Queensland Police Commissioner Katarina Carroll has continued her hardline stance on police officers refusing to get the Covid vaccine by suspending 1200 of them. This is in addition to approximately 500 support staff who are set to be stood down as well.
Commissioner Carroll has defended her actions and claimed she will still be able to keep Queensland safe by taking steps such as fast-tracking recruits, increasing overtime, giving officers more shifts and moving officers around across the state.
Police Minister Mark Ryan does not seem concerned with the plan and has given it his full support even though fast tracking recruits could be dangerous not only to the public but also to the recruits themselves who will not have the level of training expected to deal with the many situations that will confront them in their role. Then add to that a tired, overworked and drained police force forced to push themselves to the extremes to fill the gaps from the lost officers.
Queensland is also facing further crisis over these forced vaccine mandates across the states with mandatory vaccination for all health workers who work in hospitals across Queensland as well as all Queensland Ambulance staff. Hundreds of staff across these organisations are expected to quit.
These continued mandates are expected to fuel further protests as people protest their loss of free choice over what they put into their bodies. Many are also questioning the narrative behind the vaccine push when science has already proven that the vaccines are ineffective at preventing infection and that the vaccinated can also spread the virus to both vaccinated and the unvaccinated.
Now with this science, why exactly is Queensland pushing vaccine mandates? Online theories suggest that Queensland’s Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young is pushing the Pfizer vaccine onto people as her husband Professor Graeme Nimmo has served as an adviser to the Covid-19 vaccine manufacturer Pfizer. Now it is quite common for those placed in high up positions within the medical community to be on advisory boards and the like. This is not evidence that any crimes have been committed but there is no doubt that this is a massive conflict of interest. The very person responsible for providing the health advice to the Queensland health minister and premier has a husband who is an advisor for the very company that makes one of the vaccines that are being mandated on the people. It could be argued that this is grounds for a royal commission to investigate these links and the information provided.
Supporters of the vaccine mandates might argue back that the decision to mandate vaccines despite the lack of infection prevention provided by the vaccines is to prevent a crisis within our hospital system as the vaccines are claimed to reduce severity, therefore reducing the number of sick requiring hospitalisation. However, this makes no sense when the Queensland government are themselves creating a very crisis across all our health and emergency services by forcing the vaccines on those who wish to exercise their free choice. This is a huge crisis in the making with so many experienced professionals leaving healthcare and our emergency services. We will see major staff shortages as well as the run-on effect of years of experience removed from these critical services.
It can now be argued that these mandates themselves are a bigger problem and up coming crisis for the state then what the actual pandemic was ever able to inflict on Queensland.
