An Australian man Richard Pusey
has received a 10-month jail sentence for filming and mocking police officers while they lay dying after a crash.
He was pleaded guilty to the rare charge of outraging public decency and judge called his actions as “heartless, cruel and disgraceful”.BBC
The 42-year-old man who is a resident of Melbourne has already been in custody for nearly 300 days, and because of that he will complete his sentence within few days.
“The mortgage broker had been speeding in his car on a Melbourne freeway last year when he was pulled over by four officers.
While they were making his arrest, all four were struck by a lorry that had veered out of its lane.
Senior Constables Lynette Taylor and Kevin King, and Constables Glen Humphris and Josh Prestney died at the scene.
Pusey had been standing a few metres away and avoided the crash, but afterwards pulled out his phone and began filming numerous videos, some of which ran for more than three minutes.
The court had heard that Pusey stood over and taunted Senior Constable Taylor as she remained pinned under the lorry. Experts said she was most likely still alive at the time.”BBC
