South Auckland has its share of ferals too

I should be more careful when I call people ferals.  It seems to upset the media so.  Perhaps I should have chosen animal instead.

A South Auckland man who fractured the skull of a four-month-old baby has been jailed for more than two years.

Toetu Salasa, 25, appeared in the Manukau District Court today for sentencing after pleading guilty to wounding with intent to injure and assault with intent to injure.

He injured the baby while it was being held by its mother, who he was attempting to punch in the face, the court heard.

… on February 19 last year… His partner confronted him about how much he was drinking while he was holding the baby and she took the child from him.

They fought as he tried to wrestle the baby back from her and she punched him to make him stop pulling the child.

His partner put the baby’s face against her shoulder protectively but Salasa began throwing “haymaker” punches at her head. Read more »

Hawkes Bay ferals


KFC is generally stereotyped as the dining experience of choice for those who can least afford it, and this story isn’t helping their image.

A Hastings woman has been referred to Child, Youth and Family after leaving her 6-month-old baby on the floor of a KFC restaurant yesterday. Read more »

A reader emails about haters in politics

A reader emails:


I’m having a bitch about the ‘hate’ stuff going on about John Key and have written this piece.

It may be ok for soapbox, but if not (because I tend to ramble) that’s ok too.


Ferals all of them:

I have been quite disturbed for some time, but particularly over the last month or so leading up to the Election, about the ‘hate’ comments I hear on Talkback radio.

My distaste started in earnest when the Internet Party was announced.  Many callers rang to say they would vote for the IP.  When asked why, in almost every case the reply was, because they hate John Key.  Nothing to do with IP’s policies (there were none), or a like for the fat kraut (there are none).  Some callers thought that free broadband was ‘choice’!   Read more »

Entire feral family gains name suppression

Readers might be interested to know the whole westie  feral family appear to have name suppression due to their ‘alleged’ killer teenage sons.

Auckland dairy owner killing – parents in court on aggravated robbery now get name suppression as well!

The father of a 12-year-old charged with the aggravated robbery of West Auckland dairy owner Arun Kumar is also facing charges of aggravated robbery.

The son — whose name is suppressed because of his age — is due to appear in Auckland District Court next week, with his father appearing there less than three weeks later.

It is alleged the 12-year-old jointly committed aggravated robbery with a 13-year-old accomplice, who has also been charged with murder.

The charges stem from the death of Mr Kumar in his Henderson dairy about 7.30am last Tuesday. He was found stabbed in the neck.

The 12-year-old’s father — who cannot be named as it would reveal the identity of his son — is facing four charges of aggravated robbery, committing burglary with a weapon, threatening to kill or cause grievous bodily harm, and unlawful assembly.

Meanwhile, the Herald can also reveal that the mothers of both boys have been taken to the Tenancy Tribunal by their landlords, owing thousands.

I’m sure an electronic ankle bracelet would have prevented this


Apparently, you can stop women being hurt and murdered if the person that is the threat is under some kind of electronic monitoring.  If this man had been wearing one, maybe he wouldn’t have beaten his partner’s 8 month old baby to a pulp.

Matt Bowen reports

A man has been arrested and charged in relation to a baby that was critically injured in Hamilton this morning.

“At this stage the baby remains in a critical condition and is likely to be transferred to Auckland’s Starship Hospital later today for more specialist care,” said Waikato field crime manager, acting Detective Inspector Mark Greene. Read more »


A solution to feralism?

A commenters suggests a possible solution for the increasing incidence of feralism:

Billions of dollars have been spent on all types of programmes targeting Maori poverty, child abuse, crime, domestic violence, unemployment etc, nothing changes. Successive Governments claim to have the answers and new funding, new incentives, and new promises fail to stem the flow of depravity. Let’s just stop. No more special treatment, no more special funding, no more excuses. Hold parents responsible for the actions of the child. Hold Maori accountable for their over representation in these statistics. Demand they do something about it, because until such time as their own families judge them, it won’t change. STOP throwing money at them … it doesn’t work.

