Consequences are a bitch

"A teenage tagger has been shocked by the $1500 cleanup bill he faces after spray-painting 3 metres of fence in Upper Riccarton.
Police and the judge have suggested he could get his tagging mates to help pay since he was the only one caught and he is facing the whole bill.
Concrete placer Reece Dean McMillan Middleton, 18, says he has only $100 a week left after paying his rent..."
Prick would have gotten a bigger shock if I was the judge.
And flogging was a sentence option (to be received before starting reparation payments)

What's really wrong here #578

What a pack of candy-arsed crybabies the media are! The latest storm in a teacup:

"Police are investigating after a Pakistan-born taxi driver was victim to a torrent of racial abuse in Invercargill last week..."


Oh, please!

There is less media drama when a kid gets beaten to death.

National Headlines- 'Man gets called names'. Is this the best story you can find?

Try a day in the life of a cop or work in a prison if you want to here a real nasty racial tirade- but- oh, that's right- it doesn't count when it's directed at whitey...

Use kerosine, not water

"Fire crews and police attending a burning house in Whangarei also had to contend with attendees of a near-by gang party, who hindered them and tried to break into a police car last night.
A Fire Service spokesman said the fire on William Jones Dr, Otangerei was "well-involved" when crews arrived in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Police said a car was also set alight and police were "initially hindered by the actions of gang members attending a party at a nearby address"..."
Let the whole damned rat's-nest of a suburb burn. The region would be all the better for it. Orangotangeri is a cancer on Whangarei.

Other people's babies

For most- as far as I'm concerned- Jonathan Swift had the right idea- although around these parts, most would not be considered fit for dog-tucker.

Otherwise, they are slightly more interesting than a bag of sand and slightly less interesting than America's Cup racing.

Begone from my television, computer screen and newspaper!

The NZ firearms code clearly states that 'Self-defense is NOT a valid reason to possess firearms. The law does not permit the possession of firearms in anticipation that a firearm may be needed to be used in self defense.'

Yet it's OK for idiots to own pit bulls and other semi-feral mongrels for that very reason. Yet another person was munched by one today.

Now I have been around firearms for over 40 years and have NEVER seen a pistol, rifle or shotgun open up on anyone when left out of the gun safe. Never.

Never seen one leap a fence to go on a shooting spree, either.

Pit bulls, however...

Tragic loss in the Wellington earthquake

Oh, the humanity!

"Yesterday's shake has claimed a high price victim at Regional Wine and Spirits store in Wellington, a $3780 bottle of cognac smashed.
General manager Alastair Morris said he was reluctant to look under the cabinet which toppled in the quake, afraid of the high-priced victims he would find.
Underneath he found the remain of a 700ml bottle of Louis XIII de Remy Martin cognac, the priciest victim, along with a smaller bottle of the same drop value at $500..."

A law change

This country is in definite need of a change to the Noise Control laws.

Fecking stereos pounding out boom-boom jungle drums should be grounds for the death penalty!

Buy an Ipod and destroy your hearing- the rest of the world does NOT want to hear that shit.


And no merciful hangings.

I'm talking death by being lowered into a tank full of starving rats or perhaps being staked out at the low water mark.

For a first offense.

We will pay for the stupid, but not the disabled.

"Building-block towers never get very high in the Tamaseu house.
They're constructed twice a week, meticulously balanced by 12-year-old Duncan before he smashes them down.
Like his peers he's getting more physical as he becomes a young man.
It's a physicality that means he will require care for the rest of his life because he is severely autistic, has ADHD and is intellectually disabled.
It's a job his parents Paul and Larissa are fighting to be paid to do.
It makes sense they say. No-one knows how Duncan ticks like they do.
"We just want the best care for him and we believe that as parents, we are,"says Mr Tamaseu.
They have two other children, Liam, 10, and Benjamin, 2. Mrs Tamaseu says caring for Duncan is more absorbing than a fulltime job.
"It's not eight hours but 16 or more a day.
"We care for him and feed him but it is a lot of work and it affects the rest of our family, " she says.
Last November the Glen Eden couple made a submission to a Health Ministry consultation document in support of parents being paid for full time care.
The document was initiated after the 2011 Atkinson case won the right for carers of adult disabled children to be paid.
The case involved a group of eight families with disabled adult children taking the Government to the Court of Appeal via the Human Rights Review Tribunal.
The court declared that the Health Ministry's policy of not paying family carers created unjustified discrimination on the grounds of family status under the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990.
The Tamaseus believed their submission made them eligible to be paid once Duncan becomes an adult at 18.
But in May the Government announced under the 2013 budget that it would only fund 1600 family carers for the disabled as part of a $23 million policy package for the sector, making parents and spouses ineligible..."
The rest here:
And yet we are paying for people who make stupid decisions. 
Drunks and druggies who voluntarily stuff themselves up in 'accidents'. Get pissed, smash up yourself and ACC pay for you care. Or destroy what grey matter they had, also rending them unfit for shoveling shit from on place to another.
Girls who decide to breed instead of working and the feckless sperm donors that aid them.
Those who make themselves unemployable by scribbling over their faces and are more pierced than Custer's uniform.
The list goes on.
We pay for their care through our taxes.
And when they are partially held to account, as in the current round of welfare 'reforms', there are howls of outrage from the do-gooders about 'beneficiary bashing'  (as if that is a bad thing)
Yet when it is those disabled through no fault of there own- it's tough shit.
But I guess they don't make up much of a voting block...

Another 'only in Masterton'

I generally don't have more than a few picoseconds for the parking nazis, but some parking rightly deserves a fine and a good slapping with a dead fish.


The excuse that she had to park like that because the person who was parked next to this spot was also a crap parker who couldn't get between the lines is not exactly a strong defense.

