Police compiling “Soviet-style” electronic dossiers on protesters

“Many people would want to know why they are taking photos,” said Green MP Gareth Hughes, who was at the protest organised by climate group 350 Aotearoa, adding that had never before seen police taking pictures of protesters at Parliament.

“Human rights lawyer Michael Bott said there would be cause for concern if police were compiling Soviet-style electronic dossiers on protesters, which had the potential to erode the freedom to protest protected under the Bill of Rights Act,” said a report.

Longer jail sentence for smoking, than for murdering a neighbour in NZ

Posted by te2ataria on May 29, 2017

Sent by a reader

IF only the military taught them common sense and respect for the rules…

Former soldier jailed for smoking on flight from UK to Egypt has sentence doubled to almost TEN YEARS.

UK Court of appeal had ruled John Cox’s original sentence was unduly lenient after he started a blaze in a toilet bin on a Monarch Airlines flight from Birmingham to Sharm el-Sheikh in 2015, said a report.

John Cox, 46, was initially sentenced to four-and-a-half years after admitting committing arson during a Monarch flight from Birmingham to Sharm el-Sheikh in 2015.

“To throw a cigarette butt into a wastepaper bin without ensuring it is extinguished would show a high degree of recklessness,” the judge said.

“On an aircraft at 33,000 ft, the conduct comes perilously close to deliberate fire-setting.”

Christchurch dairy robbed 9 times in 7 months

“The fastest growing crime in the country”

More armed robberies occurring in New Zealand than in…, well, any other country we hear about.

The Indian co-owner of a dairy in Woolston, Christchurch that has been robbed nine times in the last seven months says employees are now too scared to work at night.

 

 

In March RNZ reported a Night n’ Day store 160m away had been robbed eight times in seven months.

Meanwhile, police claim they are investigating whether three ram raid burglaries in three weeks in Christchurch are linked.

“Thieves reversed a stolen car through the doors of Henry’s liquor store on Yaldhurst Rd at 2.20am on Monday, making off with an unknown amount of alcohol and causing extensive damage to the store.

“It was the third early-morning ram raid burglary in as many weeks. On May 14, a car was reversed into Jemmett’s Power Tool Service in Hornby and thousands of dollars of tools were taken. Less than 24 hours later, a car yanked the doors off Peaches & Cream on Colombo St on May 15 and cash was taken.”

Re-selling Stolen Cigarettes?

Counties Manukau Area Commander Dave Glossover said, “active investigations” were under way into several dairies suspected of re-selling stolen tobacco, which he called the fastest growing crime in the country.

“Some of the dairy owners we deal with are saying they have been offered cigarettes,” he said.

  • No vehicle related fatality reports allowed by police on Friday, as of posting, despite multiple serious crashes.
  • Only two vehicle-related fatality reports allowed by police on Thursday, including a “carry over”, despite more than a dozen serious crashes.
  • At least five foreigners have been killed in vehicle-related crashes in New Zealand over the past few days. The fatalities include two Singapore nationals, two Samoans and one Aussie.
  • Based on insider information, statistical models and local news, We believe about 900 people were killed and 8,000 others seriously/critically injured on NZ suicide roads in 2016; however, only 328 fatalities were reported last year.

Young, attractive Indian woman found dead in “mysterious circumstances” in South Auckland

Gurpreet Kaur, 26, who was born in India, was found dead under “mysterious circumstances” at her workplace, a private IT company in Manurewa, South Auckland on Wednesday, May 10.

RIP. Gurpreet Kaur, 26, was found dead in mysterious circumstances at her workplace, a private IT company, in Manurewa, South Auckland on Wednesday, May 10. She . Photo: Supplied/via indianweekender.co.nz

.

Her employer reportedly found her body with injury marks on her neck and called the police. The body was sent for post-mortem and the case has now been referred to the coroner.

Gurpreet was born in Punjab, India and married in 2014, “and her husband joined her in New Zealand only six months ago,” a report said.

She lived with her husband and mother-in-law, who are “in a state of shock and unable to talk to anyone,” NZ Sikh Society has said.

It’s unclear at this stage, whether her death is related to other IT workers found dead in New Zealand since last year.

Coincidentally, she was the second Indian Woman called “Gurpreet Kaur” to be murdered [or found dead] in NZ in just over a year.

Appeal denied for man who murdered Auckland woman Gurpreet Kaur

A young, pregnant woman, also called “Gurpreet Kaur”, was murdered in April 2016. The 22-year-old victim was stabbed 20 times by her partner, a report said.

