MENZ Issues: news and discussion about New Zealand men, fathers, family law, divorce, courts, protests, gender politics, and male health.

Streets of Shame – John Hudson.

Filed under: General — Julie @ 4:46 pm Tue 24th October 2006

TVNZ 1’s program ‘Sunday’ just keeps on bringing out the truth for New Zealanders.

We spend some nights on the mean and violent streets of south Auckland. Teenagers out of control and it’s a big problem for law enforcement. Why is it happening? What are the police and the local community doing about it?

We all know of the hard and dedicated work that our father’s groups and coalition have done and do and how they have brought the problems of father’s rights and the unacceptable abuse they endure just to merely be in their children’s lives and for their children to have the neccessesities only a father can give.

But now we are seeing the effects of fatherlessness on our youth, the effects of a nation forcing it’s females to fear men and forcing it’s men to be something (I can’t describe as I don’t know how, yet) that they are not mean’t to be. But our children really, really need their dads. Not dads that are sick and powerless because women’s anxieties have over-powered them and we have cut them off at every angle just in case they do something we don’t like for who among us is the first to stand as perfect.

To all the warriors that New Zealand has pulled down, shunned and locked up, my boys and the boys of our nation are relying on you. Oh, and by the way, “Thank-you.”

  2. Hi Jim,

    Did you like the documentary. Isn’t that exactly what half of us see as the solution.

    Paying pyschiatrists and psychologists $300 an hour to talk to these boys is pointless and it is not working. The police say the public groups want to help but that it all comes down to funding.

    When you and I and every other NORMAL person knows they need role-models.

    Some charity groups want PHD’s and other’s want the ex-gang members.

    We have to somehow pull together because at the end of the day it is who the boys will listen to that will make the difference.

    I am loving watching the Maori people show us normal folk that we are not the insane ones.

    By the way I don’t know how to get to your link.

    I am not a fan of solutions, that are wasteful.
    Isn’t the solution.
    Who can make the best recipes.
    That a resource, is not wasted.
    Or small industry created.
    Trapping and humanely, terminating them.

    Then city dwellers, feeding them bread.
    Would know.
    It would become.
    High priced, pet food.

    Like duck shooting seasons.
    Those in charge of policy.
    Make this animal have its own season.
    And own culture, of symbiosis.
    Not conflict.
    With managed, populations.

    Hunting, a necessary solution.


    So to the streets.
    The police go.
    Trying to manage a population.
    But like any local problem.
    The community, must be the solution.
    Culture corrected, culture created.

    The power of the police.
    Like the need for the hunter.
    A symptom, of nature, not balanced.
    Youth rebel, more, and more.
    While the geese.
    Without the predator, excels.

    So the community, and its culture.
    Must be considered first.
    The hunter, the police.
    Results, of flaws.
