NZ Police on line censorship deserves anonymous attention
The NZ Police have over stepped their authority by such a margin, surely a short sharp shock to their online position by Anonymous is in order?
I am referring to the NZ Police censoring online medical marijuana site, Greencross. The NZ Council for Civil Liberties wrote to the Police last year demanding an answer as to why the hell the NZ Police are censoring online political sites, the Police response in December by District Commander of the Central District, Russell Gibson, was a joke...
My responsibility is to enforce the law as devised by Parliament. It is neither appropriate nor helpful for me to become involved in a debate regarding political issues.
From my perspective I am satisfied that Detective Sergeant Paroli was working within the boundaries of the law and his motivation was simply to close down a site which assisted/encouraged offending against the Misuse of Drugs Act.
...Bullshit! By censoring an online site dedicated to the political argument to decriminalize medical marijuana, Russell Gibson HAS entered the political debate and is using his Police power to decide the rest of us are not allowed to hear it! The Police have over stepped their authority by such a massive margin. They are not political censors, they are Police, it is not their role to censor anything!
Our Police forces despicable arse kissing to the US authorities in the Kim Dotcom joke of a case is disgusting enough, but when the NZ Police are actively censoring online material they don't like in NZ well beyond their actual authority, well that's when someone has to do something.
The NZ Police should count their lucky stars that this hasn't filtered out to Anonymous yet.
