Bet it was Vitamin P again

Unsurprisingly [Name removed because a stupid Judge bought a sob story from a fee fixer lawyer and retrospectively applied name suppression despite every news agency in the country reporting his name] has been arrested again:

A high-profile Auckland property developer was taken away by police who raided a central city apartment building this morning, says the man’s son.

A swarm of armed and plainclothes officers descended on a Karaka St address – described by one resident as Auckland’s ‘Hotel California’ – in Eden Terrace about 5.30am.

They executed search warrants as part of an ongoing investigation by the Auckland City child exploitation team.

The police systematically checked each of the 28 flats at the three-level Artizanz Apartments building and arrested two men and a teenage girl.

The building’s owner, property developer [Name removed because a stupid Judge bought a sob story from a fee fixer lawyer and retrospectively applied name suppression despite every news agency in the country reporting his name], was taken to the police station, said his son [Name removed because a stupid Judge bought a sob story from a fee fixer lawyer and retrospectively applied name suppression despite every news agency in the country reporting his name].

He said his father had been taken away in handcuffs.

This will be another case of Vitamin P addiction.

UPDATE: An ill formed Judge retrospectively applied name suppression in this case, after Barry Hart the lawyer currently being investigated for rigging his fees sold the Judge a nice sob story.

      I used to tell people that smack (heroin) and crack (rock cocaine) were the most evil drugs out there … I may have been right back then, but now, Boss Hogg, you’re thoroughly correct: methamphetamine (P) is evil shit.

    I know all Y’all  are enjoying Duckhead making a complete Goose of himself, but surely the best news article of the day is the P lab bust north of Taupo.

    The police officer in charge should be treated as a national hero.  And all of his staff need recognition for this type of achievement.  I would like to see a bonus incentive scheme for officers in this line of work.

      Okay … sorry, found it easily enough:

      and here: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10785946

      FWIW, I think we citizens overlook our local PCs too easily. They do one hell of a job in policing NZ in general, and are usually recognised as one of the least corrupted police forces in the world. 

      In the interests of honesty and heading off trolls, I will also acknowledge the slightly corrosive NZ Police culture in the 1980’s and early 1990’s that lead to cases like Louise Nicholas etc. But despite these sensational “lowlights” we need to recognize that this was a (terrible) exception to our generally great NZ Police force. 

      In the small town I came from (but not limited to that) our cops were generally well respected and did an amazing job of balancing rule-of-law, kids acting out, domestics, Drunk and disorderly, gang related sh**, and even downright scariness. Sometimes they weren’t perfect, but that is perhaps what they needed to be for the situation in that small town.

      Going back to the original post, seems the NZ Police manage to incorporate a similar role as that of the USA’s “DEA”… and yet in NZ we don’t need a whole ‘nother “special unit” because the Police force executes well in these situations. This is thoroughly admirable. Kudos to you kiwi Police.

      Another reason why our suppression laws don’t work. One of the whales favourite subjects.

    Ahh so this is what woke me up at 6am yesterday morning! In the bewilderment of being jolted awake I thought there was a gunfight in the building next door, turns out it was just all the doors being smashed in and a well-known criminal being arrested by the child exploitation squad! Does anyone in Auckland have a spare room?
