Anyone who thinks we don’t live in a police state ought to take a look at the most recent RNZ headline. If the report is to be believed, a little old lady well into her 70s was raided by police who had a warrant for her helium balloon kit! The suggestion is that they are on a rampage of intimidation because of the current euthanasia debate.
No wonder they don’t have time to attend burglaries or patrol the streets. It almost feels like I am back in America!
