‘Indefensible Authoritarianism’: Police In Tyrannical Australia Reportedly Arrest Man For Getting Lunch Outside (Video)

In a video posted to Twitter on Sunday, a man is seen being arrested in Melbourne, Australia, reportedly for the heinous act of getting lunch and a cigarette outside… without a mask.

More insane police overreach in Melbourne. Guy put in handcuffs for being a few hundred metres from his home. Police say ‘he has no valid reason to be there’ & ‘wasn’t wearing a face mask’. He says he was getting lunch & having a cigarette,” the tweet said.

Watch as multiple police officers gang up to take down a man who, according to the poster, simply wants to enjoy his lunch.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

The man even said he had two masks in his pocket.


Several on Twitter observed that we don’t have the entire encounter on video, so anything could’ve happened before this was shot.

However, this is not an isolated incident.

Here’s another video posted the same day:

One person observed:

Even children aren’t free from the abusive tactics:

Then there’s this:

And this:

Twitchy noted:

…[W]hat’s truly scary isn’t the virus but the fact that the police are willing to go to these lengths to restrict freedom over a virus with a 99 percent-plus survival rate.

Keep in mind this is a country that now has covid “camps” and police hunting down “covid fugitives” like they’re serial killers.

What’s next?  Will Australian authorities change the country’s flag to something like this:


The satirical site Babylon Bee responded:

Sadly, that’s probably not too far from the truth.

Exit question: How long before this type of abuse comes to the US?
