Man jailed for using wheelchair as weapon – 12 Sep 2007 – NZ Herald: New Zealand National news

A Somali immigrant with PR has been jailed after using his wheelchair as a weapon. Since coming to this country this guy has had 14 convictions for violence.

The story is quite bizarre to say the least. Why the chick just didn’t placate the mean little cripple and then take him for a “stroll” down a steep street is beyond me.

It seems the only way we can slow this fool down is to take away his wheelchair and give him mis-matched crutches instead.
