Killing our children is murder! There are NO excuses that can or will ever justify murdering our children. You and only you are ultimately responsible for your own actions.
These are just some of the many precious souls who have died in recent years from abuse or neglect. Apart from their untimely deaths, they also now have in common that their killers all only got manslaughter convictions and ridiculous sentences to match.
Enough is enough New Zealand. Stand up with the rest of our country on Monday, 27th June and say no more!
My Dad is cool, he’s a solo Dad of 5. My brother he’s 18, I'm 16, my sister 13 and my little brothers are 4 and 2. We were living in Hamilton, Dad was working, he’s a painter. We came up here in March because my close cousin, drowned at Hunua falls.
We were just trying to get over my cousin’s funeral and then I got told that I have Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and that there’s a tumour in my lower back. Everything, it all went down hill from there. When I got told, I didn’t think about anything, I just started crying. It was hard to take in. The doctors said I needed chemo therapy straight away so it wouldn’t spread and that the best place for that was Starship hospital in Auckland. At first Dad said it was to far for us but then he moved my family up from Hamilton to my Aunty’s here in Mangere (the mother of the cousin who'd died).
The first treatment it made me really cold, really weak and really sick. I hated being in hospital. The hardest part was losing my long hair, I always used to play with it and plait it. When my hair starting coming out, my tears started falling down. Two days it was all gone.
I was in hospital for a month. I wasn’t able to swallow, I got infections, I had 2 massive seizures. I had to have antibiotics and that lead to kidney problems so not only do I have cancer, I have kidney problems. When I was finally allowed to go home I was really happy. I told my Dad I was hungry, I wanted to go to McDonald's. We celebrated getting out, I ordered my favorite Big Mac combo and then we went home to Aunty's.
There were 15 people living at Aunty’s. I slept on a mattress in a room I shared with my little brothers. It wasn’t really good because the hospital said I had to wear a mask because I could easily get infected. It was nice to be around family, I didn’t want to talk about having cancer, we’d talk about my cousin, I miss him. Dad had stopped working to look after all of us. He would go to WINZ for appointments, he told them about me having cancer, about us. They did nothing. He went to Housing NZ, told them, they couldn’t find us a house “too full” they said “too full”. We were stuck at Aunty’s things got really tense, so we had leave. My Dad heard about what the marae was doing and said “let’s try the marae.”
We were nervous cause we’re Samoan. At first we thought, 'oh no there’s not gonna be islanders or anything,’ but once we got here everyone was kind and loving. It’s pretty cool here. We are happy, they are helping us to get a house which is a huge relief for my Dad. He still has to take me to Starship for my check ups, blood tests, to flush my line and to change the dressing. He's still stressed out, but I'm really proud of my Dad.
I hope we get a house. So we can all live again. So my Dad can go back to work, he's a hard worker. My brother wants to get a job. My sister she likes her school and I want my little brother’s to have a home. I feel responsible for all of this.
I asked B what she’d like most of all in life and she said right now, a holiday to Samoa to see her Mum’s family, and she wants to meet the wrestler Roman Reigns.
She wants to be cured of cancer, of course.
And a house. She’d like to get a house.
B is for Brave 💖💕
----------------------------- Although the past few months have been extremely difficult, the light at the end of the tunnel is becoming brighter. B and her aiga will be moved into a home this week (Tuesday) and will get to focus on her healing without the pressures of having no home.
Ngā tauwhirotanga nui ki runga ki a koe e B me to whānau, i tēnei rā, a haere ake nei. Paimārire ❤️
NO MORE IGNORING NEW ZEALAND. WHAT COULD A THREE YEAR OLD POSSIBLY EVER DO TO DESERVE THIS?
Part One: I can't apologise for what you are about to read. It is sadly all true and what happened to an innocent little three year old boy. Below are extracts from the summary of facts into the death of Moko. We have decided to share this so everybody is aware why this needs to stop in our country. No more excuses. Children cannot stop child abuse. Adults can. STAND UP and say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! We have shamed away from child abuse in our country for far too long and it is going to change!
I have only three words left to say before you begin to read.
THIS IS MURDER!
IN THE HIGH COURT OF NEW ZEALAND ROTORUA REGISTRY CRI 2015-069-001162 BETWEEN THE QUEEN AND SHAILER, Tania & HAEREWA, David William SUMMARY OF FACTS
On 10 August 2015 at 3.00pm, the defendant SHAILER phoned the ‘111’ emergency line requesting an ambulance. She told the 111 operator that Moko had fallen from a wood pile yesterday, sustained severe bruising, but had been fine earlier in the day. She told the operator that he was now really cold, unconscious, not breathing properly and that his stomach was really hard.
On arrival ambulance staff located Moko lying face down in the hallway with the defendant SHAILER kneeling by his feet. The defendant HAEREWA was present in the home, keeping all of the other children clear of the ambulance staff.
The visual injuries and condition of Moko was such that the Paramedic staff simply scooped Moko up and rushed him straight to the emergency department at the Taupo Hospital.
On arrival at the hospital, Moko was taken straight into the resuscitation room, it was noted that he had extensive facial injuries, with extensive swelling to his whole face; both eyes were swollen to such an extent that staff were not able to open his eyelids to check his pupils.
His abdomen was extremely distended, he had bruising on the front and back of his body, abrasions and what appeared to be bite marks to his face, and on his arms.
Staff were unable to obtain a body temperature for Moko, because he was too cold for any of the measurement devices. Later a core temperature of 20 degrees was obtained. The normal body temperature is 36.8 degrees.
Due to the severity of Moko’s condition the Taupo staff made contact with Starship Hospital at 3.45pm and a helicopter and staff travelled to Taupo with a plan to transfer Moko to Auckland. However, hospital staff were unable to revive Moko and at 10.00pm that evening he was pronounced dead.
A homicide investigation commenced.
A post mortem examination was carried out. The pathologist determined that the direct cause of Moko’s death was multiple blunt force injuries.
The lethal injuries that caused Moko’s death were lacerations and haemorrhage deep within Moko’s abdomen, together with older bruising and damage to his bowel, the combination of which had caused his bowel to rupture. The leaking of faecal matter into Moko’s abdomen had caused peritonitis and septic shock.
Moko had moderate brain oedema (swelling of the brain).
In addition, Moko had significant clots and haemorrhage beneath the scalp and between the brain and the covering of the brain. These injuries were of different densities and represented multiple injuries inflicted over a time span of days.
In addition to the lethal findings, Moko had multiple blunt force injuries of various ages all over his body. He had: * Facial/neck contusions and abrasions including periorbital haematomas; * Patterned injury consistent with human bite mark on his left cheek, resolving; * Patterned injury suggestive of human bite mark on right cheek, resolving; * Lacerations to his chin, neck, ears, lower lip, mucosa including fremulun and gum; * Abrasions to his upper lip and ears; * Haemorrhages to both eyes; * Contusions on multiple ribs; * Contusion on his right testes; * Multiple abrasions and contusions over his skin surface of his chest and abdomen; * Patterned injuries consistent with human bite marks that were resolving, two on his left arm, one on his right forearm and one on his right shoulder; * Additional abrasions and contusions, some of which were also suggestive of human bite marks.
Please read and if you can't read it, at least share it. We NEED all of New Zealand united as we STAND UP and start making a change on Monday, 27th June. The support is huge but it needs to be as so is the problem. ~ Karrie
