It appears that getting a dream gig as a cop in a beautiful place like Wanaka is more like being made the supervisor of a bunch of adolescents on camp than the sort of hard out policing you’d get in a bigger city.

The cartel like BSC really must have their head in the sand. That, or El Presidente Patrick Lee Lo has not let newbie CEO Lillian Small have access to the interweb.
Despite the fact that the Registrar of Incorporate Societies had to investigate the BSC; despite the shocking expose of the BSC by Rodney Hide; despite the discovery of scumbag SFWU tentacles into the very heart of the BSC; despite the BSC even failing its own Society rules and the constant contradictions from junket seeking President, its new CEO Lillian Small has now been caught out telling porkies.
Members of the Fish Gang have sent through Lillian Smallâs first attempt to get more members to cough over $20,000 in membership fees via a new mail-out. Slight problem with the mail-out, itâs full of porkies.
Members of the Fish Gang have been rolling around the floor laughing in hysterics at comments like âselfâregulating body that operates to a strict code of conductâ. Â Read more »
Cate Broughton reports on a theft:
A Loburn woman who stole a husky dog from Queenstown has not been prosecuted.
The woman, whom police say had good intentions, has been given a pre-charge warning after the incident.
But owner Ryan Watt says the decision is a “joke”.
“Getting a slap on the wrist just tells people, âgo on, help yourself’,” he said.
The woman had been holidaying in Queenstown and says she was concerned the dog, named Wolf, spent his days chained to a small kennel. She also said his coat was so matted he was unable to lift his leg properly.
“We have never done anything like this before,” she said.
“We acted on impulse, taking the law into our own hands, and we understand that it wasn’t the right thing to do, but a dog needs a lot more than simply food, water and shelter.”
What do the Police think about this? Â Read more »

When it comes to the 9 year old drunk kid, Steve Kilgallon continues the media’s focus on anything but the real problem. Â Today, a piece on the poor disenfranchised father
The father of the nine-year-old Hamilton boy caught on video drunk at a skatepark says police have made no contact with him over their investigation and he plans to lodge an official complaint about their behaviour.
The father, who is in a custody dispute with his former partner over the boy and his four siblings, said he was deeply frustrated that he’d had no contact from police investigating the incident, or from Child Youth and Family…
…”Nobody has got in touch with me, not CYFS, not even the police – they have not even told me a thing. I reckon it is their job, their responsibility to tell both parents [of the progress of the investigation], and if they are not going to do their job properly, I am going to take it higher.
“It is really frustrating, I get frustrated every time I think about it. I’d like to ask them why they haven’t spoken to me, they know where I am.”
Now, I don’t want to speculate about “the father”, and how he came to be an absentee father in the first place, but the whole ‘poor me’, ‘look at me’, ‘all I want is my kids’, ‘why isn’t anyone calling me’ routine is personal grandstanding. Â Read more »
Part of the local Helensville extended crime family, this piece of work is a poster child for how to waste a life
Helensville Police are seeking to locate 19 year-old Levi Hemana.
On Monday afternoon as a 39 year-old Helensville man mowed his lawns, Hemana is alleged to have driven past, accompanied by a 17 year-old associate. As their car passed the man looked at Hemana, who allegedly took exception to this. Hemana allegedly stopped the vehicle, got out and said “what are you looking at?” before challenging the victim to a fight and threatening him.
Police say he then got back in his car and drove away. The victim got in his own car and followed the vehicle towards Parakai to try and capture the number plate. The car parked outside a liquor shop and the victim attempted to take a photo of the car rego with his cell phone but was seen by Hemana, who then allegedly ran towards the victim with a golf club, striking the victim’s car and smashing the windscreen.
“allegedly”. Â nudge nudge, wink wink.
Seriously, this prime crime specimen needs to dealt to before he takes care of more business. Â Read more »

Jenna Lynch and Jonathan Carson have the story of the day today. Â They interviewedÂ Bradley Goudie, the 18 year old who recorded the 8 year old boy off his face and made him famous world-wide. Â (if you Â missed it: Â the video is here)
The man who filmed a drunk young boy at a skate park says he would not have released the video if police had acted hard and fast, and communicated that to him.
Bradley Goudie, 18, uploaded a video online which showed a nine-year-old boy at Fairfield Skate Park in Clarkin Rd [Hamilton] on Tuesday afternoon with a can of Cody’s Bourbon and Cola – 7 per cent alcohol.
The boy, who struggles to stand and slurs his speech, says “I’ve been drunk before”. He also says he was given alcohol by his aunt.
Goudie, a professional scooter rider, said he was so shocked by the apparent drunkenness of the boy that he turned his camera on him and exposed what he considered one of the biggest issues in New Zealand – underage drinking.
When he had stopped filming, he immediately rang the police.
I think I would have called an ambulance too. Â Read more »
