Summary

The NSW Wood Royal Commission into Crime uncovers hundreds of instances of police corruption, particularly in the Kings Cross station. Corrupt payments made to certain police which were then shared around the more senior officers were euphemised as 'drinks'. But they were definitely not talking about milkshakes.--Information provided by Geoff Pryor.
