Damien O'Connor should resign

If it was good enough for Helen Clark and Cullen to call for Maurice Williamson's resignation over a non-event and for Denis Marshall's over Cave Creek when there was a systemic failure in the department then it is good enough for me to call for the resignation of Damien O'Connor over the death of Liam Ashley.

The long-awaited Corrections report into the death of Ashley, after being assaulted in the van on August 24, details a series of miscommunications, errors and misunderstandings that culminated in the teenager's murder.

The death was preventable, with two vital pieces of information that could have saved Ashley's life not provided by the department to contractor Chubb Security.

So resign O'Connor, resign and while you are at it admit to the rorting you and El Jefe have been involved in.
