I don't think it's fare to generalise when it comes to disabilities. We have a friend who would love to get faced on queens street and enjoy himself but he has an inverted southland foot and no arms so he wouldn't stand a chance out there.
You can't blame the dogs for this bad behaviour but the owners, and they should be disqualified from walnking in pubic.
Lets hope the city doesn't become obsessed by this one off occurrence.

Whilst I find the drunks dressed up as Santa thing funny, why do we let people in the country with known ‘trouble making’ backgrounds in the first place? Could we not identify these people in the first instance?

I saw this as well, if we are talking about yesterday about noon. One of the dogs was braking at the proper Santa in the shopping centre.

This disgraceful behavior! I'm an EX Pat that lives in New Zealand and was happy until about 3 years ago when a known trouble making couple from Peterborough moved to Auckland. They haven’t left there trouble making ways back in the UK and continue to walk the streets with their Labrador attack dogs drunken and slurring there speech at everyone who walks by them. I saw them last night dressed up as Santa and Mrs. Santa, they had even dressed the dogs up as Elf's, they were basically hammered from cheap wine shouting abuse at people in the Botany shopping Centre!

All this is the reason why most responsible drinkers do not go out at all because you cannot go out and have a good quiet time and drink without all this rubbish going on and getting harassed by the drunks. The government knows how to sort...raise da damm age, simple as that.

This is nothing new, certain cultural groups have always been really bad with booze. It makes them violent and aggressive and they learn it from their elders. Some people just grow up thinking everything can be resolved with a bit of biffo. I'm 33 Queen St had the same groups doing the same things back when I was 20. However, there's a definite increase in younger idiots on Queen St these days, and they just don't have the intelligence levels to take it easy with the drink. I'm all for increasing the age limit in bars to 20, let the younger ones drink at home, I'm sweet with that, but keep them out of the bars. That's where there's no supervision no control.

I saw this a lot. Puts me off staying late to be honest. If people are enjoying themselves and keeping to themselves fine. But it's obvious that people can't and don't do that.
