Victoria Police is saddened by the sudden passing of Police Dog Yaegar, just a week shy of his 10th birthday.
The ‘Big Bear’ as he was affectionately known was responsible for numerous arrests and location of missing persons. His imposing demeanour ensured, that when needed, the public and other police members felt safe by his presence. Most importantly he was a great and noble partner to Sergeant Bob Carter who says, “he will be greatly missed.”
A very special thank you to the vets and staff at the Monash Veterinary Clinic for their comfort and compassion in making his final journey bearable.

Things have been pretty crummy of late. But on a fly by visit from Sammy, he broke me out of the hospital for some gate leave with the kids. Sam and I were spectators at circus school. The look of achievement in Hammy's eyes as he continues to improve on the unicycle, the pride on Willoughby's face when he keeps three juggling balls in the air for seven catches and the adoring pride and pure happiness on Sam's face while he watches them. These are the moments that make life worth living. XX Connie #nowisawesome
BREAKING: Parliament has just abolished the #RSRT to keep tens of thousands of owner truck drivers on the road and to protect their livelihoods. I have met hundreds of them in recent days. Their determination, their enterprise, their hard work drives our country.
'SHARE’ if you support small business in Australia and back people who like our owner drivers, are willing to back themselves
BUSHFIRES DON'T START IN CARLTON Daniel Andrews AND James Merlino. THEY START IN REMOTE AREAS WHERE THERE ARE NO PAID FIREFIGHTING STAFF! IF METROPOLITAN FIREMEN HAD TO REST LIKE THIS, THEY WOULD GO ON STRIKE!!
I'm sorry I don't have anything happier to share on this public holiday Monday.
But I can't get something out of my head.
For anyone who doesn't know Tara Brown, she was a mother who after dropping her little girl off at daycare was stalked in her car by the father of her child, she called the police but there was no time, in a fit of rage he crashed into her car, trapping her in it and he beat her to death with a fire hydrant cover.
The police call captured the attack including her begging to be left alone and has left officers deeply shaken.
This is all news, it's been reported on heavily. It once again opened our eyes to the catastrophic state that our county remains in with domestic violence. In fact the day after it happened the number of calls made to Domestic Violence help lines doubled.
Whatever violent circumstances made this case high profile doesn't dismiss the actual facts, we lose more then one women a week to domestic violence.
It is terrifying.
Without community support and awareness we will fight a losing battle.
In another sick twist of events 2 days ago I read a news head line that said
"Lionel Patea found text messages in Tara Browns phone and then rammed her car off the road and killed her with a fire hydrant cover.. Tara Brown was seeing another man for months before she was killed"
How is this relevant? Why is this in the publics interest to know?
I'll tell you why, because it victim blames and it allows men to relate to Lionel.
And we live in a world that wants domestic violence to go unspoken, in a world that would run more smoothly if women would just shut the fuck up about it.
Which is exactly what we will do if we don't feel like we will be believed, if we know our private lives will be scrutinised, if we fear the witch hunt will turn on us.
And people believe it did justify his actions.
The moral referees were out in full force with comments on the article like,
"I would do the same"
"I knew there was more to this story"
"Maybe if women would stop dating jerks in the first place"
"Having a partner like that it's playing with fire"
"What do you expect?"
The fact that the were estranged slams these disgusting comments in the face. But it shouldn't have to.
I can tell you she shouldn't expect to be killed, in fact the rates of unfaithful men in this country are more then significantly higher then unfaithful women and you don't see women ramming cars off roads and killing their babies parents.
So what? Once again we can put domestic violence back in our box of dirty little secrets that we don't talk about?
I don't even need to go into details as to why Tara Browns private life had utterly nothing to do with her death. I consider my readers a lot smarter then that.
But I do want to remind everyone that Domestic Violence is not the victims problem, it's not even just the perpetrators problem. It's ALL of our problems.
I'm not going to shut the fuck up.
The media,, the commenters, the neighbours, the entire community needs to behave in a way that extends compassion to anyone suffering.
