Police Apologise for Ejecting 78er from Sydney Mardi Gras Parade
The Relationship between the Police & the Community has come under scrutiny again after the NSW Police ejected Barbara Karpinski from the Mardi Gras Parade allegedly because her Peace Protest Sign was considered offensive.
While an apology has been provided it would appear that it is unclear if any measures of accountability have been put in place and this whole matter only increases the scepticism surrounding the Police in Australia and raises the question why should Police be marching in LGBTIQ+ Parades in uniforms given their history & continued problematic engagements with the Community?
