Watch: Aussie Police Interrogate Citizen on His Doorstep Over 6-Month Old Anti-Lockdown Facebook Posts

Multiple videos have emerged online in the past weeks and months showing Australian police doing what they&;ve dubbed &;welfare checks&; on citizens, which has involved confronting people at their homes or in public parks to interrogate them on whether they&;ve broken Covid lockdown laws, or in other cases have attended &;banned&; protests. &;Have you gone to any protest in the past?&; the policeman asked in one video and encounter previously featured in . &;No, I&;m not going to answer that, you guys wouldn&;t be here otherwise,&; the man says. &;I&;d like to know how you got this address, actually.&; The above Orwellian scenario appears to be happening more and more, as the latest shocking and dystopian video to emerge below shows&; In the above video now circulating widely on social media a pair of police arrive at the doorstep of an Australian citizen (precise location unknown) to grill him on whether he attended an anti-lockdown protest six months ago. The police actually pull out a file and show the man printed screenshots of what are apparently his prior social media posts.
&;Do you agree that you put some posts on Facebook?&; the female officer questions. &;Does this look familiar?&; The man responds in the affirmative, &;Yep&; &; to which the officers immediately ask: &;The question that&;s being raised is, &;Were you there?&;&;
The incredulous &;suspect&; breaks out in laughter at the absurdity of police showing up at his door to ask whether he attended a protest six months prior. Naturally he expresses outrage that protesting as a free Australian citizen would be deemed as somehow against the law. The homeowner blasts the police showing up at his door as &;loser-ish&; and &;sad&;&;&;where are we going in life?&; he asks. &;You got the cops coming around here to tell me that I&;ve been in a protest&; six months ago?&
&;Well who gives a fuck? How illegal is that? Going to a protest?&; the man continues as the police press him for answers.
Below is a separate prior incident showing a similar scene of cops interrogating people on their own doorstep&; The police officer informs the man the the protest in question was &;illegal&; &; to which the man points out the rank hypocrisy and silliness of it all:
&;Black Lives Matter protests were fuckin two weeks before that&; was that illegal? You knocking on their doors?&;
&;Maybe,&; the officer hesitates, now nervously on the defensive.. &;No, you&;re not,&; the man points out, and then points out it&;s all about police intimidation. We can expect to see more such Orwellian intimidation tactics as Australia&;s &;crackdown&; on Covid lockdown &;rule-breakers&; continues.
But as recent huge protests which have rocked a number of Australian cities have shown, the police and state intimidation tactics will only result in fierce blowback as citizens finally say &;enough&; &; flooding the streets in defiance of government-ordered &;lockdowns&; in larger and larger numbers.
