Power Junkies

 

What becomes of my broken heart
The rage and fear you cruelly start
You proved that swastika justified
Stood up in court and you lied

The bruises on my legs and arm
For weeks remind me of your harm
All I asked for was a sorry
Promise peace so I don’t worry

The flashbacks haunt me of that day
They make things worse, won’t go away
You pledge white ribbon you do follow
You swear an oath to Queen and bible

Kiwi, Maori, Africaan
The race of men who caused me harm
I’m a child of this earth these stars
You left me with more ugly scars

Junkies rule the marginalised
The poor, oppressed, the most despised
Keep up their bullying over years and years
Work for elites, profit from tears

And one last thing you oughta know about me
I DON’T TAKE NO SHIT FROM NO POWER JUNKIE

I DEMAND Donna Howard NZ POLICE deal with police assault – TODAY – #16DAYSOFACTION2017

I will take the focus off NZ police violence against me and others during my current protests if Insp Donna Howard DEALS WITH what happened, I get justice & to meet with the two officers.

THESE ARE MY COMPLETELY JUSTIFIED DEMANDS

The officer who assaulted me gets counselling, a written warning and a record of it on his file.

The officer who threatened me with future increased  violence, gets a written warning and has it recorded on his file.

They have to meet with me in a safe place so I can tell them what they did to me and how it affected my life.

I demand an apology and assurance there will be no future violence towards me if I have any future dealings with police in my Civil Society activism work.

I wish I could slap their faces for what they did – BUT I DON’T HIT MEN AS A RULE!

A sczophrenic man once told me DON’T TRUST VIOLENCE – and I don’t – shame the police and New Zealand government don’t hold the same high standards – like those ones in the bible they swear an oath to as an agent of The Queen.

I will put my focus about violence towards women back on the shoulders of New Zealands leaders – exactly where it belongs.

I have a traumatic stress disorder that is compounding if I DON’T or can’t deal with stressful situations in my life it makes my  mental health much worse.  Getting an apology and assurance of no future violence from those two officers IS DEALING WITH IT – while it remains un-dealt with it causes me significant stress and harm – that fuels my suicidality, self-harm, bulimia etc.

Please make it stop – that’s all I’m asking, please take at least one serious stress and worry out of my life.  Please make me stop thinking every time I hear a car in my street it is police coming to get me.  Please stop me from being too scared to protest about abusive mental health services, poverty and injustice.

As a woman I am deeply disappointed in the conduct of Insp Donna Howard, IPCA and New Zealand’s most senior police officers who have allowed this to continue – while promoting White Ribbon propaganda.  It breaks my heart every time I see a piece of marketing about violence towards women & then it makes me really really angry!

Then I can stuff down all the fear I feel and go out in the community and tie a whole lot of white ribbons outside the police station, or chalk a fence or the footpath, or put up a sign I have painted, or put a poem on youtube……

Conviction for Wilful Trespass of ACC – OVERTURNED – BOOM!

IN THE HIGH COURT OF NEW ZEALAND

WELLINGTON REGISTRY                                                         CRI-2016-485-15

                                                                                                            (2016) NZHC 1495

 

BETWEEN                 JAYNE ROUTHAN

                                    Appellant

 

AND                           NEW ZEALAND POLICE

                                    Respondent

 

Hearing:                      28 June 2016

 

Counsel:                      Bolland

                                    Wood

 

Judgement:                  1 July 2016

 

 

JUDGEMENT OF WILLIAMS J

 

Introduction

 

  1. Following a judge-alone trial in the District Court, Ms Routhan was convicted of trespass.  She represented herself.  Judge Boshier ordered by way of sentence, that she come up to Court for sentence if called upon within nine months.

     

  2. Ms Routhan was convicted pursuant to s3(1) of the Trespass Act 1980.  This provides that it is an offence to trespass on any place and refuse to leave after being warned by an occupier.   This is generally referred to as the ‘single event’ trespass offence.  This is to be constrasted with a s4(4) of the Act.  That provides it is an offence to trespass within two years of having been earlier warned by an occupier to stay off.  That is the ‘two event’ offence.

