When will drowning stats become a state secret, like the road toll, no. of foreigners killed…

Posted by te2ataria on February 7, 2017

At least seven people killed by drowning over Waitangi weekend

At least one death was negligent homicide

Bay of Plenty of Deaths

Woman drowned in the Waikato River after gates of the Aratiatia Dam were opened yesterday. The victim, most probably an overseas visitor, “was swept away yesterday when spillwater from the Mercury Energy-owned dam, near Taupo, surged down the Waikato River, and her body was found this morning,” said a report.

“Mercury Energy Chief Executive Fraser Whineray said the power company was reviewing the warning signs and procedures in the area to see if any improvements could be made,” said the report.

“We’ll be … checking to see if there’s anything further that can be done to minimise the risk, but we’d really ask, please, if people can not be down in the rapids area because it can be very dangerous when those spillways are open.”

Adding insult to injury, in the time-honoured Kiwi tradition, Taupo mayor said locals tended to stay away from the area on the Waikato River where the woman drowned.

Judge Allan Roberts F**KS UP again

Posted by te2ataria on April 22, 2016

ONLY home detention for mechanic who issued fake warrants of fitness

Car mechanic Jeremy Burrell has been put on home detention for issuing illegal warrants of fitness.

He issued the warrants using documents from his employer and entered them into the NZ Transport Agency website.

He was sentenced to four months home detention and 150 hours community work in the Christchurch District Court on Friday.

“Judge Allan Roberts told Burrell that his offending had undermined a system that was meant to ensure only roadworthy vehicles were driven on the roads.” http://www.stuff.co.nz/motoring/79232747/Home-detention-for-mechanic-who-issued-fake-warrants-of-fitness

Blog moderators tell Judge Allan [F**K-UP] Roberts that his sentencing is undermining “a system that was meant to ensure” public safety by keeping the criminals locked up.

In 2011, the blog co-moderator te2ataria said:

Top 3 in New Zealand: methamphetamine, gang rapes and road-murders

Posted by te2ataria on March 6, 2016

‘More Marlborough home buyers requesting methamphetamine test before sale’

Just how much meth are we producing, importing and taking in this country?

“At that stage people didn’t really know about meth. Every six weeks he’d sort of convulse in the corner of the room. The hospital didn’t know what was wrong with him.”

Homes affected with methamphetamine were a serious heath risk to tenants, and absorbent materials like carpet could retain a potent level of the drug, Brereton said.

“The impact on the home is very real,” he said.

“If you’ve got newborn kids crawling round, it can make them very sick very quick. It’s quite a frightening problem.”  http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/77546716/More-Marlborough-home-buyers-requesting-methamphetamine-test-before-sale

Massive amounts of methamphetamine and dextromethamphetamine are trafficked and sold in this country as more and more people use them for their aphrodisiac and euphoriant properties.

Methamphetamine use also has a high association with anxiety, depression, methamphetamine psychosis, suicide, and violent behaviors, experts say.

Many road fatalities are routinely reported as road injuries, while others go reported…

On average, 2.2 people are killed on New Zealand roads each day and about 10 others injured.

  1. Only high-profile fatalities are reported in NZ.
  2. Many road fatalities are routinely reported as road injuries.
  3. A proportion of road fatalities go unreported, where possible.
  4. Fate of the crash victims are closely guarded as a “state secret”.

Corrupt government, malignant police force…

Posted by te2ataria on February 2, 2016

sent by a reader

Police minister, union back deadly chase policy… naturally!

Both the gatekeeper police minister and the rotten police union have backed the deadly car pursuit policy that has left three teenagers dead, a fourth in a coma, and at least three others seriously injured in two chases within 7 days.

“Police Minister Judith Collins backed the officers involved in the incident,” she said, “it’s the people driving dangerously who are at fault,” according to a report.

“It’s very important that police don’t give over the roads to people who steal cars and then drive dangerously and put everyone’s lives at risk, including their own,” she told RNZ.

[The act of driving dangerously and causing road fatalities should be left to police drivers.]

What do the experts say?

Safety campaigner Clive Matthew-Wilson, who edits the car review website, dogandlemon.com, also wants the police to abandon most car chases.

“Comments by the police minister, that young people need to be reminded of the devastating consequences of fleeing police, suggest the minister doesn’t understand basic medical science.”

