Well done to Judge Peter MAHONEY— you moron. Clearly she needed help and yet again the POLICE force failed to help her. Whose pocket are you in.

Judge Mahony found it was reasonable for NSW Police to “do nothing” despite two psychologists in 2006 recommended treatment following the PTSD diagnosis, after Ms Sills understated her psychological problems in an effort to return to work.
When she was identified as an officer at risk in 2009 after attending five serious critical incidents in six months – including a fatal car crash involving a 17-year-old girl and a fatal house fire involving an elderly man – Ms Sills said she was “seeking outside help” in response to a senior officer’s emailed welfare check.
