What ARE they thinking at sentencing?

"The sentence of eight years and nine months' prison handed to the killer of police officer Derek Wootton was met with disbelief by his family today..."

Yes, they don't have that on their own!

Five years non-parole for killing a police officer in the line of duty- disgusting- there should be a 'thirty' in front of that number. I say that making allowances for soft-cock NZ sentencing.

In my view he should be visiting the chaplain right now while the scaffold is being erected.

This sentence is a real gob in the eye for the family and all police officers!

Real Policing

Is only really effective with the full cooperation and support of the citizens the police serve.

Here is where police and citizens work actively together.

Here in NZ it's the other way around. Citizens are actively discouraged from doing what should be a duty and a virtue- taking an active role in fighting *real* crime.

(That's crime with actual victims- not motorists 5km over the speed limit on an empty road)

A message to Saint Obama

Fuck you asshorle!
I got real nucrear bombs now!

What the MSM DON"T tell you

"An armed "vigilante" group has been ordered off the streets of Martinborough after a violent clash with local youths.

The self-appointed community night patrol is understood to comprise many local business owners including one dubbed the sheriff of Martinborough and was formed after a spate of burglaries in the small Wairarapa town.

Sources say the group carry weapons, though its members deny they are acting outside the law.

They patrol the small Wairarapa town from 10pm till dawn in cars, by foot and on bicycles, taking registration numbers and watching for suspect behaviour.

The group was shut down by police and disbanded in consultation with its members following an incident early on Thursday morning in which a shot was fired during a clash between night patrol members and local youths..."

Now they don't bother to mention that this was 30 young thugs against 2 'vigilantes'.

This is in a town that has ONE policeman, with the nearest backup at least 15 minutes away. Backup that could deal with a mob of thirty is 45 minutes away- asuming they are not already tied up.

We owe these 'vigilantes' a debt of gratitude- they are actually dealing with a problem the police can't/won't touch.

It's all very well talking about communities taking ownership of problems about town, but when they actually do something instead of beating their gums- the MSM and the judiciary put the boot in, like the cowards they are.

We are fed up with the 'leave it to us' crap from the police. We don't want to let crims have their way and wait for a police note to pass to the insurance company!


Now the local member of the dick-licking NZ Council for Civil Liberties is passing the blame to all but the young criminals that started the problem. Of course it is all race related!

Update 2:

Another good piece of commentary from a local here:

Now watch the copycats

"A 23-year-old Auckland mother who lost 45kg in eight months by drinking nothing but energy drink Red Bull says she has ongoing health problems because of the diet.

Brooke Robertson told the Herald on Sunday she shrank from 105kg to 60kg drinking nothing but 10 to 14 cans a day, often accompanying them with nothing more than a handful of dry Honey Puffs..."

OK, wait for all the copycat twits who will try to copy this despite the clear warning:

"...Ms Robertson said she managed to keep her addiction secret from family and friends, and did not recover from it until after a two-week stay in hospital following a minor heart attack.

"I managed to wean myself off it by being in hospital for that long but I had severe withdrawals – sweating, nausea, shaking. It was an addiction. The doctors stated that..."

Anything but a bit of willpower and discipline!

Whats' a heart attack if you look pretty!

Drink driving and recidivism in general

"The Dominion Post reported police figures showed that nearly 36,000 drink-driving offences were recorded last year the highest on record. The number has been increasing steadily since 2002, when just under 23,500 offences were recorded..."

So I think we can call the megabucks spent on ad campaigns a failure and to some degree the attempts at policing this problem we have.

I say 'WE' because when some pissed twat smashes into you, it becomes very much YOUR problem. I got hit at 0730 on a Sunday morning, so it's not just a late night problem either.

The problem is the small percentage of the population that just couldn't give a shit- about anything other than gratifying whatever urge hits the bit of gristle that failed to evolve into a brain.

