Until we have legislation adopted into law to ensure fiduciary accountability and transparency in public affairs we will continue to have human rights breached because the existing crown immunity and lack of any independent oversight invites corruption to flourish.

Your DNA can now be taken by force for no reason:

For those like me, who are wondering how we arrived at the point when one corrupt Constable, such as David Gallagher - reviled throughout the Wairarapa for his corruption, incompetence and bullying - by both his fellow officers and the general public - can obtain an innocent person's DNA by force - without having to obtain a Court order, or any sort of endorsement of his blatant attempt to pervert the course of justice, here's the Hansard record of how this Bill got dragged through parliament in the dead of night without being questioned:
Honourable (sic) Clayton Cosgrove:  "I also note the point we made during the debate on the last bill that here we are in the dead of night, quite literally, rushing this bill through a first reading with no opportunity for members to read this legislation at length, analyse it, and debate it."   
"This bill has been so rushed that not only did it fail the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act vetting . . . but also, if one looks at this bill’s regulatory impact statement - "
 “Treasury’s Regulatory Impact Analysis Team (RIAT) has not had sufficient time to assess whether or not the regulatory impact analysis (RIA) for this proposal is adequate.” [Interruption] My colleague said that Mr Power should be ashamed. Well, as we read on, I suspect he will shrink lower and lower under the desk. I go on to quote from the adequacy statement: “However, we”—that is, Treasury—“have briefly reviewed the [regulatory impact statement] and consider that this is inadequate on the following grounds:”. Before I get to those, I say that I am reliably informed by my colleague Lianne Dalziel, the previous Minister of Commerce, who takes great interest in these regulatory impact statements, that this is a prizewinner. This is an absolute prizewinner for how badly put together legislation can be. It is absolutely the prizewinner for us. Here is what Treasury said about it, and I will go back a bit: “However, we have briefly reviewed the [regulatory impact statement] and consider that this is inadequate on the following grounds: a lack of clarity around the nature of the problems with the current DNA testing regime along with evidence (anecdotal or empirical) to support these;”— 
Hon Lianne Dalziel: Not even anecdotal evidence! 
Hon CLAYTON COSGROVE: We are not into news clippings now, like we were with the bail bill. The Minister does not even have news clippings to substantiate his claims around DNA testing. There is no empirical evidence, no anecdotal evidence. Mr Hide, of course, with his new hairstyle and all, will have scrutinised this legislation, being the regulatory buster. Then Treasury goes on to state that the regulatory impact statement is inadequate on the second ground: “limited analysis of the impacts of the options. The analysis of costs is partial,”. Mr Power said that once put aside, these DNA tests—which I am told cost around $200 a pop—will be disposed of. I ask him whether he or another speaker will tell the House what the cost of this is, because Mr Power campaigned on having no bureaucracy, on cutting bureaucracy, on cutting costs, on cutting red tape, cutting the administration, and on cutting the waste. None of those questions, as Treasury has pointed out, are addressed in this.So there is limited analysis of the impact of the options. The analysis of cost is partial. For example, only aggregate first-year costs are estimated, and capital costs are excluded. There is no estimate—this is a cracker—of risks such as those associated with implementation, or of how these will be mitigated. Not only does the Government not know what the Sentencing (Offender Levy) Amendment Bill will cost, not only does it have no empirical or even anecdotal evidence, or news clippings, or perhaps printed matter on some other piece of paper, but the Government does not know what it costs, it does not know what the risks are, and it does not really know whether it will have any impact at all in respect of implementation.Then we get to the last point, and I quote Treasury that the regulatory impact statement “does not report on the outcome of consultation”—yeah, I bet it does not, because the Government has no evidence, and it did not consult anybody, not even the regulatory buster, Mr Hide, haircut and all—“and how any issues raised have been addressed. Therefore the [regulatory impact statement] does not contain the relevant information or level of analysis required for a proposal of this magnitude.” In other words, this should be a blank piece of paper, because nobody really knows what it means, least of all the Minister. No costs, no evidence, no anecdotal evidence, no nothing, no consultation. If the Minister had gone out and talked to some of the stakeholders, maybe even the agencies, even the police perhaps, he may have got some evidence. 
Hon Darren Hughes: He talked to Mrs Goudie about it. 
Hon CLAYTON COSGROVE: I am reliably informed that the anecdotal evidence, such as it is, has been provided by one Sandra Goudie. Again, it points to the classic member down the back here, Mr Hide, being asleep at the wheel—the man who was going to cut red tape, regulation, everything. He was going to do it. “Send your problems to Mr Hide,” he said on Holmes, “Send them to me: I will fix them, I will cut the cost.” He was too lazy, too inept, and too silly to even read the bill."

Corrupt local police constable David Gallagher assaulted me recently after he was called to two incidents in Carterton, one where a woman called Kathryn McIlraith came out of her property and confronted me aggressively regarding a horse belonging to the Carterton Community Gardens (of which I am the Manager).  McIlraith came out of her house as I was filling the horses water bucket.  She stood outside talking loudly, abusively  and threateningly about me with Tracy Scott, the neighbour who rented the other house near the paddock where the horse was (which was owned by the Dulcie Routhan Trust, which had always allowed the Community Garden horses to graze in the small paddock, much to the anger of George Smith, who monopolises all the grazing he can find and actively spreads lies about me such as those spread by his 'partner' Emily Brown - the wife of Smith's best friend - and others on the Board of Trustees of the South End School - that the police have recently charged me with child abuse, etc - which is a pack of lies).  I ignored the abuse of the two women and continued attending to the horse.

Mcilraith then came out her gate, and across a lane way to where I was, and proceeded to abuse me and assault me as I tried to leave - accusing me of cruelty to animals because of the state of the horse's hooves - which needed trimming, which was the very reason I'd recovered the horse from the property where it had been, Rachel Norman's.  

Constable Kevin Brown will be called to give evidence for the defence, regarding his several visits he made to the property to try and get Dixon and Scott to accept that the paddock and the horses were nothing to do with them and they were to leave me alone.  They were apparently under the delusion the paddock was included in their rental of the house - another witness remembers Constable Brown stopping in Lincoln Rd one day and telling me in front of her how it was taking a while to get it through to them that they had no right to be anywhere near the paddock.  There were also witnesses to another such attack on me over the alleged condition of the same Community Garden horse (Patrick) and another one (Flynn) by a local 'riding instructor' called Kerry Race (trading as ACRYSE riding academy or something), who jumped the fence and came into the paddock and confronted me aggressively, refusing to leave or stop shouting her ignorant and threatening abuse.

Gallagher had stopped me in the street a few days prior to these events, and tried to arrest me for allegedly "stealing" the horse after I'd gone to Norman's to collect it as arranged with Katherine Arcus (who had no right to take it to Norman's without my permission anyway).  Gallagher issued me with trespass notices for Rachel Norman's property and some address in High St apparently occupied by one Lenny Spowart aka Kawana, who police refuse to charge with assaulting me in front of a witness who has repeatedly made complaints about him just like I have, who police refuse to charge.  Police know perfectly well that I've never been and am never likely to go to either address apart from the one occasion recently when I recovered the horse as I told Katherine Arcus at the time, and Constable Gallagher was NOT acting in regard to his DUTY when he issued the notices - there was no likelihood - or history - of me going to either address and he knew it, and his actions were purely malicious and time wasting, an abuse of process, abuse of powers and abuse of police time and equipment - much like the police obsession with my website, and Constable Jackson's "Because I can't be bothered getting off my backside."  The NZ Police are out of control because the IPCA, like other taxpayer funded investigative agencies, is seriously corrupt and/or incompetent.

