I would just LOVE to see a series of Micaleff take-offs of QLD police handling victims of domestic violence. When I go to the police to report a breach of my domestic violence order, I may as well have walked into a South Park episode! Somehow the police turn the tables and start accusing me of triggering the violence, of exagerating or making things up, I even wound up learning that a lot of Qld police are war veterans (even though they would be in their early 20's and less than half my age) and that they have put their life on the line for me, that I am wasting their time, interrupting their retirement day, delaying their daily trek to the donut shop, the last thing they intend to do is take my complaint, let alone act upon it, let alone do their job, perish the thought of actually serving people!!!!
What else can one do except ridicule the police back when their dealings with domestic violence victims are so outrageous? I always take a "friend" (witness) along with me now when dealing with the Qld police....funny that their attitude towards me is magically transformed when I have a witness. One can only assume that those police support domestic violence, or perhaps there was, unfortunately, a competing sale on at the local donut shop that day (make that everyday)?
Comedy is the last vestige of justice for such outrageous lassitude. Please help. No-one else will.
I was pleased to hear that the Department of Public Prosecutions would now decide which cases to prosecute, where serious crime is involved. Women die and are raped within domestic violence daily and the police not only ignore these cases, but re-victimise the victims. I wonder if the police can be prosecuted too? I hope so. Women identify these dangerous men and "the law" ridicles them for it! Remember these men lie like Craig Thompson, and perform like Oscar Pistorius. The women in their lives identify these dangerous and evil men, even from the grave in the Pistorius case and countless other like it.