The 'What to do' is the hard part. Hard in that there has to be a paradigm shift in dealing with recidivist criminals.

A case we have heard of so many times is that of the serial drink-driving offender who pushed his luck once too often- like the one here. After four offenses and being indefinetly banned from driving, he proved he HAD LEARNT NOTHING.

So these types- along with other recidivists- need to be removed from society. WE need to be protected from them.

I'm suggesting a radical change in the prison model for this type of offender. Along with the non-violent offenders they are incarcerated in a closed community. They live a 19th century type agricultural existence and it's work or starve.

They don't come out.

"A gang fight involving 11 prisoners broke out at Hawke's Bay Prison today.

The fight lasted just over a minute and appeared to have been an incident between the Mongrel Mob and Black Power, Hawke's Bay Prison manager George Massingham said.

It was not known what started the fight, which started just after prisoners were unlocked for the day, Mr Massingham said.

None of the prisoners was seriously injured but some received cuts and bruises..."

So nobody is dead or maimed?

I guess they just aren't very good at fighting.

Let's put them in a sports arena and kit them out with axes, spears, clubs and swords.

Will they get all excited at the prospect or just shit their pants?

Bring back the Colloseum- and seeing as these drug- fueled heros can't mix it up well enough for the circus- bring on the professional gladiators who can carve them up for our viewing pleasure!

Not all historic sites seem of value

"Deerstalkers are once again moving to save historic Sayers Hut in the Tararua Ranges, this time from itself.

Back in 2000 a determined deposition of hunters rallied against Department of Conservation plans to get rid of the hut they said failed "safety and sanitary standards".

DOC relented after accepting that the century-old hut was historic and maintained by the hunters themselves..."

Now if this was a pre-European midden, DOC would be falling over themselves to preserve it!

Already they have destroyed dozens, if not hundreds of historic huts throughout New Zealand. The old shanties built by trampers and hunters (at their own expense) have been systematically demolished, to be replaced with souless prefabs.

Can't have overseas tourists staying in a nasty, unsanitary hut- so we have to pay for nice new ones for them. While DOC smash up our heritage.

Sure, some of these huts were rough as guts, but that was part of the deal- before those heading into the hills became of bunch of high-fashion, lycra-clad, wanker tramper landspeed record seekers incapable of lighting a fire, who crap into plastic bags!

Court reforms

The latest talk is about raising the threshold for jury trials.

I would add to that and suggest that we go to professional jurors. There is much to the line that a jury consists of twelve people too stupid to find a good excuse not to be there- or are not worth enough to an employer for him to find one!

Also, we need to get rid of this legal aid/welfare for lawyers nonsense and move to a public defenders office with salaried lawyers.

Another restructuring I suggest is to build courts next to prisons. The time (T=$) taken to transport remand prisoners to and fro for their weekly hearings is phenominal.

Interesting movie

Take a peek at the new Peter Jackson trailer here

Doing what these wankers do best

Wasting OUR money!

Even now that they has been consigned to back of the class, these wanker still continue to do what they do best- squander OUR tax money with this pointless and futile filibustering.

It's a petty, spiteful and a waste of time- and as we know T=$ . A foumula Liarbore have never understood- nor ever will.

In any real world workplace, arsing about like this would not be tolerated.

Why should wasting our money be tolerated?

Frightful Friday Footwear Futility

Tooth removal, colonoscopy and cutting out ingrown toenails.

All of the above are better options than spending an afternoon with a woman looking for a pair of shoes!

For me, it is a dull, mundane task- find something that fits well, is in my price range and doesn't look like a shoe that Ronald McDonald would wear.

For her- it's a whole life-altering experience.

Which has not resulted in anything being purchased as 'nothing was quite right' Did she really expect to find anything other than cheap plastic tat and FMB's- in Masterton!

That's the only upside of the whole friggin' day for me!

"National MP Melissa Lee has issued an unreserved apology for saying a new motorway could stop South Auckland criminals committing crime in Mount Albert.

