Cue more wailing

I’m waiting for all the wailing to start about how NZ society as a whole has a problem with killing kids, when it is apparent that it is actually only one part of our society that has the problem:

Police have launched a homicide investigation after the death of a two-month old baby girl in Whanganui.

Detective Senior Sergeant Neil Forlong said the baby, Hinekawa Topia, was driven to Whanganui Hospital by her parents just before 1pm on Thursday.

She was not breathing and attempts by her father and hospital staff to resuscitate her were unsuccessful.

A post mortem had concluded that a head injury suffered by Hinekawa was considered non-accidental, he said.

Hinekawa was one of triplets and the two other babies, both girls, were in hospital to be medically assessed and in the interim custody of Child Youth and Family, along with a five year-old boy.

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.
