“Suicide is painless”

Posted by te2ataria on August 11, 2016

Sent by a v. disappointed rugby fan who feels somewhat…

“It brings on many changes…”

Through early morning fog I see
Visions of the things to be
The pains that are withheld for me
I realize and I can see…

That suicide is painless
It brings on many changes
And I can take or leave it if I please.
… and you can do the same thing if you please.

The game of [Rugby] is hard to play
I’m gonna lose it anyway

A brave man once requested me
To answer questions that are key
Is it to be or not to be
And I replied ‘oh why ask me?’

ANOTHER young Asian Male found dead on Orewa Beach (Auckland, NZ)

Posted by te2ataria on June 11, 2015

Was the victim last seen in the MacDonald’s, too?

Waitemata/Orewa Police are trying to identify a man who was found dead this morning (Thursday, 11 June 2015 ) on Orewa Beach, on the northern end of the beach near the cliffs, just after 7.30am.

“The person appears to be an Asian male, aged in his mid 20’s. He does not have any identification or personal belongings on him and Police are asking for anyone who knows who he is to contact Orewa Police on 09 426 4555.”

The victim was found wearing black trackpants with a white stripe down the side, a hooded sweatshirt and orange socks.

Until Police are able to identify the man [his next of keen will not be informed?] and look into the circumstances that led to this morning’s incident [what exactly was the nature of the “incident”?] the death will continue to be treated as unexplained. [Will murder be regarded as “explained” death in NZ police parlance?]

[To our international readers, who can still read this blog: Orewa beach is described as “one of the longest and safest beaches in Auckland,” on tourist literature.]

The man was found to be “unresponsive” during a check at 5:40am. He had been alone in the cell throughout the night, police insist.  [Does that mean even uncle Donald didn’t enter the cell?]

The victim was [conveniently] pronounced dead upon arrival of paramedics.

No apologies to the dead who didn’t make it to NZ road kill list

Posted by te2ataria on May 25, 2015

Weekend reported fatalities bring road toll to at least 134

At least two more motorists were killed on our death roads during the weekend, a 22-year-old male in Hawke’s Bay on Friday night, and another in a collision on the West Coast on Sunday afternoon.

The latest reported fatalities bring the reported road toll for the year to date to 134. Only (!) 122 road deaths were reported at the same time last year, said the Ministry of Transport.

Fatal crashes year to date

  • As at 25 May 2015: 118 (resulting in 134 fatalities)
  • Same time last year: 114 (resulting in 122 fatalities)

The Ministry has made NO apologies to the dead whose details were excluded from the official road kill list.

More doctored figures are available at the Ministry’s websites

Average social cost per injury and per crash [from http://www.transport.govt.nz%5D

Updated value of statistical life:  $3.95 million per fatality (June 2014 prices)
Cost per fatality including other social cost components: $3,981,700.

Total social cost of road injury crashes in 2013

Total social cost of motor vehicle injury crashes in 2013 estimate:  $3.14 billion (June 2014 prices). “Loss of life and/or life quality due to permanent impairments accounted for approximately 91 percent of the total social cost of injury crashes. Vehicle damage accounted for around five percent, and other cost components made up the remaining four percent.”

  • Estimated 204,470 non-injury crashes, valued at a further $0.6 billion were also reported.

Another Indian student murdered in Auckland

Posted by te2ataria on May 14, 2015

The blog moderators strongly believe that the murder of 21-year-old Indian student Manjeet Singh was racially motivated.

Body on Mission Bay beach identified: Police

The man found dead on Mission Bay beach yesterday morning (13 May 2015) has been identified as 21 year-old Manjeet Singh, an Indian national who was  in Auckland while on a student visa, police said.

Police said their inquiries into how the victim came to be dead in the water are continuing “and officers will be examining CCTV footage, bank and ‘phone records to try and establish his movements and who he was with in the city on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.”

The victim was at the Britomart McDonalds shortly after 1am yesterday, according to the police report.

