Sending all my love to all the family. The memories we shared will never be forgotten. Will never forget the party at the West’s seeing him dressed up as a bikie with Leonie and how much he loved that Harley. I’ll always remember his gentleness and compassion. He was a very special and influential man. Thoughts are with you all and all the grandchildren.

Knew Richard ( Dickie ) from the time he joined the Police Cadets in 1962. Great mates during those wonderful days. We rowed in the re formed Police rowing team together with the likes of Glen Deholm and Bob Worland.
Dick and I went to Adelaide together in early 1966 on a camping trip visiting a number of ‘old’ former cadets along the way at various Police Stations in regional NSW. Lost contact unfortunately when I went to the bush that same year.
RIP mate and condolences to all the Doust family.

What a beautiful service for Richard. So pleased we could be part of it from the rolling hills of Dorrigo where he was born.
Richard’s Mum Glad Lawrence & my mother Ida Pullen, from Sydney went to Dorrigo in 1937 and met these two Dorrigo Dairy farmers. Glad married Albert Doust a 2nd cousin of my mothers. From that time our families have been close & would catch up at family gatherings over the years. It was great growing up with Richard, Margaret & Neroli in Dorrigo and more recently catching up with them at Nelson Bay at a fabulous dinner party with Geoff & Judy Washington in February. Our thoughts are with you all. A wonderful Celebration of Richard ‘s life.

Doctors refuse to treat a tough-as-nails anti-bikie cop who has just days to live – even though life-saving surgery is available and he’s willing to sign a waiver

  • Specialists refused potentially life saving cancer treatment to a former cop 
  • David Roberts has just weeks to live unless he receives experimental treatment
  • But medics are nervous the untested treatment could have adverse affects 

David Roberts (pictured during treatment) is hoping for one more chance at life after traditional cancer treatments failed
David Roberts (pictured during treatment) is hoping for one more chance at life after traditional cancer treatments failed.

Specialist doctors have refused potentially life saving cancer treatment to a former police officer because they can’t guarantee it will work.

David Roberts, 49, is willing to sign a waiver clearing medics at Sydney’s Royal Prince Alfred of any wrongdoing should he have an adverse reaction to the experimental medication.

The father-of-three has been given just two weeks left to live after other treatments for his stage four non-Hodgkin lymphoma failed.

Mr Roberts (pictured with his younger daughter just a year ago) said his condition deteriorated quickly in the time after this picture was taken.
Mr Roberts (pictured with his younger daughter just a year ago) said his condition deteriorated quickly in the time after this picture was taken.

He said he will likely die whether or not he has the treatment, but wants doctors to give him one last chance at life.

The former NSW detective (pictured during an interview in 2019) appealed for help to get permission to use the treatment, which normally costs $500,000.

 

The CAR T-cell treatment, which costs $500,000, is currently being tested in clinical trials across the nation, but anyone ‘qualified to administer it isn’t prepared to do so’ in Mr Roberts’ case, The Australian reported.

It requires removing T-blood cells from the body – which doctors have already done for Mr Roberts – before mutating them and reintegrating them back into the patient’s system.

The mutated cells hopefully then fight the cancerous cells on their own.

But doctors fear the treatment could actually cause him harm or make his condition worse, which would breach their ethical obligations.

 

David Roberts

 

The well-respected former NSW detective and his family called upon politicians to help him secure the treatment when he first learned of his terminal diagnosis.

Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt personally lobbied on Mr Roberts‘ behalf, as did NSW Police Minister David Elliott, who wrote to PM Scott Morrison asking for his support.

‘Like every officer who dedicates and often risks his or her life to keep the community safe, the State owes him a debt we can never repay,’ Mr Elliott said.

NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard agreed the government would help cover the cost of the therapy.

 

David ROBERTS

 

Mr Roberts’ colleagues described him as a great, case-hardened detective who put people’s lives first in his two-decade career.

He worked his way up from a local cop at the Burwood Local Area Command to the Middle Eastern Organised Crime Squad and was decorated for his arrests and work ethic.

