Comment on Briscoe inquest: Alcohol’s ‘flotsam and jetsam’ forever a burden on police? by Fred.

Some general community discussion around the Coroner’s report pertaining to this issue asks why the police are being blamed at all?
It wasn’t the police, system or general community to got themselves in a state endangering Mr Briscoe’s life. It was himself and those who also were involved in the hours leading up to police arrest.
The coroner has basically said that the Australian taxpayer now needs to fund more staffing, systems and resources because everyone except the person/s involved are responsible! For what! To make those in society who blame everyone else for individuals’ actions feel better.
If I walk to the edge of a bridge (drunk or sober) and leap off to my death or serious injury, is it the fault of the community? Of course not! Nothing, no-one, including the law can prevent this because it is my choice, my decision and my actions.
