The NSW Police Force have announced they will be refusing entry to ANYONE searched by a dog at the Above and Beyond festival, even if no drugs are found.
People who have spent close to $150 on tickets and months looking forward to the event will see their tickets torn up by police.
It is not a crime to have a drug dog falsely indicate you are carrying drugs.
Drug dogs get it wrong up to 75% of the time. This is nothing more than the NSW Police punishing young people for the abject failure of their drug dog program.
It’s hard to see how this kind of action by police could be legal, seeing how it involves punishment in the absence of any offence.
That's why we need your help.
We're seeking to take the NSW Police to court to stop this. That means an injuction this Friday and to make this happen we need you to pitch in.
Going to court isn't free, even with lawyers acting for us for nothing we need $900 to kick it off.
Every dollar raised will be allocated directly to the court costs for the festival goers challenging the NSW Police. No funds will be retained by Sniff Off.
