    Tony Abbott

    Didn't Tony Abbott make a statement yesterday about how if we changed our behavior the terrorists had won?

    I thought I saw something about that on the news last night.

    Re: Already covered? (as Chris)

    New Zealand copyright law already contains a clause that's says that breaking DRM that is in place for geoblocking, is NOT an offense.

    Real Plots (as Chris)

    If the FBI is so good at foiling these plots, why didn't the foil the "Joker" gunman and why didn't the CIA/FBI notice anything going on that caused the US Ambassador to be killed?

    Seems like they're picking the low lying apples!

    Of course, if the US stopped being hypocritical and brassing off half the world, it might help as well!

    Sounds familiar! (as Chris)

    Back in the late 1980s, the French Government thought they could enter NZ, commit an act of terrorism (the Rainbow Warrior) and get out without the NZ police being able to do anything! The NZ police did solve the case, arrested two agents and issued international arrest warrents for the remainder!

    Now the US government thinks they can run roughshod over NZ law, like they do to everyone else, in their "do as I say, not as I do" hypocritical attitude! This time, the NZ Judiciary is proving that they will stand up to the rule of law, unfortunately, the police have become enthralled by the stories from the US authorities!

    Good to see the US being shown that their laws don't apply all over the world (how many US citizens think their constitution covers them outside the US anyway?)!
