Police apology to stolen generations

Article by Luca Ittimani for The Guardian, 24 May.

Victoria’s Police Commissioner has apologised for the role the force played in the stolen generations over more than 100 years.

Ian Hamm, a Yorta Yorta man and child of the stolen generations, said he “never thought” police would apologise and urged Patton, who critics have labelled “woke”, to embrace the term as a “badge of honour of doing what needed to be done”.
