Only truth is canceled in today’s nutty, anti-science society. Example;
‘Senior Constable Chris Burson resigned from Victoria Police in April to run for the Victorian senate in the upcoming federal election.
Referring to Covid enforcement, the long-serving police officer and military veteran told Rebel News that he’s “been disappointed how things have gone the last two years”.
“This is not what I signed up for. That’s why I’ve left Victoria Police. You’re getting more and more cops leaving. For example, in my Gazette that just went out, you had 28 cops leaving and only 13 in. So you’ve had a loss of 15, and that’s just in one fortnight, and that’s happening every fortnight.”
Even though the former cop served in both Special Operations and Critical Response divisions, Burston says he was never willing to police lockdown protests.
“I was quite vocal about the fact that I wouldn’t have gone to a protest, so whether that meant they didn’t roster me or not, I don’t know. But I know plenty of police who went sick on those days because they didn’t believe in it.”
Chris Burson says he decided to run for the Victorian Senate with the Australian Values Party because he felt the federal government were missing in action through Covid.
“Every time I go somewhere, it’s because of a law written by some politician. If someone writes a law, they need to understand that at the end of that is some bloke who has to potentially risk his life to defend this paper you’ve just written”.
The Former Senior Constable lashed out at Assistant Police Commissioner Luke Cornelius for his violent rhetoric toward lockdown protesters.
“You can’t have a bloke come out, make a public statement, basically trying to start a fight with people and expect the people on the ground to roll over. If you poke the public, and then they turn up, he’s not there. He can say whatever he wants.”
The now Victorian Senate Candidate says the Australian Values Party will approach all legislation through the scope of the seven values new citizens commit to when becoming an Australian.
“All these people who come to this country and want to live here have to sign up to it, yet politicians don’t have to. So I find it bizarre that they made these seven core values, but they haven’t had to abide by it themselves.”‘ https://www.rebelnews.com/senior_constable_quits_victoria_police_to_fight_for_aussie_values?

‘What started out at the beginning of the week as the ‘stuff of conspiracy theories’ was eventually confirmed by Police.
Australian Capital Territory Policing admitted that they did use a Long Range Acoustic Device (also known as a LRAD) during the Canberra Convoy Freedom rallies outside Parliament House.
A number of wild theories and have emerged online about how the LRAD device was used in Canberra and claims of injury, but the actual effects are well documented.
Reports are still coming in on various injuries at the protest – most relating to what looks like sunburn and heat stroke. There are also clear allergic reactions from what some speculate might be contact with chemicals.
The LRAD device has two modes. One setting turns it into a crowd control tool – also referred to as a ‘sound canon’, ‘acoustic hailing device’, or a ‘sonic weapon’ – and the other mode, which is what was used in Canberra, makes the LRAD a loudspeaker or amplification device to relay messages to the crowd.
A spokesperson for police released a statement to The Epoch Times confirming, “ACT Policing has deployed several types of loudspeakers and amplification devices to quickly and effectively convey voice messages to large, and often loud, crowds of people during the recent protest activity in Canberra.”
However, this confirmation came only after One Nation Senator Malcolm Roberts and Liberal Senator Alex Antic brought up the issue in Senate estimates on February 14.
Malcolm Roberts’ office was inundated with complaints from protesters all week wanting to know what had happened during the rally – prompting him to pass on these public concerns.
“That would be something that is with our police methodology which we would have to look at some type of public interest immunity claim, Senator,” said the Australia Federal Police Commissioner Reece Kershaw, when questioned by Senator Roberts.
“Surely it’s in the public interest to know whether or not they [LRADs] were there without delving too much into it?”
“I’d have to […] If I could take that on notice, I’d have to get advice.”
Senator Antic, who attended Senate estimates virtually, held up a photo of the LRAD device beside members of the police force. Despite the visual evidence in front of Kershaw, he still chose to defer the answer.
“With the benefit of having that photograph which tends to confirm it [the claims that there was an LRAD present], we still can’t confirm that that device was there on the day?” asked Senator Antic, still holding the photograph.
Kershaw insisted that the question had already been taken on notice.
The LRAD was used in Canberra only as a means of communicating with the crowd.
Its use has, however, alarmed many public observers as the LRAD is technically a sonic crowd control weapon that, if used in its other setting, projects extremely loud sounds over long distances to cripple a crowd. The ‘alert setting’ on the device is particularly dangerous and has been known to cause permanent hearing damage, dizziness, disorientation, and brain damage.
Essentially the device ‘chirps’ at the crowd causing pain and potentially permanent hearing damage. Its use on crowds remains highly controversial, with the NYPD ending up in federal court where it was recommended that their use against protesters on the alert setting be suspended.
LRADs have been employed in military settings, such as by the United States in 2004, as a form of non-lethal combat. An LRAD was used against crowds at the 2009 G20 summit in its weaponised mode, causing serious and permanent injuries. It was also reported to have been used against the Occupy Oakland crowd in 2011.
Like a water canon pushes the crowd back with the force of a liquid, sound canons use waves of noise to bombard people. These can be targeted onto specific parts of the crowd.
In the US, it is frequently used on crowds in its loudspeaker mode, as was done in Canberra. Many other countries also employ LRADs for crowd communication purposes.
