    Protecting his sister from a group of asians who apparantly play karoake every night until 3.00 am and threatened her for telling them to turn it down.

    If you lived next door to someone who sang karoake until 3.00 in the morning you would want to bash them as well.

    If the brother dies then there is going to be retribution big time fro the maoris.

    What did Pritchard do that was wrong apart from coming to his sisters aid- I would do the same thing if my sister rang me and I would be bringing a crew with me just as they did....from all accounts it looks as the the Karoake Kings next door are to blame.

    Im sure they were both stabbed after asking politley to stop the rucus.

    Honestly, you think he didn't have any part in it at all, innocent bystander im sure.

    IMO, in his situation he's asking for trouble, theres better ways then dealing with it yourself. And, for that reason these 'men' need to sharpen up a little.

    If your sister had a knife held at her throat and the brother in law told that he would be shot in the leg just for fun that constitues asault and a lot of people would grab a tyre lever and wack the people that did that as well.

    Don't believe that the karoake boys were innocent bystanders.

    They are supposed to but they now are so politised by the current labor government that they are not able to do their job properly.

    Read the following article from the SMH today to revel part of the problem. The cops today are more interested in working their 4 12 hour shifts without any isues or complaints and then going to do their "second" job.


    Shut up or face attack: top cop's claim
    February 21, 2007

    ONE of the state's most senior commanders has accused the police union of threatening him with a "personal attack" to stop him criticising the controversial 12-hour rostering system before the state election.

    In a defiant letter sent to fellow officers yesterday, Superintendent Mick Plotecki said he had been officially gagged and that the Police Association had been able to censor and misrepresent the debate "safe in the knowledge that I have been instructed not to make public comment on the corporate issues of rostering".

    "On the afternoon of 25 January I was subject to an overt threat by an employee of the Police Association with regard to my stance on the block rostering issue. The threat was very plain - that if I did not retract my claim that the introduction of such roster practices had cost this state approximately 800 police positions, then I would be subject to personal attack by the association," he wrote.

    "That the association is now prepared to use threats in order to progress its agenda to cement block rosters into place ahead of the election and the auditor's finding … should be of concern to government, the executive, the taxpayers of NSW and to all police."

    The Police Association is working behind the scenes to hammer out a pre-election deal with the Government to entrench the 12-hour rostering regime, which is not used in any other state.

    Block rosters are extremely popular with frontline police, who can work just 19 to 21 days in each six-week block. Senior NSW police commanders argue there is now an entire generation of young officers who have worked only under a system that lets them have two jobs. It has also made it increasingly difficult for specialist squads such as the detectives - who still work traditional eight-hour shifts - to attract recruits.

    Both the Government and the Coalition have avoided tackling the rostering issue to ensure they do not antagonise the police union. The Premier, Morris Iemma, and the Opposition Leader, Peter Debnam, have both promised to raise police numbers.

    Yesterday, the office of the Police Minister, John Watkins, said he was negotiating on rosters with police and a decision would be announced before the election.

    Superintendent Plotecki, a veteran homicide investigator who heads the big Liverpool command, sparked a statewide debate about rosters last year when he told the Herald the so-called block rosters - which allow uniformed officers to work four consecutive 12-hour shifts followed by up to six days off - eroded the force's ability to "serve the public effectively", benefited officers who moonlighted in second jobs and reduced commanders' ability to match staff numbers to the workload.

    In an article offered originally to the union newsletter - but not published - Superintendent Plotecki argued the traditional eight-hour rosters could free the equivalent of 800 police positions. He wrote: "There is a limit to public goodwill. It is unrealistic to believe that we can continually make demands upon the public purse for further police numbers without demonstrating a commitment to the more effective use of the personnel we already have."

    Yesterday, Superintendent Plotecki wrote that he had not intended his criticism to appear during the election campaign. "My original article on block rosters was written and submitted over 12 months ago (it took some months of lobbying before the article was published). Since that time, the association has largely ignored the issue."

    The president of the Police Association, Bob Pritchard, confirmed late yesterday that the union would be "asking for commitments to continue flexible rostering" but that this did not have to be 12 hours. "It depends on what suits the local command."

    Last month, the Police Commissioner, Ken Moroney, said he was prepared to have a "sensible debate" on rostering in the wake of revelations that widespread moonlighting inside the water police had been taken up by the Police Integrity Commission.

    But Superintendent Plotecki says the guidelines for the roster agreement, signed by the union, indicate that police should not work more than three consecutive 12-hour shifts. He said this had been ignored to pursue the pattern of rigid four-day blocks.

    Superintendent Plotecki wrote that NSW should experiment with a range of rostering patterns and that the only criterion should be a balance of safety issues with lifestyle, public expectations and operational requirements.

    Victorian police recently won a case against their association in the Industrial Relations Commission by arguing 12-hour night shifts were a health and safety risk.
