Update 5 – Te Anau Milford Highway crash

Wednesday, 22 March 2017 – 10:09am
This release can be attributed to Southern Area Commander Inspector Joel Lamb.

This is a horrific incident that has impacted a large amount of people and that of the Te Anau and Milford communities.

Police can confirm that the vehicles involved were a passenger bus carrying tourists and a rented smaller vehicle.  The collision caused a fire which enveloped both vehicles.

Police, Fire and Ambulance worked together to secure the scene to extinguish the fire, treat the wounded and assist those affected by the crash.  The scene of the crash was cleared late last night.

Both vehicles were substantially damaged as a result of both the crash and the subsequent fire.

All occupants of the bus were able to exit the bus.  Several of these occupants required first aid at the scene and later at a local medical centre.

Witnesses reported to Police that there were two individuals in the smaller vehicle.  Police are working to identify all individuals in the vehicle but can confirm that there were no survivors from that vehicle.

Due to the damage to the vehicle it will take the Police Disaster Victim Identification Team some time to positively identify any individuals in the vehicle. http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/update-5-te-anau-milford-highway-crash

Why Protesters Gathered Outside Peter Thiel’s Mansion This Weekend
On Saturday afternoon, a group of about fifty tech workers, attorneys, anti-surveillance activists, and other Bay Area denizens stood outside a three-story, nine-bedroom, twenty-five-million-dollar mansion. It is the home of the investor, entrepreneur, and Trump adviser Peter Thiel, who co-founded Palantir Technologies, in 2004.

Palantir Enables Immigration Agents to Access Information From the CIA
Protesters carried signs reading “Make America Mexico Again” and “No Ban No Wall No Surveillance State.”

Donald Trump has inherited the most powerful machine for spying ever devised. How this petty, vengeful man might wield and expand the sprawling American spy apparatus, already vulnerable to abuse, is disturbing enough on its own. But the outlook is even worse considering Trump’s vast preference for private sector expertise and new strategic friendship with Silicon Valley billionaire investor Peter Thiel, whose controversial (and opaque) company Palantir has long sought to sell governments an unmatched power to sift and exploit information of any kind.

Every death in New Zealand must be regarded as suspicious, unless investigated by qualified, independent (non-NZers) investigators.

“Bowers, a lawyer who lived in Nelson, was supposed to be in Christchurch representing a plaintiff in a civil case. He never arrived at the courthouse.”

“Police say neither of the men was wearing a seat belt. A 40-year-old remains in a critical condition while his 46-year-old companion is serious but stable.”

Green MP calling on Government funds to divest from palm oil company involved in labour abuse allegations

Many millions dollars have been invested by Government superannuation funds in international palm oil companies, including Wilmar International, a Singapore based company “embroiled in allegations of labour abuse on some of its Indonesian plantations.”

The Green Party has called on the New Zealand Superannuation Fund and Government Superannuation Fund – two of the Government’s three largest investment funds – to cut ties with Wilmar International after receiving information showing around $7 million is currently invested.

Figures provided to the Green Party and the Herald showed the NZ Superannuation Fund, ACC Investment Fund, and Government Superannuation Fund have $22 million tied up in four foreign palm oil companies linked to the illegal burning and devastation of Indonesian rainforests. The companies are: Genting Bhd, IJM Corp Berhad, Posco, and Daewoo.

“The NZ Superannuation Fund continues to invest and profit in companies linked to illegal rainforest destruction in Indonesia and has knowingly done so since 2014,” said Green Party conservation spokesperson Mojo Mathers.

“Norway’s $900 billion pension fund documented and publicly reported in 2014 and again in 2015 on the ‘severe environmental damage’ these companies were causing in Indonesia, leading it to sell its investments after two years of unsuccessful engagement.”

  • More than 2 million NZers were “unwitting” investors in big tobacco companies and makers of banned weapons

In total, New Zealanders were found to have $102m invested in tobacco companies, with more than half of this stake made by one fund provider – ANZ, and its OneAnswer funds. The Herald analysis ranked the ANZ pair as having invested the highest proportion of client funds into blacklisted assets.

[…] three KiwiSaver providers had made investments worth a total of $2.3m in a trio of United States companies – Textron and General Dynamics – blacklisted by the NZSF due to their production of cluster bombs.

