WA police who knocked down Aboriginal man should be stood down and a full independent investigation must take place: Greens
Rachel Siewert 10 May 2018
Footage showing WA police knocking down an Aboriginal man is extremely distressing and should trigger a full independent investigation, Australian Greens Senator Rachel Siewert today.
“The second tranche of footage that shows WA police veering into the path of an Aboriginal man and knocking him on to the footpath is extremely distressing.
“I believe this is indicative of a broader problem within the WA police in regards to some officers' attitude and treatment of our First Peoples and should be taken very seriously.
“The officers involved should be stood down and a full independent investigation must take place”.
