We shoot mad dogs don’t we?

For Immediate Release:

We shoot mad dogs don’t we?

“If the brutal attack on the little girl in Turangi had been done by a dog or some other mad animal there would have been howls of rage and demands to have it hunted down and shot.

The piece of human filth that carried at this atrocity is not fit to be put in the same category as an ‘animal’.

But when this rabid thing that poses as a human-being is caught we will be told he was on drugs or alcohol or he was from a ‘dysfunctional’ family and had a bad upbringing and – wait for it – yes he needs therapy and rehabilitation!

I note the term ‘random attack’ is already being used to describe this despicable act, this is normally the first step to sanitize such horrific events.

But ‘random’ means by chance or accidental this attack was not by chance or accidental.
The young man beaten to death on the streets of Wellington or the young girl stabbed by a thug in her home and the thousands of other violent attacks including hundreds of children beaten and abused by their ‘care-giver’ are not random!

And they are certainly not accidental.

New Zealand has literally thousands of horrific violent offences committed every year. Many of these crimes are committed by this sub-species that have previously been ‘treated’ as if they suffer from some medical and curable condition.

For those of you who ask where my Christmas spirit is and where is my compassion?

Sorry, every ounce of my compassion – and I have heaps – is being dedicated to victims and I will spend Christmas thinking of the families whose lives have been destroyed or ruined by something this liberal ideology has produced.

On my farm we shoot mad dogs.” ENDS
