A woman has been arrested in connection with the drama on an Auckland motorway in which an innocent man was shot dead by the police.

Stephen McDonald faces several charges relating to the motorway drama and a female accomplice who was allegedly driving the first stolen vehicle has appeared in court.

Margaret Mann, 19, has been charged with unlawfully getting into a stolen motor vehicle, failing to stop for police and driving while forbidden.

Police say she was arrested on Friday after a stolen vehicle was dumped in Glen Eden.

[W]hat the internet and its cult of anonymity do is to provide a blanket sort of immunity for anybody who wants to say anything about anybody else, and it would be difficult in this sense to think of a more morally deformed exploitation of the concept of free speech.

While the police from their head down have been fulsome in showing respect to the family of Halatau Naitoko, they've been less forthcoming about details and proceedures that led to the death of an innocent teenager. That hasn't stopped the theorists on the net, across the smoko room, and amongst those with experience in armed response, however. As well, experts we've spoken to over the last few days point to three possible ways the tragedy could have unfolded:

One - Halatau was killed by a police bullet which ricocheted off one of the vehicles.
Two - Police completely missed their real target and Halatau was killed by a stray bullet.
Or, Three - Worrying suggestions police mistakenly identified Halatau as their offender and deliberately shot him.

What all these theories point to is not laying the blame on the officers called out to do their job, but whether the training and the equipment they were given was appropriate. Berny Maubach has been there. He's the former head of the German Anti-Terrorism Squad, and a firearms expert who was called on to give evidence in the Steven Wallace trial. He joins Close Up from Whanganui.
