Kwinana Courier - - Opinion -

IN Amer­ica, a woman in py­ja­mas ap­proaches a po­lice­man and is shot by that of­fi­cer's se­nior part­ner; a peace­ful woman is killed. In Aus­tralia, a man bran­dish­ing a ma­chete slices a po­lice­man's head open and is tasered by that of­fi­cer's ju­nior part­ner; a dan­ger­ous man is ar­rested.

If Aus­tralia does not want to be con­demned to be­come the worst of what is Amer­ica, our ju­nior po­lice of­fi­cer de­serves a com­men­da­tion and our po­lice ser­vice de­serves a pay rise. Mark Dyer, Rock­ing­ham
