String ‘im up, another bad bastard commits a crime on parole

One day, not far off the citizenry are going to react really rather badly towards the judiciary and other unelected officials that continually let bad bastards out on parole only for them to continue their life of crime.

A man who sexually assaulted a young woman in a Dunedin park last September was on parole at the time from a lengthy prison sentence for serious sexual offending in 2005, the High Court in Dunedin heard yesterday.

Shaun Kahu Leonard, 29, had served seven years of a nine and a half year jail term for a rape with characteristics amounting to deviancy and sadism and had been out of jail only four months when he attacked the 25-year-old Dunedin woman on September 24 last year. 

Yesterday he was sentenced to preventive detention for that offence and must remain in prison for at least five years.

Whoopy…5 years in prison…a long drop off a short rope is perhaps the only solution for some of these crims.

Toby Keith has a song just for this occasion.

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.