Prime Minister John Key has criticised the remark as silly but retains confidence in the first-term list MP..."

What exactly was the big frickin' deal?


I wouldn't call the remark 'silly'

Saying that the public would be scared to approach an armed policeman- Now THAT is silly!

No wonder so many politicans can only spout fluff with zero content. They have all brought into the PC nonsence of being scared to offend anybody!

If stating a hard fact is having ones foot in ones mouth- then we need more of this. I wish we had a few more plain-speaking types running the show.

Fact is- a hell of a lot of Aucklanders would like to see the bottom-dwellers winding up as roadkill!

The story is a UK one, but this case could well be in NZ.

I would like to rip her ovaries out with a boathook!

And the sperm donor needs castrating with a pair of vice-grips!

While I'm never a fan of new government appointments, at least I have the consolation of the fact that Liarbore will be even less happy about her!

"Christine Rankin says she is "really surprised" by the reaction to her controversial appointment as a Families Commissioner..."

I can't say I'm suprised- the left hate her!

As they do everyone who doesn't march to the tuner of 'The Red Flag'

"...Ms Rankin said she stood by her criticism of the anti-smacking bill. She said parents were unnecessarily investigated and it created fear in the community.

"To me it was silly legislation in the first place; we've got a major child abuse problem. We don't need a smokescreen that takes us down the wrong road."

She did not regret her previous comments - she said Labour made mileage out of one conference while she had made major savings at the department, Miss Clark did not have children and Maori did need to face child abuse issues.

Gun control will stop violent crime[Insert Tui ad here]


National showing it's Pinko Backbone

"Prime Minister John Key says he would be reluctant to see police carry guns all the time because it would raise a barrier between them and the public.

The Napier siege has reignited the issue and Mr Key said at his post-cabinet press conference today it was a legitimate debate.

Arming the police would create substantial risks, he said, citing international evidence that the weapons were often used against the police themselves.

"And the weapons need to be loaded at all times, there's likely to be a psychological barrier between the police and the public," he said..."


I'm sure he (as are most of us) reluctant to see armed police- but I would be more reluctant to see more dead cops, killed by ARMED criminals. These are the times we are living in.

I firmly believe that the (law-abiding) public would draw comfort from the sight of policemen armed and able to come to their defense immediately. Not in an hours time when the firearms have been issued. Ask the family of any dead shopkeeper.

Now- as for the 'snatched weapon' scenario- there are holsters specifically designed to minimise this threat.

I sure our political masters are comforted by the presence of the armed diplomatic security police who keep them safe...

Help needed urgently!

Stuff have a survey up:

Do you think gun laws should be tightened after the Napier siege?

Yes - there are too many guns in NZ

No - it had nothing to do with gun laws

I would urge all those who don't want the gun-grabbers to have more ammo to get over there NOW and vote!

Register criminals, not firearms

The knee-jerk cry of yet more firearms control from the gibbering talkback callers was quite predictable. They fail to realise the big bad military style firearms are already required to be registered.

Lets look at the registration of a far greater killer- THE CAR. Has registration prevented cars from being:
  • Driven under the influence
  • Stolen
  • Used as weapons
  • Used to commit suicide
  • Used to commit crimes
  • Used by unlicensed drivers

That would have to be a resounding NO to all of the above.

Same goes for firearms. Like with nukes, pandora's box has been opened and you can't make them go away.

However, I suspect our masters will try to erode our freedoms once again. Perhaps they might pause and consider registering all those with three or more criminal convictions and the career indigent.

They would have to report to police when they change address, be subject to random visits to ensure they live where they are meant to, have no illegal substances, stolen property or other illicit items in their possession and have to carry compulsory ID when out in public. Their DNA is added to the police database.

It's a thought...

Why risk another life?

There seems to be lot of folks saying-"Why risk another life to recover a police officer already shot, who is almost certainly dead?"

