A few isolated incidents or part of an alarming pattern? It’s time we found out. In the Dotcom case, not only have our law enforcement agencies cut corners – or worse – in their excitement at being part of Uncle Sam’s world police team, in so doing they have broken New Zealand laws designed to protect the rights of the people they’ve sworn to uphold.
They’ve also broken our trust. That’s earned them medals from the FBI. We can’t leave it at that.
FBI, also bowing to demands, from US film studios.
