I don’t believe I have just read this; please just let NZ drop off the bottom of the planet — save us the embarrassment.

“In recent time we had a recruit (NZ Police Recruit) being taught by a consultant, literally, how to write letters of the alphabet by drawing within bubble letters in the same style as a five-year-old.”

With comment from the girl’s brigade (Annette King, Lyn Provost, Greg O’Connor)


  1. And police wonder why people hate them as they have the integrity of a sewer rat .This country is run by corrupt police like Rob Pope and Howard Broad who sit in Wellington and take orders via Helen Klark . The public view police with scepticism, confusion and distrust and who can blame them !!

  2. Very strange Bevan, I bet things were different when you were in the police force. lol
    Here’s one for you.
    When I phone the police on Friday to enquire about DV policy, i was transferred to Waitakere’s Senior Seargent. She told me she knows nothing about these policies and that she just waits for something to come down in writing from above. Now, I am being my charming self trying to get somewhere because I know COPS can be cocky, (no dig at you, although I may have said the same when you were in, lol) so I change the subject to expalin what I am looking for to the ‘No Smacking Bill.” You know it was being implemented that very day. Well, she knew nothing about it. So I remind her that it has been on the news and is available on many news sites etc. Still she knows nothing. Infact she tells me she doesn’t watch the news or read the papers. She doesn’t agree with media. (fair enough, I have a problem with media also) But this is starting to look quite bad. What does she know? Turns out she knows how to be PC and follow orders. What is frightening is that the orders she passes down to the staff under her is her own personal perception of what is being handed down to her. I am amazed that she doesn’t care about what is going on in society.

  3. Apparently our dear sweet Senior Seargent of Waitakere was on Prime TV Saturday night and apparently she is fair (understanding of criminals suffering) and NICE enough to let us off even on TV. And apparently she has a twin sister.

    Damn, what a good time to be a criminal and Damn, I am straight. lol
