[QUOTE=Yasoda;394698627]Have never seen so many police at a festival - scratch that in one place - in my life. Is it because they get paid double time to work public holidays? Or dId they legitimately get a tip off that some big time drug smugglers were planning to walk in with 1kg of cocaine and a thousand pills in a bumbag?/[/QUOTE]
Don't ever remember seeing dogs at Field Day in the previous 6 years and there was like 4-6 patrolling the entry. I got pulled out by an undercover cop for apparently 'attempting to avoid the path of a dog'. More a case of trying to walk in a straight line to the ticket scanners only to be tripped up by a swarm of pesky mutts and dumb handlers.
Not in that game anymore so thankfully had nothing on me, but still had to do the shameful hat off / shoes off / socks off / empty pockets at the gate which wasted 15 mins. Then because the twat wasn't satisfied that his hunch was wrong, had to do the trek back to the Drug Detection Unit for another more thorough and pointless search copping a whole heap of attitude from the amateur hack - telling me how I'd dodged it by 'gulping them down up the road' or 'still pinging from the night before'. F**king dumb ****'. Stopped short of the internal investigation, but still wasted 40 mins of my time no doubt trying to reach his quota for the day.
And the NSW Police wonder why they have no respect...
