Nothing about bikes - but interesting court case re video evidence

    This sort of backs up something that came up at the MCC a year or so ago. It is legal to film officers going about their duty but you cannot use it as direct evidence. You CAN however use it to refute what plod says - and this is a great example.

    Moved to the pub since it is not motorcycling related:
  3. Wow. So the hangover from the Wood Royal Commission has worn off and the cops are back to their old tricks of using the trifecta - offensive language, resist arrest, assault police - to stitch up innocent people.
  4. Police lie... Whodathunkit?

    Tapatalking loud, saying somethin'
  5. Yeah. Calling Hornet to this thread to defend these lying scumbags
  6. I would hope to think these police officers are being prosecuted for perjury and have been dismissed from service as they are a disgrace to the uniform and give the honest officers a bad name
  7. Lying dogs.

  8. Fukkin wrong... Third world corruption going on in Australia...
  9. Hopefully people start to film these sort of things and come forward more often to lend credibility to people who have been wronged.
    It will at the very least keep the corrupt police on there toes and make them think twice before enacting the boys club codes
  10. Thank God for mobile phones with cameras!
    That could have happened to anyone.
