An elderly man from Australia appeared to collapse after he was being arrested by police officers in the country for allegedly “failing to wear a face mask” while walking around outdoors in a park. Let that sink in for a minute.
“A man is demanding answers after sharing distressing footage of his elderly dad collapsing and suffering spasms as he’s arrested for failing to wear a face mask in public,” the Daily Mail went on to say in an exclusive report. “The stomach-churning incident was filmed on Monday morning in Brisbane’s Botanic Gardens after Queensland’s lockdown was extended to stem the spread of Covid in the community.”
“According to the man’s son, who shared the footage online, he suffers from a medical condition which causes him breathing difficulties and heart problems,” the report stated. “During the arrest, he fell to the floor and started to spasm, gasping for air and flailing as he tried to reach for his backpack – which contained his medication.”
According to the report, four police officers questioned the man. They then proceeded to arrest him and lead him away from the park “for failing to answer their questions ‘reasonably.’”
His partner “repeatedly told officers that the man had an exemption and tried to provide personal details.”
“According to the man’s son, he is required to carry medication with him at all times and had a legitimate medical exemption from wearing the face mask,” the Daily Mail then stated, with the man’s son stating that his dad “was interrogated as to why he was there, what he was doing and why he wasn’t wearing a mask… he answered all of these questions.”
“Do you believe me now you pr***s?” the man’s partner asked the officers as he fell to the ground. She then told an officer to give her space to administer his medication.
“Here, let me do it darling… Absolutely disgraceful,” she stated, clearly agitated by her partner’s treatment.
“He did not do anything illegal, he did not retaliate in a violent manner. He was conducting himself peacefully and not looking for trouble,” the man’s son stated.
“This hurt me more than anything I’ve experienced… Seeing my father get arrested as he was having a seizure,” he added.
Police spoke with the Daily Mail Australia and said they are currently investigating the situation.
“On August 2, police patrolling in the Botanical Gardens arrested a man for failing to comply with directions under the Public Health Act 2005 (Qld),” a spokesperson for the police said, adding, “During the arrest, the man appeared to collapse.”
“The Queensland Ambulance Service was requested, attended and did not identify a medical issue however the man was transported to hospital as a precaution,” the spokesperson said. “As police had discontinued the arrest at that time, investigations are continuing into any possible offenses committed on that day.”
Folks, this is the kind of madness that is no doubt on the way here if we don’t continue to stand up for the truth concerning mask mandates and their inherent oppressive nature.
