Stop Police Brutality against Juveniles In NSW

This petition was published by Anonymous on Apr 22, 2012

Dear Hon. Mr Greg Smith SC MP,
NSW Attorney General
Mailling Date: Friday 27/04/2012

I/we the undersigned call on the Hon. Mr Greg Smith SC MP, NSW Attorney General to immediately suspend the officers directly involved in the recent shootings and unlawful use of force against juvenile suspects in Kings Cross, NSW, pending an open and independent investigation.

It is also demanded that an immediate independent investigation external to the NSW Police be undertaken into (a) the actions taken by officers during those events, (b) the actions of the Officer in Command during the event (c) the overall use of force in relation to arrests in NSW, including use of sub and full side arms and (d) what remedial action is required within the NSW Police force to ensure further instances of this nature do not occur in the future.

It is expected that the officers directly involved in the incident in Kings Cross will remain on suspension until the outcome of an independent external and other investigations are complete and reported to the public. At this time an appropriate set of disciplinary measures, not excluding full dismissal and/or criminal charges being laid should be forthcoming.

We request that the NSW Commissioner of Police offer a personally written letter of apology to the families of the young people directly affected by NSW Police actions in Kings Cross, NSW and outlining that the actions (a), (b), (c) and (d) above will be undertaken immediately.

Yours Sincerely,
