Australian Anti-Lockdown Suspect’s Arrest Draws Controversy

The arrest of a woman in Australia for promoting an anti-lockdown protest online has drawn criticism, after video of the incident went viral.

Footage shows officers handcuffing pregnant woman Zoe-Lee Buhler, 28, in her home in Victoria on Wednesday in front of her partner and children.

She starts crying during the arrest, telling police: “I didn’t realise I was doing anything wrong.”
Authorities have defended the officers, saying they acted appropriately.
