Childrens Cancer Institute – Great Cop Drop

Childrens Cancer Institute – Great Cop Drop

Dear All,

This post is shared on behalf of the author, (A mate and genuine nice guy!) and his family. Any support would be appreciated.

Friends,

On 9 September 2014 we were told that our then 4 year old daughter, Isla, had cancer. Her diagnosis was T-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia, an aggressive type of leukaemia. Isla had over two years of constant chemotherapy, 28 general anaesthetics, 23 lumbar punctures, 4 bone marrow samples, blood and platelet transfusions and spent months in hospital. She is going well but it won’t be until November 2021 that we will be told she is ‘cured.’

Our family has benefited from the research and trials done by the Children’s Cancer Institute with Isla going on a study to reduce the effects of chemotherapy within a week of her diagnosis, so we want to give something back that will benefit all families with a child with cancer.

The Great Cop Drop is police ( unsworn, retired and ex ) only tandem skydive event by the Children’s Cancer Institute to raise funds to continue their vital and ground breaking research. I’m extremely grateful that Commissioner Michael Fuller APM has given NSWPF support to the event.

The website (link below) has the details;

Date: Sunday  28 October 2018
Time: From 7.30am
Location: Sky Dive Australia – Stuart Park, Cliff Rd, North Wollongong Beach – Sky Dive the beach
Cost : $279 which covers the event AND skydive. Normal weekend tandem sky dive is $329.

 

Registration also includes Great Cop Drop t-shirt to wear the during the event and keep plus BBQ lunch supplied thanks to the generous support of the Police Association.

Optional cost: Video and photographs

As this is a fundraiser, it’s hoped each participant raises at least $1000.

Although supported by the NSWPF, this is not a police event and participation is off-duty, not in uniform, voluntary and there will be waivers to be signed on the day.

Also there will media leading up to the event and it’s hoped the Today Show will be broadcasting live on the morning.

The first skydiver has already committed to the event and I’m excited to announce the fearless NWMR Commander Assistant Commissioner Mark Jones APM has taken up the #1 skydiving position and has started his fundraising with pace.

The below link is to the website and if you do register go all the way through the process to create your fundraising page.

                              Boy suffers aneurysm after alleged attack in schoolyard

                              Rachel Olding

                              • Rachel Olding

                              A high school student has reportedly suffered an aneurysm after an attack by a schoolyard bully.

                              Josh Lawrie, 15, was allegedly attacked last Monday at St Dominic’s College, a Catholic school in Kingswood, in western Sydney, Channel 7 News reported.

                              He was reportedly walking through the schoolyard at lunchtime and was punched from behind by a student, who has since been suspended.

                              He continued to be punched while face-down on the ground until a friend intervened, Channel 7 News said.

                              “The next thing I remember is being in the bathroom washing my face,” Josh said.

                              A police spokesman confirmed that Josh and his mother went to St Mary’s police station on Tuesday, the day after the incident, to report “an assault which is alleged to have occurred at a local high school”.

                              “After reporting the matter to police, the teen was taken to hospital by his mother for scans and treatment of head injuries,” the spokesman said.

                              Channel 7 News reported that the school initially sent Josh home with his mother Lynda Lawrie, rather than calling an ambulance.

                              The aneurysm only surfaced during later scans.

                              The teenager has since undergone brain surgery and will spend his school holidays in hospital.

                              “I’ve … got a major brain problem and he’s just going to get a suspension for that,” Josh told Channel 7 News.

                              “He’s wrecked my life and he’ll only get a slap on the wrist.

                              “I don’t think that’s really good enough,” he said.

                              Channel 7 News reported that Josh has been told by doctors that he won’t be able to play sport again and will have to take blood thinning medication for the rest of his life.

                              Josh has been repeatedly bullied at the school and his parents told Channel 7 News that they believe the offender should be held accountable.

                              Ms Lawrie said that the first thing she was asked when she brought her son to the hospital was why he wasn’t taken in by an ambulance.

                              His father Richard Lawrie said “young fellas have to realise what they are doing” and think about the consequences of their actions.

                              A police spokesman said: “Police have obtained a number of statements and are now conducting inquiries into the matter.”

                              The school has not released an official comment but told Channel 7 News that there are two sides to the story.

