    First she started the very one sided tenant debate now she is having a go at police protecting citizens on a train.

    Did she start the Facebook campaign thing too? That was absolute trash.
    Isn't there some sort of policy or requirement that politicians atleast pretend to be professional. That's just fuelling social media scum

    Thats crazy. Security on trains is very effective. Pickpocketing on Barcelona metro was endemic but is now down over 80% in the last 3 years due to regular security like this on board, and a vigilante program where locals identify them. I used to be able to spot the pickpocketers all the time, was interesting to watch them, and then make your presence known when they made a move (and get a killer look in return). Now I hardly ever see them.

    Wow. Great attempt to bash greens. Shall we disect the caption or might that interfere with your predetermined world view?

    Seeing that most suburb railways stations are lucky to have a staff member present, I am more than happy to have police on the trains. Would also like to see more of them on the streets.

    The Green's are a joke! What policies do they have to build a better nation? Where is their fiscal backbone?

    I spend a lot of time in forest's and in agricultural area's and never have I seen any one of those druggo scumbag's out there. I've never seen them removing rubbish, helping me to clear noxious weeds, or trying to keep creeks clean. Other country folk that I know also have never seen The Green's in their parts.

    That's because they spend their time in the inner cities posting stupid pictures of our police doing their jobs.

    For example this is clear example of their sport and physical recreation socialist views. There are many big words in there so www.dictonary.com might help.


    The Australian Greens believe that:
    1. Sport and physical recreation are essential elements of the culture of many Australians.
    2. Sport (competitive or non-competitive) and/or physical recreation are necessary for the maintenance of good mental and physical health.
    3. Participation in sport plays an important role in the development of social, organisational and communication skills.
    4. Community-based sporting clubs and associations are an integral part of our society.
    5. Government has a responsibility to ensure equitable access to affordable sport and physical recreation facilities and services.
    6. The staging of sporting events and the building of sporting facilities must minimise ecological impacts.
    7. Unregulated sports betting poses a threat to the integrity of professional sport.

    All very good but what does this have to do with the caption? Police officers doing their job, I guess the Greens would rather have them sitting behind a desk.
    Protest party at best.
    Dangerous if they ever got any real power IMO.

    What does the caption have to do with not having police on trains. Read it.

    I did, you might have to explain your interpretation, and slowly.

    By the looks that cop is on Facebook trolling some monitory groups! I think he's writing "get a hair cut hippy, or I'll taser the **** out of you"
    And that Labrador is going to wee on an endangered miniature bs frog when it gets off at strathfield

    "Spotted on the South Coast line from Redfern by someone who works in our office. Cops with sniffer dogs. And tasers! This kind of harassment and intimidation is exactly what the Greens' bill is aiming to stop".

    Where exactly does it say to remove police? The usage of the word "this" is telling (only 4 letters, easy to understand BTW). "This" refers to the tasers and dogs. Not the police.

    And now lets ACTUALLY (instead of using our incredible imaginations) look at the bill. You know, the bill referred to in the caption. Yes, it is a Greens document, but I hope the retinal damage is only temporary.

    Greens MP Jenny Leong Speaks on Sniffer Dog Bill

    "The Greens believe the current broad use of drug detection dogs in public places is an infringement of basic civil liberties. We are concerned that the use of police drug dogs is an intimidatory tactic, used to discriminate and to create fear. We are also concerned that funding the Drug Dog Detection Program is a highly ineffective use of public money as the evidence continues to show that drug detection dogs do not work. In 2015 the rate of false positives given by dogs averaged 75 per cent. That means that in three out of every four cases the dogs got it wrong, and members of the public were forced to undergo intrusive and humiliating public searches with no drugs found."



    On a side note, lets look at a Greens' policy in Victoria..

    Justice Legislation Amendment (Police Custody Officers) Bill 2015

    "They will not be able to use guns or tasers, but they will be issued with OC spray, batons and handcuffs."

    "They will be empowered to apply an instrument of restraint to a person if it is reasonable to believe it is necessary to prevent the escape of a person or the assault of or injury to any other person."


    Hardly the Marxist threat that is imagined. Anything about "I guess the Greens would rather have them sitting behind a desk." Anything at all?


    This is a general plea to all reading. Please be informed.

    I'm well aware what was being referred to, I was being sarcastic regarding "sitting behind desks".
    The caption shows two police officers standing on a train with a dog, nothing more, no harassment, nothing.
    We'll have to agree to disagree, I have no problem with it providing it's managed with carefully controlled guidelines.
    I think it would make the average late night suburban public transport user feel safer, they have far bigger potential threats worrying about being assaulted or worse.
    I don't know about the figures quoted but even a 25% positive success rate is better than none at all.

    This is blatant intimidation! I want my police to be cuddly and approachable so I have someone to spoon on long train trips.

    Remember safety doesnt matter. The important thing here is how a minority of sensitive people feel and their own narcissistic views that are easily offended. Because if they find something offensive then they MUST be right!

    I, for one, am happy the Greens voted with the coalition to stop party preferences. Hopefully the Shooters Party, the Liberal Democrats and the Aus Sex Party will go down the gurgler.

    @LibGS , please point me to the policies that The Green's are advocating to grow our nation? I'm struggling to see anything that resembles a policy at their official website, apart from the usual rhetoric.

    On the drug dogs, if you don't take or carry drugs then what's the problem? What do you have to worry about? Civil liberties, give me a break! You and your green's mates should go to Syria, Irag, Iran, Afganistan et al if you want to see what civil liberties are about and then start complaining.