Anyone with information about Mr Singh, should contact Detective Sergeant James Robson at Glen Innes CIB.

A post-mortem examination was held earlier today to establish the circumstances around Mr Singh’s death, the report said.

  • In November 2013, Tarun Asthana, 25, was killed outside McDonald’s in downtown Auckland’s Queen St. He was returning from a night of clubbing with friends when he was punched and knocked to the ground, according to reports.
  • In March 2011, a NZ Coroner ruled the badly decomposed body found at 90 Mile Beach three weeks earlier was  that of Indian Student Mr Sunil Kumar Raghavaraju, 25, who was a student in Auckland.
  • In October  2009, Srikanth Rayadurgam, 23, an Auckland University of Technology (AUT) student, left his Mt Albert home, Auckland, never to be seen again.
  • In November 2011, Indian man Charanpreet Singh Dhaliwal was found dead with horrendous head injuries at a west Auckland building site. Police say the 22-year-old security guard was assaulted and died from head injuries.

Numerous other Indian nationals, including about a dozen students, have been killed or murdered in New Zealand since this blog began publishing. See blog content for more  details.

More Foreigners Killed Over Holidays

Posted by te2ataria on January 3, 2014

Officially, Seven people were killed on New Zealand roads over the holiday period

Ministry of Transport says there were only seven fatalities  between 4pm on Christmas Eve and 6am today.

[We don’t believe them because the figures are doctored as usual, but that’s another story.]

List of the victims including kiwis are as follows:

  •  Sandy Paul Waenga Brown, 21, of Paua, was killed south of Cape Reinga in the early hours of Christmas Day.
  •  Olivia Lu, 11 months, died after a single-car crash on State Highway 1 near Raumati South on December 28.
  • Unnamed 56-year-old woman from China was killed in a crash between Te Anau and Mossburn in Southland on December 29.
  • Kahui Matauwhati, 4, of Masterton, was killed in a crash at Owhango, 21 kilometres south of Taumarunui, on December 29.
  • Lynelle Joy Bray, 46, died in a collision between a bus and car in Hamilton on December 30.
  • Gregory John Spargo, 50, of Auckland, died in a motorcycle crash near Bulls on New Year’s Eve
  • A male motorcyclist, possibly a French national, was killed  in a collision between his bike and a car on the Napier-Taihape road yesterday.

“Meanwhile Hawke’s Bay Hospital reported this morning that Manmeet Singh, the baby injured in a crash on the Taupo-Napier highway yesterday when a van plunged down a 10-metre bank, has been taken off the critical list, but his father Jagtar was still in a critical condition in intensive care,” according to a report.

Fatal Crash on SH94

A few Hours after the official holiday period ended, there was another fatal crash involving Chinese tourists:

“The crash involved three cars, the first car was a rental driven and occupied by four tourists from China,” according to a report by Fuseworks.

“The driver is a male aged 43 years in Dunedin hospital in critical condition, a female aged 56 years was found deceased at the scene, a male aged 58 years has been transferred to Christchurch hospital in critical but stable condition and a female aged 30 years is in moderate condition in Invercargill hospital.”

Fiction: Ministry of Transport says New Zealand’s annual road toll for 2013 was 254, the lowest since 1950.

Fact:

  1. Miracles don’t happen.
  2. The rules for recording road fatalities have changed.
  3. Many road fatalities probably go unreported if there are no [credible] witnesses.
  4. If the victim is fatally injured but dies on the way to hospital, or while awaiting medical attention in the emergency room, her death would not be recorded as a road kill.
  5. Other tricks we haven’t discovered yet.

Another Indian student killed in Auckland

Posted by te2ataria on November 5, 2013

“I love you bro”

Those were the last words Eddie Lo said to his friend Tarun Asthana before his life support was switched off in Auckland City Hospital on Monday.