His daughter Reanna wrote a letter to politicians after his terminal diagnosis, reminding them that her father ‘has been an outstanding civil servant and showcased strength and courage like no other person.

‘This is our last opportunity to save our dad’s life,’ she wrote.

The news that he will not be granted access to the treatment has shocked Mr Roberts, his family and everyone in his corner who had been lobbying tirelessly.

‘Inaction will mean certain death,’ Mr Roberts said. ‘They’ve already got my T cells harvested and ready to go. Instead of giving me a chance, why would they let me… die when there is another option?’

Mr Roberts cannot travel overseas to find a doctor willing to administer the treatment because he is quickly deteriorating.

But the Sydney Local Health District is standing by its decision.

A spokeswoman said: ‘We must ensure experiment­al treatments are safe and approp­riate for the patients involved­. The decision not to proceed­ with treatment has been made by a panel of national expert­s in this field.’

First interview: Policeman who shot Constable Bill Crews talks about the pain of the dark day that claimed his mate’s life

THE incident lasted just 2.8 seconds – from the time police shouted “search warrant” to the last of five bullets being fired. For three years Detective Senior Constable Dave Roberts, 42, has been struggling to understand how a routine warrant ended with his mate killed from a bullet he fired.”For a long time I couldn’t think clearly about the matter,” Roberts said.

Bill Crews

In 2010, his team from the Middle Eastern Organised Crime Squad were in the carpark of a Bankstown unit block to search drug supplier Philip Nguyen, 55.

It was considered so low-risk that detectives walked into the garage without guns drawn.

Constable Crews, 26, had just joined the squad as a highly recommended recruit. He was carrying a folder under his arm.

Extensive intelligence checks would tell police Nguyen was not armed.

Then they spotted him.

Roberts remembers an incredibly cramped space, Nguyen walking quickly out of his garage, the muzzle of his gun flashing as it fired, and Crews promptly returning fire three times.

“I’ve dropped what I was holding, drew my gun and fired once,” he said. “All that took less than three seconds.”

His words slow as he recalls regrouping with his colleagues behind a brick wall when the shooting stopped. They realised Bill was missing.

“We were looking down the garage … we saw Bill lying motionless.”

He exhales deeply before continuing.

“I was expecting to see Nguyen on the ground as well. I was hoping like crazy my round had struck him.

“About 10 seconds after it dawned on me that my round may have struck Bill.” Roberts‘ world fell apart after that night – his colleagues’ too. The commanding officer who approved the warrant later quit the force and to this day blames himself for the whole incident.

Another detective who saw the tragedy unfold self-medicates with alcohol and medication. He is a mess.

Roberts suffered the most. He has held his silence since but agreed to share his story in the hope it might assist others suffering extreme trauma.

His path has been a lonely one. It is the only friendly fire case in NSW Police Force history where a policeman has died in the line of duty.

After the incident he was taken to hospital and treated for injuries caused during a grief-stricken rage. His knuckles still bear the scars from that night as he tried to punch holes through brick walls inside the garage.

He woke to discover Nguyen was in custody and uninjured, ending any hope his bullet struck its intended target.

A carload of senior police would arrive on his doorstep later that evening to break the news his bullet struck Crews.

“That was one of the worst days of my life.”

At his lowest point Roberts was gambling heavily and dependent on Xanax to regulate his moods. He also began experiencing debilitating panic attacks. He had previously never gone near a poker machine now he was addicted. His marriage of 18 years nearly collapsed.

“I lost thousands over a 12-month period. Initially I played low amounts _ $10 at a time _ but on occasions I would put in $500. It was an escape … a very expensive way to numb the mind.”

With the help of sessions at a post-traumatic stress clinic he managed to walk away from gambling in April last year but there would be other struggles.

Crews’ desk had been left untouched when he returned to work a month after the incident. Little reminders of him were everywhere. They exchanged two emails just before heading off that night.

“I’ve only just deleted them,” Roberts said. “I kept them for two years.

“When I hit send on those emails everything was good. Bill was still alive. They’re a painful reminder.” Compounding his grief were reports suggesting the search was “botched”, implying he was clumsy or ill-prepared.

