FROM THE ED­I­TOR

Central Leader - - YOUR PLACE, YOUR PAPER - – Ju­lian

Got any plans on Sun­day af­ter­noon? If you’ve got a cou­ple of hours spare, head along to Aotea Square to March for Moko.

We’ve all heard the hor­rific story about what hap­pened to 3-year-old who Moko Ran­gi­to­heriri, who died of his in­juries from the hands of his so­called care­givers.

Moko was de­fence­less and too young to even com­pre­hend what was hap­pen­ing to him.

You couldn’t even dream this stuff up for a hor­ror film.

The man­slaugh­ter charge handed down to Ta­nia Shailer and David Haerewa is noth­ing more than a sick joke.

This whole case is so cap­ti­vat­ing and yet so un­real.

If you feel that the charge of man­slaugh­ter is too soft and un­de­serv­ing, get out there and let your voice be heard.

It’s too late for lit­tle Moko, but let’s try and make some good come of this.

The march starts at Aotea Square from 1pm.
