A shocking video from Brisbane shows an elderly man suffering a suspected heart attack when he is arrested by police for not wearing a mask outside while exercising.
The incident occurred in Brisbane Botanical Gardens on Monday while the man was taking his allowed exercise. He had a mask exemption due to his medical condition, but that did not deter the police who arrested him anyway.
The clip shows the man being handcuffed while complaining about his wrists hurting. A woman who is accompanying the elderly man tries to answer the questions police officers are asking about the man’s place of work.
“Absolutely disgraceful,” says the woman as he is led away.
The video then cuts to him having a violent seizure as he appears to suffer a heart attack.
Police remove the handcuffs as the elderly man desperately reaches for his medicine while the woman shouts, “Just let me get it for God’s sake!”
“See, do you believe me now, you pricks!” she states as one of the officers says he is unable to administer the medication (although he’s perfectly willing to induce a heart attack in an old man for not wearing a piece of useless cloth over his mouth).
A final image from the scene shows paramedics attending the scene as the elderly man still lies prostrate on the ground. “Police allegedly joked when he had a seizure that they did not believe he had heart problems that warranted the mask exemption,” reports Rebel Media. “The man’s heart medication was revealed to be in a plastic bag in his backpack.”
An Instagram user called _josephmerlino claiming to be the man’s son posted a message asserting, “My father could have suffered brain damage from this. Permanent injury or death. All for what because of a mask?” "Police are supposed to serve and protect and there is none of that is happening here,” he stated.
The footage once again underscores that thanks to the country’s brutal enforcement of its disastrous ‘zero COVID’ policy, Australia is no longer a free country. Australia have imposed what represents the most draconian lockdown in the developed world, something that looks more like Communist China with every passing hour.
Soldiers on Streets as 25 Million Australians Under Martial Law Because of Just 3 Covid Deaths
Police go house to house to check people are obeying.
Less than 18 months ago, if we'd have been told that Australia, of all countries, would be under de facto martial law we would have thought the idea impossible. But that is exactly what has occurred. Australians have been placed under martial law.
Authorities in Australia have called in the military to occupy parts of Sydney and enforce the country’s latest draconian COVID-19 lockdown.
Thousands of military personnel have been drafted in to patrol the country’s largest city despite coronavirus cases remaining in the low hundreds per day, far lower than other developed nations like the UK that have lifted some of the restrictions.
It is unclear why troops have been deployed but it is not beyond possibility troops will be used to police protesters, hundreds of thousands of whom hit the streets of major cities last weekend to demonstrate against the measures.
People in New South Wales are basically under the most draconian form of lockdown where they are only allowed to leave home for work, exercise and food and are not permitted to venture more than 3 miles from where they live.
Police are going house-to-house to check that residents are obeying the rules, and also using helicopters blaring the message: “This is public health order – do not break rules – you will be found and fines issued.”
On Saturday thousands of police officers also swarmed Sydney, setting up roadblocks in a massive show of force to avoid a repeat of last week’s violent anti-lockdown protests, and Authorities have outlined even tighter restrictions for some worst-affected suburbs, including mandatory testing and mask-wearing indoors and outdoors.
The country is still pursuing a bizarre and unattainable ‘zero COVID’ policy which has led to entire towns and cities being locked down after the discovery of just a single infection.
A sign of things to come?
