Stop police anti-fashion brutality! sign now

Thanks for stopping by.

A little while ago on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, a totally innocent "punk dressed" citizen was arrested for wearing a studded leather bracelet, which apparently classifies as a CLASS 9 weapon.

To put things in perspective for you, Class 9 includes weaponry such as rocket launchers, heavy anti-personnel weaponry, and bazookas.

Does this seem a little strange to you? The notion that, according to the government, bracelets are primarily lethal weapons, and can cause as much damage as a ROCKET LAUNCHER???!!!

The man, who was not drunk, abusive nor otherwise causing any sort of trouble, was roughly taken in by a seargent who was making a big show to the trainees with him, and this victim of uneccesary arrest is now facing a minimum of $2000 in fines and court fees, and possibly two years imprisonment.

Do we want this in our society? Police who can arrest whoever and whenever they want by making use of obscure and totally ridiculous laws, just to help fill their quota? They've already become a massive profit making industry on the roads with their speed cameras (which seem to have more personnel manning them then there are police on patrol looking for real crimes). It's getting easier and easier for them to pick innocents off the street to score points with their superiors, which is leading towards corruption in the very force that is supposed to protect us from crime.

Don't just let them do it! Sign this petition and show them that we won't stand for this sort of idiotic tyranny!

I thank you again for your time.
