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.
