The NZ Herald this morning has shown the extent of its white knight complex as it gallops to rescue the honour of the Samoan woman in Australia accused of throwing her baby down a drain to kill it.

Apparently, she is

a loving auntie who adores children and appears entirely devoted to her family in Australia and Samoa.


she became increasingly clucky as her pregnancy progressed

and after she threw the baby down the drain she put pictures of herself on social media

posing and looking pretty in a dress but also experiencing post-natal tiredness

(poor tired thing), and a family friend said she

“loves children and is very good with children”

The Herald analysed the woman’s social media posts and concludes

the young woman’s life appears to revolve around her work friends, family and the church.

also telling us that

In a posting in March last year of herself with a young boy she says “happy 4th birthday to my son” and says “cant wait to c u again” and “miss u mate”

(What a wonderful loving mother she really is, except of course that she abandoned her son too…)

Apparently, someone from her church said

she “was trying to keep on top of things” while incarcerated in a Sydney jail

(well that’s heartening then), and also said she was

“very good around children and young people at the church”

and he also said

the father of the child was Samoan and had “perhaps moved away”

(Oh, of course, the Herald wants us to know that a man was really responsible for her violence.)

Have we ever seen such positive comments published about men who offend violently towards children?

No wonder the NZ Herald almost totally ignored the report released last week “The Other Side of Partner Violence: A Counter-Balancing Review of International Studies and New Zealand Reports on Intimate Partner Family Violence” while giving major publicity, as usual, to yet another femicentric report in this case the Glenn recommendations. The Glenn reports amount to a very poor work of vicious misandrist propaganda but horribly lacking in wisdom and academic integrity. Never mind, it’s clearly good enough for the Herald’s white knight crusade on behalf of women against men.


  1. Merely one more tale in the long list of trash, feminist propaganda writers making excuses for their sisters foul behaviour. Just another woman being given “permission” to do as she pleases without any consequences whatsoever. Yep this girlie was an absolute angel and we should all applaud her actions because, you know, that’s what women do.

  2. Agreed Bruce. I didn’t notice that the ‘journalist’ was a female, as assumed from the name.

  3. Lets see if this woman actually ends up getting a prison sentence. I doubt she will sit for very long, if at all. I mean, she is a woman after all.

  4. Just in case there’s any doubt, this is what child abuse looks like when committed by a female:

    And she actually spared the little one’s life. She didn’t throw it down a drain.

    I wonder how the NZ Herald sugar coats her?

  5. Hi rc (#4) – graphic enough and sadly only one of many documented cases of women abusing defenseless children. These episodes are swept under the carpet and ignored simply to advance the case of the fanatical feminist movement whose only objective is to demonize males at any cost. We all know the majority of women are not as depicted in this video; but the story we’re being told is that only men are capable of this sort of abuse and violence. The real sick bit; too many people are believing the narrative; you can pick them – they are the ones wearing white ribbons.

  6. “She an island girl…with a bit of bite in her ? Wtf?

    Well, it was only a boy baby left in the drain?

    Shes got to be – Yet another victim of male oppression.

    We might as well just go ahead and call her the victim.

    Five days she babbled on to social media without a shred of conscience or concern for what she had done.

    Its that blokes fault. !

    She will likely get showered with sympathy and 12 months to stay at home.

    If a man had of dropped a girl baby 2.5m down a drain (left for dead) –

    I don’t think the media would focus on what a great uncle he was or run to his church for sympathetic comments.

  7. Dear rc#4, the nanny is cruel to the toddler, but not quite injurious.

    The nanny does attend to the child, even if nowhere near as well as she should.

    The jumping fairly gently on the girl’s torso probably came fairly close to breaking ribs, but not quite. Very high risk, but not actual death, this time.

    So what? Ten days later, the bruising has probably healed. Maybe 6 months later, the emotional scars are largely gone, depending on what else has happened through that same period of time…..

