Martin Bradbury, or as we  humorously refer to him here at Whaleoil – Wrongly Wrongson, has found a new passing car to bark at. Now that the Black Lives Matter movement in America has reached peak insanity,  with the racial hatred of whites and police at an all-time high, he wants to bring it to New Zealand.

When you include a justice system that is racist and imprisons Maori offenders disproportionately I think we have passed a threshold for a determined #BrownLivesMatter campaign to shake Pakeha NZ out of its ignorant John Key trance.

In Stephen Wallace’s case I seem to remember that he threatened police with a baseball bat and was swinging it at them in close proximity when he was shot; a small detail that Wrongly Wrongson neglected to mention.

As you can see clearly from Martin Bradbury’s own statistics, there is no indication that race was the reason the criminals were shot. His own statistics show that criminals who get shot are criminals who threaten police or others with extreme violence. If those criminals happen to have brown skin then that has nothing to do with police  and everything to do with those  individuals’ personal choices. If people with white skin or brown skin or any other coloured skin are behind bars, it is not because of their skin colour – it is because they committed a crime and they got caught.
