Police on cell bashing charges


Alt Tv/Fleet FM Breakfast News
Police on cell bashing charges
The victim of an alleged bashing by four police officers says he feared for his life when they hit him with batons and squirted pepper spray through vents into a closed cell. Rawiri Falwasser said that after he was soaked with pepper spray, the officers attacked him with batons. One struck him on the top of his head, splitting it open. The stench of pepper spray made other officers in the area outside the cell retreat, and a doctor called to treat Mr Falwasser could not see him through the fog of spray. Senior police and Corrections officers called to investigate the Whakatane case have condemned the actions of the four officers, saying Mr Falwasser posed no threat. The use of batons and pepper spray in the confined space contravened police regulations and the Crimes Act. Witnesses, including doctors who treated Mr Falwasser, said the cell was covered in blood. Here is the interesting thing about this case, all the police colleagues, even a mental health nurse parroted the bullshit defense they had all learned off by heart claiming it was Falwasser’s fault, so the chances of this case having even got this far is an achievement when you realize how deep the code of silence over police violence runs in our dear little country, the only reason why these guys are on trial is because the whole thing was captured on CCTV, and the sheer brutality of what that footage must reveal could be a deep youtube stain on this country when it gets released in court.

So if they did whats claimed should they go to jail for GBH or have counselling and some rehabilitation?

I mean its not their fault ,they're just products of the system right?

My opinion is that if they did it they should spend a couple of years in the penal system but you say the penal system doesn't work. Right Bomber?

You miss the point, the only reason it is going to court is because they have the footage, if we relied on the fellow cops words this prosecution wouldn't be happening. We don't do anything near enough to train and prepare people to be cops and we don't spend enough on professional counselling for them, it's a bloody hard job, this guy obviously went off the deep end and stole a car and he probably wasn't helpful, but his resistance triggered something in 4 other cops who just all jumped in to beat the living shit out of this guy - that isn't the sort of thing that should be tolerated. As for prison, it has to be a last resort and they need to be environments where rehabilitation is possible.

No excuse for them that work within the system swearing to uphold the law.. they break...

Jail & General population will restore Justice... isn't that right, the big call is for harder, longer prison time... now i bet they were good cops, working on better work stories. That nurse should go to Jail aswell...

More horror stories from our beloved police force.

I can't wait for the youtube.

That will cause an international outcry.

It will be even better than the Rodney King L.A. one.

Wow Capt Plod, the mere idea that you could actually be the intellectual level of todays police force surely helps reinforce a call to raise the entry standards by some level

NZ pigs are becoming more and more like the facist pigs of america, our cops are racists, violent and rapists, its going to get worse too with this new breed of power tripping pigs we have now, i wouldnt be suprised if end up having riots like the rodney king incident, mind you NZers are lazy so who knows, all i know is it is torture and that aint right

Those pigs repeatedly smashed Mr Falwasser, and then tortured him with pepper spray. The cell floor was covered with blood.

Nah, that dosen't happen in New Zealand?

Hey Plod, you forgot to say that Falwasser deserved to get smashed because he was brown.

I often wonder to what degree bad laws have helped us end up with a police force which has more in common with gang culture ( things like the code of silence which protects the 'bad apples') than any supposed guardians of the public with the mission to 'protect and serve'.

........ the poor old police have a harder time getting away with their shit now with cammeras everywhere ........... these ones were pretty stupid to get caught by your own ones though.

maybe previous incidents and footage on these cammeras has never seen the light of day ..........
