Young victim in a coma because of police pursuit?

Was police chasing “hit-and-run driver” when victim was hit?

A 61-year-old driver has been arrested over an alleged hit-and-run in Whanganui early this morning. The victim, Jesse Minnell, 24, was said to be in a critical/ serious condition.

How Did the Crash Happen?

Police have alleged that they were dealing with a pub fight outside the Red Lion Inn on Anzac Parade when a car swerved into the crowd and hit 24-year-old Jesse Minnell, around 2.20am. However, the nearby residents had heard nothing about the alleged brawl.

The driver is said to have left the scene in a late-model dark-blue BMW, without the police, or anyone else, noticing the licence plates!!

“Detective Senior Sergeant Neil Forlong said earlier that, while police had been at the scene at the time, they did not manage to get a licence plate number for the offending car.”

Mr Minnell’s mother and father were with him in the hospital, where they said he had been in an induced coma with bleeding in two parts of the brain.

He was earlier described as being in a critical condition.

Family friend Des Attwell told RNZ he thought the officers at the scene should have been able to get the licence plate number.

“Just sounds like very poor training to me. I mean, it’s seems like a simple procedure – if you’re pursuing a car, what’s the first thing you do? See what the number plate is, call it in. It seems somewhat remiss.”

The police were not responding to Mr Attwell’s criticism, but confirmed officers were being questioned as witnesses.

What Pub Brawl???

A manager at the Red Lion Inn said they did not want to comment.

Mike Woodhead, the owner-operator at a nearby Four Square supermarket, said he had been talking to a witness who was “shaken” from the incident.

Woodhead arrived at work at 4.45am on Saturday to find Anzac Parade had been closed off. “There were no police. It was just the security and the road workers closing the road.”

While serving customers in the morning, Woodhead said he talked to a person who witnessed the events outside the Red Lion Inn.

“I know one guy who saw it and he was a bit upset by it all. He was a bit shaken up.”

He said most neighbours he had talked to in the area had not heard any commotion during the early hours of the morning.

Life made to be so worthless and trivial in “God’s Own Country”

Posted by te2ataria on January 16, 2016

New Zealand’s Death Sheet 2015  (population: 4,596,700)

Note: nearly all of the following figures released by government agencies have been doctored to make the country look “normal”, or just like any other country.

Provisional 2015 road toll as doctored by the authorities: 320 (actual figure: many, many more deaths)

Suicide figures: 2013 data

In 2013, a total of 508 people (365 males and 143 females) committed suicide in New Zealand. This equates to an age-standardised rate of 11.0 deaths per 100,000 population.  http://www.health.govt.nz/publication/suicide-facts-2013-data  (Blog estimate: at least 900 deaths)

Drowning deaths: 100 (actual figure: probably as many as 180 deaths)

No. of people killed by trains: About three or four peopleper week?

Work related incidents:

Recently released figures show in the past financial year WorkSafe began 724 investigations and, at any one time, between 270 and 280 in progress. http://www.business.govt.nz/worksafe/about/publications/documents/annual-report-2014-2015.pdf/

It is estimated that 600 to 900 people die prematurely each year from diseases caused by longterm workplace exposures. Asbestos is a big contributor; fatality estimates vary from 170 to 300 people per year. (Blog fatality estimate: 1,800 to 2,200)

NZ has the highest rates of cancer deaths in the world (with melanoma included)

Cancer is the country’s single biggest cause of death. Most New Zealanders will have some experience of it – either personally or through a relative or friend. http://www.health.govt.nz/your-health/conditions-and-treatments/diseases-and-illnesses/cancer

At least 22,000 cases of cancer were recorded in New Zealand last year, according to Cancer Society. https://cancernz.org.nz/

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in New Zealand. New Zealand has the highest rates of melanoma in the world. In 2012, at least 486 New Zealanders died from skin cancer including 354 from melanoma. http://www.health.govt.nz/your-health/conditions-and-treatments/diseases-and-illnesses/melanoma

(Actual figures? Ask around. You’d be horrified/shocked/surprised to learn the truth. Also, the number of visitors who developed melanoma as a result of staying in New Zealand is NOT known.)

Bowel cancer, also called colon, rectal or colorectal cancer, is the second highest cause of cancer death in New Zealand. In 2011, at least 3,030 people were diagnosed with bowel cancer and 1,191 died from the disease. (Blog estimate: 1,500 – 1,700 deaths.)

Breast cancer is New Zealand’s third most common cancer and accounts for more than 600 deaths every year. (Blog estimate: 900 – 1,200 deaths.)

In New Zealand, about 160 women develop cervical cancer each year – and about 50 die from it. (Blog estimate: 300 – 350 deaths)

Lung cancer is the biggest cause of cancer deaths in New Zealand. It has low survival rates; just 10 per cent of people diagnosed with lung cancer survive beyond five years of diagnosis.

Around 5,000 people die each year in New Zealand because of smoking or second-hand smoke exposure.  http://www.stats.govt.nz/browse_for_stats/snapshots-of-nz/nz-social-indicators/Home/Health/tobacco-smoking.aspx

Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in New Zealand. In 2011, a total of 3,023 new cases of prostate cancer were found, and 585 men died from the disease.  (Blog estimate: 1,600 – 1,900 deaths.)

Blog estimates are based on figures provided by WHO as well as several other sources.

More govt. stats 2014 – (population: 4,509,900)
Births and Deaths: Year ended December 2014 (latest available as of publication)
57,242 live births and 31,063 deaths were registered in New Zealand, resulting in a natural increase (live births minus deaths) of 26,179.
There were 1,475 fewer births and 1,495 more deaths compared with 2013. http://www.stats.govt.nz/browse_for_stats/population/births/BirthsAndDeaths_HOTPYeDec14.aspx

As for the God’s Own Country, it is a phrase first used to describe the Wicklow Mountains in Ireland and has since been repeatedly abused to refer to many other places from Australia to United States, including Kerala state (India), Cornwall, Surrey, Yorkshire (England), Scotland, Wales and of course New Zealand. The phrase has been abbreviated to Godzone and sometimes Godzown.