                              Mysterious death sparks questions

                              By John Kidman and Sean Berry
                              August 3 2003
                              The Sun-Herald


                              A brief is being prepared for the coroner on the baffling overdose death of a young Sydney police officer, with detectives unable to discount the possibility he met with foul play.

                              The tragedy has also sparked a crisis of confidence within the force’s elite Special Crimes and Internal Affairs branch (SCIA), following claims that repeat warnings about the constable running off the rails were ignored.

                              City Central general duties officer Matthew Williams was found dead at his Fairlight home unit on the city’s northern beaches 17 days ago, The Sun-Herald has learned.

                              Sources close to the investigation say he was discovered by his flatmate – also a police officer – with two isolated needle marks in his arm and a used syringe beside his bed.

                              Suicide and misadventure have not been ruled out, but detectives are also said to be considering the extraordinary prospect that the 26-year-old policeman was deliberately injected with a lethal dose of heroin – known within the criminal fraternity as a “hot shot”.

                              Internal affairs and crime scene investigators are understood to have spent almost five hours combing the apartment without finding any further trace of the drugs that killed him or other incriminating evidence.

                              Williams was thought to have spent the night before he died drinking with workmates into the early hours of the morning.

                              “There was talk about him heading up to the [Kings] Cross afterwards,” one said on condition of anonymity. “But that’s the last anyone knows about what happened.”

                              On Friday, senior detectives from Manly, the nearest command to where Williams’s body was found, spent the morning speaking to his parents, Robert and Mary Williams, at their home in Sydney’s inner-west.

                              The couple is still too distraught to speak about the case.

                              A spokeswoman for NSW Police Commissioner Ken Moroney said on Friday he was unable to comment on the incident while it was before the coroner.

                              However, a Sun-Herald investigation has found that Williams had been the subject of a series of police intelligence reports alleging his involvement with party drugs and the inner-city club scene.

                              Last year, Mr Moroney announced plans to thwart corruption by profiling at-risk officers and intervening to save their careers before they did the wrong thing.

                              An ongoing audit of internal corruption complaints by SCIA has revealed that hundreds of complaints are not being acted upon.

                              In Williams’s case, at least one of his colleagues is alleged to have referred to his association with staff at the Cross’s notorious Stripperama, the same club where four off-duty police officers were savagely bashed in June.

                              Williams’s City Central colleagues spoke warmly of him yesterday.

                              “He was popular, really popular,” one told The Sun-Herald.

                              We recently lost a friend and colleague to suicide because of PTSD. She left her son and partner behind because she did not get the help she required. We owe it to her 11 year old son and for all the other partners, children and family members left behind by the officers who can see no Light at the end of the tunnel except by ending their lives. It has to STOP.

                              For too long, management of Australian Police Forces have silently accepted horrifically high suicide rates amongst our troops – Disproportionately higher than the Australian population.

                              We demand a national Coronial enquiry, seeking answers in a State by State basis.  We want to learn what are the primary stressors amongst our Police, what is/can be done to minimise this, and greater support services for our Police.

                              F*** You SA Police” – this was the last social media post of a SA cop who tragically took his own life just days ago.

                              “Suicide and bullying are rife within the police force. I’ve served as a cop in SA for 11 years now – I’ve battled first hand the toxic “suck it up princess” internal culture. It’s destroying, and costing lives.”

                              “I’m proud of my job, for keeping our communities safe from crime. We lock up murderers, protect domestic violence victims, and remove kids from horrific abuse. But what I’m sick of is the bureaucratic crap, intimidation and abuse of power that goes on internally.

                              Stop sweeping the fact police are killing themselves under the carpet. This is too important. My colleagues are dying around me. For too long now, management of Australian Police Forces have silently, knowingly, accepted horrifically high suicide rates amongst our troops – disproportionately higher than the Aussie population.”

                              I am starting this petition on behalf of myself and colleagues who are seeking an enquiry into the cause of suicides by Police in each Australian State.

                              We need to learn what the primary stressors are among our Police to then decide how to minimise more tragic deaths from happening.

                              The ‘Thin Blue Line’ is getting thinner –  Please help protect those who protect our community by signing and sharing our petition.

