An investigation into methamphetamine dealing in Porirua has resulted in the police seizing $137,000 cash and $160,000 of drugs (160g of P - an absolute shitload of the stuff). This was done with existing powers, without needing to stack the deck by lowering the standards of evidence or reversing the burden of proof. All the police had to do was a bit of work for a change.
So, why do we need the Criminal Proceeds (Recovery) Bill again? So the police can engage in lazy policing rather than doing their fucking jobs properly?
