GPS catches crim – he gets tasered – job done

When GPS tracking for paedos and violent crims was introduced last year the liberal panty-waists made the usual noises about human rights for offenders. (I think they are lucky not to be strung up)

Now GPS has helped the cops track down exactly where a crim was before he had the chance to kill or injure someone.

It’s thought to be the briefest prison release in New Zealand history: a dangerous criminal was arrested only three hours after he walked free from jail.

Maximum security prisoner George Whichman, 23, who has affiliations with the Killer Beez gang, was Tasered by police after he breached his release conditions in South Auckland about 12.30pm last Wednesday.

Only three hours earlier he had been freed from Auckland Prison. He was fitted with a GPS bracelet to monitor his movements and ensure public safety.

He was tracked by Corrections Department staff, who called police when he travelled south of a defined boundary. He was arrested at a home in Manurewa.

Whichman faced four charges of breaching his release conditions when he appeared in Waitakere District Court after the incident. He was remanded in custody to appear again next week, when it is expected he will apply for bail.

The icing on the cake was a nice little tasering.

So GPS did its job. And the human rights of the public were protected.

    The Killer Bee got stung…boom boom.

      Killer Bee is back ouside – effecitve cost to him: Zero.

      and no, no “boom boom” or anything like that.

    Very nice. But some soft cock judge will just give him a slap on the wrist and let him out again. Nothing changes.

  • I have no problem with what happened to a fellow who seems to be a nasty piece of work and was too dumb to comply with release conditions mere hours after he would have had them explained to him as the device was attached.
    But “south of a defined boundary” seems to me a bizarre condition. You’d want to keep offenders away from the homes of former victims, prosecution witnesses et al. If they had a drink problem you might ban them from licensed premises etc. But saying “stay within a x kilometre radius of this point” seems just to be saying “commit your future offences HERE, not THERE”. Bad luck for those living in the “defined area” as it increases their chances of being victimised.
    If you’re fitted with a GPS device in Northland the cops in Southland can still nab you if you play up down there, so what’s the point?
    The story gives no clue as to the reason for the condition, as usual leaving obvious questions unanswered.

    Why did they free him? That is the question.

    Why do we insist on releasing these arseholes who will just commit crime against all of us as soon as they are out?

    If we kept them in jail longer, we wouldn’t have the massive expense of all this extra surveillance and judge/lawyer fees.

      Why a taser? Why not a full on dose of lead poisoning?

    • StupidDisqus

      we wouldn’t have the massive expense of all this extra surveillance and judge/lawyer fees.

      we’d have the even more massive expense of keeping ’em inside!

      • Tristanb

        That’s where I disagree with the judges and the lefties who state this.

        Prison doesn’t need to be so expensive. And we pay for the dole, for the insurance costs, for the unwanted and abused children, for the ruined lives when they are let out early.

    “He was remanded in custody to appear again next week, when it is expected he will apply for bail.”

    And Judge Neave will no doubt grant him bail…

  • BR

    There’s nothing wrong with this crim that a Singaporean style beating wouldn’t cure.

    Bill.

    • StupidDisqus

      really? only one sure cure for being a crim or a commie.

  • StupidDisqus

    He was remanded in custody to appear again next week, when it is expected he will apply for bail.

    Zapp goes the taser! Ka Ching! go the courts courts. Ka Ching! Lawyers. Ka CHING! Judges, KA CHING! Bed and board…

    or, alternatively: Bang goes the Glock. The rest is silence.
