This histoire of horrible hitting comes to you from Wanagnui, New Zealand. Bodene Benjamin Tekaha Hati (try saying that five times fast!) has narrowly escaped jail after smacking around his girlfriend and his 6 year old son. I think his name suits him better if I spell it a little differently…
The day started off just like any other spring day in New Zealand. The sun was shining and the birds were singing. Hatey’s partner wanted to partake of the lovely sunshine so she opened the curtains. That’s when Hateful Hatey kicked her in the back because the sunlight was worsening his hangover (probably). After this little hiccup, Mrs. Hati went into the kitchen to make some breakfast. Hatey didn’t want any breakfast (probably because he felt nauseous from a hangover) so he grabbed their 6 year old son by the hair and threw him onto a bed that was in the loungeroom.
Mrs. Hatey yelled at him to stop but Hatey didn’t want to stop, so he pushed her into a wall and then punched her twice in the left side of the face. Then he kicked and punched her in the stomach. Hatey then followed his girlfriend into the bathroom where he told her “you’re lucky that’s all you got”. Then he grabbed her by the throat, leaving her gasping for breath. She managed to free herself from Hatey’s clutches, but he grabbed her in another bedroom and kicked her 3 or 4 times in the left thigh and twice in the stomach. Unperturbed by Hatey’s campaign of c***ery, Mrs. Hatey went back into the kitchen to continue making breakfast. Okay, well if you’re that hungry. She soon heard a hullaballoo coming from the loungeroom and found Hatey and their son in there. Hatey screamed like a little bitch for his partner and his son to go outside. As the frightened family made their way outside, Hatey then grabbed their son back, threw him against the wall and slapped him. Because the boy just hadn’t been traumatised enough by seeing his mum being bashed and by being thrown around by his sperm donor!
From reading the graphic description of the girlfriend’s beating, you may be able to guess why he was targeting her stomach area. Any takers? The girlfriend thought she may have been pregnant. The motive behind the beating was that Hatey had lost his job and his partner hadn’t paid the bills. Well, Hatey, maybe if you weren’t such a hateful douchebag, you’d still have a job because people would actually want to work with you? I can’t imagine why you lost your job. As for the bills, what’s stopping you from paying them yourself? Or did you piss the bill money up against the wall? Shoot it into your arms perhaps? It’s not hard to infer that if he’s just lost his job and she thinks she might be pregnant, that he might’ve been trying to get rid of another possible drain on finances.
The judge was surprised by Hatey’s pre-sentencing report that recommended home detention, where imprisonment would’ve been more appropriate. Nah, you think?! Home detention was what they wanted, so home detention is what he got. he was charged with intent to injure and assault on a child. 6 months. He copped another 4 months for a drink driving charge. What the fuck is it with Kiwi courts and “home detention”? Are they too afraid to give out real sentences? At least he’ll be serving it at his parents place in Wainuiomata, and hopefully his partner may have the good sense not to follow him. She’s not completely blameless in all of this. In 2009, Hatey was charged with assault – on her! Why didn’t you leave then and spare yourself and the kids grief?
I’m going on looks here, but Hatey’s partner seems rather plain. And on the bigger side. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. Strewth, I’m not exactly an oil painting either and I’m carrying more kg’s than what’s good for me. But this may contribute to her sticking around Hatey despite the anger and grog problems. She may not have the self-esteem to think that she deserves better. She may think that she can “fix” him. If you’re out there, please read this. You cannot fix him. He can only fix himself and only if he chooses to. You can do better. Stay in Wanagnui and raise your kids away from the grog and the anger. Your children deserve a peaceful home and you can provide it all without him.
