WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?

Whale Oil has an excellent story here regarding John Minto, Deputy Leader of the Mana (Crimdotcon) Party and his urging of sheeple to take direct action against firms selling items from various New Zealand owned companies including Talley's, Open County and AFFCO in protest against the way the business is being run and/or the owners politics.

Minto proposes various forms of direct action including suggesting that people should "go into supermarkets with their car key and quietly puncture the bags of dried apricots and scratch the labels on the wine bottles to make them unsaleable". 

My old mate The Realist who is much more versed in the law than I may care to confirm or otherwise but, as I see it, there appears to be a prima facia case for the Police to charge Minto under the provisions of S66(1)(d) of the Crimes Act 1961 relating to the incitement, counsel or procurement of a person to commit an offence.

Furthermore it seems to me that as John Bernard Minto is a registered teacher (137671) the Education Council should be considering whether he is a fit and proper person to be allowed in the classroom.

What's the difference between John Minto, inciting people to commit a crime, and say Simon Toon, suspended and facing deregistration for masturbating alone in a classroom at AGS while watching pornography on a computer?    

Educate me.
