WA Police officer Terry Bodenham is under investigation over racist comments posted from an account of the same name after a member of the public made a formal complaint to the police.
In a post about the fallen West Coast champion he wrote: “Ben Cousins pleads guilty to a stack of charges … many of which carry penalties in excess of 10 years in jail.
“His penalty — 12 f…ing months.
“Obviously if you’re an ex footy star you’ve been ‘kissed on the dick by a fairy’ when it comes to criminal charges.
“This is absolutely pathetic.”
The comment was posted on the same day Ben Cousins was handed his jail sentence at Perth Magistrates Court on March 28, last year.
