Spinifex pigeon (Geophaps plumifera s.sp ferruguinea), sunning itself on a rock. Here in the Pilbara, rocks are a common place to find them early or late in the day.

Policeman Vikram Gopinath has been jailed after admitting he groomed a 16-year-old girl for sex using social media. Picture: Ellen Smith

He has been jailed for trying to groom a vulnerable teenage girl for sex using explicit messages and photos of himself.

Vikram Gopinath, 29, will spend 10 months behind bars after being sentenced in the County Court on Monday when it was revealed he told her to lie and threatened to commit suicide if she exposed him.

 

NSW rates waived as part of government Drought Relief Package

That will be a relief to many I imagine.

 

 

A new biography of French President Emmanuel Macron has revealed his parents shock when they discovered their 16-year-old son was having an affair with his 40 year old teacher.

Interesting as he was the same age as the girl in the story about the policeman Vikram Gopinath above and his teacher wasn't jailed. Less of an age difference too.
