Reti helps assault victim

April 26th, 2014 at 4:00 pm by David Farrar

The Herald reports:

Two teenage boys have been assaulted in Whangarei in separate, violent, evening attacks, with one stopped by a GP and political aspirant while the other involved an attacker intoxicated on legal highs who also assaulted police.

Whangarei GP wants the community to unite to stop violence in the city after he helped stop a violent assault on a boy in the CBD while filming a video on Wednesday night about today’s Anzac Day commemorations. ….

Dr Reti, who is the National Party candidate for Whangarei in September’s general election, said he was disappointed by the level of violence he witnessed just after 9pm on Wednesday that involved two young men “kicking the heck out of” a boy on the ground in Rathbone St.

He captured part of the assault on video when he left his camera running after filming a video for his Facebook page at the Field of Remembrance in Laurie Hall Park. 

While driving out of Laurie Hall Lane on to Bank St, he noticed a car stopped in the middle of the road and heard a commotion before realising what was going on – a boy aged 15 or 16 was curled up in the foetal position while two young men took turns kicking him. Dr Reti got out of his car and approached the attackers who stopped the assault.

“The young man was bruised and dazed but conscious and I applied the required medical cares until the police arrived,” he said.

Kicking someone lying on the ground is particularly cowardly and brutal. Hopefully the Police catch the assailants.

    Good on Reti for stepping in there!

    IIRC, he is not the first National person to do so either.
    I seem to remember Paula Bennett doing the same a couple of years ago (separating a couple of girls fighting I think).

    Used to be very rare.

    Since Progs, who hold traditional morality in contempt have become politically and socially ascendant, its par for the course.

    Yes, there can be no doubt that the rate of violent assaults shows a positive correlation with more liberal policies. Pillock.

    These will be the same “Progs” who oppose war and the death and suffering of millions, justified because they are different ?

    I see you have come back from exile Red. Was twittering like a school girl not doing it for you ?

    Feral scum who know nothing better than using the boot when a mans down. Trouble is when they are caught they are given pathetically low sentences by judges so far out of touch with reality , its scary.
    Toughen up…feral assault minimum 5 years in the slammer.

    Mikenmild, the useful idiot.

    You lying piece of shit.

    Kicking someone lying on the ground has been the norm in assaults since at least my teen years approx 50 years ago.

    I suspect it goes back thousands of years before that.

    In all that time it has been frowned upon by those not inclined to do it because they were worried the “victim” might get up and beat the shit out of them – including of course gutless pc scum of the bedwetter type.

    I’m guessing Red is referring to the modern progressive dichotomy between protecting oppressed minorities and dealing with crime.

    You have to look past the fact that someone is kicking the shit out of an apparently defenseless person on the ground and determine which one holds the real power and which one is a victim of society. If you lock up the wrong victim then everyone will be tut-tutting about the prison population demographics.

    If the guy on the ground is white or wealthy, and the one with the boot on is not, then it is social justice in action.

    :D

    These cowards always run when someone comes along. I’ve seen that first hand. You don’t even feel heroic for stepping in.

    They run like they scared of their shadows.

    Five years is a long time when you doing nothing and surrounded by bigger bullies.

    In case you don’t know, crims still hate jail.
