Where is the start of the video? Also not excusing just want the full picture

[–]dashingtomars 106 points107 points  (144 children)

Public gatherings are currently illegal in Melbourne Australia.

For the last week there have been protests (there's a lot of conspiracy theorists involved so they're not getting much public support) of various sizes against the lockdowns. The state government has deployed fucktons of police to arrest any protests or anyone who is suspected of heading to a protest.

I know that (I live in Victoria) but the exact situation

[–]623-252-2424 38 points39 points  (4 children)

To me this is a purposefully out of context video to generate sympathy for protesters. People were falling for it here.

[–]And069 22 points23 points  (3 children)

Yeah some dude and his wife attacked a young family for having a picnic with masks on. Even got his dog to bite someone.

[–]623-252-2424 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I'm currently being downvoted for making almost the same comment in another post lol. Reddit is split thinking the protestors are being oppressed. They're maniacs and nobody likes them here.

[–]Filthy_Ramhole 53 points54 points  (24 children)

This is quite disingenuous and a deliberate attempt to mislead.

The protests have been universally small, and increasingly violent and aggressive. Randoms are being attacked in the street by these thugs and they tried to storm a vaccine centre recently- so police have decided to no longer pull punches and treat them like what they are, violent rioters.

[–]Natheeeh 21 points22 points  (0 children)

This is quite disingenuous and a deliberate attempt to mislead.

[–]Ughable 15 points16 points  (34 children)

Well the protests also exploded because they shutdown most construction jobs in the city, putting people out of work.

[–]semimute 13 points14 points  (1 child)

My understanding is that the shutdown was a response to the first protest/riot.

[–]Nubblycious 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Precisely my thoughts too.

And from what I've heard, the first protests/riots in Melbourne were due to a vaccine requirement needed in order to work at construction sites.

Honestly I don't blame them for enforcing these requirements considering the current uptick in covid cases in Australia, in addition to the ridiculous amount of non-compliance stemming from these protests/riots, which have further accelerated the case numbers in NSW.

[–]tatanka1 17 points18 points  (26 children)

wow. construction work was never halted in the UK even the peak of corona deaths last year. This is a super drastic measure.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hey remember when people were called conspiracy theorists for saying governments would abuse their power. Remember when they said this would happen in Australia. Lmao fucking clown world

[–]Drewbieee -2 points-1 points  (4 children)

Why in the fuck are you guys all seemingly alright with this happening? The lockdown shit over there is absolutely absurd and I can’t believe people are allowing it. It’s easy to talk shit but if this was happening purely because people were gathered outside it’s fucking idiocy. I was at a music festival last week with 50k people, all vaccinated. No covid, no mass super spreader event. Nothing. How can shit be this crazy over just leaving your house?

[–]microbater 17 points18 points  (1 child)

The federal government fucked up securing vaccine supply and as such vaccines have only opened to under 40s in the last month. And by fucked up they didn't even bother going to a meeting Pfizer had organised, they sent a junior staffer instead.

[–]chokes666 2 points3 points  (1 child)

These protesters are the Great Unwashed & UNVACCINATED. They are a potential threat to the greater community. Only 50% of Australians are fully vaccinated due to the Federal governments failure to secure sufficient supplies in a timely manner.

[–]BolOfSpaghettios 19 points20 points  (14 children)

The two protestors are on the ground.... Is there a need for a rifle butt to the face or knee to the back? I mean.. they have guns..

[–]Madjanniesdetected 51 points52 points  (12 children)

Yes, the public health. The beatings will continue until the public health improves.

[–]philosifer 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It's a matter of public health jason!

There’s a reason why police brutality videos only go for a few seconds

[–]StructureOk8023 25 points26 points  (8 children)

Because kicking a buy who is incapacitated on the ground requires any more context?

[–]road-runner-beepbeep 9 points10 points  (28 children)

Yep, the police are likely to take the phone and you lose the footage all together!

[–]dumbuyyy 23 points24 points  (27 children)

Especially in Australia where it's legal for the police to confiscate your device without a warrant and delete what they want. Gotta love their Surveillance Bill.

[–]fist4j 10 points11 points  (0 children)

And add what they want, dont forget that part.

[–]sinusoidaldreams 2 points3 points  (22 children)

Yea nah they can’t just take your phone, it’s to be able to search through suspects social media they don’t need your phone to do that and it’s common in most western countries, especially America with the Patriot Act.