Tarun Asthana, 25, died yesterday after being punched outside McDonald’s in downtown Auckland’s Queen St early Saturday morning. He was returning from a night of clubbing with friends when he was punched and knocked to the ground, according to reports.

murder victim tarun asthana
Tarun Asthana, 25, was studying to be a teacher. He never expected his life would be cut short this way.

“He was a kind, loyal, fun-loving guy. He was always respectful and nice to be around,” said his former employer, restaurant owner Garry Bates.

“He was always very reliable, just a nice guy. I liked him, I’m very sad.”

His friend Eddie Lo, who was with him when he was viciously attacked, said Asthana’s death was “heartbreaking” and he had to keep telling himself “you’re in a better place now“.

Grenville David McFarland, 27, a sailor in NZ Navy (!) was charged with assaulting Asthana in the Auckland District Court on Monday. Police said they might consider upgrading the charge!

He was granted bail and ordered to return to court on 15 November.

“Auckland Mayor Len Brown says there has been progress in making central Auckland streets safer, but admits more work needs to be done to prevent deaths like that of Auckland student Tarun Asthana.”

Unfortunately, Mr Athana wasn’t available to comment on Mayor Brown’s statement.

The few kiwi things …

Posted by te2ataria on February 21, 2011

Sent by a reader in sewage city [Wellington]

Few things that are intrinsically kiwi

A kiwi stepfather…

Simon Nicholas Plaistowe, 47, of Rotorua, was forced to plead guilty to 11 charges of making intimate recordings of his two stepdaughters and their friend, aged between 12 and 17, while they were either sleeping or taking showers in the family home.

[It’s NOT known who is in possession of the hard disk, where the shower scenes were stored, or how many copies were made. ]

A [good] kiwi weekend …

A good kiwi weekend is probably one when the number of reported road kills are in single digits. [For the exact numbers, multiply the reported figure by an average of 4.]

At least 5 people were killed  on New Zealand Death Roads in the weekend.

A “Lucky” Tourist in the Dark Land …

“An elderly man was thrown five metres after hit by a bus on Lambton Quay this afternoon,” according to a report.

“Prime Minister John Key today stood by his comment that some people needed to use foodbanks because they had made poor choices.”

Thanks to the multi-million dollar loots by Mr Key and rest of his gang, about one in ten New Zealander lives on ever-shrinking welfare.

Typical kiwi cuisine…

“Horse semen will be on offer at next month’s Hokitika Wildfoods festival. It’ll be around $10 for a shot and brave foodies can chase it down after with an energy shot. There’ll also be different flavours to choose from.”

Most NZ Crime Goes Unreported

Posted by te2ataria on December 17, 2010

At least 67 percent of crime in New Zealand goes unreported: Survey

The following are excerpts reprinted from a report by The Dominion Post

Only a third of crime in New Zealand is reported, according to a survey.

About a quarter of 6,000 respondents surveyed, said they felt the police could not or would not deal with it.

“Sexual crimes were the least likely to be reported, often because the victim was ashamed or embarrassed.”

[See also: 91 percent of the rapes either go unreported, or the victims are intimidated by the police to drop complaints.]

At least 2.6 million offences were cited in the 2009 New Zealand Crime and Safety Survey.

[NOTE: Population of New Zealand is 4,391,856 according to the govt stats office.]

About 56 percent of New Zealand adults said they felt “worried about being in a traffic accident caused by a drunk driver, being burgled, having their car deliberately damaged or broken into, and having their credit cards misused.”

Two Frenchmen Killed in NZ, SK Tourist Missing

Posted by te2ataria on December 7, 2010

The 1,978th and 1,979th tourists are killed in New Zealand

Two Young French Kayakers Killed in NZ,  a South Korean Tourist Missing in the Deadly Franz Josef Glacier Valley

The bodies of two young Frenchmen were found floating in Lake Wakatipu (Queenstown).

