Racing Industry raid smells like failed Urewera raids

This massive raid against the Racing industry smells bad and you always know when a case smells bad with the cops in NZ  because they don’t have their story straight when it comes to arrest time.  You see it whenever they shoot or chase someone to death, you saw it with the Red Devils case, you saw it with the failed Urewera Terror case.

My guess is Police stumbled upon meth use by Jockeys, flexed their mass surveillance powers and amassed texts & emails Police will claim equate to conspiracy and were forced to try and make a case of this because it was costing an arm and a leg.

This whole thing reeks of an expensive fishing expedition.

I barely trust the NZ Police to respond to an event in real time without making the situation worse, I have zero faith in our knuckle dragging alpha male cops having the basic emotional IQ to surveil people in real time and make nuanced decisions about the human condition on that surveillance.

  1. Clearly, this is a job for special forces envy.

    DYNAMIC ENTRY

    I’ve heard that kind of thinking enough that I get it, but I just don’t agree with it. The chaos and corruption can just as easily lead to authoritarianism (Singapore’s hyper strict law abiding authoritarianism is rare, usually it enable corruption). And all the chaos really only undermines authority, which they try to “fix” by sending the police after protesters and the like.

    Honestly, we just need the opposition down by 2% in the polls and stop tolerating these shenanigans as “the least worst” option… but then again, we have our own Augusto Pinochet in the wings. Yay authoritarianism.

  2. It did seem like incredible overkill and the fixed race were for the benefit of a tiny sum like $1000? But race fixing is not acceptable nor drug use. Pity serious fraud don’t use their powers to bring down white collar and drug laundering corruption and people trafficking in NZ worth millions… The other day I posted some people who had been in NZ for 26 years, never put in a tax return but still got citizenship. Something is wrong here, we already have enough of our own petty criminals, why are we giving residency and citizenship to criminals and tax dodgers and offshore bludgers and turning a blind eye to NZ employers running the scams?

  3. Gambling involves bad people. Who knew?
    In other breaking news, speed kills, drugs are bad for you and Hosking is a toolbag.

  4. You come from it with mass knowledge of the police, I from ken of the Trots. Not really the latter, but my pa bored us senseless with the difference between trotting and pacing. Rugby, racing, beer. You need an inside informer from that old third of NZ culture. Otherwise I canne take it serious, enthusiastic bloke.

    Yes Martyn, it is only a guess, and as usual, when it comes to anything the NZ Police do, you are ready, willing and able to make stupid comments like the above.

    There is a lot to yet come out….why dont you just be patient!

    • … aaaand on queue someone stumbles out of the cheap seats to defend the NZ Police. In a democracy, it’s as normal to criticize police as it is to criticize politicians. In a police state, it’s shocking and wrong to criticize the Police. What kind of society do you think Aotearoa is, Gary? I’m guessing you’ve never been harrassed by police while peacefully enacting your democratic rights …

  6. Nothing to do with Jockeys, different code.
    Someone left a message on the Integrety hot line about race fixing which has been passed to police who used phone intercepts discovering drug use and dealing amoung harness drivers, simple as that.
