On Radio Live, Laws railed against Manukau chief fire officer Larry Cocker and National Commander Mike Hall for comments they made after a fatal South Auckland house fire in January.
Four children died in the fire, which the firemen said might have been prevented had chips not been left unattended in a frying pan, and smoke alarms been installed and/or operational.
Laws accused the Fire Service of using "little dead Polynesian kiddies as a marketing tool".
In a sustained attack, he said Cocker should have the "er" removed "you're a cock".
He called the firemen "dickheads in a uniform", "idiots", "morons", "arseholes" and said racism was going on.
Laws went totally over the top on this occasion, in our humble and considered opinion. The facts in this tragedy are that cooking WAS left unattended, and a fire ensued. That the dead children were Polynesian is largely irrelevant; this would have been equally tragic had the children been black, white or brindle. Once of the key planks of the Fire Service's public service advertising is that unattended cooking can result in loss of life, and sadly, this case proved that as a fact.
Laws needs to pull his head in and apologise. We also think that he should hope that he never needs the Fire Service in such circumstances, although we reckon that the firemen would be a whole lot more professional in their jobs than Laws is in one of his!
