You know Tech Sport...my daughter who is now 29 years old was considering (in NSW) in becoming a police officer.Naturally my wife was against it due to the dangers involved. I was in a suburb around Sydney Metro during this time and I saw two police officers (of whom one was a Sergeant (from the stripes)walking along). I stopped them and said" Hey do you know that my daughter wants to become a police officer..however my wife is against it due to the dangers (meaning dangers from criminals etc) involved". Do you know what the response was? "Tell your wife that there are more dangers from WITHIN the police service rather than from outside". Now from this response you can quite easily assess that not ALL police are bad....can't you?
Tech Im not quite sure what your trying to prove.
We all know you have a problem with the police or you wouldnt be posting the same post with the same message over and over, police corruption da da.
So Im saying youve made your point about police corruption so whats the point of posting the same message over and over.
If you want to take on the police fight them in courts etc well thats your choice but how about posting stuff thats helpful in law rather than the stuff you seem continually post which is a diatribe about police corruption.
Whatever you think the majority of Queeenslanders may agree that there is police corruption as do the majority of every one in Australia the US and probably the world about thier police but that does not mean that the whole POLICE FORCE is corrupt, I know police corruption exists an it needs to be squashed at every opportunity but you do tend to go on and on about it. Really nobody cares about your personal crusade.

It's good to see that you have an opinion on this and I welcome such. I see you too agree...
This post was only made as a talking point, which it obviously has become.
As you said yourself "I know police corruption exists an it needs to be squashed at every opportunity" so why ignore it.
There's enough people on this forum asking questions relating to such. Given that, don't they deserve the power of knowledge..?

You need to read my earlier posts regarding this as you have a naive view at present.
I have legal proceedings pending regarding one cop named Con Mark Puglisi.
If you had been subjected to just half the crap that he has subjected my family to - you wouldn't have a very nice opinion of the cops, would you?
So please get it right, I have nothing against your every day cop, just suspicion.
And how can one move on when you have to take out an AVO just to get the cop to leave you and your family alone...
Alright TechSport I apologise alright. I did not know your situation. But please cease being incensed over little things said.....that was only an expression...I did not mean that you are not intelligent....it just came out.
You know if you have issues with the police...and they may be valid..it will do you no good to be so worked up. Anger may blind you to working out the best tactics in "fighting" these police.
There is corruption in all walks of life and all professions, unfortunately police corruption can impact on the personal liberty and rights of an individual more so than anywhere else.
I am a career criminal. I am considered by many police to be a a "person knowingly concerned with organized crime" and "having influence in criminal organizations both domestic and abroad". That being the case you would assume that i am anti-police ? Incorrect. They fulfill a vital function and deserve the respect and support of the public. I am what i am due solely to the corruption of police during the 70s/80s and the cynicism that generated in me. I tell everyone that if your an innocent party in a crime you call the police and you tell them, you dont hide behind the "code" of not being a dog. And believe me i know more about who does what around the place than most. that's the reason the police are keen to put me away for as long as possible. They hate the fact i know where the bodies are so to speak, and that i have already stated that while very senior police that i have personally paid sums of money to are still in the force i will never co-operate with them.
Then have you been framed for a crime you didn't commit by the police when you were 19 simply because you were in the the wrong place at the wrong time?
Did you end up serving 3 years for it?
Did you then get out determined to put it all behind you and then, after being approached by other police, make a statement regarding the officers concerned only to then be bashed near to death and spend 8 months in hospital?
Did you then get told that another word and you were dead?
No so until you have save your mealy mouthed platitudes for someone who may actually give a damn.
I made a statement of fact not a justification for what i am.
We all make decisions and i have made mine and i am what i am but i wouldn't have been without the assistance of the police.
But re-read my last post. I do believe the majority do a great job, to good as far as my criminal career is concerned, and are a vital part of society but it bothers me, and it should bother everyone, that some do exactly what i do and yet i go to jail and they get a promotion.
No offence taken or intended.I admit it could seem a rather arrogant comment.Not suggesting that i'm in any way better than someone who's been moulded by the unsavoury people in their lives.And you're right,i don't know if i'd have the same attitude if i'd been locked up for 3yrs for something i didn't do.
Just like any job, there are always going to be d!ckheads in it. 99.9% of cops are decent people, its that final 0.1% who walk around feeling as though they have a point to prove and take it out on whoever. Unfortunately it's just human nature to remember the bad encounters. I'm sure any of you who have had any dealings with a variety of police would say that they were for the most part positive.
