Babies allegedly found wrapped up in boot of car during traffic stop

A grandfather has been fined after police allegedly found his two baby grandchildren wrapped up and stuffed in the boot of his car during a vehicle stop in Western Australia.

Police say the Nissan X-trail was heading towards Morawa on the Perenjori-Three Springs Road in the state’s Mid West when it was stopped near the Boundary Road turn-off around 11pm on Friday.

Two girls aged under 18 months were allegedly found wrapped up in blankets next to shopping bags in the boot.

Who cares that he hit a fine ( although it should be more) who cares about the points ( should be loss of licence) the big question is have the children been taken off them, I sure as hell hope so.

What happened to the CHILD ABUSE CHARGES, or don’t they come into the scenario, and are the children still with those people, how can you break such mind sets if you don’t act.

Unbelievable!!! Only fined and points demerits. In the real world with real consequences, these children would be taken from their care and put into a safe environment and the twits charged with every offence against a child available.

Good to see the old legal system in action. Pathetic! If the people who are supposed to keep these children safe and well do this, what else are they doing to endanger them?

I seriously hope these cruel and obviously child abusing people will be charged with reckless endangerment of a minor or some such serious charge and be reported immeadetly to FACS Those poor bubbas could have died

Karen

Is that it? What rights do those babies have? Are their lives not worth more than a simple slap on the wrist? Haw appealing is our legal system… Take those poor children away from them,there are people out there who will treasure their precious lives!

Sue

You can not be serious! They all should have the book thrown at them ! People out there who are dying to have kids and can’t and yet parasites like this get to keep theirs! If they have done this once and been caught imagine how much else they are doing to those poor kids and not been caught !!

Julie

Are you kidding me???? $600 fine!!!!!!!! Lock all four of them up, throw away the key and get those little girls to someone who will love them.

And the children were not removed?

Sara

What were only eight points taken off this man? He should’ve had his licence taken off him for life!! What a joke

Anna stuart
Guest

Some people do not deserve to have children in their lives when they do this to them! charges should have been higher than what the grandfather got! charges all round for all that were in the vehicle.

Marg

Why weren’t theses poor Kids taken of them !!!!

Vera bent

This surely is not the only punishment these people received. The children should be taken from them and never allowed in their lives again. The law is definately an ass if this is considered sufficient punishment, crazy….

Tracy

Im sorry, he was what? They stuffed two babies into a boot and drove around with them in there and he only got fined $600 and eight points. Wtf. If my son was just sitting in the back seat of my car with his car seat I would get at least a $300 and a few points. So to the law, putting babies in a boot of a car is nearly equivalent to having a child not in a care seat, or even speeding or drink driving. I mean they’re all dangerous but come on, putting a baby into a… Read more »

Please say these children were removed from the so called care of the 4 adults. These people should have been charged with child endangerment and neglect

Vicki Degen

There should be a lot more charges – this is ridiculous !!

Kathleen

Absolutely disgraceful! Lock them all up and throw away the keys….

Dianne Walters

And sent to jail for at least 10 years and the children were removed from this family into a safe environment.

Pam King

Is that all he got, they should have had the children taken away from them…..or maybe they couldn’t do that because they were indigenous people…..the driver should have received more than that….

Jacquie Yeo

YOU ARE KIDDING ME. Why were the Grandparents and Parents not throwen into jailed.To my way of thinking this would be classed as Attempted Murder.It seems like the Grandfather only got a slap on the wrist for this CRIME.Were there Medical checks done on these little babies? These four people are not fit to have these little people in their lives.

The nanny state again. It was probably only for a short ride and no cruelty involved!

Laurina

If you seriously think that’s ok…You need urgent Help yourself!

Ron

He should have been jailed and the others fined

Sheree Jones

They should be striped of their freedom not points off their license…another injustice!!!

ROZANNE WINTER

These people should be fined an no logger allowed to travel with young children…perish the though had someone rear ended them…not to mention the inhaling the exhaust fumes that could well have been in the boot of the vehicle…and shame on those adults inside the car….why did they not have he babies with them inside the vehicle??? Truly beggars belief!!

Leanne Campbell

I believe the parents should have been fined too – actually thinking about it more – they should all have been charged & faced the court system & DOCs should have been called to take the girls & to find the care they need (whether that be with other family members not involved or strangers depends on DOCs investigations
