    This is like so many books of the same ilk Hearsay and factually incorrect For example, Bishop says there was no official presence at Tony Murphy s funeral This is wrong Then Assistant Commisioner Paul Wilson gave a glowing official police eulogy testifying to the professional brilliance of Tony and citing his many successful convictions of dangerous criminals Paul Wilson also had a police offsider there, and the police chaplain led the service Fact please Mr Bishop.
