The whole of Northland is doing a /facepalm right now

3 News reports

Three nephews of Mana Party leader Hone Harawira are facing charges over an incident in which a 12-year-old boy was followed home and assaulted.

Mau Toa Harawira, 30, Enesi Zane Brooks Taito, 25, and Tohora Harawira, 22, are facing charges of injuring with intent to injure over the incident, the New Zealand Herald reports.

It’s alleged the men were at a Manukau Harbour beach in Auckland, and had been drinking earlier in the day, when they saw a 12-year-old boy who they believed was mouthing words at them.

A police summary alleges they chased the boy to his home. They then allegedly entered the house and punched and kicked him repeatedly, before dragging him outside and continuing the assault.  

Entering his home?

Why aren’t they charged with home invasion?   Does it really look like they were invited in?

The boy was later taken to hospital, and was discharged with bruising to the cheek, nose and chest.

None of the men have so far entered a plea. They are due to reappear in court on April 9, and lawyers for the accused say a trial date is yet to be set.

The men’s mother, Hinewhare Harawira, has become known as an anti-violence campaigner. On Waitangi Day, she welcomed Sir Owen Glenn’s inquiry into violence onto the famous marae.

However as much as the MSM are trying to tie this to Hone by saying “Three nephews of Mana Party leader Hone Harawira”, the truth is, this is a serious gang assault of 3 adult men on an adolescent boy.

How proud must the Harawira clan be, for 22, 25 and 30 year old men to follow a 12 year old to his home, let themselves in and beat the snot out of him.

These guys need to have the book thrown at them.  But you know what will happen, won’t you?

  • Last time I checked, Manukau wasn’t in Northland…

    • Freddie Fleetstreet

      Correct,but that the massive Harawira group is centred near Kaitaia. Which is in Northland.

      • tarkwin

        Plenty of them up in Te Kao – they’ve all but fucked that place. Good ice creams at the local shop though, just lock the car.

        • Mr_Blobby

          Last time I drove up north I filled up before hand and was careful not to send any money up there. So as not to support the feral cunts in any way shape or form. All I left them was my rubbish and shit. Was I to generous.

          • tarkwin

            I spend a fair bit of time up that way Mr B and understand how you feel, but I try to spend as much as I can with the decent people who are trying to make a go of it – which is most of them. It’s the usual squeaky wheel syndrome combined with a generous dollop of horrid style sensationalism. Most people are law abiding, there isn’t enough for the young people to do and not enough work. But this is changing, Avacado’s are big and getting bigger. So are corn, melons, passionfruit mussel spat harvesting and forestry. Not the best paying jobs but at least it’s a start. You don’t see the Harawiras around much, they crave an audience but fear sunlight. Spend money up there and help us de – Harawira the place. Happy people are the Harawiras greatest enemy.

          • Mr Sackunkrak

            In short, yes.

    • He didn’t say Manukau was in Northland. He was saying that Northland would be face palming because of the actions of these wayward sons of the north. Talking of which – what brave men they are – assaulting a twelve year old. Scum.

      • blokeintakapuna

        Harawira… Mana the entire Iwi can be proud of…

        Yeah Right!

        I wonder what the Maori King would say about this? I really hope the Truth do a thorough questioning of The King on this mater and those Harawira ferals.

        If they really wanted some culture… I suggest the Japanese and the time honoured tradition of Suppuku as the ideal place to start.

        • ConwayCaptain

          In Seppuku you need a second to administer thye coup de grace. Any volunteers??

  • That is just seriously disturbing, no matter who they are!

  • Unions.Sux.Arse

    Obviously the teachings of Titiwhai Harawira (mother of John Hatfield) are being passed to the next generation of Harawira’s……The Popata’s at Waitangi, and now these home invaders….all stem from Titiwhai’s beating of a mentally ill patient under her care !!!! Proves the addage, a bad apple can spoil a barrel.

    • blokeintakapuna

      Or… That it never falls far from the tree…

  • tarkwin

    Nothing surprising here, the whole family is feral. This is just the next generation following the family tradition. The only good news is they appear to be moving to Auckland. Probably because their gang leaders electorate encompasses West Auckland and they need to radicalise a few more dead beats before another race based party works out this is the best place to attack him. The majority of people stupid enough to want to vote Mana up here probably don’t have the intelligence to enroll. The good news is these wankers will end up with a record and the gang will gain another black mark.

  • Dave

    Enough has been said in the original post and by others, but agree with Cam why haven’t they been charged with home invasion and possibly more charges, attempted kidnapping ?? Article mentions they dragged him outside!! Throw everything at them and lock the sad fuckers up in a Southland jail without heating for years.

    • Tom

      These are very serious charges. If this is accurate description of what happened, then they are in deep deep shit. If the police DON’T charge them with home invasion, I really want to know why!

      Mind you Helen didn’t get done for fraud, so I’m not holding my breath

  • Mr_Blobby

    1. The old fossil titiwhai is angry and disgusted
    wasn’t she found guilty of assault herself. Bet the boys are in for a bit of a
    beating when she sees them next, for getting caught.

