Rant or rave – have your say

Guilty as charged

Your front page ar­ti­cle about some good com­ing from Mr Sch­wa­gler’s home de­ten­tion was a dis­ap­point­ing read. It’s great that he put the time to good use, but to se­ri­ously wa­ter down his guilt for the sake of a good news story by say­ing he suc­cumbed (read sold drugs) to an un­der­cover cop is a non­sense. He chose to make the sale and com­mit the crime. It’s a le­git­i­mate po­lice tac­tic to iden­tify the deal­ers who are sell­ing drugs to our kids and grand­kids. And then to sug­gest he only ad­mit­ted his guilt be­cause he had run out of money to de­fend them is also a non­sense. Last time I looked we had le­gal aid in NZ.
