Footage from a news conference shows a police chief in Australia chastising a man because when authorities paid him a visit, he wasn’t at home and had gone out for some “fresh air.”
The officer said that the incident had been detected as a result of the military and New South Wales police undertaking home checks on people who are supposed to be self-isolating under the country’s draconian lockdown regime.
The cop says that officers visited a home in south-west Sydney and “found a person that should be there, wasn’t there, they made a number of enquiries and not that long after, that person returned to the front of the house in a motor vehicle.”
Police then gave the man a “penalty infringement notice” which “stated that he hopped in his car and went out for some fresh air and hadn’t been anywhere else.”
The man was then publicly chastised for the crime of seeking out “fresh air.”
