Facebook child rapist gets a laughable sentence

Shaun Hart coerced three [retarded] teenaged girls into sending him naked and semi-clad photos of themselves on Snapchat and Instagram, which he then used to blackmail them into granting sexual favours.

And in the case of his youngest victim – just 13 – that included “taking her virginity”.

Hart, 18, was sentenced to nine years and two months in jail when he appeared [in front of the frigging Justice Paul Davison] at the High Court in Hamilton on Friday on two charges of rape and five of blackmail.

Hart made contact online via Facebook with his first victim – an 18 year old who lives outside of the Waikato.  http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/89528428/Nude-photo-blackmailer-raped-13-year-old

What does the frigging “I” in IPCA stand for?

IPCA finds officer bungled investigation of colleague, but… 

“A Taranaki officer failed to properly investigate a crash involving an off-duty colleague, the Independent Police Conduct Authority (IPCA) has found.”

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.

Major fraud and suspected double murder simply called “alleged conflicts of interest”

Spit in their face: The next time someone says NZ is one of the least corrupt countries…

“Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority’s (CERA) staff employed to bring investment to Christchurch set up their own company through which investors would pay them a fee on private property deals,” according to a Stuff investigation, and this is just tip of the iceberg.

What people are saying about CERA:

Labour leader Andrew Little said: “I cannot believe an arrangement like this – where you have public servants also allowed to operate a private company and further their private interests – was approved and signed off.”

Asked what he thinks about The Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (DPMC) and the State Services Commission (SSC) investigating the private property dealings connected to three former CERA staff [Murray Cleverley, Gerard Gallagher and Simon Nikoloff] Little said SSC and DPMC lacked sufficient investigative powers to conduct an effective inquiry.

“It must be the Auditor-General. The Auditor-General has powers to compel and look not only at what happened with those people and the rest of CERA but what happened at the Minister’s office as well.

“A week after New Zealand is rated top in the world anti-corruption index [George Soros Transparency International -Editor] this is just the stuff that undermines that. If our oversight mechanisms mean this wasn’t picked up then we have some serious work to do.”

Who killed Julian Carver and Michelle Mitchell?

Julian Carver, the former chief information officer at CERA, has died unexpectedly, police said.

Father of two Julian Carver, 44, was the former chief information officer at CERA. He was found dead in  suspicious circumstances, this blog believes, at a psychiatric hospital in Christchurch on January 2, 2017.

32 Foreigners killed in New Zealand in 32 days

Posted by te2ataria on January 25, 2017

Road Toll News Blackout: ONLY one road fatality report allowed today!

Known foreign victims of fatal crashes, drowning, police shooting, NZ tourist deathtraps…

At least 32 foreigners have been killed in New Zealand since December 23, 2016. The fatalities (tip of the iceberg?) have been reported by the police and/or documented by the media, and mirrored on this blog.

American, British, Chinese, Cambodian, Czech, Filipino, German, Greek, Indian, Sri Lankan, Swiss and Tongan nationals are among the known fatalities.

The two foreign employees of XERO, Mykhalo Stepura from Ukraine and Pavel Pazniak from Belarus, whose deaths/murders are still a mystery, were found dead in the Tararua Forest Park on November 22, 2016.

How Many Foreigners Killed in NZ Since 2000?

About 4,000 overseas visitors, international students, foreign workers, recent emigrants and refugees have lost their lives and 24,000 others seriously injured in New Zealand since year 2000. [Updated January 2017]

o0o

“Glorious George” says New Zealand is world’s least corrupt country (again!)

“Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index [#posttruth]” for 2016 has given New Zealand a score of 90 points out of 100, placing it in first spot (shared with Denmark) for the least corrupt out of 176 countries.

And they had the chick to say: “This year’s results highlight the connection between corruption and inequality, which feed off each other to create a vicious circle between corruption, unequal distribution of power in society, and unequal distribution of wealth.”

How could this be???

Transparency International is an illegitimate brainchild of the infamous “bankster” billionaire Mr George Soros.

So, why was French hiker’s death kept secret by New Zealand police?

That’s just the police. Besides, they were only being economical with the truth to protect the tourism industry!!

How valid are reports by the likes of Transparency International…

To give you an idea, World Happiness Report has consistently ranked NZ in the top 10 happiest countries [#fakenews] despite the suicide figures, social inequality, homelessness, abject poverty…

However, Happy Planet Index recently placed our country in 38th spot for HAPPINESS [and gave only 119th ranking for ecological footprint] out of 140 countries.

The two victims were Mykhalo Stepura (also known as Michael Stepura), 39; and Pavel (Paul) Pazniak, 32, police said.

Both men were foreign nationals but were living in New Zealand.  Mr Stepura was originally from the Ukraine, and Mr Pazniak was originally from Belarus. http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/tararua-forest-park-trampers-name-release

Stepura, a “father of two boys,” was a software developer who worked for Xero and lived in Lower Hutt.