They may be surprised to know that there is a very good reason.

Because EVERY police officer or soldier NEEDS to KNOW that EVERY EFFORT POSSIBLE will be made to rescue him- or in the worst case- bring his body back to his family.

THAT is why soldiers die trying to bring in another wounded soldier. They know damned well that the guy out there screaming and bleeding out could be THEM next!


And it looks like there were some pretty amazing deeds done rescuing the wounded and dead. I need to make it crystal clear I did not doubt that the men on the ground would try. Any aspersions were cast on their 'leadership' at a political level. The same leadership that sends them into these situations woefully unprepared.

A lesson worth repeating

It seems time to post an old favorite of mine:


By LTC(RET) Dave Grossman, RANGER,
Ph.D., author of “On Killing.”

Honor never grows old, and honor rejoices the heart of age. It does so because honor is, finally, about defending those noble and worthy things that deserve defending, even if it comes at a high cost. In our time, that may mean social disapproval, public scorn, hardship, persecution, or as always, even death itself. The question remains: What is worth defending? What is worth dying for? What is worth living for? - William J. Bennett - in a lecture to the United States Naval Academy November 24, 1997

One Vietnam veteran, an old retired colonel, once said this to me: “Most of the people in our society are sheep. They are kind, gentle, productive creatures who can only hurt one another by accident.” This is true. Remember, the murder rate is six per 100,000 per year, and the aggravated assault rate is four per 1,000 per year. What this means is that the vast majority of Americans are not inclined to hurt one another.

Some estimates say that two million Americans are victims of violent crimes every year, a tragic, staggering number, perhaps an all-time record rate of violent crime. But there are almost 300 million Americans, which means that the odds of being a victim of violent crime is considerably less than one in a hundred on any given year. Furthermore, since many violent crimes are committed by repeat offenders, the actual number of violent citizens is considerably less than two million.

Thus there is a paradox, and we must grasp both ends of the situation: We may well be in the most violent times in history, but violence is still remarkably rare. This is because most citizens are kind, decent people who are not capable of hurting each other, except by accident or under extreme provocation. They are sheep.

I mean nothing negative by calling them sheep. To me, it is like the pretty, blue robin’s egg. Inside it is soft and gooey but someday it will grow into something wonderful. But the egg cannot survive without its hard blue shell.

Police officers, soldiers, and other warriors are like that shell, and someday the civilization they protect will grow into something wonderful. For now, though, they need warriors to protect them from the predators.

“Then there are the wolves,” the old war veteran said, “and the wolves feed on the sheep without mercy.” Do you believe there are wolves out there who will feed on the flock without mercy? You better believe it. There are evil men in this world and they are capable of evil deeds. The moment you forget that or pretend it is not so, you become a sheep. There is no safety in denial.

“Then there are sheepdogs,” he went on, “and I’m a sheepdog. I live to protect the flock and confront the wolf.”

If you have no capacity for violence then you are a healthy productive citizen, a sheep. If you have a capacity for violence and no empathy for your fellow citizens, then you have defined an aggressive sociopath, a wolf.

But what if you have a capacity for violence, and a deep love for your fellow citizens? What do you have then? A sheepdog, a warrior, someone who is walking the hero’s path. Someone who can walk into the heart of darkness, into the universal human phobia, and walk out unscathed

Let me expand on this old soldier’s excellent model of the sheep, wolves, and sheepdogs. We know that the sheep live in denial, that is what makes them sheep. They do not want to believe that there is evil in the world. They can accept the fact that fires can happen, which is why they want fire extinguishers, fire sprinklers, fire alarms and fire exits throughout their kids’ schools.

But many of them are outraged at the idea of putting an armed police officer in their kid’s school. Our children are thousands of times more likely to be killed or seriously injured by school violence than fire, but the sheep’s only response to the possibility of violence is denial. The idea of someone coming to kill or harm their child is just too hard, and so they chose the path of denial.

