Oh shit I hope this isn't catching

Can you believe this shit.?

A man who smashed his way into a suburban Linwood house after threatening a woman occupant was suffering from "Maori sickness" at the time, a minister told Christchurch District Court today.

WTF!!!!!! "Maori Sickness" is that the new definition for drunk and violent?

Oh, he was ill because he carried a taiaha and a walking stick.
[quote]"It is only elders who carry these things around. The Maori sickness was upon him. That is the sacredness of carrying these things. It was like a curse had been laid upon him."[/quote]
At that point the judge should have told this old fool to FRO out of his court and stop speaking such mumbo-jumbo.
[quote]"Maori sickness was pretty strong in the time of our fathers and grandfathers. It is still happening if things are not done in the right manner."[/quote]
The ridiculous thing about this case is the judge went lenient on him…..was it because of his "Maori Sickness".

I can just imagine it now….people will be able to use the "Maori Sickness" defence and if that fails there is the good old "I’m a Labour Party Member" defence.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
