Victoria Police Commissioner Shane Patton has confirmed he has instructed his officers to use live ammunition on anti-lockdown protestors that enter the CBD, in the EZFKA city of Melbourne this weekend.
After criticism for firing on protestors with non-lethal rounds in August, Patton confirmed that after consultation with his advisors from the People’s Armed Police that escalation was the only option. The CBD will be blocked off with sniper nests and pill boxes set up.
“We support the right to protest and democracy in Australia, but if you are attending protests this weekend, you will be shot and you will be killed,” Patton said.
“I’ve been hard at work in the press making threats and having cringe puff pieces about how tough the cops are all week. Make no mistake, if you’re a broke small business owner who has called Lifeline in the past week, we’ll be doing our best to put you out of your misery.”
Patton said officers will be getting double overtime and receiving bonuses for protestor kills and injuries, as well as any taken as political prisoners in accordance with UN Strong Cities guidelines.
