Detective Chief Inspector Fox has many enemies, even within the NSW police force.

In the past two days, he has given evidence to the NSW enquiry into clerical child sexual abuse within the Maitland-Newcastle diocese. Clearly, he was being muzzled by superior officers for some reason. To Mr. Fox, it was because they wanted to protect the Catholic Church. He referred to a “catholic mafia.”

To the police, he was a rogue cop who didn’t follow orders. In particular, those orders were to get off the case, and not to have any further contact with a local journalist who had provided much information from her discussions with victims.

Over the next few days, a string of senior police officers are due to front the enquiry. It can be expected that they will attempt to paint a negative picture of both Mr. Fox and the journalist. This is par for the course in such matters involving whistle-blowers. They always shoot the messenger. In this case, they may miss their mark.

A rogue cop is not one who resorts to the media to get justice for the victims. A rogue cop is the one in Victoria who apparently has recently passed on secret police files containing the identities of undercover police operatives to the Hells Angels bikie gang. In the first example, police are embarrassed. In the second example, police are endangered. The public can tell the difference.

Voices must be raised. It is incumbent on all who believe in justice for the victims not to let the Catholic Church and the culpable people within the NSW police department get away with shooting the messenger.