“According to the Court of Appeal judgment, [her 24 year-old partner who was simply named] Akash was under the influence of methamphetamine when Kaur told him in April 2016 she wanted to break off their 12-month relationship, and that the baby she was carrying was not his.”

Magnitude 4.5 quake hit at 7:53:50 pm today, at a depth of 37km, about 10 km north-west of Blenheim, with 3,076 felt reports received from around the country, as of posting, according to Geonet website.

Police Road Fatality Reports: Extreme Censorship in Effect to “Compensate” for last Saturday’s quintuple “road murders”

  • No road fatality report allowed by police today (Saturday), as of posting, despite at least eight serious crashes that have been reported locally.
  • ONLY  four fatalities reports have been allowed since last Saturday’s quintuple road kills.

-oo-8-oo-

What’s the best thing that could happen to New Zealand government?

What are the alternatives for a seat of government, if catastrophic earthquakes hit Wellington, Auckland, Christchurch, and six to nine other cities, in a short period of time?

“The cost of repairing Wellington after an earthquake similar in magnitude to the one that struck Christchurch in 2011 would be at least $26 billion,” according to a report jointly prepared by Deloitt and a dilettante engineering firm.

However, the report conveniently leaves out two vital questions:

  1. What if the quake was two or more orders of magnitude larger than the 2011 Christchurch Earthquake?
  2. What if more than one mega quake razed Wellington and as many as nine other New Zealand cities within a short period of time?

“My understanding is that if it was that big an event, if the Hikurangi Trench ruptured, then Wellington wouldn’t be the only place affected. It would be a national emergency,” said Former Wellington mayor Fran Wilde.

Correction: Young couple from Singapore killed in record time on NZ death roads

The victims, believed to by Dutch tourists [unconfirmed,] were killed in a head-on crash between a Jucy rental van and an ute on State Highway 1, south of Dunsandel, about 40km south of Christchurch just after 1pm on Thursday.

The victims, aged in their mid 20s to early 30s, are said to have arrived in New Zealand about two hours earlier.

Driver of the other vehicle has sustained non-life threatening injuries.

At least two people killed on the same spot four years ago, fate of other victims unknown
Gaurav Bhabhera, aged 28, an Indian national, and Marae Judy Dean, aged 52, of Ashburton, driver of the second vehicle involved in the head-on crash were killed. Mr Bhabhera’s wife, Jaina Bhabhera, remained in a critical condition in Christchurch Hospital’s intensive care unit, some three days after the crash. Her fate is currently unknown.

Police implicitly accused the Indian victim of making the exact same mistake: “Sergeant Jones says Police are not speculating on the cause of the crash at this stage, but investigations are looking at possible contributing factors including unfamiliarity with conditions and driver distraction.”  http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/names-bankside-crash-victims-released

Gaurav Bhabhera, aged 28, an Indian national, and Marae Judy Dean, aged 52, of Ashburton, driver of the second vehicle involved in the head-on crash, were killed. Mr Bhabhera’s wife, Jaina Bhabhera, remained in a critical condition in Christchurch Hospital’s intensive care unit, some three days after the crash. Her fate is currently unknown.

 

Tourist Death Record
The previous “death record” was held by a French national, Remi Morilleau, 27, who was killed in a three-car crash in Northland on Christmas Day just hours after arriving in New Zealand.

“The tourist’s partner and the driver of another car suffered serious injuries and two children were treated for minor injuries after the crash on State Highway 1 near Whangarei about 6.45pm on Christmas Day,” according to a report.

The French couple had been in NZ for about 4 hours, driving just 160km from Auckland airport.

But the whole thing was a waste of time because “IPCA did not find any evidence that suggested the investigating officer’s decisions were made as a result of bias or favouritism towards the off-duty officer,” the Acting Central District Commander Infector Stewart was quoted as saying.

Christchurch: Another failed city

Crime surges across Canterbury

Statistics released to Labour through the Official Information Act indicate a crime surge in the region over the past two years.

[WTF: Even the ‘cooked’ statistics are only available through the Official Information Act ??? ]

Police admit they have no coherent idea how to prevent crime or eliminate the cause of it.

