Ep 4: Counter Terrorism Raids, Body Cameras and Facebook Foibles

Police presser re counter-terrorism raids 18/04/15

This week’s Prima Facie went to air just as news broke about overnight counter-terrorism raids in Melbourne by the Australian Federal Police and Victoria Police. In this episode we discuss ‘use of force’ by police, the new counter terrorism laws, and the way in which police obtain a search warrant in Victoria. Is it really an independent, transparent process?

Also this episode, a trial of new body-mounted cameras by police in a number of Australian states and territories, and the teenager remanded in custody for armed robbery after allegedly taunting police on Facebook. Why hasn’t he been released on bail?
