A video has recently come out showing a pregnant Australian woman being arrested in Melbourne in her home in front of her children for a post on social media.
The woman was arrested for posting about a lockdown protest on social media. The officer who showed up had a warrant and also seized all of her devices and computer as well.
In the video, the woman pleaded with police that she could just delete the post instead of going to jail as she had an ultrasound in an hour but they arrested her anyway.
In the second video, one officer even yells at the crying mother saying he can seize all the devices in her home including the one her husband was holding to record the incident
Shouting at her as she weeps & then threatening to take every phone in the house regardless of who it belongs to...Victoria Police going after the big crooks.

According to BreitBart
Police in Australia arrested a pregnant 28-year-old woman in front of her partner and two children Wednesday for allegedly planning a coronavirus lockdown protest and promoting it on Facebook.
Police in the state of Victoria took the woman, Zoe Buhler, into custody at her home after she created a “freedom day” event on Facebook calling for people to peacefully gather against the government’s lockdown measures.
“As some of you may have seen the government has gone to extreme measures and are using scare tactics through the media to prevent the Melbourne protest,” the now-deleted event description read, ABC News reports.
“Here in Ballarat we can be a voice for those in stage four lockdowns. We can be seen and heard and hopefully make a difference!”
Video of the arrest shared on social media shows officers handcuffing Buhler in front her partner and children. In the video, Buhler becomes increasingly distressed as she tells officers she is pregnant.
