Police darvo on steroids

The police are very politely begging Eli Rubashkyn to turn himself in for a friendly chat, because they just really really don’t want to arrest him.

Police are investigating “alleged offending” at an anti-transgender event in Auckland over the weekend, after supporters and counter protesters clashed.

Of course, as always, “an anti-transgender event” is inaccurate and highly inflammatory.

Thousands gathered at the Albert Park rotunda on Saturday to protest British activist Kellie-Jay Keen-Minshull’s Let Women Speak event.

That’s much more accurate. Thousands gathered to scream DO NOT LET WOMEN SPEAK.

About 150-200 people turned out in support of Keen-Minshull, who goes by Posie Parker, but they were drowned out by close to 2000 people rallying in support of trans rights.

Inaccurate again. Close to 2000 people rallied in support of trans takeover and dominance and silencing of women.

So then, they grudgingly admit, someone threw tomato juice on Keen-Minshull.

Counter protestor, Eli Rubashkyn, said she’s been told by police that it’s likely they will apply for a warrant to arrest them on Wednesday.

The reporter got lost in the pronouns there – Rubashkyn is both she and them. Funny how StuffNZ call Rubashkyn “counter protester” as opposed to attacker or assaulter or misogynist bully. But don’t worry, it gets worse.

Rubashkyn said she has been receiving “constant” death threats following the protest and calls for her deportation.

That is, receiving “constant” death threats and calls for deportation.

Police asked Rubashkyn to contact them about “fronting the matter”.

Asked. Not told, but asked – as if it were a favor. He assaulted a woman on camera and has been bragging about it ever since, and they asked him to drop by for a talk.

“The situation is likely to escalate unnecessarily if you become the subject of an arrest warrant,” a communication to her said.

In another message, police said: “This matter needs to be dealt with soon to remain low key. If we don’t get any traction, police may have no option but to issue a warrant for your arrest.”

And that would never do. He must be treated with the utmost courtesy and affection, because he is MOST OPPRESSED.

“We don’t need to make this a big deal, we just need to get it done. Please reach out to me.”

We don’t need to make this a big deal. It was just some bitch you threw tomato juice on, it’s no biggy, all we want to do is have a conversation so that we can tell the public you did nothing wrong.

In a statement, police said they made “several attempts” on Tuesday and Wednesday “to locate a person of interest in relation to a publicised assault at Albert Park on Saturday.

“That person is aware that police would like to locate and talk to them about the incident, and ask them to come forward so the matter can be dealt with appropriately.

“There is currently no warrant to arrest this person.”
