Jump under the cut! I unfortunately can't find anything on the internet about this, and I've been searching everywhere.
I *think* it was the WA Police Commissioner, but I couldn't be sure. He called a Greens MP (a woman):
- A two-bit politician.
- Said "She had another think coming" if she thought they weren't going to pursue every legal avenue they could.
What did she say? Only the truth. That new Police powers being pushed through Parlaiment by Colin Barnett have the possibility of creating situations where people are singled out for searching because of their skin colour. You know, racial profiling.
He was clearly bullying her and swinging his dick around on air. It was hideous, horrible, and a clear indication of the kind of world we live in. Men allowed to bully professional women on air, to belittle them and minimise their opinions and their work. She is an elected official, she deserves some respect.
He didn't have to use the abusive language he did. All he had to do was refute her and say that they were going to do everything in their power to make sure it didn't happen. I wouldn't believe a fucking word he said, but there IS a way to defend himself without attacking her. This didn't happen.
This isn't good enough. I don't even know where to start, or what to say or do about this. It's fucking shocking.
