    Yup, good outcome to a scary situation.

    Big ups to all the folks in blue out in the rural areas. Doing that kind of work, often on your own, takes a special kind of courage.

    So they will start screaming arm the cops again.
    "Griffin had gone to arrest a 19-year-old, who was wanted on outstanding warrants, shortly before 6pm on Friday" So why would he go sole on a job like that? (Cause he had a gun so thought he was good....)
    Sounds much more like a major procedure change is needed.

    Yep this could well have ended in a dead cop and a pistol in the hands of a criminal.

    If the cop had the gun out and the guy went to attack he could always shoot. I dont think any cop wants to kill another man but it hes outlaw and attacking...

    Didn't the stuff article say he was the only cop on shift...? (Again, I'd hate to be the one person on! Scary!)

    Hindsight is a great thing huh. I'm sure the man thought he could handle it. The time it look to explain the situation in that interview would be ten fold the time the actual event took place. That's scary though, OC spray not taking effect...that 19yo would have been wild to brush it off and keep attacking. Not a nice thought.

    Toby, its been proven over and over again that if someone is within 7m of a person with a holstered pistol, and rushes them, you do not have enough time to draw and shoot. Think about that for a minute, and match that to the typical style of policing in NZ. I've seen this first hand and trained for it, even against someone who has skills, experience AND is aware that you are about to rush them, you can still get to them with a knife / club ...

    And much past 7 metres the accuracy is terrible as shown by the high fail rate of NZ police accuracy tests.

    This is a procedure thing pure and simple, in fact OSH should be stepping in and fining the police for procedure fails.

    Wirehair whats your point about thinking he was good? Your comment appears to me to be derogatory toward our police.
    Griff is a sole charge officer whos next nearest station is about 60km away in Ototrohanga. He has done a great job of cleaning up numerous peices of shit like these in the past, so it would have started as a routine operation for him. He didn't go around to their place to bust them there. If that was the case he would most likely have taken backup. They were on the wharf so he would have had to take advantage of the opportunty available. To wait for backup from the nearest available source(which the media stated was Cambridge, about 100 km away) would have meant the offenders would have vacated the area by the time backup arrived. And then these peices of shit work out that policing is actually an hour away and start using that to their advantage. I presume most sole charge officers around NZ would have acted exactly the same as Griff did.

    Positive thoughts going out to Griff, and wishes of a speedy recovery.
