Slovakian man assassinated by NZ police

Posted by te2ataria on August 3, 2015

NZ police murders another foreigner

Slovakian national David Cerven, 21, was shot dead by Police assassins in Myers Park, Auckland, Sunday evening at about 7.45pm.

The victim came to New Zealand in March this year, police said.

Police have alleged that the victim had robbed a Dairy at knifepoint on Saturday night and that he was a suspect in two earlier robberies at liquor stores over last week.

The blog moderators are advised by “police insiders” that the victim did not carry a firearm and that the police team who assassinated him was fully aware at the time that he had NO firearm in his possession.

Auckland City District Commander, Superintendent Richard Chambers has so far failed to provide any evidence that the alleged suspect was indeed carrying a firearm, or how the victim could  have possibly come into possession of one, other than the one police might have planted on him, in a space of a few hours,  immediately after he had allegedly robbed the Dairy at knifepoint on Saturday.

The victim could have easily been disarmed by the police. Failing that, the police marksmen could have easily immobilized him by shooting him in the leg, or arm, instead of shooting to kill.

More than 99,000 dog bites in ten years (WTF)

Dog bites are causing increasing numbers of people to be hospitalised every year, according to a new study.

More than 99,000 dog bites were reported in New Zealand in the last 10 years, according to data released at the New Zealand Association of Plastic Surgeons annual scientific meeting. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11490903

Correction: A French and a British tourist receive official NZ welcome

Two male tourists were attacked at the Vagabond Backpackers Hostel in Christchurch.

Blood covers the driveway at a central Christchurch backpackers where two tourists were attacked by a group of people.

The tourists were attacked by up to eight people in the driveway of the Vagabond Backpacker Hostel on Worcester St between 2.30am and 2.45am on Saturday.

Both men have been admitted to hospital. One suffered a broken jaw, while the other has serious eye injuries.

The tourists were believed to be from France.

A Belgian tourist who is staying at the hostel, said he was asleep last night during the attack but had heard what happened from other backpackers.

He said a French man had been waiting for a taxi outside the hostel when a group of locals walked past.

“The guy was getting harassed and yelled and his mates came out [of the hostel]. They tried to help him, but I think they didn’t helped.

“There was a lot of blood this morning.”

Another French tourist said “a lot of people were talking about it this morning” at the hostel.

It is not known what nationality the other hospitalised tourist was.   http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/70746770/tourists-assaulted-by-up-to-eight-people-at-backpackers

Freedom campers terrorised at Caroline Bay, Timaru

Two French tourists have been harassed by strangers as they slept in their campervan at Caroline Bay.

Francois*  and Fanny* spent eight months travelling around Australia without incident. They arrived in Queenstown on Tuesday and stopped in Invercargill and Dunedin before making their way up to Timaru on Saturday. Everything went smoothly until they parked their campervan  at the Timaru freedom camping spot overnight on Sunday.

“Only here we have a problem,” Fanny said.

At 3.45am they were rudely woken by someone opening the side door of their campervan and screaming at them to wake up.  http://www.stuff.co.nz/timaru-herald/news/70550344/freedom-campers-terrorised-in-caroline-bay-timaru

Police car rolls after third car chase of the night in Northland

Three police chases in Northland ended with one patrol car sliding off the road and rolling, police said.

Police said the first chase began at 12.25am on Sunday when a car failed to stop for officers on Western Hills Drive in Whangarei.

The chase was abandoned for safety reasons but police began chasing the car again after it was spotted in Hikurangi, 20 minutes north of Whangarei.

The driver fled on foot at Waiomio Rd, 36km north of Hikurangi, but he was soon located by a police dog handler.

At 1.10am, there was another pursuit of a car stolen from Marsden Point, on the coast south of Whangarei.

The third dramatic chase occurred about 2.20am when an officer from Dargaville, who had been assisting with the second chase, spotted a 4WD vehicle towing a trailer without tail lights.  http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/70750597/police-vehicle-rolls-after-third-car-chase-of-the-night-in-northland


Credit: MAARTEN HOLL/The Dominion Post.  The new police car came to an early end as the driver wrapped it around a streetlight in central Wellington August 2009. Figures issued to The Dominion Post under the Official Information Act show that 734 police cars crashed in 2009, including 61 that crashed while pursuing speeding vehicles… About 100 police cars were written off in the five years to January 2010 at a cost of more than $3 million.

A death a day from police chases

In the U.S., more than 5,000 bystanders and passengers have been killed in police car chases since 1979, and tens of thousands of others were injured as officers repeatedly pursued drivers at high speeds and in hazardous conditions, often for minor infractions, a USA TODAY analysis shows.

“The bystanders and the passengers in chased cars account for nearly half of all people killed in police pursuits from 1979 through 2013, USA TODAY found. Most bystanders were killed in their own cars by a fleeing driver.”

In the state of Arizona [pop: ~ 6.8 million,] some 354 people were killed in police chases between 1979 and 2013, about 3 percent of the 11,506 deaths nationally, according to the report.

