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.
