    Tripe?

    ... rough draft for another Underbelly series.

    ...in deference to our new dairy overlords,
    the Canterbury bite from this franchise
    would have to be... Udderbelly
    :- )

    "It can't happen here". How many times do we hear that? It's not just the corruption, but the cover-up that is the problem, which is also corruption. It's been under Marshall's watch and the buck stops at his desk. Did he know, and if he didn't, why not?

    I applaud the sentence of Home D. here

    Named, shamed and restrained, by the conditions of his sentence. I just wished the Justices would have as fairer view of the normal suspects before them.

    A systemic breakdown of communication

    And in shocking news, the IPCA said "no individual could be criticised" for that breakdown in communication. Most obviously because anyone who does name names is likely to be sued, which is why we have bodies like IPCA who are supposed to criticise on our behalf.

    I wonder if they're taking tips from the PM's office, or is this an independent loss off control?

  • Chris Waugh,

    So somehow nobody, not even those who failed to communicate, can be criticised for failing to communicate. Can anyone be held to account for the fact real people's lives are still being screwed around with?

    From 6 Months back…

    TV3 just mentioned that one of the alleged rapists is the son of a police officer. And suddenly, everything becomes clear…

    And now…

    So somehow nobody, not even those who failed to communicate, can be criticised for failing to communicate.

    Same old same old.
    Cops always look after their own eh?.
    Let’s see what happens here…
    Two Auckland police staff allegedly filmed themselves in a sex act during work hours and sent the footage to a junior colleague as an invitation to join them.
    Some things never seem to change…
    Unless they get worse that is...

    Of staff who reported inappropriate conduct, 76 per cent felt management did not follow through effectively, up from 70 four years before.

    There is a protest against the lack of action in the Roastbusters case, in Auckland on Sat 22nd Nov at 1pm outside the High Court in Waterloo Quadrant (where Symonds St and Anzac Avenue meet).
