    Thank god I don’t have a daughter, and she wasn’t subjected to this. I’d be defending myself from a murder charge.

    Tasmania Police:

    “We may have molested your child, but you should thank us for protecting her from drugs”.

    According to their website their core values are “integrity, equity and accountability”.

    What a joke.

      and I can rip the top of a person’s face off with one swift movement – now add to that my Scottish temperament. You’d have to chain me to the wall before you did that.

  • wiggles

    i thought their job was to protect little girls from child molesters. So now they free passes to fuck the kids too

    A review by Tasmania Police has exonerated the actions of officers who twice strip-searched a 12-year-old girl during a drug raid.

    No drugs were found on her.

    Kevin Sabet, when asked to comment: “They didn’t find any drugs on her and yet they stopped after a mere two strip-searches. That shows admirable restraint on the part of these brave officers. Of course, there are extremists out there who’d say that you shouldn’t strip-search 12-year-old girls. And there are other extremists who’d say that you should continue strip-searching a child until you find drugs, no matter how many times it takes. But these cops were clearly implementing a ‘balanced approach’ to drug policy. And their heroic efforts in this case represent exactly the kind of ‘smart enforcement’ I’ve long been an advocate of.”

    Let’s all be thankful that, after strip searching a little girl, they didn’t shoot her dog in front of her.

    Thanks for saving the children, Public Servant Child-Molesters!

    No wonder their nickname is “Pigs”.