 

Facts

  1. Ms Routhan was, and remains, very unhappy with various decisions ACC had made about her and wished to protest about this.  At some time between 12pm and 1 pm on 2 September 2015, Ms Routhan visited the Wellington Branch of ACC.  She set herself up in the foyer within the building.  She displayed two placards each containing handwritten text to the general effect that ACC would kill her through bad, lawless or neglectful decisions.  She also displayed a painting in somewhat abstract form of a person with stab wounds in his or her back.  The items embedded in the persons back included a knife on which the letters “ACC” were painted.

     

  2. She sat on the floor in the reception area next to an armchair and a coffee table.  By being located in this spot she blocked the fire exit door.  A security guard repeatedly asked her to leave the premises.  She refused.  The manager was called and she too asked Ms Routhan to leave.  Ms Routhan still refused.  The police were then called.

 

  1. Meanwhile, the building was partially locked down in the sense that reception staff vacated that area and took refuge behind glass doors.  Automatic sliding doors at the entrance to the reception area were then set to exit only.  Ms Routhan would be permitted to leave, but clients could not enter.  Business was brought to a standstill.

 

  1. When the police arrived, they also asked Ms Routhan to leave.  They arrested her when she again refused to do so.

 

District Court Decision

 

  1. The judge summarised the evidence of the security guard, the manager and the arresting constable.  She also summarised Ms Routhan’s evidence.

     

  2. The judge then found that all elements of the offence of one event trespass were met.  The manager had the necessary delegated authority to act as the occupier of the premises.  Both the security guard and the manager had asked Ms Routhan to leave.  She had refused to do so.

 

  1. The judge also recorded the manager’s reasons for asking Ms Routhan to leave was that she was blocking the fire exit,  the placards and painting were disturbing to clients and here was a risk to client and staff safety.  There were also issues, the Judge noted, in terms of the ability of ACC to transact its ordinary business in light of the partial building lock-down.  These factors entitled the manager to ask Ms Routhan to leave the judge found.

 

Submissions and issues

 

  1. Comprehensive and thoughtful submissions were provided by counsel for the appellant raising a number of separate grounds by which, it was argued, the judge’s decision should be overturned.

     

  2. In light of the view I take of this case, only one ground need be discussed.  This relates to the applicability of the reasonableness standard in the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990 (NZBORA) to decisions to invoke s 3 of the Trespass Act in relation to public buildings.

 

  1. Ms Bolland, for Ms Routhan, argued that Ms Routhan could invoke rights of assembly and expression protected by NZBORA and that this required the officials who involved the Trespass Act to be satisfied that doing so was reasonably necessary in the circumstances.  There was, Ms Bolland submitted, no evidence that officials had made such assessment.  Further, she said, there was no evidence either that Judge Boshier undertook her own analysis of that issue or even understood that NZBORA was relevant.  It followed, Ms Bolland submitted, that the judge had made an error of principle and the conviction should be set aside accordingly.

 

  1. In response, Mr Woods argued that although the judge did not explicitly consider NZBORA or any reasonableness test, she noted that there was evidence of three reasons for the manager asking Ms Routhan to leave and when those reasons taken together, they amounted to sufficient evidence that invoking the Trespass Act was reasonable.  The Judge, in her reasons, took these matters into account.  They were that MS Routhan was blocking the fire exit; the painting showing stab wounds in which ACC was implicated was disturbing for staff and clients; and Ms Routhan’s presence in the building had caused a partial lock-down, interrupting thereby, the ordinary work of the office.  In such circumstances, it was submitted, Ms Routhan’s behaviour was in fact unreasonable, and the corollary was that invoking the Trespass Act was reasonable.  Therefore, even if the Judge had erred, her error would not have affected the result

 

Analysis

 

