Silly hysteria

A Wellington community constable is making taggers wear a pink best labelled “tagger” while they cover up their tags.

Green City Councillor Iona Pannett has compared the practice to Nazi Germany forcing homosexuals to wear pink triangles in concentration camps,

Iona should know better the difference between someone who chooses to break the law (a tagger) and someone who has no choice about their sexual orientation.

She also should know the difference between half an hour of embarrassment for a tagger (which presumably is in lieu of getting a criminal record) and genocide. Comparing the two is repugnant and offensive.
