Sex for a place to sleep in Dunedin

Posted by te2ataria on May 28, 2016

What housing crisis?

“Dunedin’s ‘dire’ housing situation is forcing some at-risk youth to engage in prostitution to get a place to sleep, or to sleep rough in cars, a Methodist Mission survey has revealed.

“Eleven of the 300 at-risk youth (aged between 16 and 20) who responded to the survey said they had engaged in prostitution for the ‘primary purpose of accommodation’.”

Mirror Services director Deb Fraser said a substantial number of its youth clients faced the prospect of homelessness.

“The young people who access our service already have many vulnerabilities due to their illnesses, histories (often traumatic) and other difficult social dynamics.”

“In our experience a substantial number of our young people often face homelessness or are in substandard or socially compromised living situations because of these vulnerabilities which then has escalating impacts for all manner of harm.”

Mr McLauchlan said boarding houses often put teenagers, particularly young women, at more risk.

“In many cases we are talking about youth living with majorly dysfunctional people and that can be an incredibly unhealthy environment for them to be in.

“They are reporting feeling unsafe, being assaulted, a lot of them are self-harming.”

Much of the accommodation on offer to at-risk youth was better suited to older men, he said.

“If you are a young woman there are very few temporary options.”

Housing Minister ‘social cleansing’ Auckland

Posted by te2ataria on May 25, 2016

 Another American woman killed in a car crash

Foreword: There’s no crisis in New Zealand, social, housing, or otherwise, that money couldn’t solve, at least temporarily.

Homeless could be offered up to $5000 to leave Auckland: Paula Bennett

Up to 250 homeless families could be offered as much (!) as  $5,000 to leave Auckland, Social Housing Minister Paula Bennett has confirmed.

“I would say to those that are homeless that there is a chance that they could get a house in days if they were willing to look outside of Auckland.” [Out of sight, out of mind…]

The relocation policy was “one that I had thought of [all by myself] in the last week”, she said. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11644665

Helen [Crooked] Clark denies the truth in Foreign Policy article

[Do you believe Helen Clark, Tony Blair, or Donald Trump!?] The former New Zealand Prime Minister [the most heinous] Helen Clark has denied allegations in Foreign Policy article that she retaliated against a critical investigation of the [Clark-and-the-likes-infested] United Nations by driving one of the investigators out of their job are “totally fabricated”.

She has also dismissed other revelations in a Foreign Policy article published Tuesday as being  made up. [Everyone is lying, except for the Crooked Clark, of course.]

Clark’s seven-year tenure in charge of the UN Development Programme (UNDP) had “left a trail of embittered peers and subordinates”, Foreign Policy said. Her UN colleagues had accused of her of “ruthlessly ending the careers of underlings in her quest to advance her candidacy and of undercutting the UN’s promotion of human rights”.

The most serious allegation was that Clark’s senior staff had forced out American-Swedish UN official Lena Sinha after she had participated in an investigation which was critical of the UNDP’s response to mass atrocities in Sri Lanka.

The investigation, called the Petrie Report, criticised senior members of Clark’s agency, saying that they had downplayed the Sri Lankan Government’s role in killing thousands of Tamils.

After the report was completed, Lena Sinha, who had held a position at the UNDP for 15 years, was told she would “never work for the UNDP again”, according to Foreign Policy. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11644241

U.N. Secretary-General Front-Runner Faces Internal Uproar

More than four years ago, Sinha was appointed to serve as chief of staff on a high-profile panel producing a report on the mass atrocities in Sri Lanka. The Petrie report — named after the lead author, Charles Petrie, a former U.N. official and occasional advisor to the U.N. chief — provided a damning account of the U.N.’s “systemic failure” to advocate for the protection of hundreds of thousands of Tamils caught in the line of fire in the final months of the country’s brutal civil war in 2009. It criticized senior officials in New York, as well as UNDP’s leadership team in Colombo, charging they routinely downplayed the extent of the Sri Lankan government’s complicity in killing the vast majority of the more than 70,000 civilians who died in indiscriminate shelling. The U.N. team in Sri Lanka “did not perceive the prevention of killing of civilians as their responsibility — and agency and department heads at UNHQ were not instructing them otherwise,” according to the Petrie report.