  1. It is now beyond argument that those exercising public authority may only invoke the Trespass Act against when this is ‘reasonably necessary’, in light of the freedom of peaceful assembly and freedom of expression rights protected by ss 14 and 16 of NZBORA.  Kos J in an earlier case involving Ms Routhan provided the following non-exhaustive list of considerations to be factored in to assessing whether invoking the Trespass Act is, in any particular case, reasonable.  They were:
  1. whether the assembly was unreasonably prolonged;

     

  2. the degree to which the rights and freedoms of other people are affected by the trespass notice;

     

  3. the degree to which the assembly or protest interfered with the rights of the occupier to use the premises for ordinary business or duties free of nuisance;

     

  4. the size of the assembly and its duration;

     

  5. the content of what is being expressed, if the message is one of hatred, racial abuse, intolerance or obscenity; and

     

  6. whether the notice is justified on the grounds of maintenance of public order (such as lack of prior notice to police of the time and location of the event or in terms of management of street traffic).

     

  1. In my view it is plain that Judge Boshier was unaware that NZBORA rights were in play even though the matter had been raised both in evidence and argument.  For that reason, she did not subject the case to the justified limitations analysis required by s 5 of the Act.  That is (in short) that Ms Routhan’s freedom to express her views in government spaces could only be curtailed if this amounted to a reasonable limit, prescribed by law and “demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society”.

     

  2. It follows that the judge necessarily made an error of principle.

 

  1. But was Mr Woods right when he argued that the error was not material because, on the facts, such limitation was reasonable?  This question requires me to assess, in hindsight, the relevant facts alluded to by the Judge.  I am inevitably drawn into making my own assessment in light of the Judge’s failure to do so at first instance.

 

  1. In my view it cannot be said that trespassing Ms Routhan, in the circumstances that obtained on the day in question in the reception area, was reasonable.  She sat there quietly expressing her views that she was entitled to express in terms of s 14 of NZBORA.  She was not aggressive or violent.  She said nothing unless spoken to.  She made it clear that in her view she had a right to do what she was doing.

 

  1. The written placards were not offensive.  The painting was not either.  I accept that the painting might have been if the image had been a photo of a human body with gaping knife wounds, but it was not.  Whatever its merits, it was an abstract work of art and protest.  No reasonable person could have viewed it as offensive.  It is true that the building went into semi lock-down as a result of Ms Routhan’s presence in the reception area.  But that was ACC’s response to Ms Routhan’s presence.  That response too has to be measured against a reasonableness standard.  Mr Woods said that ACC had had experience of Ms Routhan’s protests in the past and management responded as much to their experience of her as they did to her actions on the day.  Whatever Ms Routhan had done in the past, she was being very careful to behave civilly, courteously and reasonably on the day in question.  If she had come to learn where the line was, beyond which freedom of expression crossed into unreasonable interference in the lives of others, then it seems to me that was a good outcome.  She ought not to be prejudiced for having learnt to modify her behaviour so as not to offend, annoy or be a nuisance.

 

  1. Finally, and perhaps most powerfully from ACC’s perspective, MS Routhan was, it was said, blocking a fire exit.  This, it must be accepted, could amount to unreasonable interference with staff and public use of the area.  But whether invoking the Trespass Act is a reasonable response requires a general consideration of the reasonable alternatives that would have been available to officials.  An obvious one comes to mind.  Either the security guard of the manager (or the Police for that matter) could have advised MS Routhan that she was entitled to sit silently and express her views through her placards and painting, but she could not block the fire exit.  An invitation to move a metre or two to the left or right was all that was required.  If she refused, then unreasonable interference in the use of the public space is necessarily established.  If she acceded to the request, then she was safely on her side of the freedom of expression/trespass divide.  There was no evidence of such an invitation being made to Ms Routhan.

 

  1. The appeal must be allowed accordingly.  The conviction and sentence are quashed.

ACC Ministers deny responsibility for Corporation persecuting claimants

After being told by Nikki Kaye’s office and the Speakers office that a police complaint is all I can do about ministers lying about professional care for abuse victims and mentally ill – that is just what I did.