                              Police Officers everywhere, both past and present, are inevitably bound by a common bond.  This linkage, this manacle or shackle… this incredibly wonderful thing that ties us all together, is forged in both adversity and success.  It manifests itself in both tragedy and triumph, in sadness and elation.

                              At the commencement of every shift, our goal is to ultimately make it home at the end of the day.  To collectively ensure that our colleagues do the same.  In achieving this, we go a long way towards providing the comfort and protection that communities around the world so desperately need.

                              Since the dawn of time, Police Officers everywhere have rested soundly in the knowledge that should some tragedy befall them, their loved ones will forever be looked after.  That the bond with their colleagues, forged with blood, sweat and no shortage of tears will in part be passed onto those left behind.

                              And so it is in this case.

                              On 27 February 2017, Senior Constable Lisa Cannon of the Western Australian Police sadly left this world, leaving behind a son, Adam.

                              We are certain that Adam has been surrounded by love… that he is in no doubt that his mother loved him with her entire heart.

                              As he grows into a man though, it is vitally important that he is made aware of just how highly his mother was regarded on both sides of the world.  As Adam’s Police family, our small part in this is to pass on this legacy.

                              Please assist us in our endeavours to raise as much money as we can for Adam if only to reinforce to him during this journey that he is not alone in his grief, that Lisa’s extended blue family walks beside him every step of the way.

                              Help spread the word!

                              The funeral for Brevet Sergeant Ashley Meek, South Australia Police will be held at 10.00am on Wednesday 15 March 2017 at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 388 Montague Road Para Vista S.A. and then at Kibby Gardens, Enfield Memorial Park, Browning Street Clearview for a committal service.

                              Ashley was a decorated veteran, serving proudly with the Royal Australian Army in both East Timor and Iraq, as well as faithfully serving the people of South Australia.

                              Despite the incredible outpouring of grief following Ashley’s death, what is abundantly clear is that Ashley was dearly loved by all his family and friends. Described as a champion bloke, we intend remembering Ashley the way that he lived, as a true hero.


                              Rest easy blue brother… your work here is done.

                              This is Ashley Meek. Late last night in rural Australia Ashley took his own life. He was the 6th recorded veteran of the last wars on foreign soil to have taken their own life in 2017. Last year 75 Australian veterans took their own lives.

                              For the last five years, ever since I was taken under the wing of the Australian Defence Force and toured through the war in Afghanistan I have heard one veteran after another, from every tier of Defence, from every part of Australia tell me how difficult receiving help is for them. It is not new news that The Department of Veteran’s Affairs or DVA is a cumbersome and hopelessly ineffective bureaucracy. Young men and women who had served many tours of Afghanistan quietly called them the DVE to me, or Department of Veteran’s Enemies.

                              For too many years the DVA only counted suicides amongst enrolled Defence Force members as suicides associated with service. The young man I met who was homeless in Sydney last year after serving 5 tours of Afghanistan would not have been counted because he had been discharged in 2012 with PTSD. If Defence had discharged you for psychological illness and you suicided, then your death was not associated officially with your deployment. It was cruel, misleading and wrong.

                              Now the DVA is pushing for veterans to be administered as welfare recipients under the community services portfolio. I was sitting at my computer last night trying to get my head around what the changes would mean for some of my young friends who suffer from PTSD after their service in Afghanistan. At the same time I was pondering the Legislative Amendment before Parliament Ashley Meek took his own life. DVA is closing the services that they have offered veterans ever since the Vietnam War. Veterans’ Access Network (VAN) offices around Australia have been steadily closing down. Instead of those services veterans will have no option but Centrelink.

                              Next time a Prime Minister commits tens of thousands of young Australians to war on the other side of the planet I hope that that same Prime Minister assures those young souls that they will be respected, supported and cared for when they return, and that no expense will be spared in their recovery. Otherwise, do not commit our youth to war..

                              Rest in Peace Ashley Meek

                              Aussie cop takes own life at hospital

                              By Megan Palin

                              A South Australia police officer posted “F*** you SA Police” on his Facebook before walking into a local hospital and taking his life in front of medical staff last night.

                              The man reportedly drove to Cowell, about a 500km drive west of Adelaide, before entering the District Hospital around 9.45pm, news.com.au reported.

                              It is not known if the officer was on or off duty at the time of his death.