Body found in van [neither suspicious, nor unexplained by Auckland standards]

A body has been found in a van in south Auckland at 7.40am this morning.

Police are said to be “inquiring into whether the death is suspicious” and whether it will be referred to the coroner. [NOTE: The writer, Catherine Gaffaney, who is a general reporter based in Auckland, is clearly implying there would be instances where the deaths would NOT be referred to the coroner!]

American volunteer dies after crash in Napier

A 24-year-old American woman who died after a Hawke’s Bay road crash yesterday was a volunteer worker at Hohepa school for children with intellectual disabilities south of Napier.

She received critical injuries in the two-car crash on Tuesday morning and died in Hawke’s Bay Hospital later.

The victim, who had only recently begun a 12-month volunteer stint at the organisation, has been  described as “a ray of sunshine” by Hohepa general manager.

About 900 people are killed on NZ roads each year [Blog estimate]

The State’s other Stinking Secrets

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 160 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 368 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.

Child-rape sentence: “absolute mockery” of the judicial system

A victim rights group has condemned a sentence handed down by a [deranged] judge to a Northland man for raping a 3-year-old girl and giving her a sexually-transmitted disease.

Sensible Sentencing Trust spokesman Scott Guthrie said a weak sentence handed down for such a heinous crime by [Frigging] Judge Duncan Harvey made an “absolute mockery” of the judicial system.

“One minute Judge Harvey states this offender is among the worst of his kind and next minute he is giving him a discount for being helpful. What about the victim and the victim’s family? What about justice for the community and keeping the community safe?”

“People are being murdered, raped and pillaged because of the horrific drug use that now seems to be a part of our daily life. This case once again exposes the folly of having a justice system that is excessively offender-friendly and ignorant of the ramifications to the victim and wider community,” Guthrie said.

NZ a world leader in dealing with homelessness (!)

Fourth homeless man killed violently in Auckland

[Note: the victim wasn’t struck by an invisible bolt of lightning and did NOT die of a “Sudden Death”, despite the police report. He died in Auckland Hospital several hours after being badly bashed. Moderator D.H.]

Auckland City Police say they are investigating the “Sudden Death” of a man who is believed to have been assaulted in Outhwaite Park, Grafton, Tuesday night.

The police report reads:

Sudden death investigation

Wednesday, 11 November 2015 – 9:11am
National News

Auckland City Police are investigating the “Sudden Death” of a man who is believed to have been assaulted in Outhwaite Park, Grafton, sometime between 6.30pm and 10.3pm last night.

The man was taken to Auckland Hospital late last night but was pronounced dead a short time later.

One man has been arrested in relation to the death and will appear in the Auckland District Court today charged with assault.

Investigating officers are at Outhwaite Park where a scene examination is being carried out.

Detective Inspector Kevin Hooper says anyone with information about the circumstances leading up to the man’s death should contact Auckland City CIB.
ENDS
Issued by Noreen Hegarty/Auckland City District/0274 951589
http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/sudden-death-investigation

Police also called the murder as “Unexplained Death” in another  bulletin. http://www.police.govt.nz/news/updates/39545
At least we now know the terms “Unexplained Death” and “Sudden Death” actually mean “murder” that the lazy police are too reluctant to investigate.

Three other recent violent deaths of the homeless include:

  • Steven Harris, 54, was stabbed to death by his homeless friend Grenville Fahey, 49, in Auckland City’s Myers Park following an argument.  [This place isn’t big enough…?]
  • Edwin Linder, 42, died in Auckland Hospital after being beaten up in a central Auckland alley by Steven Churchis, 18, who had also been living rough on the streets.
  • Maqbool Hussain, 49,  was beaten and stabbed to death in a temporary squat in Balmoral, a suburb of Auckland, by Justin Vance Turner, 29, who was reportedly enraged that Hussain was sleeping rough.

Maqbool Hussain, 49 (pictured above with his daughter, a decade ago), was beaten to death in a temporary squat on Halston Rd, Balmoral. He was originally from Pakistan and came to New Zealand in 1992. He lived in Mt Roskill with his daughter and wife and worked as a taxi driver. “He belonged to good and well-to-do family in Pakistan.” Pakistan Association of New Zealand president said.
