  1. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-australia-52612957 Richard Pusey: Australian driver 'taunted dying police at crash scene' Only one word for a man like that. From BBC An Australian man filmed and mocked four police officers as they lay dying, a court has heard according to local media. Richard Pusey, 41, who faces charges of reckless conduct and obstructing justice, applied for bail on Monday. He was pulled over for speeding on a highway last month. A short while later, a truck veered into the lane and ploughed into the officers. Mr Pusey was left uninjured. Police say he filmed the scene before fleeing. On Monday, his lawyer, Vincent Peters, said his client may have been in shock following the accident, reported the Australian Associated Press. All four police officers had been standing out of their cars when the refrigerated lorry drove into them and Mr Pusey's Porsche sports car. The driver, Mohinder Singh Bajwa, is facing negligent driving charges over the crash. Mr Pusey was arrested at his home in Melbourne hours after the crash on 22 April on the Eastern Freeway. Senior Constables Lynette Taylor and Kevin King, and Constables Glen Humphris and Josh Prestney died at the scene. It represented the worst loss of life in the history of Victoria Police, officials said. Police told a court on Monday that Mr Pusey filmed the scene for over three minutes, during which he zoomed in on certain areas and made derogatory remarks. The body camera of Senior Constable Taylor also captured Mr Pusey taunting her as she lay pinned under the truck. Experts say she was likely still alive at the time. Police have alleged that he later tested positive for drugs. "There you go. Amazing, absolutely amazing," he is alleged to have said. "All I wanted was to go home and have my sushi now and you've [expletive] my [expletive] car." His reported statements have sparked outrage in the local community. Victoria's Police Minister Lisa Neville previously condemned his actions as "completely sickening and disgusting". The court is yet to make a decision on his bail application.

The bloke walks out of Court following a 'public nuisance' arrest, mouths off at a police officer whom is giving a press conference, then walks up the road to sexually harass a young lady, only to get chased away by her father and then rugby tackled by the 'old timer' senior detective. He then got nicked for a second 'public nuisance' offence. Classic.
  3. http://mashable.com/2015/04/16/police-selfies-lost-phone/?utm_cid=mash-com-fb-main-link Police officer posts selfies and puns on lost iPhone owner's Facebook page Image: Bella Crooke / Facebook By Jenni RyallAustralia 1 day ago Australian police officers aren't your average cops. Occasionally, they are caught dancing on the street and sometimes they troll members of the public on social media. Police in the New South Wales country town of Albury had a laugh on April 12 when an iPhone was handed in at the local station, after its owner lost it on a night out. An officer taught the phone's owner, Bella Crooke, a lesson in phone security by posting a selfie of himself on her Facebook with the advice: "You should probably put a password on your phone. When you are ready to pick it up it will be at Albury police station." Image: Facebook / Bella Crooke The authorities followed up with a couple of puns for good measure. "If your worried about the battery going flat, don't. By the time you pick it up it will be fully 'charged'," they wrote. "It is a great 'cell' phone." They included a photo of the phone locked up in a cell. Image: Facebook / Bella Crooke To top off their Sunday morning fun, the offices also sent out texts to her friends, hinting at the whereabouts of her missing phone. Image: Facebook / Bella Crooke Crooke, whose surname is perfect for for this situation, had been at a dress-up party the night before and left her phone behind, according to the Daily Mail. A security guard had handed it into the police station, but Crooke hadn't been able to get there until 1 p.m. "The phone is still here. Ready to be released early for good behaviour. Just waiting on Bella to post bail," a follow-up message read. When Crooke arrived she had no idea about the social media interactions that had been taking place. Albury Police Inspector Anthony Moodie told the Border Mail it is fine to access a phone to track down an owner. "It doesn’t surprise me the creative ways they come up with in getting property back to the owners,” he said. "Phone users should use the locking mechanisms on their phone so if someone should get a hold of it, they can’t gain access to their private lives." http://mashable.com/2015/04/16/police-selfies-lost-phone/?utm_cid=mash-com-fb-main-link
  4.       Almost 200 Australian paramedics have been drafted in to work in London in a bid to alleviate chronic staff shortages.   Around 175 medics have been recruited from cities such as Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne and Brisbane as the London Ambulance Service tries to cope with dwindling staff levels.   An LAS spokesman confirmed a "shortage of UK staff" in the NHS was the reasoning behind the move. According to recent figures from the Health Service Journal, some NHS trusts have been operating with vacancy rates as high as one in four, leaving ambulance services to head abroad to find staff.   Mitchell Hand, a graduate paramedic from Sydney set to treat patients on the road today, said he saw London "as a great place to start my career". "It’s the busiest ambulance service in the world and there are many different opportunities such as working on a motorbike, cycle or car or for the hazardous area response team, which we don’t get back home," he added.   The Service's Director of Operations Jason Killens said the scheme had been a "success" and confirmed they would be going back to Australia in March to look at more potential candidates. It comes as paramedics and hospital staff are set to go ahead with a 12-hour strike on Thursday in a row over pay.   http://www.standard.co.uk/news/london/almost-200-australian-paramedics-drafted-in-to-work-in-london-to-help-with-nhs-staff-shortage-10002944.html
