A common misconception is that alcohol is a cause of family violence. Alcohol is a disinhibitor and when someone who is violent consumes it - their abusive nature can be exacerbated. “I was drunk” is NOT an excuse, and should not be accepted as one.

There is no excuse for being violent drunk or sober. We have a thing called the frontal lobe where we can control our reptilia instincts.I wonder what was going on in the background here? Was he asking to separate or was she trying to make him do something that he refused?🤔 www.news.com.au/national/victoria/crime/homicide-squad-investigates-after-four-people-found-dead-...

The definitiion of family violence provided by the Ministry of Social Development’s Family and Community Services is so wide it'd probably apply to every household in New Zealand. I realise this might be good for their funding but police might have other stuff to do besides relationship counseling.

I'm aghast that courts allow being inebriated as any sort of mitigating factor as if being drunk was caught like a cold instead of being self inflicted. Exceptions might be made for any genuine sufferer of fetal alcohol syndrome but that's about it.

Includes infidelity

They already have that bad character in them alcohol just brings it out.

Agree. Drunk is no excuse for violence. Don't blame the booze, blame yourselves.

I stopped drinking 5yrs ago to be a healthier older 68yrs man, I feel great.

With an increase in Kiwi travel within Aotearoa, the roads are keeping busy and the road trips are taking longer. So we must remember to keep our roads safe and practice healthy road habits. Speeding is a huge contributor to traffic accidents in NZ, and more children die and are injured in traffic crashes than any other form of accident. For more information about road safety please visit our website: https://pmgt.org.nz/safer-communities/#Road-safety.

Blessings to all of those who have lost their lives, due to the misguided actions of others.

Do NOT leave your kids or pets unattended in a hot car - there is no excuse! On a 30°C day, the temperature inside a vehicle can reach 39°C in less than 5 minutes; in 30 minutes, it will be 49°C. This occurs even if the vehicle is parked in the shade with the windows down. As the temperature and humidity rise, airflow will decrease. Anyone who sees a dog or child suffering in a hot car is urged to call the Police , SPCA or AA immediately.

If I see a dog trapped in a hot car, I wouldn't ring the police... they take too long. Smash the window and get the dog out is the best move.

Must be thick as not to realise the danger!

Remember to Wind down the Windows for Fresh Air and Check the Animals for their Safety!!

dont leave the oldies in the car either with modern cars they dont know how to open windows

Don't have to worry in Wgtn We are lucky if we hit 20 as summer high

No never My son once had his drink spiked ! many years ago !

Nope. It happened to me at pier 21 years back. Lucky I was with people who looked after me. Only remember ambulance at my house pumping my stomach. I don't remember how I got there. My boyfriend at the time was with me. I was talking to 2 suited guys and my boyfriend his mum and friend were chatting. Maybe these guys thought I was alone and I left my spritzer to go to the bathroom and they must have spiked it. At least my experience helped me hammer it home to my daughter to never leave her drink unattended. Daniel Trethewey remember this?

Best action plan is buy your own carry it place thumb over top of stubby or place your palm over glass pay attention to your surroundings. Males tend to travel in pairs often they sit back and watch and don't generally drink alot themselves, keep and eye on those that sit on one drink for entire night. Their position will often be situated between bar, toilet and nearest exit they will wait and watch for your response you'll feel light-headed dizzy and sleepy once you get up from your seat you'll be watched heading to the toilet temperature change in the body will be quick when you notice you'll start heading outside the effects will be noticable to your friends the speech becomes slurred not always. Stay safe be aware note your surroundings. And set yourself a minimum of drinks and stick to it.

Take a sprite lid (or whatever you got from that range) put it on top of your bottle when not in your hand. Take a coaster for glass drinks. Learnt this years ago. Hope it helps

Better yet. Buy them from the liquor store and go home to drink alone. Then you know who spiked ya drink.

Me and my drink have a close and loving relationship, i would never leave her unattended.

Domestic Abuse: It’s not just physical.
Don’t minimise your traumatic experiences just because you weren’t or aren’t being physically harmed. Domestic abuse can also be psychological or financial. If you feel like you are constantly being made to feel like everything you do is wrong, if you are emotionally tormented, made to feel uncomfortable or if someone is threatening you financially or emotionally, you may be a victim of psychological domestic abuse. Do not be afraid to seek help, please check out our website and directory of helplines you can call for support and advice. https://pmgt.org.nz/directory.

With the new year in tow and music festival season approaching we must remember the dangers of party drugs. Drugs like ecstasy, MDMA and Molly are stimulants usually taken at parties, raves and festivals because they increase your heart rate and energy. New Zealand has introduced the KnowYourStuffNZ tent to encourage people that want to take stimulants at festivals to get them tested. If you have chosen to take drugs it is important for you to know whats in them. If you would like to learn more about the effects of stimulants please visit our website: https://pmgt.org.nz/drug-abuse/.

Comment on Facebook With the new year in...

This is a great initiative especially with the bath salts being sold off as other things. It would be great to see more of these things in other hot spots too.

Why don't festivals have drug detector dogs at all entrances to check all people and deliveries. This would ensure the safety of festival goers.!!!

The big question I have is why don’t the NZ police check for drugged drivers like the Aussie cops?
