Australian Police Taser 95 Year Old Woman Using A Walking Frame. She Dies. UPDATE: Her Assailant Not Yet Charged With MURDER Or MANSLAUGHTER.

I live in Australia. To get precise information about the death of a 95 year old woman who appears to be the victim of either murder or manslaughter by police here, I have to go to CNN.

Here is the key info I have gained from a recent CNN report, WHICH I CONSIDER GIVES THE BEST SUMMARY WHICH I HAVE SEEN SO FAR OF PERTINENT FACTS :

“Last week, NSW Police Force Assistant Commissioner Peter Cotter told reporters that police were called to Nowland’s care home in the town of Cooma, New South Wales, around 4:15 a.m. to reports of a resident with a knife.

“At the time she was tasered, she was approaching police. It is fair to say at a slow pace. She had a walking frame. But she had a knife,” Cotter told reporters on Friday.

Video of the incident was captured by two police body cameras but the footage hasn’t been publicly released.

NSW police guidelines say that tasers should only used on elderly or disabled people in “exceptional circumstances.”

Family friend Andrew Thaler said before the incident Nowland was frail and unable to stand unaided. She weighed just 43 kilograms (95 pounds) and was 5-foot-2 (1.58 meters) tall and was suffering dementia.”

Disclosure about myself:

I turned 66 years old last Tuesday.

Last year I was physically assaulted three times by police on the streets of Melbourne. On the third occasion I was both physically and sexually assaulted. (groped – see image above.)

Police who attacked me are putting me on trial.

This is a horrible country to be old in, if police decide they have the right to ignore your rights and attack you.

Just getting a fair hearing is almost impossible.

And why does CNN say what needs to be said better than the Australian media?

Australian Federal Police Officer Charged With Trafficking Metamphetamines, High Level Corruption, Theft And Money Laundering And Then RELEASED ON BAIL

An Australian Federal Police (AFP) Officer, who lives in a suburb about 5 kilometers or so from my place, has been charged with trafficking methamphetamines, high level corruption, theft and money laundering.

The magistrate who has released him on bail did so in part because he has “no criminal history.” (the link to this Melbourne Herald-Sun article is behind a paywall)

The officer deserves the presumption of innocence but the range of criminal charges in a country where wrong doing police officers are rarely held to account seems to make a compelling case for protecting the public from what he might do when set free.

This is happening on my side of town. Approximately half a dozen kilometres from my place

It makes this over-policed neighbourhood feel even less safe to me knowing that he is free.

Who agrees?

Geoff Fox,

Australian Police Taser 95 Year Old Woman Using A Walking Frame. She Dies.

Attacking the vulnerable and elderly and trashing human rights is what police in Australia do best. I have personally witnessed or been the victim of half a dozen police assaults on the innocent in Melbourne.

A 95 year old woman tasered by police in aged care in New South Wales has died from the injuries which included a fractured skull.

The New South Wales police officer faces three charges of assault. Recklessly causing grievous bodily harm. Assault occasioning actual bodily harm. Common assault. Will these charges be upgraded to murder?

In Victoria, police put their victims on trial.

It happened to Cardinal George Pell. He conducted a mass. That was proven beyond reasonable doubt. “Operation Tethering” lead to his conviction and wrongful imprisonment for 404 days.

A police officers fingers go inside my underpants after they pulled me out of prayer at a church.

They are putting me on trial.

This nation is no longer a civilised country.

Men For Freedom # 2 John Stuart Mill

Libertarian philosopher John Stuart Mill died 150 years ago on the 7th May, 1873.

He knew that freedom of speech underpins democratic society because it involves both speaking and listening.

Mill wrote:

“He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them. But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion… Nor is it enough that he should hear the opinions of adversaries from his own teachers, presented as they state them, and accompanied by what they offer as refutations. He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them…he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.”

One of the reasons that the country of my birth, Australia, is now moving towards being a police state, is the Victoria Police, who routinely decide who is guilty and then seek evidence to prove that presumption of guilt without being open to evidence which suggests their suspect is innocent.

They did it to Cardinal George Pell. By

They are doing it to me.

Tomorrow police who assaulted me are putting me on trial. A police officer put his fingers inside the back of my underpants a few hundred metres from the Town Hall and Lord Mayor Sally Capp ignores it.

I will fight for my rights as best I can.

And for justice in the Pell case.

I have to.

As Mill wrote:

“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse ……..

……. A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free …….. “

God Bless Freedom

Sexual Assault By Police On Old Man On Melbourne Streets Ignored By Lord Mayor And City Councillors

In 1953, my grandfather, Ralph Blanchard (pictured above), attended the coronation of Queen Elisabeth The Second.

