Sharples claims ludicrous

Garth McVicar from the Sensible Sentencing trust says that Pita Sharples whining about the justice system is ludicrous:

Sensible Sentencing Trust spokesman Garth McVicar said it was ludicrous to suggest police held a bias against Maori and that the justice system discriminated against them.

“Most Maori – like most other people – do not commit crime. To suggest that high levels of Maori offending are a result of Police persecution is an insult to every law-abiding New Zealander and an absolute affront on the integrity of Police.”

“For the first time in recent history crime and prison statistics appear to be dropping and that can only be as a direct result of the new message that each and every individual is responsible for their actions – good or bad.”
