Silly boy going to a gun fight with a hammer

Man shot dead by police ‘had hands by his side’ – witnesses – 27 Sep 2007 – NZ Herald: New Zealand National news

Witnesses say the man shot by Police had his hands by his side. Yep, quite possibly true, the fool probably thought when the cop said hands up or I shoot he was only joking.

I bet Keith Locke is wishing he had approved Tasers right about now.

You know if a cop with a gun told me to calm down it wouldn’t take me much more than a nano-second to think about it and comply.

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.
