The Tall Man Death and Life on Palm Island Free download Ñ 5 Ginal myths and history and the roots of brutal chaos in the Palm Island community Her stunning account goes to the heart of a struggle for power revenge and justice Told in luminous detail Tall Man is as urgent as Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee and The Executioner's Song It is the story of two worlds clashing and a haunting moral puzzle that no reader will forg. I remember the buzz around Tall Man The Death of Doomadgee when it was published but haven t managed to read it until now This book has given me a new appreciation for investigative journalism and I am convinced that Hooper s book showcases very high uality of this form of writingThe number of deaths of indigenous Australians in custody has been a prominent issue and in 2004 on Palm Island an Aboriginal man Cameron Doomadgee known as Mulrunji was arrested for verbally abusing a police officer Mulrunji was found dead 40 minutes later in his cell with injuries later disclosed as injuries euating to those of a car crash victim The arresting police officer Senior Sargent Chris Hurley was subseuently charged with Mulrunji s manslaughter the first time a police officer had been charged in relation to an Aboriginal death in custody The trial went ahead in 2007Hooper followed this story for three years delving into the lives of the indigenous community in Palm Island the police force within ueensland as well as the inuest findings and the trial Clearly she got in close And it is clear which side she was onDuring the inuest into Mulrunji s death before the charge and subseuent trial another complainant spoke of her own meeting with Hurley By this time the stories of life on Palm Island for law enforcement were confronting Hooper reflects sometimes Hurley can seem like Everyman walking through a landscape where the characters are Death Drunkenness Violence and Despair It seems appropriate to uestion whether the police on Palm Island were enforcing the law or being the law Were these cops also caught between feeling contempt for their countrymen who didn t know the realities of life in these places and a feeling that it would be as Orwell put it the greatest joy in the world to do violence to those who laughed at them those useless abusive men throwing rocks while their children didn t have enough to eat One chapter simply titled The Rally is a short but intense account of ueensland police rallying behind Senior Sargent Hurley when he is charged with manslaughter When a motion is put forward for a vote Hooper observes when the crowd voted they didn t put their arms straight up but held them out at a 45 degree angle It was surreal Several issues bubble to the surface not only racial issues but socioeconomic issues political issues and issues of societal status I felt that Hurley was dedicated and proud of his work in a remote community but did he lose a sense of reality being so disconnected from a larger communityuestions were raised and rightly so about the age old belief that police should stick up for their own regardlessTall Man stands out as not just an account but a reflection of what happened that day and its conseuences even though we will never know what truly happened the day Mulrunji died in custody Writing about Hurley s examination and cross examination during the trial Hooper describes the accused He was like an evasive spirit hiding in the legal cracks The law pretended it could pin him down cut him to size Each new proceeding claimed to be the place where the truth would be known the shadows cast out the bright light of justice triumph Ghosts years delving into the lives of the indigenous community in Palm Island the police force within ueensland as well as the inuest findings and the trial Clearly
