    When those who enforce the law are the ones who have new laws created, then it's a police state.

    Australia is definitely a police state.

    2 years jail for kidnapping and sexual assault of a child - A 7 year old girl was kidnapped and sexually assaulted at Kmart. Her rapist is eligible for parole and may walk free in less than 2 years.

    5 years jail if you refuse to unlock your phone or computer - Assistance & Access Bill. It’s worth noting that these powers can be used in the investigation of any crime with a maximum penalty of three years or more. It seems heavy-handed that someone who refuses to comply could potentially end up with a sentence that exceeds the penalty for the original crime.

    They shouldn't be funded at all. However, it's the thin edge of the wedge. What if pensioners got cut off, family tax benefit ... etc. What if economic conditions got so bad that half the population were on welfare? Like the great depression.

    Governments don't create police states, lazy citizens create them through inaction and indifference.

    the last 2 comments have f&^king hit the nail on the head!

    can you imagine something like a world war right now. a lot of the casualties would be people curling up in a ball and crying to death.

    don’t even get me started on hipsters.

    I am really tired of going to cafes and having to watch Ned Kelly make me a coffee.

    I'm lucky being in St.kilda :D
    Apparently the centre of the universe for good coffee :eek:
    I have breakfast at a small family run south American coffee shop , where it's mostly locals .
    I don't do the hipster dives & there's plenty of them around like the hole in the wall .
    Or that joint CK used to hang out in :p

    An even more unforgivable thing about Hipster cafes is that they can’t make a proper pot of tea.

    Next time you order a coffee and hipster is making it, see if you can upset their world by asking for a "Gary Coleman"....aka a short black. See what happens.
