    Having a balanced perspective of Tame iti’s conviction for his guns & weapon charges. You’d probably want him to be treated fairly like this fulla was eh? Compared to this guy Bernard Shapiro Tame is much less a threat wouldn’t you think?? …. he had unlawful possession of two military style semi-automatic rifles, thunderflash explosives, power gel explosives, eight sticks, two military flares, a smoke grenade, a grenade launcher, an anti-personnel mine; he pleaded not guilty. He’s found guilty on seven of the eight charges. And what does he get? He gets asked to pay $5000 to the St John’s Ambulance.

    Yes, I’ve heard of that case as well, Denny, from another blog.

    If I have the time, I might research similar forearms cases and chech out what the ‘tariff’ is for sentences.
