Unbelievablely appalling police behaviour!
8 July 2018 | by gavinchadwickSee all my reviews

As gay man and son of a policeman, I found much of this extremely confronting to watch. Thankfully I live in Western Australia. The behaviour of the police in the 70s , 80s and 90s was appalling! What is more appalling however, is the continued denial of the police and the covering up of their lack of due diligence! This documentary should make any civilised Australian bloody angry. I cannot imagine how these families feel anything but angry and pissed off!
