A special public health committee set up to crack down on family violence has found all the deaths it reviewed were preventable.
The Family Violence Death Review Committee, which advises the Health Quality and Safety Commission, analysed 72 deaths from 2009-2011.
Of course they were preventable…If Maori stopped bashing their kids to death a good proportion of those kids would still be alive.
Committee chairwoman Professor Julia Tolmie said of the deaths considered, 35 were intimate partner homicides, 20 were associated with child abuse and neglect, and 17 involved other family members.
I’ll bet almost all were sufferers of Silly First Name Syndrome too…and many of the victims, especially those killed by “intimate partners” were SOCKs (Some Other C*nts Kids).
I wonder just how much funding was required to work out that of “intimate partners” and child abusing “other family members” stopped doing what they do then these kids would stop dying.