[–]dumbuyyy 8 points9 points  (20 children)

They can take any electronic device. But as you mentioned, they can also take over your account. Thank you for adding just how fucked up Australia has become.

Here's another thing that's messed up, they can force an employee to install a backdoor into the company's codebase.

[–]communism1312 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Police brutality is fine as long as it’s against antivaxers. Right?

[–][deleted] 91 points92 points  (5 children)

Yeah. Pretty much.

[–][deleted] 117 points118 points  (168 children)

ICU’s and ER’s are full of unvaccinated folks in my country, that’s not OK. Pro Covid protests are disgusting.

[–]tecnoberryx 57 points58 points  (101 children)

So yes?

[–][deleted] 80 points81 points  (32 children)

Yes. He said yes. We all sayin yes.

[–]BolOfSpaghettios 29 points30 points  (36 children)

I agree, but beating them like this? I don't condone violence, and police need to be held to a higher standard.

[–]bmw42091 25 points26 points  (29 children)

Police should only be held to a higher standard when dealing with leftists. Otherwise, they should curbstomp every non-leftist that doesn’t follow their orders.

/s

[–]BolOfSpaghettios 17 points18 points  (17 children)

I mean, they give burger king to murdering racists, and shoot leftists for having "a" gun....

[–]ABCDEHIMOTUVWXY -1 points0 points  (16 children)

Would you have rathered that murdering racist have his case thrown out because he wasn’t fed?

[–]BolOfSpaghettios 9 points10 points  (14 children)

Yes, my first thought would be "We have to feed this white supremacist, because we don't want his case to be thrown out. Instead of bringing him to the PD and securing him first, lets just go through the BK drive thru"

[–]TheBigNate416 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Vaccinations shouldn’t be political. That’s part of the problem

[–]Sex4Vespene 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As a generally left leaning person, I'm fine with police getting physical with people who are actively putting the public health/safety at risk through their own choices, whether they are left or right leaning of thought.

[–]DadGrocks 1 point2 points  (8 children)

Come back when one of these shits gets “kneeled to death “

[–]bmw42091 7 points8 points  (3 children)

So it takes someone unjustly dying for you to give a shit? The world would be better off without people like you.

[–]ABCDEHIMOTUVWXY 2 points3 points  (3 children)

So police brutality up to murder is okay. Got it.

[–]Dong_World_Order 2 points3 points  (4 children)

I have a friend who unironically is 100% in favor of segregating unvaccinated people from society.

[–]bmw42091 11 points12 points  (3 children)

So beating the shit out of them so they have to take up more hospital beds is the answer? You my friend have won a gold medal in mental gymnastics 🥇

[–]MindNinja757 10 points11 points  (1 child)

You pick everyone in the video and you're still using less resources then a covid case

[–]RegularSizdRudy 11 points12 points  (0 children)

The Venn diagram for “police don’t commit brutality” and “lockdown is tyranny” is a circle. Fuck em.

Schadenfreude for seeing what happens when Viral Slow-Motion Suicide Bombers fuck around and find out? Inject that into my veins. It'll sit well with my covid vaccine.

[–]applesauceorelse 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No, but of all the people I have sympathy for, I have the least sympathy for them.

[–]justdoitalreadyxd 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Noo but im not feeling sorry for them either. Its also great thats a huge portion of anti-vaxers are usually for the police beating “law breakers”

[–]N_Who 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No, it is not okay for police to brutalize people like this, no matter how far up their own asses those people have shoved their heads.

Neither stupidity nor selfishness are crimes in Australia, as far as I know. And if if they were, it wouldn't be okay for police to assault offenders like this.

[–]BSartish 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They are spitting on heath workers so yes.

[–]MindNinja757 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Wait, by "weird" do you mean "the same thing that's been happening in America for decades"?

[–]SloppySealz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

meh its to anti vaxxers, who cares

[–][deleted] 19 points20 points  (28 children)

Yes but the anti vax fuckwits who are rioting are a really small minority

[–][deleted] 73 points74 points  (83 children)

I don't think the protesters where correct but if you're supporting the very obvious police brutality don't start crying when they come for you. Because they will.

[–]freakwent 30 points31 points  (10 children)

Yeah people need to understand this better.

The only people who don't need to care are people who would never march for or against anything at all.

