Victoria Police decide to stomp on the head of a civilian they’re arresting. What a disgrace. That officer should be charged with assault and sacked. Although he’ll probably be given a promotion in Dan Andrew’s police state. We await the excuses from Chief Wiggum.
You have to hand it to the Victoria Police for making absolutely no effort in trying to politely reason with the people they are trying to arrest. Yesterday, Premier Dan Andrews denied seeing the video of the arrest of a pregnant mother in front of her kids. No doubt he will claim he hasn’t seen this video either. In what world did the Vic Police think a pregnant woman was a flight risk to warrant hand cuffing her?
James Bartolo is the second person in two days to be charged for ‘incitement’ thanks to the police state that is now Victoria. Does the Victorian government fear sedition? Must it crush those who seek to oppose its power trip? Is Dan Andrews enjoying his daily pressers a bit too much?
Bartolo uploaded a video discussing how he intends to go to the Saturday ‘Freedom Day‘ rally and encouraging others to stand up for their rights.
So even though Bartolo hasn’t physically done anything, Victoria Police rounded up a normally law abiding citizen for questioning the very powers granted by despotic politicians that should never have been granted them in the first place.
We would imagine that a growing number of Victorians can’t sit idly by and watch these Stasi tactics continue. This is nothing more than intimidation. If there are protest rallies off the back of these videos, we won’t be in the least bit surprised. It will be a 100% own goal.
Oh, and wasn’t it fascinating to see that Victorian authorities found another 59 coronavirus deaths out of nowhere? Could it possibly be another police state tactic to guarantee that the lockdown stays in full effect come September 13th? Absolutely. Kim Jong Un would blush at the efficiency.
BTW, where is PM Scott Morrison condemning what is happening?
“Dakota tribal wisdom says that when you’re on a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount. Of course, there are other strategies. You can change riders. You can get a committee to study the dead horse. You can benchmark how other companies ride dead horses. You can declare that it’s cheaper to feed a dead horse. You can harness several dead horses together. But after you’ve tried all these things, you’re still going to have to dismount.” – Gary Hamel
This quote summed up Dan Andrews press conference where he deflected on the ridiculous arrest of Zoe Lee, the pregnant mother who was handcuffed by Victoria Police in front of her kids. It was totally unbelievable.
Is it even conceivable that the Premier of Victoria hadn’t been shown the clip by any of his staffers? Wouldn’t anyone with a shred of decency watch the viral video and condemn the heavy-handed incident? Of course not. That is more telling. Andrews couldn’t care less. He has got his 6 months in the back pocket and can ride roughshod over Victorians as he pleases with zero formula to back his megalomania. By then Zoe Lee will be a distant memory.
How is it the police were able to march into Zoe Lee’s house, charge her with ‘incitement’, cuff her while in pyjamas and seize all of her computing devices as if she was under suspicion of storing kiddie porn on her hard drive? It could only come from the laws set by parliament. The police don’t get to arbitrarily make laws of their own and violate basic human rights. We are not exactly sure how Zoe Lee fits the profile of a radical seditionist.
This is perhaps one of the most sinister actions by a political body in Australian history. Time PM Scott Morrison absolutely torches Andrews for this cowardice and keep the pressure on the premier to walk back his nonsense lockdown less have his federal funding suspended. Extortion works both ways, but most Australians would gladly support the PM in this instance.
An innocent 15yo girl was set upon by 8 thugs at Southern Cross Station in Melbourne at midday. They were so proud of their violent actions they then uploaded it to Snapchat.
Where were people stepping into save the poor girl from what was going on? How could anyone witness this and not intervene? Why hasn’t the media televised it? If this was 8 whites on a minority it would be televised for weeks.
Of course, in the People’s Republic of Victoria, the Police say they haven’t got enough evidence to follow.
The girl has broken ribs, lacerations and severe trauma. She worries about reporting them because she fears that nothing will happen to them and they’ll finish off the job. She knows at least one of the perpetrators.
Victoria Police is renowned for its commitment to inclusion and diversity. Who could forget the push for segregated sessions in the recruitment drive? Stands to reason the coppers have introduced the Tesla Model X to the fleet to show “green” credentials. The point of a police car is instant dispatch when required to attend to a crisis situation, from thwarting a terrorist in the Melbourne CBD or rushing to a domestic dispute. It won’t look good when the police have to wait for the fast charger at the base to provide enough juice to make it the scene of the crime. Now that Hazelwood coal-fired power plant has been closed, good luck waiting on renewable energy to charge these cars for practical police use. Don’t be surprised when the shortcomings force a rethink.
What will they tell Victorians? “Sorry, in our quest to save the planet you’ll have to wait another 3 hours before we can attend to your domestic violence dispute. Bear with us. The car is on the charger!”
In 2016, the LAPD bought $10m worth of BMW i3s to show its commitment to climate abatement. Sadly, the cars went largely unused as they were unsuited for police work.
LAPD Deputy Chief Jorge Villegas said of the purchase, “Money well worth it…It’s all a part of saving the Earth, going green … quite frankly, to try and save money for the community and the taxpayers.”
But sources say some personnel are reluctant to use the electric cars because they can only go 80-100 miles on a charge. And the mileage logs we obtained seem to back that up.
From April 2016 when the project started through August 2017, we found most of the electric cars have only been used for a few thousand miles…And a handful are sitting in the garage with only a few hundred on them.
Like this one in service since May 27, 2016, with just 400 miles on it!
That’s an average use of 6 miles a week!
With the monthly lease payment of a little more than $418, this one costs taxpayers over $15 a mile to use!… It just doesn’t make any sense!”
CM one posted this question to someone from the NSW St Johns Ambulance with respect to discussions about EV ambulances. He said unequivocally,
“We have Webasto heaters in our cars in the colder areas. Running off the diesel they can operate 24/7 if needed. If we don’t have them some of our equipment doesn’t work like our tympanic thermometers, the blood glucose reader and then there is the problem of having cold fluids in the car. This is a problem if we are giving these IV because we can make a patient hypothermic if it’s cold. Then there’s just the general environment inside the cab. It needs to be warm in winter.”
That is the point. Emergency services need to be able to operate on call. 5 minutes to fill up with gasoline or diesel means that efficient utilisation and dispatch is guaranteed for at least 500km+.
If end users have to weigh having their lives saved or rescue the planet, it is a no brainer which they will choose. We already know that Tesla P100Ds have done 167,000km in CO2 before they’ve left the factory. “To Protect after Charging” should be emblazoned on the doors.
