Queensland Police’s Orwellian ‘Fixated Persons Unit’

According to the official brochures, the Queensland Fixated Threat Assessment Centre (QFTAC) is an agency staffed by Queensland Police officers and clinicians from the Queensland Forensic Mental Health Service to identify people who are thought to “fixate” on government officials and other public identities.

Thank goodness, the QFTAC assures us, all this is not just a means of locking away political agitators and the agency has no interest in people who merely hold dissident political opinions.
