NZ Police and Ministry of Resurrection Watch: Censorship breaking all time records!

Proudly Killed in NZ: But how many actually killed on NZ roads this year so far?

  • No. of fatalities reported by police: ONLY 100 [Includes unofficial data for two regions provided by a police insider.]
  • Official No. of crash victims: ONLY 50  as of Friday, Feb. 18, 2019 [UPDATED]
  • Confirmed total of the road dead statistically resurrected by Ministry of Transport: 100 – 50 = 50 [using police data]

Monitor the Ministry of Resurrection’s road fatality updates and calculate the number of resurrections daily at https://www.transport.govt.nz AND https://www.transport.govt.nz/mot-resources/road-safety-resources/road-deaths/

. . . or by crook: Police keeping road fatalities down by not reporting any!

Posted by te2ataria on December 1, 2018

 

THE EVIDENCE IS INCONTROVERTIBLE, BUT NZ MEDIA PLAYING IT DUMB


W A R N I N G !

SEVERE Karmic Booms Striking Apartheid, Morally Repugnant NZ!
Major Disasters Looming!

♠ ♠

The dead on the run: Now you see them, now you don’t!

NZ government (police and Ministry of Resurrection) under-report road fatalities in the same way Puerto Rican officials (US Govt) misled the world following Hurricane Maria. Death toll from the destructive storm was reported at only 64, instead of the scientifically researched total of 2,975.

In NZ, about two-thirds of road fatalities go unreported, or unrecorded by the authorities to protect the cutthroat tourism and banking! [See blog entries under Ministry of Resurrection.]
See also: Police censorship produces NZ’s “lowest murder rate in decades”

♠ ♠

NZ Police Watch: No road fatality reported by police today, either!

Proudly Killed in NZ: But How Many?

At least 15 fatalities have occurred on NZ roads since Wednesday, but only five have been reported by police (five fatalities reported by police, four additional deaths confirmed by a police inside). Of those fatalities, however, only three were recorded by Ministry of Transport Resurrection.

How many actually killed on NZ roads this year so far?

  • Actual road toll for 2018 so far: 1,023 [Based on the blog’s advanced statistical models and backed by other resources – margin of error: ±3 per cent.]
  • No. of fatalities reported by police: ONLY 693  [Includes unofficial data for two regions provided by a police insider.]
  • Official No. of crash victims: ONLY 344 as of Dec. 1, 2018 [No. unchanged since Nov. 29 despite at least seven additional road fatalities]
  • No of dead statistically resurrected by Ministry of Transport: 693 – 344 = 349

Monitor the Ministry of Resurrection’s road fatality updates and calculate the number of resurrection’s daily at https://www.transport.govt.nz

Based on insider information, statistical models and local news, we believe about 900 people were killed and more than 18,000 others injured on NZ suicide roads in 2017; however, only 380 fatalities were reported by police last year. [See blog content.]

Medical Miracle, Malicious MENDACITY, or Govt Disinformation?

Of an estimated 3,000 people who received near-fatal, critical, or serious injuries on New Zealand roads in 2017, only a handful died from their injuries, according to NZ police reports, or lack thereof.

[Check your local hospital and see how many of the critically injured are hospitalized on any given day. But will they let you check the hospital morgue?]

Another overseas visitor ‘road-murdered’ in NZ

Posted by te2ataria on November 1, 2015

This post was updated with additional weekend road-murders added on 2 November 2015.

Road-murdered in New Zealand

This blog has adopted the term “road-murder” to describe the demise of inordinate numbers of people killed on NZ roads. Most of the fatal crashes occur as a result of one or more of the following factors:

  • Motor vehicles unworthy to be on the roads,
  • Poorly designed and shabbily constructed roads, and/or
  • Collisions caused by others driving under the influence.

[A tiny percentage of fatal collisions in New Zealand are caused by overseas visitors due to  unfamiliarity with the road system (driving on the left), defective rental cars, or jet lag and travel fatigue.]

————————

Interpol to locate next of kin following fatal crash near Auckland

The young man, said to be aged in his early twenties, who was killed in a fatal crash on Auckland’s Southern Motorway on Friday has been identified and Police are now trying to make contact with his next-of-kin overseas.

Police have contacted Interpol to locate and advise the victim’s family [possibly in Italy.]

The young man’s name is not expected to be released today, police said.  http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/enquiries-underway-interpol-locate-and-advise-next-kin-following-fatal-crash-overnight
