Police Fail In Harawira Arrest?

From the tipline – 


I draw you to this failure of policing in New Zealand.

“They started waving at me so I just turned up my radio and listened to some music,” Harawira said, “and then next thing you know they pop the back window and pulled me out.”

Police said they used a “glass entry device” from a tow truck to get in to Harawira’s car and pull him out and arrest him.

You mean the Police had to BORROW a “glass entry device”?  Why didn’t they just use a baton and smash the window on the prick?


Good point.  Although Harawira contradicts himself on the “pop”

“I parked my car in front of a truck and shone my light up high on the woman on the roof,” Harawira said.

“I stayed in my car. They broke into my car and smashed at least one window and arrested me.”


Another inquiry is required here and Russel Norman is the man to ask for it.  Did the Police smash the window, and if not, why not?

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.
