I'm so over it! Is anyone else sick of hearing about how bad the police are? Get over it already! They make mistakes just like everyone else and I'm sure its only a small amount compared to all the good stuff they do. And if you don't want the police shooting people who are off their heads on party pills (that are "apparently" completely harmless) but you don't want them to use tasers what do you want them to do? Do you want to be hearing about the high amount of police being killed? Make up your minds NZ!! And how come its not ok for a police officer who gives 5 warnings to kill someone who's attacking them but its totally fine for us to be murdering our children every month? I'm so ashamed to be a New Zealander tonight.

Reading Adams death notices in today and yesterdays papers tonight made me cry. It is so terribly sad. I knew him 5 years ago when I was with James. A few months back I got in contact with James again and accidentally he's become one of my very closest friends. This last week has been so hard not being able to do anything to make him feel better, knowing he was at the hospital with Adam and especially when he said the life support was going to be switched off. It is so unfair that this family has to go through this. It wasn't anyones fault. It was one of those terribly tragic things that happens.

One of my friends told me last night that he also knew Adam. Of his group of friends 3 of them have died this year. I didn't know what to say to that. How do I, who hasn't lost anyone really close to me to death and has only been to one teenage funeral, say something to someone who has been to 3 this year alone?
