Logan, Qld: molotovs thrown at police station

24 February: Three molotov cocktails have been hurled at Logan’s police headquarters, weeks after an Aboriginal woman was shot by police with a Taser and blinded in one eye.

Police said while one bottle remained intact, two bottles ignited causing minor damage to one police vehicle parked outside. They said they weren’t sure whether those responsible for throwing the devices were on foot or in a passing vehicle.

Police believe the devices were thrown between 3.30 and 4am this morning. CCTV footage from the front of the police station was still being examined.

It follows weeks of tension in Logan after Woodridge woman Sheila Oakley was shot in the eye by police with a Taser and two marches were held by the local indigenous community calling for the officer responsible to be stood down.
