    Why would you be even worried about the consequences

    Footage of a police chase through Hamilton City overnight. Ended with the arrest of a 22 year old man.
    Tyre rims sparked, and a passenger jumped from the vehicle, as a driver led police on a 25-minute chase.

    Details of the Hamilton chase were revealed when Winston Treanor, 22, appeared in Pukekohe District Court for sentencing after previously pleading guilty to a charge of reckless driving, failing to stop for police, driving while disqualified and driving with excess blood alcohol.

    Information from a pre-sentence report and a summary of facts and obtained from the court states that on November 30 Treanor approached a drink driving checkpoint on Boundary Road Hamilton.

    He was signalled to stop, but drove through with police giving chase.

    Winston Treanor led police on a 25 minute car chase through Hamilton.

    The chase carried on through several streets before police deployed road spikes at the roundabout on Heaphy Terrace.

    But Treanor didn't stop, despite his tyres popping, instead increasing his speed to 75kmh in a 50kmh area.

    Again police deployed spikes on Peachgrove Rd, and again Treanor increased his speed, this time to 100kmh, racing through intersections, making no attempt to slow for approaching traffic.

    During the chase Treanor's brother was in the passenger seat of the car, begging him to stop the car.

    The flat tyres caused rubber and sparks to fly from the rims of the vehicle as the car fishtailed and slowed to 30kmh as the engine revved to gain traction.

    Police watched as Treanor's brother jumped from the moving Toyota Altezza before the car hit a raised median island garden on Cambridge Road.

    As officers opened the car door and tried to pull Treanor from the vehicle his tyres caught traction and he sped away. The car continued to fishtail across both lanes, hitting the curb and centre island several times.

    Winston Treanor, 22, was ordered to pay a $111.99 fine and sentenced to 150 hours community work and 12 months intensive supervision when he appeared in the Pukekohe District Court.

    Winston Treanor, 22, was ordered to pay a $111.99 fine and sentenced to 150 hours community work and 12 months intensive supervision when he appeared in the Pukekohe District Court.
    As the defendant approached the roundabout with Galloway Street the vehicle spun out 180 degrees causing the vehicle to face the wrong side of the road.

    Treanor began driving on the wrong side of the road, towards oncoming traffic, still, fishtailing causing his vehicle to collide with a police car and another civilian car.

    But despite the collision Treanor continued driving, fishtailing down the wrong side of the road across both lanes.

    Treanor eventually skid out, causing the vehicle to mount the curb, and get stuck. He was still revving the car, trying to get away, as police pulled him from the vehicle.

    A blood test showed Treanor had 137 milligrams of alcohol per 100 millilitres of blood, over twice the legal limit.

    The police chase lasted 25 minutes.

    Judge Wharepouri said the summary made for "appalling reading".

    "I note the pre-sentence report indicates a lack of remorse, a lack of insight, an inability to show empathy towards your passenger, other road users a nonchalant attitude towards the proceedings in general."

    Wharepouri said Treanor had one previous conviction for drunk driving in August 2018.

    "The fact that these charges should follow so quickly is a matter for some concern."

    Despite this, he said Treanor criminal history was "limited".

    "I also note your relatively young age."

    Wharepouri said the usual sentence would be jail or home detention, however, this would interfere with Treanor's employment.

    Treanor was ordered to pay a $111.99 fine and sentenced to 150 hours community work and 12 months intensive supervision.

    During this time he would be required to undergo drug and alcohol programs.

    "You're not a stranger to alcohol and other illicit substances which you have consumed since 16 years of age."

    I think that the entire judiciary of this once proud nation should be taken into public places and be severely wet lettuce leafed so they understand the degree to which it is not a meaningful punishment. Fuck me dead emoji anyone?

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Judge Wharepouri,

    one of these people you let off without a custodial deterrent might smash into and kill one of your family.
    Will you then use logic instead of empathy when sentencing?

    You are an embarrassment to civilized humanity.
    Take a risk and make a statement next time you sentence one of these assholes. If anyone petitions you to show compassion for the offenders circumstances, remind them of the offenders disregard for the safety of all other road users.

    Be hard, be fair and be respected by both sides of the law.

    Or join a political party.

    When in doubt about a public figure's apparent agenda, we should follow the lefty/commie playbook & consult Alinsky.

    "Wharepouri became New Zealand's first Tongan-born judge to (be) sworn in when he was appointed acting District Court judge in June 2016, the New Zealand Law Society said. Admitted in October 1995, the judge previously worked at Kensington Swan, Russell McVeagh, and Meredith Connell. He became a barrister Sole in 2012."

    So - why is the race relevant / mentioned first in the quoted puff-piece? Because, modern NZ elites are all about race-based balkanization.

    And - coming from Kensington Swan explains a lot about this judgment, to my mind. "The (KS) firm has been involved in most of the PPP projects undertaken in New Zealand, and has clients such as New Zealand Transport Agency and Auckland Transport." And we all know how well those entities care about and serve the interests of the average rate- and tax-payer, NOT. Russell McVeagh; well now, another law firm with a backstory. "Russell McVeagh is facing allegations that senior male lawyers engaged in non-consensual and consensual sexual acts with female intern students. These allegations have resulted in all the six law schools in New Zealand to cut ties with Russell McVeagh, including the University of Otago and Auckland University."

    In case someone thinks I'm being unfair with the implied guilt-by-association - ahem. Have we not all just had a very explicit public lesson that guilt-by-association is the New Norm & Rule? All 200,000+ of us who had a firearms license and / or a semi-auto like Tarrant, are now Tarrantacus, nichtwahr?

    Hey legal professionals; sauce, goose, gander, simple assembly required.

    That's a nice looking brew. I got extra-cheery with bacon-on-a-stick and a Moscow Mule in a copper mug. Salute!
