Can I See Your Papers? Victoria Police are Clueless

Recently there have been incidents of Australians being arrested by Victorian Police for not wearing a mask despite having a medical exemption. This highlights the hypocrisy of current legislation which provides loopholes for VicPol to arrest those who are not even breaking the law. This information is important to know for anyone with a medical exemption as they risk arrest and fines despite not breaking any laws. 

According to the Victorian Equal Opportunities & Human Rights Commission (VEOHRC), “Treating someone badly for not wearing a mask due to a medical condition may amount to unlawful discrimination.” This is fair enough as many people have medical exemptions that would prevent them from wearing a mask and if they were to be discriminated against by shop owners and police then the burden of their medical condition would become much greater through no fault of their own.

When combined with the clear wording of the VEOHRC that “you do not need a medical certificate to prove you have a lawful reason for not wearing a face mask” this clarifies that there is a legal exemption for people with a medical condition from having to wear a mask and saves them from facing unfair discrimination as a result. This is supported by the Victorian Government website which states that “You do not need a medical certificate stating that you have a lawful reason for not wearing a face mask.” This makes sense as asking someone for their medical certificate is not merely only unreasonably rude but can also cause distress and embarrassment. Someone’s medical condition is a private matter that they may wish to keep to themselves and it is wholly inappropriate to force someone to reveal it. Being expected to disclose this information to every police officer you walk past is so clearly unreasonable that even the Victorian Government has recognised this in the law. Given this it is perfectly reasonable for someone with a medical exemption to want to keep that information to themselves and thankfully that right is backed by law. 

The fact that it is perfectly legal to not wear a mask if you have a medical exemption may indicate that those with an exemption are likewise safe from harassment by VicPol. However, there remains a loophole that can be used to arrest and intimidate those not even breaking the draconian restrictions. The VEOHRC also includes the clarification that “Issuing a fine to someone who is lawfully excused from wearing a face mask would not be considered discrimination” seemingly contradicting its other statements about the matter.

So, to put it in plain terms: 

You have a legal right to not wear a mask if you have a medical exemption.

You have a legal right to not have to provide a medical certificate if you have a medical exemption.

However, if the police issue you a fine anyway, this does not contradict your rights.

While this is patently absurd and can hopefully be disputed in court, this means that the police can still harass and fine you even if you are not breaking the law. The line “I can’t prove that you’re not lying about having a medical exception so I’d better fine you just in case” can be used here to circumvent your clear rights. This could potentially mean that those with a medical exemption may find themselves in practice having to endure the health affecting burden of wearing a mask at police request or having to provide proof of their medical exemption regardless of the breach of privacy just to ensure that police leave them alone. 

It is technicalities such as this which allow VicPol to continue to make arrests and issue fines to people regardless of whether or not they have broken the law. While these fines may not hold up in court, this does little to protect Australians from police harassment at the time and make take years to resolve considering how overburdened our courts are with cases such as this.

During these troubling times it is important to know your rights, but also to be aware of the powers which VicPol hold. They have been given virtual carte blanche to act as they wish regardless of your rights, and it is important to remember this when dealing with police. Instead of pretending that we still have rights in this country we must face the reality of the situation and push for change to prevent this abuse of power.

To borrow a phrase from Andrew’s supporters: stay safe. Only it is VicPol and not the virus that you need to stay safe from.

  1. This might not be the most relevant place to share this idea but I want to share it with many people who may take it on board.
    Draw up a sign which will hang from your car or on your back window (without impairing your rear vision). On it write “No complaining; it’s for all our Safety!”
    Then get in a one lane road and drive 20 or 30km’s under what the speed sign says. Drive so damn slowly everywhere, but make sure it inconveniences many, many drivers.

