The recent Anzac Day anti-terror raids in Victoria brought with them some haunting allegations from the parents of the accused, or said to be accused, of planning the Anzac Day violence towards police.
Children as young as nine were said to have had guns placed at their heads, and aggressive language used by the response group, as they were torn from their innocent slumber.
If this is true, then it leaves me sractching my head in wonder of the intelligence within operational planning of those trusted with protecting our society against terror.
Is the traumatising of families, the children and parents, designed to spread fear in communities, repelling them from attempting, or spawning, future ideals against Western society?
If you speak to the average punter on the street they will tell you that this rampant abuse of minority groups will actually just fuel future angst and hatred towards those entrusted with protecting ‘us’.
There can be absolutly no requirement or mandate of any sort in the traumatising and abuse of ‘our’ children. When this happens, then the average punter on the street too will turn against you. This is not how we want our society to be governed or controlled!
Australia, the Lucky Country?
