Disgust at media treatment of public servant

I am writing to express my absolute disgust at the way the murder of a public servant is being reported in some parts of the media.

This is a step too far.

The PSA has written to the Daily Telegraph in an attempt to highlight our concerns about their very dangerous reporting but typically, this view has not been printed.

If a person shooting someone in the back can be portrayed as reasonable because they didn’t like the law, what is next?

It is time for our employer, Premier Baird to show some leadership on this matter.

In the meantime, I would ask you and your friends and families to stop buying the Daily Telegraph until they stop trashing the memory of our fellow public servant.