Spowart is a dangerous, violent local methamphetamine dealer and there is no way I would EVER want to go to his house - I've certainly never been anywhere near it and I avoid Spowart as much as possible, and the only reason I went to Norman's property was to recover my horse, which had been effectively stolen, and according to legal advice I received I had every legal right to go and recover it.  Gallagher had no right issuing the notices because he wasn't acting in accordance with his duty or within his jurisdiction, he was carrying out a nasty personal vendetta, local police are continuing to pervert the course of justice and corruptly persecute me as they've been doing since I arrived in the Wairarapa.

An older lady came to me recently to tell me that Spowart and a friend of his, Merlene Chambers/Shedlock, had defrauded her of $1000 reward being offered for the return of a dog the woman had been looking after since it was rescued from the motorway by her son.  Spowart admitted the theft and spent the money on drugs and alcohol and his own bills - he had a landline and a cell phone, his victim had neither, and told me and the police all about Spowart's repeated violence, trespass, breaking and entering,intentional damage, etc, police continue to refuse to act on the complaints, her son and his partner have witnessed police corruptly refuse to allow witnesses to sign statements, etc.  Spowart has served time for serious violent offences, and is very well known to local police such as Constable Kevin Brown, who made it clear that he would like to charge Spowart but his superiors would not allow it.  Spowart assaulted me in front of a witness who told Constables Cunningham and Wilton that she saw him assault me as he was trespassing on her property - and that he had broken and entered and trespassed a number of times and police always refuse to charge him - it's just sickening really.  More on Spowart and Chambers/Shedlock soon.

The horse was nothing to do with Kathryn McIlraith, or Tracy Scott, or Boydy Dixon, or Kerrie Race, who attacked me in a similar manner in another paddock regarding another community gardens horse, and McIlraith had no right attacking me about it or assaulting me, but she did anyway, like these other alcoholics and drug addled, mentally deficient, violent and aggressive idiots.  It was the second time McIlraith had come out of her house and aggressively confronted me regarding the horse - she rented the house near the paddock, and had no business being anywhere near the paddock or the horse or me - all of which were nothing to do with her.  She told me she had made a number of complaints to the SPCA, which was confirmed.  The local vet had written reports etc, verifying the the horses in my care were being well cared for, and I had removed the horse McIlraith was making a fuss about from Rachel Norman's property because it was clearly  NOT being cared for at Rachel Norman's.  I'd only had it back about two days and had not had a chance to trim the horses hooves - which is what McIlraith was raving on about.  As I tried to leave McIlraith assaulted me.  Also present was "Boydy Dixon" - a real low life if ever there was one, and his 'partner' Tracey Scott - who had previously attacked me in the paddock also, incited by George Smith and Emily Brown - who are involved in the matter of the South End School, and the fact that corrupt and incompetent local police informed the Board of Trustees, of whom Emily Brown is (or was) a Trustee, that they had "recently charged [me] with an offence involving a child" which was another pack of lies from the local police and persons associated with the school, either staff or members of the Board of Trustees.  On arrival, Gallagher began abusing me, saying I was "mental" delusional" etc, so I left, this was about nine in the morning.

Later that afternoon - hours later - during which time Gallagher had driven past me several times as I'd been out on my bicycle and made no attempt to stop and arrest me for any alleged assault complaint from Kathryn McIlraith because he knew perfectly well that no such complaint existed and I hadn't assaulted her or anyone else, and that because of the evidence of Constable Kevin Brown, who attended the earlier assault on me in the paddock by George Smith and Boydy Dixon, no such complaint would be upheld; - a pig escaped from somewhere and ended up on the main road, just inside the 100 kmp area, in heavy traffic.  It was a dangerous situation, being a fairly large male pig, so I began trying to get the pig off the road and confined somewhere.  

Not knowing the after hours number of the local animal ranger (or having credit on my cell phone to ring them) I rang the police and asked the operator to send an officer to help control the traffic and assist in the capture of the pig, help contact the local animal control etc.  

Eventually, after some time, Constable Gallagher arrived.  He pulled up, rolled down the passenger window and asked what was going on.  I explained the situation and asked him to help - he responded by saying "There's nothing I can do, I haven't got any equipment to catch a pig."  He started up the car and turned on his indicator as he began to drive away.  I looked at the two eight or nine year old girls with me and said "Neither have we got the necessary equipment to catch a pig, but if something isn't done there will be a serious accident, and as none of these properties we've herded the pig into has proper fencing, it would be a good idea if you would stay and control the traffic if necessary, and ring the Council Animal Control officer."  Gallagher told me to ring the Council Animal Control officer myself.  I explained that I had no credit on my phone and didn't know the number.  He said "Well there's nothing I can do", I said "You could call the Animal Control officer or ask someone at the station to do it, and you could help us try and at least keep it off the road till they get here, it's only a pig, don't be such a big girl's blouse"  - upon which he leapt out of the car shouting "I've had enough of you Kate Raue, you need to be taught a lesson!"  Suddenly as he exited the vehicle he saw other witnesses to what was happening (by this time I'd managed to enlist the help of several neighbours etc to assist) and Gallagher realised that it wouldn't be wise to arrest me because these witnesses might give evidence in Court that I had done nothing to warrant being arrested for - as usual.  He then stood around on the footpath talking to some other people who were watching us trying to capture the pig, as I continued assisting the other group of people to actually capture it or contain it somewhere secure.  The only equipment we had was a rope and horses halter I had with me. 

Constable Gallagher was still talking to the bystanders and leaning on the left hand end of the gate about ten minutes later when I saw the pig emerge from some vegetation and start coming up the drive toward the road again.  I moved the right hand end of the gate slightly in order to get through and block the pig from getting on the road.   The gate was large and heavy, and not on hinges, and there were large sections of the front fence missing so the pig could easily get on the road again if not stopped.  I briefly looked behind me as I moved the gate back into position across the driveway, so as not to give Constable Gallagher the excuse he was so obviously looking for.  There were two young girls and several adults present.  The gate did not come into contact with Constable Gallagher at all, and nor did I.  Despite this, he immediately grabbed hold of me and shouted "That's assault!"  He is a LIAR.  His family have a long history of perverting the course of justice round here and he has no credibility in the community, he and his family are well known for perverting the course of justice - his brother in law threw a rock through my window and made all sorts of threats in front of witnesses - these witnesses were watching when Gallagher alleges I assaulted him, so will be summoned to Court and cross examined accordingly, as we examine Constable Gallagher's credibility and motivation for lying.

He grabbed hold of me, breaking a section off my gold bracelet as he manhandled me, handcuffing me and shoving me around although (as usual) I was not resisting.  As we began to drive to Masterton he called in on the radio - I've instructed my appointed lawyer, Louise Elder, to obtain the recording of the police radios, etc - saying "I've arrested the subject and am proceeding back to Masterton,"  the response was crystal clear:  "Ah, negative, you've been told to leave her alone."  Gallagher responded with "No, I'm bringing her in - and upgrade that job from this morning to 'assault'."  In other words, it had been originally classified as something other than that obviously.  My guess would be 'trespass', referring to his attempt to have me trespassed from the paddock belonging to the Dulcie Routhan Trust, where our community gardens horses have grazed for years, in accordance with the wishes of Dulcie Routhan and the caretaker employed by the Dulcie Routhan Trust.  Dulcie Routhan would be spinning in her grave if she knew what was going on regarding her Trust and her land - being exploited by George Smith and Emily Brown and a few crooked, selfish, dishonest, people.

