Bent Cops Sworn To Serve They Served Themselves

Author(s): John Kerr

True Crime

Some law enforcement officers have bent, broken, and
abused the law. They have done so since the First Fleet
sailed, and will continue to do so until RoboCop takes
over. (Then, we will see how it goes.) They do it for
gain, convictions, career, power, mates, sex and favours;
out of fear of exposure; out of frustration with the
evidence available; in conformity with others; or because
they felt there was no other way. If what is alleged is
true, some police connived with burglars to see a file
uplifted from the Victoria Police Drug Squad offices
during the Christmas-New Year period in 1996-7. The file
covered E2/92, a high-quality informant and witness, a
brave and effective citizen. The burglars' and the still-
unknown police officers' connections had another $250,000
for the next stage: kill E2. A big-time Melbourne pimp
and a murderer, both facing charges, said Sergeant Paul
Higgins and other Vice Squad detectives took kickbacks to
ensure the pimp's illegal brothels and escort services
could operate without hassle - and worse. Higgins went
down for 7 years and emerged bitter and angry with the
criminal justice he received.
