Summary
Examines evidence in relation to inquests; emphasises records of cases of inquiry as they relate to the role of Queensland police, especially the Native Police, in incidents involving Aboriginal deaths; discusses administrative expectation that Aboriginal deaths be investigated following Queensland's separation from New South Wales; refers to the way witnesses were obtained for inquests relating to the death of an Aboriginal person; suggests that remoteness from surveillance would have contributed to incidents, the number of which cannot be determined; maintains that many reports of fatal shootings of Aboriginal people were dismissed as 'repressive measures'; documents occasions of when there is evidence of Aboriginal deaths in custody; identifies five hundred inquiries that involve Aboriginal people as victims or suspects; looks at percentages of, and causes of Aboriginal deaths in this period; discusses the taking of statements as evidence by Aboriginal people; explains the establishment and primary objective of the Native Police; highlights the rules and set of instructions for the Native Police; gives the number of Aboriginal deaths between 1860 and 1897 in which police were implicated; states that 'the inquest record can never be a guide to the possible scale of killing'; concludes that the inquest was ineffective as a measure of accountability in colonial Australia
