• Update: The anti-smacking law lets citizens be agents of state terrorism

The comments button is at the bottom right of this post.

This is an update to my earlier post The anti-smacking law lets citizens be agents of state terrorism.

The NZ Herald is reporting that

The number of minor assaults on children reported to police has jumped by 40 per cent since hitting a child for “correction” became a criminal offence two years ago.

The latest police report on the effects of the law shows reported minor assaults on children went up from an average of 32 a month in the three months before the law changed to 45 a month in the 21 months after the change.

(Note that this refers to reports made to police: you also have to consider the increase in reports made to CFY {Child Youth & Family}. Click here to view a graph of those.)

So, the state’s plan for controlling how parents respond when their children misbehave is working just as I described in my earlier post. When parents know that the they are being watched and that plenty of people are willing to report them to the state authorities those parents modify their parenting methodology in order to avoid trouble. Legally and effectively the state now controls the raising of every child in New Zealand, which is utterly evil.

These citizen-spies are beneath contempt.
