SOLO-NZ Press Release: Tauranga Police—What Heroes!!

December 1, 2010

The conviction of AC/DC drummer and Tauranga resident Phil Rudd on charges of cannabis possession this morning is testament both to the evil of the cannabis laws and the crass, lumpen stupidity of the Tauranga police, says SOLO Principal Lindsay Perigo.

Perigo, a non-user who detests all forms of headbanging caterwauling, drugged-out or otherwise, but nonetheless would defend to the death the right of its perpetrators to shriek and spew it and their fans' right to subject themselves to it, says New Zealand's international status as a pathetic little authoritarian backwater will be underscored anew by the risible antics of the uniformed goons who went to all the bother of executing a search warrant on Rudd's launch and then arrested him when they found about an ounce of pot on it.

"Such a difficult target! Such alacrity in accomplishing so audacious a mission! What heroes!" Perigo exclaims.

"To this cavalry of clowns must be added the name of the magistrate, Robyn Patterson, who refused a request to discharge Rudd without conviction, saying he had been playing Russian roulette in ignoring the law.

"The law is an ass—and the Tauranga authorities in this instance are pigs," says Perigo.

"A National Government that was true to the principles of individual liberty set out in National's constitution would remove this and all other instances of Prohibitionism from the statute books forthwith, so that preposterous thugs could no longer persecute rock stars or anyone else for the victimless 'crime' of possessing certain substances of their choice. Unfortunately, we know from bitter experience that National's relationship with its principles has long been non-existent, across the board.

"In a world infested by narco-nazi nanny-statists, it is not fascist search warrants that should be being executed," Perigo concludes.

German police seize marijuana Christmas tree

Marcus's picture

"A two-metre (six-foot) marijuana plant decorated as a Christmas tree was confiscated from the home of "an old hippie", who is now facing a drug possession charge, German police said Wednesday.

In a tongue-in-cheek press release titled "All you need is love or how a hippie celebrates Christmas," police in the western city of Koblenz said they discovered the giant plant in the living room of the suspect.

"The two-metre-tall marijuana plant had been put in a Christmas tree stand and decorated with a string of lights," the police said.

"When asked, the hashish fan told the perplexed officers that he had intended to add more decorations to the 'tree' and place the presents under it, according to tradition."

Police seized the plant and another 150 grams (5.3 ounces) of marijuana found in the apartment.

German authorities on Tuesday said that a 21-year-old man in the southern city of Munich had been detained with a homemade Advent calendar with cannabis behind each little door instead of chocolate."

Mum jailed for selling drugs

An emotional plea to a judge by a Ngongotaha solo mother was not enough to keep her out of jail for selling cannabis to undercover police officers.

Renee Anna Polyanszky, 30, was sentenced by Judge Chris McGuire in the Rotorua District Court to one year in prison, but won't start her sentence until February.

Polyanszky had previously pleaded guilty to selling cannabis and possessing the drug for the purpose of sale.

The court was told that on February 25, an undercover police officer went to Polyanszky's home, handed her a $20 note and said he wanted to buy the drug. She sold him a cannabis tinnie that was enough for two cannabis cigarettes. On March 1, another undercover officer went to her home with the same request.

Judge McGuire said Polyanszky agreed to sell the drug to the officer only if he came with a mutual acquaintance, saying she would "go to jail" if caught.

Her lawyer, Harry Edward, said his client denied that statement.

Mr Edward argued for his client to receive home detention.

But Judge McGuire said he doubted that would help rehabilitate Polyanszky given her two previous convictions for cultivating and possessing cannabis.

Standing in the dock, an upset Polyanszky begged for leniency.

"I've learned my lesson your honour, I give you my word, please don't send me to jail," she said.

The judge deferred the sentence after Mr Edward said an appeal would be lodged against it.

California once again had

California once again had it's chance to do something good for once since its (now departing) Governator gave up early in his political career, in form of full cannibis legalization. But once again the western branch of the United Police States known as the People's Republic of California decided to remain consistent with the authoritarian regime in DC and vote anything remotely resembling liberty into the trash heap. Mr. Rudd could have at least had a prescription for it here, though, and maintained roughly a 50/50 chance of being taken into custody (depending on the whims of Nanny Cally's selective enforcement of the mid-1990's prop 215).

Must be a Tauranga thing ...

I just received a note from another professional person in Tauranga who's been arrested for dope possession.

"Preposterous Thugs" and

A complete bunch of wankers. Thank you Linz for showing up these imbeciles in the filthy light they grovel about in.

Robyn Rudd has to be a black belt NAZI. Goodness sake, only last week about 100 people smoked cannibis on the steps of parliament and no charges laid.

By the way, what qualifications does one need to become a magistrate with a big hammer?

My expectation ..

of positive news of PC Plods was soon let down. Haha. Misplaced expectation on my part.

Were it only limited to New

Were it only limited to New Zealand. It's rife in the United Police States of America also: let us not forget poor old Willie Nelson:

A US Border Patrol spokesman says country singer Willie Nelson was charged with marijuana possession after 170g was found aboard his tour bus in Texas.

Between the IRS and this, the poor old bloke just seems to keep getting skinned out by the State (and I bet half the fascists constantly hassling him have his CDs!).

The real offensive aspect is just how patronising Nanny is - the older I get that's the aspect that angers me more and more: I reckon Rudd and Nelson are old and ugly enough by now to be able to make decisions about what they do with their bodies (and when it goes wrong, have the money to pay for the medical bills; well Willie would if it wasn't for the IRS). The first thing we all lost was our privacy, and with it our freedoms.
