Taser [-torture] victim Kevin Spratt has written to Police Commissioner Karl O'Callaghan and Attorney General Christian Porter demanding access to [a video] of a second Taser attack and a copy of his criminal record by 2pm tomorrow. ... [LINK] [via TNT]
But Mr. Spratt yesterday claimed Mr. Porter was deliberately finding ways to stall the [video] being released. "It must show shocking violence against me because, after the Corrective Services Officers took me out of the cell, I had a busted shoulder, a punctured lung and had to be admitted through the emergency department of Royal Perth Hospital for surgery," he said.
Mr. Spratt has also asked Mr O'Callaghan for a copy of his criminal record after it was leaked to the media. The leak is currently being investigated by the Corruption and Crime Commission, with Mr Spratt saying it was misleading and inaccurate.
Mr. Spratt even used the 'T' word ("...tortured by your personnel...") in his demand letter. And justifiably so, by any reasonable standard.
Sounds to me like 'the authorities' in Western Australia are going to have their own heads handed to them on a silver platter.
It's gonna be a treat to watch this play out.
