The Western Australian lower house has just voted in favour of giving the police the power to search people in Northbridge without justification. I don’t like politicians at the best of times, and this doesn’t help my opinion. Not everyone voted in favour of it, fortunately. One of these people is a Greens MP who has spoken out against the legislation because of the opportunity for abuse. Good, I think. A politician who isn’t a goat-molesting bastard.
And then this happens:
Sure, that’s how you prove you can be trusted with this sort of power, by jumping to conclusions unsupported by the evidence and trying to crush dissent with threats. Way to go, douchebag.
And finally, here’s a big “go fuck a chainsaw” to those members of the general public who are pulling out the same old “If you have nothing to hide there’s nothing to worry about” bullshit to defend the proposed laws.
