Anyway, Steve, sorry if I seemed snappy there, but I really can’t see any evidence that one case has been prioritised over another.
They hide some evidence well eh?.
Armchair sleuthing is very easy, isn’t it?
Yes indeed, speshly whilst playing the violin and wearing a deerstalker hat.
Not to mention the cocaine.
Because it’s a mystery. It still seems very unclear what happened. There’s no vehicle, weapon, motive or likely suspect identified so far. But the cops are interviewing people as far afield as Auckland. I see no indication that they’re not taking it seriously.
I think you dismiss my concerns too readily.
Yes it is a mystery as far as the public are concerned but we are not the ones entrusted to solve these mysteries.
First, there was a vehicle type identified, a Blue Jeep Cherokee.
As for suspect, I would think that a suspect would be found by deductive reasoning, thus.
We should assume in the first instance that there was some sort of motive as it would seem unlikely that this was a random shooting insomuch as there was only one victim, therefore we could deduce that the suspect is, more than likely, local.,
A search of vehicles matching the description that have been, in the recent past, registered in the vicinity, especially vehicles stolen, dropped from the register or recently sold and not re-registered.
Then, after morning tea, we could match those vehicles with reported sightings of gun toting crims in the area, like the one reported at the same time as the shooting.
Or, we could put up a cordon, restrict public access to whatever we feel like and have another cup of tea.
Well yes. Credit where credit is due rather than credit to the leeches.
Really media? Is the Prime Minister going to be asked his personal opinion on every instance of violent crime in the country now?
Well they sure don’t like asking him his opinion of anything important… he won’t recall but he will be relaxed… no news value there.
Ditto Russ, I thought of Phil too.
Hi Phil, love to yer family an all.. ;-)
ETA. Oh Cricket, the one with the round balls.
I found myself yelling at the TV about this.
A famous "rugby player" gets beaten up in Christchurch, a city no stranger to white supremacist bashings for years, and the Media goes into a trenzy not knowing whether to highlight the players fondness for his sponsors product or the fact that this kind of Neanderthal behaviour is still prevalent in the city of Christ.
Within what seemed like hours the perpetrators have been identified and let out on bail.
A man past retirement age but still working on Highways of National's Impotence, gets callously shot to death while attempting to ensure the safety of others and the police drag their collective feet in tracking down the killer, "we are building a database of likely vehicles" they say. WTF? we have a register of vehicles in this country already, go take a look Sherlock.
It seems that if there is Rugby connection all stops are pulled out and no stone is left unturned but if you are old, brown and working on a low wage then forget it, you don't count for squat.
foster awareness of copyright issues in a constructive way – and ensure most of the material you publish is explicitly licensed for sharing.
An oxymoron if ever I saw one.
Dammit, just Pirate everything and give the Artists some FREE publicity... sod the corporate leeches.
Yeah… “age appropriate"… tricky one eh.
For something to be "Age Appropriate" an "Adult" must approve content that, even though they watched peon when they were 13 and it done them no harm, today's kids must be coddled to the point that they won't notice how those same "Adults" are screwing up everything on the planet for their own benefit to the cost of the next generation.
Heaven forbid a "Wardrobe Malfunction" will taint the purity of their little darlings.
In fact If the Living Wage people have a window sticker for businesses adopting this movement I would tend to use them rather than those which would rather pay less than the minimum wage if they could.
And a lonely soul near the mouth of the Awakino River;
Oh noes, there's Crocs in the Awakino. Somebody call the Authoratahs!
