The Urewera Four were a subject I'd avoided commenting on until the trial was complete. The verdicts were as I expected, my hope is that the sentencing judge will have the sense not to impose custodial sentences, or preferably, the police do not seek custodial sentences.
Come the first weekend of May there will be plenty of dickheads wandering about with firearms and bottles full of flamable liquids, shooting off their weapons and grumbling to each other about how awful the government is. They are called "farmers" and the occasion is the opening of duck hunting season, so the Police might not be that interested. But frame it the right way and they sound a bit like terrorists.
