Chinese tourist admits causing head-on crash
Yi Zhu, 45, from Shanghai, pleaded guilty to two charges of careless driving causing injury. The driver of the car he struck head on, as he came around a bend on the wrong side, had a broken sternum which left him dealing with pain and the cost of time off work. A passenger in Zhu’s car had a less serious injury.
Judge David Saunders [gleefully] told him at his appearance in the Christchurch District Court today: “You will be able to tell your friends when you get home that you have been to Paradise, and it cost a lot of money.” [You’re a real judge, or a “fat Aussie c**t” dressed as one?] Note: “coot” means a foolish old man. http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/76633750/Chinese-tourist-admits-causing-head-on-crash

Finally, other news today in the world’s safest haven for paedophiles
Only temporary supervision for freed paedophile
Stephen Shone, 37, a former Gisborne music teacher, who was jailed in 2008 for rape, sodomy and other sex offences against his teenage students after pleading guilty to 11 charges, and who did not seek any rehabilitation while in prison and is now free, and will only be supervised for six months.
“A blog by Shone came to light in September last year, where he made comments about one of the girls only having herself to blame and that one of his victim’s mothers lied to the police.” http://www.radionz.co.nz/news/national/295827/six-months-supervision-for-released-paedophile
Shone reportedly taunted his victims online, claiming he was wrongly convicted. He was released from prison on January 26, after serving all but two weeks of a seven-and-a-half-year sentence for sexually abusing five female students, aged 13 to 16. http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/76623875/paedophile-blogger-stephen-shone-released-from-prison
