I thought during the Australia Day long weekend that there’d be something going on involving kids and alcohol. Aussies tend to get drunk and crazy on Aus day. But no, it’s been quiet. Shame the same can’t be said for our cousins across the ditch! Here is a tale of two Kiwis who were caught boozing it up while driving.
An Auckland grandbreeder has been charged with allowing his 7 year old grandson to drive, as well as a few drink driving charges and child neglect charges. Tehere Maihi Maaka (49) was charged with dangerous driving, driving with excess breath alcohol and allowing his grandson to drive on a public road. Even though the boy was behind the wheel of the car, Maaka was still charged with reckless driving and drink-driving because it was presumed that he had driven the car at some stage in the day. They were pulled over by police around lunchtime (!!!) just 500m from Maaka’s house and when they breathalysed him, they found him to be nearly three times the legal NZ limit. At lunchtime!!! So if he was drunk, what was he doing driving and why was he looking after the boy while drunk??? Well, Mr. Maaka’s son has denied that his Daddy dearest has done anything wrong! He denies that the boy was driving and that his dad is hurting and going through a bad time at the moment. So, did the cops just make up lies about who they saw driving? I don’t think so. This might explain why the boy was allowed to be supervised by a drunk, because his DNA donor doesn’t give a shit! Maaka has been remanded on bail without plea and will re-appear in court next month.
Our second sloshed story involves an egg-warmer by the name of Georgina Sheila Walters (30). She was busted with an open can of bourbon and coke beside the driver’s seat with her 9 and 11 year old daughters in the car with her. Hmmm I wonder if that drink belonged to the kiddies? Probably not, because bourbon is one of the most vile things I’ve ever drunk. It’s not even nice with coke. The cops clocked her at twice the legal limit and she told them that she’d drunk a bottle of wine and two beers before driving home. Is she insane? That would have me feeling very dizzy, let alone being able to drive. And where did she get the booze from? Did she go to the pub and down them in front of her daughters? Or did she get them from the bottlo and guzzle them out of a paper bag like the classy bitch she is? She managed to dodge the slammer and was sentenced to 100 hours of community service and disqualified from driving indefinitely. This is her THIRD drink-driving offence, that should mean jail time because she obviously didn’t learn the first two times! Sadly, her daughters remain in her “care” and family members have expressed concern for their safety and wellbeing as long as they remain with her because Ms. Walters has had ongoing problems with the grog. I hope that should anything happen, that the family will be willing to care for the girls and give them the safety and stability they deserve.
Both matters have been reported to Child, Youth and Family services.
I got into an argument about welfare sanctioning with some lefty socialist greenies the other day. I suggested that Australia/New Zealand should adopt the US model of food stamps and EBT cards to prevent benefits from being wasted on booze and drugs. They told me that people should be allowed to “self-medicate” and then called me a racist because I said that people should work and be resourceful in times of adversity, like our ancestors did. I basically told them to go chain themselves to a coal loader and get squished between the gears, because this kind of thinking is dangerous and produces the welfare entitled drug and alcohol addicts that think the world should lift them up and wipe their arses for them. Drug and alcohol problems don’t just hurt the addict, they hurt those around them. No more enabling. No more excuses.
