Australian Cops Pepper Spray 70 Year Old Woman in the Face

We have got to remember that all these restrictions by government are because they care about us and they want to keep us all safe. And so we can see the Australian police are taking their job over there very seriously by attacking a 70 year old woman on the street by pepper spraying her in the face while she lay defenseless on the ground after been shoved there by the same guardians of not just peace but health too.

Thankfully this story was widely reported but for all we know this is happening a lot more than anyone realizes.

Here is what was reported on rt.com who are one of the few quasi mainstream news outlets that covered it.

An elderly woman believed to be in her 70s was attacked by Melbourne police and pepper-sprayed while she was on the ground during a protest against Covid-19 lockdowns on Saturday.

As she held an Australian flag and stood on the road facing toward a group of approaching police, one officer shoved the woman, sending her tumbling to the ground. Another officer then pepper-sprayed the woman as she laid motionless and unable to protect herself.

Seconds after the attack – with the offending officers having already moved on – another group of police officers came to the woman’s aid and attempted to help her up.

Videos of the attack from multiple angles went viral on social media this weekend, with many Australians accusing the Melbourne officers of police brutality.
