  1. Anyone who thinks these child murderers suddenly take it into their heads one day to kill a child needs to face reality. This infant had suffered more than one attack. The poor child would have been hurt in many different ways since its birth by this same sadist. It just happened that one day he got too excited by his actions and forgot to stop.
    61 children have died as a result of non-accidental injuries ( i.e.deliberate cruelty) in New Zealand in the last 10 years. That averages out at approximately 6 child murders per year and that is not counting the number of children who arrive at Starship hospital with injuries deliberately inflicted. Then the whole crime is buried by the media. There seem to be no court cases or jail terms. And certainly no hangings. Such is the justice system in this god forsaken little country. And so society as a whole is punished when the child murderers are moving about within it satisfying their sadistic impulses, and punished again when the poor child who survives the sadistic treatment grows into adulthood.