In the last two years the crime rates have surged by [at least] the following amounts:

Drug use: UP 36 per cent
Burglary: UP 33 per cent
Vehicle theft: UP 26 per
Public place assaults: UP 13 per cent
Rape: UP [records are most probably destroyed]

Police foot patrols: DOWN 16 per cent

Police Minister Judith ‘Crusher’ Collins insists foot patrols are not the only means of preventative actions taken by police to combat crime. [The fact that the system has completely failed… why am I still the frigging Police Minister… Then again, it’s the government policy not to give a fuck…]

Collins acknowledged current crime numbers were a concern and said police were “working hard to turn these figures around [one way, or another.]”

Christchurch judge accuses Government of breaching child’s rights

A 15-year-old boy has spent a sixth day in solitary confinement in Christchurch’s police cells because there is nowhere else to put him.

A judge has lashed out at the Government for its handling of the teen’s situation, accusing it of breaching the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The accusation came after a Youth Court sitting in Christchurch on Monday, where the 15-year-old was remanded in custody in police cells for a sixth day.

Judge Robert Murfitt said the boy was being held in solitary confinement because there was nowhere else to put him following the mothballing of a wing at Christchurch’s youth justice facility, Te Puna Wai.   http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/86951169/christchurch-judge-accuses-government-of-breaching-childs-rights

‘Severe’ earthquake rocks Canterbury

Canterbury was rocked by a “severe” earthquake measuring 5.7 magnitude, centred 20 kilometres southeast of Culverden at a depth of 7km.

“While the quake was centred approximately 100km north of Christchurch, many “extreme” felt reports were logged by those in the city. It was felt as far afield as Invercargill and Auckland.” http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/86758316/Canterbury-shaken-by-severe-earthquake

Latest disinformation on foreign home buyers (as usual)

Posted by te2ataria on November 17, 2016

REMEMBER: BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO EVIL PEOPLE!

Sent by a reader, edited by DH

Latest disinformation on the share of New Zealand homes being bought by foreigners

Foreign buyers bought only 2.65 per cent of NZ  homes, according to the latest disinformation released by Land Information New Zealand (LINZ).

  • Only 1,431 out of 53,991 residential properties (2.65%) were bought by people with overseas tax residency.
  • The data is FALSE because it counts all corporations and trusts as New Zealand residents.
  • Foreign students and temporary workers, a very large number of whom are proxy/ surrogate buyers, are classified as residents, even if they do not intend to occupy the property or stay in NZ.
  • Chinese tax residents bought 372 out of 648 (57 per cent) of the homes sold in Auckland in the last quarter (July – September).

Not just gays to blame for quake, says Brian Tamaki, but all ‘extra-sexual behaviour’

“Brian Tamaki has defended saying that gays, sinners and murders are responsible for earthquakes, saying he actually meant anybody indulging in illicit sexual behaviour, adultery, child abuse and more,” said a report.

“It’s about adultery, morality, it’s about any type of extra-sexual behaviour,” Tamaki has told Willie Jackson in an interview on RadioLive.

Meanwhile, John Key called Tamaki’s comments “ridiculous“.

“Look, you always get people coming out with these stupid statements.”

“It’s nothing to do with people’s sexuality. I mean, it’s just madness.”

“Utter Devastation” Caused by Kaikoura Earthquake

Posted by te2ataria on November 15, 2016

The cost of Kaikoura Earthquake is expected to top 2 billion dollars

Up to a hundred thousand landslides, including numerous dams, are thought to have formed as a result of earthquake.

Powerful aftershocks continue to plague the disaster areas.

A similar size quake striking Central Auckland could kill at least 100,000 people and inflict $300 billion in damage to property and infrastructure.

As if by a massive irony, your most populated cities are situated right above geological nightmares–a fact that your government scientists don’t know, or won’t tell you.

Our advice to YOU and all intelligent people in Wellington area
1. There’s a frighteningly large buildup of tectonic stress energy right under your feet.
2. RUN while you’re still alive, before the next exodus bottleneck makes it impossible to flee the danger zone.

A Warning to Visitors to New Zealand:

Climatological and Geological Warning! The New Zealand region is about to experience significant climatological events and large-scale geological and tectonic activity over an extensive period of time. Would be visitors are advised to stay out of the area for the foreseeable future.

Will a magnitude 9.8 (MW) earthquake centered at 42° 00′ 59″ [42.016389°] South, 175° 05′ 07″[175.085278°] East herald the end of New Zealand Islands?

Sunday’s massive quake occurred at 42.757°S, 173.077°E, or about 184km away. Watch this space!
