Stop and Search starts in Victoria


That’s not a knife, that’s a thousand dollar fine!

And it’s the justification for the most serious erosion of civil liberties the State of Victoria has seen in a hundred years.

Tonight the Victorian govts adverts promoting the new stop and search powers went to air. The ads end in the hilariously tongue in cheek tag line, “We will get you!”.

As experience elsewhere suggests, this attack on our rights is unlikely to get at the (grossly overstated) problem of violence on our streets.
