Have you been a victim of any kind of crime in your life? Maybe you know someone who has. This book tells you, in ordinary language, how successive governments and bureaucrats have kept you in the dark about New Zealand's crime rate.

The myth: Home detention will be available for people purely at the lower end of the scale of offending ...no serious or violent offenders - Corrections Dept, 1999 The reality: Over half the 1517 criminals placed on home detention in 2007 had convictions for sex crimes, violence and drug offences - Badlands.

The myth: New Zealand's murder rate is falling - NZ Police, 2011 The reality: Whilst the tripling of the murder rate may seem bad, we now know it could have been far worse ...doctors are now saving the lives of thousands of victims of violent attacks who four decades ago would have died and entered the murder statistics - Badlands.

The myth: A clinical psychologist with sex offender treatment program Safe, said [only] 24 per cent of sex offenders reoffended within 15 years. That rate was halved if they attended treatment programmes. - NZ Herald, 2008 The realty: It is now known that no form of 'treatment' has ever successfully reformed a pedophile; Badlands. There is so much more you haven't been told, every page is a journey of discovery.

Written by former police criminal intelligence analyst and Probation Service advisor David Fraser, Badlands: NZ A Land Fit for Criminals will open your eyes to what's really causing New Zealand's horrific crime rate, and how we can fix it.


David Fraser, a former police criminal intelligence analyst and Probation Service adviser, explains how successive governments - egged on by academics and bureaucrats - have introduced law and order policies that have actually caused an explosion in crime, rather than reduced it.
