Look! A terror bust map! OMG they're everywhere down there! Fuck!
And look! A terrorist being arrested! OMG! Fuck! How could these evil people hate us? Just for who we are? Oh the outrage! He must have been about to behead someone! Terror! Terror!
OK, now that the mockery is out of the way....... :)
Oh hang on.......... *takes Valium*
Hmmmmmmm....... So 100 police, it was all over the MSM this morning, great big terror raids in Melbourne. One man arrested. That number again, one. That one man was not about to behead anyone. The police allege that he was supplying money to a known terrorist organisation. Oh really?
I have no idea who this man is, have never met the guy, never heard of him before in my life. I have no reason to defend him apart from a demand for fairness. In that context I would have to remind myself of my own experience of the police in Australia, and indeed in the gay community in recent times over the Mardi-Gras. In all cases the police have trumped up the charges, exaggerated, colluded with each other, eventually reversed in a fair court of law. I personally don't believe much of what comes out of their mouths. I see no reason to look at this situation differently than my own experiences.
Whether this bloke is guilty of what the police allege is to be decided in a court of law, not by the fuckin Lieberal media. In fact, let's just take a look at the police comments themselves about the raids and arrest. It looks to me that they're seriously trying to tell the media to calm the fuck down and stop making shit up:
Today's counter-terrorism raids at seven locations across Melbourne were the culmination of an eight-month investigation based on information provided by the FBI.
"I can confirm that a 23-year-old man from Seabrook will be charged with intentionally making funds available to a terrorist organisation, knowing that organisation was a terrorist organisation,"
"There is no information or intelligence to indicate that this man was involved in planning an attack.
"Nor there are any known links to the 18-year-old man involved in last week's Endeavour Hills incident."
Victoria Police Deputy Commissioner Graham Ashton added that today's searches were conducted in a low key manner.
"We didn't assess there being a significant community safety risk or significant risk to our officers," he said.
Deputy commissioner Ashton also reinforced that today's raids were in relation to the funding of overseas terror activity.
"We just continue to try to reassure the community to get on with their lives and keep doing their everyday business," Read more