The Australian Federal Police, Queensland Police, South Australian Police, Western Australian Police, and Australia Victorian Police have all confirmed that they have purchased one of these devices. The Northern Territory and New South Wales police forces did not comment.
LRADs are used in a wide range of settings and by various government departments, usually on its loudspeaker mode. It is also used at runways, solar and wind farms and agricultural operations to frighten animals away from equipment.
The ABC ran a report concerned about the purchase of these devices back in 2016.
‘They can break up protests with loud, piercing sound, but Long Range Acoustic Devices can also cause permanent hearing damage. Australian law enforcement agencies are now investing in the technology, but sound and law experts say their potential use is extremely concerning.’
At the time, Melbourne University expert James Parker told the ABC, “The secrecy of the state around the tools, the weapons that it has and is capable of using on its population is something to be really, really concerned about. It expands the nature of police/state/military authority in a certain kind of way. It makes sound itself part of the arsenal that police and military and state institutions use.”
While there is no evidence that LRADs were used in their alert capacity in Canberra, there is a genuine question about whether or not police would have done so if the crowd was not as well behaved as they were.
The Canberra Convoy – created in sympathy with the Canadian Freedom Convoy in Ottawa – turned into one of the largest protests in Canberra’s history, culminating in a huge gathering in front of Parliament House.
During the day’s events, livestreamers and members of the independent press reported that they had a lot of trouble with their feeds. Attendees also reported poor or no reception for large parts of the day.
This is considered highly unusual, as the area around Parliament House has additional infrastructure particularly to deal with increased loads caused by protests and other political operations – given that it is the heart of Australia’s political landscape.
There are as-yet unconfirmed reports that two Telstra towers went down during the day, explaining why the other towers ended up overloaded resulting in what became a black spot for phones.
At least the Police Commissioner agreed with Senator Antic that – with only three arrests for a very large crowd – the protesters in Canberra were well behaved.
‘Mostly peaceful’ Kershaw agreed, but added that he did not like their attitudes. “Pretty well behaved. A lot of poor attitudes though, but there’s no offence for that. So police did cop a fair bit of abuse, but again, it didn’t cross into the criminal threshold.”
Compared to Black Lives Matter protesters in previous years calling ‘all cops bastards’, displaying artwork featuring burning police cars with the word ‘pigs’ written across them, and demanding the complete dismantling of the police force – the Canberra Convoy was very well behaved during the weeks it spent gathering size in Canberra.
Still, it would be of significant public interest to have a definitive answer on whether or not police had been authorised to use the LRAD in its other capacity.’https://www.rebelnews.com/police_confirm_use_of_controversial_lrad_device_at_canberra_protest?utm_campaign=rb_02_18_2022&utm_medium=email&utm_source=therebel
Another video that tell you what you get when you stand for freedom in Western Australia.
‘Freedom , all in the name of freedom. The presence of the law was over the top in this video. There was no need for an arrest and no need for police at this peaceful picnic until staunch authorities arrived to stomp on the members of public.’
Only a simpleton would think the Government could or would keep your personal data safe!! ‘A shocking data breach has resulted in 500,000 QR code check-in addresses being leaked to a public website where the data could be searched and viewed.
The data involved 566,318 locations collected by the NSW Customer Services Department in what has been labelled a ‘massive and dangerous’ violation of trust.
Addresses were not limited to NSW, and included other states and territories if those businesses or the parent organisation had registered with the government to comply with mandated Covid-Safe procedures.
Some of this data included the location of domestic violence shelters, secrete defence installations – including a missile maintenance unit – power stations, tunnel locations, and private addresses. Pretty much anywhere that people were required to check in to track Covid – which was everywhere.
It is such a serious event that lawyers have called to prosecute the government department.
NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet has admitted that his state government is to blame for the unthinkable mistake, saying that the list was ‘uploaded in error’.
If nothing else, it is a lesson about the dangers of data and the blind faith that the government has asked citizens to have in its handling of information.
The government is set to introduce its controversial Trusted Digital Identity Bill shortly which will collect, collate, and share a frightening level of personal information about citizens. A leak or act of human error in this system would be a concern for the safety of citizen identity far greater than the NSW data error.
Perrottet said that he was only told about last year’s QR data leak on Monday, even though it happened in 2021. It has been referred to the Privacy Commissioner, but the real question is how a failure of security on this scale could be made without anybody noticing.
“That was worked through [the] Privacy Commissioner. My understanding is they were satisfied that the matter was resolved and that information was taken down. It shouldn’t have happened,” added Perrottet.
The government did not recognise its error, rather a technology security specialist by the name of Skeeve Stevens noticed that the data was publicly available and alerted experts who then went on to officially notify the government that they had a serious data security issue.
While the data was online, any one could have accessed it – including domestic abuses and foreign governments which is of particularly concern to the now-public military installations.
“Some of the scary things we were searching – firearms, armoury, federal police and where storage locations were – perhaps someone should’ve thought about what should and shouldn’t have been disclosed,” said Mr Stevens.’https://www.rebelnews.com/qr_breach_exposes_500_000_nsw_addresses?utm_campaign=rb_02_16_2022&utm_medium=email&utm_source=therebel
