Should Some Tasmania Police Heads be on the chopping block?

Pedophile James Griffin had taken his own life back in October 2015, due to being charged with interfering with children, whilst he was working as a Nurse at the Launceston General Hospital, in Launceston Tasmania.

This case has been only made public recently, but today it was reported that the Police had been investigating him for over 10 years. Shouldn't of this Nurse been stood down, when the allegations and investigations started, and with pay, due to a investigation and allegations are just that at the start.

So James Griffin was still allowed to continue in his work, working with vulnerable children, and continue to sexually assault more children. I hope that some action is also taken against Tasmania Police as well, as to me they have failed in their duty of care, allowing a investigation starting 10 years ago, and not pushing for this guy to be stood down.

The system is set up to protect the perpetrator. The police bust their gutses to get to the criminal and the court system lets them down (nearly) every time. This chap was allowed to continue working .....same as a case I am close to. For 4 years a pedophile was allowed to continue on his own way awaiting court sentencing. He had prior convictions and was still allowed to wander the streets. 4 years it took to get to court. The court made the victim a bigger victim by dragging it on for years. Thankfully the case I am close to has just been finalised, but to a 13 year old victim, who is now nearly 18, it was a long, harrowing nightmare of an experience. Who protects our kids?? Certainly not the court system!! Reply

Yes you’re right Shane.. sometimes if there’s no enough funding to solve the case/ crime, they ignore it and keep it in “unsolved case/ crimes” file. It’s always the police Commissioner who decide.
Or maybe Cilly is right, when he knew that the police investigation is getting closer to charge him, he took his own life to save his skin. I feel sorry for the victims.

I wish it had been before 2019. Ironic that he died in the hospital where he was accused of so many crimes. His victims will not have their day in court which to me is very sad as it would mean perhaps closure. Indeed he should never have been allowed to carry on working. Reply

Should have been removed from his job and put on watch. Save taxpayers paying to feed and house this one - he did the job himself. Reply

He must have been very adept at covering his tracks for there to be nothing the police could fully charge him with over that time. Do you think the police were close to charging him and that's why he took his life? Reply
