Cactus Kate holds forth on the shooting of Hailatau Naitoko in another brave attempt to tunnel her way to the moral highground:
The Pinko blogsphere went further. Without even knowing the victim they assumed naturally because he was driving a courier van that he was “hardworking”. If a banker got shot no one would have said he was “hardworking”. How do they know Halatau was hardworking? They turned it into a racial incident, assuming of course the Policeman who shot him was a man and not many of the Maori or Pacific Islanders on the New Zealand Police force. Also forgetting the reason that Halatau was shot in the first instance was that a Maori had gone on a mental rampage putting lives at risk.