Gallagher then began a diatribe, beginning with:  "So, am I going to be on your website Kate?" - obviously referring to the obsession of the Masterton police with my website, as evidenced by their emails to each other.

I ignored him for a while but he persisted with his begging for a spot on the website, so I said "Don't flatter yourself.  You're a narcissist.  Make your own website."  I've resisted gratifying his ego thus far, but the abuse of this Act warrants another look at Gallagher and his corrupt mates in the Wairarapa police.  Also I've discovered/realised that when it comes to justice, the truth is like a lion, you don't have to defend it, set it free and it will defend itself.  Gallagher's 'evidence' won't stand up to scrutiny, any witnesses he tries to present will be rigorously cross examined, as will Gallagher regarding his motivation to make up these charges and pervert the course of justice, why his brother in law was never charged for throwing the rock through my window in front of two police officers and other witnesses, why his wife's cousin was never charged with the theft of almost $500 after lying to police about receiving a phone call from me, the involvement of his mother in law with disgraced ex Constable Stephen Wakefield (thrown out of the force after all the allegations of sexual misconduct against him but still contracted by police for driving duties etc  - still got his snout in the trough in other words),

Gallagher then started raving on about how I needed to be taught a lesson about writing about him and his family on the internet, and how he was going to get rid of all my horses like he "got rid of the one the vet put down the other day" because he was an Animal Welfare Officer with statutory powers etc.  I ignored him, so he said "It did get put down, didn't it?"  I continued to ignore him, he said "I know it did, I spoke to the vet."  Whereupon I said quietly "You're delusional."  "What?" he said, "What did you say?"  "You're delusional" I repeated.  He started raving on about how he was going to get "Mental Health" to lock me up again, etc, and a number of other things I wrote down in my diary as soon as I got home several hours later (will copy them to this post soon), after having been informed that because of Gallagher's pack of lies, I would be forced to give a blood sample for DNA profiling.

It's hard to say who was the most shocked at the outrageous breach of civil liberties, me or the doctor called to take my blood by force, Dr Richard McGrath, a member of the Libertarian Party.  It was the first time he'd had to do it and he agreed that it was a most disturbing breach of civil liberties indeed.

That's how I discovered that a Bill was passed in the NZ parliament, in the dead of night,that allows police constables to take DNA by force, without having to even charge a person with an offence.  One corrupt constable can make up a fairy story and your blood can be taken by force.  Welcome to the new police state.

The Privacy Commission expressed the following view in their submission:
"The complete list of imprisonable offences is very long, and includes many offences of a minor nature, such as littering, lighting bonfires and opening mail without permission.  There is no obvious link between an offence being imprisonable on the one hand and the Police being able to obtain a law enforcement benefit from getting a DNA sample on the other. There would also, inevitably, be considerable costs to the running and smooth operation of the programme, if it is expanded to the extent anticipated by Part 2 of the Bill."
This article in NZ Lawyer makes it perfectly clear that Constable Gallagher accidentally stubbing his toe does NOT constitute the the scenario envisaged by the law makers!

Local police have been deliberately covering up serial child abuse for years - many of the local officers went to school here and have alliances and vendettas going back years, they are out of control and literally getting away with murder.  The so called inquiry into the child abuse cover up has been nothing more than a gravy train for all involved in it - the ringleaders haven't even been interviewed and have been promoted instead of tried and imprisoned.

Note the massive discrepancy - I had my DNA taken at the police station by force - before I was charged - but the man charged with raping a 14 year old girl has to wait for a Court Order to obtain his!  "A DNA compulsion order was made by Judge Mill against Fruean yesterday at the court. The accused was due to have his DNA taken after the hearing." 

Welcome to the New Zealand Police State.  A corrupt and incompetent police force to protect corrupt and incompetent politicians.  Politically motivated bullying, as senior lawyers have previously noted.  On a number of occasions.

It's outrageous that after having all the last lot of corruptly laid charges against me dismissed last year, after the corrupt attempt by the local police to have me declared insane and "delusional" ended in disgrace for them after the Crown was forced to admit it had no evidence to offer on the charges!  Funny how the renewal of this corruption - and the resumption of threats etc via the internet coincides with the successful High Court Appeal - the threats bear a remaarkable similarity to those received from Robert Brook, Julian Tyerman, etc, several months ago - of course police could easily track down the offenders if they wanted to but they don't.  Police round here protect the methamphetamine dealers and child abusers and other criminals and persecute innocent law abiding people, and drive them to commit suicide in droves.

 I now have to put up with Gallagher's lies - NOTHING HAS CHANGED regarding the Wairarapa police - they are as corrupt as ever!

Here's the statement of a witness to one of a series of violent attacks on me in my own home by Constable Gallagher's wife Megan's brother Hayden (and others), who came to my house on 28 May 2009 - accompanied by Constable Gallagher's in-laws - and smashed my bedroom window in front of two of Constable Gallagher's fellow officers, corrupt Constables Harvey Pope and Peter Cunningham - who refused to arrest him or charge him (Gallagher's brother in law):

- Despite the witness saying she'd happily answer further questions, she was never contacted by police, who never contacted me again regarding the matter and refused to respond to all my complaints and inquiries regarding the matter, and simply refused to charge Gallagher's brother for this or any of the other offences he committed.

Constable Harvey Pope was also responsible for ensuring that another of Gallagher's relatives, Tracy Lee, was not charged for the theft of almost $500 from a local woman, after Lee lied to police, telling them she'd received a phone call from Gallagher's brother in law Hayden and I, which was blatantly untrue.

We all went to the police station together, Hayden, me, the victim of the theft, and told Pope that it was a lie, Hayden and I had both been at my house at the time, and neither of us had rung Lee as the phone records will confirm.  Police refused to request Lee's phone records or question her claim that Hayden and I had rung her, just like they refused to contact Vodafone regarding the threatening and abusive messages I received from local prostitute Rachel Betteridge.

Pope refused to take statements from us and corruptly refused to charge Lee.  His refusal to obtain or even request the phone records as corrupt as the refusal of Constable Glenn Taplin to charge local prostitute Rachel Betteridge and her husband with sending me messages saying "You need a bullet" and "Watch your back" - charging me corruptly instead when police knew perfectly well I hadn't sent Betteridge any offensive messages whatsoever, and THAT"S why they refused to request any evidence of the allegations by Betteridge and/or myself from Vodafone!  Police prosecutor Gary Wilson must be charged with perjury for misleading the Court into believing that police made any attempt to obtain any evidence from Vodafone - police refused to act on the statements from the two Justices of the Peace who supported my complaints!

