Michael, a 13-year-old boy, was taken from his mother and placed into the care of Child, Youth, and Family (CYF) where he spent about 5 months. Eventually, he was returned to his mother, but he suffered from nightmares. That isn’t the only thing that he brought with him. Apparently, another child at a Porirua home tattooed a swastika on his back. Michael said that he thought the tattoo was temporary and that it was going to be a cross “like jesus died on”. A Child, Youth, and Family spokeswoman called the incident "unfortunate" and inappropriate "for young people of that age to tattoo each other". Meanwhile, Michael’s mother wants answers. She is hoping to get answers from the Child, Youth and Family regarding the treatment of her son while in their care as well as why they took him from her in the first place. Michael is the first out of 10 to receive their laser removal treatments today, compliments of the CYF. Do you think the conditions of CYF is just as bad as the homes they take these children from?

CYF is well known for putting their policies ahead of the needs of people under their care. This happened about half an hour from where I live, and I can't say I'm surprised.

Time is on my side she said
He may be on your side I said, but it makes no difference in the end -
He's coming after you my friend.