    But, for about 1000 babies each year in NZ, the caregiver is failing to respond appropriately to the child’s needs, especially in terms of emotional responding. The caregiver may be distracted, bored, depressed, seeking drugs more than caring, psychotic due to abuse and PTSD…..

    The young baby never listened to, fed but not emotionally nourished, will likely be emotionally crippled through most of their life, quite possibly throughout their entire life. What value can be placed on the loss of the ability to form intimate adult relationships? I have heard suggested half the value of a life?

    Such a non-empathic child is hugely more likely to injure other people, rape or even murder. What is the value (for other people) of not creating children in that space?

    Why is a murder sentence life, maybe let out after 25 years, maybe after 12 years, but subject to recall to prison for the entirety of life?

    Because some murderers may recover sufficient sanity and empathy within 25 years and some do not. This is a highly crippled life!!??

    These time periods are so much longer than the 10 days or 6 months talked about, for the recovery of the child assaulted by her nanny….

    The trouble is, that emotional neglect of babies is hugely serious, but impossible at present to diagnose.

    Presently, the only way that we can protect children, is to licence adults who care for children, but we are not actually doing this for parents……

    Even if we pick up an emotionally damaged child at school entry, the damage is done and although help can be given, the child has still suffered crippling emotional injuries. These are the children, then adults who blunder their way through life, making many good decisions and also enough mind bogglingly stupid decisions, to cripple their lives economically. Damaged executive decision making skills. What compensation could be paid to such victims? It wouldn’t help them, no matter what cash we could give.

    The only workable solution, is to protect babies and children from being damaged in the first place.

    I don’t believe that the Glenn Report offers any help in terms of protecting children from emotional neglect.

    By favouring father removal only, it likely would result in significantly increased damage to babies and children.

  8. & Peter William from TV 1 said on breakfast on last Wed that the best place for this boy is to be with mother ( who tried to kill him). It appears there is an institutional bias in media to go soft on females. Does Glen report cover this bit …how to fix those child killer moms? I dont think there a mention of these critical scenarios in the report at all…

  9. To be fair every criminal is a gentle giant or an angel who might have been a bit wild but was turning their life around etc etc – if you ask their family or their lawyer. It’s not a female vs male thing, and remember the papers will also be very wary of accusations of racism if they dare to point out the similarities to a number of other cases like this.

  10. Indoctrination is what we receive from the media and us men are also susceptible to the illusion that our own mothers were perfect mothers.
    Mothers have been, and still are, the main care givers of children, therefore it could be deduced that mothers produce or encourage the very thing feminist hate most in men. The very worst traits in men are derived through their close relationship with their mothers. Mothers may give care to children through an innate desire to nurture but this is nothing short of satisfying their narcissistic nature to produce a replica of themselves. If ‘reason’ is the basis for being human then mothers do an exceedingly bad job in this regard. Doting over a child is not an expression of love in the fullest sense. However, this is the concept we likely think of when we think of mothers love. It takes a father to teach boys the skill in reasoning and fathers require a LOT of TIME with a child to be effective in this regard. Leaving a family court judge (aka, a lawyer) to make final decisions on the well being of children is like getting an excellent actor to produce and direct your next movie. They will know all the jargon and can bullshit their way for most of the time but in the end the production will be a disaster. I have never yet heard great wisdom come from the mouth of either a lawyer or a Judge even though they have completed papers on philosophy and should be able to see a fallacy a mile away, and thinking a mother is the better parent without giving it great scrutiny just a fallacy accepted by media and the courts.

  11. Insightful thesis triassic. This would mean that as greater numbers of fathers are limited from full roles with their children (through separation, protection orders and the state usurping their paternal role), the next generations will become on average more self-entitled, self-focused and show poorer reasoning. Is that happening for recent generations of children?

    Comment by Man X Norton — Tue 2nd December 2014 @ 10:28 pm

  12. Insightful question indeed. Generation X was the first to move away from community base reasoning and Generation Y are well down the track to producing the perfect ME generation. I am on the last leg in my journey through this world and I sure am glad I won’t be around to experience the carnage in the not to distant future.
