Fletch The Terror Squad Evidence?

The Dominion Post and another newspaper have obtained details of the 156-page affidavit presented by police to Manukau District Court and published some details of it.

To my mind it makes for pretty scary reading, what with the talk of killing people and blowing things up, etc, etc. Am I right in understanding that none of this evidence can be used, now that the people detained aren't being prosecuted under the Terrorism Act?"Get someone to assassinate the prime minister, the new one, next year's one. Just been in office five days, bang ... Yeah, John Key ... just drop a bomb ... Just wait till he visits somewhere and just blow them ... They won't even find you." - Alleged bugged conversation

And what do New Zealanders think about it all?
I think that the phone-in poll the other night on Close Up was pretty telling. There was something like 21,000 people who had rung in; 87% of which agreed that the Police had done the right thing.

All a bit strange and scary for our little Nation.

I've borrowed your quote Fletch - thanks! I just couldn't resist doing a post called "Performance Art" after that little gem.

It's the sights and sounds of a whole flock of chickens coming home to roost.
