The Tribune (NZ) - - COMMENT -

We are read­ing each day about the in­cred­i­ble num­ber of un­solved bur­glar­ies all over New Zealand, ev­ery day of the week.

We are re­minded of our poor neigh­bour who was beaten in a home in­va­sion, not once but twice. She was 86, a brave, in­cred­i­ble woman who has had to sell her home.

The in­truder has not be caught, no one has had to be ac­count­able for this crime. The po­lice have not come back and had a catch up with the neigh­bour’s and ad­vised us about safety in our som­mu­nity. Noth­ing, just a great big noth­ing.

What has com­mu­ni­tysafety come to in New Zealand? Cer­tainly noth­ing to be proud of. Heather and Jerry Tan­guay
