Yeah but without a warrant they can monitor anyone and use it against them. That’s Chinese Communist type monitoring.
I think there are a variety of ways that they can get around that. eg. if you are a suspected unlawful non citizen, s 18 of the migration act says you can get anything on them.

I am not sure about the terrorism act, but I reckon if there was some form of "reasonable suspicion" they could access you stuff. I might have just crossed the reasonable suspicion threshold by opening that racist NZ youtube clip above :rolleyes:

I just accept that if I chose to use any online stuff (ie. engage with modern society) that it could be used against me. It's crap, but that where we are at.

so they're not first....



"but after what happened in Christchurch I don't have a problem with that"

i bet you love the saying "if you've got nothing to hide you've got nothing to worry about"
I love it a lot more than 50 people being murdered mate.
Take the tinfoil hat off and have a think..what if it was one of your family ? You'd be the first calling for surveillance of these nutjobs.
They're not sitting online talking about Trump and what a fine man he his, they're trying to incite violence.
There's a big difference between freedom of speech, and using the internet as a tool to incite gullible idiots to commit crime

Did the guy say on the youtube what he'd been up to ? I didn't watch the whole thing because frankly he came across as a bit of a dick.
But looks like we're only getting one side of the story here.

so much sooking over St Ardern being like the rest of the scummy politicians and NZ having a terrible government....just like Australian (heaven forbid i don't mention we're no better!)

nah nothing wrong with police questioning people over social media comments, no thought policing happening there (as long as they align with your own political views)

Can you answer the question of what the social media comments were? Context is everything.

Has to fake.

Surely.

Maybe.
I posted about shareblue the other day.. media matters for America is another one of David Brocks.

he’s another fruit loop, who gets paid way to much money to direct elections. I’ve also got a hunch Will Ferrell s character Mugatu is based on him.

The focus on Trump in relation to this topic is indicative of OCD.
The topic is "Trump handling of Covid 19" Its the fricking thread title. This is one thread, to discuss Trump and his handling. There is another whole thread that focuses on Covid.

If you don't want to talk about Trumps handling of Covid, just ignore the thread.

For someone so rational you really are a certified moron at times.

In the first example, the police were invited onto the property. That guy filming was being a smart @ss, youtube hero. Not quite a police state there.
Not only that, they were polite but left when he didn't turn off his camera.

They didn't take his camera, damage it and charge him. Can you even film coppers in Australia any more?

Absolutely you can. They can't touch you or take anything unless you are being arrested

Which one?
Guessing this from NY times:

RIGHT NOW

President Trump said he has been taking hydroxychloroquine, an unproven drug against Covid-19, as a preventive measure for a week and a half. The F.D.A. has warned that the drug can cause dangerous heart rhythm abnormalities in coronavirus patients.

And what the heck...
