Judge Criticises Cop over Tactics


A Canberra magistrate has criticised the actions of a police officer that led to the victim of a disturbance to fall to the ground and hit his head

The police officer’s involvement followed an alleged cowards punch attack in April 2022 near a nghtclub in Civic.

The alleged victim refused to sit down, so the officer tripped his footing to get him on the ground. CCTV footage shows the victim falling and smacking his head on the concrete.

The Judge questioned the officer’s actions… saying they were alarming… and unnecessarily forceful.

Police have since issued a statement, saying the technique was executed poorly – and the officer has been counselled… and was remorseful.
