Only in banjo twanging, redneck loving, Cop worshipping NZ 2
Unbelievable - so no one was responsible for the death of George Harris - no one, not the drunk off duty cop who beat him in the back of the Police car, not the two cops who sat by and allowed George to be be beaten, not the three of them for chasing him into the path of an on coming truck...
Hung jury in case against policeman
The jury deciding the case of the police officer accused of covering up of the circumstances leading to the death of a man fleeing custody has been unable to return a verdict.
Clinton Lyall Hill is charged with assaulting George Harris before Mr Harris escaped and was hit and killed by a truck about 4.30am on October 3, 2004.
Hill is also charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice.
He was an off-duty constable who had arrested Mr Harris for allegedly trying to steal his cell phone. He denies there was ever an assault or a cover up.
...only in banjo twanging, redneck loving, Cop worshipping NZ ladies and gentlemen. It seems a NZ Police Officer has to beat up sons of Detectives before immunity gets lifted.
Extraordinary, what a sad day for justice.
