Glenn claims extortion

July 10th, 2013 at 2:00 pm by David Farrar

The Herald reports:

Sir is adamant his $2 million inquiry into family violence in New Zealand will go ahead, and says accusations that he hit a woman in Hawaii more than a decade ago are completely false. …

He told Campbell Live last night the accusations were fabricated by the American woman, his former personal assistant, to extort money.

He implied she had psychiatric issues and said she re-ignited the claim 10 days ago hoping for another payout.

He continues:

Two Hawaiian policemen knocking on his door at 1.30am said the woman had filed an assault complaint against him and took him into custody. He was released on bail the next day. The woman dropped her claims, and the case never went before a judge, he said.

“There was subsequently no case to answer. If both parties agree there is no case to answer, it’s no contest,” he said.

However, he said she then filed a lawsuit against him for unfair dismissal.

“She was a case of extortion, I said I wouldn’t pay her out. But [the employment mediator] said ‘look, have a small settlement, whatever I can get it down to’ so I agreed to that in the end only because of the length of time and the harassment etcetera, but I only paid that strictly – and it’s in the court papers – for payments of her psychiatric bills.”

The settlement was $80,000 as opposed to the $300,000 she was seeking.

Inevitably, I imagine she will sell her story to a media outlet.

    Oh so he paid the young female victim off, to shut her up. I guess that is one of benefits of being incredibly wealthy and powerful. I wonder how it would have gone had the accused been an average working Joe ?

    Of course this sort of thing is to be expected given that Glenn comes from NZ, a country that he claims is 2nd in the world for rapes.

    Selling her story?
    She will be shit out of luck in NZ. Fairfax run Stuff nation where people write for free, NBR has a paywall but won’t pay for their cut paste blog content and commentary and NZH don’t pay their own journos enough for them to drink anywhere but The Shakespeare. That leaves women’s mags.

    I don’t know much about Owen Glenn, but it seems like every time he’s given away millions of his own money trying to help the betterment of New Zealand, people just want to hurl shit at him. It’s disgraceful.

    People are so uncomfortable with the idea of wealthy patrons in this country. It’s like it’s too hard to say “thank you” or something.

    RRM, you are missing the elephant in the room.

    The people hurling shit at him are simply applying the same standards he applies to other men in similar situations. He sponsors anti male hate groups and blatantly lied about NZ rape statistics, which is an attack on all NZ men.

    I really think you need to familiarise yourself with the level of misandry from the people he supports. Then you may see why my views are so strong on this sort of thing. The people he supports are not out to stop violence, that is just a way to gain public support and funding. They are out to advance extreme feminist doctrine and destroy the traditional family and male gender roles. Wake up and think. You have been fooled.

    I really wish I could be speaking out in support of Glenn, but what is good for the goose is good for the gander.

    I am sure Glenn would even sponsor her… if the offender were Hone the timber worker.

    This whole sorry affair is an indictment against our society.

    The liberal left crow long and hard about the ‘tyranny of the church’ but what have they actually replaced it with? I’ll tell you what, their own witch hunters.

    They have the “human rights inquisition” that forces schools to hand over money to transients with “hurt feelings” and investigating the abuse of the words “kia Ora” and “fag”, little Hitlers running across the land looking for heretics and “intolerance” to ensure the purity of the doctrine.

    Owen Glenn is not my favorite person, not even close in fact, but I resent with a passion the way he has been treated by our thought police.
    His crimes are simple, he has money, and he wanted to do something that was free of leftist ideological domination, he wanted to find some answers that didn’t necessarily involve “the sacred sacraments” of cultural Marxism.

    We do not live in a balanced society, we are just as dominated by ideologues as we ever have been, and it makes me sick.

    It’s time to push this shit back.

    As always in these situations there will be 3 sides to this story Glenns the woman and the truth all 3 will be mutually exclusive.

    What I have seen of him IMHO he is not someone to mess with and after 3 failed marriages and a bunch of young tarts hanging off his arms in every photo op hes probably managed to piss off more people than Ive had hot dinners.

    Just saying so.

    My comments regarding Glenn are a piss take to highlight the way he, and the people he supports, would respond if YOU found yourself in a similar situation. Like I have said, I would like to support Glenn, but what is good for the goose…

    I have met noisy little fellas like you before, who think they understand and know it all. Then they get on the wrong side of our man hating system and guess who they come running to ? It sure as hell is not Pete George.

    Glenn should pull the plug on the funding and let the project die. He does seem to be a target for the have nots and I wonder why he even tries with NZ after all we have done to him.
    The inquiry was never going to come up with anything meaningful. It was staffed by experts on the subject. Well now, all those experts have failed NZ in their area of alleged expertise, so how are they ever going to do better.
    Pull the plug.

    Shunda barunda, because that is what lefties do. Glenn has genuine motivations, but they have other agendas. They do not give a shit about violence. They want to socially engineer society and this is a way to get money and public sympathy. If Glenn were supporting gay rights I wonder if you would take the same position ? Yet the movement Glenn is supporting is a far greater threat to society and traditional family values.

