It's always difficult to establish the truth if you rely on hearsay but there are degrees of seriousness in the above cases-for example a woman reversing into a car where nobody got hurt is hardly the same as trying someone for murder.

No, but the principles involved are the same.

In the Attorney-General's reference of 1990 they mention bad faith or culpability of the Police. It seems we are still dependent on taking the Police on their word.

Yes, I don't think anyone here is naive enough to believe they never lie.
