I am looking at the older men in these boys lives and thinking they should be hanging their heads in shame for failing their boys so much.
Someone has to stop this, and it seems to me that it's the rapists' parents who need to take responsibility and act.
This is what I've been wondering about all the way through this.
Where have the parents of the boys been when this blew up, but far more importantly, when their boys were learning right from wrong.
Something's seriously wrong in all these families from my perspective.
I wonder if the young men in question are shitting themselves now.
If they're not then they're pretty unimaginative.
I've never read the NBR, are they non-biased on both sides of the political spectrum?
High Tory, your name isn't Cameron Slater, is it?
You certainly seem to spew as much drivel and snobbery.
Agree with you about the trams though.
Far from being impressed, we should be disgusted by him.
Indeed. I couldn't even watch the whole interview.
Having said that, the politest police I've ever come across by a long way were consistently the London police (as opposed to in Auckland and Sydney, the other places I've lived.)
Two interesting things I picked up from that article (thanks for posting btw)
The majority were from natural causes, with nearly three-quarters relating to drug or alcohol abuse.
Those who died in custody were mostly white (75%), male (90%) and aged between 25 and 44.
Not really that surprised about the deaths linked to drugs/alcohol/both, but the stat that it's mostly white males was interesting. I just lazily assumed that it would mostly be young, black males given that the Met is widely viewed as being institutionally racist.
Hundreds have died in police custody in the last two decades and the IPCC have convicted not a single officer.
Do you have a citation for this? It's a horrifying stat if true.
What irks people (myself included) is not the rugby or the RWC itself but the NZ media.
Unrelenting doom if we lose, horrible strutting crowing if we win. Both ugly.
