On the KP Picket

by Roy Hives

The sign read "Biloela Politics Of Hate."  "Give it up, mate. They're all pedophiles!" This from a young fella zipping up the footpath on his motorized scooter. Thanks Channel 7, Channel 9 and sundry other media for their sensitive coverage of the 'arrest' of an asylum seeker already detained indefinitely in Kangaroo Point.

One might ask why the Queensland Police Service chose to publicize the action on their website. Did you know about that, Anastasia? Same sign. Lady pulls over, winds down the passenger side window.

"I come from Biloela, and we don't hate!"

I'm speechless.
