MOD NOTE:  This is a split from this thread ....
http://forums.milnet.ca/forums/threads/107243.0.html
.... to keep the commentary out of the haka video thread.


Unfortunately, an ex-pat Canadian has slandered L/Cpl Baker's good name:

Shame that it's the idiots who get the attention with the comments - well done to the organizers of the (too little, too late) apology.  It appears the few negative comments on the YouTube video were quickly jumped upon.

Was going to say something rude and visceral and suggest something illegal...instead I'll just go with "Move to Antarctica you Elton John lookalike douchetard - someone might appreciate you there". 

I guess I have a thing for people that directly or indirectly support dirtbags that blow up medics...

RIP Troops  :salute:

I know we generally try to keep bandwidth down here but this is one instance where I would prefer to see comments pertaining to Burstyn whatsername separated from the discussion about the Haka farewell.

The Haka deserves to standalone.

As said by others.  Moving.

A New Zealand filmmaker who provoked outrage over her online comments about a dead soldier is praising Toronto police for their help, claiming that Auckland officers refused to immediately investigate rape and murder threats against her — allegations that the New Zealand force denies.

Sumner Burstyn, who is married to a Canadian filmmaker from Montreal and is working in Toronto, became the target of a vitriolic internet campaign after making provocative comments about Lance Cpl. Jacinda Baker, a female soldier from New Zealand who was recently killed in Afghanistan.

Nope. Don't feel sorry for you at all.


I don't condone the violence of the feed back left to her but if you're going to say something stupid expect stupid results.

Congrats Sumner, you earned your 15 minutes of fame by playing on the death of another human being- how noble of you. Time for you to write a book about your experience and capitalize even more, I hope you at least donate some of the proceeds to the family of the fallen.

As a Canadian I am disgusted by both you hiding here and your "woe as me I'm afraid" attitude.

This is a long winded article to 'defend" a journalist and point out that there are internet threats that can be dealt with by the police should they be given the information.


Although I do not agree with people (of any background) conducting themselves in such a manner on the internet, as those who have sent her repulsive threats, I find her just as repulsive in her blog and suspect that she has been a frequent contributor to many of the "Comments" on the CBC and other Canadian news sites.

I find her words here to be suspiciously similar to comments made on the internet, and voiced by other protest group mouth pieces:


http://news.sympatico.cbc.ca/world/new_zealander_facing_online_death_threats_turns_to_toronto_police/cb58cdf4
"Oh, so fallen soldier Jacinda Baker liked boxing and baking - did they forget she also liked invading countries we are not at war with, killing innocent people and had no moral compass," Burstyn wrote, adding that the soldier "100 per cent does not deserve our respect."

I would conclude that this "victim" is in herself a originator and perpetrator of quite a bit of internet 'trash' (just to be polite) talk.

Perhaps not by her blog, but I have just recently read those very words on other Internet postings, one of which I think I ran across on Facebook.  She has not escaped the world of "cyberspace" where once it has been posted, it can be retrieved.

The links are too numerous to post, but reading them will give you a fairly defined picture of Mrs Sumner-Burstyn as being very much a anti-military, anti-war mouthpiece.

I figured that out when I saw the Karl Marx quote on her blogsite.

Other than stating that she apologizes, she continues to carry on to slag the fallen, the military, and men.  For one who is in her line of work, she really doesn't understand the word "apologize".

That does appear to be the way she rolls, no?

...she is a true ingrate that truly abuses the rights to free speech granted her as a result of soldiers giving their lives, both from her home nation and her adopted one.

That's always the way eh?

Like that guy out west a few months ago. Some big shot broadcaster or whoever was pulled over by the police and bitched and whined about how bad he was treated- until the police reviewed the tape commented on it and threatened to release it to the public. He apologized and it was the same "I'm apologizing through my teeth because I have to but I still think you're assholes"

Her apology was horseshit IMO.

No, it's not even an attempt at an apology -- she's an attention whore who is using the increased attention to further spew her anti-military venom, adding domestic violence and child abuse.....but now, she's the victim, and not LCpl Baker and her family and friends.

I'm embarassed for her to be known internationally as a Canadian.


See bitch, no threats; just disgust -- reap what you sow.
