shame them into submission

Paul from Pukete

Two recent homicide cases involving children  have sparked calls to end the right to silence,  statements in a recent media item reveal an investigation spanning 2004 to present, carries the names of 12 children whose killers have never been brought to justice. .

The right to silence is enshrined in the Bill of Rights Act. Like most countries in the western world, New Zealand authorities can’t compel people to talk, "Aside from a few  exceptions, we all have – all the time – a right to silence,
Expressed in the article their views echo their outrage 

“Some  say the right to silence allows child abusers to escape punishment, and the law needs to change.

“The rights of victims to justice and the urgent need for offenders to be held accountable far outweighs the right to silence and other privileges that families may seek to use to mask their guilt or involvement.” these occurred in such cases as  He was referring to cases such as Staranise Waru,Chris and Cru Kahui,Atreyu Taylor-MateneandSoul Turany– babies and toddlers whose violent deaths in the past two decades remain unsolved. its “unacceptable” people are refusing to talk when a child is killed,"

Yet i know of no law which prevents the police publicly naming the person's of interest relevant to each case, completely acknowledging the public shame this will bring to the family the culture the tribe what ever is appropriate to each case.

Thus family peer, tribal, or cultural pressure is brought to bear on the individual responsible leaving one of two option to remove the abhorrent stain on the community concerned: to reveal or to ostracise the miscreant either action brings the perpetrator into the light
