Lesson to all drunk off duty cops - don't beat up the son of a detective
Officers who beat students fail to escape convictions
A police officer who beat up a group of students wanted to escape a conviction so he might one day apply to become a policeman in Queensland.
Patrick Garty, the drunk off duty Police Officer who beat up three teenagers on High st last year asked for the Judge to discharge him without conviction last week because he feared that a conviction would harm his ability to apply for a job in the Queensland Police force. Seeing as the Australian Police force are one of the most corrupt in the western world, an assault conviction may in fact be a pre-requisite for applying to the Queensland Police force.
What exactly did Patrick Garty expect? One of the teenagers he beat up is the son of a Detective! Let this be a lesson to all drunk off duty cops, only beat up teenagers who aren’t well connected.
