This is the story how Richard Pusey became a monster

Richard Pusey is neither a killer, rapist or child molester, yet history will regard him as one of Australia's most despised individuals. 

When four police officers were killed on the Monash Freeway on the evening of April 22 last year, Melburnians were gripped in the middle of its first COVID-19 lockdown. 

It was a time when news reports were littered with images of ordinary Australians hoarding food and fighting in supermarkets - a nation divided by fear.

As the sun rose the following day, so too would a new monster who outraged a community already deep in disgust. 

What Pusey did that night has been blanketed across mainstream and social media platforms for the past year as his case moved from courtroom to courtroom. 

The mortgage broker had earlier been pulled over for speeding and only avoided being struck by the killer truck because he was urinating off the side of the road. 

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

While the man who drove the truck, Mohinder Singh, slipped in and out of court with hardly a headline, Pusey would be rightly paraded by Victoria Police for what he did to those fallen officers in the seconds and minutes after the tragedy. 

At Pusey's filing hearing a detective made a point of reading the entire summary of his offences to the court to benefit 'accurate reporting'.

'There you go. Amazing. Absolutely amazing. All I wanted to do was go home and have my sushi,' Pusey said as he filmed Leading Senior Constable Taylor clinging to life. 

'And now you f**ked my f**king car.' 

Victoria Police's then commissioner Graham Ashton struggled to contain his anger at Pusey's behaviour.

'If I wasn’t wearing the uniform of Chief Commissioner, I would give you far more colourful language,' he told reporters.

On Wednesday, Pusey was finally sentenced in the County Court of Victoria. 

With time served, he will likely walk free sometime over the next week. 

Like every criminal that has sat in the court prison dock a convicted man, Pusey has a story dating back to his formative years. 

When Pusey's name began filtering through to reporters the morning after the crash, news editors across Melbourne mocked their scribes for being sold a pup. 

'Richard. Pusey. Dick Pusey. That was not a real name.'

It was a curse provided by his naive parents at birth and it would turn Pusey into the twisted soul he remains to this very day. 

Raised in Frankston, in Melbourne's southeast, Pusey attended six primary schools as he struggled with bullying mostly associated to his birth name. 

By the time he was a teenager, Pusey was already broken. 

Anyone who knocked his name would promptly have their teeth knocked out.  

He would become known among parents in the community as the child with whom to avoid social contact. 

To look back at a young Pusey now, parents might feel some pity for the boy. 

Despite his perhaps justified rage, Pusey was also a hard worker - something that in the years to come would make him a millionaire. 

Mohinder Singh was jailed for more than 20 years for ploughing his truck into the four officers.
