How does a person being detained in a facility have a firearm? Did he keister it?


Christ knows.

But you won't be the only one asking that question, and some people had better be prepared with their answers.

Some are saying the arresting officer found ammunition on him when he was searched. You'd have thought that would have led to a very thorough search for the accompanying firearm. But apparently not.

Looks like something has gone seriously wrong in the lead up to the incident. Not sure how you would be able to reach a weapon and fire it accurately with your hands handcuffed behind your back.

The Met confirmed he was handcuffed with his hands behind his back and had been taken to the custody centre in a police vehicle, before being escorted into the building.

The shots were fired as officers prepared to search the suspect, who was still handcuffed, with a metal detector, the IOPC said.

Quite the difference in justified outrage between US and UK cop shootings sadly. Thankfully they are so rare in the UK.

Just read Matt Ratana was shot dead in England, I remember him from my High school he was two years ahead of me and in the top rugby team, he was a police officer gunned down in the police station i believe.

Not a mate but certainly remember him actually like yesterday, he was a big lad I was the smallest at school for my age always until a huge growth spurt in my last years, he was no bully though not that I got bullied I was a boxing champ,good rugby player and one of those peeps you remember of course the name helped.
There is a Maori PA and settlement named Ratana between Palmerston NTh and Whanganui, it is also a religion The Ratana church and religion was founded there. Great place

By all accounts he was a great bloke and very popular among his friends and colleagues.

Over 30 years as a serving Police officer. Such a shame.

What area was he from VCC? The article I just read says Hawkes Bay / Napier and I’ve got relatives on my mothers side, her sister who lived there for years until recently moving a bit further west.

Small world that you knew of him. Real shame.

That was horrendous. The shooter must have bided his time until he was in the nick and they had his cuffs off. Hindsight and all that but why tf wasnt he searched before then?

Cowardly act in any case. "Big man" who likes to carry a gun but cant face jail time when hes caught with it.

I don't think the name and shame stuff works with someone who obviously has a screw loose / death wish.

There is zero benefit for anyone who's sane to shoot a cop when your already nicked in cuffs and in the police station, no escape and you just went from possession to murder.

That's a 10-15 year difference in jail time ffs.

Guys obviously fked in the head.