  2. COVID VACCINES – DIRE WARNINGS in this Paper by Seneff & Nigh – damage from these vaccines is potentially catastrophic and transgenerational – and now they have targets on our children.
    The rats will be scurrying from an exploding ship when the population learn the true facts of these shocking experimental covid vaccines – please read these papers – I note today, that already as at 16.9.2021 23,751,922 of these experimental jabs have been coerced/forced on Australians and being mandated for ever increasing population sectors – this grossly violating universal informed consent codes.
    Also Paper from Classen Immunotherapies.

    PLEASE READ THESE PAPERS AS OUR POLITICIANS are incapable of (allegedly) independent and unbiased research as their extreme pro-vaccination lobby involvement/stance proves and allegedly throughout the entire Australian Government Vaccinations Policy is rife with Conflicts of Interest -it’s shocking and they are answerable to no one. Likewise – who in the hell allowed mainstream media empires to be calling the shots and virtual mouthpieces for Pharmaceutical Industry (allegedly) – WRONG WRONG WRONG. They all have to be stopped. Read the Papers – the DIRE WARNINGS.

    Worse Than the Disease? Reviewing Some Possible
    Unintended Consequences of the mRNA Vaccines

    Operation Warp Speed brought to market in the United States two mRNA vaccines, produced by Pfizer and
    Moderna. Interim data suggested high efficacy for both of these vaccines, which helped legitimize Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by the FDA. However, the exceptionally rapid movement of these vaccines through controlled trials and into mass deployment raises multiple safety concerns. In this review we first describe the technology underlying these vaccines in detail. We then review both components of and the intended biological response to these vaccines, including production of the spike protein itself, and their potential relationship to a wide range of both acute and long-term induced pathologies, such as blood disorders, neurodegenerative diseases and autoimmune diseases. Among these potential induced pathologies, we discuss the relevance of prion-protein-related amino acid sequences within the spike protein. We also present a brief review of studies supporting the potential for spike protein “shedding”, transmission of the protein from a vaccinated to an unvaccinated person, resulting in symptoms induced in the latter. We finish by addressing a common point of debate, namely, whether or not these vaccines could modify the DNA of those receiving the vaccination. While there are no studies demonstrating definitively that this is happening, we provide a plausible scenario, supported by previously established pathways for transformation and transport of genetic material, whereby injected mRNA could ultimately be incorporated into germ cell DNA for transgenerational transmission. We conclude with our recommendations regarding surveillance that will help to clarify the long-term effects of these experimental drugs and allow us to better assess the true risk/benefit ratio of these novel technologies.

    COVID-19 RNA Based Vaccines and the Risk of Prion Disease

    Development of new vaccine technology has been plagued with problems in the past. The current RNA based SARSCoV-2 vaccines were approved in the US using an emergency order without extensive long term safety testing. In this paper the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine was evaluated for the potential to induce prion-based disease in vaccine recipients. The RNA sequence of the vaccine as well as the spike protein target interaction were analyzed for the potential to convert intracellular RNA binding proteins TAR DNA binding protein (TDP-43) and Fused in Sarcoma (FUS) into their pathologic prion conformations. The results indicate that the vaccine RNA has specific sequences that may induce TDP-43 and FUS to fold into their pathologic prion confirmations. In the current analysis a total of sixteen UG tandem repeats (ΨGΨG) were identified and additional UG (ΨG) rich sequences were identified. Two GGΨA sequences were found. Potential G Quadruplex sequences are possibly present but a more sophisticated computer program is needed to verify these. Furthermore, the spike protein, created by the translation of the vaccine RNA, binds angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), a zinc containing enzyme. This interaction has the potential to increase intracellular zinc. Zinc ions have been shown to cause the transformation of TDP-43 to its pathologic prion configuration.
    The folding of TDP-43 and FUS into their pathologic prion confirmations is known to cause ALS, front temporal lobar degeneration, Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological degenerative diseases.
    The enclosed finding as well as additional potential risks leads the author to believe that regulatory approval of the RNA based vaccines for SARS-CoV-2 was premature and that the vaccine may cause much more harm than benefit.
