  1. The thing is we don’t even know that this is true
    Could be a distraction to taint the proceedings
    To Kelvyn Alp and Hannah Spierer appearing in Court today
    Who would know?
    Nothing would surprise me

  2. Cops are shooting people who have in their possession non-projectile weapons, ie machete, knife, stick etc.
    THAT is where the Tasers should come in to the picture, but I’m seeing too many Police Firearms being drawn and fired into those who could otherwise be tasered, or simply over-powered.

    No doubt the CCTV of the intersection has been seized, wiped or labeled as ‘inoperative’…but I wonder about Cop Cam…! All very convenient for the NZ Police that is heavily saturated with Freemasons!
