Now that its record of violence is revealed, there is another painful truth to confront


NEW ZEALAND is a little, South Pacific version of 1950s England. People are friendly, trustworthy and hard-working. You can leave your front door unlocked when you go out. Women can safely walk alone at night and, if you drop your wallet, someone will deliver it to your door the next day.
If you share this common view, then you are probably wrong about 1950s England and you are certainly wrong about contemporary New Zealand.

Oh lefty clap trap as always. No airforce because it gave out the wrong image, weak navy because it gave out a wrong image, no foriegn troop deployments because it appears aggresive..... blah blah blah leftist cack.

Gangs, drugs, murder should be what worried her more and the rampant epidemic of inter gang turf wars. oh and the fact that the Police are scared to confront these gangs. Thats a real problem, not some leftist right on issue.

A beatings bad, yes it is a crime. But there are far more seriouse things to worry about.
