Speaking of exemptions from laws....Victoria's Deputy Police Commissioner is now CC'ing due to threats from criminals....something that is denied to the ordinary citizen. And LEOs here are not usually allowed to have possession of their sidearms when off duty anyway (and certainly not for the purposes of self defence):



Deputy Commissioner Sir Ken Jones receiving death threats






December 15, 2010


DEATH threats have forced one of Victoria's top cops to carry a gun for his protection.

The Herald Sun has learned that deputy Commissioner Sir Ken Jones has received threats at his home and has stepped up his security.

He carries a Glock pistol after months of sinister threats from unknown figures. The western suburbs gangland wars is suspected to be the source of some of them.

It is clear from recent threats that someone knows where Sir Ken lives.

That development has generated deep concerns in the force, with police trying to discover how his address became known.

"It certainly wouldn't have been through the White Pages," a police source said.

Senior police traditionally guard their privacy zealously because of the potential security implications.


It is unclear whether the threats were delivered to Sir Ken in person or otherwise.

Victoria Police revealed in September that Sir Ken had received threats suspected of being linked to gangland conflict between the Chaouk and Haddara families of Melbourne's western suburbs.

It was about this time he was issued with the Glock.

However, receiving threats at his home recently elevated the existing security concern to a new level.

Sources told the Herald Sun there was nothing to indicate the threats were the work of organised crime figures.

The September threats were regarded as "very serious and credible".

They led to detectives scrutinising a veteran police officer after a call to 3AW's Rumour File segment, which said Sir Ken was unhappy in Victoria Police and wanted to return to Britain.

It was reported the wording of the call that went to air mirrored those used in a threat to kill Sir Ken. The policeman's home was raided and his computer confiscated.

An aide to Chief Commissioner Simon Overland also carries a 9mm Glock.

It was issued late last year after high-ranking police sources said he was a potential target for disgruntled crime and terrorist figures.

In 1989, Australian Federal Police Assistant Commissioner Colin Winchester was shot dead in the driveway of his Canberra home.

Mr Overland was part of the police taskforce that investigated his murder.

Victoria Police spokeswoman Nicole McKechnie last night told the Herald Sun she could not comment on the threats against Sir Ken or his security arrangements.

"We don't discuss security issues regarding our police," she said.

The Welsh-born Sir Ken joined Victoria Police in July last year after a decorated career in the UK and Hong Kong.

There has been recent speculation of a rift between him and Mr Overland, a suggestion the Chief Commissioner has dismissed.

Take note I am not saying that he shouldn't be able to carry for self-protection (the two warring Lebanese drug-dealer families mentioned are well known for their viciousness & contempt for police) but the hypocrisy that the ordinary citizen does not have this recourse if they were threatened.

Criminal behaviour sets the benchmark for society
What a pity!! "Sir Ken" has to experience the same exposure to the criminals as all the other citizens. Can't somebody in a more lofty position arrest him for carrying such an "evil" thing as a means of protecting his delicate self?
When officials hide behind special priviledgs that they vehemently deny everyone else, it's time for some serious changes in the way the gov't is run.
