Comment on Repeal ‘paperless arrest’ law: Coroner by Pete Path.

Nice try, Steve Brown.
I see what you did there: tried to conflate the circumstances of a victim not charged with any crime, who was “was not causing any disruption … and at all times he was polite and cooperative”, with serious offenders, murderers and rapists.
Not only quite dishonest, but disrespectful of his audience: the deputy mayor’s venture into the world of political comment is ill considered.
As for paperless arrest, this dangerous new experiment of allowing police to arrest without charge has failed and should be abandoned.

With core values including: “Policies that reinforce traditional Australian values at the time of the foundation of the Country and opposition to policies and practices which negate or undermine these values” it’s a NO from me.
Very surprised at some of those who have put their names to a program that references “so-called renewable energy”.
And “utilise Australian oil” sounds like an open door to fracking. NOT ON.


Police drop MLA’s trespassing charge
Absolutely stunning. I attended last year’s Parliamentary committee hearings of a bill to amend the Water Act, and her contribution was … inadequate.
But this is a whole other level of uselessness.
