This Officer Sen/Sgt KENNEDY was Stationed at Mt Isa and on transferring from Mt Isa to Rockhampton which is 1330 Ks away he took with a Fridge which was the property of the Queensland Police Citizens Youth Club at Mt Isa. The Commissioner of Police Ian Stewart (At the time Deputy Comm) sacked Kennedy, however Kennedy appealed to QCAT a body that hears appeals from sacked disgruntled Government Employees.
The PERMANENT members of QCAT are;- James ALLEN,Adrian ASHMAN,Elizabeth BENSON-SCOTT, Bridget CULLEN, Julie FORD, Susan Gardiner, Patrica HANLEY, Michelle HOWARD, Ron JOACHIM. ADJUDICATORS ARE -: John BERTELSEN,Kate BUXTON, Alex CRAWFORD, Trevor DAVERN, Jeremy GORDON, Michael HOWE, Bevan HUGHES,William LeMass. SENIOR MEMBERS ARE-: Clare ENDICOTT, Kerrie O'CALLAGHAN, Richard OLIVER, Peta STILGOE. These people were appointed by Anna BLIGH-T and her Labor Grub Government before there were thrown out of Office. The Commissioner states he now has a THIEF as a SENIOR SERGEANT in his ranks. Why wasn't Kennedy charged out right with Stealing and thrown before a Magistrate. Stealing in this case is a CRIME. KENNEDY should not be a member of the Queensland Police Service, he MAYBE held up as a hero by some rather dubious junior members. When Deputy Commissioner Bill ALRICH was there,a man who was impeccably honest,very likeable but VICIOUSLY hard on dishonesty this bloke would have been shown the door so fast his feet wouldn't have touched the ground and charged with stealing. Now we have this body of civilians who plays Judge and Jury on matters they obviously have little knowledge about. When Dep.Com AlRICH was there many suspect officers disappeared and when he left the Service was very clean. WHAT HAS HAPPENED?. The Commissioner needs the power to charge dishonest Police outright or refer them to the CMC which is as vicious as the NSW ICAC. If the Officer is convicted he can go through the normal processes of appeal the same as civilians. By the way there are 96 members on QCAT all appointed by that Grubby ex-Premier Anna Bliar.
