Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi says we need to better protect our police and emergency service workers after a 26-year-old man became the fifth person to be arrested over a violent weekend brawl which left police officers injured in Melbourne’s south.
Police arrested a man from Prahan and charged him with a string of offences including two counts of assaulting a police officer and assault by kicking.
A childcare worker and young mother, who allegedly punched a police officer in the head as he tried to arrest her brother, has also been changed along with three other men over the violent St Kilda brawl in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The group had been celebrating a 30th birthday when it's alleged the woman's brother kneed another woman in the genitals, before breaking away from police multiple times as they tried to apprehend him.
Senator Bernardi has told Paul Murray Live on Sky News this kind of behaviour is inexcusable and we need to toughen up to better protect the people in our society whose job it is to protect us.
