Wow, cop making up stuff...
No incident involving Mr Wighton could be seen in the footage, and Sergeant Power admitted: “What I saw didn’t line up with the footage” and conceded he had a “memory issue”.
“What I saw appears to have not happened, and my memory has failed me,” he said.
Mr Bowland accused Sergeant Power of trying to “frame” his client by “inventing” evidence.
“It wasn’t a lie. It’s what I believed happened,” Sergeant Power said and denied misleading the court.
The sergeant later apologised to Mr Wighton in front of the court.
“Sorry Jack, if that’s what happened. I thought I saw something different,” he said to Mr Wighton.
Under further questioning, Mr Bowland asked if it was a “fact you’ve given false evidence”, to which Sergeant Power said it “appeared as so”.
There was a thing called Verballing in Qld up until the Fitzgerald inquiry .
Unsigned confession was good enough evidence for a court .
Cop could type out a confession to a crime , the accused could deny it but it didn`t matter the Magistrate / Judge would come down on the side of the piggies .