Based on information acquired from various sources,  the blog moderators believe that the rate of kill in police chases is probably higher in New Zealand than in the U.S.

Do the authorities cook the casualty figures?

At least 11,506 people, including 6,300 fleeing suspects, were killed in police chases from 1979 through 2013, most recent year for which [National Highway Traffic Safety Administration] NHTSA records are available. That’s an average of 329 a year — nearly one person a day.

But those figures likely understate the actual death toll because NHTSA uses police reports to determine if a crash was chase-related, and some reports do not disclose that a chase occurred.

Kansas, Michigan and Minnesota state records all show more chase-related deaths than NHTSA shows for those states.

“It’s an embarrassment,” said Geoffrey Alpert of the University of South Carolina, a leading researcher on police pursuits who has done numerous Justice Department studies. NHTSA records “are the only national database we have on these fatalities, and it’s been consistently wrong.”

The number of innocent bystanders killed is impossible to pinpoint because hundreds of NHTSA’s records fail to show whether a victim was killed in a car fleeing police or in a car that happened to be hit during a chase.

Analyzing each fatal crash, USA TODAY determined that at least 2,456 bystanders were killed, although the death toll could be as high as 2,750. The newspaper found that 55% of those killed were drivers fleeing police. They ranged from armed-robbery suspects to a 10-year-old boy chased as he drove a pick-up truck 85 mph on a county road before hitting a tree, killing himself and his 7-year-old passenger.

“Injuries are even harder to count because NHTSA keeps records of only fatal crashes,” said the report. http://www.azcentral.com/longform/news/2015/07/30/police-pursuits-fatal-injuries/30187827/

Body discovered below the Kepler Track

The body of a man has been located about 350m below the Kepler Track, after a pair of French Canadian tourists were reported as missing, police said.

Louis-Vincent Lessard and Etienne Lemieuxboth, both aged 23, were reported overdue by family members yesterday.

At about 4pm today (Sunday, 26th of July 2015), a body was located during an aerial search by police in an area between the Hanging Valley Hut and the Iris Burn Hut, according to a report.

Louis-Vincent Lessard (left) and Etienne Lemieux , the 2 French Canadian tourists reported as missing, were both 23 yrs old, studying at Université de Montréal Industrial Design. They were  last seen in Queenstown, New Zealand, on the 6th of July 2015. They left Canada for an outdoor adventure trip.

[Louis-Vincent Lessard, 5 feet 10 inches, 175 lbs, brown hair, blue eyes
Etienne Lemieux, 5 feet 10 inches, 185 lbs, brown hair, brown eyes.]

The pair’s intention was to walk the Kepler Track in Fiordland National Park, one of New Zealand’s top tourist deathtraps.

The Kepler Track is a 60-km circular tramping track near the town of Te Anau and passes through the Fiordland National Park in the Southland. It’s named after the German astronomer Johannes Kepler for no reason whatever.

What happened to this Korean woman?

Posted by te2ataria on July 19, 2015

Reward of up to $30,000 offered to locate missing person Yoon Sook CHUN

Yoon Sook Chun, 47, is one of more than 500 foreigners missing in New Zealand.

Mrs Chun was last seen on May 18, 2009, shortly before she left her Christchurch home.

Canterbury Police said:

“Mrs Chun was last seen six years ago and over that time it is also possible that loyalties will have changed, or someone who hoped she would be found without them getting involved will step up and contact police.

“We urge anyone who knows anything and hasn’t spoken to police before to come forward, so that police can decide whether the information is of importance to the investigation or not.

“If you are Mrs Chun please contact police.”

The offer would be valid until October 1, police said.

Mrs Chun “held both a New Zealand and South Korean passport.  Neither passport have been used to travel out of the country since her disappearance.”

Blog moderators sincerely hope Mrs Chun, who is a mother of two, is still alive. However, the chances of that are pretty slim.

‘Natural selection’ working at its best? Example 2

So you want to talk about natural selection…

Thousands of Kiwi kids poisoned by painkillers, household chemical…

[Thank god the Saudi air force pilots aren’t yet allowed to drop “toy” bombs on our playgrounds!]

Hundreds of kiwi kids are ending up in hospital poisoned every year, many after mistaking medicines for sweets, or experimenting with household chemicals.

“Safekids Aotearoa has crunched the numbers on poisoning hospitalisations for children, showing that over eight years nearly 2500 have ended up in hospital after unintentionally poisoning themselves,” according to a report.

Poisoning usually occurred at home, with children under five playing and experimenting with dangerous substances. Medicine accounted for about seven out of 10, with household chemicals, including toilet cleaner and dish-washing liquids, accounting for most of the rest, the report said.

New Zealand football team expelled from Oceania Olympic after “cheating”

Posted by te2ataria on July 12, 2015

Football team shamed and expelled for cheating!

New Zealand football team was expelled just hours before the final of the Oceania Olympic qualifying tournament because it was found to have fielded an ineligible player in the semi-finals, said the Oceania Football Confederation disciplinary committee (OFC).

OFC on Saturday decided that South Africa-born defender Deklan Wynne was not eligible to play in the semi-finals,  after Vanuatu protested their 0-2  loss, said Xinhua news agency.

