and get on the gear with complete disregard for those who are in their care.

Back in the hole for you mother of the year.

Angelina Jolie is apparently on the lookout for two Maori children to complete her trendy collection. Now if I could only remember where I put her number…

Throw away the key. She doesn’t do well for the stereotype of the drug-addled welfare recipient, does she?

Unfortunately society has all the incentives to encourage these people to breed. Sounds like the kids would be much better off without her.

Good on you DMD, sticking up for all of society’s misfits, champ. Indeed she has a drug ‘illness’.

DMD, beating your addiction because the magistrate told you so is probably as good a time as any.

If the chance of getting your kids back isn’t enough to make you do it, what do you reckon would be?

Beating addictions can be a slow process. That means you might still be using drugs, only less. God knows, she might have been seriously cutting down.

Also, whilst her children are victims, the reason they are victims is because of the mother’s meth addiction. Throwing her back in the pokey isn’t going to remove the inner problems she’s using the meth to run away from.

It’s worth remembering that the ‘mother’ in question is not the victim here.

Cletus 3:25 pm 06 Aug 08

But having the magistrate bail you on the condition that you beat addiction is as good a wakeup call as you can have to get some help for your problem.

If she doesn’t, then she doesn’t, but the magistrate obviously prefers not to have such an addict on the loose and rightly locks her up.

It’s a win win.

Addiction isn’t something you can just beat because the magistrate told you so.

Something very Carney about this. Oh, hang on – he still keeps getting chances!
