A Recent Case
Just been reading a file involving a person who was holding a rifle when he was shot by Police. What interested me was that after he was shot, the ESR were told by Police to only investigate the position the officer was in when he fired his glock, not to investigate where the defendant was when he was shot i.e not to analyse the scene in terms of blood splatter & drops to give an indication of body position pre shot. No wonder if this is the norm then we have seen no cases of wrongful shooting by Police in NZ.
