“Can you hear, can you hear the thunder? You’d better run, you’d better take cover.”
The “Land Down Under” has gone full dystopian mode, with uniformed “men at work” now cracking down on the citizenry with seemingly little regard for anyone’s well-being.
The Australian police forces -empowered by draconian lockdown policies and a monopoly of force- have seemingly embraced their more brutal side in many cities, be it dealing with anti-lockdown protesters or spraying old women in the face with pepper spray after shoving her to the ground.
Twitter is currently inundated with video of Australian police brutality, and some notable figures have chimed in on what is happening.
“This is literally about wearing paper masks,” James Woods captioned a retweeted video of police tactical teams advancing upon a crowd of protesters opening fire with their (presumably less-lethal) weapons as they surged forward.
Another video, featured under the #VicPolViolence hashtag, shows a man being callously thrown to the ground at the Flinders St. Station in Melbourne.
A third, and perhaps the most brutal video, was shared by the Polish account “Mr.Bartholo” on Sunday.

In the 25-second clip, an officer can be seen curb-stomping a detained man’s head as he lay prostrate on the pavement.
“A brave Australian policeman corrects a poorly fitted mask behind the ear of an Australian citizen to protect him from the lethal SARS-CoV-2 virus, thus fulfilling his duty to help,” the sarcastically-written tweet read, translated from Polish.
Video from September 18 shows an elderly woman -who was holding the Australian flag at the time- being thrown to the ground and doused with OC spray.
Much of the footage has not received significant media coverage on large-scale networks outside of Australia, to include the United States.
