Rotorua area commander Inspector Horne sticks to his guns: The right to use police car as a lethal weapon!
A senior police officer accused of being in a driving incident in his police car could lose his licence, and possibly his job, if he fails to overturn his latest driving infringement notice.
Rotorua area commander Inspector Bruce Horne has reportedly filed a suit to fight his own police force in court, forcing Commissioner Mike Bush to stand him down from “duties.”
In this backward country, we call it freedom of information
Bush refused an interview. And Horne would say only that it was not related to speeding and he still carried a full licence. “It’s an issue between me and some other people and is not public information. I have nothing more to add,” he said on Saturday.
Police have been very reticent to disclose details of the June incident. They refuse to say when it happened, where it happened, what type of driving offence he was accused of, or what other people were involved.
Horne is a hands-on type of guy. In April 2013, he was beaten in the car park of a Wellington supermarket “while five staff and a security guard looked on and smiled.”

“Unfortunately, Spanish Judges have balls!”
Spanish Judge Jose de la Mata has issued an arrest warrant for the Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu over the deadly attack by IDF on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla in 2010 that killed ten people, according to a report.
Crimes against humanity: Mr Netanyahu and six former officials would be arrested if they set foot on Spanish soil.
The Freedom Flotilla aid ship Mavi Marmara, which was trying to bring supplies to Gaza during an an Israeli-imposed blockade, was attacked by Israeli Defense forces (IDF).
Nine activists were killed during the raid that occurred in international waters, about 150km from Gaza, and one more died of wounds a week or so later.
Nine of the Turkish victims were killed with 30 bullets including five who were shot in the head at close-range, autopsies revealed.
Arrest warrants have also been issued for six other Israelis including ex-defense minister Ehud Barak, ex-foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman, ex-deputy prime ministers Moshe Ya’alon and Eli Yishai, former state minister Benny Begin, and Israeli Navy commander (2007-2011) Aluf (Vice Admiral) Eliezer “Eli” Marom.

Tarantino could easily have been describing NZ police’s murder squads
Popular film director Quentin Tarantino said he will not apologize to the police for the frank comment he made earlier despite threats of boycott by police unions.
“What I said was the truth,” he said.
Police unions in Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Orange County, San Jose, New York, New Jersey and Philadelphia have joined in the call to boycott Tarantino’s upcoming film The Hateful Eight.
During the Rise Up protest against police brutality, a thee-day event held in New York City’s Washington Square Park in October, Tarantino told the protestors: “I wanna give my time to the families, however, I do just wanna say, what am I doin’ here? I’m doin’ here, because I am a human being with a conscience. And when I see murder, I cannot stand by, and I have to call the murdered the murdered, and I have to call the murderers the murderers. Now I wanna give my time to the families. Thank you very much.”
“What they’re doing is pretty obvious. Instead of dealing with the incidents of police brutality that those people were bringing up, instead of examining the problem of police brutality in this country, better they single me out. And their message is very clear. It’s to shut me down. It’s to discredit me. It is to intimidate me. It is to shut my mouth, and even more important than that, it is to send a message out to any other prominent person that might feel the need to join that side of the argument,” Tarantino told the LA Times.
“I’m not being intimidated. Frankly, it feels lousy to have a bunch of police mouthpieces call me a cop hater. I’m not a cop hater. That is a misrepresentation. That is slanderous. That is not how I feel. But you know, that’s their choice to do that to me. What can I do? I’m not taking back what I said.”
“What I said was the truth. I’m used to people misrepresenting me; I’m used to being misunderstood. What I’d like to think their attack against me is so vicious that they’re revealing themselves. They’re hiding in plain sight.”
Tarantino could easily have been describing NZ police’s murder squads—the trigger happy thugs who murder unarmed civilians with impunity, and their commanders who absolve the murderers.

Sudden death: a 17-month-old infant dies in Wallacetown
Police refused to say whether the infant was a boy or girl. There will be no further information available while officers were conducting their initial inquiries, they said.
Body in a Rotorua hot pool “unexplained”
Bay of Plenty of Deaths: a tourist reportedly discovered the body of an adult in a hot pool at Rotorua’s Kuirau Park Tuesday afternoon and alerted the police, said Senior Sergeant Karl Konlechner.
Earlier police had said getting the body out of the pool would be very difficult.
However, Rotorua police area commander was uncertain there was even a body in the pool in the first place (!)
“We are yet to confirm that there is a body in the pool, but we are working on that assumption,” a report quoted the Rotorua police area commander Inspector Bruce Horne as saying.
Body recovered from hot pool
In a later bulletin police admitted that the initial rumors were in fact correct and that a body had been recovered from the pool.
“The death is being treated as unexplained at this stage,” police said.
Concern grows for missing Indian student
Another day, another “missing” Indian student
Concern is growing for the welfare of missing Indian student Mandeep Singh, 20, who hasn’t been seen for more than two days.
Mr Singh was last seen at Viaduct Harbour on Sunday morning at around 3am, police said.
“At this stage we have had no sightings of him after he left Burngalow 8 bar at around 3am on Sunday morning and we would ask anyone who may have been in the area at the time and might have seen Mandeep to please contact us on (09) 302 6557,” said Acting Detective Senior Sergeant, Marcia Murray.
“We are keeping an open mind about his disappearance and searches of the area have continued today including a search of the waterways around Viaduct Harbour, Auckland City.
“Mandeep’s family are deeply concerned about his disappearance and our focus remains on trying to find him,” she added.
Mandeep Singh, 20, was last seen by his friends at 3am on Sunday morning after leaving the Bungalow 8 Bar in Viaduct Harbour, Auckland City. He was wearing a blue collared shirt, blue jeans and black and white shoes and is described as slim build, with brown hair and brown eyes and around 5’8″ (170cm) tall.

UNCHARACTERISTICALLY, police treating Jack’s death as suspicious!!
Israel Jack, 20, was found dead on Te Ngae Rd around 4.25am on Sunday, August 18. He was struck by at least two vehicles as he lay prone on the road, police said
He had been seen alive at the Caltex Te Ngae service station five minutes earlier, leaving a question unanswered as to how he covered 1.4km in that time, police said.
The police Defective in charge of the investigation has so far refused to say whether the victim was killed after being hit by vehicles or whether he had died beforehand.
His baseball cap was found on a fence post about 300m from his body and the police have no clue who put it there.
In another version of this story, a baseball “cap thought to belong to Israel Jack has been handed into police nearly three weeks after his death.”
