More than a sniff of trouble

Living near Redfern railway station I’m all too aware of how ubiquitous police sniffer dogs have become on our public transport network in recent years.  NSW Greens MP David Shoebridge has obtained figures on the limited effectiveness of this invasive means of law enforcement, and has written an article for the ABC’s online opinion page The Drum – http://www.abc.net.au/unleashed/3728678.html.  I highly recommend it to anyone concerned about civil liberties or the direction of the past and present state government’s “tough on crime” attitude.
