Top Cop Spits The Dummy

It seems that the cops in Hawke’s Bay are more out of control than we have previously reported and it doesn’t stop at Inspector Tania Kura it goes over her head.

Superintendent Sam Hoyle reached an all-time low in childish behaviour by serving a trespass notice on a Hawke’s Bay man who is in the process of bringing civil proceedings against police.  That document effectively prevents him from serving documents on police in the course of properly brought legal proceedings.

Here is yet another abuse of police powers in Hawke’s Bay that is sanctioned from the man at the top himself.Holye is clearly unhappy that his carefully crafted  image  is dented when faced with court proceedings that could ultimately demonstrate just how inept a manager he really is.

It is not all that long ago that as a young police officer Hoyle was spending his days tearing up and down the beaches of Northland in a police vehicle under the guise of respectable policing, we are told it was actually nothing more than a boy racer mentality and later boasting to family and friends about his activities.

Even more recently he left Wanganui where he was Area Commander, after indulging himself in an affair that was the ultimate betrayal of both wife and family.  In what is perhaps an interesting coincidence, Tania Kura spent part of her career in Wanganui.  We can only but speculate on why she ended up working under Hoyle in Hawke’s Bay.

Numerous attempts have been made to contact Sam Hoyle who would not respond to emails or phone calls so we turned to Police Commissioner Marshall for comment but still nothing.

It would seem police are remaining tight lipped about Hoyle’s dummy spitting or their attempts to obstruct justice by way of making it difficult for a man to serve legal documents on police because quite simply they have no justification for those games.

Hawke’s Bay Top Cop Jumping Ship

In the wake of blistering media criticisim of Napier/Hastings district commander Inspector Tania Kura, her boss Eastland District Commander Superintendent Sam Hoyle is looking to jump ship.

DomPost reporter Tracey Chatterton published this article on the problems and internal squabbles going on under Kura’s management:  http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/9166764/Cops-are-leaving-the-Bay-in-droves

Just days later Kura’s boss and mentor Superintendent Sam Hoyle is looking to quit town.  This week Hoyle is in Wellington interviewing for a new job as Wellington District Commander.

When you look at history and see how police reward their under-performing or wayward staff, there is a good chance Hoyle may soon be packing his bags and moving closer to the bosom of Commissioner Peter Marshall.

So with Hoyle joining those leaving in droves let’s just hope for the sake of the people of Hawke’s Bay that they do not promote Kura to Hoyle’s old job.

Superintendent Hoyle declined to comment when invited to do so.