Sent: Friday, 10 June 2016 2:13 p.m.
To: SUTTON, Michael
Subject: Complaint of harm by ACC under Sections 150A 151 155 and 157 of Crimes Act

This is yet another formal police complaint against ACC, Sarah Jones and others? who have again refused to accommodate impairments related to my disability and refused me access to health care – this time the counsellor.  I have the support of the counsellor but she is unable to do anything to stop it.

I just phoned the Minister for ACC’s office and was put through to the Associate Minister (Goldsmiths) office, there I was told by DAVE Goldsmith is the person to contact about individual cases of ACC illegally denying care and yet because ACC is a crown entity that the minister cannot get involved.  I was told to make a complaint to the police, which this is and of course you know I have made several complaints but been ignored.

I don’t understand why police and ACC ministers refuse to provide abused men women and children the treatment care and rehabilitation they are entitled to under NZ law.  They are harming disabled people and those with the power to act are refusing to.

I don’t understand why the police are allowing the government to deny people like me health care we are entitled to and when people commit suicide and harm those around them the police take no action against these immoral corrupt criminally negligent people.

Just making sure police are formally notified so when I finally do get justice I can prove you did nothing while people were dying and the government were purposely denying health care they were legally required to provide.

God please help me, I don’t want to live if I can’t work and I don’t want to live knowing the police don’t uphold the law if the people who are breaking it are the government ie ACC and others.

Sincerely

 

Spent 5 hrs police cells under mental health act for protesting at Police HQ New Zealand

Could someone outside New Zealand PLEASE DO SOMETHING – people in power here are completely fkd and very very good at hiding it.  Seems only when international media etc get hold of a story that they actually do something!  This just tip of the iceberg, 20 police ‘welfare’ visits to my home in past six months, am having nightmares – please someone make them stop.  All I am doing is begging for the health care and justice I am entitled to, then these people phone the police to intimidate me but do nothing to reinstate the health care I’m supposed to be receiving BY LAW.



Sent: Thursday, 12 May 2016 8:36 a.m.
To: tusha.penny@police.govt.nz
Subject: Fw: Formal complaint about being detained under mental health act as a form of intimidation

 

Of course you know this was partly to do with you ignoring me Tusha – I WANT A VOICE – I NEED A VOICE – what I know and what is happening to me is based on science and current legislation, I am an expert in this field – the longer I am censored and not heard the angrier I get and more intense my protests will become.

 

The current NZ Herald campaign is infuriating me, it is such a bunch of rhetoric, so much opinionated misinformation and lies.

 

I want some sort of investigation into what happened and who this person was telling police to detain me under mental health act for my justified protest.  Our society cannot keep suppressing the truth about how NZ government actions over the past 30 years have fuelled this culture of violence – how unprofessional inadequate mental health services and people forced to live in inhuman conditions so stressed to breaking create this violence.  Also addiction and suicide – as I am sure you know.

 

Seeing Mike Bush in the campaign photo for #betterthanthis made me want to be sick – of course we’re not better than this, we are this and successive governments have created it -but take no responsibility for it and dump blame on their victims.

 

People like that security officer are unable to accept the rage, distress, accountability and FACTS I challenge those in authority with – they like to pretend everything is great in New Zealand and people like me don’t exist.  It is imperative I do what I do according to the Milgram Experiment and even my new lawyer who said people like me are essential in a civilized society.

 

Please be aware I am petrified scared of mental health services, much more than any organisation, I have been treated so badly by them and lies spread in the community by the mental health team.  I have been denied care at some of my most desperate moments and didn’t react well to them in the cells either.  Awesome that the supervising officer (in black) allowed me to speak freely, I told them exactly what I thought of mental health services.  Advised them they were getting the result of years of hatred and psychological torture by other mental health workers, also my rage at what they were doing to me and so many others.  Sometimes I think these officers are thinking to themselves how much they wish they could say the same things I do.

