A silly season for news no doubt but some things caught my eye.
It looks like the crime solution rate by the New Zealand police got a major boost this week. No, not an increase in convictions for appalling child abuse. Chance would be a fine thing!
Instead the courts convicted a man, who
"stood on a bridge and exposed his genitals to people boating on the Avon, that the boat contained a five-year-old girl, her mother, and grandfather."It was all part of National Nude Day but that didn't sway the cops or the judge, who gaoled him for four months.
To me it looks like in New Zealand it's easier to get away with killing a child than waving your willie at them.
Best wishes for 2009 anyway.
