Police out in force ahead of Melbourne’s planned ‘freedom’ protest

There is a strong police presence at several locations in Melbourne, ahead of a scheduled rally for ‘freedom.’

The mounted branch, CIRT and local CIU officers arrived at the Tan Track before 11 am on Saturday, in response to public order.

They also circled Remembrance Shrine.

Victoria ‘s assistant police chief said on Friday that he feels like “a dog returning to eat his own vomit,” having to warn Melburnians not to protest again.

“If people were less selfish and a bit more grown up, we wouldn’t have to keep doing this,” Luke Cornelius said.

“I’m sick of it.”

“Don’t take us for fools,” he said.
