Police raids against journalists in Australia

In Sydney and Canberra, police has raided journalists who have revealed allegations of unlawful killings and misconduct by Australian special forces in Afghanistan and that the government was considering giving spy agencies greater domestic surveillance powers. Alan Jones says many Australians would agree that the Australian Federal Police (AFP) mishandled these cases. The incident has also reminded him of other controversial decisions made by the AFP and brought back memories of whistleblower Richard Boyle, who is facing a maximum 161-year jail sentence after exposing abuses of power.
