There was an anti lockdown protest in Melbourne on Saturday 21st August 2021. It likely would have been peaceful, if as in much of Europe say, the police just kept their distance and let the people walk to Parliament House to listen to some speeches. Being outdoors there is very little chance of any viruses being spread, especially in the sunshine.
Instead because this is the nanny-police state of Australia, currently the laughingstock of the world, the police had to get in their faces and there was a fair bit of fighting:

The one who says “come on pussies here we go” appears to be Inspector Jamie Templeton of the Special Operations Group, who looks to be a nasty piece of work:
Jamie appears to be hated by all who come in contact with him:
The man who opens fire is Acting Sergeant Kristian Schouten:
Both men are armed and dangerous, and should not be approached.
