Having spoken to some of the protesters who have been on the recent crusade against the family court I am surprised to hear about the nature of the behaviour of some of the New Zealand Family Court Staff. They have come out of their homes using unseemly language, behaving in an aggressive and threatening manner toward protesters. They have used abusive gestures, and on two occasions I have heard of so far, resorted to physical violence, assaulting protesters. One can only ask was there a point at which these persons felt violence was justified, or were they simply unable to control their anger.


  1. I don’t blame them!
    You guys have gone too far!

  2. So if I think someone in my family court case is over the top I can defend myself and assault them, because they have gone to far.

  3. Bobby Bob,
    I disagree.
    I think the protesters are responding in an amazingly restrained, and by the way TOTALLY LEGAL way.
    Take a deep breath bud.

  4. bobby bob must be a woman nazi.
    so if the assaulted person sues for physical abuse will he get a fair trial?

  9. as BOB is the acronym for “battery operated boyfriend” I feel the posting above is yet another example of a disgruntled female posting under a nom-de-plume vis-a-vis “Charles” & “Clinton” and others 🙂

  10. I agree completely with the protester above. I was at one protest completely passive with a sign. To my complete amazement with my own eyes I saw some loose headed woman rush just like a crazed dog would at the person with the loud hailer. She almost knocked him down in an attempt to get her hands on the bullhorn she didn’t succeed so she resorted to picking up a rock. I guess she thought she was going to “stone someone”. Her words were “this is my family home”. I thought to myself see how avidly she try’s to protect her family home but/when she is willing to be a party to the powers that be who are devilish in there attitude and action when it comes to destroying the homes and families of others that are down because of a relationship break-up. I just felt very sorry for her. My impression was that the subject/ or person to which the protest is directed at. It is them that set the tone not the protesters. The protesters they/we were there because of circumstances that were beyond our/their control we seek true justice and want to be heard and have a good time at the same time. Those guilty perpetrator who are paid or live off and share the booty of in justice will squirm with fear those that aren’t guilty fear not.
