Dishonest police necessary component of zombie democracy!

If you accept the crap thrown at you by police, then you confirm the status of our zombie democracy!

Public trust and confidence in Police in 2019 is even higher than last year, police have falsely alleged!

YGBFKM: “Police maintains high level of public trust and confidence”
Thursday, 31 October 2019 – 10:01am – National [Fake] News

Results from the 2018/19 Police Citizens’ Satisfaction Survey show that public trust and confidence in Police nationally remains high and stable at 79% – up from the previous year’s result of 78%. [Whose counting?? Editor]

Deputy Chief Executive Service Delivery Mark Evans says the latest Survey results show a high number of participants said they had ‘full’ or ‘quite a lot’ of trust and confidence in Police in what has been a challenging year with the events of March 15.

“While trust and confidence in Police is stable, we still need to keep improving,” says Mr Evans.

Here are the reasons [sic] for the “high level of public trust and confidence” in police:

  • About 850,000 serious crimes committed in the year to September 2019.
  • Chase-to-kill pursuits resulting in the murder of scores of people including innocent bystanders and fleeing drivers, and wrecking hundreds of police cars, paid for by the public, in the process.
  • Censoring reports of dozens of deaths on public highways.
  • Treating the killing/death of foreigners in NZ as state secrets.

The bad news is the good news is even worse!!

What would it tell if, heaven forbid, even a tiny fraction of the populace in this country ?

  • Police have been incapable of and unwilling to protect the public against acts of terrorism.
  • They have shown no initiative, and lacked the professionalism required to protect the public against atrocious acts of racist violence committed by the white supremacists.
  • Meanwhile, they have allowed a culture of drugs, violence and rape to plague the country.

This is how they cook the stats and create the desired illusion: a little at a time!

71% of those surveyed reported feeling very safe or safe in their neighbourhood after dark (compared with 70% in 2017/18) and

· 49% reported feeling very safe or safe in their local city or town centre at night (compared with 47% in 2017/18).

Survey participants are asked questions that relate to Police’s commitment of service, which includes treating the public fairly, taking individual circumstances into account, and providing good value for money.

In 2018/19, 80% of survey participants, who had recent contact with Police, were very satisfied or satisfied with the overall quality of Police service.

This result is the same as that in the preceding year.

The Police Citizens’ Satisfaction Survey has been run since 2008 and this year represents the results of more than 9,600 interviews [probably conducted in the Bahamas, with wealthy Kiwi expats] conducted between 1 July 2018 and 30 June 2019.

We’ll probably never know how much money Gravitas Research and Strategy Ltd received from police to prepare the report.

Unless Gravitas releases details of their survey, we’ll continue to believe that the results are fake!

The above paid-for report was cooked up despite the following facts:

What is it like to be bullied in the police?
“A senior sergeant told RNZ staff were forced to either join the bullying or wear the abuse. It was harder to get promoted when on the outside, and the mental toll was difficult to handle, he said. A lot of people battled depression as a result, and there was a growing number who struggled with drug and alcohol problems.”

Aya Maasarwe Murder: Aussie Judge Delivers!

Posted by te2ataria on October 29, 2019

Foreword: What sort of world do we live in where young women like Aya Maasarwe aren’t allowed to live, but scumbags like the rapists who murdered her get a second chance. Is that fair?

Sent by a reader [Edited by Moderator B.]

Australian judge jails murderer of Israeli Arab student for 36 years

Judge Elizabeth Hollingworth has jailed a man for raping and murdering an Arab Israeli student in a high-profile case in Australia.

Aya Maasarwe, 21, who had been living in Melbourne on a one-year university exchange was attacked near Melbourne’s La Trobe University, in the suburb of Bundoora, in January.

Ms Maasarwe was attacked around midnight on 16 January, while on the phone to her sister.

Herrmann struck his victim with a metal bar before raping her and inflicting other fatal violence, the court heard. He then set her body alight in an attempt to cover up his crime.

RIP. Aya Maasarwe, 21, was violated and murdered in Melbourne. Her father said: “She was like [an] angel, even when she was born … Her smile makes you smile, her laugh makes you laugh. She looked every time in the light and in the positive and in the sky.”

.

