Incompetent Australian Federal Police Commissioner Mick Keelty and Immigration Minister Andrews have wrecked an innocent physician’s life- but are not in the least sorry- they’re not legally obligated to care.
Haneef is to be released due to the collapse of a totally fabricated case against him. So much for HoWARd’s Tampa, 2007 style.
Keelty and Andrews shouldn’t just be sacked- they should be sacked and deported. Ireland sounds like a good place for those two. They shouldn’t worry; Immigration will pony up a nice packet of cash for those it wrongly deports. Let’s hope there’s some fat compo waiting for Haneef for wrongful detention and defamation.
Maybe the HoWARd gubmint learnt a lesson or two over the hell that the public (assisted by GetUp) can raise over trumped-up terrorism charges. AFP & government do us NO favours by trying to scare us with such garbage. If there’s going to be terrorism in the world, government and law enforcement crying wolf over nonsense like this does the public interest absolutely no favours. No wonder AFP is a laughingstock.
Yep, I’ll try to act surprised. Mind you, the part that REALLY surprises me is that the AFP didn’t have enough on the ball to plant some explosives residue or something unquestionably damning on poor Dr. Haneef.
It’s cool, the government which is supposed to serve and protect us is soon to allow police to be able to take DNA for a traffic infringement and spy on all email and SMS messages. Next time, they’ll be able to charge some evil terrorist with chewing gum in an elevator on Ramadan or something.
Let’s hope that unlucky ‘evil terrorist’ isn’t you or one of your kids. With the investigative skills of the AFP and the desire of this government to whip up fear about terrorism for electoral purposes, it very well could be.
This pathetic, paternalist government which does nothing but perpetuate its own existence MUST GO.
