Two things can be derived from this story.
1. Don't run from police, always makes it worse (unless you escape).
2. NZ is very bad at policing there own police. Forget comparisons to other countries. Standards are standards. Even when there are witnesses to police brutality, the police still seem to get away with breaking the law themselves because they are where the law stops.
Simple solution. Don't break the law, because in general, you can't trust the police to stick to the law when they arrest you. Remember, its a job for them. More arrests means more brownie points.

We could do with our police armed and authorised to shoot those fleeing police. A law like that would reduce those fleeing police and improve public saftey generally. Then in this instance they could have shot Shane, and we wouldn't have any complaints about any fence, and the public would be safer with one less idiot with a vehicle putting everyones lives in danger.If Shane was stuppid enough to flee over an electric fence at night, and not take enough care with a police escort, I say hard luck crim. Next we will have calls for electric fences to be banned for the danger they impose to fleeing crims! Shane was illegally tresspassing when he jumped the fence intially, he was fleeing police, and before that he was speeding. They should lock him and his wheel chair up and throw away the key.

also there wer no civillian witnesses anywhere near the fence at time of accident (have spoken to people that wer at the house), it was pitch black (night time), the only "eye witnesses" wer police and shane, the police wouldnt even let a lady who works for the whangarei hosp anywer near him to see if his injuries required urgent medical care ( which they did) so why did they leave him lyeing on the ground for nearly an hour before even calling an ambulance...getting there fabricated tale right i guess???

What if he wasn't caught and crashed into a family that night? Your family? I'm relieved the police are getting these people off the road. Unfortunate that this is how it ended but like I said at the beginning, what if he wasn't caught...
