«Thirty-one year-old Chloe Mathewson died after being attacked by two dogs at Redvale in the early hours of Friday morning.
Her father Jim Mathewson says his daughter was a sensitive, caring and compassionate person — with a glorious sense of humour.
He says Chloe’s magnetic personality drew people to her, and she inspired others.
But Chloe Mathewson also suffered from serious addictions, he says.
In a statement on behalf of the family, Mr Mathewson says: «Chloe is our only much loved daughter and sister to Ben. She was a much wanted child.
‘I was present at her birth and gave her her first feed and we bonded forever. We called her Chloe which is Greek for «blooming, beautiful.»‘»
My thoughts: this is a horrific tragedy. So very sad.
Yet, just imagine if it was both legal and routine in our country for woman to carry a small pistol?
She would probably still be alive.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Yes, she probably would be. The statistics bear out the colloquial wisdom that more guns equals lower crime.
Some may argue she is a victim of too much liberty (with respect to dog ownership). Others (like myself) can apprehend she is in fact a victim of «nanny state» legislation which not only has disarmed us all and left us defenseless against criminals and wild animals, but also has generated a sheepish culture, wherein the very idea of carrying a weapon for personal defense is considered to be virtually a deviant mentality.
Thus, it is also a great tragedy to grasp just how far socialism has institutionalized our population. The very idea of being self reliant and bearing the means of self defense are completely alien concepts.
I’ll probably receive hate mail for making «political capital» out of this tragedy.
EDITOR’S NOTE: And the ones who make political capital by blaming dog-owners’ individual rights for the tragedy probably won’t. Tim Wikiriwhi is currently running for mayor of Hamilton, New Zealand as the Libertarianz candidate.
