Yeah, commonly known as the "double tap" , unfortunately we cannot breed out stupidity. So it has to be isolated!!!.

Looks like people can be even dumber than we have experienced here.

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/08/thousands-germans-protest-coronavirus-restrictions-200801161142837.html

Quote
But protesters on Saturday said those restrictions had trampled their rights. They whistled and called "freedom" and "resistance", with some shouting, "the biggest conspiracy theory is the coronavirus pandemic".

Others chanted "we are the second wave".

Few protesters wore a mask or respected the 1.5-metre (five-foot) physical distancing requirement, according to media reports, despite police calling on them via megaphone to do so.

All to with penalty units which are currently valued at $165.22 in Victoria.  I am assuming that the offence carries 30 penalty units

Too many young coppers think the uniform will protect them, but in reality it is a magnet for a punch in the mouth.
What on earth were 2 police women doing working together?

There is the issue, you can’t discriminate, if women wish to be police officers they need to be able to protect themselves wherever possible. I would imagine most coppers would be a little “gun shy” at the moment due to the constant social media atttention. I say they should be able to use whatever force is “necessary” male or female.

Some of the young constables(male) I've seen of late(NSW), I reckon they couldn't fight their way out of a wet paper bag.
They are small in stature, look like they haven't shaved yet.
It all changed in NSW when it was changed from A Police Force to a Police Service.
Just my 2 bobs worth. :)

Agree wholeheartedly, have seen exactly the same thing happen in SA, my brother a serving member of 40 plus years couldn’t believe the standard of some recruits before he retired.

Please, I hope I don't offend serving members,.
They have committed to protecting us, I would not do their job for quids. If I did, I would be facing disciplinary act in the first 24 hours.
I'm all for equality, just that some  jobs, positions are not for everyone.
Yes, I respect the uniform, always will.
Going by what has been posted on social media & in the news, it is there for everyone to see that many others don't.

Our borders are now shut (very soon) to Vics and NSW,s people. Good thing.  Its not about abandoning the southerners...its about keeping this bloody virus under control. Qld tourism is gunna take a big hit...just another casualty.  Hopefully Vic can get their numbers down. Must be gut wrenching for anyone down there.


Hope all the people stay safe, keep well and get through these extraordinary times with good health and not too badly off financially.  EVERYONE is going to feel this for a few years to come. Got kids and grandkids in Vic as well as family in Melbourne.

I got my mother in law slowly dying in Taree and I want to get up to see my Dad in the Redland Bay area.   He tells me to look after my Bride and help her and her family as he is doing okay at present. 

I can appreciate closing the border to those in hot spots but there is a lot of NSW that is not a hot spot, areas that have no cases of COVID 19.   That's the bit that annoys me.   I don't want to tour, just go and see my old man as he hasn't seen family for the past several months and my mother in law has to try dying the middle of it. 
Cheers

Alnjan with your inability to get to see your dad due to border controls, if you want or need anything done for the old dad , sing out, I’m sure I or other swaggers from Brisbane area could help you out.
