In 2011, an article in The Age accused Detective Paul Dale of nodding ?off for a quick power nap ? while a notorious gangland figure escaped from the back of an armed robbery squad car in 1990. Only problem was that Paul Dale was never an armed robbery squad detective, and in 1990 was a 20-year-old junior constable, nowhere near the gangland action. But in Dale ?s case, the media have never let the truth get in the way of a good story. From the moment police informer Terry Hodson pointed the finger at Dale to try and weasel his way out of a life sentence on serious drug charges, the Victoria Police have pursued Dale with a vigour rarely seen. Offering millions of dollars to ?witnesses ? in return for statements, the Victoria Police have yet to convict the former decorated police officer with a single thing. For the first time, Paul Dale tells his side of the story. When you look at the story behind the story, it is almost beyond belief.
