Another Police shooting…
Police said the man approached officers with a weapon on State Highway 1, near Pohuehue.
They provided immediate first aid but the man died at the scene from his injuries.
More information would be provided at a news conference this afternoon, police said.
The Police Association said its priority at this time was to look after its members.
…and the stock standard response:
- Police did nothing wrong
- ‘suspected weapon’
- shooting victim had it coming
- Police demand to have more guns
- no comment until after reports
- reports always damning
- media have lost interest in story by then
- untrained alpha Police shoot another person
…repeat again and again and again. Welcome to NZ.
