PC Wily Coyote

Driver leads police on chase from Nelson to Otago

"Police arrested a 20-year-old man in Waikouaiti, north of Dunedin, shortly after 5pm on Friday. A police dog and handler were involved.
The man appeared in Dunedin District Court on Saturday morning charged with dangerous driving, failure to stop and driving while disqualified. He has been remanded in custody until October 18.
He had allegedly led police on three pursuits over 720km. Officers abandoned each one for safety reasons. 
It is understood the driver broke speed limits in towns and overtook cars including on double yellow lines..."

Police don't have radios anymore? I can't do a 30k trip down SH1 without passing at least a couple of police cars. Or is it the H&S monster...

garbage out, garbage in

Or is that garbage in, garbage out? It doesn't really matter with local body elections.

I'm positive that for the main part, anyone standing for public office should be automatically excluded from it.

There are exceptions to all things, but what I mainly see are those with a particular axe to grind (usually to their own benefit) or the 'Look at ME!' types.

At least the second category does less harm, while they do no good.

One thing particularly bothers me. They rarely declare their political stance- only those where they are known to belong to a political party and cannot hide it seem to declare. I think a trough slurper candidate's voting history should be out in the open.

Sure would affect my voting!

An idea

I have a new idea for making money helping people.

I now offer my services as 'Lotto Winner Coach'.

The idea is I help you keep your winnings by teaching you how to say 'NO!', in an assertive manner.

Much of this saying 'NO!" will be to yourself.

I will also teach you options: DON'T go out for dinner, but Do buy that nice piece of steak.

Don't stick it in that little darling- hire a professional by the hour- much cheaper in the long run.

Reasonable fees, available all hours.

It's been a while

Circumstances have kept me away for most of the year- the squirrel that powered my old mac went lame, battles at work, bring to get a little csh sideline going, as well as a touch of the Black Dog.

My second-hand bookshop is now ticking along. I found a newer Mac, with a couple of squirrels in the power box and will make an effort to do at least an occasional rant in the old style.

So many meatheads- where to start?

Somewhere local, I think.

There is far to much oxygen criminally wasted here on what the media perceives as happening with the US elections.

How about cueing a big Nelson Muntz "HA HA!" for Colin Craig- the scumbags that irreparably defied the name 'Conservative' in NZ?

Not what the thieves expected

"...Couple Katarina Fowler and Jamie Brosnahan returned to their home in Pomona St at 9.30pm on Saturday, only to discover their house had been broken into and two placentas, from children Kyro, 5, and Cee-Jay, 4, missing from the freezer..."

So- some thieving sod is now really regretting the post-burglary fry up!

Karma is working very quick these days...

More than simple murder perhaps?

I have heard that perhaps this was not a random murder. The murdered woman moves in political circles and was known to have made submissions against family court reforms.

To me, that must be investigated as a motive. I bet the cops won't have missed that possibility.

So, that could make this an assassination. A political murder.

Which would account for this case being presented as a random killing. Governments don't like assassination. It's not a big deal killing 'little people' but they don't like the idea that the plebs might get the idea that they can target them.

Watch this space.

The real problem on the roads

"...A long queue of vehicles sitting behind an idiot travelling at 80kph are frustrated, angry and far more likely to make bad overtaking decisions. 

Said idiots speed up at passing lanes and slow down again afterwards, and I see this almost every day. I've seen drivers reach licence-losing speeds to pass these fools, pull in front them and slow down, and even force them to almost a stop to let streams of frustrated drivers go by. Idiots who drive slowly and try and force that on other drivers are in my mind a large part of the reason for road deaths.
Our police refuse to deal with it. All they see is the rash overtaking, the excess speeds, the too-close following distances, because, you know, better too slow than too fast.
This laziness on the part of the police has to stop. They should be focusing on all aspects of driving, but especially on behaviour that frustrates other motorists. Refusal to move over on multi-lane roads; travelling slowly and not allowing others to pass; speeding up at passing lanes; speeding up when others try to pass; failure to indicate intentions..." 


I was in a line following a slack-jawed moron, doing 65k on the open road a few days ago. Totally oblivious to those stuck behind him. Even worse are the assholes who are playing speed vigilante, deliberatly forcing the traffic to slow to a speed THEY consider safe.

I recommend Bastinado- for a first offence.
