Australia’s police forces routinely lie to us about the value of seized drugs.
This week we learned the AFP busted $1.26 billion worth of methamphetamine, which apparently equates to 3.6 million individual hits of ice. The maths says every single hit of ice is worth $350.
Similarly with the recent marijuana raids in Mullumbimby – 759 plants valued at $1.518 million – that’s $2,000 per plant, regardless of size.
This is deliberate misinformation provided to the Australian taxpayers who fund police operations. So what other lies do they routinely feed us? Can we believe anything they say?
As the thin blue line representing honour and decency, our police must tell the truth or lose all credibility.
