Collective Bad Karma Claims Tycoon’s Son

Hoppers Could probably Save Two Remaining Kids

But they’ll have to work hard to wipe clean the karma slate

The heir to a property empire was burned to death, after he crashed his plane, which then burst into flames on Friday.

Stacey Hopper, 27, was flying a Yak-52, when the single-engine plane clipped a van and crashed at 3.55pm yesterday at the Marsden Cove Marina in One Tree Point, at a private air-strip about 40 kilometers southeast of Whangarei.

“As Gray Hopper ran toward the wreckage, he had just enough time to call their father Leigh and say: ‘Stace has had a bad crash. His plane has gone down.’ He then saw fuel leaking from a broken line and the plane was engulfed in flames.”

Mr Shanahan said the crash had devastated the Hopper family.

“Especially for Gray. To have to watch your older brother perish in such a way is horrifying. You would feel an overwhelming sense of futility,” he said.

Mr Hopper’s brother Gray, 24, and two others who were traveling in a Volkswagen van, suffered only minor injuries after the vehicle rolled as a result of the impact.

“Family friend and spokesman Paul Shanahan said the Hopper family had no idea what caused the crash that killed the eldest of their three children.” A report said.

The Hopper family own Hopper Developments, New Zealand’s largest coastal land development company, involved in major developments at Pauanui and Whitianga in Coromandel. The family also owns Hopper Construction, a civil engineering company.

Well, Mr Shanahan, APA the Maori seer has news for you. He says tell your friends that  it was “collective bad karma” that killed their son.

“Their other son Gray was spared just this once,” He says. “Tell them also that the only way to save the two kids would be by giving […] giving away everything they have taken […]  and leave it at that.”

APA says the next “karma wave” could claim one of the two kids of a “truly evil politician” in this country.

    France votes to return Maori heads to New Zealand

    The French parliament has voted to return the mummified heads of at least 15 Maori warriors to New Zealand.

    The heads, taken by European explorers in the 18th and 19th centuries, are currently on display in several museums in France.

    The decision ends years of debate and is part of a wider discussion in the US and Europe on the restitution of artefacts taken centuries earlier.

    The Maoris believed the preservation of the heads kept their spirits alive.

    But they became exotic collector items in Europe in the 19th Century, with museum officials saying some men may have been killed for their tattoos.

    MPs in France almost unanimously backed the bill to return the tattooed heads, some still with bits of hair and teeth attached, back to their home country.

    ‘Put to rest’

    It is the first time that French legislation has allowed an entire division of museum artefacts to be returned.

    “There are some things that are above art and which should remain sacred,” said Catherine Morin-Desailly, a French MP

    Catherine Morin-Desailly, the MP who proposed the bill, said it showed France’s commitment to human rights.

    “There are some things which are above art and which should remain sacred,” she told Associated Press.

    New Zealand first requested their return in the 1980s but the issue became more prominent in France in 2007 after a city council voted for one head to be sent back.

    The decision was later overturned by the French Ministry of Culture, which ruled such a decision could not be taken at local level.

    Critics had voiced concerns it might set a new precedent, putting other collections at risk.

    Pita Sharples, the New Zealand minister for Maori affairs, said the decision was a “matter of great significance”.

    “Maori believe that, through their ancestors’ return to their original homeland, their dignity is restored, and they can be put to rest in a peace among their families,” he said.

    The heads will be sent to the Te Papa museum in the New Zealand capital, Wellington, and then returned to tribal groups to be buried.
