WA Police officer randomly shoots at two Aboriginal women

The level of institutionalised racism in this country is completely out of control! The following story (from ABC news online) is just horrifying: 

“Senior police in Perth say they cannot find any justifiable reason why an officer fired several shots at two women.

Police have launched a high-level inquiry into the shooting which occurred in the Perth suburb of Nollamara yesterday afternoon.

A male officer travelling in a patrol car with two female colleagues fired at least two shots at a black station wagon carrying two Aboriginal women.

Superintendent Tony Flack from Internal Affairs is heading the inquiry.

“Our interim finding, and of course this is without two critical references to two witnesses in that motor vehicle, there does not appear to be any valid reason for the discharge of the firearm,” he said.”
