    Gees JM, I'm utterly disgusted by what I've just read. You obviously posed no threat to them, you were working!!
    It must have been terrible for Neralee to have to watch this unfold. I would call that outright thuggery. These are the type of police we don't need on our streets, I think some police join the force to help and make a difference and some are just bullies that want the authority.
    I hope you both are ok.
    Take care JM

    Bloody hell! What a story. That’s pretty shocking. As Ian said, under the cover of COVID some cops have been acting appallingly.

    Hope you recover well, JM. Between this and tripping over your own tracksuit pants a year or two ago, you’re having a rough trot!


    This ^^^ is EXACTLY what I’d be doing, and doing it fast.

    I agree 100%, which probably makes you wrong, but all jokes aside it is disgusting. I would look at suing the bastards. Hold them accountable. I wish you a speedy recovery and please come back asap as we will miss you a LOT.

    Of course this would have never happened if you didn’t use your FCA card as ID

    Sure sounds like it but a bureaucracy is very hard to beat even when you are right.

    I've fought the RAAF (secured an honourable discharge with full benefits after I was being falsely charged with conduct unbecoming - thanks to departed father who also tilted at windmills), QLD govt (using banned substance in road construction - I won the case) and HP (defended a colleague against a violent and abusive co-worker, got retrenched and again secured a positive outcome in my favour) so I have a hint of what I'm up against

    I'm appalled by what's happened to you and wish you a speedy recovery and some restorative justice. 3 on to 1 is hardly appropriate, especially when that person is just going about their lawful business during the day, not causing a problem for any member of the public.
    Lawyer up, then perhaps some publicity through the media.

    Hope you get the bastards JM...That’s disgraceful..The days of the Police and Armed forces doing their own thing are gone...There are too many ongoing court cases and they are starting to hold people accountable...I’ll PM you someone to contact that has been through this, having watched his brother pass away with 2 officers kneeling on his neck on their kitchen floor...An upstanding motorsport family with no criminal ties...Mate when you head down this way I’ll throw a steak on for you...

    Did anyone - apart from the cops - get any footage of the incident?

    I'm going down to the centre to see if security have any CCTV or the other stores.

    There was guy in the cafe door who looked like he worked there that saw everything but probably the best chance is the fact it happened next to the tram lines which have CCTV to check for incidences that happen with the trams
