Sitting in my local with some friends last year, a story on the evening news got our attention.

A well-known local police officer, a ‘man’s man’ and all-round nice bloke, was facing charges for high-range drink-driving. His lawyer’s defence?

‘My client is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of his work, and his maladaptive coping mechanism was to drink alcohol to escape the pain and distress he has been experiencing.’

The hotel quickly erupted with cynical abuse and criticism:

‘It’s just a weak excuse.’

‘Tell him to toughen up and take responsibility for his own behaviour.’

‘He knew what he was getting himself into when he became a copper.’