As a result, Vanuatu were awarded the victory and went on to the final, playing Fiji earlier today.

“In accordance with Article 7 of the Regulations Governing the Application of the Statutes, a member of the New Zealand U-23 squad has been deemed ineligible to represent New Zealand,” the OFC said in a statement.

Fiji’s under-23 beat Vanuatu 4-3 on penalties and advanced to next year’s Rio Olympics.

The sinking of Rainbow Warrior 30 years ago today

Posted by te2ataria on July 9, 2015

Sent by a reader

“What was the role of NZ SIS in the Sinking of the Rainbow Warrior?”

The sinking of the Rainbow Warrior, codenamed Operation Satanic, was a special operation by the “action” branch of the French foreign intelligence services, the Direction Générale de la Sécurité Extérieure (DGSE), carried out on July 10, 1985. It aimed to sink the flagship of the Greenpeace fleet, the Rainbow Warrior, while she was docked in the port of Auckland, New Zealand, to prevent her from interfering in a nuclear test in Moruroa.

Fernando Pereira, a photographer, drowned on the sinking ship. Two of the French agents were subsequently arrested by the New Zealand Police on passport fraud and immigration charges. Following questioning, they were subsequently charged with arson, conspiracy to commit arson, willful damage, and murder. As part of a plea bargain, they eventually pleaded guilty to manslaughter and were sentenced to ten years, of which they served just over two.

The ensuing scandal resulted in the resignation of the French Defence Minister Charles Hernu, and the subject became so touchy that it was not until twenty years afterwards that the personal responsibility of French President François Mitterrand was officially admitted. (Source)

SIS Skunkery

“. . . SIS failed to stop New Zealand’s only terrorist attack since the SIS began. This was the bombing of the Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior by the French Secret Service in Auckland harbour. One man – photographer Fernando Pereira – was killed. The SIS also failed to predict the Fiji coup of 1987.

“It has however been involved in the harassment of activists. In 1981 during the Springbok tour of New Zealand the SIS released a list of ‘radicals and subversives’ they claimed were influencing the anti-tour movement. Their attempt to smear the movement failed.” — Civil Rights Defence Committee

  • Where were the SIS skunks when the Rainbow Warrior was bombed? Did they materially assist the French government’s terror agents, or just looked the other way?

  • Has a single SIS agent ever been prosecuted, dishonorably discharged, forced to retire, demoted, or otherwise disciplined for ‘failing’ to foil the the terrorist attack by the French government?

  • Since the SIS proven role is that of “protecting” the elite against ordinary people, can it continue as a government unit, or should it be incorporated as a private mercenary force like Blackwater Inc?

The ‘Swiss Knife’ of French Intelligence Folds—permanently

Xavier Maniguet, 62,  one of a group of assassins who helped destroy Greenpeace ship the Rainbow Warrior was reportedly killed in a plane crash.

Xavier Maniguet, also a flying instructor, was killed when his plane crashed in the French Alps near the resort of Saint-Sorlin-d’Arves.

Greenpeace flagship the Rainbow Warrior was bombed in Auckland Harbor because it  was campaigning against French nuclear testing in the South Pacific in 1985.

Dutch-Portuguese photographer Fernando Pereira was killed in the blast on July 10, 1985.

Thanks (!) to the NZ Security Intelligence Service (SIS), the French Secret Service bombing mission succeeded and Xavier Maniguet escaped without any problem.

Two other French assassins, Dominique Prieur and Alain Mafart, were later jailed for 10 years for manslaughter; however, New Zealand government allowed them to walk free because the French government had threatened to expose the NZ SIS link in the Rainbow Warrior bombing, codenamed operation Satanic.

‘Natural selection’ working at its best: Example 1

Posted by te2ataria on July 4, 2015

So you want to talk about natural selection…

A female “gossip columnist,” who works for a shabby news outlet, has mocked the death of the Cook Islands family, Cindy George and her three children in Ashburton as “natural selection”.

[Incidentally, the columnist in question was herself mocked by her friends while still at school because she never washed her hands after using the toilet, despite being a chronic nail-chewer.]

The Ashburton tragedy, whether it was foul play, or an accidental disaster, had nothing to do with natural selection, other than in the diary of a racist scumbag.

However, the mechanics of natural selection do have a strong presence in New Zealand, and play an important role in the evolutionary process…

Take the 2.98 million foreign visitors who arrived in New Zealand in the year ended May 2015 (www.med.govt.nz/).

The foreign visitors who visit New Zealand each year risk becoming victims of:

  • Inordinate number of homicides
  • Fatal incidents in NZ’s notorious tourist deathtraps
  • Deadly collisions on NZ’s deadly roads
  • Lethal food poisoning
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Potentially deadly UV radiation
  • Deadly viral infections
  • Extreme sports that become life-threatening due to inadequate safety measures and/or faulty equipment

[Borrowed from Apartheid Fort New Zealand]

Yet, they keep on arriving, year after year!

Now, that’s natural selection working at its best.
