“Race-Hustlers” in action

Yesterday I blogged about Thomas Sowell and his contention that young disaffected are being lead around by “race-hustlers”.

It is no surprise then to see an exact case of this in the Herald on Sunday.

A teenager, who says she was forced to her knees at police gunpoint during the 2007 Urewera terror raids, is suing the Police Commissioner for $200,000.

The teen’s barrister, Charl Hirschfeld, said she told him she was taken from her grandmother during a dawn raid of their South Auckland home. It’s claimed the then 12-year-old was on the ground with her hands behind her head for up to 50 minutes.

Hirschfeld is also acting for five adult members of the teenager’s family who are suing the Attorney-General for $100,000 each for a breach of civil rights after being detained during the same incident. 

Other allegations include police interrogated the pyjama-clad girl as light rain fell, asking her, “Do you know any terrorists?”

“The absurdity of this is breathtaking,” Hirschfeld said. “The barrels of the guns are pointed at (the girl’s) head.”

Neither police nor Attorney-General Chris Finlayson would comment while the claims are before the courts.

This is bollocks, but with the liberal courts highly likely to succeed.

You may be sure that the idea to sue didn’t come from the 12 year old. This has all the hallmarks of some parents trying to cash in years after the fact an after being brain-washed into grievance mode.
