Newshub reporter blames Women’s Refuge, CYF, Tolley and Government for Moko’s death

Apparently it is everyone else’s problem except the ratbags who bashed him to death and his drop kick mother who was so hopeless she had her kids taken off her.

No, it is the fault of Women’s refuge, CYF, Anne Tolley and the government.

Baby Moko deserves accountability — and that means the Women’s Refuge and Child Youth and Family (CYF) need to take some blame for his death.

Moko was beaten behind closed doors and these agencies were basically on the front door step.

We all know that the callous and vicious abusers are truly at fault and deserve everything the justice system can throw at them. What they did is truly inexplicable.

But at the same time, ‘the system’ is there to protect our children — and the system failed.

The agencies involved owe Moko — and New Zealand — an explanation of why they failed him.

Funny how the culture that supposedly treats children as taonga isn’t at all to blame.

Nope it’s the fault of everyone else. If we want to ask who failed Moko it was his mother first up, then the scumbags who killed him.

The Government and Women’s Refuge were on the doorstep as Moko was killed behind closed doors.

“The system” is guilty of failing another of New Zealand’s children.

We owe it to Moko that the next time this happens those same agencies go inside — and stop it.

Yet again a maori taonga is killed and it is everyone else’s fault.

Liberal hand-wringers call this New Zealand’s shame, but it isn’t really. The same hand-wringers demand the government DO something, but there is nothing you can do about scumbag feral child killers. But the government did do something about it… didn’t they Sue? …and she declared that now that smacking was banned he kiddies were safe. I wonder what Moko thinks about that?

The real issue is this myth that Maori children are taonga, when the reality of some is they are treasured as small little punching bags.

Stop blaming other people. Take responsibility. And stop trying to make me feel guilty because some scumbag killed someone else’s kid.