'I'm from Masterton' would make a stronger case...

"Police have launched a homicide investigation after a baby boy died of significant head injuries.
The one-year-old, from Whangarei, was taken to Whangarei Hospital yesterday at 10am.
In the early afternoon he was airlifted to Auckland's Starship Hospital. He died just before 11pm..."
Bets on the offenders profile?
What?- no takers?

"Police have named the dead baby at the centre of a homicide inquiry as Atreyu Taylor-Matene..."

This was alway going to end badly

"Hospital and ambulance officials have raised concerns after a dance party where thousands of revellers, many intoxicated, danced on polished concrete floors slippery with paint.
Around 5000 people attended the party at Dunedin's Forsyth Barr stadium which was promoted as an official world record attempt for the title of world's largest paint fight.
St John said it treated around 35 people at the Illuminate Paint Party on Wednesday night, sending 11 to hospital by ambulance.
"Nobody that went to hospital was sober," St John Dunedin operations team manager Doug Third said.
Some of those at the event were grossly intoxicated and "and not able to look after their own airways," he said.
Also "the polished concrete floor became extremely slippery with the paint on it"..."
I'm thinking you must need to fail an intelligence test to get into university these days...

I'm getting a mixed message here

"An Invercargill High Court judge has ruled in favour of a Maniototo drunk driver seeking to escape jail time for his fifth offence.
Justice Christian Whata has overturned a sentence of seven months jail for farmer Allan James Carran from Otago rural township Ranfurly, reducing the sentence to four months home detention.
Police caught Carran, 47,  with a breath alcohol reading of more than three times the legal limit, 1266 micrograms per litre of breath while he was driving to Otautau to pick up his wife around lunchtime on Sunday, March 19 this year.
Carran had previously been caught drunk driving on 1985, 1988, 1993, and 2003..."
One moment I'm being told that DIC is a very serious offense. Based on the enormous amounts of taxpayers money spent enforcing it, you could almost believe this to be true.
But then you look at the sentences handed down.
The only real punishment is when the driver loses his job over the loss of a license- that is the only time there are any real consequences...

Yet another example

"Thousands of parking tickets issued by Hutt City Council may be invalid, and the money raked in by fines may have to be refunded.
The council has acknowledged there may be a problem, and its chief executive Tony Stallinger said "it's going to be a major inconvenience if that's the case".
A loophole in the council's bylaws has been uncovered by Al O'Connor, a legal researcher and master's student at Victoria University, who stumbled on the matter after he was ticketed for parking longer than two hours near his Seaview office.
"It's a newly created time-restricted area, and I took it on myself to check the lawfulness of it - and uncovered a massive problem."
Land transport regulations state that local authorities must pass a bylaw authorising the penalties for parking infringements.
Hutt City Council's bylaw provided for parking meters, coupon parking, resident parking and no-stopping areas, but it made no provision for time-restricted parking, he said..."
Yet ANOTHER example of petty 'officials' thinking they are a law unto themselves.

Part of what is wrong here

"...During the 20 years to 2000 the number of students enrolled in the country's universities more than tripled to 139,000.
But a university education is not the only path to success, a point graphically made by Education Minister Hekia Parata last weekend when she pointed out that New Zealand was in danger of experiencing a shortage of skilled tradespeople because so much focus was being put on channelling students into university and academic pathways.
"The backbone of New Zealand has been built on tradespeople, who then go into business and become our middle-class citizens," she said after delivering a speech to an Independent Schools of New Zealand conference.
In the rush to acquire academic qualifications New Zealanders have forgotten the value of other occupations. But for some, wiring and plumbing buildings not only provides greater satisfaction than shuffling paper, it also proves more rewarding..."
We are approaching a day when the BA, MA and PhD types will be calling for a plumber or a sparkie- and waiting for them to come from the workshop- in Australia.

"...Labour's Wimmin's Division is proposing that the party introduce quotas in some of its keenly contested electorates so that only women can be selected as candidates. 
It's proposing a target of 45 per cent women in caucus in 2014 and 50 per cent in 2017 - despite the fact that already 41 per cent of its caucus are female. 
The plan is stupid on so many levels it's difficult to know where to start. But here goes: ..."

I think this is a great move! Just the thing to push liarbour into total obscurity.
Then we only have one other mainstream fuckwit socialist party to contend with.

It's a freakin' kids toy- usually.

"In her 54 years, the leggy blonde that is Barbie has inspired love,controversy and even imitation (from the slightly odd this to the just plain disturbing this).
But an artist from Pittsburgh, Pennyslvania suggests that we should be focusing on a revision of the classic Mattel doll.
Nickolay Lamm has recreated a typical blonde Barbie, but at the average proportions of a 19-year-old American woman (he took the measurements from the Centre for Disease Control)..."
She was probably designed to use less plastic in the mold.
Now you are going to get people from San Francisco suing because the new revised barbie gets lodged internally!

Better off in a Victorian orphanage

"The Lower Hutt parents who seriously neglected their young children want to get them back.
A 25-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman were today sentenced in the Wellington District Court on four counts each of neglect.
They had pleaded guilty to not providing medical care, food and nutrition for the children, aged 4, 3, 2 years, and 7 months, who were found dirty and malnourished with head lice infestations and open scabies wounds in January.
The man was sentenced to six months community detention, 18 months intensive supervision and 80 hours of community work.
The woman was sentenced to 18 months intensive supervision and 160 hours of community work.
Permanent name suppression was granted to both parents to protect the identity of their children, who are still in state care..."
Not only should they never see their children again, but they should both be permanently and irreversibly sterilized. AFTER serving a lengthy prison term at hard labour.
But no, after that slap on the wrist with a wet bus ticket, they will no doubt get their kids back. To continue the irreversible damage...
