The whacky world of Tumeke!

Bomber Bummer is seriously in la-la land.

Just two posts apart is a classic contradiction in the debate of guns and drugs and prohibition.

In his post about the proposed ban of party drugs Bummer intones;

[quote]I don’t support prohibition of Party Pills for the same reasons I don’t support prohibition of tobacco. All this move will do is push everything underground, it’s something else the gangs will sell, this move will help them pay for their next pimp mobile and their kids education. Put restrictions on Party Pills and enforce the restrictions – prohibition doesn’t work![/quote]

Then in the very next post about guns just 13 minutes later all of a sudden prohibition is de rigeur;

[quote]I have nothing but praise for the Police cracking down on illegal guns coming into this country. There are few times I’m genuinely surprised by crime stories, but the news that up to 500 illegal guns have surfaced in NZ has to have a zero tolerance policy. Guns like these have only one role – kill people, quickly, we don’t need or want that ability in this country.[/quote]

Hmmm….okay, so prohibition won’t work for drugs because all it will do is "push everything underground" and give the "gangs something else to sell", but prohinition of guns something he says "we don’t need or want" will work.

Ummm…Bummer, either prohibition works or it doesn’t, can’t have it both ways.

oh and BTW I do need and want and HAVE the ability….I don’t need a pseudonym like "Bomber" to make me look tough, I am tough and I have guns, lots of them.

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. 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 who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

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