    Australia - Former police officer charged in stabbing of wife & two children

    http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/q...-1226816224597


    HORRIFIED neighbours have told how they heard a child scream "Mum! Mum! Mum!'' as a woman and her two children were stabbed in a frenzied attack in their Carina home.

    The woman's husband and father of the children - a former police officer - will today face court charged with three counts of attempted murder.

    The mother, 39, was last night undergoing surgery for multiple stab wounds, while the children, a nine-year-old girl and a seven-year-old boy, remained in a stable condition.

    Those poor kids. Sending lots of love their way, they must have been so scared.

    My thoughts are with their mum, I really hope she pulls through.
    Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul - and sings the tunes without the words - and never stops at all.

    A FORMER Brisbane policeman used inside knowledge of the police force to time the attempted murder of his wife and two children to coincide with the busy morning shift change, investigators will allege.

    The 41-year-old man had been a police officer for years before he left the service

    Ex-policeman faces court charged over stabbing of wife and two children in Brisbane suburb of Carina

    The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, did not apply for bail today or oppose a domestic violence protection order that prevents him from contacting his family.

    His lawyer Adam Magill says the man is a former Queensland police officer who served for 18 years from the age of 18.

    Mr Magill says it has been a distressing incident.

    "Devastating circumstances - any time you've got kids involved, terrible turn of events," he said.

    Mr Magill says his client is struggling.

    "He's in a very bad way. Obviously he's starting to realise the ramifications of what's happened, the fact he's being remanded in custody, all of those things are starting to come to a head to him," he said.

    Not another one? Thank God they are all still alive. So many marriages break up...why can't they just walk away and get on with their lives instead of trying to eliminate their family? Hope they can all make a physical recovery from this but the emotional side will not be easy to fix. JMO
