NZ's new security law
The “new security law” is presumably the Search and Surveillance Act 2012, which provides for “warrantless entry to prevent offence or respond to risk to life or safety” — which means, as far as I can see, that the police can break into your house whenever they like. (See Part 2, Subpart 4.) The legislation also provides for “entry without warrant to find and avoid loss of evidential material relating to certain offences”. The cartoon is from the Manawatu Standard of October 2, 2012. The cartoonist is Malcolm Evans.
