Look at our boy Bailey Kurariki now, oh we're all so proud
Kurariki back in jail charged with assault
Bailey Junior Kurariki, the country's youngest convicted killer, is back behind bars charged with assaulting a woman. Kurariki was arrested in South Auckland yesterday on a charge of assaulting Janie Martin, believed to be his girlfriend. He appeared today in the Manukau District Court and was remanded in custody to appear again on May 6. No plea was entered and no application for bail or suppression of his name was lodged.
LOOK AT OUR LITTLE BOY FOLKS, isn’t he the poster boy for throwing kids in jail? Hasn’t he been the shining example of what a fuck up our prison system fuelled by our lynch mob mentality can create? I love how rednecks want more prison time, but don’t want to see the results of that prison time, they never seem to want to talk about Bailey, tell me lynchers – what do you think happens when boys go through corrections, seriously, do you believe Simon Powers and his mates in National that prisons are all 3 star hotels and prisoners love the place or would that contradiction force tool much soul searching?
The sad inevitability of Bailey going back inside is as much our failure as a society as his.
Round of applause everyone, now while I criticised heavily the idea that we should throw a 12 year old into prison for a botched robbery when all he did was say ‘ready now’, look at how he’s turned out! His clown of an accomplice hit Michael Choy once in the head, leaving Michael screaming in pain, they took the pizzas and money off him, walked Michael (screaming and bleeding) back to his pizza delivery car and then went back inside to eat the pizzas and split the money (hardly criminal masterminds were they), Michael Choy was then robbed again by a couple of teenagers who had watched the initial robbery from across the street (great neighborhood) and Michael crawls out of his car, bangs on an old couples door and dies in the garden. Awful and hideous for Michael Choy and his family, but 7 years in prison for a 12 year old? Unbelievable! I remember saying at the time that this was a joke of a sentence that would only doom society to having to deal with a furious young man who we’ve thrown onto the scrapheap of prison to feed our own sense of vengeance. His foundation years as an adult have been spent inside our underfunded and broken penal system and while I criticized a system that would lock up a 12 year old, look at how well balanced our Bailey has turned out now.
Well done NZ, silly me for doubting the wisdom of throwing kids in jail.
