Window washing saga shows Police priorities all wrong – ACT

Window washer news

“The Police have shown how out of touch they are with the public with their undercover stunt to try to catch people on mobile phones,” says ACT’s Police spokesperson Chris Baillie.

“All over Auckland, shops are being ram raided. Shop owners are terrified they’ll be the next victim. People are questioning whether it’s safe enough to go the shopping mall. Gun crime is out of control.

“Despite all of this, Police in Auckland were busted by Today FM using a plain clothed officer pretending to be a car window washer to catch people on mobile phones. There were at least four officers involved.

“As a former Police officer myself, I don’t blame frontline staff who are following orders. The problem here is leadership.

“Police Minister Chris Hipkins needs to remind Commissioner Andrew Coster that his officers should be focussed on the serious and violent crimes that are constantly in our news headlines. While Hipkins can’t get involved in individual operations – he can make his expectations crystal clear.

“The people of Auckland and victims of ram raids have the right to feel offended that Police think these sorts of hijinks are a good use of their time.”

  1. Why work hard to go after dangerous criminals when you can play clown world games and win easy revenue from the soft targets instead ????????‍♂️

    Just look at how brutally they cracked down on us peasants during the Covid nazism last year. They are NOT your friend, and they want you to know it.

    And boy oh boy, you’d better believe they’re gonna have some fun when Jacinda’s new suite of censorship laws kick in (just look at the UK cops’ current shenanigans throwing pastors and middle aged mums into jail for “hate” speech)

    Ice Cube said it best, “f*ck tha PO-lice” ????????

  2. This is the lowest of the low. Even worse than the time they were hiding in a tree up the road from my house and radioing to their mates further up which cars to pull over.

    No wonder we have ram rids. Too many cops wasting time revenue gathering in low socioeconomic areas targeting people with the least ability to pay.

    Shame on those cops, their loyalties and morals are all back to front. What has happened to a once respected group of people?

  3. Oh sop they are out of touch ACT, I agree but for my money so are you. Talking about freedom and then backing the COVID mandates….no more vote for you from me Seymour…..
