Police culture and competence...
Top cop 'forgets' crime files in cupboard!!
Yet Rodney Hide weighs in on on how dirty police cars are - apparently that really depresses him!!!
and I see court documents have 'disappeared' from files on the Pike River case
seems that having systems is no guarantee of people following them.
be nice if police and justice always extended a helping hand rather than sitting on them.
What do you think we should do?
Drag them, kicking and screaming, out of denial and into the 21st century!
Flow and Eddy...
They say that aurora sing to you. It seemed so. As one watched, these curtains...
Boys named sue...?
Please delete my earlier comment if it is in any way a possible legal impediment, but I would really like to know if there was less of an inquiry because one of the boys' fathers was a policeman, that he might have been at the same station as the Child Protection Team, to my mind, makes it worse, if it is true that none of the boys' parents were approached formally or in any recorded fashion (ie a paper trail or notes)...
Hearing Greg Connor try and say they were overworked and under resourced, when they didn't even do the basics, makes my blood boil - especially if they could have just talked to the parent-officer on site!
Danyl also agrees they need to be sacked.
Sounds like these ‘old cops’ didn’t think this child protection squad supplied the ‘better work stories’ they wanted – but what message does that send the ‘new cops’ ?
Do we know if any of these police have children themselves?
I’m thinking not, as they have shown no empathy or compassion …
or even any clue – given the number they ignored!
So just got the early morning traffic on the move.
Good to see that everyone is staying on their correct side of the road...
I’ll wear a parka.
It really is more duffle coat territory...
Without yeast I’m not going to rise...
I'm leaven well enough alone, too...
St Elmo's fire...*
I love this bit:
The atmosphere was so charged, however, that operators made an incredible discovery: They could unplug their batteries and still transmit messages to Portland, Maine, at 30- to 90-second intervals using only the auroral current.
Tesla, come in please...