- Not to mention the other evidence:

Here's the evidence of Betteridge's PERJURY - in conspiracy with the corrupt police prosecutor and other local sworn and non sworn local police staff:

Here's the statement of her father, confirming that she is lying:

Here's a copy of some of the phone messages to a local lawyer regarding these matters, with the notes saying "Ken to ring/write Police??" referring to my repeated requests to Mr Ken Daniels to write to the police and IPCA regarding the ongoing corrupt harassment and the fact that police continued to refuse to take action regarding the complaints, including Hayden's threats and violence, documented in the witness statement which I delivered to the police station when I went to make a complaint - on numerous occasions - like the totally unwarranted attack on me by Michael Murphy, which Constable Peter Cunningham corruptly tried to cover up.  Transparency NZ exposes evidence of corruption and encourages others to do the same:

"I am pleased at the dismissal of a number of charges against you. That is as it should have been in my view. It was always apparent from an early stage that for whatever reason you were a "lightning rod" for Police attention in Carterton. 
This was, in my view, most unfair to you and unwarranted Police attention resulted in unnecessary charges being laid. On reflection it would have been far better if the Police had been able to discuss any concerns they had directly with you so that those concerns may have been laid to rest in a much more appropriate way." . . . 
"It is clear that there were many unanswered questions from the Police. We never did get full details from them regarding some of your cases. I have been unable to go back to "the matter of the 2004 letter" simply because of the volume of paperwork and the length of time that it would have taken to have researched that matter. 
I do know however that numerous letters were sent to the Police and discussions held with them to try and get some satisfaction in relation to the allegations that they made against you. As I have said, those enquiries were not always met with success."
Lawyer Michael Appleby and several other lawyers also noted serious miscarriages of justice and corruption, in their submissions, correspondence, etc.

Unfortunately though, the lawyers scurry away like rats from a sinking ship, when the money runs out and the gravy train slows down, leaving thousands and thousands of ordinary New Zealanders to fend for themselves in a legal system that resembles the Mad hatters tea party.

So in the interests of transparency, I published on the internet the correspondence between me and the appointed lawyer, Louise Elder, who was on the Court daily list as representing me, but of course, she was nowhere to be seen.  Lawyer Ian Hard couldn't get out the door quick enough when I arrived at Court, Jock Blathwayt nearly had kittens when he was instructed to speak with me as the Duty Solicitor, he rushed off as fast as he could too, as did the newspaper reporter, leaving me to fend for myself against Constable Gallagher, Sgt Gary Wilson, the boyfriend of the Court registrar Liz Harpleton, and their two lying witnesses.

John Key rates himself - with a slap in the face for the Pike River mine families thrown in for good measure:

John Key has just rated himself a 9 out of ten for his handling of the Pike River mine fiasco - which has been proven to be due to the negligence of HIS OWN MINISTER - Kate Wilkinson, who was "gone by lunchtime" when the inevitable report was released.  He's rated himself an 8 out of ten for his handling of the Dotcom fiasco.  

Unbelievably, after uttering this pathologically narcissistic and incredibly insensitive and thoughtless rubbish - to which the good old sycophantic media bought into hook line and sinker as usual, Key had the gall to say he was looking forward to spending some time with his family - as if he wasn't at the baseball with his family while the Dotcom fiasco raged - this man is a pathological liar and self obsessed narcissist with delusions of grandeur - feel free to add a comment with your own ratings below this post.

Over two years later John Key continues to treat the families and friends of the men inside the mine with utter contempt.  He continues to manipulate the media with grand but hollow announcements and vague proclamations - declaring that he rates himself with a nine out of ten for his handling of the fiasco that caused the deaths of twenty nine men and left grieving wives, mothers, fathers, brothers and sister and children all over the world.  The media fawn over John Key's embarrassing "Gangnam style" dancing - Andrew Little clearly cares more about this rubbish than the Pike River miners' families too - and then there's John Key's gay marriage to some bloke called Bryce.

Listen to his mumbling deceitful bull**** for yourself:

There's more of his whoppers at this link, like this only worse, and more about the Pike River mine at this link.  More shite straight from the horses mouth - top marks to journalist Fran Mold:

High Court Appeal successful - 18 December 2012

Today the High Court heard my appeal against conviction and sentence on a charge of trespass at the Mobil garage in Carterton, Smith Hare and Christison.  The appeal was granted and the conviction quashed by Williams J:

The Crown submissions, which I didn't get to see until after the hearing had finished, was an orchestrated litany of lies, deliberately intended to mislead the Court and pervert the course of justice - at the taxpayer's expense - what a travesty of justice!

For example, the Crown submissions contain the following whoppers (after waffling on for three pages regarding various case precedents narrowing the options on technicalities, etc):

"The matter took almost a year to be heard, due in no small measure to the appellant failing to appear and warrants for her arrest being issued."  - What utter LIES!  The police prosecutor and deputy registrar in Masterton are a de facto couple and they like to have my matters set down for 9:15 instead of 10:00 - they know I don't have a car, rely on public transport and can't get there till ten o'clock, they just like to obtain the warrant because they know that if they can get a certain number of warrants it increases their opportunities to detain me for nothing in the future and inflict more of their sadistic unnecessary taxpayer funded cruelty, and make me look like some kind of criminal or something just because I'm reliant on public transport, so they set the matter down for 9:15 every time and then obtain the warrant purely in order to pervert the course of justice - knowing full well that I'll be there shortly after ten o'clock - except if they've moved the Court across town and not informed anyone!

The delays were caused by police failing to provide disclosure, etc, and the prosecutor's conflict of interest on the ACTUAL date of the first fixture, which was July 4th.  They regularly issue the warrant at 9:45 and I arrive at ten and the matter proceeds, they are just trying to establish a case against me for not turning up to Court and nothing could be further from the truth - it's the POLICE who fail to turn up - regularly!  - If I arrive at Court they either don't show up or try and get an adjournment in the hope that I won't turn up next time - because they only way they can get convictions against me is either have then set down before corrupt Judges, or hold the hearing in my absence!

There is a very long history of police failing to turn up to Court, and of them withdrawing charges, and of my being acquitted.  There is also a long history of local police LYING about me.

Then there's the matter of Judge Barry's "Minute" of 1 February 2012 which makes it quite clear that I was illegally imprisoned in February 2010 after Police and Court staff tried to conspire to manipulate the Court process but were caught out by Judge Behrens, and then corruptly obtained a warrant by lying to the Court, telling the Court that I failed to appear - when the fixture was a figment of their imagination and a purely a result of their own incompetence!  Back to Williams J, and the continuing, deliberate, misleading fiction from the Crown prosecutor, Mr Murray:
"The first fixture was set down for 16 July.  Ms Raue did not appear and the case was adjourned until 12 September 2012.  Again she did not appear and the matter proceeded by way of formal proof."  
What nonsense!  The matter was set down for a formal proof hearing on July 4th 2012 - NOT July 16th!

I arrived at the Court at the appointed time for the formal proof hearing on July 4th, Court was being held in the Frank Cody Lounge in Masterton, having previously been held in a variety of venues including a caravan.

The police prosecutor, Sgt Lawrence, disclosed a conflict of interest to Judge Hobbs, who adjourned the hearing accordingly.  So that was the fault of the police, not me, they should have sorted that out before the matter was called (which was about 11:30), they should have had another prosecutor available, but as usual, they couldn't organise a picnic in the park never mind a proper Court hearing - the manner in which the Masterton District Court operates is an insult to justice and an utter travesty.  Evidence of this point is contained in the Court record, which states (scan will be posted soon):
"04 July 2012 - P A H Hobbs, District Court Judge: RAL [remanded at large] to 16/7/2012 - 9:15 am nominal date to set new fixture date.  Sergeant Lawrence the prosecutor knows Mrs Raue - prosecutor feels uncomfortable in those circumstances.  Mrs Raue regards the prosecutor as a good friend and does not want her prosecuting in those circumstances.  No other prosecutor available.  - Mrs Raue's attendance excused on that date, Mr Hard to advise of new date."
Sgt Warwick Burr seems to be responsible for that particular debacle - he was present in the Court and appeared to be trying to bully Sgt Lawrence to proceed regardless of the conflict of interest and regardless of the fact that he knew perfectly well that the charge was corruptly laid and the information the prosecutor was being told to present to the Court was a litany of lies!  The Court record makes it clear that the delays were NOT caused by me they were caused by the police and the lawyers!

