DOONE DAY AFTERNOON. Coming to a court near you...R. The top cop who lost his job vowed legal revenge on the woman he believed done him wrong. 29 April, 2005.

Reference Number: DCDL-0000799

The scene is like a film poster for the Al Pacino movie 'Dog Day Afternoon' though this poster advertises a court hearing called 'Doone Day Afternoon' and the words in the advertisement remind one of the song 'Frankie and Johnnie'. On the left of the scene is ex Police Commissioner Peter Doone dressed as a mobster in a belted coat and smoking a cigarette. He is a larger than life figure standing behind a police car. On the right is Prime Minister Helen Clark speaking into a microphone. The story is that of Peter Doone who resigned from the top police job after a scandal in 2000 involving he and his wife driving with no lights. He originally took out a law suit against the newspaper who printed the story that he had refused a breath test when caught but then dropped that case and is now taking a case against Helen Clark who he believes shafted him. Helen Clark had apparently been in contact five times with the newspaper before the story was printed.
