Apparent Waiouru medal thief says 'sorry' to NZ

Apparent Waiouru medal thief says 'sorry' to NZ
One of those claiming to be responsible for the theft of 96 priceless war medals from the Waiouru Army Museum apologised for the burglary. An actor with a disguised voice appeared in place of the man on TV3's Campbell Live programme, amidst assurances that nothing that he had told the programme had been changed. "We realised the historical value of what we'd done," he said. "We knew their value, just not how the public would react. "We want to say sorry to everyone in New Zealand, and we're just happy they've got them back in pristine condition. "We made a big mistake and we regret it." "We decided to return them on our terms without being detected or caught." He said that now "everyone's happy".

Well, TV3 will be happy, what a brilliant coup for Campbell Live to interview the crim ā€“ there is some panic amongst the chattering pundits that crims will target historical artifacts and hold the country to ransom which credits the criminal fraternity with far too much forethought, more likely will be the fact that the intense media scrutiny in such a small country will out whoever did this and the pressure will squeeze them into the waiting arms of the Police. Iā€™m still scoring this as Cops 1 ā€“ Crims 0.

Could cost TV3 though ...

Police said last night and today they had no comment to make following the appearance of the man on Campbell Live last night.

A media law expert said today she doubted police could compel TV3 to reveal the man's identity.

Just in case you were wondering, he doubled his ratings last night.

TV3 producers and staff who arrange the interview should be arrested. And if any of them have children they should be waterboarded in front of them till they provide evidence to catch the crims.