Victorian Supreme court Justice Hollingworth today sentenced the killer, Codey Herrmann, 21, to 36 years in prison with a non-parole period set for 30 years calling the heinous act a “savage attack”.

Judge Hollingworth described Ms Maasarwe as “a kind young woman who had her whole life in front of her”.

“Women should be free to walk the streets alone without fear of being attacked by strangers,” she told the Supreme Court of Victoria.

We have “a disturbingly high rate of violence against women“, Australia’s human rights commission said.

At least one in five women, and one in 20 men, have experienced sexual violence or threats since the age of 15, government figures show.

Hundreds of thousands of Kiwis forced to work zombie hours

Posted by te2ataria on October 27, 2019

Sent by a reader in Volcano City

‘The working dead: Zombies of economy’ report

“Two-thirds [67%] of employed people had worked at a non-standard time at least once in the last four weeks. (Non-standard times includes any hours worked outside of 7am to 7pm, Monday to Friday.)  –Survey of working life: 2018 [Stats NZ]

“One-fifth of people who worked at non-standard times experienced difficulties because of their work times. The most common difficulty was work interfering with sleep or causing health problems, followed by lack of time with family.”

Multiple-job holders

“Almost one in 10 employed New Zealanders have more than one job. This equates to 222,900 people.

“Multiple-job holders were more likely to work at non-standard times and more frequently. Of those with two or more jobs, 80 percent had worked at a non-standard time at least once during the last four weeks, compared to 65 percent of people with one job.

“53 percent of multiple-job holders worked at a non-standard time six or more times in the past four weeks, compared to 40 percent of single-job holders.”

Working in physically dangerous or risky conditions

“A third of all employed people worked in a job that always or often involved hard physical work and 15 percent always or often worked in physically dangerous or risky conditions.

“One in three machinery operators and drivers, and technicians and trades workers always or often worked in physically dangerous or risky conditions.”

Working like zombies

Many kiwis are tired, overworked and underpaid people are the walking dead of the New Zealand economy,” a report says.

A woman who works up to 80 hours a week, through the night and into the day said: “It’s so expensive, the living… The year before you could do a full supermarket trolley, probably $100, $150; now, oh my gosh, probably your trolley gets full and it’s over $300.”
“People not turning up for work because they are starting to be worn down, because they are doing long hours and start to get sick.

“Some of them get advice from the doctor they need the rest, getting stressed up . . . their bodies are not functioning.”

“By and large people are driven into it by precarious work, by low pay, through when work’s available or when employers choose to make it available,” says an organising director at the Unite union.

I reckon if you asked most of those people what their preference would be it would still be that they could earn enough with one employer in the hours available to them to not have to juggle employment like that.”

Project Bioshield XXXX: NZ a designated area for tests!?

Open-air germ warfare tests being conducted in NZ?

Concerns for the future of New Zealand’s billion dollar chicken farming industry after virus outbreak

“New Zealand chicken farmers are concerned about the future after the discovery of a poultry disease jeopardised the multi-million dollar export market, an industry executive says.

The very virulent contagious serotype 1 infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV type 1) has been confirmed on two Otago hen farms owned by Mainland and in close proximity to each other, Stuff reported.

Tegel, the main exporter of chicken meat across the Tasman, operates three plants around the country, but its export certificate was cancelled after the virus was detected, the report said.

In the year ending April 2018, Tegel made $615.4m in revenue with $89.6m coming from the export market, which includes Australia [about $60 million,] the Pacific Islands, Hong Kong, the United Arab Emirates and the Philippines.

Biological Warfare

‘Army Conducted 239 Secret, Open-Air Germ Warfare Tests’
March 9, 1977

The Army disclosed yesterday that it secretly conducted 239 germ warfare tests in open air between 1949 and 1969, some tests releasing live but supposedly harmless microscope “bugs” at Washington’s Greyhound bus terminal and National Airport as part of the experiment.

The idea, according to a two-volume report the Army gave to the senate health subcommittee yesterday, was to learn how to wage biological warfare and defend against it.

The Washington tests started in 1949 at an undisclosed location and were conducted again in may, 1965, at the bus terminal and airport.

Washingtin [sic] was one of five cities where the Army released simulated lethal germs i public places. Other cities where the public served as unknowing guinea pigs were New York, San Francisco, Key West and panama City, Fla.

