Letter from a serving member of the state of Victoria Police in Australia

Hi Tommy.

I am a current serving member of Victoria Police in Australia. I am embarrassed by my organizations approach to policing this so called pandemic. Just thought Id reach out to you and let you know that there are many among us that dont agree with this approach and are willing to put our careers on the line to speak out against it.

I am one of those and I hope that by me speaking out it may encourage others to do the same.

Following is the body of an email I sent to Victoria Police Management, yesterday, prior to todays protest in Melbourne.

It may cost me my Career but its a small price to pay in the pursuit of liberty and an end to this current dictatorship we are living under.

Keep up the good work.