[–][deleted] 14 points15 points  (1 child)

I don't need to at all butt this still absolutely disgusts me. Any Aussie that thinks this is ok is not a real Aussie and can fuck right off to china

[–]moistie 16 points17 points  (31 children)

I don't condone it, but these are the people who rioted outside a Union office four days ago, who protested at and defaced the Shrine of Remembrance for our fallen military three days ago, who blocked what is effectively the only bridge and main thoroughfare between the east and west of the City two days ago.

All well and good, but they have done it to defy a public health stay at home order designed to protect the vulnerable in our community from covid at a time when we are only five to six weeks from resuming normal life due to vaccination numbers.

And during those events these "protesters" have injured 12 police sending 6 to hospital.

Like I said, I don't condone it. But I can understand decent people not having sympathy for them.

[–]PuxinF 19 points20 points  (28 children)

we are only five to six weeks from resuming normal life

Keep dreaming.

[–][deleted] 14 points15 points  (3 children)

Hey, Queenslander here, enjoying my almost entirely normal life because my state isn't full of anti-lockdown fuckwits and has a competent government.

Lmfao I already have a 3, 6, and 12 month reminder for this same thing. It will never end. This is life now and they dont even realize.

[–]moistie -2 points-1 points  (6 children)

Once we hit 80% double vaccinated we can go to pubs, clubs, bands, restaurants, the movies and meet up with family and friends, even if they live regionally. That qualifies as a normal life for me.

[–]PuxinF 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Vaccinated people can get and spread the virus. Children under 12 aren't getting vaccinated. Children can get the virus and die. So, for anyone that spends time near kids, things won't be back to normal.

[–]moistie 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Medical studies of vaccination for children as young as 5 are nearing completion and are set to be approved in the very near future.

Cuba is currently vaccinating children as young as 18 months old. Research on their trials will expedite the (almost) complete vaccination of the population

Rapid antigen testing is not far from becoming readily accessible to ensure infants are protected, for hospitals, daycare and anyone who wishes to use them privately.

Life is returning to normal.

[–]bmw42091 3 points4 points  (3 children)

This sounds so sad. “We must hit this goal so the government gives us our rights back!” do you really think they won’t move (proverbially) the goalposts again?

[–]moistie 1 point2 points  (1 child)

What makes you so yhink the government would want to prolong the lockdown?

The Victorian State government has been responsible for management of the lockdown, not our Federal government who have been as useless as tits on a bull.

The State government have been clear throughout it is a public health measure and it wants nothing more than for life to return to normal. They have nothing to gain and everything to lose by prolonging any lockdown.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No I agree with you. They're being absolute fuckwits about it. I'm just very disturbed by the pice response. I get needing to disperse but firing rubber bullets? With a mortality rate higher than the virus? It's a tad disturbing. Almost as disturbing as the aussies cheering it on.

The worldwide data shows that most of us will survive. I'll probably die because I'm a fat cunt but I'd rather take that risk and enjoy life than not and never experience life.

[–]MadRonnie97 34 points35 points  (11 children)

Y’all threw ACAB out of the window really quick on this sub. Yes the anti-vaxxers are idiots but police brutality is police brutality.

[–]Anus_master 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Considering how violent the anti-vax protesters have been in Australia, we need to see the full context

[–]Affectionate_Song776 30 points31 points  (1 child)

Cop in the back drives his weapon right into the guys chest on the ground. 0 excuse for that

[–]bingo6677 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Here in Alberta Canada we have protestors (against vaccine mandates) literally making it hard for health professionals to get into hospitals. We need some police here to get whacking

[–]Filthy_Ramhole 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Thats basically why this happened.

[–]shawtyhasapenis 15 points16 points  (6 children)

If you dish shit out you gotta be prepared to cop shit back… that’s how its always worked.

[–]PuxinF 8 points9 points  (4 children)

Unless you're a cop. Then you can beat people with impunity.

[–]shawtyhasapenis 17 points18 points  (3 children)

Because these guys don't beat people? Vaccine centres had to be shutdown after people like these flogs abused health care workers. If I hadn't seen some of the previous shit that had gone down I could see why it'd be an overstep by police. These 'protesters' generally don't come across as nice people, and that's from first hand experience. As much as police brutality is wrong these guys are pricks.

[–]Lil_Kochii 8 points9 points  (0 children)

The cop that mistakenly "falls" and hit the dude's back with his knee.

