Still taking the piss, Herald Bomb of immense proportions
But what does the Horrid call him? Antoine Roni Dixon. It’s not just a typo – they got his first AND second name wrong several times throughout the article!
This man – infamous and notorious – was the subject of a massive media storm when he first came to prominence and you would think every journalist would know his name. Not this idiot who writes for the Horrid. Hell, she could have double checked any one of the many articles the Horrid has produced over the years.
And what of the sub-editor? Asleep?
Wikipedia has his details:
Antonie Ronnie “Tony” Dixon (1968 – 4 February 2009) was a convicted New Zealand thief and murderer. His most notorious crimes were committed in an 11-hour spree of violence in 2003 in which he completely or partially severed the hands or arms of two women with a Samurai sword, shot a man dead with a sub-machine gun and kidnapped another man. Dixon acquired over 150 convictions, mostly for theft and burglary; he was imprisoned at least 14 times. His former girlfriend Simonne Butler said he used methamphetamine from at least 2001.
