Dear Leader says it is so. All peasants now rejoice!
So this is clearly a typing error of some kind, a really long, highly detailed, file recorded typing error:
Re: Common Assault – File No: 070127/4955
I am writing to you with regard to your report on 24th January 2007, as you were travelling in your vehicle registration No. [DELETED] you were punched in the left jaw by the passenger in vehicle, Registration No. DNU511.
Due to the high number of priority crimes occurring in the Balmoral area in the past several months, I have been unable to assign your complain to an investigator at this stage.
Your complaint will be investigated in due course and an investigator will be in contact with you at that time.
Should you wish to discuss this matter further please do not hesitate to contact me at the Balmoral police station, phone DDI (09) 631-1026
Acting Sargeant MDG874
This is not a case of some guy wandering in, saying: “hey, some unknown guy smacked me in the head”. This complaint – characterised by Acting Sgt. Dalton as a “report” – was backed up with photographic evidence and two witnesses.
Do you want us to go round and arrest the guy ourselves, or what?
No, seriously, at what level do you guys just simply NOT carry out the job, because you’re out of staff? Which I find difficult to reconcile with your former Police Commissioner (the patsy Clark slid in by stitching up Doone) said that he had all the staff he needed… right before the election.
Politics, like comedy, is all about the timing. Only “funny” in a different way.
If you, the New Zealand Police, are quite simply NOT able to protect us, what is our alternative? The Government has clearly created a vacuum that can only be filled by something you don’t want.
I you don’t, wont or can’t protect us, we’ll do it ourselves.
What choice do we have?
oddly enough when we do protect ourselves the cops seem to have resources to SPARE!