 

Sincerely

Subject: Formal complaint about being detained under mental health act as a form of intimidation

Dear Sir/Madam,

 

Yesterday I was detained in the cells for 5 hours under the mental health act – Section 109 it was referred to repeatedly by officers.  I treat having my freedom taken from me seriously and so does the law.

 

This was as a result of a protest I was doing at Police Headquarters in Wellington about corruption, rich vs poor, magna carta violations, medical neglect, psychological torture, criminal negligence and abuse in ACC and mental health services against disabled mentally injured abuse victims and mentally ill people.  This is the topic I protest about on an regular basis, this is what I am an expert in, this is what I am subjected to and this is what most know is the reality of our appalling ACC and mental health system.

 

I don’t deny I ‘LOST IT’ and couldn’t stop swearing (I now have a tourettes type disorder) so should have been taken away from the scene.  This is an informal agreement I have with the police when I am so angry about what is happening to me and what is happening to people I know.  This particular event was triggered by yet another police visit to my home – number 20 I think it is now, threatening action for begging for police to help me and act on my complaints of harm by ACC and mental health under sections 150A 151 155 and 157 of the Crimes Act – while at the same time dragging me through court for a minor charge of screaming at ACC for help.  Also the current NZ Herald misleading government propaganda marketing campaign about violence in our society.

 

What should have happened is I should have been arrested for disorderly behaviour, spent 2 hours in the cells and released with a pre-charge warning, when I had calmed down a bit.  Instead what happened was a person at the scene who said he was a diplomatic security officer instructed the police officer to have me detained under Section 109 – mental health act, the officer did as he was told.  This man had only minutes previously been insulting me and ‘winding me up’ even more with his sarcasm.  I objected to his vindictive insulting suggestion and act of serious intimidation under Bill of Rights but was ignored.  I want this matter investigated and this security guard sacked for his appalling behaviour.

 

Where did this man get his authority over police?  Is this another example of a rich person getting superior rights to a poor person, which is against Westminster law?  It is certainly another act of intimidation for my justified angry protests about what is happening to me and so many other disabled abuse victims in our cruel corrupt society.  Threatening someone who is protesting with being ‘locked up’ and drugged up under the mental health act is an extremely intimidating act.

 

There was a struggle with the police officer at Police Headquarters and this security man, which has covered me in bruises, was traumatising and did not need to happen, when I am arrested I go peacefully with any officer, I know the process and I expect it to be followed.  I have this issue with laws not being followed by people in authority when I am expected to follow them.

 

I am a civil society actor with a disability I know the process so well now that I know what happened during this arrest was not right and not legal.  After I was arrested/detained I was compliant with officers, was not handcuffed, did not swear but was repeatedly objected to what was happening under Bill of Rights, Human Civil and Political Rights.

 

The CATT team /mental health came and went as I knew they would.  When I was being released I was told what a pleasure it is to deal with me.  Police, other than this security person were awesome, as almost all of them are – why wouldn’t they be, they agree with what I’m protesting about, they’re dealing with mentally ill people who cannot get services every day – like the woman in the cell beside me.

 

I look forward to your investigation and action on this complaint.

NO RESPECT – Poem dedicated to Ombudsman & NZ Police

Police have really got to stop all this shit
The visits, feigned concern, discrimination – ALL OF IT!

All reports I have read say they’re supposed to protect
But for my welfare, my dignity, my peace – NO RESPECT!

The Ombudsman doesn’t want to hear what I see
So sends round the police to SCARE THE HELL OUT OF ME!

enD

Grrrr

Wrote this in response to a visit from police at 11pm last night for a welfare check, thanks to the Ombudsman and a 7 hour delay by Police Communications to allocate the job – someone in Masterton doesn’t like me.  Not surprised, I’ve pissed a lot of them off, they don’t like people who stand up to them and their stupid degrading rules.

