    Angry And this lot want to run the country!

    Labour promises to boost Teina Pora's compensation if elected

    How the hell he got anything in the first place eludes me because he was a Mongrel Mob Prospect that Pleaded Guilty to the crime!

    Mind you, it sets a precedent whereby we all plead guilty to every crime and then change our mind a get a big handout.

    Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.

    According to Wikipedia,
    the convictions were quashed by the Privy Council in March 2015. On 15 June 2016, he was awarded NZ$2.52 million compensation and received a government apology for being wrongfully convicted of rape and murder.[6]
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teina_Pora

    There's always two sides to every story, what we don't want is another David Bain adventure.

    Read the section in the above link - "Background to Pora's involvement" Nice Aunt.

    Yes Iíve read all that but the bottom line is he was a common thief, a prospect for the Mongrel Mob, and most importantly he Pleaded Guilty.

    I suppose under Labour the Prosecution is expected to become his defence team.

    Ok, they found the guy who actually did the crime, but if I had a say Iíd charge him with wasting Police time and bill him for 20 years food and accommodation.

    As it stands at the moment he is already on already being given $126,000 a year of OUR money plus food and accommodation for telling lies.

    And they say Crime Doesnít Pay.

    I received a phone call yesterday after:

    "Hi! This is Billy English .." I hang up immediately as I am not going to vote, anyway.

    Will I be ever receive such a call from such a person if not it's election time?

    That probably explains it.

    Heís on the same wavelength as most of our politicians.

    So you approve of cops not doing their jobs properly, picking a likely person at random and feeding them the details, so they can close cases?
    Meanwhile the real guilty person runs off laughing. Great stuff.

    its quite possible that the MM pressured him to take the rap . Gangs do expect some prospects to do that .
    If so , whose fault is it if he gets sent to jail

    he pleaded guilty , he has to take some responsibility .
    its possible that its others (not him) that are kicking up the fuss, just to make some noise . It sure seems that way .
