Am I surprised the NZ media haven’t made more of the revelations NZ Police shot at a mentally disturbed man 12 times and the ‘machete’ was actually a 7 year old blunt ornamental knife?

No. I’m not surprised in the least.

This is NZ, and we are in phase 7 of the 8 phases of media response to NZ cops killing someone

 

  • 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