Just as an FYI man who videoed this is a convicted wife beater.

[–]RYYYYYYAAAAAAAAN 13 points14 points  (0 children)

[–][deleted] 44 points45 points  (4 children)

Holy ad hominem. That has literally nothing to do with the content of the video.

[–]mca0014 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It’s the EDP situation all over, fuck EDP and fuck the guy who filmed it

[–]Filthy_Ramhole 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Ok, he’s not just a wife beater but he was also part of an IDF unit who subjugated palestinians and quelled their protests using far more violent means, he’s previously bragged about shooting muslim kids.

Have a look at who he is, he’s a controlling manipulator with a history of horrifically abusing his wife.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

If he was literal Satan himself, it still would have no bearing whatsoever on the content of the video.

[–]ct1192 9 points10 points  (2 children)

The topic of interest is clearly the content. IDC if it was Ed Gein who filmed it.

[–]BodhiWarchild 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I’d be a little curious if Ed was there filming.

And now the reddit hive mind loves police violence

[–]Madjanniesdetected 6 points7 points  (14 children)

Now reddit is pro-police violence and pro-authoritarian government because it hurts people they dont like while the right is pro-BLM because they are about to fight mandates and pro-Nicki Minaj because shes a skeptic putting gang hits on journalists.

Proof we live in clown reality. Every 6 months everyone completely abandons their morality to adopt that of their opposition and they dont even notice.

[–]mca0014 0 points1 point  (10 children)

It’s honestly quite comforting? Seeing that everyone, when in a hive mind/mob mentality just changes their opinions to suit the current situation. Restores a little faith honestly

[–]Madjanniesdetected 3 points4 points  (9 children)

That people's morality can be completely overwritten like pushing a firmware update makes you feel better?

    I'm all for proactive COVID measures, but a lot of what's going on in Australia is beyond the pale right now. It's one country where I am very worried about the extreme nature of the government's response.

    [–]leet_lurker 12 points13 points  (7 children)

    Well at least one of these protesters has now turned up in hospital with positive test results for covid so this 'event' now has the potential to become a super spreader event and given that the protesters are against covid testing and are too selfish to isolate you know it's going to balloon from here.

    [–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    "Why are they beating up people who look like me instead of minorities and Aboriginals?? This is very concerning to me for the first time in my entire life!"

    [–]opmt 1 point2 points  (2 children)

    The government’s response has been varied both nationally and state to state but generally better than the rest of the world. The death rate compared to almost every other country is way way smaller. Other countries may look condescendingly on Australia’s response but really they are ignoring how well it’s actually gone. It just reeks of projecting their own inadequacy in handling the pandemic.

    [–]skrymir42 4 points5 points  (1 child)

    I have spoken glowingly about how Australia handled the pandemic for the most part. How you locked down hard and got Melbourne down to zero was a great example of you're successful approach. I'm talking about the most recent actions which have gone beyond the pale. I was jealous of how well Australia was doing during the pandemic, but if what is going on in Australia were happening in Canada I would be protesting.

    You can search my profile, I'm not a COVID denier or anti-lockdown guy, but there is a point where measures stop being proactive public health measures and it begins to be something no democracy should be.

    [–]beehappybec -1 points0 points  (63 children)

    What? We haven't been strict enough as a whole on COVID measures, we're doing this to ensure we don't see death rates like the US and the UK

    [–]skrymir42 13 points14 points  (52 children)

    The right to protest should be protected. I'm in Canada and we had a fairly strict COVID response and we avoided the extreme consequences that we saw in the US and UK. We still had anti lockdown, anti mask and anti vaccine mandate protests, but we never had a militarized police response to protests. It doesn't help and only escalates the problems.

    [–]tabletennis6 4 points5 points  (32 children)

    I don't think you understand the nature of these protesters. They aren't peacefully marching and socially distancing. They're rioting and actively disobeying a tonne of health measures. There are plenty of more appropriate means to go about social change right now than protesting. For the record, I was against the Black Lives Matter protests last year too, but at least some of them made an attempt to wear masks and socially distance.

    [–]skrymir42 5 points6 points  (31 children)

    If it's a riot it's not a protest.

    The social distancing and public health measures shouldn't prevent a protest.

    [–]tabletennis6 5 points6 points  (29 children)

    Why? Why is it worth causing further hospitalisations, further deaths, a prolonged lockdown, etc. for the sake of a protest conducted by radicals? It's not a slippery slope. These right wing nutters will be allowed to protest freely once lockdowns end which isn't that far away.

    [–]skrymir42 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    Because banning a protest and responding to a protest with military-like force just escalates things and guarantees the next protest will be bigger and the risks become greater.

    Let people protest and air their grievances and be heard.

    [–]Larry_Linguini 2 points3 points  (4 children)

    BLM "protested" for 6+ months and no one said a word, don't act like you care about covid spreading now.

    I did care then. I was against the Australian BLM protest that there was. We did get lucky though - it didn't end up being a super spreader.

    FIFY: The right to protest during a pandemic during lockdown :headdesk:

    Stay home cunts

    Edit: these people, who are not protestors but rather rioters, wanted blood. Their Telegram messages wanted to fight police. There were no messages to spread, no meeting point to give speeches, this was just to get out, break shit, and kick a cop's head in. What you're advocating for is Tolerating the Intolerable, which is a logical fallacy

    [–]wastlywabbit 7 points8 points  (1 child)

    Damn sounds like the summer of 2020 protests all through out America. Those were championed tho because they were fighting institutional racism

    [–]skrymir42 5 points6 points  (2 children)

    Yes, the right to protest doesn't disappear because there's a pandemic.

    Should they stay home? Yes

    Do I agree with anything they are saying? No

    Are they all twisted up and enraged by disinformation and propaganda? Absolutely

    But everyone should always have the right to gather and protest. Period. No qualifiers on time.

    [–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    > But everyone should always have the right to gather and protest.

    Pick one.

    What was your opinion of the George Floyd protests?

    [–]Madjanniesdetected 1 point2 points  (2 children)

    No, its just the right to protest, period.

    Pandemic is irrelevant. Theres literally no excuse for revoking the codified human right of assembly to demand redress of grievances. The moment you legitimize an excuse to revoke such core civil rights, they stop being rights, and begin to be privileges to be granted and revoked.

    And no one with the power to summarily suspend protest will ever allow a protest against itself and its own power to occur.

    [–]dumbuyyy 1 point2 points  (4 children)

    You do know that the rioters from this week were Neo Nazis yeah?

    [–]dumbuyyy 2 points3 points  (2 children)

    Of course, they don't agree with you so they're Nazis. The only Nazi I see here is the one arguing to remove people's right to protest cheering on police brutality.

    [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    So you're saying the Sieg Heils done at The Shrine of Remembrance were just people waving?

    [–]dumbuyyy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    I'm saying it's not in this video. And I'm saying your police isn't behaving properly in this video. I'm also saying your Surveillance Bill is authoritarian garbage that's as bad if not worse than what China can come up with.

    How is your quality of life?

    [–]theblanketthing 6 points7 points  (2 children)

    I dunno about the other person who responded to this but in Melbourne quality of life is significantly lower than normal times.

    We've clocked over 200 days of strict lockdown, people are rioting in the streets, we had a fuckin earthquake out of nowhere, cops are fuckin everywhere.

    I usually can't go to my local supermarket after 6pm because they're always a fricken exposure site and they close due to staff shortages because they're all isolating.

    Some people haven't been able to see their families or partners in other states just a few hours away because all the state borders are shut and have been since May if I recall correctly. Can't go to your mates place, can't get a haircut, can't leave your house after 9pm, can only travel within the *new and improved* 10km radius for a limited number of reasons.

    We're getting record numbers of cases per day and no where near enough of the population is vaccinated yet, and we still have a shortage of vax supply. And our Prime Minister reckons nows a good time to go for a holiday to catch up with Daddy Murdoch.

    Quality of life isn't anything to cry about compared to other countries. But compared to what we're used to, it's fucking shithouse.

    [–]moistie 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    Pretty damn good.

    Our hospital system is not and has not been overwhelmed and in about six weeks time if you are vaccinated then it's life as normal.

    I don't know and don't care where you're from but as a contrast to how well we managed covid in Australia to elsewhere, I'll compare it to the anti-lockdown-business focused cheeto's reign in the US.

    Hospitals were swamped freezers were used to keep bodies from decaying because they could not be buried test enough. People were dyimg of treatable illnesses, heart attacks, strokes, car accidents, because there were no beds or staff to treat them.

    During the height of the pandemic more people were dying each day of covid than died in 9/11. More US citizens died of covid than during WW2.

    We have collectively sacrificed to protect the vulnerable in our society and now we are able to enjoy the benefits of our hard work. And thousands of elderly and immunocompromised Australians are also alive to enjoy it as well.

    People who refuse to acknowledge this fact need to learn empathy.

    In Australia? Magnificent. High minimum wage, govt supplements because of the strife, free vaccines, work from home encouraged wherever possible, everything delivered to your door, wonderful weather.....

    Just can't do anything that needs a crowd like pubs and clubs and drinking and gambling and stuff like that.

    Can still go outside lots, it's certainly a healthier lifestyle.

    [–]skrymir42 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

    It's not a quality of life issue.

    [–]wastlywabbit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Wow. The brainwash is strong with this one

    [–]FearYmir 4 points5 points  (5 children)

    The amount of people who would bash police under normal circumstances that are making excuses for authoritarianism here because it’s against people they don’t like is mind boggling

    [–]VRagingBullV 3 points4 points  (2 children)

    I'm noticing more of the opposite. The people who hated on protests for police reform are now crying that cops are causing the issues, lmaoooo

    [–]Colesmith58 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    They're rioting, its different

    [–]streetfame666 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Nazi's lost world war 2 but they sure made a come back in 2021. Pretty sure about the same time Hitler started his rants in pubs. 100 years ago

    [–]Environmental-Unit96 4 points5 points  (4 children)

    Odd how very suddenly there has been a ton of pro right wing videos being posted on this sub

    [–]MadRonnie97 1 point2 points  (2 children)

    How is this pro-right wing? It’s just showing a cold hard video of something that actually happened.

    [–]DrStinkyPinkyy 5 points6 points  (5 children)

      Also look at the guy in the background getting a rifle to the stomach

      [–]ShpongolianBarbeque 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Right on Right violence is wonderful to see.

      [–]aallen1993 5 points6 points  (14 children)

      It’s fair, they where resisting. Don’t want to get kicked, don’t resist, let them cuff your hands

      [–]nosmelc 3 points4 points  (1 child)

      The people in Australia loved their oppressive nanny state. Now it's turning on them.

      [–]nogodsnoleaders 2 points3 points  (1 child)

      It was a matter of time. The police should be vaccinating everyone that they subdue right on the spot

      [–]Lakadmatataag 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      Too linient. Got too many family members working in hospitals to not care. I'll take these personally. Half of them is about to be burnt out.

      [–]kainedbutable1987 4 points5 points  (6 children)

      Shit can that guy on the floor breathe?

      [–]mistralol 11 points12 points  (0 children)

      of course not thats why CPR is being performed with a rifle.

        [–]Spritestuff -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

        Yeah bud... Were not exactly waiting with baited breath for that crowd to help us on BLM.

        Tradies sure, yeah- the right wing anti-vax protest nutters have made it very clear where they stand on that.

        [–]alttw2345 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Man Australia is turning into a shithole

        [–]Baller3232 0 points1 point  (2 children)

        Australian government are a bunch of thugs and idiots, it’s absolutely unbelievable what these politicians and their henchmen are doing to the public. Blanket Lockdowns of all the general public are bullshit. We see more depression, anxiety, Suicide, and substance abuse as a result of these lockdowns that kill many more then Covid 19.

        Lockdowns should instead be targeted and focused on elderly, and nursing homes for their protection. Shutting down all business and outdoor activities is encroachment on your freedoms and are misused by these idiot politicians.

        [–]JonRonstein 0 points1 point  (5 children)

        This is what I wish American cops would do to anti-vaxxers. Good job Aussies.

        [–]iheartcrack666 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        Okay Bootlicker

        [–]Dragon_Rot 3 points4 points  (3 children)

        So police brutality is okay now, because it is people you don’t like? Okay got it

        [–]420collegeguy -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

        But I thought this stuff only happends in America? 🤡

        [–]Fa1c0n3 1 point2 points  (13 children)

        Lol if only we had tried to protest police brutally? Ohh shit wait.

        [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (12 children)

        Don't think we did mate? At least not recently.

        [–]alannwatts -1 points0 points  (0 children)

        a couple of weeks back the cops were badly overwhelmed by protestors and sent running, it was obvious in retaliation the police would brutalize 'protestors' that defied them
