Chris Trotter will probably be getting hate emails from the caring and sharing leftwing who think nothing of attacking people for voicing an opinion that differsÂ from theirs, but rush arms outstretched to give sociopaths like Phillip Smith a good hug and a cuddle after he was raised bottle fed not breast fed causing his sociopathic marauding through society.
Trotter is a truth speaker…this is what he hasÂ to say about Phillip SmithÂ and those who enabled his escape:
THE BUREAUCRATIC STUFF-UP that sped Phillip Smith/Traynor on his way to Chile, Brazil, and from there, thankfully,Â into the handcuffs of the Brazilian Federal Police, has exposed one of the most perilous fault lines in New Zealand society.
On one side of the fault line stand the experts and professionals. On the other, ordinary New Zealanders: the laity.
In the modern meritocracy New Zealand believes itself to be, expertise and professionalism are supposed to trump the laypersonâs âinstinctsâ, âgut feelingsâ and âcommon senseâ.
Like the priests and the pastors they have largely superseded, experts and professionals lay claim to specialist knowledge of the world. Their mastery of the modern, âscientificâ, method of explaining the universe means that, all other things being equal, the judgement of the expert and the professional is supposed take precedence over the traditional prejudices and ignorant superstitions of âordinary peopleâ.
But, Phillip Smith/Traynorâs scandalous escape from custody will, almost certainly, turn out to have been facilitated by the judgements of the experts and professionals employed by, or contracted to, the Department of Corrections. Indeed, it is already pretty clear that had the advice of those ordinary New Zealanders caught up in the multiple tragedies of Smithâs offending been heeded, he would never have escaped from custody.
The people who Trotter is referring to are the likes of Kim Workman and other crim hugging weirdos.
Real people think a bit differently.
Ordinary people recoil in horror and disgust from the criminal acts for which Phillip Smith/Traynor was convicted.
Their instinctive response is the same as that of any social animal confronted with a deadly threat to the survival of its young: kill it if you can, or, if that proves impossible, drive it from your midst.
The gut-feeling of non-expert, non-professional New Zealanders is that the likes of Phillip Smith/Traynor are irretrievably evil. As killers, abusers, manipulators and deceivers they must never, ever, be believed or trusted.
The common sense of ordinary Kiwis tells them that, if the possibility of judicial error requires them to rule out the hangmanâs noose, then murderers and paedophiles should simply be locked up forever.
What part of âpredatory child abuserâ and âvicious murdererâ do the Department of Corrections’ experts and professionals not understand?
