Exam question of the day: The police

Today’s question was prepared by the Tumeke blog and asks:

Do we really want a Police force that turns up on your doorstep at night and asks how you intend to plea in a case while threatening more charges if you plead innocent?

Do we?


  1. No, we wouldn't want that. Such behaviour could be dealt with under S116 of the Crimes Act (Conspiring to defeat justice) I would have thought, if there was proof and a will. Unless, are the police above the law now?

    The 'Return of the walking city' on the Auckland Transport blog reminds me of one of my favorite online videos of the good old days before big govvernment:
