What’s wrong with Australia’s police forces?
A shorter response would be to a question as to what’s right with them.
An example as to what’s wrong with them can be described in a Human Rights Committee report from August 2019 into Victoria Police’s predatory behaviour and sexual harassment and discrimination, where another problem is that this report is the one made for ‘public’ consumption.
What many people see as a systemic failure or a failure of government is literally quite the opposite, as the people in government have designed the laws/rules that govern those actions to be as they are played out.
If you are reading this post you should know that Australia is a colony, (where if you don’t know, it might be to your benefit for you to read the constitution and comprehend it) and the colony’s police forces are subservient to those in government analogous to private military contractors, not subservient to the people as erroneously thought by many.
While the police can and do record interactions with the general population at large, modern technology with the help of slave labour has allowed the general population to afford similar technology at a much more affordable entry point, where that man/woman/child can have a recording of the interaction with police should the police delete their recording if it does not follow their narrative in a court.
‘Social media’ has also allowed people to publish their interactions with police for their own safety in something we call live streaming, so that these interactions can be seen/recorded by others.
A recent social media post highlighted what’s ‘wrong’ with this colony’s police forces.
Contrary to popular belief that Australians live in a democracy, we actually live in a corporatocracy / authoritarian / totalitarian / fascist state, depending on one’s point of view.
This is reflected in the above comment made by police.
The New South Wales police force (the penal colony’s first police force actually made up of criminals, what a proud achievement) quite clearly states without hiding it that people should be afraid of them.
Is that really what the community expects?
Aren’t the police there to preserve the peace, protect life and property and prevent offences?
So, let’s get one fundamental aspect of policing out of the way.
The police do not ‘enforce the law’.
That is the job of the courts.
Let’s take a simple example of the issuing of an ‘Infringement Notice’ in relation to a driving offence.
Say the police allegedly saw you travel through an intersection on a red light or used a device to obtain your vehicle’s velocity, where as a result you obtained an infringement notice.
This infringement notice is an ALLEGATION that you have broken whatever section of the law.
On the back of this infringement notice you have a right or rather a duty to fill in the details in order to take the matter to court as only a court can ‘enforce’ this so called allegation.
In many alleged road offences the police are not a reliable witness, they tamper with evidence, their claims are vexatious and frivolous in nature, or even pervert the course of justice, where the alleged offence should be thrown out, but it’s up to you to ‘keep the bastards honest’ i.e. both the police and judiciary.
The police also act under something called dictation (nullifying any alleged infringements), as seen in a recent video documenting a protest in Melbourne regarding a bus driver’s advertising material posted on his bus, where we obtained information that Daniel Michael Andrews ordered police onto him.
MANY fines have been issued under dictation, where Victoria Police is trying to keep this secret and out of the public eye, where in reality a class action should be undertaken in 2021 to expose this fraud.
So, in your travels ask your friendly cop whether they read the law or just follow orders, but not before you record the conversation as the answer depends on whether you get a deadbeat cop who may assault you.
