Pumpkin case: Police say 'We did the right thing over car'

Pumpkin case: Police say 'We did the right thing over car'
Police are staunchly defending their handling of the An An Liu homicide inquiry, but remain under fire for taking days to discover her badly beaten body in the boot of her husband's car. Deputy Police Commissioner Rob Pope commended the inquiry yesterday, saying it had proceeded "in keeping with best professional practice". During the 45 hours between the Police arriving at the home and discovering the body in the boot, many of the journalists were leaning on the car writing their notes and joking that the body was in the boot. The incompetence of the Police is matched by the weird desire by the Media to call this little girl, ‘Pumpkin’ in an attempt to sell the story to a mainly white audience who obviously felt too alienated by her real name Qian Xun Xue so the media had to create a cute nickname for her. Dumb cops and a media dumbing down the story. Dumb, dumb, dumb.

I think you'll find it was the Australian police who created the nickname.

In the absence of her actual name it was inevitable Qian Xun would become associated with "Pumpkin".

She was given the nickname Pumpkin because no-one knew who she was and she was wearing a Pumpkin Patch top.

Also, as those of us who have had children know, little pet names are used a lot with children of that age i.e. Poppet, Pumpkin, Pet, Bambi, Snuggles etc. I know they can sound silly to people who haven't been close to small children.

She is a sweet little Poppet and I can quite see how Pumpkin has stuck.

I do not think there is anything sinister going on with the name.

As for the Keystone cops, until someone can come up with a plan to attract smarter people into the police force you will get what you deserve.

The aussies media is apperently giving it to our police.

......... which is a bit on the nose considering that our police force is at least no-where near as bent and corrupt as a lot of the aussie police forces.

But leaving the poor womans body in the boot of the car does seem piss poor policeing.

............ if someone had of rung up and made an anonymous call stateing that our asian couple were selling drugs the cops could have kicked in their door and searched everything.

.............. I guess drugs are more dangerous than murder.

Why did you use Pumpkin instead of her real name in your own headline Bomber? Dumb.

Sadly,
Bomber had to use the headline as well because the average tumeke reader isnt smart either.

It's called getting a search warrent dumbass. Maybe you'd like them to dispense with that formality when they search your house. Again.

Why are you protesting about stupid police? Since you'd be at the business end of a taser gun I would have thought you'd be reveling in their incompetence. So whats happened. Changed your tune then and decided to become a law abiding citizen. LOL Just keep on piping up P head since that all you're good for.
