Ray Hadley ignites over flare-wielding protester, calls for mandatory penalties
Ray Hadley is calling for tough new penalties for illegal protesters in NSW to be made mandatory.
Fireproof Australia, responsible for a number of disruptive protests last week, has claimed the storming of an NRL match at the weekend.
A flare-wielding protester stormed the field midway though the second half yesterday in a major change of tactics from blocking traffic.
A man of the same age and name had last week appeared before the courts, where he walked away after a severe dressing down by the magistrate.
This was despite new laws of up to two years’ jail and fines of up to $22,000 for those blocking major facilities, ports and railways.
“Don’t talk to me about tougher penalties until they’re mandatory,” Ray said.