    As an aside; I was having a beer with a few dykes recently. They told me some surprising stuff about domestic violence in lesbian relationships. It is apparently very common.

    Male abuse victims wait till knives are pulled out
    MELISSA WISHART
    Last updated 05:00 10/07/2013

    Men are suffering from domestic abuse, but embarrassment usually stops them coming forward until it is extreme, police say.

    Men often waited until knives were pulled before seeking help, Detective Sergeant Alan McGlade, of the Hamilton police family safety team, said.

    Most reports of abuse against males were either of psychological or extreme physical violence, such as stabbings.

    “If I think about women abusing men, some of the violence is quite serious,” Mr McGlade said.

    “The men think, ‘Oh, she gives me a slap, I’m not going to tell anyone, but she stabs me, well . . .” A 30-year-long study beginning in 1977 by

    Professor David Fergusson , which sampled 1000 people in Christchurch, found levels of victimisation and perpetration of abuse were similar for both men and women.

    http://www.stuff.co.nz/waikato-times/news/8898694/Male-abuse-victims-wait-till-knives-are-pulled-out

    I contacted the Glenn Inquiry a while back and asked about then including Professor David Fergusson. They declined saying they did not agree with his findings. Just about everyone on there was a feminazi.

    Glenn just might have had good intentions but my view is that his inquiry would do more harm than good. He is no fool. He picked Campbell. Another interviewer might have asked him if he ever bonked his PA?

    I’d be interested in hearing how Campbell defends his program last night.

    Man accused of attacking woman.
    Man given soft ‘interview’, explains it’s all a mistake and the woman has psychological problems.
    No effort seems to have been made to get the woman’s point of view.

    Is that the standard we should expect from Campbell, or does it only apply with regards to his mates ?

    Chuck Bird , I have seen, with my own eyes, two occasions where women appeared for threatening their husbands with a knife. One got no conviction, because the consequences of the conviction would out weigh the seriousness of the offence (she was a primary teacher) and the other got no penalty, though I do not recall if she got a conviction or not.

    I grow weary of ignorant opinionated wankers, with no experience in these matters, trying to tell me our system is not bias against males. I have not formed this view from reading the news, but from working in the system and seeing it first hand.

    I fully expect to be attacked for speaking out against this, by the very people I am defending. Talk about doing the impossible for the ungrateful :)

    Yes, very common, one of my wife’s friends has a lesbian sister and she was telling us about several women that beat the living crap out of her.
    I’ve heard it from other lesbians as well and they all say it is very common.

    It’s the lesbian communities dirty little secret, women love to bash each other as well.

    I agree.

    I’ve also seen it with my own eyes and it makes me sick. A bloke I know has been wearing the stigma of “wife beater” for 7 months, when it finally went to court the judge dismissed the case saying it was self defense and the woman had lied and told her children to offer false testimony.
    My wife and I knew this all along because her kids told us!

    She had victim support/women’s refuge running around after her for 4 months and I was told she got a $1200.00 cash payment within a week of it happening.

    It’s a bloody joke.

    I bet she doesn’t have to pay the money back either.

    the enquiry is a worthless waste of time as the only way we can solve the problem is to implement birth control and forced child removal where abuse exists. But, no one has the nads to do this — we don’t need to sterilise people as such, just give beneficiaries more money to have less children.

    Effectively breed the underclass out of existence.

    But still they come.

    What really interested me in his explanation was that “his PA” flew in from overseas to meet him at the team’s dinner. Being his PA, I would have thought he would have ‘hand picked’her and thoroughly interviewed her and checked out her referees and worked closely along side her…… then she SUDDENLY becomes “MAD”. She was either very convincing or Glen picked a ‘lemon’

    It does not appear that it is very difficult for a young good looking female to be convincing to Glenn.

    Domestic violence is unacceptable, make no mistake, however, several things are often overlooked in any debate on this topic: Firstly, women commit acts of domestic violence but this is usually overlooked in the media. Secondly, The DV campaigners seem unable to distinguish between grades of DV and the circumstances – a one time slap because you find that you spouse has had an affair and is leaving is a vastly different thing from an ongoing campaign of beatings and intimidation. Of course all domestic violence is unacceptable, but lumping the trivial and situational in with the serious and long term amounts to intellectual laziness and barrow pushing.

    Owen Glenn set out to do something good for New Zealand. Even if he has done this thing in Hawaii, it doesn’t take away from the huge good he is trying to do. Even if he is guilty, does that mean that he can never redeem himself or have another chance? I’m sure Owen Glenn’s tormentors have succeeded in ensuring that others who might want to do good will now not bother.

    Zebulon, the views you express in your first paragraph are completely contrary to what the so called experts in this inquiry firmly believe. What huge good is it going to achieve. I believe it will do more harm than good.

    If Glenn want to do any good he should employ a proper researcher like Professor David Fergusson.
