OK- different day and different circumstances. But why did the Police allow pro-cannabis activists to flagrantly break the law in the grounds of Parliament yesterday, for four hours as reported in this morning's Dom-Post? And who has cropped the photograph above, which in an earlier online appearance was NOT a close-up, and clearly showed a uniformed Police officer in the background? Are the New Zealand Police top brass again embarassed to have their indifference towards illegal activity highlighted in the public domain? If not, they should be! The law may be an ass, but it is the law, and Police officers are sworn to uphold it.
Update - just found the original picture, from Stuff ealier this morning (around 8am) - coincidence, or conscience? You be the judge!
