Another former Victorian policeman has come forward and backed claims that a 2004 rape investigation involving AFL player Stephen Milne was compromised.

Former detective Scott Gladman was the first to tell Channel Nine that he was pressured by colleagues to drop the rape investigation involving the Saint Kilda forward.

Now his fellow investigating officer Mike Smith has backed Mr Gladman’s claims.

Cara blogged about this at The Curvature, noting that it was a perfect example of a system that encourages police rape apologism and sexual violence and enforces few consequences for it.
