I reported last week on the lockdown in Alice Springs, Australia.
Alice Springs is one of the world’s most remote towns and they entered a full lockdown due to one COVID-19 case.
And it wasn’t even a locally-acquired case.
It was a passenger transporting through town.
But that didn’t stop officials from enforcing a 72-hour lockdown.
Alice Springs becomes latest Australian town to lockdown, as anger mounts over the slow coronavirus vaccine rollout.

No new COVID cases recorded in NT, but Alice Springs to go into lockdown https://t.co/96FN1Dqss5

And the police officers were drunk with power to bully and harass Aussies minding their own business.
One citizen who faced the brutality of the Alice Springs police officers was Hayden Williams.
Hayden was walking to his car and sipping a coffee.
That’s when multiple police officers confronted him about not wearing a mask while drinking his coffee.
Watch what happened to Hayden below:
Arrested and fined $5,000.
And that comes after the government forces your business to close.
It’s a disgusting abuse of power and these police officers should be ashamed to wear badges.
They’re bullies and tools of the tyrannical government to enforce these Orwellian lockdowns.
China quietly taking over. "Drinking water outdoors without a license punishable by jail + $5,000 fine." https://t.co/JLYPuu0euD

Rebel News reported:
A baffled Mr Williams tried to explain that he was drinking, making it impossible to wear a mask.
Police refused his reason and demanded he wears a mask while drinking anyways.
The officer who declined to give her name and badge number explained to Mr Williams that “Alice Springs is a vulnerable community with a lot of sick people”.
There has not been a single recorded case of locally transmitted Coronavirus in the remote town, ever.
And did I mention Hayden Williams was drinking a coffee at the time?
Mr Williams then continued to walk back to his car when the three officers knocked his coffee to the ground and arrested him for failing to wear a mask.
He was taken to the local watchhouse and released twenty minutes later with a $5,056 fine.
We’ve told Hayden not to pay the fine and added him to our FightTheFines.com.au campaign.
We’re not paying the fine either.
But with your help, we’re going to fight it, taking it as far as we have to.
