New Zealand First’s Darroch Ball currently has a Bill at select committee which will bring much heavier punishments for those who assault our first responders and corrections officers. The Bill proposes a new charge of ‘injuring a first responder’ and also ensures a minimum mandatory sentence of six months in prison.
Who do you think should be included under the proposed Bill? Do you think six months in prison is too harsh? Not harsh enough?
Take our survey and let us know what you think.
