  • Decontamination... yep.out after 10 years (for 2 years to decontaminate) from all the internal cultural expectations to keep quiet,hold the line,don't tell tales on other cops ...So what has changed in the last 35years...........
    zero zilch....There should be no lifetime police jobs just like everyone else..
    Dirty your hands just like everyone else!They talk about what they have to put up with and all that crap.Why are they then, allowed to stay in the job after venting their spleen about everyday normal happenings in a non robot world.

  • Guess what! They are starting to worry, that when they are sacked and not under the the protection of QPS, that they will liable to be criminally prosecuted after these cuts take place, for hidden assaults and other crimes that have been covered up.Have a look at what it cost the UQ man to get justice after being assaulted, from these protected criminals!If you are raped,robbed or injured they can moralise through the media about crime and the need for this private club of moralists but if they assault you, it does not matter, as the dual morality they practise, is they are allowed to, because todays society doen't blog like blazes on any assault on citizens by bent cops.What goes around is now coming closer!A damming revelation of just what double standards they are allowed in society by becoming police officers.
