Chris Flannery disappeared and was never heard of again. Has been put down to NSW police also Interesting characters around the time were also George Freeman and Lenny McPherson. Have read a book about this but a long time ago.R Roberson was certainly a piece of work. Mr Kings Cross,Abe Saffron you’ll probably find was his handler too. Most state police here at one time or another will have stories to tell that would make the devil blush
The culture started back in the convict days. Cultures are difficult to eradicate.Not surprising though, look at how they behave on a sports field, the criminal mentality is in them.
Actually got to know Flannery widow when I lived on the gold coast. She was adamant that he was innocent and the cops were wrong. She got one part rightThe culture started back in the convict days. Cultures are difficult to eradicate.
It got worse during both world wars when many Police quit to go and fight, and many rogues joined the Police so they could out of going to war.
That was the case in NZ too, and by 1955 the outfit was so corrupt they sacked the Commissioner, a bible bashing Exclusive Brethren and had a Royal Commission into how to clean it up.
The NZ Police has been pretty good since then.
Who's neckNeddy Smith boasted how he snapped her jugular and that she was still alive when he threw her into the water. I think Neddy Smith was mixed up with Newtown Rugby League and that league player who murdered his wife to run off with the babysitter.
What pissed me off was how Rogerson said she was just a prostitute, like she didn't matter. Slimy bastard.
There was another dude, either an accountant or a lawyer, who got caught up in that web and threatened to go public.Yeah something like that but the outcome was the same.
Flannery wife would regularly turn up at my local and the boys would joke with me about Flannery not being found and he might walk into the bar any minuteThere was another dude, either an accountant or a lawyer, who got caught up in that web and threatened to go public.
Freeman offered to get him off shore to a ship and start a new life. They took his money and threw him overboard, with a weight around his ankles.
