I blame the parents myself. They were most likely teenagers themselves when they spawned this filth. Reminds me of Elvis singing in the ghetto’ ….. ‘and his mama cried’…. I doubt that he could have pulled the trigger if the safety was on. Of course he is merely alleged. He is entitled to the presumption of innocence and a fair trial.

Critic, I really do pity your continuing negative outlook, cheer up and look on the bright side, there are plenty of good things out there to enjoy.#1695424criticMemberMember since: June 6, 2011

cant see what you mean by a “negative attitude” when I was “positively agreeing” with the need for prisons being there are crazy crimes against the person….
that was breaking news when I put it up
Ever had a gun pointed at you? … I wouldn’t wish it on another and that is positively so.

‘I blame the parents’. ‘Spawning this filth’.
You really are gravely due for the grave with this aging saying it’s now a joke, and this comment that is ‘filth’ in itself except it an in appropriate term to use for people in such difficulties, or any living being in fact.#1695519jimmypMemberMember since: June 2, 2017

Jane 078, I don’t quite understand your reply. It appears that Critic and me have some common ground here. Nobody should be pointing a gun at anybody. If they do then they are ” filth” in my book. I suppose, someone ( two) is/are genetically and behaviourally responsible for them as well as themselves.
I perhaps wrongly assume that they represent a family when they go out and do things? As you can see in my comment, I assert that they are entitled to basic rights which they shall have obviously. If the allegation is correct they will ultimately be kept away from society unless they show hopeful signs of reform. You can see that there is the need for a trial here because there is an allegation that they pulled a trigger. That is not physically possible if a safety catch is on. Pointing a gun is one thing, very bad. That is threatening to kill/ presenting a firearm. Pulling a trigger makes it even worse, attempted murder. And, obviously pulling a trigger with the safety catch off and a cartridge in the chamber would be worse still. Murder if the person dies. The facts need to be clarified exactly so this person can be dealt with based on what actually happened ( or not happened). I have not had a gun pointed at me yet. I expect that one day it may happen. I hope not but I have rehearsed what I would do many times because I used to work in a gas station at a time when there was significant cash there. I would start the day thinking that it might happen and go through the drill in my head.
Oddly enough my first gas station customer was Mr. AA Thomas formerly of Pukekawa. A fine gentleman. He wanted to know where Bryce St in Kihikihi was? I didn’t know who he was and I told him that if he went to the Police Station, they could direct him there. His reply was a bit unexpected by me. ” Bloody hell i’m not going near those pricks”. He was a regular customer after that. Due to other work I have come to know his wider family. I once asked him if he was Mr Thomas and he denied it. Not long after that I sold him a Sunday paper with his photo on the front page as it was celebrating 25 years since his release. I have experienced other forms of violence such as a knife held to my back. Not good.
