Dogs vs. Mongrels

Last year there were 11,708 attacks by dogs on people.

Nearly 12,000 people suffered dog bite injuries last year, including more than 1700 children aged under 10 – many of whom will be left with scars.

The number of attacks requiring medical attention has increased since 2003 when 8677 people were attacked, including 7-year-old Carolina Anderson who has needed years of surgery after being mauled in an Auckland park.

Her case was so bad it resulted in tougher dog control measures being passed, including the compulsory microchipping of all dogs, but they appear to have done little to prevent thousands of other children from being bitten.

ACC claim statistics released to the Herald revealed 11,708 claims were made by dog-attack victims in 2011 – at a cost of $2.4 million.

A good proportion of those will be dangerous dogs like Pit Bulls and the like, an if the attacks were severe then it is likely that they were put down.

Then there are attacks on people by mongrels:

Police statistics for the year ending June 2011 reveal:

  • 43,556 assaults on a person
  • 13,748 offences against a person
  • 3,748 sexual assaults
  • 59,361 burglaries

Garth McVicar from the Sensible Sentencing Trust says:

In New Zealand we have Judges releasing dangerous ‘things’ on bail who go onto murder. The murderer gets a bulk-discount for any previous crimes committed leading up to the murder, and while executing the murder. The offender also gets a further discount if he pleads guilty or says sorry and offers to attend a Restorative Justice Conference. And if he writes a letter of apology to the family – well we probably won’t even send him to prison, poor thing!

“And the Judge who granted him bail in the first place continues in his job, totally unassailable for the horrendous attack and loss of life his actions made possible.”

“Give me a dog any day.”

We need to end Simon power’s conitnuations of Labour;s “catch and release” criminal justice system. We shoot crazed killers called pit bulls without much wailing or whining when they attack children, perhaps we could treat the mongrels, whose predations on our society mark them as animals, exactly like them.

    Is it just me or do other people get a bit sick to death of the pit bull lovers who are interviewed immediately after every serious mauling telling us its not the dogs fault and what wonderful pets they are blah blah blah BULLSHIT!!!!!!!
    I vaguely remember reading an article in the listener years ago when they were first looking at allowing pit bulls in to the country – I think around 1990.  It stated that out of the 20 fatal (as in death), attacks on humans the previous year in the US, 19 of them were pit bulls and the 20th a Rotty – and we still let them in! 
    A mate of mine put it the best way I’ve ever heard a few years ago when he said that a Labrador can’t walk past a puddle without jumping in it as thats what they are bred for ie water dogs.  At the other end of the scale a pit bull can’t walk past another dog without having to fight it – because thats what they do!  It would also appear to me that for the greater percentage, if the dog is a cross, there is pit bull in there somewhere!
    How many more annual maulings must the greater NZ public suffer at the jaws of these mongrels before something is done?

    As for the judges, don’t even get me started! Gee Garth makes a lot of sense.  To mind, its not the cops who are at fault or even the poiticians for that matter (except for those snivelling socialists), but exactly what Garth said.  Until these PC, namby pamby judges start getting real with proper sentences, what will change?  The definition of insanity – doing the same thing today that you did yesterday and expecting a different result!  For how many more years are these judges going to keep pussy footing around with weak sentences before they realise that something has to change?

    For as long as red Labour and blue Labour keep allowing them to.

  • Anonymous

    Bring back consecutive sentences. None of this concurrent bullshit that McVicar rightly comments on.

  • Umm what the hell is conitnuations – never heard of it? I don’t like big words – Aargh!!

  • Kimbo

    “The number of attacks requiring medical attention has increased since 2003…”

    Can’t have.

    Chris Carter fixed the problem by compulsory micro-chipping of all dogs.

    I suspect the majority of the problem dogs are owned by the mongrels who are the Pakehas’ Burden.

    I thought what David Eagleman proposed in Chapter 6 of his book, Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain, was a very sensible approach. Scrap insanity defenses and the like, and make punishment a purely rehabilitative exercise. 

    Prison is still a reasonable option as a deterrent and punishment, and a place to lock up those unredeemable psychopaths where they can be kept from the public.Fuck all this revenge bullshit, huge waste of money and ineffective, make the justice system focus on fixing the problem