                              A brief statement issued by SA Police said authorities were “preparing a report for the coroner following the death of a man at Cowell on March 5”.

                              “No other persons are being sought at this time,” the statement read.

                              A South Australia Police spokesperson told news.com.au they had “nothing further to add”.

                              Cowell District Hospital has been contacted for comment.

                              One of the police officer’s colleagues, who asked to remain anonymous, said the man “posted (a) ‘f*** you‘ msg (sic) to SAPOL” on Facebook moments before he died

                              “The messages said F*** SAPOL and some other comments,” the source said.

                              The man, who news.com.au has chosen not to identify, has been described on social media as “a well respected officer, and former ADF member, who will be missed by many”.

                              “This bloke was and will forever remain a dead set legend,” another person wrote.

                              “No one saw it coming. We got the watch now brother.”

                              “We are all better people having known you,” another said.

                              News.com.au last month reported a lack of welfare support and subsequent mental health crisis within the Australian Federal Police after an agent was believed to take her own life in the Melbourne headquarters on February 7.

                              The reports prompted several state police officers to also come forward and highlight that a lack of welfare support for work-related mental health issues including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder was also a problem in state policing.

                              “South Australia has just seen one of their officers (take her own life),” one police officer told news.com.au.

                              The source was referring to constable Sharryne Grant, South Australia’s longest serving female police officer, who died by suicide in Adelaide in October last year.

                              “Suicide within the ranks is being ignored state wide,” he said.

                              “Cops can’t speak out, because they are crucified by management.

                              “(Instead they) suffer in silence.”

                              Blue Hope director Mark Kelly told news.com.au the organisation had received “nearly 50 referrals from struggling police since Christmas”.

                              “We are under the pump trying to meet demand,” he said.

                              We recently lost a friend and colleague to suicide because of PTSD. She left her son and partner behind because she did not get the help she required. We owe it to her 11 year old son and for all the other partners, children and family members left behind by the officers who can see no Light at the end of the tunnel except by ending their lives. It has to STOP.

                              For too long, management of Australian Police Forces have silently accepted horrifically high suicide rates amongst our troops – Disproportionately higher than the Australian population.

                              We demand a national Coronial enquiry, seeking answers in a State by State basis.  We want to learn what are the primary stressors amongst our Police, what is/can be done to minimise this, and greater support services for our Police.

                              F*** You SA Police” – this was the last social media post of a SA cop who tragically took his own life just days ago.

                              “Suicide and bullying are rife within the police force. I’ve served as a cop in SA for 11 years now – I’ve battled first hand the toxic “suck it up princess” internal culture. It’s destroying, and costing lives.”

                              “I’m proud of my job, for keeping our communities safe from crime. We lock up murderers, protect domestic violence victims, and remove kids from horrific abuse. But what I’m sick of is the bureaucratic crap, intimidation and abuse of power that goes on internally.

                              Stop sweeping the fact police are killing themselves under the carpet. This is too important. My colleagues are dying around me. For too long now, management of Australian Police Forces have silently, knowingly, accepted horrifically high suicide rates amongst our troops – disproportionately higher than the Aussie population.”

                              I am starting this petition on behalf of myself and colleagues who are seeking an enquiry into the cause of suicides by Police in each Australian State.

                              We need to learn what the primary stressors are among our Police to then decide how to minimise more tragic deaths from happening.

                              The ‘Thin Blue Line’ is getting thinner –  Please help protect those who protect our community by signing and sharing our petition.