A[ll] told, the Army listed 27 times that it tested simulated toxins on public property, including releasing spores in two tunnels on a stretch of Pennsylavia Turnpike. … [Washington Post]

U.S. Germ Warfare Research Pushes Treaty Limits

Over the past several years, the United States has embarked on a program of secret research on biological weapons that, some officials say, tests the limits of the global treaty banning such weapons.

Over and over again, the military has conducted dangerous biowarfare experiments on Americans [And elsewhere in the world]

On September 20, 1950, a US Navy ship just off the coast of San Francisco used a giant hose to spray a cloud of microbes into the air and into the city’s famous fog. The military was testing how a biological weapon attack would affect the 800,000 residents of the city.

Other experiments involved testing mind-altering drugs on unsuspecting citizens. In one shocking, well-known incident, government researchers studied the effects of syphilis on black Americans without informing the men that they had the disease — they were told they had “bad blood.”

In 2012, Lisa Martino-Taylor, a sociology professor at St. Louis Community College-Meramec, released a report theorizing that the army’s experiments could be connected to cancer rates in a low-income, mostly black neighborhood in the city where zinc cadmium sulfide had been tested.

In 2001, a New York Times report revealed projects testing biological weapons that began under the Clinton administration and continued under the second Bush administration.

President Bush Signs Project Bioshield Act of 2004

After the 2001 anthrax attacks, funding for bioterrorism research spiked by $1.5 billion. Then in 2004, Congress approved another $5.6 billion bioterror research project.

More Chinese killed in the UK than NZ in October, so far!

NZ govt prostitutes services to feed ‘cocaine’ habits

Posted by te2ataria on October 25, 2019

A crowdfunding campaign would have raised many times the money paid by the barbarians, allegedly needed to plant more trees!

SINCE WE ARE ALLOWING FOREIGNERS TO BUY MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF NEW ZEALAND LAND, WHY DO WE STILL NEED A MILITARY TO DEFEND AGAINST THREATS OF OCCUPATION BY THE SAME COUNTRIES?

Chastity Ardern and Eugenie “not mine to worry” Sage gave the Japanese permission to buy even more NZ land

Under the auspices of NZ’s vestal PM, her most patriotic Land Information Minister and Green MP Eugenie Sage, and the WYSIWYG Associate Finance Minister David Clark, the Japanese have been given a free pass to buy thousands of hectares of New Zealand land without applying to the Overseas Investment Office (OIO).

Chastity’s uncorrupt, ethical and trustworthy government has given the Japanese-owned Pan Pac Forest Products special permission to bypass the OIO to buy thousands of hectares of land for forestry over the next three years. The government allegedly needs the cash to satisfy her greenhouse gasses exhalation habits–planting more trees.

The pre-approval was given to Pan Pac despite the Green Party having strongly protested land sales to foreigners and Forestry Minister Shane Jones saying he was sympathetic to rural concerns that converting productive farm land to forestry could cost jobs.

The special permission given to Pan Pac pass, known as a ‘standing consent’, was co-signed by the Associate Finance Minister David Clark. [Apparently, other than lots of cash changing hands, no baksheesh, payola, or kickback was involved in awarding the special permission, but we can’t be sure. Editor]

Pan Pac, which is 100 percent owned by Japan’s Oji Green Resources, has been given the free pass “to make 25 transactions involving 20,000ha of land and is valid until 2022,” a report said.

Ministers signed off on the decision on 19 September but kept it under wraps until now.

The move has stoked fears in rural communities that their towns will be hollowed out by the ‘green rush’ to forestry.

Andy Scott, spokesman for lobby group Fifty Shades of Green, formed to voice rural concerns about job loses from converting productive farm land to forestry, was horrified by the deal.

“How can they give a free pass to a Japanese company to come and buy productive farms to turn into pine trees? They will be lost to New Zealand forever. Gone.”

He said ceding control to a foreign-owned company was “ludicrous” and he believed the decision would add fuel to the fire ahead of a protest march on Parliament the group was planning for 14 November.

“How can they give them authority to purchase land without any OIO consent? It’s unbelievable,” Mr Scott said.

