‘Why me?’

The Gympie Times - - NEWS -

A GYMPIE re­gion man yes­ter­day asked Gympie Mag­is­trates Court why he was al­ways the one taken away by the po­lice for do­mes­tic vi­o­lence, even when he or the chil­dren were be­ing abused. The man pleaded guilty to slap­ping his wife and ac­ci­den­tally kick­ing a hole in a wall on two Oc­to­ber dates, say­ing he had been driven to it by his wife’s abuse and al­co­holism. Mag­is­trate John Parker banned him from fur­ther con­tact with the woman and fined him $600, with “no con­vic­tion recorded this time”.