Have made a complaint to IPCA and contacted my psychiatrist to get some advice (so he’s on my side).  Spent all morning trying to sort things out, still freaking out about what happened.

 

Private Prosecution lodged 19/6/2015 against John Key – Under Section 39 of Magna Carta 1215

So been thinking about all this stuff I know and how the government are ignoring the Magna Carta, and then while I’m working out what pieces of law I can get John Key under I realise I can use the Magna Carta as a legislative reference and prosecute him under that.

It was only at the last minute I added Section 39, but pleased I did, cause having the police used to intimidate me when I was asking for the health care I knew I was entitled to was not right and not just.  Of course they will say there was a judgement of my peers or law that says suicidal people must have police sent to their homes to protect them.  But with all my art and poetry I’ll prove what they are doing is discrimination and they have purposely put in these measures to stop people getting the heatlh care they need.

39. No freemen shall be taken or imprisoned or disseised or exiled or in any way destroyed, nor will we go upon him nor send upon him, except by the lawful judgment of his peers or by the law of the land.

MY RESPONSE

Shit just realised I didn’t take a photocopy of the Charging Documents – will have to go in next week and see if they will get me one – you can’t remember everything.  As you can see what I have said is pretty amateur but I know judges give lots of leeway to people who are not lawyers, they are more interested in fairness and justice and that the person has given it their best shot.

19 June 2015

 

Statement by J.E.R, date of birth 00/00/1965, of street, Carterton

 

I am about to start this and the emotion is overwhelming me, how the police have been used to intimidate and bully me for demanding and needing the professional health care promised under ACC, health, disability, criminal, human rights and bill of rights laws is persecution and torture.

 

How I am treated by the police varies greatly depending on the person,  I would like to refer to my police file at this point to highlight all the times I have been seen by police, have been detained by police and been prosecuted by police. 

 

I am not able to look at my police file as it makes me very unwell, I got a copy of it a few years ago and on page 3 it said I was ‘mental’ and a danger to police safety.  I wasn’t able to read past that and have had a rocky relationship with police since ACC illegally cut all my care in 2009, after National became the government and installed neo-liberal Business Round Table advocate John Judge, then Paula Rebstock.

 

Can the judge please consider my police file as being evidence to what has been happening me as I fight for the care I know I am entitled to.  Please note that all complaints to police about me being suicidal are from people who are public servants and/or agents of the government.  I would tell these people I was begging for help or justice from, how bad I felt and they would phone police but never help me get care.  This is a gross miscarriage of justice and proof what is happening in the real world I live in is very different to what the government and these agencies promote.

 

It makes me want to be violently ill when I think that forcing suicidal people to take their clothes off and put on the crazy suit is police policy and when I tried to challenge it as being extremely degrading and against human rights laws I was ignored.  They only got my clothes off me once, during my first protest, chalking Journalists are Maggots on the Times Age building in Masterton.  When I got down to my underwear I was told to take them off as well, I had my period and said I couldn’t – I was told I had to.  That is when my respect for the police and the government ended.  I told the officer I would fight her for my underwear as there was no way I was going to let blood run down my leg in front of so many men.  This policy is not law and therefore was not subject to scrutiny under Bill of Rights and Human Rights laws.

 

Over the past 30 years as neo-liberalism has relentlessly destroyed our unique Kiwi culture these attacks and laws on suicidal people have steadily increased.  It are the policies that are driving people to suicide and then the government and authorities blame the victims for a completely human response to an inhuman living environment. 

 

New Zealand is a beautiful country, there is enough resources for everybody to have the necessaries of life.  Giving massive tax cuts to the wealthiest people and organisations in this country while at the same time stopping poor people (rich people can still get this care and justice) from getting the health care and justice they are entitled to is immoral and against the law.

