A woman called “incredibly selfish” by the Victorian authorities wrote on her Facebook page “regrets nothing,” days after she made
headlines for appearing to fail to tell the police where she was going at a checkpoint for a Melbourne car.
The woman, identified as Eve Black, appeared to boast in a video she posted to Facebook about missing one of the
police roadblocks-but it has since been taken down-where she declined to give specifics of where she was going to the officer.
“I don’t need to answer your questions,” Ms Black said to police.
“Have I committed a crime?”
The police officer in the video responded “no, keeping going” before waving the woman through the checkpoint.
Victoria Police now plan to follow up the incident.
Since then, Ms Black has removed much of the material from her Facebook account, except for a
post where she wrote: “I regret nothing. I’m just sick of the violence and threats. Wake up, sleep.”
Police minister Lisa Neville said reporters knew the woman
yesterday and they should “go and check her out.”
“She may not have realised the police officer was wearing a body worn camera,” she said.
The woman on Facebook spoke about travelling through the checkpoint and refusing to answer police.
“No fine, drove straight out of Melbourne, they took no info from me,” she wrote.
“No license, no questions of theirs were answered. They work for us, not the other way around.
“You’re being taken advantage of by a system designed to fail you. And they’ve done such a good job, that you don’t even see it.
“I don’t believe there’s a pandemic. It’s a SCAMdemic. Know your rights.”
Deputy Commissioner Rick Nugent called the defiance a “selfish and childish act”.
Ms Neville said police would reinforce to their members that they must view a person’s license before they allow them to travel through a checkpoint.
“This person sought to embarrass this police officer,” she said.
“If feel bad for the police officer.”
