The wrong person to try and intimidate

January 16th, 2012 at 11:00 am by David Farrar

The ODT report:

law-reform activist is shaken but unfazed despite death threats and an attack on his Dunedin residence over the weekend.

A brick, with a note attached, was thrown through the window of his Kaikorai address at 11.05pm on Friday, landing 4m across the living room floor. The note said: “Leave Gods [sic] laws or be struck down dead”.

How lovely.

“They’re obviously from people who are opposed to the law change I’m seeking. They’re obviously not very bright, because they glued all the letters, but hand-wrote the address on the envelope,” he said.

Dumb and dumber.

The offender picked the wrong target in Davison, who is head of the University of Western Cape forensic laboratory in South Africa.

“I’m going to get the letters DNA-tested at our laboratory in Cape Town … you can easily get profiles from stamps and envelopes,” he said.

“Then I’ll provide the results to the police.”

Excellent. Great initiative.

    “but hand wrote the address”.

    Really dumb. You don’t need an address if you hand deliver (ie throw through window).

    Not a clever individual at all – so we are supposed to leave it to God to decide who lives and dies, but if someone violates that we can take justice into our own hands? Interesting theology this person has…

    Who’ll compare the test results with what Sean?

    Big noting here, why would’t he just hand over the documents to the New Zealand Police for testing?

    Because I doubt they’d do expensive DNA testing for something like this. And I suspect because he is head of the University of Western Cape forensic DNA laboratory.

    What the hell PEB? Of course he’s going to take an interest! He’s had a brick thrown through his window! And is involved in DNA forensics! That’s why!

    The letter needs to be given to the cops now, so the chain of evidence is more reliable.

    They won’t be able to use results from DNA that’s been sent off privately, any defence lawyer would have that smartly blown out of the water.

    What they do is get it sampled and put into the library and if the match is there they have their offender. They take samples constantly now to build up the bank and cross reference new samples that come in like this one.

    He is big noting.

    I’ve seen plenty of Christians do stupid things, but I find this one to be frankly unbelievable.

    More likely someone who thought it would be funny for whatever reason.

    Not often I agree with you, DPF, but on this issue – 100%.

    The craven cowards who attacked Davidson’s house should be made to go work in a Hospice. Once they see a few people die from the ravages of cancer – including the charming sight of vomiting up their own faeces – they might think less of their deity, and more about their fellow humans.

    Pauleastbay – can I lob a brick through your window, to test your response? Not “big noting”, just curious. Twat.

    Feel free Francis – read the comments, everything he needs to get things done are here in New Zealand.

    He could have assisted his mother and carried on with his life, no one needed to know.
