Two men cut off part of a flatmate's finger in a dispute over rent, Napier District Court was told yesterday.

Roger Johnson, 46, and Shayne Fryer, 37, both unemployed of Waipukurau, were remanded for sentencing after pleading guilty in Napier District Court to maiming Lee Walter with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, The Dominion Post reported.

Mr Walter, 49, stayed at the defendants' house for a few days on October last year after agreeing to pay $170 and a 1976 Ford Fairmont as rent.

When Mr Walter said that he was unable to pay the cash, the two men, who had drinking large quantities of alcohol, threatened him with a 30-centimetre-long butcher's knife.

Fryer forced Mr Walter's hand on to a mantelpiece and Johnson severed the finger at the knuckle closest to the fingertip.

[W]hat the internet and its cult of anonymity do is to provide a blanket sort of immunity for anybody who wants to say anything about anybody else, and it would be difficult in this sense to think of a more morally deformed exploitation of the concept of free speech.
- Richard Bernstein in the New York Times
