This sort of bill is what I have warned many in New Zealand about previously, so to see one such as this come to fruition, is both vindicating yet worrying. The ability to remotely search will be abused - I don't trust the government nor police more than they trust me. I guess somewhere along the line they forgot we were free human beings, not numbers and criminals by default.
For the first time ever I heard the free to air, mainstream media channel 'tv3' use the words: 'police state' in reference to the search bill. I was shocked! I had just said those exact words three seconds prior to my mother, whom looked at me rather puzzled.

Myself and many others will be speaking out against this bill in 'cveitch youtube style', also addressing the proposed 200% plus acc price rises for motorcyclists, using fudged figures and released two days ago. Coincidental timing for both issues?
