NZ's poor violent crime rating 'no surprise'
“But this is all after the crime has been committed. After nine years of Labour are Kiwis any safer? These figures show we are not.”
New Zealand is perceived correctly as a place with high levels of violent crime, Sensible Sentencing Trust spokesman Garth McVicar said after New Zealand scored highly an international crime survey. via The New Zealand Herald

what is crime it is simple when you disregard the crimes committed by the American army in Iraq evry day they kill innocents caught in a war not of their making New Zealand is a beautiful place I arrived here 50 years ago and never left you can say all you want but most of it is excrement of a quadruped known as a bull in Taranaki there is no more crime in NZ than in any other country but there definitely is more freedom one must also remember that crime is usually defined as disobeying a act of parliament and acts of parliament are then constructed in such a way as to produce criminals a classic example is the recent banning of party pills wich is aimed at harrassing young people and has nothing to do with law exept that you have to obey and if you dont then you are a criminal in my book a criminal is someone who does something against someone else use of a party pill is something private and personal but society in fact has to assault the user in order to establish that he is a user thus if one resist such a assault then you are classed a criminal for years the NZ police persuit a policy of making the NZ Maori the criminal class of NZ by harassing young Maori with the result that they formed gangs as they are generally referred to this has now changed and they are targetting the young people who are defenseless the politicians know this but the young are always blamed for the crimes of the fathers, Mr Anderton is basically a insidious individual who by introducing this party pill bill took the moral high ground but in reality created a new criminal victimless as well
