Sean Plunket: The right to silence has destroyed children’s right to life

 

By Sean Plunket, Magic Afternoons host.

I have lost a lot of sleep over the story I am about to share with you.

I’ve wondered if it would be better not to tell you about it and if any good will come from you knowing the heartbreaking details I am about to reveal.

In the end I decided that knowing what I know and sharing it is better than keeping it hidden and I hope that some good will come from all of us confronting the disturbing circumstances I am about to outline.

As part of Magic’s campaign around the right to silence in cases of child abuse I have received a tonne of correspondence from people who care deeply about kiwi kids and want to do everything they can to protect those who are at risk from abuse or neglect.

I have received a tonne of correspondence from people who care deeply about kiwi kids.

On Saturday I was contacted by some people who have grave concerns for the life of an 11 year old boy living in a small town somewhere in the North Island.

This wee guy is severely disabled, he has cerebral palsy so is confined to a wheelchair and has no control over his bowels, and he has to be fed through a thing called a mic key button to get enough nutrients to keep him alive. Because of his condition he cannot talk and because his development has been stunted he cannot even communicate non verbally. He is totally dependent on others to feed, clean and provide for him in every way.

He lives with his dad who has legal custody of him, and with his step mum who has had her kids uplifted from Oranga Tamariki. His dad was in a bike crash while riding with the Mongrel Mob of which he is a member. They live in a gang pad with none of the specialist equipment needed to provide for a severely disabled 11 year old.

Luckily due to his disability this 11 year old gets to go to school each day where he is part of a special needs class.

That’s good because they can feed him, bathe him three times a week and get the nits out of his hair. They also change his nappies before putting him on the taxpayer funded bus back to the gang pad each night.

Two years ago his teachers took him to hospital because he was so severely constipated he was going to die. He hadn’t got the drugs he needed to alleviate his life threatening condition at home and spent weeks in hospital recovering, I understand no one from his family visited him.

He has some other problems as well. He suffers extreme scoliosis in his spine which now needs surgery and because his family has neglected to put his feet in splints or take him to medical appointments one of his feet is twisted and also needs surgery to correct.

His teachers provide conjunctivitis treatment, pamol and anti-constipation drugs because he doesn’t get them at home. He’s almost 11 but weighs just 25kgs, better I guess, than the 13 kgs he weighed when he was hospitalized with four kilos of faeces inside him.

Orangatamariki have been involved with this boy for years but because his Mongrel Mob dad threatens anyone who suggests taking him away no wider family members are prepared to intervene and Oranga Tamariki were in the process of closing their file on him.

If ever the cops are needed to step in and help Oranga Tamariki uplift this child it is now. To say they cannot do anything is not good enough. given the cops have admitted they are too scared to intervene, in anything to do with gangs, nothing will happen. This poor child is only a cash cow for his drop beat dad.

The good folk who contacted me with this most appalling of stories are fearful of losing their jobs at the state agencies they work for or being targeted for reprisal attacks from the Dads gang associates.

But they believe without intervention this poor kid will die and from what I have been told I cannot disagree.

I thank those people for contacting me and hope that by publicizing this story I have not put your jobs or lives at risk.

They believe without intervention this poor kid will die.

I have shared this story with the Children’s Commissioner Andrew Becroft who has contacted those people and this morning launched a high priority investigation into all the circumstances around the care of this most vulnerable young New Zealander.

I have withheld some of the details of this case to protect my sources and prevent this poor kid becoming a media sensation.

I will keep you posted as to what happens and I beg you all when you see neglect or abuse of children in this lovely country of ours to speak up and make a difference.

  1. Not as bad as a child, but it has happened before. In 2019 a whanau member in Tokoroa died from wanton neglect. They kept him for the benefit money.

    In the days before Bruce Rangitutia died, the man with cerebral palsy cried out to his carers from his bed “me hungry, me hungry”.

    Unable to move from extensive unexplained injuries and so desperate for water he drank his own urine, the 55-year-old’s malnourished and skeletal body weighing just 42kg eventually gave up. He died on December 5, 2015.

    Terry was paid a supported living benefit of $265.64 a week to look after Rangitutia.

    • Child or not Rangitutia was vulnerable.
      Sounds like the doctor might have GOHA
      And the lawyers appointment might have been too little too late.
      But at least he was with whanau – they know best, don’t they Tariana.

      • It was appalling for the very vulnerable man. nevermind his age. That’s why I remembered the story from having read it last year when the lack of humanity made me sick. That is cruel in anyone’s book. Call themselves family. Not even close.

  2. Yeah mate shit happens…. but none of this justifies your legally untenable claim that New Zealanders’ right to remain silent should be revoked.

  3. Quickly, somebody call ambulance chaser, she can helicopter in for a photo op with the neglected and abused meal ticket, sprinkle her unicorn fairy dust and smash this case of child poverdy.

  4. So they want to undermine the legal right to silence based on the actions of a single Mongrel mob thug.

    This is a disgusting and vulgar appeal to emotion in order to generate support for an evil authoritarian regime to remove basic rights.

    The author is a sack of shit.

  5. The biggest issue is how our police have failed yet again to uphold the rule of law against the criminal gangs.

    • The gangs can kill people, and then be looked after in prison. The State, on the other hand, is not allowed to liquidate the gangs, despite knowing the identities of the gang leaders.

      (I wouldn’t want to give the State any more power than it has now, but I feel the police are focussing on the “low-hanging fruit.”)

  6. If a vehicle registered to me is caught exceeding the speed limit by a speed camera, I am legally responsible for the penalty unless I declare who was driving the vehicle at the time.
    Why does the same not apply to the care of children?
    Are you the child’s parent and legal guardian? Then you are responsible for its care. If the child is harmed in your care you will be punished. Maybe parents will be a little more discerning who they leave their children with while they swan off to the pub.
    I am not willing to allow my freedom to be eroded because a bunch of ferals keep killing their kids, but neither am I remotely satisfied that no one is called to account for perpetrating these horrors on the vulnerable.
    If someone is in line for a reasonable custodial sentence anyway they might be a bit keener to offer up the thug that actually committed the crime, but we need to start with someone being held accountable.