The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, can not and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheep dog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed. The world cannot work any other way, at least not in a representative democracy or a republic such as ours.

Still, the sheepdog disturbs the sheep. He is a constant reminder that there are wolves in the land. They would prefer that he didn’t tell them where to go, or give them traffic tickets, or stand at the ready in our airports, in camouflage fatigues, holding an M-16. The sheep would much rather have the sheepdog cash in his fangs, spray paint himself white, and go, “Baa.” Until the wolf shows up. Then the entire flock tries desperately to hide behind one lonely sheepdog.

The students, the victims, at Columbine High School were big, tough high school students, and under ordinary circumstances they would not have had the time of day for a police officer. They were not bad kids; they just had nothing to say to a cop. When the school was under attack, however, and SWAT teams were clearing the rooms and hallways, the officers had to physically peel those clinging, sobbing kids off of them. This is how the little lambs feel about their sheepdog when the wolf is at the door.

Look at what happened after September 11, 2001 when the wolf pounded hard on the door. Remember how America, more than ever before, felt differently about their law enforcement officers and military personnel? Remember how many times you heard the word hero?

Understand that there is nothing morally superior about being a sheepdog; it is just what you choose to be. Also understand that a sheepdog is a funny critter: He is always sniffing around out on the perimeter, checking the breeze, barking at things that go bump in the night, and yearning for a righteous battle. That is, the young sheepdogs yearn for a righteous battle. The old sheepdogs are a little older and wiser, but they move to the sound of the guns when needed, right along with the young ones.

Here is how the sheep and the sheepdog think differently. The sheep pretend the wolf will never come, but the sheepdog lives for that day. After the attacks on September 11, 2001, most of the sheep, that is, most citizens in America said, “Thank God I wasn’t on one of those planes.” The sheepdogs, the warriors, said, “Dear God, I wish I could have been on one of those planes. Maybe I could have made a difference.” When you are truly transformed into a warrior and have truly invested yourself into warriorhood, you want to be there. You want to be able to make a difference.

There is nothing morally superior about the sheepdog, the warrior, but he does have one real advantage. Only one. And that is that he is able to survive and thrive in an environment that destroys 98 percent of the population.

There was research conducted a few years ago with individuals convicted of violent crimes. These cons were in prison for serious, predatory crimes of violence: assaults, murders and killing law enforcement officers. The vast majority said that they specifically targeted victims by body language: Slumped walk, passive behavior and lack of awareness. They chose their victims like big cats do in Africa, when they select one out of the herd that is least able to protect itself.

Some people may be destined to be sheep and others might be genetically primed to be wolves or sheepdogs. But I believe that most people can choose which one they want to be, and I’m proud to say that more and more Americans are choosing to become sheepdogs.

Seven months after the attack on September 11, 2001, Todd Beamer was honored in his hometown of Cranbury, New Jersey. Todd, as you recall, was the man on Flight 93 over Pennsylvania who called on his cell phone to alert an operator from United Airlines about the hijacking. When he learned of the other three passenger planes that had been used as weapons, Todd dropped his phone and uttered the words, “Let’s roll,” which authorities believe was a signal to the other passengers to confront the terrorist hijackers. In one hour, a transformation occurred among the passengers - athletes, business people and parents. — from sheep to sheepdogs and together they fought the wolves, ultimately saving an unknown number of lives on the ground.

There is no safety for honest men except by believing all possible evil of evil men. - Edmund Burke

Here is the point I like to emphasize, especially to the thousands of police officers and soldiers I speak to each year. In nature the sheep, real sheep, are born as sheep. Sheepdogs are born that way, and so are wolves. They didn’t have a choice. But you are not a critter. As a human being, you can be whatever you want to be. It is a conscious, moral decision.