Quite simply welfare doesn’t work.

I have told loads of politicians that welfare doesn’t work, invited them to come visit in South Auckland. One, a Labour MP promised to do so but never has…despite now working near where I was talking about.

If welfare was the answer then it was a bloody stupid question in the first place.

We have poured literally billions of dollars into welfare for various reasons…to protect the kids, to improve health, to make houses warm…the excuses are endless.

All that is generated is increased, weapons grade whinging about needing more….billions more.

If welfare was the answer then poverty, crime, child abuse and many other societal ills would have been solved a long, long time ago.

It is time to do something different.


Feral is as Feral does

It will be no surprise to anyone that the feral ratbags who “allegedly” stabbed a shopkeeper to death are the offspring of more feral ratbags.

The parents of both boys charged over the death of a dairy owner are in jail or facing active criminal charges.

As shopkeeper Arun Kumar was farewelled in a moving service among his family and friends in Wiri, South Auckland, further details of the lives and families of the 12- and 13-year-old boys can today be revealed.

Because the boys are so young, their names are suppressed. However, the Herald on Sundayhas learned the 13-year-old murder accused’s mother appeared in court this month on dishonesty offences and breaching bail.

The Herald on Sunday understands the 13-year-old’s father is also in custody.

Unfit to even be called a mother

Astonishing feral neglect…this woman is unfit to even be called a mother.

If ever there was a case to support permanent sterlisation of people unfit to breed this might well be it.

A 6-year-old cradled her 8-month-old sister, watching a computer on which music played.

Police found them home alone with two other siblings and no readily available food or heating in a dark, dirty house, lit only by the computer screen’s glow.

Their mother, Maraea Manu Gage, had left them a bottle of milky tea, thick with sugar and a tea bag.

She had also left them with a toilet blocked with faeces, a bath full of dirty clothes and orders to not open the door to anyone.   Read more »

No baying mob attempting to lynch this guy?

Very strange, I would have thought there would have been a baying mob erecting a scaffold for this guy.

A man who allegedly caused the death of Judd Hall by driving drunk while fleeing from police in Greymouth on January 24, made a brief appearance in front of the Greymouth District Court registrar yesterday.

Jordan Nathaniel McGrath, 28, of Whataroa, was bailed until May 13, when he will plead by video link with the High Court to the charges, including the manslaughter of Mr Hall, 26.

McGrath is charged with dangerous driving causing the death of Mr Hall, dangerous driving causing injury to a second passenger, Kori Jeffcoat; driving with excess breath or blood-alcohol on a third or subsequent occasion; and committing manslaughter by driving at a dangerous speed while under the influence.

The car that McGrath was driving crashed into a High Street house at high speed about 11.30pm on January 24. Mr Hall died at the scene.

A feral ratbag in nice clothes is still a feral ratabag

Only a feral ratbag would steal the collection box of the St John Ambulance.

Help catch this feral ratbag.


Police want to hear from anyone who knows the young woman who stole a St John donation box from Opua’s general store.

She was captured clearly on CCTV as she entered the shop, snatched the donations box and fled about 5.30pm on Saturday.

Sergeant Peter Masters, of Paihia police, said the offender was one of three young females and one male who had been seen around Opua from about 11am that morning.

”This crime will be solved by someone who recognises the girl. It’s quite blatant, the way she reaches in and takes the box,” he said.

No one in Opua had recognised her so it was thought she was from outside the Bay of Islands, possibly from the Whangarei District.

Mr Masters urged anyone who knew who she was to contact the Paihia station on (09) 402 7130.

The unusually clear CCTV images have already been widely shared on social media.

They show two young women entering the shop, which is next to the Opua ferry ramp, with the second girl lingering at the door before lunging for the donations box and fleeing.

Angry Opua residents have been circulating the images in a bid to identify the offenders.
