Rena Captain jailed for 7months, Iti gets 2 and a half years - welcome to NZ's Louis Crimp factor
Is it just me, but shouldn't crashing a ship and spilling 400 000 liters of oil get a far longer sentence than making a Molotov cocktail? 7 months in jail compared to two and a half years? WTF?
What was the real threat to NZ here? Crashing ships into our coastline or roleplaying at freedom fighter? (When corporates do what Tame Iti did, they call it a paintball retreat).
This astounding difference in prison sentence against the actual damage to NZ will appear even more egregious once the IPCA report is released.
A terrible week for justice in NZ.
