CCTV exposes police lie [brisbanetimes.com.au]



A group of NSW police officers were exposed as liars by CCTV footage which showed they assaulted a 23-year-old Aboriginal man, not the other way round, a magistrate has found.

Ballina Local Court Magistrate David Heilpern today referred the incident to the Police Integrity Commission, after finding that three officers had lied under oath and had "debased" the "administration of justice".




The officer who claimed he had been assaulted said video tapes of the incident were damaged and could not be used.

However, when the damaged tapes were obtained by the prosecutor and repaired during Mr Barker's assault hearing, they showed that there was, in fact, no assault.

"...it was crystal clear that the defendant at no time punched Senior Constable Hill in the nose as described," Magistrate David Heilpern said.

Magistrate Heilpern found that Senior Constable Hill and another officer had colluded before giving evidence and that the latter had then lied under oath in an effort to cover it up.

Even when shown the DVD the officer "refused to accept that what was depicted was what had occurred".

Why are the cops able to get the cctv tapes to "damage" them in the first place? If the cctv tapes integrity is that easy to destroy, they are worthless in showing the truth on all accounts. There should be a way to protect them from tampering.

So; is the magistrate going to ensure the cops are charged with with criminal ofence of purjury??

This kind of case clearly demonstrates the need to public surveilance of police officers. after all, if they have nothing to hide I would imagine they would welcome it.
