Apparently the police don’t like this image. I really can’t see why not. They have been sitting on complaints about a pack of juvenile rapists of children for 2 years – why? This parody offers a reason by way of satire.
If the police don’t like it, then they are welcome to attempt their usual harassment of activists. It isn’t anything that I haven’t seen before. That, like this image, are purely political. Just as this post and bomber’s post were. I say this because we know that they have a hard time dealing with politicians. Ask John Banks.
Quite simply the police have a hard job. But they also have a terrible reputation for both ignoring many of the things that are important (like rape) while concentrating on trivialities like idiots bullshitting whilst drunk – ie Operation 8.
Now I’m sure that some apologist will state that I should wait for the toothless “Independent Police Conduct Authority” to come to some judgement. However they are both obstructed by the police and their judgements are simply ignored by the police. Just look at this example story about the police breaking a neck when a group of bored police unlawfully dragged someone out of a party and broke their neck when they batoned them.
Let me make this quite clear. Clear enough for some blockhead in the Police Comms unit to understand. This image is a satire, a parody, and an example of a political statement about the role that the NZ Police are currently taking in our society. It isn’t a good image (in all senses of the word). But the conduct of the Police in this case has and still is pretty damn bad. Their actions in many cases recently has been outright appalling, inept, and reeks of criminal stupidity. In fact it is so much the same as the behaviour of these juvenile dickheads, that it is hardly surprising that they could be regarded as good recruits for the police.
If the police wish to censor this image here as they have with Bomber, then they will have to arrest me. Their grasp of the law is both limited and in this case quite wrong. I’m prepared to spend years running their bad name through the courts to prove it. I will also attempt to run a prosecution against the arresting officer for some kind of malfeasance or whatever other rhubarb charge I can make their life hell with. Also their conspirators who get involved in an attempt to discourage political discourse… After all I am merely following the fine example of the NZ Police.
BTW: I’m really not a fan of the NZ Police after they used a bogus charge of “intimidation by loitering” when my activist niece attended a noisy but peaceful and lawful protest. Nor the threats by some officers that if she continued to attend protests that they’d try to take my grand-nephew away from her. It irritates me a bit…
Listening to their inactive conduct in this rapist case makes me more irritated. Anyone with younger kids in their extended family will feel the same.
Update: Just for good measure. Here is the NZ Herald this morning. Perhaps they can do their frigging jobs as well.
