Heavy-handed police give new meaning to the word ‘overkill’

I have just been watching the television footage of the disgraceful behaviour of NSW police at APEC today. Of course, it was inevitable that peaceful citizens would be treated this way.

People do not join the police force unless they are not afraid of using physical force and in this environment it was clear they were whipped up into major drama queen-itis by politicians, state and federal, and presumably were encouraged to be thugs by being permitted to take their identification badges off.

Just what is this country degenerating into? Let us take stock before it is too late.
