read The Tall Man Death and Life on Palm Island Chloe Hooper å 6 review free download Î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB å Chloe Hooper Matic cop with long experience in Aboriginal communities and decorations for his work Chloe Hooper was asked to write about the case by the pro bono lawyer who represented Cameron Doomadgee's family He told her it would take a couple of weeks She spent three years following Hurley's trail to some of the wildest and most remote parts of Australia exploring Abori. I read this book a few years ago not too long after I first moved to Australia but was only reminded of it recently when a documentary was played on SBS of the same name which included an interview with the author This is a moving and relatively unbiased account of the actions leading to Doomadgee s death and what happened soon thereafter It also gives you a taste of the career and character of Chris Hurley and of what life is like in remote communities such as Palm Island To be honest I was still rather conflicted about the whole thing in the sense that I don t think we ll ever know exactly what happened after reading it which I think is a testament to Hooper s handling of the story One thing I did feel pretty strongly after reading it was a sense of despair as there is a big part of me that suspects this was a breakdown of an officer who spent too long in these remote communities Not many officers would want to dedicate two decades of their life to working in remote Aboriginal communities and I do think that his heart was in the right place But what if he had a breakdown What if that could happen again to another officer Reading this book one gets the sense that many people do not believe this was an overt act of racism even if Hurley did cause Doomadgee s death Rather given his dedication to these communities and the heartbreak he inevitably experienced over the years it s uite possible that he just snapped What can we do to stop this happening in the future This story is tragic and it would be even tragic if we let it happen again At any rate I highly recommend this book just don t expect to leave it feeling like you ve got it all figured outNote I read an earlier version of this book The recent version may be worth getting as it might have the most recent developments in the legal cases

A revealing and disturbing look at the difficult challenges facing indigenous communities in out of the way places of regional Australia Largely hidden from the view of mainstream Australia our indigenous brothers and sisters have a dreadful existence I could easily blame them and dismiss the issue as many of us do but that achieves nothing Peter Davis one of the legal representatives of the aboriginal community on Palm Island said towards the end of the book I knew that a blackfella just needed to half look at a copper and he d get arrested Asked by one of the black fellas how they could possibly live their lives like that Davis responded by saying sorry but that was just too big an issue for him to solve We need to keep asking the uestions I for one have plenty of the uestions but I have none of the answers Alcoholism domestic violence rapes paedophilia and drug usage are normal accepted problems within the aboriginal communities And it appears as though much of it is largely unreported This book which has won so many fine literature prizes is a haunting look at the brutal history of Palm Island and in the end while it offers no answers it causes us to take a deep breath wipe away our tears of frustration and sadness and beg for solutions and justice Just a warning if you don t want to be confronted by the worst possible language then choose another book
