SST welcomes ‘hard-line’ on child abuse

New Zealand’s largest victim advocacy organisation is congratulating Social Development Minister Paula Bennett and throwing its support behind the Ministers proposed hard line on child abuse.

Sensible Sentencing Trust Spokesman Garth McVicar said, “If we can save just one child or just one mother it will be worth it.”

“I realise there will be a lot of the so called Human Rights and Privacy activists out there who will be critical but I have seen first-hand the damage these felons cause, and believe me – if we can prevent just ONE more tragedy – ONE more victim, any superficial loss to human rights and privacy will be well worth the price.”

“While I am a huge believer in Human Rights there is no doubt in my mind that the safety and protection of our women and children must take priority.”

“We need to remember that the typical offender has numerous convictions – most from their teenage years – all this legislation will do is protect our most vulnerable from those who continuously make the wrong choices, all this legislation will do is hold the individual accountable for their actions – and I personally have no problem with that.”

“I would suggest those who have promoted this excuse driven, offender friendly liberal lunacy that has allowed New Zealand to become such a violent society need to look in the mirror before they criticise.”