At least 3.3 percent of New Zealand’s land is foreign owned, according to RNZ. However, “RNZ has only counted freehold land – that is, land owned outright. A separate analysis of lease titles found that many of the largest landowners were also large leaseholders. That includes forestry companies, who often buy surface rights – known as ‘cutting rights’ – to plant and harvest trees, but not the land itself.”

“Of the land RNZ did identify as privately owned, half was concentrated among a tiny group of 4600 people or entities – equivalent to 0.1 percent of New Zealand’s population.”

On the other hand, individuals and entities who own 0.1 hectares or less [that’s about 99% of the population] own less than half a percent of the land in NZ, the report said.

That was remarkable and “very scary”, English researcher and author Guy Shrubsole said.

More than 70 percent of the forestry sector in NZ is foreign-owned. [New Zealand’s total land area is 26.8m ha including 45.9% agricultural, 31.2% forest, and 22.9% other land. Editor]

The 100 biggest private landowners in New Zealand by area, not including the Crown and public entities (which control at least 28 percent of the land) or iwi have freehold ownership of 1.42m ha of land – more than 10 percent of all privately-owned land and about 5 percent of New Zealand’s total land area of 26.8m ha, according to RNZ research. [100 percent of all NZ land belonged to Maori before the colonization. Editor]

Data underlines inequality

“Max Rashbrooke, an inequality researcher at Victoria University’s Institute for Governance and Policy Studies, said the data underlined “the enormous wealth inequality in New Zealand”.

“You don’t have distributed ownership of land in any sort of economically meaningful sense when you have such a dominance… by just a hundred landowners and companies.”

Another typical day in NZ: Baptized by fire and police homicidal acts

Posted by te2ataria on October 22, 2019

Massive fire engulfs SkyCity Convention Centre in Auckland CBD

Auckland’s SkyCity Convention Centre fire

Massive fire has engulfed the under-construction SkyCity Convention in Auckland CBD, sending thick smoke across the city.

SkyCity Auckland Convention Centre fire live: Hundreds of hotel guests stranded as blaze rages

 

2. Another innocent driver killed in yet another assassinatory [“chase-to-kill”] police pursuit

Innocent driver killed was at least the fifth victim of Christchurch police chase-to-kill crashes so far this year.
[For a list of the reported victims of police chase-to-kill crashes search blog content.]

Kenneth McCaul was driving his Hyundai Grandeur when he was T-boned at the intersection of Glandovey and Idris roads in Fendalton about 4am on Tuesday. The impact shunted his car into a stone wall.

He sustained critical injuries and was taken to hospital, but died a short time later. His was the fifth death relating to police pursuits in Christchurch this year. [Stuff]

Police’s claim that their chase-to-kill policy protects the public is BULLSHIT!

3. Police finally start homicide investigation into disappearance of Jessica Boyce

Police have finally decided to treat the disappearance of Jessica Boyce, 27, as a homicide.

StarShip Earth Meditative Vigil – October

Posted by te2ataria on October 19, 2019

StarShip Earth Meditative Vigil – October 2019

The Vigil organizers together with their colleagues and friends throughout the world will be holding the next synchronized meditative vigil at 06:00UTC (7.00pm NZDT) on Sunday, October 20, and thereafter on the 20th of each month throughout 2019.

  •  Plug into the awesome cosmic forces that ensure your existence, and broadcast your innermost feelings!

Witness with your mind’s eye the wanton destruction of Starship Earth as being perpetrated by the omniciders, and let the overwhelming feeling of agony, sorrow and pain arising from the enormous loss touch your inner world…

Project onto the terrorists—the super-wealthy class, their puppet governments, all other enablers and family members, collectively the Axis of Evil—the pain and suffering caused by the ongoing ecological holocaust and wanton ecocide, militarism and war economy, poverty and inequality, racism and social exclusion…

  • The Vigil will last for 15 minutes, starting at 06:00UTC (7.00pm NZDT) Sunday October 20.

We invite everyone, wherever they may be, to join us!

  • World’s 24 richest people own as much as the bottom 50 percent, or about 3.9 billion people!

Let’s project the omniciders vanishing into the ether at warp speed!

Stake your claim: Don’t let the omniciders commit you to extinction!

STOP the oncoming acts of omnicide:

Egan asked: “What’s your estimate for Tokyo Olympics carbon footprint?”

