Only in New Zealand would you have armed police who can’t actually access their guns because they’re locked in the car and someone forgot the key… Utterly disgraceful, especially when the police lied about it afterwards to cover it up, and this could have directly contributed to Navtej Singh’s death.
Why were they locked in the car in the first place? If the police are going to have guns, they may as well be actually carrying them, if you’re challenged by an armed crook they won’t wait for you to fumble for the keys before shooting you.
The police can’t protect you from armed offenders. But just try defending yourself and you better look out, they’ll be down on you like a ton of bricks.
