The job of the police is to “protect and serve” the people. You remember; the ones who pay their wages. These police obeyed the government. Not the people’s will. Not the LAW. The government. That is totalitarianism. We won’t forget it. Those who forget their past are doomed to repeat it. MH
(Equally applicable to the NZ Police behaviour at the Parliament protests too BTW.)
Sky News host Rita Panahi says Victoria Police wants Australians to “forget” about recent history after two years of “overreach and selective policing”.
“The Victoria Police hierarchy want to rebuild their brand,” she said.
“Victoria Police command wants you to forget about what they’ve been up to for the past couple of years, you know harassing old women on park benches, arresting pregnant women in their kitchens for Facebook posts, enforcing playground bans on children and their brutal response to anti-lockdown protesters.
“Yes, please forget all that and remember they are on our side.”
Ms Panahi said Victoria Police’s public image was “badly damaged” and as long as the likes of Assistant Commissioner Luke Cornelius hold key positions, who she compared to Chief Wiggum, that would not change.
“Police command needs a cleanout starting with Assistant Commissioner Luke Cornelius,” she said.
