Guildford got off lightly: US police

COOK Islands police let themselves down with the decision not to charge the disgraced Zac Guildford, a US police chief who's a regular visitor to Rarotonga says.

Jeff Gunter, of Idaho, said he was "totally disappointed" no criminal action was taken against the All Black.

During his drunken escapade in Rarotonga, Guildford allegedly assaulted two people and sexually harassed triathlete Kelly Pick.

"If this scenario would have occurred where I am in charge of the police department, and I chose to do nothing, I would be sacked, and rightfully so," Mr Gunter said in a letter to the editor of the Cook Islands News.

"Granted, Zac Guildford apologised for hitting two men - good for him - but that doesn't negate the fact he [allegedly] committed crimes."
