I thought that was really sad because we are all New Zealand citizens, and I know for a fact that there are a lot of Cook Islanders living in NZ who did time in prison and they haven’t been deported back. I used to live in NZ.
Mr Franklin went to court and went to prison for what he did; now that he has done his time, doesn’t he deserve a second chance? Is there any compassion left?
When a person has faced our justice system and comes out, is it the people’s turn then to start judging that person all over again?
Let not our hearts be so hardened – deporting him is not the answer.
