A bit of spin from those in the force who think they're in the running to be the next Top Cop spot.
Sources have told The Press that Gordon Stanley Meyer's supervisors at Christchurch South police station were not told about the 2007 complaint until after his 2011 offending came to light.
Police National Headquarters said last night there were no "lawful grounds" to tell them about it.
Cart (carriage) before horse:
This will slow the rebuild, add expense and danger to it.
Now we have to deal with live overhead wires and the restriction of working close to rail lines in a city that is still years away from recovery of horizontal infrastructure and general construction.
On the plus side we have a tram that goes nowhere & you'll see not much.

Surely that was the defence lawyer giving the defendants side of things and in the context of the trial is relevant to showing the defendants true belief.
That this is universally damned by all of society and the courts is the shining light to changes in society.
This was a real defence not so long ago.
I'll credit Marshall with answering critics directly and this is a crisis of confidence in the force as a whole where it should be done, but that's it. The content is still lacking in his message and calling Kracklite at home is a step too far me thinks.
DeepRed - I know one of the Army Officers who took part in that Police/Military action on the Bikers in Cathedral Square. He is very proud of that day. :/
This is time to call a friend, walk on the beach or get roaring drunk
I'm sure this will be followed up. Look after yourself.
What do you say to that?
He ain't Peter Marshall, he's Big Brother.
It was suggested having a non-cop as commissioner on Q&A might be a solution. I don't know the answer to that as career Civil Servants are not always talented.
These are the usual suspects for the next Commissioner and many seem to have been in a holding pattern for the top job for a while.
I just assumed it was Hales.
