NZ: A Fundamentalist Christian Dictatorship

By my calculations the NZ justice system consumes 3,248,500 prisoner nights per year! At a cost of $90,936 per prisoner per year and $900 million / year for corrections. And yet 16% are put there for the “crime” of altering their minds. Freedom of Thought Now! The Rastafari should be able to burn incense just like a catholic priest burns his incense. Anything less is a fundamental christian dictatorship using “smell” as evidence when you can’t take a photo of an aroma https://www.legalise.org.nz/synod/

Our Latest OIA Request

Dear Government,

hope you can help – hope I have the right people please;
re: OIA case id 429890 I’m trying to build a better picture of discrimination in criminal sentencing/discharges in NZ.
Some data points I will need to be able to extract are:
  • how many people are in jail each night (include home detention)
  • a way to group victimless crimes (conservation act 1987, benefit fraud, drugs, drink driving etc)
  •  and compare this with how many people walk free also due to the use of discharge without conviction, judicial cancellation of the case (eg prosecution evidence too weak and case is dropped), use of plea bargain (reduction of charge from cannabis supply to cannabis procure for example, due to lack of evidence, due to lack of witness, victim or complainant).
On 23 May I filed an official information act request (OIA case id 429890 re: study of the use of Section 106 discharge without conviction in Justice department, Courts, Sentencing in regards “cultural psychopathy / effective fundamentalist christian dictatorship” by police and judiciary). I’ve since heard back from the Ombudsmen – and now have a Case ID for the request.
If the filtering I’ve just asked for above is too difficult, I’m happy to perform the data cleansing myself – for example with a record of every judgement in past 10 years:
  • Date of judgement
  • Type of judgement: eg sentence, discharge, dismissal etc (the resolution date)
  • CRI / CRN (securely scrambled* if needed)
  • Charge (eg “Cannabis supply” = dismissed, “Cannabis procure” = sentenced
  • Type of sentence: prison / home detention / community detention
  • Length of sentence in nights
  • Amount of fine etc

I assume with 10 years of data, 10,000 prisoners and another 10,000 on EM curfew, the data should use about 200,000 – 1,000,000 rows of database or similar assuming an average conviction rate of 75% and between 1 and 5 charges per judgement.

Discretion Turned Bad
When there is no witness, no victim and no complainant, the justice system (police, courts, corrections) uses it’s discretion unfairly based on culture, race, sex, religion and many other factors that are impossible to see or even control by the people involved themselves due to the untracked subconscious psychological factors (in the minds of the judges and the way they interact with the court, and the minds and speeches the prosecutors, adn other unknown players present) because they are hidden in privacy by the Privacy Act 1993. By my calculations the NZ justice system consumes 3,248,500 prisoner nights per year! At a cost of $90,936 per prisoner per year and $900 million / year for corrections. And yet 16% are put there for the “crime” of altering their minds. Freedom of Thought? The Rastafari should be able to burn incense just like a catholic priest burns his incense. Anything less is a fundamental christian dictatorship using “smell” as evidence when you can’t take a photo of an aroma https://www.legalise.org.nz/synod/
I would like to discover who the following 2 sets of pairs (two people on the day) of people are:
a) the most colluded judge and prosecutor pair and; (highest percent discharge)
b) the most refuted judge and prosecutor pair; (lowest percent discharge)
c) without revealing their identity;
The data you provide will not allow me to personally identify anybody, but it will not preclude the possibility in the future should a Royal Commission of Enquiry or similar request leave from the privacy act to do so.
Privacy Act Compliance via Secure Hash
My OIA seeks to rectify this untenable situation by securely and privately extracting the data we need to fix the system using a secure hash of the:
  • Judges name (day of discharge/charges dismissed
  • Prosecutors name/ID
  • Defence lawyers name/ID (if any)
  • McKenzie Friends name/ID (if any) see: http://newzealandjudges.blogspot.co.nz/2013/06/mckenzie-friend-has-lawyers-running.html
  • The Accused name/ID, CRN, CRI, etc
* it is possible to securely scramble and make public private data by the use of a random “salt” added to the data + a mathematically irreversable secure hash function or “digest”, see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cryptographic_hash_function

Figures need to also show EM curfews like home detention and community detention as well as prison time.

Thanks so much in advance!
 
Looking forward to seeing the data and helping solve our systemic racism, and our cultural psychopathy toward the rastafari. It appears NZ has become a fundamentalist christian dictatorship: it is time we had freedom of thought (cannabis), as well as freedom of speech.
Some points to consider:
  • 16% in prison for drugs: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/opinion/news/article.cfm?c_id=466&objectid=11353236
  • Use of home detention is masking the prohibition problem in NZ: https://www.legalise.org.nz/home-detention/
  • 1st place in world for incarceration rates if you count home D
  • The Synod Report  extrapolation shows we consume 3,248,500 prisoner nights per year! https://www.legalise.org.nz/synod/
  • Therefore we must be number 1 in the world for incarceration: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_incarceration_rate
  • Black/Rasta Lives Matter  – We live in a radical christian dictatorship that is currently putting hundreds or maybe thousands of innocent people behind bars (16% of prison population may have no victim, complainant, or witness, and the Rotorua conviction rate is 87%)
  • The discrimination must stop! https://www.facebook.com/events/204027403331644/
