THANKS! Direct Action helps too ....

So, using one of the links in my petition, I sent my concerns direct to the Police Commissioner.  They have to give me a case reference.  They have to give me a reply.

If you are an Aussie, or even better a NSW resident, please consider doing the same.  NSWPF Internet site www.police.nsw.gov.au Lets increase their workload! ....

As a martial artist I can attest to multiple ways a leg sweep recipient can be guided so as to reduce or eliminate injury as they fall. This was a failure of judgement, a failure of training and is now a failure of accountability.
> You also stated that your are "... sure people don't want the officer sacked".  WRONG. Sack him. I do not feel safe knowing my 20 year old is walking streets where a man whose ego is so fragile that he can't handle a bit of verbal teen rebellion without causing grievous bodily harm is on those same streets.