The Masterton Police have a habit of wasting Court time and taxpayers money on this sort of malicious vexatious vendetta, going right back to the charge of Bill Sticking they laid against me - police were forced to apologise to me for dragging the matter out for about two years and then not turning up in Court on the day of the hearing after it became obvious to everyone that they were never going to win the case and were likely to be pinned down in cross examination in a most incriminating manner regarding the fraud at the former Carterton Community Centre and the involvement of the local constable's girlfriend in the serious fraud going on there, and the refusal of the police to investigate those matters and others.

The decision of Williams J notes two points from my submissions, the first being that Mr Hard advised me of the new date and I advised him that I couldn't attend on that date because I was house sitting and managing two rental properties hundreds of miles away at that time.  There was also the fact that the Court moved on 14th August from the Frank Cody Lounge to the Shop Rite Supermarket site (I kid you not) - there was an armed 'stand off' the day they opened there, it is horrible and dangerous.  Nobody advised me - or any of the other defendants by the look of it - that the Court had moved.

The other point Williams J noted was that there was very strong and indisputable evidence which contradicted Constable Dallinger's claim that he served me with a trespass notice on 4th March as he claimed, and I explained to the honourable Williams J why I could prove beyond reasonable doubt on the basis of three different pieces of evidence - one of which was actually POLICE evidence, that Dallinger's claim was not true.

Dallinger corruptly refused to investigate the fraud that has been occuring on a regular basis at the local Mobil station, with certain staff taking customers' EFTPOS cards and then telling them that "the EFTPOS machine is out of order, we'll have to do a 'manual transaction'" - what the customers don't realise is that the staff involved are stealing the card details and using them to defraud their bank accounts.  Be warned, check your receipt AND your bank statement carefully if you do business at the Mobil station in Carterton, and keep checking the statements - the fraudulent transaction from my account occured several weeks after the card details were stolen.

I have a huge amount of other evidence and witnesses regarding this matter, the charge has been corruptly laid.  We will be cross examining Constable Dallinger about his malicious vendetta and how he and Constable Pope kicked in the bedroom door of a fourteen year old girl during another malicious incident of corrupt bullying, when he tried to charge me for theft of a bicycle which wasn't stolen, so he kicked in the door and arrested me for allegedly swearing at him.  I told Williams J that he is a rogue officer (they seem to gravitate toward the Wairarapa where they know corruption and incompetence are par for the course).

Flynn and his friends at the South Wairarapa Veterinary Services:

Update on Flynn (the horse with nine lives):   Flynn has had his operation and is doing very well now, thanks to the kind, compassionate, professional team at the South Wairarapa Veterinary Services.  I am delighted, and very grateful indeed, as are all the local kids (and grown up kids) who love Flynn and his fellow FOCKCer horses, Brutus, Patrick, etc.  They've been mates for many years

Friends of Caring Kiwi Communities (the FOCKCers) own three horses in Carterton, Flynn is the eldest.  He developed a tumour on his sheath a while ago, so of course I contacted the vet, who examined him.  Since arriving in the Wairarapa over eleven years ago I've used the services of South Wairarapa Veterinary Services, and always been impressed by their professionalism.  Peter Morriss examined Flynn.  Peter upholds the impeccably high standards set by the legendary Rodger Gillett, who recently retired.  The vets confirmed that although the growth was unsightly, it wasn't causing him any immediate harm, any apparent pain, or any significant discomfort, and that he was in otherwise tip top condition and had a very good quality of life for the time being.  We were all aware that the growth was growing and that action had to be taken in the fairly near future but there was no need to euthanase the horse.  Peter invited his colleague who also specialises in equine surgery to give a second opinion, and after some deliberation it was decided that it was feasible to attempt to remove the tumour.  Furthermore, the SWVS kindly offered to perform the operation free of charge, in the interests of educating junior veterinarians and gaining experience.

On 22nd November 2012 Jane, Peter and Emily successfully removed the tumour in a challenging two hour operation, with others observing for educational purposes.  

Jane carefully examined him, listening to his heart for a long time, measuring him to estimate his weight in order to calculate the correct dose of the sedative.

It was touch and go a few times, there was a lot of blood, Flynn decided he had to lie down half way through the operation, after all the sedative we had to give him, which wasn't part of the plan (the vets had hoped to perform the operation with him standing up, sedated, using local anaesthetic.  The team moved on to Plan B and just got on with the job.  Blood spurted from all the blood vessels as Peter and Jane worked fast to stitch them all up, with Emily handing them instruments flat out and providing great support.  It was amazing to watch the speed at which they worked, it seemed to take forever.

Flynn stopped breathing a few times, Jane told me to lift up his head, and I give him a jolly good speaking to, telling him to pull up his socks and do his bit and BREATHE.  Finally he'd take a breath again each time, and finally, after what seemed like hours (the whole thing took a couple of hours) the stitching was all finished, and Jane administered the antidote for the sedative as they worked flat out to clean Flynn up and wash and put away all the equipment.  In a little while Flynn woke up, got to his feet, neatly avoiding the big mass of clotted blood on the ground, and started eating the grass as if nothing had happened.  I felt like all my Christmases had come at once.
Flynn and his two fellow Community Garden horses provide a great service to the community, providing riding for the disabled, the bullied, the abused kids, the ones with funny lumps growing out of them, and big scars (some you can see and some you can't), and all the other kids round here who think hanging out with horses is a better idea than going off and committing suicide or something.

Spending time with horses builds confidence, empathy, respect, relationship skills, communication skills, it's a great thing, and Flynn, Brutus and Patrick benefit the kids round here more than they benefit me.  We'd like to establish a fund to enable the SWVS to do other operations for animals in the community like this.  The SWVS do other work they're not paid for too, such as when people bring them animals who have been hit by a car and the owner can't be found, people who can't afford to put their pets down but don't want them to suffer, and other things to help people and animals in the community.

Please support the work of the South Wairarapa Veterinary Services, they do a lot of work in the community for which they don't receive payment, and the fact that they offered to do this operation for Flynn free of charge says a great deal about their commitment to the community, their high ethical and professional standards, and the character and calibre of the vets who work for their practise.  They have looked after Flynn and his mates for over twelve years, and they've always provided absolutely top quality professional services to us, and to everyone we know.

It's good for kids to learn that just because you're old and you've got a lump doesn't mean you should automatically be thrown on the scrap heap.  Flynn's always loved taking little kids for rides, he's made it his mission in life and his specialty.  I told him years ago that if he looked after the kids, I'd always look after him.  And he always has, and it's just wonderful that Peter and Jane offered to operate on him so he can carry on his good work, showing kids how to have fun, make friends, learn to trust, build confidence, etc.

People who care about animal welfare should consider making a donation to the SWVS to enable them to set up a little fund to perform other procedures on animals in need, for the benefit of the vulnerable in the community (like a lot of the people who enjoy spending time with Flynn), for educational purposes, humane purposes, etc.  This is a really good way to provide direct assistance to animals in need, and recognise all the work that these veterinarians do in our community that people don't always know about.

Jane and Peter removed Flynn's stitches yesterday, he's looking as healthy (and handsome) as ever

Donations (fan mail, etc,) can be sent to South Wairarapa Veterinary Services, 8 High Street South, Carterton  5713.