 

Also the massive social issues that have arisen due to high unemployment and concentration of wealth into the richest 20% of society – are being somehow blamed on the victims of these social issues, like violence, mental illness, poverty, ill health etc.  It was very sad to see all the changes that have been made to the Social Welfare and Social Security Acts over the past decade, all aimed at blaming those who can’t get work.  When we all know deregulation, free trade and neo-liberalism was instrumental in hundreds of thousands of manufacturing jobs moving offshore to be done by people who are treated like slaves in poorer countries.

 

I will be addressing this issue in another private charge in the near future.

 

I told a judge recently, when going through the court system over my protests at Masterton Hospital that I will take no more – and I won’t.  No more are you going to treat disabled, abused, mentally injured and ill people like you are.  Everybody knows it is wrong – EVERYBODY.

 

I know other people who are degraded and persecuted by police for being suicidal and I have experiences of people who attempted suicide who were living with me that I would like to be able to present to the court.  I cannot talk about them now I am too unwell.

 

I would like all book of poetry The Black Book ISBN 978-0-473-31199-5 to form part of this case but I do not have the resources to do a copy for each of the five charges.  I would also like all my photographs to form part of this.

 

Please help me get a lawyer, there is so much you don’t know, so many things.  These people have driven me insane, they have turned my family and community against me, just because I couldn’t get the professional health care I was entitled to.

 

I can’t go on with this document.

 

Kia kaha to us all.

Abuse of tazers in New Zealand for mentally injured abuse victims

I didn’t get tazered but I have been threatened with it when I was very unwell, extremely fragile and suicidal – this is police procedure.  I have also seen statistics about how many mentally ill people who are being refused treatment and care are being tazered and having the dogs set on them.  This is neo-liberal terrorism and I intend to take this to a judge and as far as I can through court!

ACC Disputes Tribunal phoned the police when I rang them extremely upset and begging for my care back (I had been waiting five years and won two ACC reviews).

Police arrived at the house I had only recently moved into with a woman I know, we were both abuse victims and really struggling with poverty.  I thought they were looking for some offender or something but it was for me, the forced me to go with them to Lower Hutt police station for two hours.  While I was there I sang, recited poetry and went mad about being detained – as loud as I could.  CATT team came and went and the police took me home – although I was strong on the way there and in the cells on the way home I was silent, curled over in the back of the police car rocking backwards and forwards with my hands over my ears all the way back to the house.

After this my flatmate and friend, who owned the house, became abusive and started putting knives around the house, so I was forced to move again which made my stress disorder even worse.

Government use the police to intimidate and bully mentally injured abuse victims and mentally ill people after cutting professional services through ACC and mental health.  This is a gross miscarriage of justice and I am going to spend my life making sure those people in our government who have created this nightmare are bought to justice.

I’ve had an epiphany after reading George Irvin’s book about the Super Rich and rise of inequality in developed countries, except the 5 Nordic countries.

I am so so angry, also after watching Campbell Live last night and those revolting parole board members, degrading and grilling that poor man.  Neo-liberals knew cutting taxes to the rich, making the poor pay more tax, driving manufacturing jobs overseas, then cutting large amounts of welfare and healthcare to the poorest people was going to cause crime, violence, addiction, stealing, deaths (suicides and murders) and serious dysfunction in society – they did it anyway.  The Nordic countries never did, they kept high taxes to the wealthy and good safety nets for the poor and disabled.  They kept their standards of living, they are some of the most peaceful countries on earth – while New Zealand’s has slipped more than any other country in the world.  We are a divided nation full of dissension envy, hatred, poverty, homelessness, broken families, broken people – where the educated and rich despise the uneducated and poor (I am currently doing papers at Victoria I can show you proof of this bigotry in power point slides).

Lately I keep thinking of the National Anthem and how those words are a promise and part of the Constitution of this country.  YEAH RIGHT!

I am definitely going to be writing to John Campbell and each one of those parole board members and voicing my disgust at the part they are playing in persecuting victims of a cruel immoral corrupt neo-liberal political agenda financed by the super rich.  That man on the television was the perfect example of a statistic – he would not have been in jail 30 years ago, he would have been working in the Railways, living in a railways house, raising his family and enjoying what our environment has to offer.  If New Zealand had continued with High Taxes and good welfare, health and justice provision where would we be now?  I GUARANTEE YOU WE WOULD HAVE THE SAME SOCIAL STATISTICS AND ECONOMIC STABILITY (GOVT WEALTH) as the Nordic countries are enjoying.

