What are we not being told? If this is true, and I have no reason to believe it is not, then the cops have given in and the loser who caused the dreadful deaths and injury in Christchurch has won.
One has to ask, who is directing our police to take such actions. Surely they wouldn’t be doing this off their own back. Are they acting on orders from our politicians?
If it is a lack of police on the ground, I am sure they can find plenty of police busy gathering fines off the driving public, who would fill the breach at such an important ceremony as ANZAC day.