SPCA, Police etc, bully community suicide prevention initiative:

The FOCKCers received a lot of complaints recently about Flynn, and our other horses, who have been moved out of their paddocks by corrupt police, etc, many - if not most - of these complaints are false and malicious, this is the first of several posts about recent events.

Constable David Gallagher thought it would be a good idea to serve me with some trespass notices recently.  The first one was for Rachel Norman's property in Chester Road.  Norman works at the Event Centre and was a witness for the prosecution against me in a recent unsuccessful Court case.  I have had nothing to do with Rachel Norman ever apart from her making a false statement to police and the Court about me allegedly going to the library one day, which has been discredited, along with a number of similar allegations involving Carterton District Council staff and others with a grudge against me for various reasons, in this case stemming from the illegal closure of the Carterton Community Centre, and Community Gardens, etc, services which I am endeavouring to maintain and reinstate in our community.  David Gallagher knows perfectly well that he had no business serving the notice as there was no likelihood WHATSOEVER that I would go to Norman's and that the only reason I had was to recover MY horse, which had been taken there against my wishes.

This matter began one weekend recently when I was at home with a friend when we saw a horse I recognised as mine, a white Arab gelding (with a brand that identifies him beyond doubt) called Patrick (also known as Paddy) go past my house on the footpath headed north accompanied by Katherine Arcus, who I had loaned the horse to (along with her sisters) on certain conditions, such as that they kept his feet trimmed and shod if necessary, that they didn't allow him to become overweight as he was prone to laminitis, that they not use a saddle on him (which was a condition I accepted from the previous owner when I took ownership of him), and that they keep me informed of how he is and not move him from their property without permission, and return him to me when they no longer wanted him or if I wanted him back sooner.

When I looked at the horse I saw that his feet hadn't been trimmed for a very long time, he was grossly overweight, unfit, hot and sweating - under a saddle - and being ridden in the hottest part of the day, for a considerable distance obviously (as was later confirmed).  I asked Katherine where she was taking him and she said to Rachel Norman's.  I wasn't impressed.  The Arcus girls know perfectly well that I would NEVER agree to my horse going to Rachel Norman's property, and I was disappointed that they would deceive me by taking the horse there without telling me, and to neglect and abuse the horse by riding him that distance in his condition during the hottest part of the day.

I wasn't impressed and made that fairly clear, but not in an aggressive or hostile manner, but I allowed her to continue but said that I would quite likely be going to Rachel Norman's to get the horse in the next few days and bring him into town to do his hooves and have him handy for children to ride during the school holidays - as Katherine Arcus indicated that she and her sisters no longer wanted him, which was the first I'd heard of this.  I had paddocks available in town but wasn't in position to take possession of the horse right at that moment and just wanted him hosed down and put in a shady paddock with a drink of water as soon as possible.  Katherine heard me and agreed that I was going to go and get the horse in the next few days, and there is no question about that.

A few days later I went to Rachel Norman's and found Patrick not looking very happy so removed him and brought him into town, where his diet is being controlled so he doesn't founder (get laminitis), etc.  I left a note, out of courtesy, informing Rachel Norman where he'd gone, and called into the Event Centre the next morning as I was passing to make sure she had seen the note.

Imagine my surprise when I then received a rude and abusive series of messages from one of the Arcus girls, Juliet, and a number of extremely nasty threats, which will be posted here shortly, and then several days later I was stopped in the street by Constable Gallagher who raved on hysterically about the fact that I'd taken "Rachel Norman's horse".  When he'd finished I informed him that it wasn't Rachel Norman's horse at all it is MY horse, which was being neglected and ill treated by a woman who committed perjury against me in Court - what a cheek, I thought.  He put half the papers he was holding back in his car and issued me with a trespass notice for Norman's property - despite me assuring him that he was simply wasting taxpayer's time and money again because I'd never had anything to do with Norman and certainly didn't intend to, and had only gone there to recover MY horse - as agreed with Katherine Arcus as a condition of him going to the property!  I will be issuing these Arcus girls with Witness Summonses in order to examine Constable Gallagher's credibility in Court when his charges against me are heard - IF they are - the local police and the Crown seem to have now established a very long list of failed, corruptly laid, prosecutions against me - based on no evidence, evidence proven to be perjurous such as that of local prostitute Rachel Betteridge and her partner, etc.  Constable Gallagher screamed at me as I walked away "You need to be taught a lesson!" - it's HIM who needs to be taught a lesson.

Around this time I also received several messages on my phone and an email from Val Ball of the local SPCA, the head of the local branch, Val Ball, was instrumental in the removal of a very well cared for horse a few years ago which I was involved with, which was when I first became aware that the SPCA is involved (knowingly or unknowingly) in what amounts to organised thefts of animals.  Other people also received visits, phone calls and general harassment from these malicious parties complaining about the welfare of my horses, which included Emily Brown and various others, including a Kerry Race, of "Acryse Riding School", who threatened and assaulted me, demanding to know my name and what treatment the horse was receiving - this woman should be locked up, she is aggressive and violent and shouldn't be allowed anywhere near children.  She has no respect for the law, common courtesy, etc, and is a complete nutter as well as an ignorant bully.

Local Police have been moving the horses from the paddocks they were in in the last few days - Dulcie Routhan would be spinning in her grave if she knew about this outrageous corruption going on over her estate!  Dulcie Routhan cared about children and animals - not the feathering the nests of the likes of greedy lying bullies like George Smith and Emily Brown.

Val Ball left messages on my phone alleging that Flynn was "in very poor condition and needs to be euthanased immediately", etc, including false allegations about what the local vets had said.  I emailed her and asked that all future communications be in writing, asked her to define "poor condition", refuting the allegations that he was in poor condition AND that the vet had said any such thing!  The vets had all commented on what GOOD condition he was in (apart from the tumour, which the vets had told Val wasn't bothering the horse unduly.

So here's the recent email I received, in red, and my response:

Dear Val Ball, 

Regarding your email of 12 November (in red):
1.  "Kate.  I am on my third concern today with regard to your horse in Belvadier road."  Please provide all information held by SPCA regarding me and my animals according to the Privacy Act, in particular, the total number of complaints you received about this matter.  Sorry to be a nuisance, but the police are now involved and this has got beyond a joke.
2.   "I understand that you have been talking with Peter Morriss about the horse. The horse is in good physical condition but cannot be left like it is.  Sadly it needs to be euthanized by humane methods. Peter has said that the horse is not in pain but has great discomfort and it sounds like it is getting worse."  Peter didn't say any such thing, and I think that he and the staff at the clinic are getting very tired of all this nonsense, it's harassment.
3.   "I went and observed it yesterday and while it was walking around and feeding it was unable to sit down and appeared to be limping  or holding its leg up as if to relieve the discomfort."  This is blatantly untrue, as witnessed by many people and considerable evidence.  Horses do not "sit down", and these claims are simply not true.

4.  The SPCA will be prepared to assist in costs if this will help you. 
I have also received a concern from my head office so people are getting really concerned.  Val Ball  

Many, if not most of the complaints you received were malicious, people with genuine concerns contacted me on the number on the sign on the gate and were soon reassured.  Please provide contact details of your head office (email).  Your offer of assistance with costs is gratefully accepted.  (I notice SPCA had a collection the other day outside the supermarket.)  Flynn has had his operation and is doing very well now.  How much are you able to contribute to the costs?  Considering the benefit that Flynn and his two fellow Community Garden horses provide to the community, providing riding for the disabled, the bullied, the abused kids, the ones with funny lumps growing out of them, and big scars on their heads, etc, and all the other kids round here who think hanging out with horses is a better idea than going off and committing suicide or something.