Ken replied:

About 67 billion kg (67,000 kt) of GHGs.

Here’s some additional information on how the Tokyo Olympics carbon footprint was calculated:

“Staging the Olympics comes with a huge environmental footprint. Flying an estimated 28,500 athletes and staff to Brazil for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio generated more than 2,000 kilotonnes (kt) of greenhouse gases (GHG) — not to mention the 2,500 kt of GHGs associated with bringing in about half a million spectators.”
https://www.smithsonianmag.com/innovation/world-striving-cut-carbon-emissions-do-olympics-make-sense-180968181/

Flying the athletes and staff to Japan: 2,000 kilotonnes (kt) of GHGs

Japan’s government expects the “Olympics effect” will bring approximately an extra 10 million visitors to the country in 2020.

10 million visitors carbon footprint: 50,000 kt of GHGs

Period of the Games Friday, 24 July – Sunday, 9 August 2020 (17 days)
Para Olympics: Period of the Games Tuesday, 25 August – Sunday, 6 September 2020 (13 days) Tickets sold Olympics 8.8 million; Paralympics 2.5 million

Tokyo 2020 Olympics: Expecting 920,000 spectators and workers per day (average travel of 100km traveled per person x 30 days x 80g/km of GHGs traveling on a combination of trains, buses, taxis and local flights): 220 kt of GHG [https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-49349566]

Total cost of infrastructure and other spending expected at $25 billion
Amount of GHG for every dollar spent: 584g/$ – carbon footprint: 14,600 kt of

Poweball is rigged: “Follow the money!”

Posted by te2ataria on October 18, 2019

UPDATED

Truth about Powerball: Readers discuss the scam

In reply to POWL, Jack P. said:

Please remove my earlier submission, which I’ve now updated.
Jack

Here is a simplified model for NZ Powerball:
Winning combinations are generated with improbable odds and at highly improbable frequency:
– The odds of winning the jackpot (six Lotto numbers from 1 to 40 + powerball) are 1 in 38,383,800 (one in 38.4 million).
– The odds that each draw produces a winner with only 1.7 million tickets (4 lines each) sold is about 1.7*4/38.4 or 1 in 5.64 . [The probability of two jackpots being won with the same improbable odds are 1/5.64 x 1/5.64]
– Some 14 winning combination have resulted from 82 draws, so far this year. The odds of that happening are about 1 in 5,691,948,389 (5.69E09) or 1 in 5.7 billion.

I conclude the system is rigged to produce “easy” wins. For additional answers, follow the money: Assuming at least some of the winners are not part of the scam, where exactly do the considerable proceeds from ticket sales go?

Ps. I have submitted the model to my math professor for verification and validation by simulation on a supercomputer.

POWL had commented earlier:

The Jackpot rollover prize ceiling of $50million is designed to deter syndicate players, because the cost of buying 38,383,800 tickets (each at $1.50) to guarantee a win is $57,575,700.
What are the odds the jackpot could be won 14 times, so far this year. Can anyone provide an estimate?

Missing Chinese girl: Something fishy about police update

Posted by te2ataria on October 13, 2019

Where’s the 17yo Chinese girl who was reported missing in Auckland?

Police said they had concerns for the safety of a 17-year-old Chinese girl Xiuhan Lyu who’s been missing. She was last seen at her home on the North Shore on Friday.

Police reported Xiuhan Lyu, 17, as missing in Auckland area on Sunday, and then they changed their story within a few hours .

.

She has been in New Zealand for less than a month and it is unknown whether she is still in the Auckland area, a report posted at 2:19pm today (13 Oct, 2019) cited police as saying.

Police were asking anyone who sees the missing girl to contact them immediately on 111.

Then, police changed their story within a few short hours. At 5:00pm they posted the following message on their website:

.

So, what’s the problem, you might ask?

The problem is our sources cannot verify that Xiuhan Lyu has left the country!

At what point do “passengers” become “patients” in a car crash?

The bards at the Police Media Centre sing again!

Isn’t primary school education an essential requirement for joining the Jerks in Blue?  Then again, the “car” that crashed might have been an ambulance, or the passengers were “professional patients”!?

What is it in our DNA, or missing from it…

Posted by te2ataria on October 12, 2019

Sent by a reader [Edited by moderator N.]

