We see a police force bereft of discipline & restraint, & their criminal behaviour is encouraged by the chief of police to protect the ego of the premier.
Please hear the Prime Minister of Australia, Scott Morison telling the world how important human rights are and see how well they were respected in Australia last week.
The Premier of Victoria, Dan Andrews, has been becoming increasingly authoritarian over the past 20 months. He has been using the police to repress political debate, including arresting a pregnant woman and old men for expressing their political views on social media. Unchecked, he is now using the police to repress, punish and brutalise the people for expressing any dissenting political opinion.
Police Chief Commissioner Shane Patton is not merely derelict in upholding his oath of office to serve and protect the people of Victoria, but has been inciting his force to violence against the people. We now see police shooting people and using chemical weapons to terrorise people into silence. We see a police force that is bereft of discipline and restraint, and their criminal behaviour is encouraged by the chief of police to protect the ego of the premier.
Last week, the Premier of Victoria and his Chief Commissioner of Police crossed a line. They let their egos cloud any judgement of what constitutes good government.
A wise leader would recognise that the people need to express their disapproval at their government’s policies. A wise chief of police would have his force directing traffic, making space for people to march peacefully and arresting the odd boofhead starting any trouble. The people would have voiced their opinions, listened to a few speakers, got bored and gone home. There would have been one demo on Saturday and that would be it. This is the Australian way.
Instead, we’ve seen a week of escalating violence instigated by the police who are now intimidating everybody approaching downtown Melbourne in fear of another protest forming.
A wise leader would be reassuring the people that the government is in control of the situation and uniting the people in common cause. Dan Andrews has been instilling irrational fear in the people, is demonstrably out of control, is sowing the seeds of division with policies that intend to institute a discriminatory two-class society, and is using the police to wage war on the working class.
Depriving the rights of one Australian is to attack the rights of ALL Australians.
This is now far beyond the policies of lockdowns, masks, mandatory medication and vaccine passports being used to create first and second class citizens. This is about a Premier who is out of control, ruling by decree and using the organs of State to brutally repress political debate and deprive the people of their rights to freely associate and express their political opinions.
It takes a lifetime to build a reputation and seconds to destroy it. Last week, Daniel Andrews and Shane Patton destroyed Australia’s reputation as a free and fair society.
The only way we can retrieve it now is to remove these evil men from office and hold them to account before the Courts. This action would demonstrate to all future governments in Australia and to the world at large, that when tyranny raises its ugly head in Australia that we have the means and the will to stop it in its tracks and to swiftly remove despots from public office.
The Parliament of Victoria must sack these men immediately for abusing their power, and if the Parliament fails to act, then the Governor of Victoria, The Honorable Linda Dessau must do her duty and act to protect the people of Victoria from a despotic government and a police force that is out of control.
Here’s the truth about the protest by construction workers protesting their union leaders betraying them about mandatory vaccinations.