“All of us at Xero are deeply saddened by the loss of our teammates, Pavel Pazniak, known to us as Paul, and Mykhalo Stepura, known to us as Michael,” a Xero spokesperson said.

“Our focus is on supporting their families at this difficult time. We are a tight-knit team at Xero and this is a tough time for many of us.

“As well as assisting the families, we are closely supporting our teams.” http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/86785417/Colleagues-devastated-at-death-of-two-men-who-were-tramping-the-Tararua-Ranges

Schlumberger denies responsibility for the dead whales
Schlumberger, the oilfield services company doing seismic surveys of the sea floor near Cook Strait, says they are not responsible to recent whale strandings.

However, Otago University zoologist, Prof. Liz Slooten said the Rabbit Island stranding happened at the time one of the surveys was being conducted off Taranaki, about 60 nautical miles (111km) north of Nelson.

“The whale could have been very close to the air guns and may have suffered physical damage causing temporary or permanent hearing loss. This could have led to the stranding, but only a full autopsy can answer this question,” Slooten said.

‘Sudden Death’ of a Well-liked Doctor

Dr. Chris Cresswell, acting head of Whanganui Hospital’s emergency department, was found dead next to his mountain bike on Saturday.

In September 2015, a senior doctors’ union “condemned an ‘outrageous’ move by Whanganui District Health Board to summon a hospital doctor to a disciplinary meeting over his [Dr Cresswell’s] part in a protest against the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement.”

“He was also politically active and a member of the Green Party. He was a major player in raising awareness of climate change, and publicly opposed and demonstrated against the Trans Pacific Partnership and seabed mining.”

Another Woman Murdered in Wellington

Posted by te2ataria on December 11, 2016

Sent by a reader

Murder victim in Upper Hutt named as Lois Rita Tolley

Wellington murder victim has been named as Lois Rita Tolley, 30. Police say they are continuing their homicide investigation into the incident in Ward Street, Upper Hutt at midnight on Friday 9 December 2016.

“This is an incredibly sad and stressful time for the family who Police are supporting through an incredibly difficult time so close to Christmas. Lois is the youngest of four children and has a number of nephews and nieces and is part of a large family. The family are devastated by this act of violence that has taken their much loved Lois from them.”

Earlier police had said that the victim had been assaulted with a weapon (not a firearm).

However, that’s no longer the case, said Defective Senior Sergeant Warwick McKee, who leads the investigation.

“As a result of fresh evidence Police can advise that we are now looking for a firearm and knife believed to be involved in the death of Lois. Just prior to the incident, at around midnight, four males were seen jogging south along Wilford Street towards Ward Street. One of the males was carrying a long rectangular object. They are described as all about 182cm tall and wearing dark clothing with hooded tops”

Another day, another murder in New Zealand. Lois Rita Tolley, 30, was the victim of New Zealand’s latest murder mystery.

New Zealand’s Latest ‘Murder Mystery’ Duo Were Foreigners

Posted by te2ataria on November 23, 2016

At least three more foreigners killed in New Zealand!

Sent by a reader

Were the two Xero employees murdered because they stumbled on a dark secret?

The investigation into the circumstances surrounding the mystery deaths of two trampers in Tararua Forest Park over the weekend. [But, more likely than not, nothing will come out of it.]

The two victims were Mykhalo Stepura (also known as Michael Stepura), 39; and Pavel (Paul) Pazniak, 32, police said.

Both men were foreign nationals but were living in New Zealand.  Mr Stepura was originally from the Ukraine, and Mr Pazniak was originally from Belarus. http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/tararua-forest-park-trampers-name-release

Stepura, a “father of two boys,” was a software developer who worked for Xero and lived in Lower Hutt.

“All of us at Xero are deeply saddened by the loss of our teammates, Pavel Pazniak, known to us as Paul, and Mykhalo Stepura, known to us as Michael,” a Xero spokesperson said.

“Our focus is on supporting their families at this difficult time. We are a tight-knit team at Xero and this is a tough time for many of us.

“As well as assisting the families, we are closely supporting our teams.” http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/86785417/Colleagues-devastated-at-death-of-two-men-who-were-tramping-the-Tararua-Ranges

Founded in 2006 in New Zealand, Xero describes itself as “one of the fastest growing Software as a Service companies globally.”

Burnt Alive: Brisbane Indian bus driver killed in racist attack

A young Indian migrant, working as a bus driver in Australia, was burnt alive after being doused with a flammable liquid and set on fire at a bus stop in Brisbane.

29-year-old Manmeet Alisher was popular within the Punjabi community in Australia as a known singer and a showbiz promoter, said a report. Photo taken in or about May 2016.

The bus, carrying six passengers, pulled into Moorvale Shopping Centre on Beaudesert Road to pick up three passengers at about 9am, Queensland Police Superintendent Jim Keogh said.

“At that time one of the passengers entered onto the bus and poured a flammable liquid onto the driver and subsequently the driver was set alight and is now deceased,” he said.

“The fire was substantial, he would have stood little chance. The other passengers are lucky to have escaped with minor injuries.”
