One of the leading issues in the recent Queensland election was the abhorrent treatment of Queensland farmers by Queensland Police and their non-renewal and outright refusal of Category H licences for primary producers.
FOI documents recently obtained show that Queensland Police in 2017 refused a record 227 Category H permits, nearly 3 times as many as 2016:
No agenda here.
In true double standards fashion, QPOL are allowed to use their Glocks to euthanize wildlife or injured stock:
And it’s look like they’re proficient at it too:
Yes, you read that correctly, six shots to put down a wallaby. Take a bow, QPOL. Thank god you’re getting semi-auto centrefire rifles.
We put this to Commissioner Ian Stewart on Twitter:
He was then promptly corrected by the public:
It’s this kind of authoritarian arrogance from Australian Police Commissioners that we’re sick of. Hard working Queensland farmers are having their livelihoods made even harder by some Labor ideologues and their QPOL lackies, not the least of which Police Minister turned Judas, Mark Ryan. This is what saw Queensland record the lowest ever primary vote for major parties since 1907.
Of course, there surely are some legitimate refusals in among those decisions, but the increase is staggering. This is purely gun grabbing from the Labor Party as they attempt more civilian disarmament and make things more financially difficult for already struggling farmers.
Queensland farmers should be considering sending QPOL the bill every time they have to euthanize a sick animal.
Watch how quickly the Cat H refusals cease then.
