So Mercury Energy has one of their thugs shut the power off to a Pacific Island family which switches off the oxygen machine to a mother with heart and lung disease and she dies. Can anyone of us imagine a more despicable corporate action? Last week it was government owned dirty filthy coal companies paying to put a spy into environmental groups, this week it is State owned Enterprises killing people for a $168 debt. It is difficult to shrug off the feeling that this would not have happened if the family was white – the very day before the Mercury Energy thug switched off the life support system in this home, he was at a retirement village 24 hours earlier showing discretion NOT to switch off the power – so the thug had the discretion to turn it off, he decided not to for an old persons home but yes for the pacific island home.
Welcome to NZ.
Mother said - Just give us a chance
Hooked up to an oxygen machine and seriously ill with heart and lung disease, Auckland woman Folole Muliaga pleaded "for a chance". But her plea fell on deaf ears and a contractor cut off her power after saying he was "just doing his job". About 2 1/2 hours later the 44-year-old mother of three was dead. Mercury Energy has described the death as "an absolute tragedy" and has launched an internal investigation.
