no BBQ for Australia Day, banned by Police

Tomorrow is Australia Day, and it is a tradition that (white) Australians celebrate Australia Day in this sunburn country.

However, an "unAustralian" Police officer is banning law-abiding tax paying residents' rights to have BBQs on Australia Day.

The excuses: hot weather (this is not beautiful Boston, we don't have beautiful snow in January to cool people down) and some legal drinking. Further on, the place is famous for its Cronulla Riot (back in 2005)

The proud Australians said that they won't be ordered by such unAustralian request.

Here's the news report (Seven News Sydney)

Unfortunately, NSW Police does have the powers to issue orders when officers seem fit. An advice to all law-abiding tax paying citizens: should police issues an order without reasonable judgement (translate: police power abuse), record their power abusive actions, shame them on news media. And better yet, report to your MPs to have such power removed.
