    Presumably, Auckland votes are more valuable than the last few strands of DNA

    Bet they value their DNA inordinately! Is this what social Darwinism looks like (your emoji of choice here)

    Police Association president Greg O'Connor

    He's getting paid to be an apologist for incompetence or in plainer language,
    an Arsehole.

  • Hard News: Villainy and engagement, in reply to SteveH,

    No. But he was trying to make a point in his limited journalistic way. And journalism is a limiting way of looking at life. His point? This:

    The affair is important because of what it says about the way we treat each other today. It demonstrated that the most vicious sort of verbal abuse has become widespread and acceptable to many.

    I just ask why? His answers are puerile.
    I'm better off working it out for myself. So are you.

    Police culture and competence

    On a general point find this case shocking for the girl and their families. And on police culture I don't know how deep competence checks go and how and if they are done.

    But locally,the police cant be trusted to get anything right. They jump in hobnail boots and all when its not required, and turn a blind eye when they should be investigating fully and properly. Even tho they may be nice folks and all, professionally they just cant be trusted to get anything right, apart from issue traffic tickets.

    Well seems this current crop of esteemed leader and money worshipers don't even think they will die, or they act as if they won't. Perhaps their god will come thru for them. Perhaps money can solve all ills! (time for a Tui ad). And anyway they are having way too much fun slagging off anyone who doesnt think like them.And thinking up delicious ways of enslaving people's while calling it by all manner of grand sounding titles.Zero hours! yes time will stand still till The Grand Hassnumarse's are ready, Nature will bend to their will.

  • OnPoint: Leviathan,

    defining features of liberal democracies, a feature which set them apart from police states. It was important because it set clear boundaries on state power;

    The "state" in many countries stepped out of bounds a while ago. The question is how do we as subjects of any state (which are after all just people who fool themselves into thinking they are doing a job) get it back to being an intergral part of our lives, and in some cases a helping hand, and not an all-consuming beast?
    Donkey and his mates dont have an answer. They are just lackeys for the beast.

  • OnPoint: Leviathan,
