Marshall – “Give me strength”

I’m liking the cut of the new Police Commissioner’s jib:

The police commissioner has spoken out over an investigation into whether three police officers wore matching identification during Monday’s raid on Occupy Auckland protesters.

“I hope it isn’t true, but if such stupidity did occur – give me strength,” Peter Marshall wrote in his blog on the police national website.

“Talk about scoring an own goal. This is to be the subject of an employment hearing and the truth will be established.”

In the blog, Marshall also praised the officer’s involved in the raids “softly-softly” approach and said police had been complimented by people including veteran protester John Minto “who is hardly a cheerleader for police”.

Police today arrested 19 people when, supported by security guards, they returned to Aotea Square to clear the remaining tents belonging to  protesters.

One day the mainstream media will link to a source blog. For the record here is Peter Marshall’s blog post.

We can thank Judith Collins for such a fine Commissioner.
