Newmarket Crime Up 20%

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

Newmartket Business Association general manager Cameron Brewer has pointed out that crime statistics for the Newmarket area show that crime in the past 5 years has increased by over 20% – and that’s just reported crime.

I think we all hoped that Annette King might recognise there is a problem with the NZ Police and that is a significant lack of them. Unfortunately she seems to be producing the same self fulfilling figures that George Hawkins lead the force down the drain with:

Mrs King told the Weekend Herald that the frontline police numbers had increased by 1400 since 1999. As part of the confidence and supply agreement with New Zealand First, a further 1000 police would be provided by 2010

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
