I was shocked to read of 200 rape cases a month currently in New Zealand.
Per chance, chatting to a detective involved in such matters a couple of days earlier, he alluded to this and I wrongly dismissed it as hyperbole.
As it transpires the situation has been the case for the past three years, putting huge pressure on the police and causing delays in prosecutions.
Rapists are invariably social misfit vermin of conspicuously weak character. We need tougher penalties with meaningful minimum say eight years prison terms.
It’s a taxpayer burden most folk would happily accept.
