They would have been ok with a sexual predator if he had just been honest about being a predator :disgust:

If Mr Brown had been more open in his disclosures to his employer, the police and the Law Society, he would have been prepared to accept he had reformed - but he had been less than honest, Justice Wylie said.

50/50 call to put this in here or in the "It's not about race" thread.
34 years ago...... A Twitter thread worth reading.


On this date - May 13, 1985 - Philadelphia Police dropped a bomb from a helicopter on a home owned by radical black nationalist group MOVE, destroying the house, killing 5 adults and 6 children, and causing a fire that burned down 61 black middle class homes.

The police do claim they applied for a warrant 5 days prior to the raid. If the story of no warrant is true that’s egregious, but the facts aren’t even clear yet.
They had no right to enter the house without a warrant, applied for or not.
She was an idiot for granting them access. Had they forced their way in sans warrant all their evidence would've been inadmissible.

Sydney police 'asked boy to hold genitals' during festival search

The first boy, a 14-year-old known as GEN13C, was strip-searched after a sniffer dog came close to him but did not sit down.
The boy was separated from his older brother, taken into a room and told to "hold your d**k and lift your balls up and show me your gooch [slang term for the perineum, area between the anus and genitals]", the inquiry heard.
In his interview with investigators, the boy said he "froze" when asked to do this, leaving him "nervous" and "shaking". He was allowed to leave and enter the festival when "nothing adverse was located".

The second case involved a 16-year-old boy who was strip-searched after security staff spotted him fiddling with a bumbag.
The boy, known as GEN14C, was asked to "lift up his balls" and "squat and cough", the inquiry heard. When asked to do so, GEN14C said: "Why is this happening?"
In the case of GEN15C, a 15-year-old boy, security moved him to a private area, where he was subjected to a strip-search.
The boy was told to lower his shorts, grab his penis and lift it up, the inquiry heard.
"At that time, the male officer inserted his hands - that is, the male officer's hands - inside GEN15C's underwear, making contact with his testicles," Ms Dwyer told the inquiry.
The officer, who was not wearing gloves, did not find any drugs during the search but GEN15C was ejected from the venue, Ms Dwyer said.
