I’m starting to get very tired of hearing and seeing the tough stance on violence against women that the Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Ken Lay is jumping up and down about. Since this new mantra of VicPol has made headlines, on a regular basis, news of quite the opposite keeps reaching me.

Lazy police officers conducting lazy inquiries resulting in minimal prosecutions. “We get 20 of these kind of calls each shift”, is the most common grumble of a copper attending domestic-related violence. Oh, really? Okay then, well just do what you have to do, to cover your ass as per the VicPol manual, and forget about it.

Jesus wept and my blood boils. Because this is exactly what happens in the real world, folks.

It would be refreshing to see him actually follow through, similar to what he’s done with his “war” against motorcycle clubs. Anti-association laws? Give me a fucking break. If any individual breaks the law, biker or not, then throw the book at them hard. But to declare war on people who choose to associate with each other, while ignoring the cowards who bash their women and children black and blue behind closed doors, is the most absurd notion of policing priorities, I’ve ever come across.

Commissioner Lay, the parasites who abuse their children and beat their women in the privacy of homes, is not only a more critical and urgent policing matter, but also a much more extreme and dangerous threat to the fabric of a healthy society.

Calm down with the “bikie” antics, admittedly, in part as a response to media scare tactics, and perhaps put the same energy into kicking down the doors of dysfunctional sociopaths who are brutally harming our most precious and vulnerable.

About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
