Loving father labeled child abuser

It has emerged a Christchurch man who says he was charged after flicking his son's ear is accused of assaulting both of his children.

Last month Jimmy Mason went public with his claims he was harassed by the police when he was spotted disciplining his son.

Police initially warned him, but later charged him with two counts of assault. In court this morning it was revealed the charges are in relation to both his sons, who are aged two and four.

Mason will appear in court on February 26.


As someone said, "A dad who takes his boys out for a bike ride is not going to be the kind of person who would abuse them". The law may have changed, but the principle remains the same, it is a dad's duty to love and discipline his children. 83% of us, New Zealanders made it very clear that we did not want this draconian law. John Key, we are waiting for the National Party to take a position on the Referendum.