If you want to be a sheep, then you can be a sheep and that is okay, but you must understand the price you pay. When the wolf comes, you and your loved ones are going to die if there is not a sheepdog there to protect you. If you want to be a wolf, you can be one, but the sheepdogs are going to hunt you down and you will never have rest, safety, trust or love. But if you want to be a sheepdog and walk the warrior’s path, then you must make a conscious and moral decision every day to dedicate, equip and prepare yourself to thrive in that toxic, corrosive moment when the wolf comes knocking at the door.

For example, many officers carry their weapons in church. They are well concealed in ankle holsters, shoulder holsters or inside-the-belt holsters tucked into the small of their backs. Anytime you go to some form of religious service, there is a very good chance that a police officer in your congregation is carrying. You will never know if there is such an individual in your place of worship, until the wolf appears to massacre you and your loved ones.

I was training a group of police officers in Texas, and during the break, one officer asked his friend if he carried his weapon in church. The other cop replied, “I will never be caught without my gun in church.” I asked why he felt so strongly about this, and he told me about a cop he knew who was at a church massacre in Ft. Worth, Texas in 1999. In that incident, a mentally deranged individual came into the church and opened fire, gunning down fourteen people. He said that officer believed he could have saved every life that day if he had been carrying his gun. His own son was shot, and all he could do was throw himself on the boy’s body and wait to die. That cop looked me in the eye and said, “Do you have any idea how hard it would be to live with yourself after that?”

Some individuals would be horrified if they knew this police officer was carrying a weapon in church. They might call him paranoid and would probably scorn him. Yet these same individuals would be enraged and would call for “heads to roll” if they found out that the airbags in their cars were defective, or that the fire extinguisher and fire sprinklers in their kids’ school did not work. They can accept the fact that fires and traffic accidents can happen and that there must be safeguards against them.

Their only response to the wolf, though, is denial, and all too often their response to the sheepdog is scorn and disdain. But the sheepdog quietly asks himself, “Do you have any idea how hard it would be to live with yourself if your loved ones were attacked and killed, and you had to stand there helplessly because you were unprepared for that day?”

It is denial that turns people into sheep. Sheep are psychologically destroyed by combat because their only defense is denial, which is counterproductive and destructive, resulting in fear, helplessness and horror when the wolf shows up.

Denial kills you twice. It kills you once, at your moment of truth when you are not physically prepared: you didn’t bring your gun, you didn’t train. Your only defense was wishful thinking. Hope is not a strategy. Denial kills you a second time because even if you do physically survive, you are psychologically shattered by your fear, helplessness and horror at your moment of truth.

Gavin de Becker puts it like this in “Fear Less”, his superb post-9/11 book, which should be required reading for anyone trying to come to terms with our current world situation: “…denial can be seductive, but it has an insidious side effect. For all the peace of mind deniers think they get by saying it isn’t so, the fall they take when faced with new violence is all the more unsettling.”

Denial is a save-now-pay-later scheme, a contract written entirely in small print, for in the long run, the denying person knows the truth on some level. And so the warrior must strive to confront denial in all aspects of his life, and prepare himself for the day when evil comes.

If you are warrior who is legally authorized to carry a weapon and you step outside without that weapon, then you become a sheep, pretending that the bad man will not come today. No one can be “on” 24/7, for a lifetime. Everyone needs down time. But if you are authorized to carry a weapon, and you walk outside without it, just take a deep breath, and say this to yourself…”Baa.”

This business of being a sheep or a sheep dog is not a yes-no dichotomy. It is not an all-or-nothing, either-or choice. It is a matter of degrees, a continuum. On one end is an abject, head-in-the-sand-sheep and on the other end is the ultimate warrior. Few people exist completely on one end or the other.

Most of us live somewhere in between. Since 9-11 almost everyone in America took a step up that continuum, away from denial. The sheep took a few steps toward accepting and appreciating their warriors, and the warriors started taking their job more seriously. The degree to which you move up that continuum, away from sheephood and denial, is the degree to which you and your loved ones will survive, physically and psychologically at your moment of truth.

