Man said to have hindered police
SYDNEY, Friday. — A teaching brother pleaded not guilty in Central Court today to a charge of hindering police who had arrested a drunken Aboriginal woman in Sydney on November 30 last year.
Before the court was Brother Thomas Charles Hammerton, 39, a De La Salle teaching brother attached to the St Vincent’s Presbytery, Redfern.
Sergeant Ross Lambert said that as the woman was being placed in the police van, Brother Thomas had tried to grab, her. He said that Brother Thomas had yelled,”Watch the racist police.
He told Brother Thomas to go away but he lunged again and tried to take hold of the woman.
Brother Thomas said he had told the police to treat the woman with dignity and respect.
He said the police pushed and shoved the woman like a “sack of potatoes”.
He said he had then said to them, “Hey, are you a racist or what?”
Mr Berman, SM, adjourned the hearing until March 16 and allowed Brother Thomas to go free without bail.
