Millionaire businessman gets fined $1,000 for purchasing 4 ounces of cocaine and gets permanent name suppression, meanwhile those who aren't the elite are getting jailed for small scale cannabis growing.
The downgraded manslaughter conviction for the death of Moko Rangitoheriri reflects a trend in New Zealand of political systems disguising the real nature of crime.
Not being honest about crime leads to tragedy and contrary to National’s spin, crime is not down – it’s up.
All sorts of offenders are now being warned rather than charged. Since 2008 the total number of incidents police have attended is up 105,000 or more than 20 per cent. Meanwhile the number of people charged is down 3000.
This was a murder of the very worst sort and the charges should have never been downgraded.

Once dubbed the 'Amazon excavator' for her drain-digging abilities, she was a crack rifle shot, a rugby coach and, in 1947, the first woman president of a New Zealand provincial rugby union branch. She was also an expert in Maori herbal remedies, a healer and founding president of the Maori Women's Welfare League. - Whina Cooper
