Well we now know that Covid-19 turns brains to mush. Here is Peter Dutton:
Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton has said a proportion of individuals stripping supermarkets of essential items will be prosecuted by the Australian Federal Police, suggesting but not confirming they are linked to criminal enterprises.
“We will come down on them like a ton of bricks … I believe they are the ones who have created this pattern of hoarding,” Mr Dutton told 2GB.
“They (Australians) are following the behaviour of people who aren’t purchasing for themselves – they’re doing it for profit, and reasons that are unacceptable.
“If you have photos, or registration numbers, or if you have instances … photos, intelligence or information, I want you to call Crime Stoppers.”
Hmmmmmm. Let’s start randomly photographing people in the street, doing their shopping, calling the cops.
