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
