SOCIETY DOES its best to

rehabilitate young offenders

and get them back on the rails.

But for some, there is no

hope and no matter what plans

and initiatives are put in, their

lives spiral out of control.

Many years ago a detective

told me a young burglar he had

arrested would go on to kill.

He did. He was involved in one

of the most vicious murders

the city has seen. A totally

random murder of an innocent

young woman.

Another detective told me a

young boy he was dealing with

at the time had the propensity

to become a very serious sex

offender. How right he was.

Like the killer, he is now

serving a lengthy jail term for

terrible crimes.

So what hope is there for the

young teenager who has been

arrested for the Challenge

Opawa service station robbery

last week? (See page 1). We’re

told its the same offender who

robbed it in October.

Chances are the justice

system will see more of this

fellow.

THIS WEEK IN CANTERBURY’S PAST

This week in history saw the first trial of electric lighting at

the Lyttelton wharves on June 19, 1882. On June 20, 1928, the

Canterbury Aero Club was formed. The first pilot trained by

the club was a woman, Aroha Clifford. On June 21, 1851, the

Christchurch Cricket Club was formed. On the same day in

1897 there were huge celebrations for Queen Victoria’s diamond

jubilee which included the opening of Victoria Park on the Port

Hills and the transformation of Market (Victoria) Square. In

1909 the city’s high pressure water supply began operation. On

June 22, 1954, Pauline Parker and Juliet Hulme (right) murder

Parker’s mother in Victoria Park. Their subsequent trial was

one of the most sensational in the city’s history. On June 23,

1854, Pioneer John Deans dies at Riccarton. The preservation of

Deans Bush was one of his dying wishes.

BID TO GET NATIVE BIRDS BACK

Native birds could return to the city

as part of a new project to get people

growing mistletoe in their gardens. The

city council project provides instructions

and the seed to plant the native at home.

Mistletoe used to be a common sight, but

the plant’s popularity had dropped because

native birds were rare in the city and seed

wasn’t being spread naturally. Mistletoe

is a favourite food of the bellbird, and by

encouraging more people to grow it, it

is hoped the birds will return. You can

register to take part before the weekend, on

the city council website.
