Last week, the New Zealand Herald reported a jury was to decide whether an idiot sending an email to the Prime Minister saying, “I will blow your head off”, constituted a death threat.
If evidence can be produced that one could live without one’s head, an argument could be made for the defence. Otherwise, the defendant is responsible for a monumental waste of taxpayer money running such a case. And let’s not have any jokes about Jacinda’s head not being missed and such-like. They will be deleted.
People who sustain our democracy by their participation cop plenty of criticism but I have no time for the craven keyboard cowards who when, sadly all too rarely, are nabbed, then cringe and cower about not really meaning it and such-like.
Lock this rubbish up with the rest of our losers to enjoy one another’s actual violence. That’s a taxpayer expense we will relish.
