A small bouquet for the wallopers

There are a lot of goons and drongoes in the Queensland police "service" but there are some decent people too

Tonight I was pulled up for a breath test and the lady cop with the test kit took one look at me, smiled, said "I think you're OK", and waved me through without testing.

I was stone cold sober, neatly dressed and had Anne with me so I suppose we just looked like an elderly couple out for the night -- which we were. So the lady cop got it right and behaved to a higher standard than duty required. I congratulate her.

A couple of months ago another lady cop stopped and helped me change a tyre, as I was in fact having a spot of bother with it. And she was most pleasant too.

If only all police were of that quality!

... amazing isnt it, after ploughing through the volumes of revolting cases of police misconduct, someone pipes up with a granny story about a nice cop who does a good turn, & ahh, we sigh & think, so many good people cast in a bad light because of the few... Wake up, this is the kind of propaganda that has kept the Qld police afloat for so long. Any organisation as broken down & decrepit in its conduct should be disbanded & replaced, top to bottom. How many 3 legged dog stories does it take to excuse blatant & repetitive betrayal of public trust by this rotten institution? Every time we sigh to one of these trite examples, another dozen appalling cases of abuse are exonerated.
