Police Minister Anne "Trasher" Tolley is talking tough on anti-boy racer laws, but a well-known criminologist has dismissed the first car crushing as "ministerial grandstanding". After a four-year wait since the new law was introduced by then police minister Judith Collins, which earned her the nickname "Crusher", Ms Tolley on Thursday in Lower Hutt pushed the button to compact the law's first victim. She said it would send a strong message to boy racers and would be upsetting for them to have their cars destroyed.