“It hits hard,” he said. “I knew the word `botched’ wasn’t a nice word. I looked it up and the definition is everything I’m not.”

Nguyen‘s solicitor would later assert in court that Roberts, a stickler for safety precaution, was the only officer wearing a ballistic vest that night. Incorrect. Another detective, Tom Howes ( # 40442 ) was wearing body armour – and for good reason. Howes was with Roberts the night of December 27, 2007, when a Comanchero bikie pointed a gun in their direction during a traffic stop, prompting two shots to be fired.

Both officers, ever since, insist on body armour.

Until just a few months ago, Roberts said he could not forgive himself. Nagging questions were dogging his mind. What if he had aimed better? What if the bullet had been two centimetres to the right? What if the gun was angled higher?

He would return to the Bankstown garage several months after the shooting with two police colleagues – one a tactical weapons expert, the other a detective – to reconstruct the incident and seek their impartial advice.

Statistically it was impossible to replicate the circumstances of the shooting. The whole thing was a tragic, freakish one-in-a-million, they said.

“I beat myself up for a long time over this,” Roberts said, citing family, close friends, police colleagues and the police chaplain, Frank, as those who brought him back from his living hell. “I don’t `what if‘ so much anymore. I don’t blame myself anymore.”

Nguyen has been sentenced to seven years jail over the death of Crews that night. Prosecutors have appealed, saying the punishment was “manifestly inadequate“.

Roberts is still in the force, but in a different command. He has several important reasons for staying – he wants to set a positive example for people and show life can go on after even the worst tragedies. The job, he says, is an extremely noble profession. But a major factor that is close to his heart is Crews‘ mother. “I made a promise to Sharon … She said if we left the cops it would compound her grief.”

On September 8, the anniversary of Crews’ death, Roberts will visit the memorial. Every year he goes by himself, looks at Crews‘ name, and remembers that night and his colleague in private.

“There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about what happened and not a day goes by where I don’t think about Bill. And there hasn’t been for the past three years.

“I think about Bill only being a young man and he had everything ahead of him.

“I know he was well-loved by his family, by his friends.

“I know there isn’t a day that goes by (that) they wouldn’t miss him either.”

For the information of those of us who know Retired Chief Inspector Peter Lindwall from the Warilla days.
I sent Pete & Flo and email yesterday asking how they are because I expected to see Pete at Kevin Monks funeral and thought it strange he didn’t show.
Pete sent me the below message yesterday evening – but I have only just read it now.
He was a bloody great bloke and it is a shame to hear of this happening to him – so I will have to get down there in the early New Year for a coffee with him. ( this, unfortunately, didn’t happen but I did get to speak with Pete about 4 days before his passing, with a phone call ).
Hi Cal,
Unfortunately I’m not travelling too well my self at the moment.
I am sorry but I thought that you would have heard about this.
In December last year ( 2019 ) I was diagnosed with Non Hodgkins Lymphoma. For the first half of 2020 I was receiving chemo at Wollongong Hospital. All appeared to be going well but after the treatment finished the chemo returned which wasn’t good. I started in a clinical trial at Prince of Wales, Randwick in September which also was going well, but follow up scans showed that the lymphoma had once again returned. There is no more treatment that I can have or the Doctors can do.
I’ve been in and out of hospital for the past twelve months. I came home from hospital on Christmas Eve and hopefully I won’t have to go back in.
I’m feeling okay, some pain around the back and hips, but I am on pain relief medication.
I’m sorry that you didn’t know about this I just thought that the word would have passed around.
It was certainly a shock about Kevin Monk, but unfortunately I wasn’t in a position to attend the funeral.
Feel free to pass this information on to anybody that you think should know.
My mobile phone number is 0409 247 685. It’s okay to give me a call.
Thanks for your concern Cal, we greatly appreciate it.
Regards
Peter

 

 


 

Deepest condolences to Pete’s wife, Flo, son Steve, family and friends.

 

Pete was a lovely bloke who cared for his troops and family.  He was a bloke for whom everyone respected because of his nature.
