Ronald Priestley, Main Arm.
MP Justine Elliott complains about no further allocation of police to the north coast (Echonetdaily June 7).
Haven’t we got far too many already? Drivers are scared to go out and face the endless road blocks, breath tests, spit tests, secure load and speed checks etc.
Expensive helicopters buzz the countryside in a pointless search for Marijuana in an era when it is being legalised.
Police dogs sniff you in the street and at all festivals.
Maybe Justine should be asking for sensibility allocation of police resources to serious problems like domestic violence instead of campaigning for even more police to harass us.
I have been travelling a lot and there is nowhere in the Western world with the heavy handed police presence we get in Northern NSW. You can drive for weeks in the UK and Europe without seeing p;olice and the UK has a better driving record than Australia.
Is Justine representing your wishes in asking for more police.?
