Plea for blogger to be arrested. Just the blogger?

A Wellington lawyer wants a blogger who has breached the name suppression of his client to be arrested for being in contempt.

A Wellington lawyer is calling for an Auckland blogger to be arrested after intentionally breaking name suppression.

The blogger has published the name of a high-profile Wellingtonian currently on trial for assault on a teenager, relating to an incident in central Wellington in August 2008.

The man's lawyer Mike Antunovic has raised his concern about the publication in the Wellington District Court. He asked the judge to consider issuing a warrant for the arrest of the blogger for being in contempt of court.

Meanwhile the wife of the high-profile Wellingtonian has given evidence at his trial. The Crown claims the accused hit the teenager after he had run away and stolen money.

The man's wife has told a jury at the Wellington District Court he had to manhandle and drag the teenager back to the car. She says the events leading up to the incident had been stressful and upsetting.

The trial is expected to continue into next week.

So its alright to beat up drag back, and detain an alleged thief in your car? I thought assault was assault was assault? Is this how things are done in the wonderful new world of John Key and his Nationl administration. Thank Christ I don't have too many years to live in this bullshit world. If somebody steals from you use your cell phone and call the police you bloody dickhead.

Good on the blogger in question for naming names!
