How to divert the Television Generation public;

Strategem #1: Blame it on dem filthy lazy benes! (*tick*)

Strategem #2: Stand up to dem lazy, uppity Mow-ries! (*tick*)

Strategem #3: Host an international sporting tournament! (Did that last year.)

Strategem #4: Declare war on someone! (Fiji? Kermadec Islands? A passing iceberg?)

Strategem #5: Invite some Royals to visit! (Clothing optional)

.

Full pathetic story

I understand that the Police in Christchurch are stressed, tired, and are burdened with keeping their community safe over the last twelve months.

That is the only rational reason why they seem to have lost the facility for basic common sense, in regards to Cornelius Arie Smith-Voorkam.

I understand that the Police have a tough job. I understand that they deal with awful situations that many of us only glimpse on tv shows like “Police Ten 7”. But I also understand that someone in the Police Force should have realised the mess they were creating for themselves and called a halt.  Police HQ should have intervened; had a quiet word with Inspector Derek Erasmus; and sent Arie on his way.

In this instance, the Police have done more harm to their reputation than any organised crime gang ever could.

Defendent: NZ Police

Charge sheet: Lack of common sense

Public verdict: guilty

It seems that a measure of common sense has been shown here, with regards to TVNZ.

Let’s hope the police “offer no evidence” (ie; drop all charges), when Arie next appears in Court. This ridiculous farce has gone on far too long.
