The judge goes too far
There is a view Justice Lowell Goddard has overstepped the mark in her job as chairwoman of the Independent Police Conduct Authority. The time for the High Court judge to step back is overdue. Is Justice Goddard on a personal crusade to minutely control the police, rather than inquire fairly into legitimate complaints about aspects of police conduct? This might be the perception after her recent summons of senior police officers to her office for a “please explain” over police pursuit policies.