Last year, on 9/11, when I attended the same queen’s memorial service at St Paul’s Cathedral, I was physically and sexually assaulted by police.

This happened on Swanston Street a few hundred metres from the Town Hall.

The police who assaulted me are now putting me on trial. Trauma upon trauma for me.

On April 6 this year, I wrote to the Lord Mayor asking her to support an independent IBAC (Independent Broad-based Anti-corrution Commission) investigation into the assault. These police cannot be trusted to investigate themselves.

On April 13, the Lord Mayor had not replied so I wrote again including to all city Councillors again asking for support for an IBAC investigation.

Not one replied.

They dont care.

On April 17, the front page of Melbourne’s Herald-Sun newspaper reported “Criminals’ Free Run”.

Will Melbourne Lord Mayor Sally Capp Ignore The Physical And Sexual Assault Of An Old Man By Police On The Streets Of Her Town

My grandfather went to Queen Elizabeth’s coronation.

At the same Queen’s Melbourne memorial service last year, I was removed from prayer at the Cathedral and physically and sexually assaulted by police.

A week ago today, I wrote to Melbourne Lord Mayor, Sally Capp, asking her to talk with me. I wanted her to strongly support an IBAC (The Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission.) investigation. IBAC routinely sends matters complaining about the police back to the police to investigate. That just is not acceptable to me.

My email has not been answered. I went to the Town Hall customer service office for answers and one other Council office that promises to give people with problems full understanding.

Most of her bureaucratic minded staff in these two different offices have fobbed me off with excuses.

One guy said to me he had been told that the email had not arrived but that Sally Capp’s staff told him that I should complain to IBAC.

That was what I wanted, but I need the Lord Mayor’s open backing to avoid the trauma of having police investigate me for a police crime against me. Victoria Police just cannot be trusted anymore.

I am going through hell.

If the Lord Mayor says loud and clear that IBAC should investigate this and not send it back to the police, then I will proceed. Maybe IBAC will listen to her.

Otherwise I am just one more man whose rights can be trashed by uncaring police state shit in Australia.

Geoff Fox, 6th April, 2023, Terra Nullius

(The above screenshot does not show all the sexual assault, the fingers in my underpants, which I clearly felt, rummaging around between my buttocks. But it should show enough to make any decent, kind person be sympathetic to my desperate pleas for an impartial investigation of this sex crime.)

We Shall Return – Thank You General MacArthur

As my life is trashed by police state crap in Melbourne, Australia, I look to certain people to seek a recovery.

The innate systemic goodness of most human beings can defeat the evil which sometimes corrupts this world.

But it takes work.

Together, we shall return.

I revere the leadership towards such ends of General Douglas MacArthur in World War Two.

He took the essential human yearnings for discipline and peace and channeled them for victories from this date in 1942 (when he was recorded making his iconic “I shall return.” promise in outback Terowie) till Japanese imperialism was decisively destroyed.

He had to get past lazy stupidities like the Brisbane Line to achieve his success.

He once said, “There is no security on this earth. Only opportunity.”

God Bless Good Clean Thought.

God Bless Freedom.

Women For Freedom #23 Naomi Wolf

I don’t agree with Naomi Wolf on everything, but here are important ideas from her which I thoroughly admire:

In The Beauty Myth she wrote:

“….. in terms of how we feel about ourselves physically, we may actually be worse off than our unliberated grandmothers.” 1991

She later wrote that sexuality “should be held sacred.” That is her way of what I say with the words “a gift from God.”

In 2008, she described an appropriate channeling of sexuality as being “toward marriage, the bonds that sustain family Life, and the attachment that secures a home.”

In 2021, Wolf said that Covid-19 restrictions were turning America “into a totalitarian state before everyone’s eyes,”

Yesterday, this truly and deeply beautiful Naomi has apologised to the enormous numbers of peaceful conservatives and Republicans targeted by Democrats over January 6.

Can I say, “Thanks, Babe.”?

The God-given human right of freedom of speech says that I can.

God Bless Naomi Wolf.

Police State Crits # 15a Shane Andrew Patton

Hypocrite-In-Chief, Shane Andrew Patton, a.k.a. Chief Commissioner of Victoria Police, says that he wants all police guilty of misconduct out of his police force.

Is the police officer who sexually assaulted me in Swanston St, Melbourne, on 9/11 last year, after police had removed me from peaceful prayerful communion with an aboriginal man in the forecourt of St Paul’s cathedral, still a police officer?

The right hand holds up my clothes. Part of the other hand goes inside my underpants between my buttocks. I have never been more sexually degraded in my life.

All is not well in the police state of Victoria.

May the good Lord protect the people of Victoria from criminal injustice.

The police force doesn’t.

Far too often, they are the criminals.
