This is an example of why I realised, that it was time to leave Victoria. (The state Melbourne is in, where this happened)
Police for the most part, at an institutional level, can no longer be relied on to serve the public interest. We can primarily hold the War on Terror
responsible for that. Most countries have had laws passed which allow contemporary police to literally emulate the behaviour of Judge Dredd, and so
that is exactly what they do.
I will not hate the police. At the same time, however, I urge all of my fellow civilians to avoid contact with police whenever possible, for your own
safety. They are not concerned with your interests, but with perpetuating their own authority.
