Behind every violence or murder there is a protection order

Filed under: General — gh @ 5:40 pm Sun 24th May 2009

When the man in the following article murdered his wife, I as a vaccinated Family Court bonded client, thought there must be a protection order behind this case.
And here it comes.  A few months later a doctored article in the press vaguely refers to a protection order.
Notice how they write ‘ punctuated by verbal and physical abuse on both sides’.  Forced clients of the Family Court know that the violence is only one way. Male against female and when there is no evidence against it they engineer a psychology one.

A couple who had a trouble coping together, ended in one in a grave and the other in prison and a poor child made orphan by the Will of the Family Court.

Meanwhile lawyers, psychologists and judges will tonight sip a Pint at our health.  A pint of blood that is.

Fatal attack had been brewing for years

A surprise guilty plea by the murderer of North Canterbury woman Jo-Anne Thompson has spared the family a lengthy trial, her father says.

In the Rangiora District Court yesterday, Ross Simon Fraser, 43, admitted beating his partner to death in their Waiau home on February 15.

The dispute that led to the 46-year-old woman’s death “had been brewing for years”, a police summary said.

Fraser entered the plea before Judge Colin Doherty at a session where it had been expected a preliminary hearing date would be set.

Don Page yesterday said his daughter’s death had taken its toll on the family. “It won’t leave us, but you move on,” he said.

“Pleading guilty must make it more simple down the line.”

The judge remanded Fraser in custody for sentencing in the High Court in Christchurch on July 9.

Fraser was arrested after nine days on the run in North Canterbury following the murder. He was caught when he returned to the couple’s Parnassus St home on February 24.

Police said Fraser and Thompson had been in a de facto relationship for seven years. They had had an unsettled relationship, punctuated by verbal and physical abuse on both sides.

Thompson took out a protection order against Fraser in 2007, but the couple reconciled.

On February 9 this year, Fraser moved out of their home, and returned on February 15 to get his belongings.

That evening he was out drinking with a group of young people and they were using a punching bag.

Fraser had boxed as a schoolboy.

He then sat drinking at a table and said: “The devil’s unleashing.”

He added: “Don’t tell anyone I said that because people will think it is strange.”

Fraser was then asked to leave, and walked off carrying beer.

Thompson was drinking heavily at home and made her last phone call at 10.36pm.

The couple’s two children, aged 4 and 6, were in bed.

There was an argument when Fraser turned up at the house.

A knife or sharp weapon was used to inflict a series of cuts on Thompson’s right forearm and waist. There were also two cuts on her left leg above the knee and cuts on her left hand. The police described these as defensive wounds.

The attack continued in the bathroom, where Thompson appeared to have been thrown around the room and struck several times.

Her injuries included a broken nose, several skull fractures, a subdural haematoma to the brain, eight fractured ribs and knife wounds.

There was blood in her lower airway.

The cause of death was blunt-force trauma to the head.

Fraser left the house and spent nine days in hiding.

He told police he and Thompson had been in a rage and drinking.

He said the incident was a blur because he had blacked out.

He was ashamed and felt he had let down a lot of people, but he believed the home was his as well and he was too old to be shoved around.

The police summary said: “Pressed for details as to what he had done on the night, he was unable to elaborate, except to say it had been brewing for years

…and as to echo this story a similar event unfolds in a distant planet involving judges, lawyers and psychologist and children best interest specialists.


  1. I don’t believe Protection Orders were meant to provide anything except legal power to the applicant over the respondent.
    Where there is evidence that a breach of a Protection Order has occurred, the person will be arrested and cannot be bailed by the Police for 24 hours.

    Men can be jailed for 24 hours if they don’t obey the woman and she gets pissed. That’s what they’re for.

  2. The hole protection order thing is a load of bullshit.
    I have been around long enough to know that you cant change someone by forcing them into programs Anyone who’s done jail time knows you attend these programs tell them what they want to hear as a means to shorten your sentence or and just to be seen to have carried out a sentence.
    Once all the bull shits over and done with you go back to life as normal none the better… To think change can be forced on someone is a fucking joke and I’m guessing in a lot of cases change is not even necessary as the courts are blind one sided guys are convicted sentenced all based on hear say of some slag that’s pissed off at him

  3. They don’t even have to be pissed off/angry, just mental or wanting to make sure their plans are completed.

  4. Forced treatment programmes not only don’t work but can be counter productive, leaving participants resentful at the society that forced them. The ethics of forcing people into indoctrination programmes are highly problematic. The fact that those programmes are feminist approved does not make the forced indoctrination any more ethical than if they were Taliban approved, Guantanamo Bay approved or Church of Scientology approved.

  5. and in many cases unfaithful too, the state does not care, all the deaths are “collateral” damage to their primary goal of tax collecting for more MPs’ expenses

  6. anyone with any common sense can see that these legal orders make things MUCH worse.
    In the many many cases of women using them as a weapon, an extension of their violence, they are especially bad, but the state does NOT care

  7. That was precisely my experience. My solicitor described to the Femily Caught
    using her protection order as an umbrella while she continues to abuse my client.

    She would phone me early hours of the morning screaming threats of imprisonment while using every foul word she could muster before hanging up. She’d call her lawyer and complain that I had abused her and thus breached her PO. She lied that I was stalking her house.
    She wrote anonymous threatening letters to herself and left them on her car windscreen for the kids to find and blamed me for them. She tried her best to have me arrested for breaching her PO. She refused access to my kids citing her rights under her PO which covered our children too.
    I guess that’s what happens when our government allows an applicant to have power and control over a respondent without any regard to sanity or stability. It might be great for women but it provides barriers to the welfare of our children and is typically used to punish the respondent rather than protect the applicant.

  8. Thanks for the schadenfreuden SickofNZ, i always think my case was terrible, but there are guys with cases 100 times worse.
    The whole system ENCOURAGES terrible retribution and personal justice
    We all know that there disgusting things have happend to us, real injustice, BUT nobody cares, it is never in the press unless it is a joke case

  9. Also Hans, these “Anti violence” courses are proscribed before the man is found guilty or not guilty. It is particularly aggravating when a physically violent wife has made false claims of domestic violence against the man (like in my case)

  10. Yes Martin,
    I couldn’t agree more.
    It’s a terrible shame that is being exposed to the world about NZ

  11. Whilst I agree with the general tenor of this article, I can’t agree with the title.
    As wide spread and bad as feminist DV industry inspired misandric
    protection orders against men are is I don’t think it accounts for ALL violent act and murder.
    However, I will say that having seen NZ upfront over the years I reackon there’s a hell of a lot of violence against men petty and not so petty that flies under the radar….
    But it’s gradually getting harder to abuse men all the time as more and more men are speaking out on this website and others naming the abuse and the abusers.

    It’s particularly comforting to me to see that terms such as misandry which weren’t used regulalry even a couple of years ago in NZ are becoming commonplace.
    When victims find a language to describe thier oppression you can bet that the days of oppression are numbered.
    I aim to start an internationally syndicated expose of NZ feminists
    past and present abuses. (Not that that isn’t already happening here to some extent mind you, as many folks world wide read these threads)
    Many leftist political types in NZ and the United Nations will no doubt
    want to sweep our shameful feminist history under the carpet but that won’t stop the truth from being heard far and wide……

  12. Good on ya mate. I’d like to see all these leftie femmies tried at that same court they tried that yougo guy. That’d be a beautoful day.
