Wow... I disagree. He didn't say that he wished for her to need rescue. He didn't say that if she did need rescue that she shouldn't be rescued. He didn't say that if she needed rescue new NZ that she shouldn't be rescued. He simply said that IF she needed rescue that it occurred within a taxing district that he wasn't a part of.

Your characterization of his comments is a bit overblown I think. He is not wishing a 14 year old girl ill.
