Description

Legal proceedings against a former police officer have forced parts of this book to be redacted. Bent law officers exist in every era, sabotaging the work of their colleagues and putting the community at risk. James Morton and Susanna Lobez have illustrated, in several Gangland books, that Australia almost certainly has out-ganged other countries. Now their spotlight is turned on corruption within the police services and identifying which state wins the bent cop handicap. The authors examine the problems that started with the First Fleet and spread through to the present day, looking at the trouble caused by greed, power, alcohol, sex, money, and, most recently, drugs. They compare the experience in Australia with corruption in America, England, and Hong Kong, concentrating in particular on organized corruption at the highest levels, including judges, lawyers, and politicians, through to the petty criminals who work the streets. Which state has the shadiest cops? The answer will surprise you.
