Which act is more offensive?
"Three nephews of MP Hone Harawira, accused of beating up a 12-year-old boy, appeared in court this afternoon.
Mau Toa Harawira, 30, Enesi Zane Brooks Taito, 25, and Tohora Harawira, 22 - sons of anti-violence campaigner Hinewhare Harawira - are on bail after the alleged assault..."
"A commercial pilot was today fined $3750 for the "gravely offensive" act of hovering a helicopter over the summit of Aoraki/Mt Cook on Christmas Eve in 2011..."
I guess we will have to wait for the outcome of the first story to be settled in court, but if there were any true justice in this country, slapping around a little kid would carry a WAY bigger penalty than upsetting a mountain's mojo!
