WTF: It’s illegal to talk about suicide in New Zealand
Posted by te2ataria on May 20, 2016
Foreword: It’s illegal to talk about suicide in New Zealand, allegedly to prevent copycats. It’s also illegal, or effectively illegal through censorship, to complain about government, judiciary and police corruption, or discuss racism, poverty and social injustice… to prevent copycats, or for other equally important reasons, of course!
UK grief counsellor and social worker of 25 years loses her own son to apparent suicide
Believe or not, it’s illegal to talk about suicide in Godzone. Apparently, criminal laws govern what we can and can’t say about suicide, or even suspected suicide.
UK mother Catherine Hanson-Friend lost her only son, Patrick, 15, to apparent suicide.
The Invercargill teen is one of at least four Southlanders whose deaths are suspected suicides in the last 10 weeks.

Joining the queue at Work and Income
“Go see Work and Income,” said Prime Minister John Key, advising the homeless and unfortunate. We did.
One morning at a Christchurch Work and Income office: “The scene is unpleasant. It also feels discriminatory and, at the very least, rude.”
“I just hate going in there, it’s so demeaning. I don’t want to be in this position, I never imagined I would be. I have no choice but to ask them for help since my partner died. I’m bringing up our children on my own. It is what it is.”
Police failed to find vehicle and driver that caused fatal crash
The driver of a “dark-coloured people mover” that caused the deaths of former All Black Ian Uttley and his wife has never been found.
Truth hurts New Zealand tourism. The average tourist would not visit this country, if they knew true extent of the daily carnage on our deadly roads. Therefore:
To protect the tourism industry, about two-thirds of the road fatalities in New Zealand go unreported by our political police, or unrecorded by Minitru [“Ministry of Transport”.]
About 2.7 million licensed but not necessary qualified drivers, half million or so unlicensed/unqualified drivers and more than one million tourists (per year) drive on New Zealand death roads.
A large number of the above drive a vehicle under the influence (illicit drugs, banned substances, prescription medication…), while intoxicated, fatigued or mentally unfit, resulting in inordinate numbers of fatalities and injuries. [Other factors for the carnage include deadly roads, road unworthy vehicles…]
Between 2001 and 2014, New Zealand’s vehicle fleet reportedly increased by 32 per cent, while the population grew by 16 per cent and foreign travel was up by 15 per cent. And over the last 10 years the number of international visitors has increased by about 30 per cent.
Today is DAY 155 of the latest NZ TOURISTS or truth? (police censorship of road fatalities) campaign
- Blog estimate: About 900 people are killed on NZ roads each year. [Most probably] up to 350 road fatalities have occurred in NZ since 1 January 2016
How do they do it?
Police manipulate the road toll by censoring reports of fatal crashes, while the Ministry of Transport simply delete the unwanted road fatalities, even from their published records.
