Hey You Sarah Barlow.You have to remember.This incident happened at approximately 2.30am and everyone was on the plonk.Now if Hawea Vercoe was'nt so up himself,what with the ongoing problem WITH his X Wife and her new man,,she really is a lucky Lady to have gotten out of that Relationship before,"Well".. we will never know what may have happened if she had have remained with such a violent man.Especially one who all the Idiots look up to as.."THE MAN"..Who will save Aotearoa from the BOOGIE GHOST.Stand up and be HONEST.We all know DRUNK PEOPLE CAN SEE THINGS THAT ARE'NT THERE AT ALL.OK..I realise the Vercoe Whanau has lost a loved one,but don't cut up another Whanau because of a silly night out on the piss.Kia kaha Girl be straight up and don't BULLSH_T any more.The lightning might strike and you may be the one at the RECIEVING end of it...

Uncle in Aussie, from what I've gleaned of this sorry saga I can't disagree with your comments on Hawea Vercoe. Not all the mainstream media would have us believe, and certainly not the tranquil "great brown hope" he was touted as, thats for sure. But the incident resulted in a sad loss for his family nonetheless.

In regards Isaiah Tai, I'm sorry but he has to pay the price for the crime he has committed. A silly night on the piss hardly passes as an excuse. The Tai family wouldn't be getting "cut up" if he hadn't killed the guy....

Who ever posted this comment, please don't enter any educational competitions or anything to do with having to use your brain, as you lack the capabilities of forming proper sentences. It was a very sad loss to the Vercoe Whanau, but trashing the Tai's isnt going to bring Mr Vercoe back. Now, Australian Law Book, please, did you even go past looking at the cover...I very much doubt it.
Why dont you do us all a favour and in roll into the nearest Primary School and get that Education you so deserve, and let us adults handle what needs to be handled, without pee brain idiots like yourself interfering into things you obviously know nothing about.
Kind Regards
