COMMENT: It can’t be easy for McBride’s daughter

Independent Police Investigative Directorate (Ipid) head Robert McBride’s teenage daughter has accused him of assault.

McBride is being investigated for assault after his daughter claimed that he beat her and tried to strangle her last week Sunday.

702 Breakfast Show stand-in host Stephen Grootes says nobody can deny that McBride is controversial figure.

Some people love him, some people hate him. Some people hated him once and love him now, some people loved him once and hate him now.

Stephen Grootes, 702 host

It really saddens me to think that this girl, a teenager, is out there in the public. Everyone around her will know that it’s her. It’s just the way it is. You can’t keep these things a secret no matter how hard you try.
