Let the dog squad do some training in these ferals

Seriously, I believe it is a valid option, and the dog squad needs some training.

Police say they may “go and say hello” to boy racers planning a protest outside the Christchurch central police station tonight.

The protest has been organised through a boy racer Facebook page, which features photos of T-shirts with the letters FTP on the back.

It invites members to the “peaceful park-up” outside the St Asaph St station at 11pm.

The idea is “to show that we will not tolerate the misapropriation (sic) of police powers and their complete misconduct towards boyracers and those of us out to have a goodtime [sic],” the page administrator wrote. 

He instructs boy racers to come only in cars with current registrations and warrants of fitness, and not to bring open alcoholic vessels – “then they can do us for absolutely nothing”.

Ironically, that drew no argument from police yesterday.

“If you’re not offending, you won’t be dealt with by police,” said Canterbury road policing manager, Inspector Al Stewart.

“Anyone can protest. As long as the assembly is peaceful, they’ll be fine.”

Stewart said no additional staff would be placed on duty because of the protest.