    2. Anti violence campaigner sounds like a TAX payer
    funded wrought to me.

    3. Wasn’t a relative involved in the assault for
    the greeting for the Governor General

    4. Wasn’t it nephews of John Hatfield who assaulted
    leadersat Waitangi in past years.

    5. This was all known on Waitangi Day, but not a
    mention in the news.

    6. Perhaps if Sir Glenn is serious about his
    enquiry he can start it at the harawira household.

    7. The proud noble once were warriors of the harawira

    There was also a charge of burglary, one of them decided to
    take the boys play station and other toys and threatened more violence if he

    And yes we all know what will happen. Soft cock judge, Police drop or downgrade charges, letter from PM saying what a nice family they are.

    Now can the Government, Courts, and in particular the Police
    grow some gonads and sort this gang of thugs out once and for all. No more wet
    bus tickets, they all have previous history they should be categorized as an organized
    criminal group.

  • BJ

    Obviously Hone is a great role model for Maori particularly whanau. The lad that was subjected to a home invasion and assault is actually not even an adolescent at the age of 12

    • blokeintakapuna

      The loss of Mana these ferals have brought upon Norhtland Iwi is enough that the Maori King should publicly shame them all on the Marae.

      Where are the Iwi leaders denouncing this thuggery by these ferals? Or does the King condone it with his silence?

      • Mr_Blobby

        Self appointed nobodies with no real authority. Part of the code of Silence is that other maori are never to be criticized.

      • Mr_Blobby

        You know Pot Kettle Black.

      • tarkwin

        He’s too busy driving his truck and listening to country music to care.

  • In Vino Veritas

    Like father, like son. Bashing runs in the family – ask Hone since he and a few Uni mates bashed some students up with baseball bats when they “dishonoured” the haka. Nice family that.

    • Mr_Blobby

      Did he finish Uni and what was his degree in, or was it honorary.

    • Ronnie Chow

      Harawira was with the Stormtroopers gang , wasn’t he ?.

  • steve and monique

    Family of shitbags!!.

  • PlanetOrphan

    3 Grown men beat up a 12 Year old coz he silently dissed them.
    Psychotic comes to mind, Throw the book at them, freakin scabbing scumbags.

    Hang on, they aren’t part of the Drug squad are they ?
    Home detention or discharged without a conviction will answer that one 4 yas!

  • starboard

    Harawiras are all scum. Arthur Harawira was done for armed robbery years ago. How the fuck did we end up with such dirtbags sucking on the public tit. Time we took a few out. feral mongrels.

  • JC

    Hinewhare Harawira anti-violence campaigner.. thats a joke. She was jailed in 1995 for spitting at GG Cath Tizard,

    And there’s TV footage from back in the early 80s of her rushing across the street and bashing a cameraman who was taking too much interest in her family.

    There’s a pattern to all this.. the Matriarch has a history of violence but eventually she stops so she can become Queen of the North and lets Hone and Hinewhare take over the bashing.. they in their turn eventually stop bashing so they can make some money or garner power and hand off to the current mob of younger thugs.

    Don Corleone would recognise the pattern in three seconds flat.


    • Don Corleone at least had a type of honour…

    • Mr_Blobby

      Its guaranteed that the whole clan are on some sort of Government assistance, benefits, Government employees, working for or running government funded trusts etc

    • Mr_Blobby

      Just checked it out she got 6 months, would have served 30% of that and then went on to do a documentary about woMEN in prisons through AK Uni.

      How to do anti-violence properly.

      Goes to show how soft cock the justice system has got the last assault on various dignitaries including the PM have resulted in fines or less.

  • Phar Lap

    It will all get to the Supreme Court and as we know that is where all the activists reside masquerading as judges,the home invaders will be found not guilty and with the rider saying they were only carrying out customary rights.

  • Anonymouse Coward

    I can guess the word that the young victim mouthed at the alleged assailants;


    • Tom

      Haha nice

    • …and there I was kind of hoping for cocksmoker.

    • Mr Sackunkrak

      Nah, probably “ghost chips”.

  • Mr Sackunkrak

    And we are expected to celebrate these thugs and their ilk on Harawira Day every February 6th. Fuck that.

  • worksux

    Man you should have heard Jackson and tamihire on radio live about this,…. joking

    • starboard

      couple of yesterday men… wouldn’t cross the road to piss on them if they were on fire..

    • Troy

      Jackson and Tamihere the biggest joke in NZ – they think they are funny, they think they have the feel/pulse of people. Far from it. They drench themselves in their own self-importance that they have become the joke of the radio waves.
      As for the Harawira’s – fuck the lot of them. Ship them all off in a crate to the Auckland Islands. I hope retribution is swift upon them in the meantime – amputees don’t get to reoffend much again.

  • Brian of Mt Wellington

    Cam is right, why aren’t they being charged with home invasion, most other scumbags would have. What do you expect though from a family of degenerates I don’t know why someone thinks the maori king would think anything of it because as far as I know his make believe title is only in relation to the tainui tribe. He is probably no better than the rest of them anyway. He thinks he is so much better than everyone else when in fact he is just another bludger with his nose in a trough somewhere.

  • Rodger T

    Judge Raoul Neave will give all three a handjob and sentence the 12yr old to 6 months home detention.

  • Patrick

    Get a map, paint a bullseye over Kaitaia & post it to the newest nuclear powerhouse North Korea. President Kim Jong-il is looking for some long range target practise.

  • J.M

    This goes back to when Sue Bradford was in parliament, but I have always felt that a criminal record should disqualify someone from running for parliament. Surely Hone has priors as well?