New Zealand signed an international treaty banning such weapons, and in 2009 passed enabling legislation specifically forbidding investments in such companies. [Clearly paying lip service.]

Funds managed by Westpac, AMP and Aon hold shares in three companies.

In October, the Herald reported how the three big Government funds had a combined $21 million tied up in four palm oil companies that were dropped by the world’s biggest state pension fund after a report found an unacceptable risk of “severe environmental damage”.

“Why did you have to kill me?”

Court allows NZ media to show a fraction of video of police Tasering man, who was killed while being arrested

A zombie jury cleared  four Hawke’s Bay cops of assault charges after they tasered and assaulted Gregory McPeake, who was then killed while being arrested two years ago.

The morbidly obese 53-year-old, who weighed 179kg, was wanted by police for allegedly assaulting his 76-year-old father in Hastings.

Video showing only a fraction of the interaction between the murderous cops and McPeake is posted at http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11814989

“The footage, from two Taser X2s used to shoot electronic probes into McPeake’s vehicle, show the [victim] sitting at the driver’s wheel after police smashed the windows.”

McPeake was lighting a cigarette before being struck by the probes fired from Tasers either side of the vehicle on March 13, 2015.

He was also sprayed with OC Spray and bitten by two police dogs that were let loose on him.

“Setting two police dogs on to a man sitting in his stationary car was inappropriate, according to the country’s top police dog officer.

“Judge Cooper had earlier declined applications for permanent name suppression of cleared officers Senior Constable Andrew Knox, and Constables Alex Simister and Rochelle Bryant, but granted continued suppression of the name of the fourth (!)”

NZ Youth: Vicious, Sexually Perverted…

“Appalling” assault at Hutt Valley High School
“What occurred was simply totally unacceptable in any school … the authorities are involved, there is quite a process running [but let’s not speak out of context; after all, we’re in NZ,]” principal Ross Sinclair told Fairfax.

“It has so far been an unimpressive week for schools in the Wellington region, with Wellington College making headlines for its students’ derogatory online comments about women, and St Patrick’s Silverstream students getting suspended for inappropriately filming female staff.”

“Gerard Tully, the rector of St Patrick’s College at Silverstream, confirmed four Year 9 students had been suspended after a ‘most distressing incident of sexual harassment‘”.

The sexual harassment at the Catholic school comes shortly after Wellington College students posted comments on Facebook about having sex with drunk unconscious girls.

One of the messages said, “If you don’t take advantage of a drunk girl, you’re not a true WC [Wellington College] boy.”

Friends of the boys have since said the posts were jokes, but young women and students and sex education groups said similar comments could be heard every day in schools across the country.

A culture synonymous with rape!

Posted by te2ataria on March 8, 2017

Foreplay: New Zealand has the highest rate of RAPE in the so-called developed world. Only 9 percent of rapes [and sexual crimes] are reported [registered by the police] in NZ, however, according to government figures. Of the reported cases, only 13 percent end in a conviction. That means 91 percent of the rapes either go unreported, or the victims are intimidated by police to drop their complaints.

Kiwis failing drug tests, that’s why we need more migrants: PM from Hell

Posted by te2ataria on February 27, 2017

Only three vehicle-related fatality reports allowed so far today!

Sent by a reader

It never occurred to the CORRUPT Prime Minister to address the drug problem that is destroying the country…

The young Kiwis failing workplace drug tests won’t just go away. They will replace the current generations of murderers, rapists, car thieves and burglars. And that’s why the addicts are needed. They enrich the establishment’s mega pushers, and promote the need for a dysfunctional police state.

PM defends net migration levels, says foreign workers needed because Kiwis failing drug tests

English defended the latest increase in net migration today and said he was not looking at curbing demand, despite 140,000 New Zealanders being out of work.

Speaking at his weekly press conference, English said the Government was still getting “robust” complaints from businesses that they could not fill vacancies, especially the hospitality and horticulture industries.

Asked why jobless New Zealanders could not fill these roles, English said: “One of the hurdles these days is just passing a drugs test.

Prime Minister from Hell: Bill English. I’m the frigging Prime Minister. It’s not my job to feed the poor, house the homeless, educate the stupid, or solve the drug problem. I’m here to look after the interests of the super wealthy and grant citizenship to Internet pirates and other international criminals. Photo credit: WARWICK SMITH/FAIRFAX NZ