Spending time with horses builds confidence, empathy, respect, relationship skills, communication skills, it's a great thing, and Flynn, Brutus and Patrick benefit the kids round here more than they benefit me, it's the kids you'll be helping.  We'd like to establish a fund to enable the SWVS to do other operations in the future that benefit the community (and the SPCA probably), Flynn's operation benefits the work of the SPCA, it really does.  The whole affair has been educational for a lot of people, it's good for kids to learn that just because you're old and you've got a lump doesn't mean you should automatically be thrown on the scrap heap.

If you could let me know as soon as possible it would be good for obvious reasons, I look forward to your response asap.  Also if you are able to assist with helping us to find grazing locally by advertising through your contacts and by writing to the Carterton District Council and formally asking them to allow us to graze some of the land they own, it's the least they can do after destroying our garden, paying their staff to 'perk' our sheds, etc, and making the same sort of malicious complaints about all sorts of things to anyone who will listen.  

You and I share a common intolerance of animal abuse and it would be good to work together in a more positive way in the future, we need support urgently, many of the complaints about Flynn were malicious, this sort of malicious spreading of misformation has cost me my employment, and it's time the SPCA wrote to the Carterton District Council about these matters - there is also the matter of Robert Miller refusing to tell police about the phone calls he received from Lenny Spowart - claiming he was "Mr White" after Spowart released the other horse onto the road for the second or third time.  Police refuse to charge him saying there's no evidence, there is.  It's the phone records, the call WILL be recorded and Robert Miller is obliged under the Privacy Act and the OIA to provide me with this information, all of it, and he is morally and ethicall and legally obliged to give it to police.  Robert Miller admitted he remembered it perfectly well in front of a witness when he came to speak to me recently after Spowart released the horse the last time! That Council sent us a bill for impounding fees is a further slap in the face!  They know perfectly well Spowart should be in Court for it!  Especially after the Council ROBBED us of $400 election deposits they fraudulently refused to return!  Not to mention all the money in the ten Community Centre bank accounts the Council members on the committee ripped off - thousands and thousands!

Then there's the matter of the horse I recently recovered from the property of an employee of the Carterton District Council, I was subject to an attack from a malicious (and drunken) member of the public just this morning regarding the state of its hooves, and had been concerned myself about the fact that it had been ridden from Waihakeke to Clareville in the hottest part of the day with hooves like that and as fat as it had been allowed to get.  I wonder what the SPCA would make of that?  We would be grateful for your assistance, and look forward to your response, thank you for your kind offer to assist with costs, and hoping you will assist with the letter to the Council as well.  

Katherine Raue

There was no response to this email, so I escalated the inquiries and contacted SPCA Head Offices having found their contact details myself, and today I received the following response to that:
"Hi Katherine,

Thank you for contacting RNZSPCA about this matter. Could you please call me or alternatively send me a contact number so I can call you to discuss this further.


Lloyd Warren, Regional Manager (Central) Inspectorate and Centre Support"

I advised Mr Warren that because of the blatant lies told by Val Ball I preferred all further communication be in writing, whereupon I received a request for all emails from Val Ball - the onus is on VAL BALL to provide this information according to the Privacy Act NOT me!  In due course I then received this arrogant and dismissive response, which totally ignores the main part of my email:
Hi Katherine,

When an SPCA takes receipt of an animal welfare concern they are duty bound to investigate the matter. SPCA make every effort to obtain the concerned callers name and contact number however for a variety of reasons a large percentage of callers remain anonymous. SPCA endeavour to investigate any animal welfare concern received.

Once an animal welfare complaint has been received it is common for the officer in charge (Animal Welfare Inspector) to contact relevant organisations (Council, Police, veterinary clinics, etc) to attempt to gather additional information which may assist the Inspector in the investigation of the complaint. The Inspector would in most cases visit a property or land to inspect an animal.

Please note that in accordance with the Animal Welfare Act 1999 an SPCA Animal Welfare Inspector (section 124(2)) has the power to enter, without warrant, any land for the purposes of inspecting any animal/s (section 127(1)).

I have spoken with Val Ball and the vet who operated on your horse and I am satisfied that the horse is in satisfactory condition, however please be advised that an SPCA Inspector may from time to time visit the horse.


Lloyd Warren
Which horse?  That's why I've requested ALL INFORMATION from her - because she obviously lied about the horse the vet operated on, and at least one of the other ones apparently.  The operation obviously wasn't "free" for the vets to perform was it - it used drugs for one thing and they cost money, it took two hours or so of senior vet's time, and after all the trouble Val Ball has caused and the statements made by Val Ball you need to indeed honour Val Ball's statement that SPCA would assist with "costs" because as I say, it all cost money and SPCA can make a reasonable donation to the vets to cover the "costs" of the medication, the "costs" to the clinic of having two senior vets occupied on other business all that time, travel costs, etc - I have discussed with the vet setting up a fund (controlled by the vets, not me) to assist them in offering similar treatment to animals if it benefits the community, or even just to cover the costs of the community work the vets do all the time that people don't hear about - euthansing animals hit by traffic that have been brought in by someone and the owner is never identified, etc.  The SPCA's hysterical fabrication of a situation that didn't exist because the horse was never in pain or suffering, or anything other than mild discomfort, caused a considerable amount of EXTRA expense for the SWVS - having to examine the horse repeatedly and answer the phone repeatedly, write reports, travel all over the place to examine the horse unnecessarily etc, and it's only fair that Val Ball contribute to these unnecessary costs.  I have shown her evidence previously that I am a MAF Animal Welfare Manager and I know as much if not considerably more than she does - or her colleague Lesley Gibson or whatever her name is.

Val Ball lied about the horse Flynn when she said "Peter has said that the horse" "has great discomfort and it sounds like it is getting worse." and "it was unable to sit down and appeared to be limping  or holding its leg up as if to relieve the discomfort."  She repeatedly insisted it needed euthanasing immediately and made other such untrue allegations about what the vet said in the messages she left on my phone.  It certainly appears she's involved in lying to the police about this horse and others and I would appreciate you providing me with ALL INFORMATION YOUR ORGANISATION HOLDS ABOUT ME IMMEDIATELY - ALL NOTES REGARDING PHONE MESSAGES, ALL INFORMATION - EVERYTHING ON YOUR FILES PLEASE.

She said she'd assist with costs and you should do so immediately and cease trying to make excuses for this appalling behaviour and trying to make excuses to avoid the commitment to assist with costs - why should the vets bear all the cost of it - and me email also referred to SPCA assisting us with requests for assistance from the local Council, etc - why are you ignoring the substance of my emails and just trying to fob me off with these pathetic excuses?

