Laws and police priorities

Commenting on the John Key teapot tapes, Michael Laws on Radio Live advocated shooting journalists in the Herald on Sunday. He said:

Talking about journalists on his show on Friday, Mr Laws said: “If I had a gun I’d shoot them, put them out of their misery, because they have gone rabid and they may infect others.” He continued: “The Herald on Sunday for example, which is rabid all the time. No idea why somebody hasn’t taken the shotgun there and just cleaned out the entire newsroom.”

Section 174 of the Crimes Act reads as follows:

Every one is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 10 years who incites, counsels, or attempts to procure any person to murder any other person in New Zealand, when that murder is not in fact committed.

While the police are executing a search warrant at the Herald on Sunday at John Key’s request, perhaps they might be able to spare the time to follow up this issue? Preventing violence is much more important than protecting the Banks/Key plot for Epsom.

    Agreed, Mike.

    Lhaws is one of the biggest, smelliest turds this country has ever seen.

    If the Police have any “spare time”, his comments should be followed up by them.

    Perhaps the nice Mr Key might like to lay a complaint.

  2. Lhaws is a raving lunatic. He was always unstable but now he’s crossed over into psychosis.
    He needs to be sectioned under the Mental Health Act.
    Shame on Radio Live for exploiting his illness.

    It’s very interesting reading that psychopaths ravings
    I wonder if the SST will treat the creep like they treated S Braunis?

    I hope Lhaws doesn’t have a fire arms licence.

    He’s a nut job and should face charges. If I said the same thing but pointed it toward JoKey and the Nasty party I would be gone to jail by lunch time.

    Take what happened with Keith William Mabey.

    Lwhores is a vile piece of right wing shit

    I dunno how the hell wangavegas even voted the clown in

    Hes vile racist and needs to be arrested over this but he wont cos people like him have a separate law than the rest of us

  6. Yep. Someone should complain to the police. The response should then be mentioned. Is there a link to his comments? I might pop along to the police station and do it myself.

      The police won’t act without a complaint, and the sooner the more likely. If you’re considering it, do it today. The Herald has had extra security guards on their building – they take it seriously.

      • the pink postman 6.1.1

        Well there is nom reason why an arrest canmot be made under the law/Aftr all according to Key the ploice have plenty of time on their hands now. This right-wing fanatic is becoming dangerous , If this had been some well know Leftie they would be inthe nick by now .If the poor sod had also ben brown I expect they would have givenn him a few taps with their lazars/truncheons or the pepper spray.
        I also wonder what the Sensible Sentencing nutters think about this ?

          I also wonder what the Sensible Sentencing nutters think about this ?
          The SST have no problem with white guys who actually kill people (think Bruce Emery), so they definitely won’t have a problem with Michael Laws threatening to kill people. After all, from SST’s perspective it’s just a threat, it’s not like it’s real. And even if it becomes real, he’s white (under all the make-up), so it’s OK.

    I had respect for him when he resigned from parliament way back in the early 90s over what appeared to be a relatively minor infringement & not even done by himself.

    Since then he has proved to be a complete asshole.
    Since the Whanganui thing I didn’t think it was actually possible to have less respect for him.
    Today he proved me wrong.

  8. Jackal 8

    Interestingly it’s not the first time Laws has been in breech of the law.

  9. Tiger Mountain 9

    He called in sick apparently yesterday for his slot and the station got a last minute replacement. At the very least the police need to speak to this spinner.

    When he was Mayor I wrote to him about the “h” in Wanganui issue. He wrote back via email with a council letterhead and details; “Go back to your dope, that’s what northland does best”. Heh I don’t even smoke. He verbally attacked some school kids too from a kura who included the town naming issue in some project work.

      The word in Whangaz is that he has both mental health and substance related issues. Not to mention ego difficulties, now that he’s regarded as a joke around the town.

    • joe90 9.2

      I’m reluctant to put the boot into ex mayor Micky because it seems he’s involved in a particularly nasty and vindictive dispute.
      And even though it’s mostly self inflicted and I do detest the man with a passion I’m finding it difficult not to have at least some sympathy for him and his situation.

    Laws did the same in Christchurch earlier this year when he said the young man with aspergers syndrome who compulsively stole a light bulb looked like a rat and, seeing the young fullas black eyes and bruises FROM POLICE AND ARMY BEATING – SHAME ON YOU, stated that more vigilante action should be undertaken.

    A poster on here made a formal complaint to police under the same section 174 of the Crimes Act about this and posted a copy fo the letter on this site. It was an ex-politician now in west oz, can’t recall the name. Anyway no response was forthcoming from the police and a follow-up also yielded no response.

    Laws has this history of encouraging extreme violence and police must take action against this criminal.

    What are the police doing about these events? Nothing? It is pretty disturbing – and will be more so when some looney gets all wound up listening to Laws on the wireless and decides there is nothing to lose and so takes up the suggestion resulting in death.

    What are the police doing about it?

    • the pinkpost man 10.1

      This was disgracefull and Law’s could not keep his slimy nose out of it. Just to hit the headlines . The police must arrest this dangerous out of control nutter now,
