In this dispatch, Steve ‘Snoopman’ Edwards proves the NZ Police breached the peace on Tuesday morning February 22 2022, on the streets adjacent to New Zealand Parliament Grounds to bait the protesters. The police objective was to produce scenes of violence, with the confidence that the mainstream media would not bother to accurately report the clustered events.
With images taken from his camera — as well as an appraisal of news-gathering footage and some independent media footage — The Snoopman unpacks the propaganda and demonstrates that Assistance Police Commissioner Richard Chambers emotionally hijacked news audiences when he claimed the actions of protesters were “disgraceful”.

This action further agitated the protesters.