… that makes our politicians, police, judiciary, academia… so pathologically corrupt, criminally incompetent, or both?

US judge sets example in the Facebook friends gruesome murder case!

Judge Mark Trusock sentenced Michigan murderer Jared Chance  to 100 – 200 years in prison for the 2018 murder and mutilation of his Facebook friend.

[That’s how competent, professional, morally upright, and incorrupt judges discharge their duties and uphold their oath of office. Moderator]

“This is without question the worst case that I have ever been involved in,’’ the Judge said. “What you did was reprehensible and heinous.’’

Jared James Chance, 29, murdered and dismembered the body of Ashley Young, 30, a woman he had met via Facebook.

The Judge said he had specifically gone above sentencing guidelines to deny Chance the opportunity for parole until he is 130 years old, a report said.

“Jared Chance, I hate you. I want to rip you limb from limb and discard you like trash. Like you did to Ashley,’’ victim’s mother Kristine Young shouted in courtroom. “You do not deserve to breathe.’’

Center: Facebook murderer Jared Chance. (Top left) Murder victim Ashley Young, and her mother Kristine.  (Bottom left) Facebook friends, Jared the murderer and his victim Ashley. (Right) the murderer’s parents James and Barbara.

Meanwhile, the murderer’s parents, Barbara, 63, and her husband, James Chance, 76, a retired Illinois police sergeant, are facing felony charges of perjury and accessory for failing to tell police that they knew their son had mutilated and hidden Ashley Young’s body parts.

The exact nature of the relationship between Chance and Young remains unclear, but the two had become friends via Facebook.

While Ashley’s torso, arms and legs were found in a cardboard box, her hands and feet have not been found. Police say they believe Chance threw them in a trash bin.

Call for public audit of NZ Lotto and Powerball!

Posted by te2ataria on October 10, 2019

Sent by blog reader “Eve” [Edited by Moderator DH. Updated by Moderator K]

31 Kiwis became overnight Lotto millionaires in 2019 so far –Report

“I wonder if the blog post had anything to do with the Powerball rollover!” Eve has asked.

[Eve left her comment at: Okay, Lotto New Zealand is rigged, too!]

The blog had commented on: “The odds for the Lotto to be won pretty regularly, with far fewer rollovers than any similar system anywhere in the world.”

Lotto jackpots to $32m after tonight’s Powerball goes begging —NZHerald

Lotto’s Powerball has jackpotted to a jaw-dropping $32 million after tonight’s monster $28m jackpot failed to go off.

It means Kiwis across the country will get another shot at becoming multimillionaires this weekend.

“Saturday’s $32 million Powerball jackpot is one of the largest in New Zealand history,” said Lotto spokeswoman Kirsten Robinson.

What are the odds that each year at least 31 Kiwis become “millionaires after winning with Lotto’s games,” asks Eve?

This year, 31 Kiwis became overnight millionaires after winning with Lotto’s games, including 12 who have won big with Powerball. [That’s a total of 31 wins over 40 weeks including the dozen mega wins, despite the Powerball’s gravity-defying odds. Moderator]

And in total, 906 Kiwis had become overnight millionaires with Lotto since it was established way back in 1987. [That’s an average of 28 wins per year. Moderator]

The odds of winning the NZ Lotto top prize are one in 3.8 million and an even more dizzying for the Powerball at one in 38 million. [Sci-fi fans would be thrilled to learn the range of statistical improbabilities.]

You have a higher chance of being born with extra fingers or toes, or nailing a hole-in-one on a par 3 at the golf course.

You’re even more likely to be struck by lightning (one in 280,000), eaten by a shark (one in 3,700,000) or killed in a car crash on your way home (one in 11,000) (sic).

To cover all the combinations and guarantee a winner in the Powerball draw, 38,383,800 tickets, each with a unique combination, must be bought.

If the tickets are bought randomly by large number of people playing independent of each other, which is normally the case, many more than 38 million tickets would be required to win the Poweball because of the multiples of no-win combinations. [Multiple wining combinations seldom occur.]

The 38,383,800 tickets bought @ $1.50 generate $57,575,700 in revenue for each draw. That’s a whopping $3 billion per year from the sales of Powerball tickets alone!
