NZ cops threaten Media for exposing their incompetence
Bloody NZ Police eh? You would think that in the case of their brutal bashing of a guy with Asperger's syndrome in the wake of the Christchurch earthquake that they would reflect on their bashing of someone with mental capacity issues and back down.
But not our boys in blue, not only are these basher cops refusing to drop the trumped up charges of 'looting' two light bulbs against Arie Smith - THEY ARE NOW LAUNCHING AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE MEDIA FOR HIGHLIGHTING THEIR INCOMPETENCE!
Top that off with the NZ Police harassing Mana Party Members and Union activists at home alongside all the new Police powers they want and I think we've reached the tipping point where by we should start examining whether or not NZers have been conned into giving the NZ Police too much power.
Allowing the cops to threaten the media for an expose on their bashing of someone with Asperger's is a power too far.
Even a middle class fog horn like Russell Brown who was more than ready to smear Hone Harawira and myself over the Osama Bin Laden misquote is angry at the Police reaction. When the high priest of the aesthetic left is displeased with the Police, you know middle NZ can't be too behind.
Time to reign these basher cops in.
