Hey guys had a terrible incident almost immediately after arriving home in Australia, I was in a group of 12 people (all new to lawful rebellion) when we were approached by 2 officers telling us that we were commiting an offence for "possessing" open alcohol containers (none of which were in my hand) after I said I will close it I was promptly informed that wasn't good enough and then responded with the words "it is closed now, yes or no?", I was called a smart arse and then assaulted by the officer in order to be taken downtown for more questions to prove my Identity I simply told them my name was Andy (true) and nothing further needs to be proved because last i checked it was not mandatory to carry id on you at all times,this was met with the unlawful obtainment of my possessions by simple deception and aggression all I had was a bank card on me (which means nothing) and when asked if that was me i responded "no I am just holding that" then I was further surrounded by more police and forcefully lead to the nearest station to be further interrogated, First thing I said was "i retain all my rights and waive none of them" and after further denying that the id was me, they started asking me questions to which i would reply no comment or give a non specific answer and they tried to take photos that i did not allow until they finally thought that they could "identify me" they asked me to sign a "possessions form" to which i replied they are mine i dont need to sign a thing, after being pestered i said " i will sign as a 3rd party on behalf of the defendant" they replied sure so I scribbled two lines and crossed the paper and was then almost immediately presented with a PCN for "possessing an open alcohol container" to which i replied " I do not contract" which prompted the officer to push the form on me and say "now you have touched it" to which i said "you know you cant do that,am i free to go" being met with no reply i walked out, Now i am very concerned that an officer would waste our time and abuse his authority from a simple challenge of words to his ego. I wish to get this man relieved from his position and have all charges dropped against me as I have been treated unlawfully and have witnessed a fraudulent abuse of police power.
I would really appreciate any advice or steps to take in order to promptly resolve this injustice and abuse of power and am contactable on the following e-mail address(apart from the forum) email@example.com
Cheers for the love in Advance
