According to Denis Joseph, people in New Zealand believe that the judicial system is “too soft” on perpetrators of crime in most cases, and that victims get a very raw deal. He added that this feeling is reflected in talkback radio, letters to the editor and outrageous reactions from the Sensible Sentencing Trust and other independent public organizations. This perception led Joseph to write “The Absolute Bull of New Zealand: How to Get Away with Pure 96.5% Murdher” (published by Xlibris NZ).

The book is a satirical comment on the existing judicial system of New Zealand as seen not only by disillusioned victims of criminality but also by the horrified majority at large. Through satire, the book hopes to create awareness of this prevailing judicial malaise and generate changes in law and procedures to ensure a fair and just system.

“The book represents the views of most New Zealanders in their perception of the existing justice system. The presentation is through the interaction of three humanized animals, which makes it unique. The book takes irreverent swipes at the judicial system, politicians, rules and regulations of councils and government and outrageous behavior of the rich and mighty. The book is also a satire narrated in a humorous vein with a very pertinent message of the need for sensible justice that is evident between the lines,” Joseph says.

“The Absolute Bull of New Zealand: How to Get Away with Pure 96.5% Murdher” aims to highlight injustices suffered by common people that make up the vast majority. It uses satire and humor to comment on society and authority; presented in a unique, interesting and readable way, to motivate people to raise their voice against the injustices of governance and the moral corruption of those in authority.
