Another case of judge having no idea. Judge Mary Peters is the culprit in this instance.
Let’s look at the facts:
- this ‘father’ broke his four month old baby’s legs
- this ‘father’ caused numerous other injuries
- this ‘father’ has been walking around free awaiting trial – for a year and a half
- this ‘father’ has been given a year’s home detention
He is blonde, European and from a good family. If he’d been Maori and from the wrong side of town would he have got this pathetic sentence?
Easy answer, No. This judge has said it’s OK to beat your kid if you’re white. Disgusting.