                              Gawler soldier honoured

                              20 July 2016

                              MARCHING in the French National Day Parade and Western Front commemorative services, Sergeant Ashley Meek honoured fourth-generation cousin – and Gawler soldier – Lance Corporal Stewart Grigg last Thursday.
                              Sgt Meek, who has strong family connections in the Gawler area, serves in the 10th/27th Battalion, Royal South Australia Regiment, and recently embarked on a month-long trip, joining the army contingent for the French National Day Parade.
                              “The experience was extra special due to having a family history and connection within my unit to the battles in France,” Sgt Meek said.
                              “Getting to escort the colours, which my family fought for, was the icing on the cake.”
                              Gawler-born L.Cpl Stewart Grigg was enlisted in the 27th Battalion on February 4, 1915, and was awarded three medals for his service – the 1914-1915 Star, the British War Medal and a Victory Medal.
                              He served in Egypt, Gallipoli and the Western Front, where he was killed in action during the battle of Agincourt on March 26, 1917.
                              “Although his remains are yet to be found, his memorial is located at Villers-Bretonneux in France and I intend to visit this site one day,” Sgt Meek said.
                              He said the trip was a chance to pay his last respects to the late L.Cpl Grigg.
                              During the Western Front commemorations, he was part of the firing party during the reburial ceremonies.
                              “It is a very big honour to have been selected as part of the army contingent for French National Day Parade, and, in particular, to go to the Western Front and participate in the commemorative events taking place there,” he said.
                              In the wake of the recent terrorist attack in Nice, France, Sgt Meek said Australian troops remained “positive”.
                              “We are here to do a job and pay respect to our forefathers, but France, as a whole, is quite vigilant,” he said.
                              “The hospitality of the French people and the army has been great.”
                              Sgt Meek will return home later this month.

                              150 at Lock Dawn Service

                              IN sombre silence, more than 150 people gathered in the cold pre-dawn to commemorate Anzac Day at Lock.

                              After an Anzac Day introduction by Neil Cummins, Noel Siviour shared three short extracts from the 2/48th Battalion records.

                              Noel’s father, Lindsay Siviour, was in the 2/48th Battalion.

                              National serviceman Richard Cummins spoke of the charge of the Light Horsemen at Beersheba. His wife’s grandfather, Cliff Cabot, was in the 3rd Light Horse Regiment that served in Palestine.

                              Local Lone Scout Kendall Meyers beautifully recited the poem For the Fallen.

                              Mark Siviour, who served in East Timor and the Solomon Islands, spoke of Thomas Currie Derrick, known as Diver Derrick, who received the Victoria Cross for his assault at Sattelburg, New Guinea in 1943.

                              Brevet Sergeant Ashley Meek shared Ben Roberts-Smith’s heroism in Afghanistan during 2010 for which he was awarded the Victoria Cross.

                              Ashley Meek also read out the Ode of Remembrance, which was followed by the haunting bugling of Doug Monks’ Last Post.

                              There was one minute of silence and then as Reveille was played, Brevet Sergeant James McFarlane raised the flag.

                              Reverend Sue Ellis of the Lock Uniting Church led the gathering with the Lord’s Prayer.

                              Before she read the Soldier’s Prayer, she spoke of Martin Andrews, a former priest, who was a stretcher-bearer for the Medical Corps.

                              Councillor Malcolm Hancock laid a wreath on behalf of the Elliston District Council.

                              Lone Scouts, Australian military, CWA and family members also laid wreaths and flowers in remembrance of the fallen and the ceremony closed with prayer and the benediction by reverend Sue Ellis.

                              LADS (Lock and Districts Services) president Wayne Hodge thanked all for attending and then the club provided a cooked breakfast for all.

                              Facebook Group Hacked

                              FACEBOOK HACKED

                              Case #352230845

                               

                              this is the only way available to me for the next 3 days to get a message onto Facebook.

                               

                              Once again, one of my non Police FB Groups has been hacked and I am banned from my own Group for 3 days, that Group is not accessible to its members and I have lost the ability to acknowledge Posts, PM’s etc from ANY other Groups / Pages.

                              I am not even sure if I can actually get this message to my own time line.

                              I have searched, but can’t find, how to complain to or even contact FB directly to get this issue sorted.

                              When I was banned last week, for 24 hours, I had lost 1,600+ members from the same Group and the ENTIRE Threads for the past couple of years.

                              The likes of Danny Webster, myself and others who have Pages / Groups, with so much information in these Groups will be stuffed if those Groups are hacked and we lose all that Memorial information that we have accumulated are unable to backup.

                              How do I get onto FB and complain???.

                              Greg Callander Due to one of my non Police Groups being Hacked and the trouble that has stemmed from that and the non helpful response from FB management, I have had to use my deceased fathers FB profile to get into my various FB Groups / Pages and I have also had toSee More

                              Nicole Shaw

                              Nicole Shaw Facebook don’t respond to any complaints or questions people have. A lazy bunch of idiots that run this .

