Judge David Harvey sent a THUG to the Big House for three years for what he accurately described as a gutless and cowardly act.
Last year three large adult Maori warriors, who had been drinking, were apparently incensed when a twelve year old boy allegedly mouthed something at them on a Blockhouse Bay Beach as he was leaving.
The three 'men' sic. chased the boy to his house, entered uninvited and proceeded to deal out what they thought appropriate punishment for the supposed offensive mouthed words.
On leaving, property was taken including an xbox, clothing and a necklace, referred to as Taonga .
So what, it happens with sickening regularity, what is special here.
Well Granny was convicted a couple of decades ago for assaulting patients with mental problems in an institution.
Cuzzies of these warriors were at the violent confrontation involving the PM at Ti Ti Mare.
The mother of these Nga Puhi warriors holds an influential position on an organisation opposing violent behavior.
The Uncle of the cowards is an MP and he committed to attempt to broker a peaceful outcome but didn't get around to contacting the boy victim or his family.
Could be described as just another inexplicable act of thuggery by members of the priviledged race, but for me a sad indictment and why I rejected a retirement in the beautiful winterless North when we exited from farming over a decade ago.
Welfare destruction of personal pride, respect for others and acceptance of the basic tenet that we are a united people. Entitlement and un-realistic expectations emanating from the rubbish of adherence to supposed interpretations of one of the versions of the Treaty of Waitangi, led me to believe a powder keg exists in the midst of certain elements of New Zealand citizenry particularly in what should be the best retirement option in our beautiful country.
