Facebook tags Australian media as fake news for exposing corrupt cops?

Let's just put aside the technicalities that the news article in this post is owned by an organisation called the Nine Entertainment Co Holdings Limited, where the focus is on the word entertainment.

What would be of significance is that the article is from an apparently trusted and verified source.

What would also be of significance is that the article is about police corruption where in this case Victoria Police committed the crime of assault and tampered with evidence.

See post from social media:


The person who brought attention to this action by Facebook also writes:

"So . . . Facebook flagged this post as "spam". Could it be that the "police officers" who monitor my facebook posts and who track my mobile phone as well as stalk and harrass me, have nominated this as spam because they don't like truth and NEWS stories which were published on Nine.com.au and in the Herald Sun about a "thug police" [direct quote from the Herald Sun] officer who assaulted a teenager, deleted evidence and laid false charges against the teen, being spoken about online.

THE INDISPUTABLE FACTS: When I was detained while not under arrest in 2012 by a Mill Park Constable I was charged with assault despite not assaulting anyone. My video recording was deleted by police however my audio recording caused the magistrate to dismiss the assault charges. I beat hinder and language charges in the county court. Since then I have been kidnapped by police on at least four occasions, assaulted, falsely imprisoned and falsely charged several times. I wish that none of this were true however all of it is 100% factual.

The article which facebook removed while saying it appears to be spam is attached, below. George Koromilas, it appears that this police officer got off very lightly for the crime of attempting to pervert the course of justice a crime that carries a maximum 25 year term."


It seems that there are many more issues within Victoria Police that the mainstream media and therefore the 'public' are not aware of.

Are the actions of Victoria Police within the Code of Conduct?



Read the article from 23 Aug 2018 by 9news.com.au of the headline:

Cop jailed for punching teen and deleting evidence



A Melbourne police officer has been jailed for punching a teenager in the face and trying to cover it up by charging the boy with assault.

The victim wiped away tears as he left the County Court after now suspended senior constable Simon Mareangareu was sentenced to 12 months' prison.

The then 17-year-old and his 16-year-old friend were headed home in the early hours of Christmas morning 2014 when Mareangareu stopped and told them they were suspected of committing burglaries and graffiti.

At trial, Mareangareu admitted he had no such suspicion but was just "poking the bear".

The younger boy pulled out his phone and started recording while the officers took their details, capturing the moment when Mareangareu grabbed the older boy by the ear or the shoulder strap of his backpack.

When the teen swatted the officer's hand away, Mareangareu punched him in the jaw, declaring "you f***ing assaulted me ... don't f***ing hit police".

Judge Jeanette Morrish said there was no lawful excuse for now 54-year-old Mareangareu's actions and that he was the initial aggressor.

The teens were arrested and it was only hours later when the younger boy was reunited with his phone that he realised his video of the incident had been deleted.

Mareangareu put together a brief and statements against the boys, which didn't mention his initial grabbing of the boy or the existence of the video.

While there was no evidence he had deleted the footage, she accepted he knew about it and by not presenting it, was covering up his own crimes, risking wrongful convictions for the teenagers and possible grievous consequences for them.

The court also heard Mareangareu blamed the boy when discussing the case with the teen's mother, telling her her son was "fired up and wanted to have a crack at the coppers and lost".

It was only after the younger boy's father hired an expert to recover the video that the real story was revealed and charges against the teens were dropped.

Judge Morrish said she agonised over a sentence for Mageangareu, a decorated police officer who risked his own life twice on duty to prevent suicides and a third time off duty to save a man from drowning.

But his failure to apologise or show appreciation of the harm he caused were aggravating features of his crimes.

Mageangareu was convicted of common assault and perverting the course of justice.

"Your conduct was disgraceful and utterly abhorrent," she told him.

He was also fined $5000.