“The tourists made a panic-stricken call to a commercial tourism operator shortly before 10pm, saying they were in trouble as a 20 knot southerly swept over the lake, generating waves up to a metre high,” according to a report.

However, help was not sent until hours after they had drowned.

The two French tourists were at least the 1,978th and 1,979th tourists killed in New Zealand since January 2000.

Tourism New Zealand is said to be offering a free body bag to the 2000 tourist to be killed in New Zealand.

Meanwhile the police farce say they are looking for a South Korean tourist who went missing in Franz Josef glacier valley last Thursday.

A rental vehicle hired by Ergine Cho, 31, was found in the Franz Josef glacier carpark “that had not moved in days,” according to a report.

The car is parked in the main glacier carpark with foot access to the Franz Josef Glacier Valley and numerous bush walks.

Police said [Mr] Cho who is from Incheon, South Korea, arrived in  New Zealand two weeks ago and is apparently travelling alone.

On average, two foreigners are killed in New Zealand every three days.

At least 1,979 foreign students, tourists and new immigrants have been Killed in NZ between  January 2000 and 6 December 2010

How Many Properties Sold in Christchurch?

Posted by te2ataria on November 8, 2010

New Zealand Buttlines

Property values still sliding

ZERO Properties Sold in Christchurch: Ain’t that surprising!!?

Residential property values continued to decline in October sliding more than 5.5 percent …

“The report did not provide a measure for Canterbury, saying there were too few sales since the magnitude 7.1 earthquake on September 4 to generate a reliable index measure.”

Bacterial infection hits North Island kiwifruit orchard

“The disease, pseudomonas syringae pv actinidiae or PSA, has not appeared in New Zealand before but has had a significant impact on Italian kiwifruit production in recent years.” More…

Company fraud in NZ doubles

“The survey of about 200 groups, in both government and private sector, on both side of the Tasman showed the cost of fraud rose from an average NZ$1.9 million in 2008, to NZ$3.8m this year.”

Genetic link likely in alcoholism, depression

“A Christchurch woman whose parents suffered from alcoholism and whose father also had depression is being treated for both conditions as part of a new study.” More…

Include “Murder,” “Rape” and “Psychopathic Demeanor” in the headline and you’ll find this blog has already highlighted the “missing” link.

Eruption threat real, warns expert

“An eruption is coming, warns GNS Science volcanologist Dr Graham Leonard, and anyone living pretty much north of Wellington should be prepared.”

“The venue is deliberately fitting – the Taupo volcanic zone is the most productive volcanic system on Earth. Eruptions, when they happen, are big.” More …

Better late than never, telling people at least half the story!!

How NZ judges are awarded for perverting justice

Posted by te2ataria on October 24, 2010

Expensive perks for perverting justice

The cost of NZ judges’ perks for perverting justice is TOO HIGH

NZ judges spent about $1 million dollars of public funds on 1st class flights and lavish conferences in 2 years.

The CORRUPT anti-American Chief Justice Dame Sian Elias traveled  first class to 5 destinations in that period, at a cost of about $75,000. She took along her husband, Hugh Fletcher, on two of the all-expense-paid visits.

Here’s the rest of the corrupt NZ judges pigs at the trough story:

Jetting judges fly at taxpayer expense

BY JONATHAN MARSHALL – Sunday Star Times

Globe-trotting judges have clocked up almost $350,000 on international taxpayer-funded travel in the past two years – including business class airfares with their spouses.

Locations travelled to on the Kiwi taxpayer – at a cost of $348,949.53 in the 24-month period ending June this year – include London, New York, Florence, Boston, Tunisia, Denver in Colorado, and Halifax in Nova Scotia.

Chief Justice Dame Sian Elias attended five trips in that period, costing $74,490. On two of them, to Melbourne and London, she took along her husband, Hugh Fletcher.

Elias attended a Council of Chief Justices conference in Adelaide, a Supreme and Federal Court judges conference in Canberra, and a Council of Chief Justices meeting in Melbourne.