                              Greg Callander

                              Greg Callander I just sent them another deep message about the issue but still haven’t had a response. My main profile is still blocked for another three hours which means the deaths, funerals that I have recorded are not capable of being shared on FB yet because my website is linked with the FB Groups.

Today I am again banned from the same page – now for 3 days because of some breach of policy. I haven’t made ANY posts in that section. I have obviously been hacked. I lost 1600+ members from the group the first time and now I have lost another 80 who signed up again. Why and who is hacking my page? I asked for help last time and didn’t get a response from FB.

                              You have NOT addressed the issue of my FB having been HACKED.

                              I have NOT made inappropriate comments on my own Group.
                              I have LOST 1,600+ members from that Group because of the HACK.
                              I have LOST ALL of the Threads that were in that Group.
                              I have now been HACKED TWICE in as many weeks.

                              I am now prohibited, because of that HACK and you restricting my access, from Posting to my Policing FB pages and Groups who depend on me to inform them of upcoming Police funerals.

                              I am also restricted, because of the HACK and restrictions from sharing and / or informing the Community Groups I manage of ANY serious matters that arise in this community that may affect people’s property and / or lives with immediate and timely information about fires.

                              WHY IS MY FB GROUP BEING HACKED.
                              WHAT IS FB DOING TO ADDRESS THESE ISSUES THAT I HAVE RAISE.?

                              I wouldn’t have an issue if I have been using bad language, committing crimes etc, but I have been HACKED.

                              AGAIN you are not listening to what I am saying and,continue to send Generic responses, all of,which I did last week when the Group,was first HACKED.

                              Thanks for your “Timely” response – NOT.

                              Now someone else has, as of,Thursday, started up a similar Group but this STILL does NOT ADDRESS how my Group was originally HACKED and how I lost over 1,600 members due FB Banning me for something that I am NOT GUILTY of.

                              Please don’t send me another Generic response to change my password.

                              My password has nothing to do with it.

                              It was an attack upon the Group from which you have now banned me TWICE and I am still non the wiser as to WHY?

                              Hi Greg,

                              Thank you for your report. Please note it is not technically possible to hack a Facebook group. As long as the current administrators of a group keep their login details secure, and do not allow any suspicious people to become admins, then the group will remain secure.

                              Unfortunately I cannot personally remove this user as the group admin or re-add you or anyone else as the admin. We encourage you or the former admin of this group to contact the current admin to resolve this matter.

                              Finally, please note that as long as the group does not contain information that violates our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, we will not take any action on it. This decision is final. I apologize for the inconvenience.

                              Thanks for contacting Facebook,

                              Hi Kim

                              Problem is that I was the ONLY Admin on the Group. I never ever assigned any other person to that role and I have been banned twice from my own Group.

                              Non of my Policing Groups have been vandalised, at this stage. Just that Name, Shame or Praise Goulburn Group.

                              If I am the ONLY Admin, and I didn’t delete the 1,600+ members, who did?
                              And where have all the Threads gone to?
                              And why has it now happened twice within two weeks.

                              It is further exasperated because I am now Blocked from Administering all of my Policing funeral Groups because of this ban.

                              I have been banned for no legitimate purpose.
                              I most definitely haven’t breached any of FB Policy to warrant the banning.

                              Hi Kim

                              I am, and have always been, the ONLY Admin for the Group but twice now, I have had my access to that Group terminated by FB.

                              The first time a week or two ago, for 24 hours for some breach I am alleged to have committed and the current ban for 3 days for another alleged breach I am supposed to have committed.

                              In the first attack, the entire contents of the Group were removed i.e. all the Threads and over 1,600+ members were removed. I did NOT to that cull.

                              I am, once again, banned from the site I started and, because of that ban – someone else has since started a similar Group – so now I have no control over the content or direction of the original Group that I started.

                              Had FB NOT banned me for some alleged breach, I would still have my original Group and would still have the 1,600+ members that MY Group originally had.

                              .

                              FB Ban’s people WITHOUT giving those people adequate recourse.

                              When ever I have arrested an offender and charged them with a criminal offence, I am required by both Statutory Law and Common Law to provide a Brief of Facts to the Offender so that the offender knows exactly what he has done to commit said offence.

                              FB, on the other hand, bans a person for 24 hours, 3 days or whatever the penalty is and simply gives them a Generic notification that they have Breach some form of Policy but FB does NOT specify exactly what that Breach entails.

