Inside the disturbing new social media accounts of ‘Australia’s most hated man’ Richard Pusey

A Porsche driver who filmed four cops dying on a roadside after a horror truck crash has created disturbing social media accounts to spout bizarre anti-police rhetoric.

Richard Pusey, 43, dubbed ‘Australia’s most hated man’ by a judge, has provoked outrage by creating Instagram and TikTok accounts to post insensitive videos and images about the accident in April last year.

His disgraceful filming of dead and dying police on Melbourne’s Eastern Freeway made headlines across the nation and saw the unemployed property developer serve a 10-month jail sentence.

Richard Pusey, 43, (pictured in October, 2020) has recently several social media accounts that have have left the families of police officers he filmed dying on a roadside severely disturbed

The officers were hit by a truck driven by drugged-up Mohinder Singh who crashed into them while they discussed impounding Pusey’s Porsche after he was pulled over for speeding at 149km/h. 

Senior Constable Kevin King, Constable Glen Humphris, Leading Senior Constable Lynette Taylor, and Constable Josh Prestney all died. 

On the Instagram account ‘The Richard Pusey Show’, a photo of his wrecked black 2016 Porsche 911 is captioned: ‘You don’t need one of these to bend a cop’. 

Pusey refers to himself on the account as ‘The Porsche Driver’. 

‘A story of Police corruption and unaccountable everything. Ineptitude over safety. The perfect person for the resulting blame game,’ the biography reads. 

Since November 24, the account has posted more than 40 photos, each with bizarre captions that deeply disturbed the families and friends of the four officers.  

Also posted on the account is a photo of one of the Highway Patrol vehicles that was crumpled in the horror crash.

‘As I understand it, I believe the police were about to place me into that car. If that was to be the case then the car depicted herein would’ve been my coffin,’ he wrote. 

‘So many flawed procedures. Those four officers were just sent to their deaths.’ 

In the most recent upload, a man whose face has been scribbled out stands in front of a car wearing a t-shirt with the word ‘menticide’ across it. 

The word means the systematic effort to undermine and destroy a person’s mental independence to alter their values and beliefs. 

In an equally disgraceful post, Pusey uploaded a photo of Stuart Schulze, the widow of crash victim Senior Constable Lynette Taylor. 

‘Diabolical act says Stuart who has never contacted me or read my statement,’ the rant begins. 

Since November 24, Pusey (pictured) has posted over 40 photos and videos to Instagram, each with confusing captions that have deeply disturbed the families of the slain officers

‘Sorry to attempt to seek instructions from the last person alive Stuart. Sorry to attempt to ask your wife if she had anything to say to you or your family and then freak out. 

‘Sorry I wasn’t trained is what police say at IBAC hearings after bashing bipolar disorder sufferers but I wasn’t trained in that either.’

IBAC is the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission, the Victorian anti-corruption watchdog.

Pusey also created a TikTok account where he posted a video of him behind the wheel driving on what appears to be the road where the officers lost their lives.

‘Old Eastern Freeway Sunset. Thanks for everyone’s support. Especially those in green. You too are loved #happyathome,’ the video’s caption read. 

The video was reposted to Instagram with the caption: ‘Frightening to see this stops at the site of the crash having been taken God knows when.’

Other strange posts include a video of the 43-year-old playing loud music while doing ‘colour and music therapy’ in his home using strobe lights.

‘PTSD music and colour wheel therapy. Richard Pusey has now been charged by Police for doing this in his own home,’ he captioned the footage. 

Former Victoria Police Commissioner Kel Glare said he thought Pusey needed to be ‘pulled into line’. 

‘He’s got no respect for police, no respect for the law, no respect for the public at large and no respect for the victims of his actions,’ Mr Glare told 9News.

Instagram users have been quick to condemn the infamous Porsche driver in the comments of the posts labelling him a ‘flog’ and a ‘walking whack job’.

Pusey was released from jail in August after serving a sentence for crimes including outraging public decency over his actions after the April 2020 crash. 

He avoided injury after jumping the fence to urinate in some bushes, and emerged to film the scene including close-up shots of the dying officers.

Video showed him repeat variants of ‘absolutely amazing’ and ‘look at that’ while he ‘slowly and purposefully’ surveyed the scene and zoomed in on the dead officers’ injuries.

At one point he said ‘this is f**king justice’ in the general direction of the road as other motorists went past.  

He is on bail on unrelated charges including assaulting police and stalking following a disturbance at his Fitzroy home in September.
