I’ve been avoiding thinking on this let alone saying anything here because I simply am sickened to the very depths of myself over it. What will it take to keep our little people, the future of ourselves from the pointless and atrocious harm that little Nia has suffered? It’s exactly this type of sick behaviour that the Anti-Smacking bill was “supposed” to end…. yeah right. These animals were never going to care what kind of law they were breaking so exactly how was the anti-smacking bill going to make them think twice? Where is Sue Bradford on this matter now?
And as for just pointing out that it is the maori children who suffer in this way and therefore that community needs to step up…. Well, maori, dutch, croatian, islander, or just plain kiwi – this was a little New Zealander who has just had any potential she may have held screwed up severely by “people” who just plain should know better. I don’t care what community this occurs in, it happens here in New Zealand. The place we think is so great to bring our kids up in.
Heaven help us all if we can’t save our little ones.
