Police now won’t arrest you if it will cause tension

Stuff reports:

Enforcing alert level 2 restrictions at the Black Lives Matter marches could have caused tension in an otherwise peaceful protest, says one of New Zealand’s top cops.

Oh my Goodness. If you enforce the law it might cause tension, so instead we let people break the law.

Schwalger said the police’s role is to ensure safety and uphold the law while recognising the lawful right to protest.

The trouble is it was an unlawful protest. Personally I think the protest should have been lawful, but the Government has kept us at Level 2, which meant the protest was unlawful.
