Another child beaten to death

I had a conversation with another blogger about the likelihood of another maori child being based to death by the end of January. We both reckoned iPredict wouldn’t even offer stocks on that, since it was a near certainty.

Unfortunately we were both proved right.

A five-month-old baby who died in an alleged manslaughter in Hastings last week has been named.

Mikara Ranui Jarius Reti, of Flaxmere, was admitted to Hawkes Bay Regional Hospital last Tuesday night and “subsequently died”, police said.

A 21-year-old man, who has name suppression, has been charged with manslaughter.

He is due to appear in the Hastings District Court tomorrow.

Senior Sergeant Dave de Lange said members of the Mikara’s family had been “co-operative and helpful” with a police investigation.

Three things strike me here. First is of course the occurrence once again of Silly First Name Syndrome. If these people took even as much care of the child as they do in giving them stupid names then we would be a whole lot better off and the children may well be alive.

The second thing is we have a 21 year male, not from the family by the looks of the press details. Judith Collins in her Summer Series interview likened this to being the same as Tom Cats going around killing the offspring of other fathers.

“Vio­lent offender who acts very much like a tom­cat and goes around basically killing the young of the pre­vi­ous partner”.

I have coined a new syndrome for this:

SOCKS – Some Other C*nts Kid Syndrome, an affliction that sees the SOCK victim brutally killed by another male involved with the family.

The third thing is that the alleged animal who beat this child to death has name suppression but yet again the victim does not. The law is ass-backwards and clearly criminal friendly.

Of course the liberal hand-wringers like Rosemary McLeod will say it is whitey’s fault and society’s fault, and haters and wreckers like Hone Harawira will just blame whitey, but at some point Maori are going to have to own their own sh*t, because with all the vast sums of money pouring into their laps they still seem overly represented in all the wrong statistics. At some point we as a nation have to say money isn’t working, time to turn the tap off.

Ask Rosemary McLeod, if she cares about Blanket Man so much would she shower. clothe and take him to Shed 5 for lunch? Thought not, so she should STFU. Caring is what “other people” do. The fact she got paid to write that drivel just galls me, if Steve Braunias has to go then it is high time she crawled back into what ever liberal elitist tent she came from and then the Sunday Star Times can have some columnists with a grasp on reality.

Brutal killings of children require brutal solutions and brutal honesty. Sue Bradford said that these children were going to be protected, in actual fact it looks more like they are being killed in increasing numbers since her law was brought in. She lied to the nation and criminalised good parents in the process.