                              Had I been on the Group and was throwing out expletives left right and centre or calling people derogatory names, provoking people to violence etc – I would have absolutely NO PROBLEMS WITH BEING BANNED.

                              Fact is, I did NOT commit these offences, nor did I breach ANY Policy of FB to Warrant said Bans and FB has NOT SUPPLIED any reason, other than a Breach of the Policy, as cause for the ban.

                              If a person is to learn from their mistakes, it is incumbent upon those enforcing the ban or penalty to inform the offender specifically of why they have been penalised – at the very basic principal of Common Law.

                              If FB can demonstrate what I actually am alleged to have said, or done, to Breach said Policy – I would have no problem with it but with the dozens of FB pages & Groups that I Administer, co-Administer daily etc, how would any individual possibly remember all that they have said on ANY of those Threads.

                              In relation to the Group that I have been banned from ( Name, Shame or Praise Goulburn ), I had only made two short Posts when the first ban was lifted and, I can guarantee, that those two Posts in NO WAY contravened FB Policy.

                              Because of the current Ban, I am unable to respond to various people or inform hundreds of others about recent Police deaths so that those members may be afforded the opportunity to attend the funeral of those deceased Police.

                              Why am I still banned?
                              What is FB doing to address the issue of informing their members of the exact reason ( not a generic response ) as to why they were banned? ( You were banned because you said: ….. etc )
                              What is FB doing to ensure that this does NOT happen a THIRD time?
                              What is FB doing about the loss of my 1,600+ members of that Group?
                              What is FB doing about the loss of ALL the data that this particular Group had recorded?
                              What will FB do for me, now that I have lost control of a Group that I started – which I have now lost control of because of two unwarranted Bans upon me?

                              I would like this issue rectified ASAP and well and truly before the current bans simply passes.

                              As an aside, I also run several websites together with partners and advertise via FB.

                              Hi Greg,

                              Thank you for your report. Please note it is not technically possible to hack a Facebook group. As long as the current administrators of a group keep their login details secure, and do not allow any suspicious people to become admins, then the group will remain secure.

                              Unfortunately I cannot personally remove this user as the group admin or re-add you or anyone else as the admin. We encourage you or the former admin of this group to contact the current admin to resolve this matter.

                              Finally, please note that as long as the group does not contain information that violates our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities, we will not take any action on it. This decision is final. I apologize for the inconvenience.

                              Thanks for contacting Facebook,

                              Kim

                              AGAIN you are not listening to what I am saying and,continue to send Generic responses, all of,which I did last week when the Group,was first HACKED.

                              Thanks for your “Timely” response – NOT.

                              Now someone else has, as of,Thursday, started up a similar Group but this STILL does NOT ADDRESS how my Group was originally HACKED and how I lost over 1,600 members due FB Banning me for something that I am NOT GUILTY of.

                              Please don’t send me another Generic response to change my password.

                              My password has nothing to do with it.

                              It was an attack upon the Group from which you have now banned me TWICE and I am still non the wiser as to WHY?

                              I am still awaiting an appropriate response to the situation, or are you simply awaiting the ban to time out and then think I will forget about the issue?

                              I think some form of ‘ update ‘ is warranted on this issue because I, and my other members, certainly don’t want this rubbish to happen a THIRD time.

                              You certainly don’t work in a timely manner when a fault is brought to your attention but you are quick off the mark when someone allegedly complains about an alleged breach of your Policy.
                              Why is the Group: Name, Shame and Praise Goulburn District, of,which I am the ONLY Admin, now not accessible???.

                              LILO, you are kidding !?

                              I am not after GENERAL SUPPORT !
                              There is obviously something wrong with the FB Group system.

                              Your other colleagues tell me that it is NOT POSSIBLE for someone other than an Administrator to delete all those Posts and Members.

                              If I am the ONLY ADMINISTRATOR and I did NOT delete them – then how did I lose over 1,600 members of the Group during the first ‘Ban’, over 80 during the second ‘Ban’ and why can I no longer get back into the Group if I am the ONLY Administrator?

                              I am also concerned about all the other FB Groups that I administer going the same direction – so it is a FB issue and NOT a GENERAL SUPPORT QUESTION.

