Yesterday, NSW Police officer Senior Constable Kelly Foster was laid to rest with a full police honours funeral.
Senior Constable Foster died trying to save a woman swept away in the Blue Mountains.
Her actions were heroic.
It’s to the credit of Commissioner Mick Fuller that a full honours funeral was held for this officer.
The entire town of Lithgow shut down as a mark of respect.
Normally the political hierarchy would attend such an event as a statement of support for our police.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian didn’t show up.
Instead, she was nearby in the Blue Mountains on a photo-opportunity bushwalk with green boy minister Matt Kean to help sell his ultra-environmentalist agenda.
Gladys and Kean are left faction buddies and closely aligned with the disgraced Michael Photios - the leader of the left.
It shows her appalling judgement and disrespect towards Police.
Some things will be hard for the ranks to forget.
RIP Senior Constable Foster.
