    What is the Western Sydney social experiment?

    I agree there was likely more went on than shown in the video. The copper came out of his car with a lot of aggression and aggravation in his tone.

    It probably didn't help that the driver kept talking over him. Maybe it's cultural differences, but I learned very early to treat the police with the sort of respect one shows a large dog off its lead and not wagging its tail - you just want it to ignore you and move along, so "yes sir, no sir, three bags full sir" is the approach to take. Know your rights of course, but smile sweetly and back away as soon as you can.

    p.s. I'll also offer that 24 year olds are usually not good drivers or listeners! LOL.

    The wholesale mass immigration program that is beyond doubt in Australia and is government policy. It is writ large in western Sydney. This is obvious with any time spent there. At the same time, the public infrastructure is largely traditional Australia - as can be expected. That leads to issues as also can be anticipated and now exploited. Australia doesn't have it as bad as the UK due to several factors such as federated jurisdiction and not being subject to EU dictat on speech.

    With only a very small amount of appreciation of the Afghan police force, what I know of it is that you do as you have learned on steroids. That contrasts the actions of these women interestingly.

    Yes, my understanding also on the police in Afghanistan. I think the attitude of that young woman is probably indicative of the lack of respect for the law, and police generally by some segments of society. She seemed to have a first generation accent and if so, then her talking back and attitude is understandable in the light of that.

    The grandmother on a temporary visa (?), was probably just trying to get out of the way. She likely knew what an interaction with the police meant in her hometown!

    Sadly I did laugh at what a nob the driver was cos if you don't realise there's a police car on your tail over the distance they traveled (Church St Parramatta halfway down Woodville Rd toward Merrylands / Guildford area by the look of the units), then you are a idiot and any cop is going to be right PO'ed. BTW, the police should have booked her for illegal parking in front of a driveway for good measure.

    Was the cop over the top on what they said...on the face of it yes, but we don't know the whole story nor initial reason why they were followed and pulled over.....or why he turned his camera off.

    This area of Sydney (SW of Parramatta) has been home to many immigrants from the middle east and India over the last 2-3 decades and if you drive around there you can play spot the Anglo....Al Grasby inspired multi-culturialism policy at work......a far cry from the embracing of Australia's way of life and values that immigrants from all parts of Europe and many asians have followed post WWII.

    Do the oz police carry guns? I see places in europe where the cops arent armed and they have to wait for someone to show up with a gun if they need one.

    People in the US need to follow the cop's orders during an "interaction". When the "suspect" decides to not obey it never seems to end well.

    Here is what Chris Rock says to do so you don't get hurt by the cops.

    Warning: language

    Morrison is a disaster.

    Dishonest and Short-sighted. Doing nothing and well qualified to do it. I don't expect much from politicians but Morrison is so corrupt and lackluster he couldn't raise a giggle at a farting competition.

    Yes
    And like to shoot people when they think they are in danger .
    Like a guy yesterday who came at them with an axe .Shot dead
    A female cop shot dead a teenager with a butter knife a few years ago .
    IF you'r going to shoot try for the knees .

    And the line " I'm only doing my job "
    IS what the Natzi's were saying

    I read 1984 many decades ago but never thought I'd see this kind of blatant double-speak.

    Simpletons, see what's in front of them and believe whatever it is.
    I know used to call them simple potato farmers.
    But I have been corrected, they couldn't even grow spuds .
    Simple dirt farmers is what they are

    I love ScoMo. He won the un-winnable election and saved us from Bill "Lettuce" Shorten. Without Morrison we'd be neck-deep and sinking fast in Labor's ill-conceived policies.

    Ok, I respect your opinion. Whether I agree or disagree is irrelevant to this discussion, as are my political views.

    Just consider the following hypothetical situation......

    ScoMo passes his laws to be able to outlaw dissenting/disruptive organisations. Then Labour get voted in, and they will eventually.

    Do you think they'll reverse the laws?

    Greens are the worst to win, then labour coz these two will open the borders to foriegn bs refugee scums, then after that is Libs coz they have caused the police state problem and other stuff. The best to lead Oz imo was Frazer Anning with his policies, especially the super tough refugee policy.
