What a hero

What a hero

I know that most people seem to have a natural aversion to lawyers, but (perhaps because I am in another disliked profession) I have never felt that way.

The Sydney Morning Herald has a great story today about a criminal lawyer who was harassed by police, and then, when she made a complaint, had evidence falsified against her.

I personally know of one other person who had this happen to them, and, in their case, exonerating evidence (that the police knew existed) was also stolen (likely by the ex-police security gaurds who were involved in the original evidence).

It’s great to read a story about someone who has fought against police bullying, and won.
