The Police are not happy…
Police are concerned about the number of bystanders who gathered to film gunpoint arrests on a busy Hamilton street.
It comes after armed police swooped a group of men near a superette on Greenwood St on Sunday afternoon.
By the time police ordered a group of men to the ground at gunpoint, dozens had gathered to watch and film the action.
…with what we know about ill trained NZ Police shooting NZers…
New Zealand police have shot more people in the past 10 years than the previous 40. They shoot almost as many as their counterparts in the UK, which has 13 times the population.
Police bosses deny there’s a problem, but former officers, lawyers and families are calling for a radical rethink of how such cases are handled to stem the bloodshed. Tony Wall and Catrin Owen report.
…shouldn’t we always film cops in action? We know the ill trained NZ cops are becoming as trigger happy as American cops, filming them when they roll heavy is the ONLY way to make the NZ Police Officer fearful there might be consequences if they shoot Kiwis.
We know the Independent Police Conduct Authority is a toothless lap dog to Police, the only thing the Police fear is public scrutiny, so when you see the Police roll heavy, you always get your phone out and record their actions.
It’s the only functioning safety valve to a Police force who know they can get away with murder.