We've had bills for impounding our horse from the Council after a deluded criminal released one of them onto the main road repeatedly - this individual, Lenny Spowart, rang the Council animal control officer,Robert Miller, and told him that his name was Mr White (a deluded lie) and the horse wasn't allowed in the paddock (of course it was).- Miller refused to tell police about the phone call and provide them with information regarding the date and time of the call so they can get on with establishing it came from Spowart's phone and get on with charging him for putting the horse on the road.
- Regarding your final comment about SPCA visiting my horse in the future - you are warned that what you are doing is illegal - it is HARASSMENT - it is ABUSE OF STATUTORY POWERS and it it unnecessary, I have had these horses for over twenty years, and other horses, there has never been any animal welfare issues and there are literally hundreds of witnesses - credible, well qualified and experienced witness to attest to that.  Furthermore, I am a MAF Animal Welfare Manager, and was previously employed in that capacity at MAF's Silverstream Isolation Unit and at the National Centre for Disease Investigation - who sold three horses to the meat works in Masterton, which were infected with an unwanted organism which has the potential to cause international trade disruption" according to MAF (against my advice of course).  Further "visits" will be viewed as criminal harassment and will not be tolerated - if you or Val Ball or any other SPCA "officer" has concerns about animals you need to PHOTOGRAPH or preferably make a VIDEO RECORDING of it and you know perfectly well that wasn't done because Val Ball was LYING about the horse "not being able to sit down" and "limping" etc - not to mention what she alleged the vet had said - as was the case regarding Mrs H's horse in Dalefield Rd!  A large number of qualified and experienced race horse trainers, vets, huntsmen, etc, all know and will bear witness to the fact that there have NEVER been any animal welfare issues regarding my animals and that Val Ball and her cohorts have a history of making false allegations and failing to produce any EVIDENCE of their lies - where are the photos of *Mrs X's horse???  (*Name withheld to protect privacy)

Your response is arrogant in the extreme and will be posted on the internet for all to see where their donations are going.  We would be glad if you would "assist with costs" asap because the FOCKCers support the community work that the South Wairarapa Vet's do to educate and enrich the lives of the local children and animals, and your assistance will enable them to do other operations like this in future, that will benefit the whole community.  I have lost grazing to several paddocks thanks to Val Ball's lies and would appreciate it if you and her and the lot of you KEEP WELL AWAY from my horses - they do NOT require your ill informed and outright dishonest and malicious harassment.

I was recently acquitted of charges arising from lies told to and by a certain corrupt local Police officer by the name of Constable David Gallagher, who tried to have me up for the theft of our own horse - Patrick, otherwise known as Paddy - which I rescued/repossessed from the property of Carterton District Council employee Rachel Norman - because of the state of the poor horse!  Several members of the public blamed me for the state of the horse's hooves - including Kathryn McIlraith, Tracy Scott, Barry Dixon, Kerrie Race and other other aggressive, ignorant and uninformed bullies.  This is the reason I went and took our horse from Rachel Norman's property - because the persons leasing the horse knew full well that we would never have approved it going to Norman's property in the first place, and because I was shocked that Norman's friend and the person I leased the horse to, Kathryn Arcus could ride this poor horse for miles and miles in the blazing sun in the hottest part of the day, while the horse was grossly overweight and his feet looked like THIS - which the SPCA aren't in the slightest interested in apparently - shame on Kathryn Arcus and her sisters for allowing poor Patrick's feet to get like this, and shame on Constable David Gallagher for persecuting and harassing me and proceeding with his lies and corrupt prosecutions of me while he raves on about how he's an official animal welfare officer as he serves me with trespass notices for places I've never been and for spiteful, cruel Rachel Normal - Gallagher knew that the only time I've ever gone near Norman's place was to recover this horse - OUR community garden horse - which she should have been prosecuted for under the Animal Welfare Act!  Gallagher should have been sacked years ago and so should Val Ball and Leslie Gibbons or whatever her name is of the local SPCA!

Elaine Crozier/Winchester - unqualified social worker - WARNING:

On the 3rd of June 2011 I was illegally incarcerated in Te Whare Ahuru after being transferred from Rangipapa in an attempt to corruptly move me from the jurisdiction of the Capital Coast Health Board to the Hutt Valley District Health Board and corruptly invalidate my application to the Court for a Judicial Inquiry into my corrupt and illegal detention in a mental health facility in response to revelations regarding corruption, bullying and incompetence which is rife in the Wairarapa, involving police and other 'community leaders'.  Friends had started a petition and were actively trying to have me freed by taking whatever steps they could to end the gross injustice and corruption.

Friends had contacted a social service organisation receiving government funding called "Atareira", which was linked with another organisation called "Oasis", and asked for assistance, specifically asking that a staff member go to Te Whare Ahuru and assist me.

So in due course, on 3rd June 2011, a woman was ushered in by staff at Te Whare Ahuru who introduced her to me as "Elaine Winchester" - I took one look at her and said "You're Elaine Crozier, and I know you from the Carterton Community Centre."  The woman denied this repeatedly, saying she was NOT Elaine Crozier and had never seen me before.  She was LYING - deliberately!  She knew perfectly well that I had been Secretary and Finance Officer of the committee who had very briefly employed her, and that I had queried her appointment and the process of appointing her and the fact that she had provided no curriculum vitae or references.  Elaine Crozier/Winchester's employment at the Carterton Community Centre was short lived because she colluded with the corrupt and incompetent group of District Councillors and disgraced former MP Beyer the Liar who had been involved for years in ripping off the funding of the Centre and it's dozen or so bank accounts, all funded by charities, our taxes, etc.  The victims of these rip offs were the poor, the disadvantaged, which makes the frauds even more despicable.

Five months later, on the 11th or 12th November 2011, I realised exactly who she was after she posted extremely insensitive and offensive material on her facebook page following the death of Ceridwen Allom, aged 15.  Elaine Crozier/Winchester first posted a music video with the words "posted for youthful Ceridwen, suicided this week aged 15 of Masterton special daughter of close friends of my son Hugh we have lights guiding us"

I was shocked to discover that the woman I had challenged was indeed the same person who had repeatedly denied that she was Elaine Crozier.  I wrote to the organisation who had sent her to Te Whare Ahuru and made a formal complaint regarding her deliberately dishonest denial of the facts regarding her identity and a request for all information held by the organisation about myself - I was in for an even bigger shock.  It's important that incompetent and corrupt people such as Elaine Winchester/Crozier and prevented from working with vulnerable people because this is why we have such high rates of suicide in this country, because incompetent and corrupt liars like this are being moved from one job to the next without ever being held accountable for a long string of unprofessional, dishonest, corrupt, cruel treatment heaped on one person after another - it's like moving the parish priest to another parish after they rape a few kids - it doesn't solve the problem it makes it WORSE!

Shortly after posting the incredibly insensitive comments on facebook about the suicide - well before half of Ceridwen Allom's friends would have been informed of her death and certainly well before the Coroner had decided the cause of death - Crozier/Winchester then posted the following facebook entry: "Y'all gon get your minds blown the fuck outta this world", "This is by far the best thing I've ever seen on the net and y'all know I've posted some crazy ass shit, right?" - making a mockery of the reference to the deceased in the opinion of many people and showing gross insensitivity and lack of empathy and respect.

In due course I received Elaine Crozier/Wakefield's "notes" - made regarding her visit to Te Whare Ahuru during which she lied to my face about her identity - this is what she wrote about me:

Elaine "managed IHC adult service" as she puts it, for a VERY short time after it was revealed that she had lied regarding her Curriculum Vitae and references.  I was the Acting Manager prior to her appointment, and I was Secretary and Finance Officer of the committee of the Carterton Community Centre, which interviewed her and which was her employer.  

Repeated requests to Atareira for any evidence of any qualifications or relevant experience for the role of "social worker" or "family support worker" have been refused or ignored.

There IS no "Town Community Council" in Carterton and there is NO evidence of "her psychosis" because no such psychosis existed!  Elaine Crozier/Winchester is a deliberate liar who saw an opportunity to slander me out of revenge for exposing her lies about her CV!

New Zealanders deserve better than this - and it's high time this evil lying witch got her snout out of the trough of taxpayer funded "social services" - this post will be updated shortly!
