19歳の少年が警察に射殺される

クライストチャーチに住んでいた19歳の少年が震災のためホークスベイの叔父のところに疎開していました。その彼が、今日警察と銃撃戦となり射殺されました。

場所はこの辺り。

警察によると彼はすでに何度も警察と問題を起こしていたようです。今回の射殺では、彼が警察へ発砲したため、その応戦のために警察が銃口を彼に向けたと述べています。

毎晩10:30PMに始まるTVNZニュースでもこの事件はトップで扱われています。

主要紙の記事と、テレビのニュース、目撃者の証言を合わせて考えても、どうしても解せないのは、なぜ彼を射殺しなければならなかったのか、その正当防衛を主張する理由があまりに乏しいことです(現在出されている警察の情報と他の情報が合致しない)。他の国と同様、ニュージーランドにおいても警察が民間人を簡単に射殺する権利は持っていません。

現在のメディアは警察を擁護する報道をしていますが、まだ全部の情報が検証されているようには思えません。ニュースではIPCAが調査を開始すると述べていたので、もう少し様子をみたいと思います。覚書まで。

WITNESSES SCARED

Kahi Hanara, who lives near the school in Taihape Rd, said the shots sounded like they came from a machine gun.

"There were about seven, all straight after each other," he said.

"We thought it was a machine gun, like an AK47, you know like you see on TV - that's why we were so surprised this morning when we heard it was a handgun."

Hanara said the shots sounded like they all came from the same gun.

Taihape Rd resident Ngaire Hanara said she felt scared for her grandson and hurried the family inside and locked the doors.

"At first we heard the siren and then a couple of minutes after that we heard 'bang, bang, bang'," she said.

"We all ran out onto the verandah - we are only a section away from where it was, next to the school.

"We could see the body and the shoes... they're still there. And the sheet where the body was lying and the blood that's still there too...

"I felt scared because we had our little grandson here with us. So we went in and locked the house."

A man staying at the Farmhouse Lodge in Fernhill said he woke to hear sirens and several "bangs" just before 2am.

"We knew something was going on so we just kept our heads down," said the man who did not want to be named.

The backpackers hostel is about 800 metres from where police cordons are in place.

An elderly man, who lives about 40m away from the scene of the shooting, said he heard several "pops" in rapid succession.

The man, who also did not want to give his name, said he was already awake when he heard the shots but was too scared to go outside.
