Dotcom sues (23 Jan, 2018)

This column is archived at: https://aardvark.co.nz/daily/2018/0123.shtml

Should Dotcom be compensated for the crimes committed against him by various agencies of the New Zealand government?

Why the hell has nobody been punished for committing these crimes in the first place?

Have we (ie: the government and its agencies) learned any lessons (apart from "no worries, we won't get punished") as a result of this ridiculous travesty?

Are we really just puppets of large US corporations -- as would very much appear to be the case throughout the Dotcom saga?

Why not save taxpayers even more money and simply give Mr Dotcom an ex-gratia payment instead of wasting more money and tying up the courts with law suits?

it was always going to happen
i would have preferred the us govt was cited as co defendant though

i also believe that the immunities enjoyed by our snivel service should be rescinded and both civil and criminal accountability for their actions instituted

Personally, I feel he should be handed over to the Americans. He has cost me enough of my hard earned taxes but lives in the lap of luxury (and knows how to work the 'system' to his benefit)!

Ok, so the cops stuffed up their raid etc, etc ......... but we had been over the scenario 'ad nauseum' and it is time to say 'enough is enough'! Give him a free 1st Class ticket to fly one-way to the USA and let nature take its course.

If Kim wins, history will remember the Jacinda government losing a major battle against him, but will likely forget or rose tint the role the Key government played in this fiasco.

Looks like the US government outsources their "climate controlled" storage to the lowest bidder. Will they ever learn?

"Hey boss, that room where we're storing Dotcom's gear has experienced a sudden change in climate"

"Rubbish, there's no such thing as climate change, get back to work"
