I just heard a ‘breaking news story’ on TV.. Police have raided several addresses around Auckland & arrested about a dozen people. The news item closed with the old familiar ‘a quantity of cannabis was seized at the scene(s)’ (no amounts were mentioned ?).
I remember, back in the 1970s (my youth) when nearly every arrest, mentioned on the news.. ended with ‘a quantity of cannabis (or illegal drugs) were found/seized at the scene’.. as if all ‘crims’ were also ‘druggies’ (or was it vice versa ?)
The more I hear these ‘breaking news stories’ the more I believe that the ‘war on drugs’ (esp. cannabis) is the MAIN priority of NZ Police !
Do they even focus on any other ‘REAL Crime’ ? 😦