We would have $20/hr minimum wage, we would have 33 hour working week, we would be innovators in eco-science, sustainability and a leading example of social functioning to the world.  We were going that way until our government was corrupted and we were all brainwashed into believing neo-liberalism was the only way.  ACTUALLY WE WERE CONNED, and the people that did it are running our country still, they’re in parliament, in the public service and in our judiciary.

Yesterday Shane was going on and on about the Saudi sheep and how the government are paying this creep out for loss of profits when we stopped live sheep exports years ago.  If the government can pay out one man $millions then they can pay me out for cutting tariffs, cutting taxes to the rich and cutting services and professional health care to people in New Zealand.  They can pay me out for deregulation and free-trade on a scale seen nowhere else in the world.  “Paul Ormerod in his book Death of Economics said  – NZ went from being one of the most highly regulated countries in the world to one of the most unregulated.  Something no other country would have dared for fear of political suicide….”

I am definitely going to find out how to take a case to the High Court as a lay-person, I am going to challenge the government on paying out to this man for being offended, but they won’t pay out to a suicidal sexual abuse victim they have been persecuting and denying entitlements to for the past 13 years.  I am going to test this in court, going to use the law to fuck up the judiciary if I possibly can and all the way through it make sure I have the UN watching how things unfold.  I know I have a legal and moral case for them to answer, this is going to be fun (in a twisted sort of way – keeps the brain occupied.  tehehehe (I’m a red tape whore and its a red tape war.)

I might do some research into what each citizen in New Zealand was worth in 1979 (taking into consideration we owned all the power companies, railways, telecommunications etc).  I know for a fact each citizen now OWES $15,000 that the government has borrowed against them to pay for running our country – BECAUSE OF COURSE THE GREEDY DISGUSTING SUPER FKN RICH DON’T WANT TO!

I believe Kiwis trusted the people leading, our country, they gave Roger Douglas a knighthood for Gods sake.  How could you give someone who has destroyed our culture, our peace and our Gods Own way of life a knighthood – these people in charge have gone mad.  We also trusted that our media would be honest and our politicians and their advisers would be honest, honourable and have integrity –  WE WERE WRONG.

After watching Campbell Live last night I then watched Poldark and the similarities in what the rich/powerful people looked like and the contempt they had for the poor was so similar to today I was horrified.  Also the recent WWI bullshit just reminded me the lesson from all of that unnecessary death and destruction was DON’T TRUST THE PEOPLE IN CHARGE – THEY’RE IN IT FOR THEMSELVES AND THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT YOUR WELFARE OR YOUR LIFE!

I am going to chalk this stuff and write poetry about this epiphany.

Woke up this morning crying, not a good sign, my heart was breaking – ACC are taking months to get this meeting with Alan Doris sorted, let alone getting all the care reinstated, am barely keeping it together – hope nothing bad happens.  I am sure they are doing this on purpose?  I told them on the first day it was urgent, that was almost two months ago now – my poor psyche is struggling to cope.  Bulimia back, trying to keep moving, keep focused on fighting back, stay alive.  I wonder how any of these revolting people could understand what it is like to try and function when you are suicidal, when on a bad day you can be assaulted with thoughts of suicide for hours on end.  Complex PTSD is a serious life-threatening disorder and I have to remember that, it is only my knowledge of psychology and how my disability operates that has kept me alive.

I have been harmed by those corrupt neo-liberals stopping all my care under ACC in 2009, I am going to sue those mother fkrs.  I can prove they purposely caused me harm, that is illegal in a civilized society (did you know there is a UN document that sets out what a civilized society is – I should post it here).

Kia kaha all my friends.