“These are kids. They don’t think; that’s the point; their brains haven’t developed sufficiently to make rational decisions.”

“Young drivers who try and flee police get a rush of adrenaline and just take off at high speed. However, the police who are pursuing a fleeing car shouldn’t allow a similar rush of adrenaline to replace their own sound judgment.”

“The police have other options: they can use surveillance cameras, helicopters, road spikes, or simply notify other police cars and quietly pursue the fleeing vehicle at a distance.”

“These fleeing drivers aren’t going to stop and think what they’re doing, so it’s up to the police to use their heads instead.”

In Tasmania, Australia, police chases for minor offences are banned. Police in Tasmania say the ban has not stopped them catching criminals.

Assistant Commissioner Donna Adams of the Tasmanian Police told Metro magazine that the Police, who initially opposed the ban on car chases, now strongly support it.

Assistant Commissioner Adams said that while police could still pursue vehicles for serious crimes in progress, such as robbery or murder, “they’re very few and far between.”

Adams added that the ban has not impacted on enforcement of laws. People aren’t drink-driving or nicking vehicles with impunity, she says, because they’re still getting caught.

A former police officer told Metro that police sometimes lie about car chases. “It becomes an intensely personal battle between the chasing officer and the offender,” he said.

Doctored statistics

  • In 2010, at least 18 drivers were killed in police pursuits. The statistics are only for drivers, and do not apply to other members of the public killed or injured in police pursuits. We’ve been unable to find data for the subsequent years.]
  • Police Minister Judith Collins’ office provided NZPA further statistics showing that in 2010 there were 2211 fleeing driver incidents with 354 crashes (16 per cent), in 2009 it was 2349 with 388 crashes (16.5 per cent), 2155 with 505 crashes in 2008 (23.4 per cent), 2435 and 584 crashes in 2007 (24 per cent) and 2234 and 546 crashes in 2006 (24.4 per cent). Around 30 per cent of cars involved in fleeing driver incidents had been stolen. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10713137
  • During the fiscal years of 2008-09 and 2012-13 police stopped an average of 2,687,851 vehicles per year, during those same periods there was an average of 2284 fleeing driver incidents. http://www.stuff.co.nz/southland-times/news/75637631/more-than-100-fleeing-drivers-in-southern-district-in-first-10-months-of-2015–police

Suspiciously dead body of missing man found on Dunedin beach not suspicious
Dunedin man Stephen Gourlay has been found dead. As to be expected, police say there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death. Mr Gourlay, 52, had been missing since December 20. His body was found on Boulder Beach, on the Otago Peninsula, on Monday afternoon.  http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/75840797/body-found-on-dunedin-beach-confirmed-as-missing-man.html

Mr Gourlay was described as a “loving father always there for his family.” He had just celebrated the birth of a new grandchild, said her youngest daughter Emma Feather Shaw.

“Our dad has spent the last few days helping us babysit the grandkids, run mundane errands, help a friend move house, and deliver a firewood donation to a member of the community.”

Police did not bother to find out the circumstances leading to his death, like the how, the what or the why. Case closed!

Obtuse police too predictable

Posted by te2ataria on January 5, 2016

That’s the “good” news!

Now the police-doctored road toll: Holiday road toll rises to 12 with death of person injured on New Year’s Day; 1,617 crashes reported.
http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/75615676/holiday-road-toll-rises-to-12-with-death-of-person-injured-on-new-years-day.html

Police were called to 1,617 crashes around the country during the holiday period, which began at 4pm on December 24 and ended at 6am today. http://www.odt.co.nz/news/national/368853/12-killed-roads-over-christmas

Our “creative” police want us to believe only 12 people were killed over a 12-day holiday period, when as many as 14 road fatalities occur regularly over a busy weekend!

The police are too unintelligent not to be predictable! Before the holiday period, you could have bet with near 100 percent certainty that they would report a comparable number of road-murders to last year’s, most probably even fewer.

Sure enough, the provisional toll for the Christmas – New Year holiday period, which ended at 6am today (Tuesday), currently stands at 12 fatalities.

Allowing for one to three additional fatalities [manufacturing virtue by reporting the death of persons injured earlier 😉 ] the toll would still be lower than last year’s also-doctored total of 16. [To prove us wrong, they could up the total with one or two more fatalities.]

