Domestic Violence: Tara Brown’s mother speaks out after Camp Hill murder

The mother of murder victim Tara Brown has demanded harsher laws to combat domestic violence offenders after revealing how the death of Hannah Clarke affected her.

THE mother of murdered woman Tara Brown has spoken publicly about how the death of Hannah Clarke “brought it all back” years after her daughter’s brutal killing.

Natalie Hinton’s daughter Tara was just 24 when she was run off the road and beaten to death by her estranged partner, who was the father of her child, in a Molendinar street in 2015.

Today Ms Hinton spoke out about the death of Camp Hill mum Hannah Clarke, who died along with her three children and former partner after he set all five alight inside their car.

“It brought it all back. It was very similar to Tara’s case,” she said.

“Because it was once again a most public display of domestic violence murder.

“Don’t get me wrong, every domestic violence murder brings it flooding back for me, but because Hannah’s was so similar in circumstances it was a big hit last week.

“We need a new law that will stop these men.”

Her comments came as the Tara Brown Foundation announced its backing for new LNP measures that would see $2.5 million go to domestic violence support.

The new measures are aimed at increasing the maximum penalty for strangulation laws to 14 years jail, overhauling the existing domestic violence legal system and offering extra funding to frontline domestic violence services.

LNP health spokesperson Ros Bates said it was an issue she was passionate about.

“As a survivor of domestic violence myself, I am sick to death of seeing people murdered here in Queensland,” she said.

“I’ve said it before and I’ve said it again, we need to get tough and we need to lock these bastards away so that they will never hurt another woman or a child.”

When are women going to be more than second class citizens? Nothing’s changed regarding domestic violence in 100 years - only difference is now we hear about it but there’s still nothing being done whilst men rule the world

We were all horrified at the tragic senseless death of Tara Brown at the hands of a dv perpetrator that killed. 3 years later we are all horrified all over again for Hannah Clarke and her children. Time for action now not in 3 years time. Any sign of dv behaviour slap a tracker device on them. No 35 strikes you are out. Swift action every time. If they are good men they will understand. If they are potential killers watch them protest. They will protest because someone else will have the upper hand.

Lip service - "Every time I read an article about a woman being killed at the hands of someone she once loved, I sit and hold that heavy thought: will this be how my story ends too? When will I be able to trust that there will be a legal system in this country that will adequately protect my son and I if we were in danger? There is so much injustice weaved into a system that suggests custody should be split between parents, even if there is a history of violence. All it takes is a single incident alone with a child to have devastating consequences. Women should not have to live in fear for their and their children's lives every day. Our laws need to change and reflect the reality that we are most unsafe in our own homes, and with those who we thought once loved us. Until then, we have to build a life of illusion and play a game, keeping perpetrators happy, and de-escalating situations every day. And I am exhausted. I am exhausted of seeing a woman die every week. I am exhausted of being the only one protecting my son and I. Solidarity to every woman in this situation. May we rise somehow tomorrow. May this not he how our story ends also. What you don't realise is #WeAreHannahClarke. It isn't over. We are not ok. We are not safe. There are so many of us who are still living the torture she endured: the constant fear, the instability, the protection of ourselves and our children from a monster we know so well. We are completely alone in this fight. There is no system or structure we can trust to save and support us. There is no other option but to simply endure each day, and hope our fate does not end the same. Be with us. Sit with us. Listen to us. Weep with us. We are not safe. We are not ok. When we left, it wasn't over. When we left, the worst began. Hear our story, please. And let us be free. Give us our power to be free. We have done all we can alone. But alone we cannot change a system that does not value our lives as much as mens freedom. In the meantime, we wait. We survive. We continue. He hasn't broken us yet, though he has tried to in every way. We are strength, resilience, wisdom and courage. We are #HannahClarke"

If any politician could tell me where dv funding is allocated that be great. After the events of the last few weeks... police make a referral to ‘child connect’ as they do not have time to follow up on dv cases. Child connect sends a text message saying please contact them. When I contact them the lady says they have to respond with a text within 48 hours and what is it that I want... kind of strange as I don’t know what they offer. The lady keeps asking how they can help me and what support do I want... eventually she says I will send you some brochures in the mail of parenting courses in the area and I should contact CADA - Caboolture area domestic violence service for further information she will now close my case. I ring cada and I’m told I can go to counselling but the lady is away till March and if the children want counselling it’s a 2 month wait at least. I then have to go to the doctors 3 times to get a health care plan for me and my children and a referral to a psychologist- no appointments for 2 months. I then get an appointment with Cada for their safety at home program. They can help with installing some security features. I am deemed high risk after doing a safety plan questionnaire- but in the same breath I am told that funding is very limited and this month there is no chance of any help, come back in March and we can try again. Off my own back I booked a meeting with the head honcho of Caboolture police. We stay there for 1.5 hours and I come away shaking my head... he gave me the same bullshit ‘police are human’ they sometimes don’t get it right, blah blah blah and basically validated that it’s ok for my ex partner to hurt me as I shouldn’t of gone to his house.... I then today just got a call from the SAME woman at child connect saying police made another referral so she had to contact me, but since we already spoke and she sent the brochures out she will close my case. I also got a call from PRADO which is apparently the police specialist DV unit who told me I should contact CADA as they have a great safety at home service! Will add, when I was at the hospital the social worker had gone home sick.... I also rang Centrelink who told me there is only an emergency payment for DV if you physically move home due to violence. Funny as when I did flee my original home on separation Centrelink told me there wasn’t anything available.

Onya Ros!

The long term PTSD suffering for survivors of DV is almost unbearable when murders like this happen. The absolute fear of being able to feel what all the women murdered would have been feeling is so triggering to survivors. Nobody could ever take away any family members pain when they've lost a loved one to this type of violent murder but we must be careful to not ever take away what this does to women survivors of serious DV. I have suffered for 10+ years with PTSD from nearly losing my life at the hands of my ex who's now dead on many occasions with heavy police involvement (didn't protect me at all I got out of it on my own & moved) & I'm currently in another DV cycle with the father of my children with DVOs breached & every form of abuse & I'm at breaking point with these men. I want them to feel our wrath we must do so much more. There's a saying 'NOTHING ABOUT US WITHOUT US' survivors voices are absolutely vital to stop more brutal murders of our women & beautiful innocent babies.
