The thin end of the spin
So, a policeman walks around the corner of a street in his neighbourhood and sees two armed guys standing on either side of another guy who has a sack over his head. Standing in front of the guy with the sack is another - uniformed - guy, who is talking to the guys with the sack on his head.
The Policeman interjects, as he should, but is reassured that all that's going on here is an interview, not an interrogation, torture, mugging or anything else ... yeah, right!
What makes me evern more sick to my stomach is that, according to the official government regulations, that officer, if he suspects there is an interrogation taking place is supposed to walk away and not get involved!! Where's the ethics and morals in that decision??
How sickening can an Australian government be?? This is not the behaviour that the reasonable, common people of Australia would expect - especially from our "leaders". They lie, cheat deceive and then expect us to swallow any kind of twisted crap just because they say so .... it's unAustralian.Posted by Hughie at February 17, 2005 10:56 AM
