Protest, not threaten

May 29th, 2014 at 6:34 am by David Farrar

Stuff reports:

Serial threat-maker has gone to jail for four months maintaining that he will not eat or drink until he is released.

The Oxford farmer is likely to serve two months’ jail time of that sentence for his repeated letters threatening to kill Prime Minister John Key over a long standing dispute with successive governments.

It’s somewhat sad when people allow a grievance to become an obsession.

All Means All politely thanked the judge when he was sentenced to four months’ imprisonment.

He had himself ruled out of home or community detention as a punishment by refusing to make his property available.

He said he would not do community work, and he had paid nothing of the $20,000 fine imposed last time he did this and went to trial.

That meant imprisonment was the only option left, in spite of All Means All’s hunger strike threat.

Well that will at lest reduce the food bill during his imprisonment.

    I would hope that the same stance is taken with those who refuse to pay their rates.

    A waste of space who deserves no compassion. Maintain your diet until the very end, Mr Means.

    So, mark Stafford feary, over a station that DOC took back/over. I got that much from the Daily Mail online.

    The stuff article is woefully woeful.

    holy has a good point,
    if someone has assets and has gone through the whole judicial process and is obviously just messing with the system – then just take the assets.

    He probably needs some help rather than imprisonment, but seems likely to be a difficult customer. People who develop these deep-seated fixations are very difficult to reach.

    holysheet – Collections probably has it in the too hard basket but will get to it in due course. It there are partnerships, trusts etc available it complicates the process beyond which Collections is probably used to. If it involves litigation the Crown could be out of pocket on legal costs, since the Crown could only get scale 2B costs (ie about 50%).

    It beggars belief that when John Key has a very high popularity rating, that some people hate his guts – even for things he is not personally responsible for.

    Who else has a bizarre obsession with John Key and wants to “destroy” him? Now let me think… I remember, it is the Official Visionary For Life of the Internet-Mana Party, Kim Dotcom.

    They’re both nutbars.

    “Nutcase.”

    He tried due process

    He tried a letter writing campaign

    He tried making hollow threats

    I dare say he want to be charged and tell his story in the hope that the jury would see the light but alas the average juror is just too brainwashed to believe that they are being conned by a crooked state legal machine.

    I fully understand why the Murrah building was bombed.

    He may have lost this round but I reckon he’ll make a stunning if slightly emaciated comeback. People like him, kicked from pillar to post for god knows how long, never forgive or forget. Right now he’ll be planning his next move. I wonder if the people who have played major parts in this fellow’s troubles feel safe walking to and from the Court House and their gentleman’s clubs?

    The daft thing was that his original grievance was right. The crown settled with a clause that included “all reasonable costs”. Costs weren’t reasonable and that’s the basis of his on going campaign which has now cost him his liberty, his name and (I understand ) his family. It’s a complete waste.
    Quite why he thinks doing criminal acts and clogging up the court is fixing his perceived issue is beyond me.

    Why do you think the IRA, PLO, LTTE and all the other freedom fighting groups came into being GPT1?

    He was judged to be in the right but still the State screwed him over. What does one do when all else fails? Curl up and die or take up the gun?

    I guess he could turn the other cheek but some people simply can’t forgive or forget.

    The IRA always ,even back in 1916 , had a constitutional alternative to violence. That’s how our democracy operates.They were and are terrorists.

    One of the first men they murdered was a policeman on sentry duty.Just walked up to him and shot him out of hand.They also shot a number of civilians who refused to build barricades or give up their property for the barricades.

    Cold blooded murderers.

    Just like the NCA aye kowtow? Remember the Sharpeville massacre, that’s where your constitutional alternative gets you, shot down in a hail of police bullets.

    Strange thread.

    Almost everyday on here there is someone saying how they would like to do something horrible to one MP or another and suddenly now some of those same people are feigning absolute disgust.

    An amazing example of hypocrisy.
