WHO CARES?

We've had enough of this incident and it's time we moved on, I reckon.

You'd almost think there was nothing else worthy for our news...

You do live in NZ, it could be worse.....try watching some news about Jade Goody everyday for 2 months, at least your pain only lasts a few days!

He was a druggie and druggies are the worst unbalanced people you can get.

Esp cause they in denial.

never ever trust a druggie to be reaonable

They are addicted and will eventually turn on their mother like a rabid dog if taken far enough

Parky was spot on: the media scrum around Goody highlights all that is paltry & wretched about England these days....cheap chav skank.

Seems Molenaar was just a good old boy who lost it when the old bill turned up. He would gone down for all the pot/weapons/explosives he had. Would have been a hefty lag.

And as far as Jan goes there are places out there you can get help before things get out of hand. There is no excuses for that bullshit and he knew it thats why he turned the gun on himself. What a nutter eh

He just didn't want to grow old

Completely fixated on himself and didn't think about his partner and kids

He would've been thinking about this for a few years now to go that far.

well, when I read about Tim Bickerstaff dying alone in his home,

that was a wake up call.

Very sad way to go for some one so well known and popular.

Check your priorities, count your blessings, then try for more.

Just be ambitious without being a bitch about it.

Let this be a warning to the cops, don't think for one minute, when you put on that uniform you all of a sudden become powerful and indistructable. The biggest problem with the pigs is that they have this arrogant, self important and we are better that you attitude, I wonder what was going through their minds when they were getting shot up,(f........k I thought we were untouchable), hahahahahaha it's only going to get worse

Be careful what you wish for pal. The New Zealand force at present is castrated by political correctness. It can only go on for so long.
Molenaar would not have lasted an hour in the states. Sooner or later, when people kick PC to the curb, then we will see a strong police force with a backbone. When that day comes, my money will be on the boys in blue.

i dont know how else to reach his mum, now....perhaps the pain has eased just a little. this letter is 4 you. i knew your son in school i was a skinny white kid he was this huge fearful god that 4 reasons unbeknown protected me from the 1nz which made my life hell. i have and will not ever forget his mana and the protective mantle he laid, quietly thoughtful only every now andagain answering my questions. i will always be grateful Jan existed thanks 4 having him.
