Grave Secrets in the Pike River Mine

Posted by te2ataria on December 17, 2016

Protesters and the gate would remain, for now!

Family members and supporters of the 29 men [murdered] at Pike River in 2010 have blocked the Pike River mine access road for nearly 7 weeks after a landowner gifted them a privately-owned section of the road.

The protesters are blocking the access road to prevent mine owners Solid Energy permanently sealing it with concrete before the drift – a tunnel leading into the mine – is explored.

“However, on Saturday it emerged that a 1992 agreement between Pike River Coal and the landowner over ownership of the access road was never registered on the title.”

The gate and the protesters would stay put, while lawyers for the victims families consider their legal position, said protest leader Bernie Monk.

“We won’t be moving. If we have to leave the gate open we will. But they’ll have to drive across 29 crosses we’ve got on the road.

“We are not letting them seal off a crime site.”

Nurse steals money from elderly patient with dementia

Eva Martha Harrison, 63,  a registered Hamilton nurse stole hundreds of dollars from a rest home patient with dementia.  It’s not known how many other patients the  has ripped off in her 44-year career.

“She was fired from that job in July 2014, one month after the theft. She subsequently applied for a position at the Waikato District Health Board.”

She was employed despite having an array of previous convictions including assault, theft, DUI… In fact, she could have been a mass murderer and still work as a nurse without any hesitation by Waikato District Health Board.

Pigs smash 5,000 vehicles in 5 years!!

Police have spent $11.37m repairing their banged up fleet, in addition to replacing 134 police vehicles that have been written off since June 2011. At least 5,000 incidents were recorded the past five years where a police vehicle crashed or was “deliberately damaged.”

The report does not mention any collusion between the repair centres and police. However, it’s not difficult to read between the lines:

“The most expensive repair job on a police vehicle was a Hyundai H1 iLoad van which had its engine reconditioned for $16,391.

“However once the engine was installed the van suffered a ‘catastrophic failure, causing the engine to seize’, the police report said.

“A replacement engine would have cost $24,000 but instead police chose to write it off.”

Last year there were 1,109 police vehicles requiring repairs, up from 1,047 in 2014, police said.

The total number of vehicles in the New Zealand police fleet is 3150.

DAY 96 of latest TOURISTS or truth? campaign in NZ

Rider seriously injured in Catlins motorbike crash

Woman seriously injured when hit by car in Auckland’s Three Kings suburb

What happened to the other 200 crashes over the past eight days???

Truth hurts New Zealand tourism. The average tourist will not visit this country, if they knew true extent of the daily carnage on our deadly roads. Therefore:

About two-thirds of the road fatalities in New Zealand go unreported by our political police, or unrecorded by Ministry of Transport [“Minitru”.] This week there’s been a near total news censorship…

Censorship, news blackout and disinformation are serious threats to democracy, even one as fake and dysfunctional as ours!

About 2.7 million licensed 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…]

[Heavily Doctored] Motor Vehicle Crashes in New Zealand 2014

  • 268 fatal road crashes
  • 295 deaths
  • 8,614 injury crashes
  • 11,219 people injured

In 2005 there were:

  • 405 deaths
  • 2,531 serious injuries
  • 11,920 less serious injuries

In 2002, according to the official data, there were:

  • 404 deaths
  • 5,200 hospitalisations
  • 14,000 injuries
  • 1.5 deaths per 10,000 vehicles
  • 10 deaths per 100,000 population
  • The cost to the taxpayers was more than $3.5 billion.

Based even on the government’s doctored data, there should be about 25 crashes today, resulting in 31 reportable injuries including 14 hospitalization (8 serious injuries) and at least one fatality.

Police reassurance about Dunedin incidents very disturbing indeed!

Murder victim Karin Ann Ross ‘unfairly taken’ from her children

Dunedin – Ross Creek Sexual Assault: a 23 year-old woman was sexually assaulted [raped] at Ross Creek in Dunedin on Monday, 30 November.  The attacker is described as European, tall, of a skinny build and of an undetermined age. He is believed to have been wearing black shoes, a black t-shirt, and a pair of black ‘Skins’ with white writing.  http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/police-investigating-assault-woman-ross-creek-dunedin

Dunedin – The Strathallan Street homicide: 51 year-old Karin Ann Ross was found dead at a Strathallan St address was Karin Ann Ross of Dunedin, police said.  As a result of the post-mortem and a detailed scene examination, Police have upgraded the investigation to a homicide.  http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/update-strathallan-st-death

Dunedin – Cyclist attacked on Portsmouth Drive:  a 45 year old female was riding her bike on Portsmouth Drive, around the area of The Molars, near the intersection of Strathallan, when she was attacked by a male, police said. The attacker shouted at her before grabbing her bike and punching her approximately four times in the right side of her body. He then threw the female, still on her bike, onto the grass verge of Portsmouth Drive [possibly with the intent to rape her.]  http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/cyclist-attacked-portsmouth-drive-dunedin

The blog issued the following warning yesterday (December 6).

[Warning: Female cyclists in News Zealand are soft targets for rapists.]

The Disturbing Police Reassurance

Inspector Kelvin Lloyd, Acting Area Commander: Otago Coastal, is also aware of the sentiments which are being felt around the Dunedin community.

“I’m aware there are quite a lot of concerned residents across the Dunedin area who are worried about the incidents over the last week. I can’t reiterate enough that we have an experienced and professional group of staff who are working extremely hard to resolve each of these cases.

I can confirm these cases are in no way linked to each other. For operational reasons, and while a homicide investigation is ongoing, I’m not in a position to explain in detail why they’re not linked, but the information police currently have strongly indicates this is the case.”

Mr Lloyd would also like to reassure the community that talks of this being a ‘crime spree’ are unfounded.  http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/update-dunedin-incidents

Decide for yourselves why the police is making the following contradictory statements in the same breath:

  1. “it is unusual for Dunedin to see this type of crime happening within a short period of time”
  2. “these cases are in no way linked to each other”
  3. “talks of this being a ‘crime spree’ are unfounded”

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.
Issued by Noreen Hegarty/Auckland City District/0274 951589

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.

Saturday, 8 August 2015 – 12:25pm – Auckland City

Police are “investigating” the death of a child in Onehunga on Friday morning. They said they were awaiting further test results to establish how the child died.

“Police still have no clue what killed the young girl. The woman who had called police was taken to hospital for treatment of some minor injuries,” according to a report.

“Neighbour Des Gilmore said a mother and her daughter, who were from Malaysia, had lived in the house for about two years and were lovely.”

“They were friends of ours, they went over to Malaysia for a holiday and I haven’t seen them since they got back,” she said. “We’re a close community, we actually looked after her house while she was away.”
