Acting Senior Sergeant Donna Rider said the attack was linked to an ongoing dispute but said the behaviour was "disgusting". "I'm horrified at the level of violence from these women. The other aspect to it is that two of them are pregnant and several others claim to be pregnant.
"One of them is eight months pregnant ... [you] can only guess at what kind of parents they'll make."
"Claiming" to be pregnant to avoid court-ordered consequences no doubt. Exploiting their babies even before they are born.
My heart, and maybe yours, goes out to the innocent babies that these women will bring into the world. But it won't be going out to them for long.
A few years down the track they will have grown into replicas of their mothers, in some form or fashion. And it is quite probable that they will all be raised on your money. Time to coin a new phrase. Add to state houses, state wives. Like many state houses they symbolise a seedy side of New Zealand that social policy makers seem unremittingly determined to sponsor.
