Dog at­tack shock­ing

Vic­to­ria Ginn re­sponds: Your writer kindly states her hope that the thief de­vel­ops ‘‘some sort of la­tent con­science and re­turns the work’’. Un­for­tu­nately no such con­science ex­ists within the per­sons be­hind the theft of my work and it is sus­pected that there may in fact be a form of ma­li­cious plea­sure de­rived from the con­ster­na­tion caused by this theft.

There is more to this story that can be safely said in print but it re­mains a crime not only un­der New Zealand law but a crime against the mana of all those I have pho­tographed. I have made ap­proaches to the iwi el­ders af­fil­i­ated to per­sons con­nected to this theft but to date no ef­fort has been made to es­tab­lish the truth.

If this crime is ig­nored, it leaves the door open to cor­rup­tion of mi­nors and de­base­ment of those higher val­ues we all rely on to hold to­gether a civilised so­ci­ety.
