A worthwhile petition

A petition from the mother of murdered Police Officer Matthew Hunt:

Petition request

That the House of Representatives urgently amend the Sentencing Act 2002 and Parole Act 2002 to automatically decline parole eligibility for offenders convicted of the murder of police officers.

Petition reason

In memory of killed police officer Constable Matthew (Matt) Hunt, my beloved son. My son lost his life whilst serving his country. If you truly believe what was said by numerous politicians after Matthew’s death that police lives matter passing this legislation should be done without delay. I believe our sentencing laws for murder do not adequately condemn the actions that result in the murder of Police Officers.

I’ve signed the petition and urge others to do the same.
