Sky News host Rita Panahi says there needs to be a “reckoning” for the Victorian police as they try to rebuild their image following Melbourne's lockdowns and protests.
“Victoria Police is again trying to rebuild their image after enthusiastically serving as Dan Andrews covid enforcers for two years,” she said
“Where they terrorised pregnant women for Facebook posts, harassed little old ladies on park benches and shot scores of protesters with non-lethal rounds.”
Ms Panahi said, “Chief Shane Patton says he is bruised by the work his force had to do during COVID lockdowns”.
“PR campaigns and sob stories about feeling bruised from police command are no substitute for accountability,” Ms Panahi said
