ALTHOUGH WE LIVE IN INTERESTING TIMES WE ARE NOT ALONE.
I realise that the Victorian Police Force has had some very poor optics recently. However let’s pause for a moment and put things into perspective. A copy of the article may be downloaded by clicking on:RESPONSE TO POLICE BEHAVIOUR
Not all Police are brutes, not all Police like what they are being ordered to do. Not at all Police use aggressive tactics. Police do not enjoy not being respected. Not all Police are power hungry mongrels. Not all Police are rogues. Not all Police believe they are above the law.
Police enlisted because they believe in doing the right thing, a career, sworn to protect society and assets, contribute to the well being of citizens, a political, follow instructions according to the law, well educated, knowledgeable, skilled and well trained.
They (Police) too have parents, children, families, friends and relatives, concerns, health issues, anxiety, points of view, subject to the same laws as other citizens and subject to the same lockdown provisions when off duty.
Therefore consider all of the above when confronted with any Police that demonstrate unacceptable or inappropriate behaviour in a mature manner.
My advice to unacceptable and inappropriate Police behaviour is as shown below:
Stand your ground
Listen to Police
Find out all the facts first
Obtain video evidence
Seek out a good lawyer
Use the legal system
Make complaint to Police
After a while statistics of Police behaviour creates the groundswell of public outcry. I know it’s difficult but controlling ones emotions is probably the most difficult thing to do. The Police are trained to react to behaviour they believe is likely to cause harm to themselves, yourself and to others.
Not all Police like what they are being ordered to do. Therefore be rational, mature and do not lose your cool or give the Police any reason to detain you. Stand your ground in a mature manner and listen.
REMEMBER THAT WE LIVE IN INTERESTING TIMES YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