Pull your bloody finger out!

How many more policemen have to die on 'routine' or 'low-risk' jobs before we arm them?

It's time to wake up and realise we are NOT living in the 1950's and ALL front-line police need to be armed and better (and more regularly) trained in the use of firearms.

Come on National- pull your bloody finger out and do something decisive here!

Gang patchs and state housing evictions

Here we all dealing with scumbags who's only connection with decent society is to leech from it through welfare and theft. They thumb their noses at our values at every opportunity.

SO- why accord them the rights and privileges of belonging to a civilized society?

What have they done to deserve the 'Human Right's they love to cry foul on, when they promote and live in a culture of feral savagery?

What to our higher principles have to do with criminal recidivists?

Sod them!

If an when they evolve from upright-walking primates to humans- then is the time to talk about 'Rights'- that is, when they learn the concept of responsibility other than the obligations of a vicious tribe.

Banning patches won't do a huge amount- apart from sparking violent behavior that the wearers can be locked up for- but it is a first step in saying "no bloody more!"

The world is full of bludgers and bastards

On the subject of the DBP, Lindsay Mitchel asks:

"...Have we given up caring? Is the DPB just part of the wallpaper now? Is it so institutionalised there is no going back? Or rather, going forward...?"

Not ALL of us have given up caring and we are the ones that never will!

I have yet to hear a convincing argument as to justify why MY earnings are TAKEN from me by force to pay for another persons dumb choices. Why the money I EARN is taken from my family to pay for somebody to bring up- or more likely, drag up a new generation of dysfunctional, ill-mannered, damaged and flawed professional mendicants who will do little but whine about their rights and entitlements.

Bring back the Workhouse for these types!

Two of my female friends have divorced on recent years. The DBP was never an option they even considered. No- they rolled up the sleeves, readjusted and found a way to work and be a parent. They got on with life and if it meant life was to be a whole lot harder for them, they sucked it up and only ever looked forward.

Now- others that I know (not people I would consider friends) split up from the sperm scatterers that spawned their bastard offspring and it was straight on the DBP. And there they will stay for a very long time. One has hope, she takes part-time jobs to help means meet- the other does not (despite having being offered several jobs)
It makes my blood boil when I drive past and see them getting stuck into the Bourbon on an afternoon while I'm out working- picking up the tab you might as well say.

My town (and I suspect your town) is full of these and this is the reason so many put their heads in the sand.

So many people have a stupid or feckless daughter/niece/aunt/sister who is in this position. If they spoke out against the DPB, they whould be in the gun for 'turning on their own'
Others may not approve of what their offspring has done, but they sure as hell don't want to be paying for them out of their own pockets.

This is all without taking into account those who have a shameless sense of entitlement and that 'the rich' should be taxed to pay for the poor 'Have Nots' (and I friggin' hate that phrase!)

Then we have the non-thinking class and that accounts for a fair portion of our population!

Lest you think I have forgotten them, I have NOT forgotten the feckless boy-men that spray their seed about without thought or care. THEY bear an equal burden of responsibility- and guilt. A while ago I heard on bleating about having to pay the kings ransom of $220 a month support for his children. He truely begrudged spending HIS money on HIS offspring- disgusting!

There is much said (at our expense) on responsibilities when driving a vehicle.

A hell of a lot less is said on being resposible for those you bring into the world

Swine Flew

This is how things should work

A quick inquiry- as is proper- then give the man a community service medal!

This case demonstrates how justice should- and often does not- work. A look at the facts to decide is this was self-defense and if it was- that's it for the shooter.

No waiting for months in limbo. No remortgaging to pay lawyers. No more stress than the poor sod has already been through in the course of being robbed.

And if you are passing through Tokaroa, buy a meal at Aotea Chinese Takeaways!

Good onya Mr Jiang!