Now the truth!

Based on the information received from our friends throughout the country and the blog’s statistical model, the moderators believe at least 1,850 crashes have occurred on NZ roads over the holiday period, resulting in up to 50 fatalities and about 850 injuries. [Margin of error: +/- 5%]

[The official holiday road monitoring period began at 4pm on 24 December and ended at 6am today.]

Five foreigners killed by drowning in New Zealand since Friday

Posted by te2ataria on December 28, 2015

At least five foreigners killed by drowning in New Zealand in three days

A Samoan toddler, 3, a Chinese couple, a female Briton and at least one other foreigner, 22, have been killed by drowning (on the water) in NZ since Friday.

3-year-old Samoan boy killed by drowning in NZ

A Samoan family who moved to New Zealand last month in search of a “better life” are instead mourning the loss of a son, aged 3.

“Jimmy Atilua Laulu, 3, drowned in a lagoon at Ocean Beach near Hastings while on a family outing on Christmas Day.”

His body was found by his uncle about an hour after he was last seen.

RIP. Jimmy Atilua Laulu, 3, drowned in a lagoon at Ocean Beach near Hastings on Christmas Day. His family recently moved to NZ, in search of a “better life (!)” Photo: Supplied/ via nzherald.

He is one of at least eight people killed by drowning (on the water) since Friday including a female Briton, two Chinese visitors and another foreigner, aged 22, whose ID has not been released.

Meanwhile, the body of a 17-year-old swimmer, Jordon James Marshall, 17, who went missing on Christmas Day at Castlecliff Beach in Whanganui has been pulled out from the water. http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/75480018/Body-of-missing-17-year-old-Whanganui-swimmer-found-at-Castlecliff-Beach

A 50-year-old man died in the sea at Tolaga Bay, north of Gisborne today (Monday) and a 40-year-old man was taken by ambulance to Tauranga Hospital about 5pm Monday after an incident in the water at Maketu. He was in a serious condition. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11566857

Foreigner’s body found washed up on Mount Maunganui beach

The body of a 22-year-old male from overseas has been found floating in surf at Mount Maunganui beach, reports quoted police as saying. http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/75480632/mans-body-found-washed-up-on-mount-maunganui-beach

The foreign national’s body was discovered by a person walking along the beach about 6.30am. http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/crime/75480632/mans-body-found-washed-up-on-mount-maunganui-beach

[Like god, NZ police don’t reveal information directly to the mortals; you have to go through the Church for any revelation, in this case the MSM. How’s that for “divine” de-mock-racy?]

“They didn’t see him but have located some clothing on the beach that more than likely belonged to him,” police said.

“We have identified him, we know who he is, we know where he’s from, but until such time as his next of kin have been notified we won’t be releasing that to any parties.”

[They always say that, but often the victim’s ID remains a state secret.]

Another avoidable tragedy: at least one person road-murdered near Auckland

Posted by te2ataria on November 15, 2015

Police update: A 55-year-old female was killed, nine other victims involved in the crash, three have been discharged from Hospital and the other six remain in Middlemore Hospital in a stable condition.  http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/police-call-witnesses-fatal-tuakau-crash

Person road-murdered, six others injured in head-on collision south of Auckland

At least one person was road-murdered and six others injured in  a head-on car crash south of Auckland.

Police said two people, believed to be children, were in critical condition, two others in a serious condition, and two more have suffered minor injuries.

The deadly crash occurred before 12:30pm on Sunday, on Buckland Road in Tuakau on a corner of the rural road where several other crashes have previously happened, according to a report.

A nearby resident said the crash happened was on a dangerous bend with a considerable amount of loose metal near a landfill site.

“I don’t know how they got a resource consent for it [the landfill],” said the resident. “It was an accident waiting to happen.”

A fiery two-car crash in 2009 on the same bend, about 4km north of Tuakau, claimed the lives of at least four people. The fate of a fifth victim who sustained critical injuries remains unknown. See “Crash ‘one of most horrific’ ever seen“.

Police have refused to reveal the identity of the victims, believed to be overseas visitors.

In yet another ridiculous incident…

All seven of those involved in the crash were hospitalised due to their injuries. At least one person is in critical condition in Middlemore Hospital.  http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/car-vs-pedestrians-update
