Official Site
This is the story of the death in custody of Aboriginal man Cameron Doomadgee, who was found dead in the Palm Island police station, his injuries were like those of someone who’d been in a fatal car crash. The police claimed he had tripped on a step. The Palm Islanders rioted and burnt down the police station. The subsequent trial of Senior Sergeant Chris Hurley – who had been decorated for his work in Aboriginal communities – made headlines day after day, shadowed by Queensland police rallying in support. The documentary tells the gripping story of the trial, of the complex Senior Sergeant Chris Hurley (who was acquitted), and of the Doomadgee family as they struggle to understand what happened to their brother.
