Ben Falconer to appeal mandatory vaccination decision


Following the judgment in his judicial review of WA’s mandatory vaccination instructions, which upheld those instructions, attorneys for Ben Falconer, along with his solicitor, ruled that an appeal should be made to the Court of Appeal of WA against this decision.

Additionally, Ben Falconer and his colleagues, who are currently being dismissed on full pay, are set to be sacked next week by WA’s new Captain Harris, Commissioner Col Blanch. He has now replaced Gov. Chris Dawson, who instituted the guidelines in the first place and will sign off on the layoffs (as governor).

So much for the separation of powers.

All of this comes despite the removal of mandatory vaccination instructions for police months ago, the CDC announcing last month that there is no difference between vaccinated and unvaccinated, and the inconvenient reality that police resignations are at an all-time high – 100 officers have left in the past three months alone. Col Blanch said these disciplinary actions are necessary to run an effective police force. Officers are dismissed by a commissioner because he has lost confidence in them. Judging by the number of resignations, the base has lost faith in the commissioner.

It won’t be long before the public loses faith in them too, if crime rates continue to rise and the thin blue line gets even thinner. In fact, WA Police numbers have fallen for the first time since they embarked on a massive recruitment drive.

There are now 1,000 fewer officers in the field than three months ago.

As Ben said on Liam Bartlett’s 6PR morning program Today, in the past, police officers have been disciplined for violating the Penal Code, for example by illegally accessing personal data, but they have not been fired. Ben and his colleagues are being targeted for standing up for a principle, and in doing so, he and his colleagues are not sacrificing their careers lightly. For them, the rule of law means, among other things, that a person should not have to choose between a job that he needs and a shot that he does not want. There is a fundamental principle at play here in the name of defending freedom, and tyranny triumphs when good people sit idly by and do nothing.

Ben and his colleague are currently carrying the financial burden alone. It is imperative that they get the support they need to defend the fundamental rights and freedoms that belong to all of us and that are constantly being eroded.