                              I will NOT allow this matter to simply disappear because there is too much at stake to simply let the issue die because you fail to support those who are supporting you.

                              FB tells me that Admin are the only people who can delete members from a Group.

                              My Group has been breach and that breach, by person or persons unknown, has resulted in 1600 members of that Group being removed.

                              This attack upon the Group was manifested by FB who banned my Profile for 24 hours and then 3 days due to an alleged breach of FB Policy.

                              I request that FB inform me, so that I don’t commit this breach a third time, how and when I am alleged to have made these breaches please.

                              THIS JUST KEEPS GOING ROUND IN CIRCLES.  THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING NEW IN THEIR GENERIC REPLY TO HELP ME WITH THE ISSUE.  I WILL, AGAIN, RESPOND TO THEM.

                              To FB at 1.57am Friday 12 August 2016:
                              Kim, FB keep sending me around in circles. I have visited the Help Centre numerous times and there is NOTHING to address the issue.
                              I did NOT:
                              – Repeatedly commenting on posts in a short period of time
                              -Rapidly adding people to a group
                              -Tagging people who aren’t your friends in real lifeThe Group was infiltrated, 1,600 members removed, all Posts were removed and I was locked out of my own Group. I was the Only Admin.

                              What is to stop this same issue happening with more important pages and Groups that I Administer.

                              I need to know, specifically, what happened so that I can ensure that it does NOT happen to these other Groups that deal with peoples deaths, PTSD, suicide and funerals. There is just too much at stake to let this issue simply go around in circles when it is clearly a FB issue that resulted in the initial loss.

                              Joe GARDEN was at Mudgee Police Station around 1987-88 in uniform. Not sure where he was prior to that.
                              Joe started in the Detectives office as an ‘A’ lister around that time. He was left high and dry after the designated detectives moved on and he was forced to run the detectives office ‘one out’.
                              Apparently Joe hit the bottle quite badly and finished up banging up a police vehicle ‘on duty’ whilst intoxicated.
                              Had some major fights with ‘senior officers’ and was forced onto sick leave.
                              Joe was ‘Force transferred’ to Dubbo Intelligence Office and worked there for a year or two before he drew his service revolver, went home and shot himself.
                              It is believed that Joe was aged in his late 20’s or early 30’s, married with young kids at the time.
                              ( 2019 ) Information is that Joe had attempted a drug over dose and had been admitted to Dubbo Base Hospital where, apart from other methods, he was orally administered ‘charcoal’ to absorb the poison.
                              He was seen, in Hospital, by a Mental Health worker who asked how he was.  Joe’s forceful reply was ” I’m FINE !! ” and Joe repeated that statement.
                              Later, that morning, Joe was discharged home.
                              Joe attended Dubbo Police Station where he picked up his Police issued revolver and went home where he placed a pillow slip over his head before fatally shooting himself, in the head, whilst on the lawn.
                              May you forever be at Peace Joe.
                              Further information is sought about this man, his life and his death.

                               

                              Internet searches have failed to find anything further as of this date – 1 June 2016 or 5 June 2019 – on this man.
                              Further information is sought.

                              Illness:   Cancer

                               

                              So close to Christmas it’s heartbreaking to hear that one of our police family’s is doing it tough.

                              Detective Sergeant Phil Buchardt, a sworn NSW Police Force Officer from St Mary’s Local Area Command was diagnosed earlier this year with an advanced and aggressive throat cancer. An operation attempting to remove some of the cancer caused damage to Phil’s tongue affecting his speech, breathing and ability to eat solid food. Phil’s doctors recently advised that the cancer is persisting and may not be operable.

                              Phil has been in the force for 33 years and was recently awarded the National Police Service Medal in addition to previous service medals. Phil, his wife Carol, who is also a serving NSW Police Force Officer and their 6 year old daughter Shelby are desperately feeling the strain of Phil’s condition and the financial burden of ongoing medical expenses. But Phil has great mates at St Mary’s LAC. They approached us and wanted to start fundraising to help Phil and his family.

                              So we’re asking you to help out. All donations will go directly to Phil, NSW Police Legacy will not take any of the funds raised through this appeal. At this time of year especially, Christmas, when it should be all about spending times with loved ones and rejoicing in our good health and happiness, please send some love to Phil and his family and donate.
